    Abraham Ford - [ The Walking Dead Character Details & History ]

    [ The Walking Dead Character Profiles: Abraham Ford ]



    The macho musclehead, misogynistic, loudmouthed, pottymouthed full-blooded American with a ginger stache and a heart of gold! This thread is going to be about the details/history of his character and the differences/similarities between his TV and comic-book counterparts. The profile consists of direct interpretation of the character, copied or paraphrased excerpts of TV show facts from Walking Dead wiki, images and gifs from various sites through google, and memory of character arcs and actions in the comic or TV show. -Sources listed below-

    [ Hometown Prior-Apocalypse ]
    - Abraham Ford: Houston, Texas


    [ Life Before And After Apocalypse ] : Not much is known about Abraham's life prior to the ZA aside from the fact that he was a sergeant in the U.S army and was stationed in Houston Texas. During the earlier days of the apocalypse Abraham held up in a grocery store with his wife Ellen, and two children (daughter and son- A.J and Becca) and other friends/neighbors. After returning from a scavenger run, he discovered that his wife and daughter had been raped while they held down his son and made him watch. Abraham flew into a rage and murdered everyone who participated (as seen in a flashback) with a can and his bare hands. Afraid at what Abraham had become they left the store when Abraham went to sleep and barely made it far as Abraham discovered their remains not too far ahead. Before taking his own life, a man, Eugene Porter, was seen screaming in the distance which disrupts his suicide attempt completely after Eugene explains that he has a mission. He begins his journey from there, eventually running to Rosita Espinosa and subsequently Glenn Rhee and Tara Chambler.

    Abraham Ford [ Season 4 ]


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are first seen in "Inmates" arriving just as Glenn Rhee collapses and Tara Chambler fights off a walker. They get out of their military vehicle (posing iconically in their comicbook intro issue). Tara greets them with "I hope you enjoyed the show assholes" and Abraham responds "You got a damn mouth on you. What else you got?"


    In "Claimed" Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are first seen driving the truck to DC. They stop at a road to kill walkers. Abraham finds enjoyment in killing them and Tara notes that she's never seen it before. Later their trip is interrupted when Glenn regains consciousness and tells Abraham to stop the truck. Glenn and Tara pack up and leave to go look for Maggie but Abe stops them and tries to convince them to keep the direction by telling them that Eugene knows what caused the outbreak. Glenn politely declines and Tara follows after but Abraham is persistent telling Glenn that it's not worth it (Rosita and Eugene stand back and watch)and that Maggie is probably already dead and then a fight erupts between the two. Rosita and Tara attempts to break up the fight while Eugene stands isolated next to the truck.


    Walkers appear from the corn and Eugene attempts to shoot them but he misses horribly and hits the truck's gas tank (presumably on purpose to stall the trip). The rest of the gang kills the walkers in the field and Abraham finds that the truck's gas tank is destroyed and beyond repair. He wonders how Eugene managed to do it and Eugene exclaims that his lack of firearm experience was to blame. Glenn (and Tara) stick around to dispatch the zombies and Glenn grabs Maggie's picture from Rosita but begins to part ways with the trio. Rosita follows after them stating that there's nothing else to do and Eugene exclaims that they should follow Glenn and Tara at least until they found another vehicle before venturing into the unknown and remarks that he's smarter than Abraham and Abraham listens without a fight.


    In "Alone" Glenn is seen finding a sign telling him to go to Terminus, it can be assumed that Abraham, Rosita, Eugene, and Tara are there and see it as well.


    In "Us" the group is seen walking the tracks to Terminus. Eugene talks about videogames and the possibility that the dinosaur extinction event was probably the same as their current situation. Later that night Abraham and Tara watch over and everyone sleeping and Abraham realizes his theory about Tara being in love with Glenn was wrong because he found her checking out Rosita's breast when they ate dinner earlier (simply putting two and two together). The next day, after Glenn finds another sign from Maggie, he happily runs off much to Abraham, Rosita, Eugene, and Tara's amazement.

    Later, Abraham suggests that the group rest at a nearby water tower because they'd be too tired to survive if they kept at it. Glenn disagrees with this plan as he's anxious to find Maggie. Abraham is vehement in his suggestion but Glenn sways his decision (after a close call walker attack where Tara is knocked over by Abraham protecting Eugene) by giving up his riot gear to Eugene for extra protection. Glenn's insensitivity to Tara's injury prompts Rosita to stand up for her, she calls him an ass, because she knows exactly why Tara is doing what she's doing. Continuing to Terminus the group reaches a tunnel and Abraham officially cuts all ties with Glenn and Tara stating that the tunnel is a death trap. Glenn and Tara refuse to turn back but peacefully part ways with the trio with hugs, handshakes, and apologies. Eugene takes the opportunity to call Tara hot to which she politely rejects. The trio manage to find a car and Abraham decides to rest while Rosita drives and Eugene gives directions.


    Eugene bickers back and forth with Rosita about the directions and they end up on the other side of the tunnel. Rosita confronts him about his deception and Eugene claims that he doesn't want to leave Tara and Glenn behind. Eugene's seat then reclines and hits Abraham in the face and he angrily confronts and blames Rosita for not staying the course, meanwhile Eugene notices Maggie, Sasha, and Bob approaching the car. The group then enters the cave and saves Glenn and Tara from a small horde of walkers. Abraham quickly explains the situation to Bob and Sasha and they all agree to go to DC but only after they check out Terminus. The group then travels to the end of the line and greets Mary inside Terminus.


    In "A" the trio is seen locked in boxcar "A", Abraham particularly angry about the circumstances which are explained in "No Sanctuary" and wonders what Rick means about how the Terminan's will feel stupid.

    Abraham Ford [ Season 5 ]


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    In "No Sanctuary" Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are trapped in Boxcar A and are first seen making makeshift weapons. Abraham using wood to make a weapon out of his gloves, Rosita using parts of her belt, and Eugene attempting to open the boxcar door. After the attempt to escape fails they are left trapped in the boxcar. During their time in the boxcar Sasha and Michonne interrogate Eugene about the "cure" to which Eugene tells them that they "fight fire with fire" implying they use another virus to take down the current virus; Rosita and Abraham defend him without question. Later on Abraham tells Eugene to stay close to him when Rick releases them from the boxcar. They fight their way out of Terminus, with Abraham jumping the fence last. After accompanying Rick's group after meeting Carol and Tyreese, Abraham and Rosita discuss telling Rick about Eugene knowing how to stop the outbreak and their voyage to Washington D.C., but Abraham settles on telling Rick at a later time.


    In "Strangers" Abraham continues to wait to tell Rick and co about the cure. He eventually slyly works Rick about his (Rosita and Eugene) plans to go to DC and stop the virus. Rick initially plays it off. Later that night during a feast, Abraham stands and delivers a moving speech about creating a new world (for Judith) and manages to convince everyone that it's the right thing to do. Rosita and Eugene are seen throughout the episode talking to other people or helping out moving supplies.


    In "Four Walls and a Roof" Sasha confronts Father Gabriel about his possible involvement with Bob's disappearance. Rosita is seen attempting to stop Sasha after she pulls a knife but Abraham holds her back. Father Gabriel to break down and reveal his "sins", Eugene is visibly moved by it and is teary eyed. After finding Bob outside, Rick meets with the group to discuss what to do next, his choice being to hunt down Gareth's group. Abraham, however, insists they leave, as it is too dangerous for them to keep Eugene in such a hostile zone. Abraham initially has to angrily force Eugene to leave as he doesn't want to. Rick and Abraham begin arguing heatedly, and (except for Glenn's intervention) nearly come to blows until Glenn finally gets Abraham to agree to stay for one more half of a day, in exchange for Glenn's guarantee that he, Maggie, and Tara will accompany them to Washington, D.C.


    Under the cover of night, Abraham leaves the church with Rick, Michonne, Sasha, Glenn, Maggie, and Tara. As they disappear into the woods, the Hunters appear, arriving at the church from a different route, and break in. Rosita (with weapon) and Eugene stay behind to defend the others. Abraham takes part in the ambush and killing of the hunters. The next morning, Abraham gives Rick a map depicting the route they would taking to Washington. The group has decided to split up, with Abraham's group, along with Glenn, Maggie and Tara leaving for Washington, and the rest of the group promising to follow after Daryl and Carol return. Rick then opens the map to find the message, "Sorry for being an asshole earlier Come to Washington. The new world's gonna need RICK GRIMES".


    In "Self-Help" Abraham, Rosita, Eugene, Tara, Glenn, and Maggie are in the church bus en route to DC. Eugene is seen pondering what Father Gabriel said. Tara makes a joke that Eugene's mullet is the source of his power. Maggie and Glenn ask Eugene several questions where he explains a number of factors contribute. He also tells Glenn he likes his own hair and his old boss T. Brooks Ellis loved his hair. In the front of the bus, Rosita flirts and plays with Abraham's hair, which she makes fun of. Abraham plays along and says that she can shave him completely. Eventually the bus breaks down and crashes. Everyone emerges with minimal injuries (Abraham's cut on his hand reopened and fight off the walkers. Eugene is visibly scared and holds his knife close. He eventually helps Tara by assisting with killing a walker.


    After killing all the walkers the group discusses where to go next, Eugene suggests going back to the church which Abraham angrily rejects stating that "we don't go back." The group continues on foot and take shelter in a bookstore where they fortify it and make it a home for the night to the sound of Abraham's humming. Rosita patches up Abraham's hand and he decides to take first watch. Abraham says it’s kind of reached the point where everyone alive is strong now. Glenn checks on Abraham who says he wants to say it’s never easy to kill someone, but it’s not the truth, that it’s the easiest thing in the world now. Glenn tells Abraham that he should turn in and get some rest, but Abraham says he really needs some ass first. After Abraham leaves, Glenn says, “I didn't need to know that, but cool.”


    During Abraham and Rosita's sex, Rosita notices Eugene staring at them (again) from the self-help section. Abraham laughs it off and says he's harmless. Tara comes up behind Eugene, and Eugene admits to watching Abraham and Rosita. Eugene says he enjoys the female form, and he considers it to be a victimless crime which provides a distraction. Tara says that she was looking for Eugene to thank him for saving her life back at the bus. Eugene reveals that he sabotaged the bus to make it crash. Eugene says he put crushed glass in the fuel line back at the church and that the vehicle should have failed before it even got to the road. When Tara asks why he did that, Eugene says that he couldn't survive on his own. Eugene says that if he couldn't save the world that there is no way they would keep him around. Tara says they would because they're friends. Tara says that Eugene needs to keep secret what he did and not to do it again. Eugene goes, at Tara's urging and she takes a swift look at Rosita and Abe before she goes as well.


    The next day Rosita is wrapping up Abraham’s hand in bandages. Rosita says she thinks that they should stay here today, but Abraham says they need to keep moving. Abraham says every minute they waste in getting Eugene to Washington people are dying. Maggie enters and says that this store was hardly touched and that they could spend one more day searching for supplies. Rosita publicly backs Abraham and says they will sweep as they go.


    Abraham says they have a vehicle, and he looks out the window at a fire truck. He adds that the vehicle has 500 gallons of water on it. At first the fire truck won’t crank, but Abraham eventually gets it started. However, after they pull out, the fire truck chokes down. As Abraham starts to work on the fire truck, a tire goes rolling by them. Then, a decent sized group of walkers come out of a building, released after the fire truck moved forward and allowed the building's door to open. Abraham and the rest are overrun, but Eugene turns the fire hose on the walkers and takes them out. Abraham says he’s been to eight county fairs and one goat rodeo and he’s never seen anything like that. Glenn says there’s a Goodwill where there might be some supplies. But Abraham is against waiting, he climbs on the roof of the fire truck to clean out the intake for the engine. Abraham starts laughing when he sees written on the ground, “Sick inside let them die.”

    Abraham and his group are now a ways down the road in the fire truck. Evidently, Abraham got the truck running, but it’s stopped again. Eugene is reading the H.G. Well’s book "The Shape Of Things To Come" on the back of the fire truck. Maggie tells Eugene that she knows why he has the haircut. Eugene says that it’s because he likes it, but Maggie goes into a story about how it lets everyone know he’s not like everyone else. Maggie says a lot of people in his position would have given up. Glenn says he smells something. The others suddenly smell it too.


    The group walks down the road where they spy a horde of walkers, and large farms equally infested at both sides. Glenn tells everyone they have to turn around and head back. Abraham says that he’s not giving up the ship, that they can get through the herd and that they're not going around or turning back. Rosita tells Abraham no and that the others are right only for him to grab Eugene and start walking back to the fire truck. Everyone else tries to stop Abraham, but then Eugene starts screaming, "I’m not a scientist". Eugene says he lied, that he’s not a scientist, and that he doesn't know how to stop the walkers. Everyone is standing around staring at him, and Rosita insists that he is a scientist. Eugene says that he just knows things and is a good liar, and knows that he’s smarter than most people. He says that he just wanted to get to DC because he believes that the locale holds the strongest possibility for survival. He just wanted to trick some people into taking him there. Rosita tearfully says that people died trying to get him to DC. Eugene says that as the reality of getting to DC came closer, he tried to slow their path. He also says he lied about T. Brooks Ellis liking his hair, as he never met him. Abraham then gets up and punches Eugene multiple times,forcing him into the fire truck. Abraham gives one more punch and slams Eugene's head into the windshield wiper and knocks him out. As Abraham goes at Eugene again, Rosita steps in front of him and puts her hand on her gun. Maggie roles Eugene over and she, along with Glenn and Rosita, try to rouse him. Abraham walks away and falls to his knees on the roadway with tears in his eyes.

    In "Crossed" Abraham spends most of the episode on his knees; unresponsive and staring into the distance. A frustrated Rosita tries to give him water, but he smacks the bottle out of her hand and looms over her menacingly. Maggie draws her pistol on him, threatening him to sit back down. He looks at her sadly, and then complies - back on his knees again. He continues on in this catatonic state, even when the others head off to scavenge and Maggie bitterly scolds him to "get over himself." Eventually, Maggie gently offers him her bottle of water, and asks if he really wanted her to shoot him. He finally opens up: "I thought I did... but I didn't." At this point Eugene finally regains consciousness, and as Maggie runs over to help him, Abraham picks up the water bottle.

    In "Coda" Abraham, Rosita, Eugene, Glenn, Maggie, and Tara arrive just in time to stop the walkers from exiting the church as Abraham drives the firetruck in front of the doors. After Michonne explains the situation about Beth to Maggie the group heads over to Grady Memorial Hospital arriving too late however and watched shocked and saddened by Maggie's reaction to a dead Beth.

    In "Them" Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are first seen travelling with the others. Abraham is drinking alcohol that he found during scavenging. At one point Tara says that alcohol will only make his dehydration, hunger, and current situation worse. Rosita says that Abraham knows this and doesn't care, Eugene interjects stating that Abraham is a grown man and that their situation can't possibly get any worse. Rosita states that it can. Later, Abraham is seen in formation with Rick, Michonne, Glenn, Maggie, and Sasha planning to push walkers down a hill. Sasha breaks formation and the group is forced to use more energy and kill the walkers with weapons; Abraham states that the plan was ruined (or "dicked"). During the fight, Sasha slashes Abraham with her knife which he shrugs off. After clearing the walkers and moving ahead Abraham offers Sasha some of his alcohol which she rejects stating it will only make things worse. Abraham disagrees saying that the way she's going now will make things worse (referring to her irrational actions and anger). He then attempts to comfort her saying that she's with friends. Sasha once again rejects the comfort stating that they are not friends to which once again shrugs off.

    Down the road the group finds water left for them "from a friend". The group are wary about taking the water, but Eugene goes for it saying "quality assurance". Abraham knocks the water out of his hand, suggesting that he cares for Eugene and does not want to see him get hurt. It starts to rain and Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are very happy with it. Rosita lays on the ground with Tara, Eugene drinks it as well as Abraham. A storm approaches and the group takes shelter in a nearby barn. Lastly, Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are seen holding the barn door closed with the others against the horde outside in the storm (then sleeping).

    In "The Distance" Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are first seen cleaning their weapons and sitting in the barn. After Aaron is brought in by Maggie and Sasha, Abraham and Rosita perk up their defenses. Eugene keeps to himself in the background. After Aaron mentions his vehicles Rick asks Rosita and Abraham to go check out the situation with Glenn, Michonne, and Maggie. Rosita and Abraham agree without question. Eugene is sent to look out for any other enemies with the others.

    After a few walkers approach Abraham states that he will take them out and Rosita says that "WE we will take them out" Rosita uses a stick to take out a walker and saves Abraham from one. Abraham is grateful for her help but Rosita ignores it. When they search the RV, Abraham finds some food the group used to eat and Rosita reminicess on the past with him. Abraham notices that Rosita is less close with him and he asks her if she thought that he would hurt her back in Atlanta. Rosita states that that isn't him. Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene rides the RV on both legs of the journey to Alexandria, Rosita sitting in the passenger seat with a map, Abraham driving, and Eugene hanging back with Tara.


    When Rosita spots DC in the distance she calls to Abraham and remember their former goal. They share a moment and Rosita tells him to keep his eyes on the road. Meanwhile Eugene plays cards with Tara who boasts about his knowledge of the game. Abraham sees that the battery is nearly dead but is very hopeful in the fact that they made it to DC and states that the RV will survive the rest of the trip. It doesn't and Abraham is annoyed by it. Glenn mentions that they need a battery and he immediately finds one which surprises Abraham. Glenn smiles knowingly but does not tell him how he knew. Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are last seen approaching the gates of Alexandria, cautions up.

    In "Remember" Abraham, Rosita, and Eugene are seen throughout the episode. It could be presumed that they were attempting to adjust to their new surroundings, exploring it, and are given interviews.

    In "Forget" Eugene does not appear but he's probably doing his job around Alexandria. However, Abraham and Rosita are first seen at Deanna's welcoming party. Abraham and Rosita are both out of their element and do not like it very much but Abraham perks up when Rosita tells him they have a beer. Later Abraham is seen talking to Michonne, Abraham buzzed states that he's strangely okay and happy with how his life has been so far after the world has ended. He then talks to Michonne about trying to leave the war of the outside behind but it being hard because it's always there. He then tests her to see if she really has accepted Alexandria to which she is not sure.

    In "Spend" Abraham is first seen is now working as a part of Tobin's construction team as they are starting the process of expanding the wall. While gathering materials from the mall construction site they are attacked by numerous walkers. Abraham zones out, perhaps PTSD or wartime adrenaline but quickly snaps back to reality. During the gunfire, the lookout Francine is knocked from her perch. Tobin shows a need to leave her behind, but Abraham rushes in and manages to save her life. Abraham happily kills several walkers and manages to bring Francine to safety. At some point Abraham gives the construction workers a pep talk; perhaps about how to deal with walkers. Tobin recommends to Deanna that she name Abraham the new head of construction, as he sees him as a more fit leader than himself.

    In "Try" Abraham is mentioned by Rosita to Michonne that he took watch in the tower after Sasha went into the woods alone.

    In "Conquer" Abraham is first seen entering the room where Rick is recovering from his wounds. Carol, Michonne, Glenn, Rick, and Abraham talk about what happened before Rick dismisses all of them state he wants to go back to sleep. Later, while Tara rests in her bed with Eugene and Rosita sitting close by. Abraham enters the room but turns around when he spots Eugene. Rosita stops him, saying that Eugene is asleep. Abraham sits down at Tara's bedside, but Rosita deliberately drops some pans, waking Eugene up. "Good afternoon," he greets, deadpan. He points out that Tara had saved him and also says that Abraham brought them here, before apologizing to Abraham. After a few seconds of thought, Abraham responds that he is also sorry. Eugene thinks the apology is unnecessary, but Abraham reminds him that he had almost killed him. "There is that", Eugene replies. Abraham is present during the town meeting, Abraham explains to the participants of the meeting that there is a "vast ocean of shit out there" and that Rick knows everything about it, commenting that the people of Alexandria do not know what he does.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Rosita Espinosa ]
    Relationship Introduced: E(10)S(4) "Inmates"
    Current Relationship Status: Dating


    Brief History - Abraham met Rosita shortly after meeting Eugene and recruited her on his and Eugene's mission to go to DC because he believed in her skills and abilities, something others have seldom done for her. They eventually start a romantic relationship, even though it is a slightly rocky. They argue on different occasions with clashing plans and decisions as shown in "Claimed" when she walks off without talking to him about it and in "Us" when Rosita fails in keeping the course to DC. The two do believe in Eugene, and the cure for DC for different reasons and Rosita serves as someone to calm Abraham down but she loses control of him many times, with Glenn and with Rick.


    In S5's "Self-Help" Rosita was seen flirting with Abraham on the bus to Washington D.C. indicating that she is genuinely attracted to and in love with Abraham. This is confirmed by sex with him. The two clash once again, with differing opinions on how to go about DC but she ultimately does not interrupt. When a horde blocks their way, Abraham loses it and begins to manhandle Eugene, which Rosita, Tara, Maggie and Glenn do not approve of. Eugene reveals his lie which saddens Rosita, however Rosita defended Eugene anyway grasping her gun when Abraham was about to kill Eugene. This marked a significant change in their relationship.


    Rosita becomes infuriated with Abraham's catatonic state, perhaps feeling inadequate after all they've been through. She screams at him to look at her, and he rises in a threatening way which scares Rosita. However Maggie intervenes and Rosita goes off with Glenn and Tara. Their relationship is strained after this event. Rosita keeps her distance from Abraham, hanging closely with Glenn, Eugene, Tara, and Maggie. In "The Distance" Abraham and Rosita are paired together to go check on Aaron's alibi. During this time, Abraham volunteers to take care of a small group of walkers. Rosita interjects and says "we will", Abraham fails to kill a walker and is saved by Rosita. He thanks her but she does not respond.


