In season 2 of The Walking Dead, Maggie (Lauren Cohan) is introduced as the farmer's daughter in episode 2, "Bloodletting." She would make quite the impact on Rick's group as she saved Andrea's (Lauren Cohan) life, killing a walker while on horseback.

Throughout the 11 seasons of the series, Maggie becomes a wife, a mother, and a leader and continues her story in the fourth spinoff, The Walking Dead: Dead City.

Best Maggie moments on The Walking Dead

Maggie lends help to a group of perfect strangers (Season 2)

Maggie helping to lend a hand to the group of strangers is undoubtedly an iconic one in Maggie's story. When Rick (Andrew Lincoln) brings his son Carl (Chandler Riggs) to her family farm after being accidentally shot, Maggie selflessly offers to help. Rick's group are strangers to her, yet she springs into action to find Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies), who has no idea her son has been shot.

Maggie delivers Judith (Season 3)

Maggie would again come to the aid of The Grimes family when Lori goes into labor amidst a time of chaos in the prison. Sadly, she must perform a c-section in a boiler room, a procedure that saves the baby's life, which in turn causes the death of Lori. It was a horrible experience for Maggie and Carl, who had to put his mother down so she wouldn't reanimate. It took a lot of courage to do what Maggie did in this situation.

Maggie and Glenn (Season 4 )

There are many couples in The Walking Dead universe who were just meant to be. Maggie and Glenn (Steven Yeun) are one of these couples, and their relationship holds a special place in viewers' hearts because it unfolded before their eyes. One amazing moment in their relationship was after the fall of the prison, and neither gave up searching for the other. (Kind of sounds familiar, The Ones Who Live) When they met up in the tunnel, Gleggie fans rejoiced.

Maggie and Leah (Season 11)

In season 11, Leah (Lynn Collins), a member of the Reapers, returns and quickly gets on the wrong side of the Commonwealth by killing soldiers and stealing guns. Deputy Governor Lance Armstrong (Josh Hamilton) sees an opportunity to use Leah in his scheme to kill Maggie.

The women battle it out in the old cabin Leah once shared with Daryl (Norman Reedus). Leah wants revenge on Maggie, who killed her Reaper family. It is a fantastic fight scene that ends with Daryl saving Maggie's life by killing Leah.

Maggie and Carol clear a Savior's compound on their own (Season 6)

In season 6, Maggie and Carol (Melissa McBride) were captured by Paula (Alicia Witt) and other members of the Saviors. These two were able to free themselves and clear two compounds of Saviors and walkers. And they accomplished this with no losses on their side and no assistance from anyone else.

Worst Maggie moments on The Walking Dead

While the good outweighs the bad, and the above-mentioned moments are only a small number of her greatest, Maggie has done some less than ideal things.

Maggie doesn't look for Beth (Season 5)

It is understandable that after making a commitment to Glenn, Maggie is concerned about him after the prison falls. But, even after reuniting with Glenn, she doesn't look for Beth (Emily Kinney).

This is her flesh and blood, and although she seems saddened by the loss, she never once expresses any interest in looking for her sister. It is unclear what the writers were thinking about this storyline, but it was a poor decision for Maggie to choose not to search for her.

Maggie leaving (Season 9)

When Maggie left with her infant son Hershel, it seemed like such a strange move. She was doing well as the leader of Hilltop and had made many close friends like Tara (Allana Masterson) and Jesus (Tom Payne), who assisted her. Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) was imprisoned at Alexandria, so she didn't have to see him.

While losing a spouse is something that will significantly affect a person, especially in such a gruesome way, Rosita (Christian Serratos) and Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) lost Abraham in the same fashion. They were able to pick up the pieces and continue. Maggie should have remained at Hilltop with her friends and found family to help her raise her son. Add returning to her list of good moments.

Maggie holding a grudge over Negan so many years later

When Maggie returns, she is unprepared for the freedoms granted to Negan. She hasn't been present for his change of heart and what he has done to try and redeem his past. Throughout season 11, the storyline becomes quite tiring as she is hell-bent on killing the man who killed her husband. He had obviously changed for the better, or he wouldn't have been trusted with the responsibilities given to him.

Before the end of the series, she hasn't forgiven him but does begin to trust him. This leads to the Dead City storyline, where she betrays him.

Maggie will return in the second season of The Walking Dead: Dead City, which will most likely be released in 2025.
