While being flown out to safety, Travis (Cliff Curtis) was shot in the neck by a bullet and in order to avoid turning in front of Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), he jumped out of the helicopter to his death.

“Travis is dead,” showruner Dave told Entertainment Weekly. “I think what was important from the perspective of the audience as well as for the characters, it was something worse again in the fact that we thought we’ve achieved some level of safety. We thought we were going to be okay, and then out of nowhere in the random violence of the apocalypse, suddenly Travis is taken from us. And in his last action, he realizes how bad his wound is before Alicia does and he knows that life is seeping out of him and it’s only a matter of time before he dies, and he doesn’t want her to be responsible for putting him down.”
