When Daryl, Michonne, Carol, Siddiq, and Yumiko find Tara among the staked heads, it is revealed that a few other key innocent characters were also killed off-screen, like Carol’s adoptive son, Henry, and another of the younger survivors, Enid.
Although Tara’s actual death doesn’t happen on the show in front of viewers’ eyes, it’s understood that Alpha kills her, along with the others, to make a point.
Following her exit from the show, Alanna told Entertainment Weekly that she would miss “the cast and crew the most” and she would even miss working the long strenuous hours.
Clearly, all the hard work was worth the payoff and even now, fans miss Tara.