    In the RV, Abraham fawns over some canned goods. The two reminisce sometimes with their former group. Rosita remains distant which finally alerts Abraham who asks if she thought that he would hurt her, which she says "no" and that it's not him. Their relationship begins to slightly mend itself with their new found hope in Aaron and Alexandria. The two share a brief moment of happiness seeing that they've reached their goal after all, Washington D.C. even though it's not to cure the world.


    Their relationship is apparently completely mended and they spend a lot of their time together in Alexandria. They show up to Deanna's dinner party together, and will wary they are happy that there is booze involved. Abraham is made leader of construction, and Rosita becomes a medical assistant. After Tara is injured and her fate is ambiguous, Abraham brings her flowers, which Rosita thinks is sweet. Rosita asks him to stay, because Eugene is asleep, knowing that he feels awkward about almost killing him. Rosita purposely makes noise to awake Eugene which forces the boys to make amends which no doubt serves as a renewed life for them.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Eugene Porter ]
    Relationship Introduced: E(10)S(4) "Inmates"
    Current Relationship Status: Close friends


    Brief History - Abraham and Eugene meet early in the apocalypse when Abraham saves Eugene from a few pursuing walkers. Eugene informs him of his mission and Abraham then acts as an escort to Washington, DC for Eugene. It is seen that Eugene feels a superiority complex over Abraham, because he considers himself to be smarter than Abraham. However, Abraham does not appear to be that angry over the disabling of their vehicle, despite it being caused by Eugene's poor riflemanship from his failed attempt to kill some walkers. When Eugene reveals that he is not a scientist and that he does not know how to cure the disease, Abraham is enraged and assaults him, knocking him unconscious. They have hardly interacted since but Abraham was seen knocking a bottle of water from his hand left by an unknown stranger, which Rick believed could be poisoned, showing that he at least somewhat resolved his anger towards him.


    The two then apologize in "Conquer", and they both seem to return to being friends.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Tara Chambler ]
    Relationship Introduced: E(10)S(4) "Inmates"
    Current Relationship Status: Close Friends


    Brief History - Tara and Abraham had an initial rocky start, but quickly became friends. Tara admired his optimism when killing walkers and Abraham admired her skill on the battlefield. Tara was curious as to why Abraham is doing what he's doing, but tells him that she doesn't care as long as he doesn't lie to her. Tara's loyalty was to Glenn first and foremost, which Abraham initially took for her being in love with him, but then he found out that she was a lesbian which amused him. The two remain very close, even though their reactions were mostly her attempting to defuse tensions or just being in proximity. They've kept a decent stable relationship, before and after Eugene's lie. Tara, of course, distanced herself from him noticing how much of an ass he is. Her injury, concerned Abraham greatly, as well as Rosita, Eugene, Glenn, and Maggie. He is seen bringing her flowers in "Conquer", and Tara's unfortunate circumstance brings Eugene, Rosita, and Abraham closer again.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Glenn Rhee ]
    Relationship Introduced: E(10)S(4)
    Current Relationship Status: Close Friends


    Brief History - Abraham meets Glenn and Tara on the side of the road and based on Tara's decision, they go with him. Glenn is not on board with this decision and immediately requests to be let off. Abraham stops the car and confronts Glenn, telling him about the mission to DC which Glenn shrugs off, considering looking for Maggie much more important. After Abraham coldly tells him to move on and that Maggie is dead, Glenn feels insulted and punches him. The two then fight. However the fight is interrupted by the dead, which they dispatch quickly. However, Eugene destroys their only means of transportation which Eugene uses as an opportunity for diversion. Abraham follows Glenn and over time, they become good friends. Respecting each others skill and prowess. In order to recruit larger numbers to the march of DC, Abraham stays along on the road to Terminus.


    In S5 after escaping Terminus, Abraham slowly but surely begins to get annoyed by diversions which leads to an explosive fight with him and Rick. Glenn manages to defuse tensions by making a deal with hot-headed Abraham and due to Abraham's intense trust in him, allows it and deals with the Terminus hunters once and for all. The two then continue on the road to DC, sharing brotherly moments together. Glenn pledging his loyalty to Abraham, greatly pleasing Abraham. However, after another explosion Glenn breaks his loyalty to protect Eugene. Eugene reveals his lie and they are all saddened by the revelation, yet Glenn protects Eugene anyway.


