Eugene was 100% correct to join the Saviors on The Walking Dead. They don’t call him Dr. Smarty Pants for nothing! It was a win in every sense of the word.

There comes a time in every young man’s life when he has to make a choice, is he going to eat juicy filet mignon or Daryl’s roadkill for dinner? Some guys are all about making it on their own, others don’t bite the hand that feeds. Clock in, clock out, it’s just work. Now you can’t quite get steak and lobster over at Sanctuary but Eugene’s personal favorite pickles? For the taking. No questions asked. You do your job and we’ll do ours. The choice between being self-employed and hoping for the best and getting a full time big-league 9-5 corporate position…. With benefits.

Sure, you might occasionally see an unnecessary scalding hot iron maiming in play, but hey! That’s the job. It’s not all candy and peaches. There’s going to be times you don’t agree with upper management but they pay the big bucks at the end of the month. It’s the Saviors keeping Eugene secure, well fed, and even entertained both by beautiful lady friends and casual gaming. You even get a full blown medical plan, insurance if you will, by the best Doctor taking half can buy!

Eugene’s Big League Full Time Position

Would you give all that up? Huh. Well, would you? Here you are in the big leagues folks. CNN, FOX, ABC, in a major Managerial position. Sanctuary has prestige. Just hearing the words Savior or ‘I am Negan’ brings about instant recognition the way in past times you’d say you’re a doctor or lawyer.

Let’s go over the facts, one last time, of what you’re getting for giving up the ‘utopia’ of Alexandria. Employees and residents alike respect you and what you bring to the community. You have room and board, safety by a neighborhood watch army, great food, entertainment… Even the company of beautiful women who praise you rather than emasculate you as former ally Rosita would.

It seems Eugene Porter more than made the right choice. He adapted to the winning side, the Savior side. If it was you in the same spot in modern times, you’d probably call your detractors envious and jealous. Would you not? Eugene’s movin’ on up in the world, to the east side, to a deluxe apartment in the sky.

Forget Easy Street, this theme song should be playing at Eugene’s place 24/7:
