Will We Find Out More About Abraham, Rosita & Eugene?


Last season, viewers of The Walking Dead were treated to several episodes that focused on learning the backstory of some of the show’s major characters.  However, there are still a lot of things that we don’t know and some characters that are complete mysteries

Recently, The Hollywood Reporter sat down with The Walking Dead’s executive producer Greg Nicotero to talk about some of the upcoming episodes.  Here is what he told them:

"“As we get into episodes four, five and six, in true Walking Dead tradition, we’re going to step off and explore some other characters we may not have explored as in-depth in previous episodes. We’re going to get an opportunity to get into some other characters’ backstories. We did it very successfully with Michonne  last year, and we can expect to learn a lot more about Abraham Ford, Rosita Espinosa, and Eugene Porter, and their backstory and how they met and things like that.”"

I can’t wait to find out more about those three individuals.  The relationship between Abraham and Rosita is one that we could use to learn a lot more about.  We know a bit about Abraham’s formal training, but otherwise he’s a complete mystery.  Meanwhile, Rosita is an absolute mystery.  It would still be interesting to find out what brought these two together and why they’re so willing to risk everything for Eugene.

Speaking of Eugene, I’m not sure what to think of him.  We’ve heard what he’s told Abraham and the group, but there is something about Eugene that is very untrustworthy and always awkward.   While it’s almost a given that we’re going to find out a lot more about him if the group ever gets to Washington, it’s hard to trust and understand him until we know a least a little more about the mulleted Mensa member.

Since the next couple episodes are bound to focus more on Beth’s adventures at the hospital, we will have to wait a bit before we can learn the stories of these three compelling characters.  But if we know The Walking Dead, they will make it worth the wait.
