The Alexandria Safe-Zone is a fictional location featured in the AMC survival horror series The Walking Dead. The location is based on that shown in The Walking Dead comic book series by Image Comics. In the TV series, the Alexandria Safe-Zone first appeared in the season five episode, "The Distance".
The Alexandria Safe-Zone was a community of survivors located in Alexandria, Virginia. Two members of the group, Eric and Aaron would go out beyond the perimeter of the community to recruit other survivors to bolster their ranks. Another member of the community was Pete, who was a surgeon that Aaron attested could do "amazing things". Aaron met Rick Grimes' group and told them about Alexandria. He showed them photographs of the gated barricade as well as that of some of the homes inside. Completely distrusting Aaron, Rick was convinced to bring the group to Alexandria to investigate.
