"Rick, we've been trying to hear you, it's been really difficult. (...) We know, it's terrible, they just don't understand do they. (...) Of course you do, but first you have to tell us everything about the people your living with."
—Megan talking to Rick.[src]

Megan Philips was a girl that was harnessed when the 7th Mass was attacked. She fell behind when the 7th Mass ran away from the Skitters, and her father was killed when he tried to save her.


Season 1Edit

"Sanctuary (Part 1)"Edit

She came back, and with the Skitters speaking through her, told the 7th Mass all they wanted was the kids. This sprung the 7th Mass' idea to deliver children to them in exchange for being left alone. Megan took a child from the 2nd mass named Eli that Clayton gave to Skitters in exchange for safety. At first, Eli trusted her, but upon seeing her harness, tried to escape and was stunned by a Mech.

"Eight Hours"Edit

When Rick fled the base, he came across Megan, whose skin was turning into Skitter skin. He told her everything about the base under her promise that she'd bring him back to the Skitters when he did. However, once she got the information she wanted, she ignored his pleas and left without him.

Season 5Edit


When the Espheni Queen is killed, the entire Espheni empire is killed along after such as the Overlords and other Espheni creations. If Megan had yet to die from the effects of the harness, her mutation or killed by the resistance she was wiped out with the rest of the Espheni.

  • Due to her being harnessed early in the invasion, it is assumed that Megan has been covered head-to-toe in skitter skin, like Tyler.
