In a new clip from The Walking Dead “Hostiles and Calamities” we see Eugene’s arrival at the Sanctuary, and Negan reintroduces him to Lucille.
If there is one thing that will keep Eugene safe after being imprisoned by the Saviors, it’s that he really does have a brain under that big hair game. And we’re not talking about a Doc Brown, Back to the Future, making weapons out of pinball machine parts-type way. The guy knows how to make bullets, and that’s why Negan gives him an up close and personal look at Lucille, who took one of those bespoke bullets in her pretty face.
In the newest clip from The Walking Dead on AMC, Eugene arrives at the Sanctuary with a jar of pickles, and Negan wants to know whether or not he really is a “smarty pants.” After a long pause and a lot of flinching, Eugene admits that he “is indeed a smarty pants” and he taught himself how to make bullets using a machine shop he located. In typical Eugene fashion, he rambles on about how he likes to read and he picks things up quickly.
It’s Eugene’s brilliant mind that will keep him safe at the Sanctuary. You can bet that Negan wouldn’t be so interested in the Mulleted One if he already had someone who could make bullets in his employ. That makes Eugene very special, and very important. You can have the biggest arsenal in the world but if you don’t have bullets the guns are worthless.

Negan appreciates skilled workers. The Sanctuary’s doctor, for example, will be safe so long as he doesn’t do anything stupid. He follows the rules and patches up the people who need to be patched up. No one else can be the doctor, so the doctor will always be safe.
