Samantha Walker was a survivor of Oceanic Flight 815. Before the crash, she accidentally murdered a girl and started to get blackmailed by a witness; William Hall.

Before the crashEdit

Her sister's deathEdit

One day, when having a family day out, walking, the Walkers' were approached by a woman, Rose Nadler, who had lost her pet dog. She asked if they had seen it, but they said they hadn't. Meanwhile, Veronica started to feel dizzy. She then collapsed in front of everyone.

Elliot, Geraldine, Samantha and Veronica then went to a hospital were they were seen by Dr. Christian Shephard. Veronica was diagnosed with cancer.

Veronica then passed away to her illness, and the family all went to her funeral, were the priest gave his deepest condolences. ("Pax Postremo")

Her mother's disappearanceEdit

When William witnessed Samantha accidentally murder a girl, he used this information to blackmail Elliot into giving him money.

One morning, Samantha was woke up by her father and William arguing. She watched down the stairs, while being comforted by her mother as William threatened Elliot, saying 'You're gonna regret this'.

An unknown amount of time later, Elliot woke Samantha up as he received a letter. Samantha read it and realised that it was a ransom note, asking money for the return of Geraldine. Obeying these rules, Samantha, William and Elliot flew to Australia, where they had to hand in the money. They placed the money where they were told too.

But, meanwhile, Geraldine returned home, safely, after returning from a Spa trip. It was then revealed that William sent her to a spa trip so he could pretend she was missing. He then sent the ransom note asking for the money, which he most likely took later on in Australia. ("Say Goodbye") ("I Spy With My Little Eye")

Oceanic Flight 815Edit

Before boarding Oceanic Flight 815, she visited an airport café with her father and William. After ignoring William when he asked her to get some napkins, William went to get them instead. In his absence, Samantha complained about the relationship with William, but Elliot insisted that she had to stay with him or else 'everything falls apart'. When Will returned, she denied talking about him. ("A New Beginning, Part 2")

When boarding the plane, William grasped Samantha's hand tightly as he pulled her; she was clearly upset. Elliot stood by in the background, knowing he could do nothing. ("Flying the Nest, Part 3")

On the IslandEdit

After the crash of Oceanic Flight 815, Samantha ran through the camp, screaming and crying as she looked for her father and boyfriend.
