Joanna Cruz and family

Joanna and her family

We see Joanna and her family on the front lawn of their house after the Clark family get back from the Sale house where they've left Matt. Joanna calls across and invites them all to her daughter's birthday party.

That night Alicia sees Peter Dawson attacking her after he became Infected. Alicia tries to go and help but Madison stops her. Joanna appears to get away but Alicia and Madison can still hear her screams. Its most likely that she was bitten and turned.

"The Dog"Edit

The Cruz family dog is flees to the Clark house, covered with blood, which had possibly come from one of the Cruz members. After the national guard run through the neighborhood, they clean up the infected and their bodies. Madison goes towards Joanna's house, and spots blood splattered on the deflated birthday decoration, where Joanna was attacked by Peter Dawson. Its assumed after she reanimated, The Militia Shot Her after The Army went through the neighborhood.