    Their relationship is slightly less close after this, but it can be presumed that as things began to remedy in Abraham's relationship with other members of GREATM, so did things in his relationship with Glenn. Evidence of this is shown in "The Distance" where Abraham looks to Glenn as a leader and his interest in his ability to fix the RV on the road to DC.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Maggie Greene ]
    Relationship Introduced: E(15)S(4) "Us"
    Current Relationship Status: Friends

    Brief History - Abraham and Maggie first meet in "Us" after they cross paths on the way to Terminus. They save Glenn and Tara from certain doom and Abraham respects the group's decision to go to Terminus to gather more numbers. It can be presumed that due to his respect of Glenn, Maggie became family by proxy. They don't interact much after this but their relationship is assumed stable. However their relationship briefly went downhill when Abraham beat Eugene into unconsciousness after revealing that he lied, with Maggie pulling a gun on him for Rosita's sake and tells him to get over himself because he's not the only one who lost things. Maggie approaches Abraham later, more warmly, asking him if he wanted to die and offers him his bottle of water back. Abraham surprisingly responds and the two reconcile, both being happy that Eugene wakes up from his wounds.


    In Alexandria Maggie supports Tobin's vote for Abraham to replace him as leader of the construction crew confirming the two have a good relationship and respect for each other.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Rick Grimes ]
    Relationship Introduced: E(16)S(4) "A"
    Current Relationship Status: Friends


    Brief History - Upon first encounter, Rick was slightly suspicious of Abraham but after learning from Maggie that he and the others had saved her and Glenn, Rick accepts Abraham as a member of the group. Abraham followed his plan to attack the Terminus residents and later, once escaping, helped Rick above the fence. However, when Rick was keen to use the stored weapons to finish the remaining survivors off, Abraham disagreed, noting that they just got out. Later, whilst discussing with Rosita, Abraham said they would talk to Rick (likely about their mission to Washington).


    In "Strangers", it is shown that Rick and Abraham have formed a friendship and the two clearly respect each other as Abraham addressed Rick as 'Officer', although Abraham seemed a little unappreciated and noticed the group's decision to go with Rick; however, after Rick's returning to the church with food and their having a meal, Abraham proposed a toast, noting that the group were strong and skilled survivors. Once Abraham offered Rick and his group the chance to travel to Washington, Rick was grateful for his offer and agreed with him, saying "We're in." The two smiled and laughed.


    In "Four Walls and a Roof", Their relationship however becomes strained upon learning of the impending threat of Gareth and the Hunters, where Abraham insisted on leaving whereas Rick wanted to remain at the church and await for Daryl and Carol, Rick scolds him for his near abandoning them as he believes that Abraham owes them for saving his life, the two then have a heated discussion and nearly come close to a physical confrontation until Glenn manages to settle the atmosphere down. Despite this incident the two team together and manage to defeat Gareth and the hunters once entering the church and have settled their differences the next day, Abraham and Rick parted on good terms promising to each other that they would meet at D.C, and both have gained a newfound respect for each other after Abraham leaves a note on the map for Rick which says "Sorry I was an asshole. Come to Washington. The new world's gonna need Rick Grimes" and thus the burying of the hatchet between the two.


    During the last 8 episodes of season 5 there are subtle hints that Abraham and Rick's relationship has improved during their time on the road. In "Them" Rick arranges a plan for 2 groups of 3 to line up on each side of the road to lure a group of walkers approaching them towards either side of the road, then pushing them into a ravine. He brings Abraham to the front of his group, showing he believes Abraham is capable of carrying out the plan. Rick looks at Abraham as the walkers get closer to which Abraham nods back to convey he's ready. Abraham is also the first person Rick entrusts to go with Glenn, Maggie and Michonne to find Aaron's RV and car. In "Remember" Abraham is unsure about handing over his weapons at Alexandria and he looks at Rick to make sure it's the right move, who in return nods back and Abraham turns in all his weapons, showing he trusts Rick's judgement. In "Conquer" Abraham joins Glenn, Carol and Michonne in visiting Rick after he wakes up from his injuries. They discuss what they're going to do at Deanna's meeting about exiling Rick, showing that Abraham has become an integral part of the group and is now involved in the group's decision making process. Abraham then vouches for Rick during the meeting by delivering a speech where he tells the Alexandrians that they don't know what they're doing but Rick does, showing Abraham fully trusts and respects Rick as a person and a leader.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Michonne ]
    Relationship Introduced: E(16)S(4) "A"
    Current Relationship Status: Friends


