Chad finds safety in Texas' bar, and decides to go with Odin to get guns.

Eventually, the group get contact with Gavin Cart.
Chad, Miles, Odin and Al search for Waynesburg Refugee Camp when they find Ridley Johnson and Esther Tricker. They take them along, and are soon enough met by William Seck, who takes them along to Rogersville.
With Odin, Chad goes back to Waynesburg to get the rest. Here they crash, but is eventually saved by Texas and the others.
Though not crazy about it, Chad decides to stay in Rogersville.
Chad has been hired as a cop, but quickly takes over the leadership of Rogersville after Sylvest is killed.
After being kicked out of Rogersville by Garrett White, Chad finds himself depressed over Odin's death. He is comforted by William, to whom he bonds.
Chad, along with William, Ridley and Nick, discovers Doug Tallie's farm where Nick is killed by accident.
They attend Nick's funeral, but as Lia kills Doug's son, they are kicked off the farm, and eventually run into Bobby Lunar.
As Bobby Lunar kidnap Lia, Esther and Kerri, Miles is shot and the group is forced to leave. They head back to Doug, who agrees to help them.
The group eventually meet Kevin Gardner, who wants to help them. They head to the trailer park and prepare to attack.
Chad, Texas and Kevin try to find the kidnapped women, when they encounter Alan Locker, who helps them. They are eventually met by the women, and get back to William, who is waiting at the truck.
At the truck, Bobby Lunar is holding William at gunpoint, and kills him and Alan. Lia kills Bobby Lunar, and the group head back to Doug's farm.
The remaining parts of the group agree to go to Rogersville.
Going to Rogersville, the group is met by Al and Timmy. They show the group the destroyed Rogersville.
With the remaining survivors of Rogersville, the group heads to the coast. Chad eventually begins a relationship with Margaret.
They get to the harbor, and Chad, along with the rest, begins to look for a boat. J-Tech introduces himself, but promises not to reveal Chad's past as a convict.
Chad struggles with J-Tech, and is told by Timmy to reveal it all. When he doesn't want to, J-Tech finds time to kill Margaret, which leaves Chad to kill J-Tech. Unfortunately, J-Tech gets to stab Chad, leaving him with a deadly wound.
Chad doesn't tell anyone, and manages to help the rest of the group prepare the boat. He gives Garrett his spot, and says his goodbyes.
