In the introduction, Kathy was first seen sitting and resting on the floor with a bandaged head, arguing with her husband Alan in the Entrance Plaza. He blamed her for their present predicament as the two argued. She then accused him of infidelity, and he replied he couldn't wait to see the look on her face when the zombies get her.

When the zombies broke into the plaza, she attempted to head for the stairs, but was killed before she could reach to safety due to her severe limp and the overwhelming number of zombies.
