Katie Bowman (Sarah Wayne Callies) lived an idyllic life before the Arrival. Katie was a beloved wife with three children, and she owned a bar called the Yonk which was a very popular spot in their community.
After the Arrival, Katie’s life took a sharp turn for the worse. With her son missing in Santa Monica, Katie took matters into her own hands, working with Broussard and the Resistance group to subvert the occupation. Katie and the APIS team obtained information as to the whereabouts of a special VIP. They intercepted it and captured it, before being surrounded and narrowly escaping.
