Guns were soon drawn between the two groups, which resulted in the death of the O'Driscolls. The Van der Linde gang members decided to take her back to their camp, and despite their wanted status, she decided to stay with them.

Clemens Point Chapter

Sadie's next contact with Arthur is when he catches her in an argument with Pearson, due to her not wanting to cut vegetables all day. After she begs to have something else to do, he agrees to take her to town to run a few errands. After shopping at the store in Rhodes, the two are ambushed by Lemoyne Raiders. After fending them off, they head back to the camp.

Saint Denis Chapter

Before the O'Driscoll assault on Shady Belle, Sadie asks Arthur to talk to her about Kieran's disappearance. Almost immediately after she voices these concerns, the enemy gang assaults the camp. Despite Arthur telling her to get inside with the rest of the gang, she refuses and slays many O'Driscolls with the help of Arthur.

Guarma Chapter

After the disappearance of the majority of the gang members, Sadie organizes the women and the non-fighting members to go to the abandoned town of Lakay, because she knows Shady Belle will be searched. After the return of the fighting members, she helps fight in the Pinkerton assault of Lakay, as well as pays Arturo Bullard to fly above the Sisika Penitentiary. When Arthur and Bullard are flying back, she is attacked by O'Driscolls, in a fight that costs Bullard his life.

Beaver Hollow Chapter

Along with Arthur, Sadie storms the Sisika Penitentiary, an operation which succeeds in rescuing John Marston.

Much later near the end of Chapter 6, Sadie will ask Arthur for assistance in ending the O'Driscolls and to avenge the death of her late husband. If Arthur chooses to help Sadie he will tell her that she has his full trust and when he dies to look after John Marston and his family for him to which she agreed. Once at the hideout she will request if Arthur finds a fat bearded one to let her kill him as that is the one who killed her husband. After killing what remains of the O'Driscolls with Arthur, Sadie brutally murders Tom O'Driscoll, the new leader of the gang and the one who killed her husband. After, Sadie thanks Arthur and call him the second best man she knows, the first being her husband.

Later, Abigail is captured by Andrew Milton and Sadie goes with Arthur to save her. However, Sadie gets captured by Milton and Arthur is forced to confront Milton himself. Milton sneaks up behind Arthur and holds him at gunpoint. After Abigail shoots and kills Milton, the three escape. But Arthur stops and tells both of them to go to Jack and Tilly. After exchanging one last sorrowing goodbye, Sadie takes Abigail as Arthur goes to confront the gang.

Beecher's Hope Chapter

Several years after John's escape from the gang and Arthur's death, Sadie sends a letter to Pronghorn Ranch asking for John to meet her in Valentine. As John walks in the saloon, Sadie is seen bickering with other patrons. After intervening, Sadie asks John to join her with capturing bounties. After capturing a couple bounties, Sadie goes to John's ranch to announce she found one of Micah's goons, Cleet.

John, Sadie and Charles, head to Strawberry where Cleet was last seen. The trio finds Cleet, chase, beat, and interrogate him, going as far as putting him in the gallows to reveal Micah. After threatening his life, Cleet breaks and tells the gang Micah's in Mount Hagen. John can choose either to spare his life or hang him, where if he spares him, Sadie will get frustrated and shoot and kill Cleet regardless.

John and Sadie, along with Charles, head to the mountain to kill Micah. As they travel up the mountain, they confront the vanguard of Micah's gang. Charles is wounded and stays behind, as John and Sadie push on. Fighting off another group, a gang member stabs Sadie in the stomach. Still alive, Sadie asks John to go on without her. Alone, John and Micah engage in a shootout at the top of the mountain. With neither man giving an inch, Sadie, clutching her wound, appears and breaks the deadlock, however, Dutch reveals himself and Micah gets the upper hand and takes Sadie hostage. After exchanging words, Dutch suddenly shoots Micah in the chest to Micah's surprise, John then fatally shoots Micah repeatedly, avenging Arthur. Dutch leaves without saying a word and John returns from Micah's cabin with a large sackful of loot and money. Supporting each other, still alive, Sadie and John leave the camp and Micah's body behind.

Sadie was present when John and Abigail were married. Afterward, she danced with her friends, still clutching her wound. Sometime after the wedding she departs, most likely to go to South America as she once told John she wished to love there.
