Dale was a resident of Wayward Pines.
As Theo Yedlin knocked on a door of a resident's house, Theo looked over at Dale, who smiled and nodded, then went back to painting his house, seemingly unware of the big explosion that just occurred.
After the rebels surrendered, the First Generation arrested anyone who they suspected to be in league with the rebels, and Dale was one of the residents brought in for questioning. He was later released alongside Rebecca Yedlin. He later watched the live video of the abbies attacking the fence.
Later, while he was spray-painting the leaves on a tree, he was present at the welcoming ceremony for Pamela Pilcher.