    Brief History - At first, Michonne and Abraham's relationship was off to a rocky start. In "Strangers" the two argue when Abraham keeps trying to persuade rick to leave for Washington as Michonne demands they take some time to rest at the church and get some supplies before taking any further action. During the house party at Alexandria in "Forget" , Abraham casually interacts with Michonne on the porch, they both share a laugh when Michonne asks how much Abraham has had to drink, indicating they have developed more of a friendship.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Sasha Williams ]
    Relationship Introduced: E(15)S(4)
    Current Relationship Status: Unrequited Friendship


    Brief History - Sasha and Abraham aren't seen interacting much but Sasha is willing to go with Abraham on his mission to Washington D.C upon their first meeting, indicating she trusts him. However in "Them" the two appear to have a strained relationship. Abraham appears frustrated when Sasha ruins their plan to lure a group of walkers approaching them down a ravine, to which Abraham utters "The plan just got dicked" Later, Abraham tries to help Sasha cope with the loss of Bob and Tyreese by telling her "You're with friends" to which she responds "We're not friends". Abraham, inherently good in nature, looks after the tower while Sasha goes into the forest to kill walkers.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Notable relationships with deceased former survivors ]
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [ Ellen, Becca, and A.J Ford ]
    Relationship Introduced: Prior to E(10)S(4) "Inmates"
    Relationship Concluded: Prior to E(10)S(4) "Inmates"


    Brief History - Though little is known about Abraham's relationship with his wife, he obviously was greatly protective of her, being the main driving force keeping her alive in the apocalypse. During flashback sequences in "Self Help", he is shown to have killed a group of people, presumably to protect Ellen and their children. Despite reassurances from Abraham that everything would be alright, she along with his two children seemed deeply disturbed by his actions, hinting at some possible previous tensions. During the night, she attempts to leave him with her children, but are slaughtered by walkers. Abraham, discovering this, becomes deeply damaged, nearly killing himself before Eugene wanders into his proximity. This shows that Abraham had become completely dependent on his family, including Ellen, to keep his drive for living going. Without them, he quickly crumbled into depression until a new purpose could find its way to him in the form of Eugene and his lies about Washington.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Character Conclusion [Opinion Piece]
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As far as Abraham goes I've always been pretty indifferent about his character in both mediums. He's entertaining to watch and Michael Cudlitz plays him very well but I can't really find much to really enjoy about his character (S4-S5A thoughts). However, I've begun to enjoy his characters noble traits and humorous one liners (S5B) It's nowhere but up for this character and I'm sure he'll go out in blaze of mother dicking glory.

    Rosita is fine. Nothing wrong with her character yet.

    Abraham and Eugene are horrible adaptions. I would say Eugene is the worst adaption the TV show has done behind Andrea and Tyreese. The writers turned the calm and collected Eugene, who was obviously very smart, into a bloody quirky nerd stereotype. This isn't 'The Big Bang Theory' and characters like his should not exist, no hope for him to believably channel the awesomeness of comic Euge in his later storylines and kick ass. Abraham is fucking terrible too. All of his most prominent comic moments that have happened so far have happened too late and he lacks the badass factor comic Abe did. Plus I don't think the actor fits the part that well, he just doesn't scream comic Abe when he delivers his lines. I really don't have any hope for the Abraham character going forward and that is a shame because he is one of Kirkman's best creations.

    @Gravelord - I agree. Abraham was my favorite comic character. I'm so disappointed at the way he turned out on screen. When I look at Michael Cudlitz, I just recall T-Bag wanting to bone him on Prison Break.

    @Kwame's Labyrinth - thanks for the write, good stuff as always.

    Abraham never really stood out to me in either mediums so I sorta agree with you on those fronts. Glad you're cool with Rosita and I can understand your frustration with Eugene but I assume Kirkman wanted that translation. For him to be more comedic to alleviate some of the seriousness of the show. Let's be honest, the whole "cure" storyline was a joke in both mediums. Ridiculous for anyone to believe Eugene without question. Sure...Abraham but everyone else? I can see desperation as a factor but still.

    @spectre, Now that you mention this, I do remember him on Prison Break.

    @Kwame's Labyrinth, very informative. TX

    Their character profile is currently up-to-date.

    I may add their notable relationships or I might even split the profile up. Not sure yet, lol.

    Did some polishing and added/updated notable relationships. I am going to make a separate thread of both Rosita and Eugene.

    Am I the only one who thinks his comic character is a complete ass for what he did to Rosita and how he actually approached it? How is Abe a favorite from the comics?
    Spoiler Spoiler:


    What am I missing here?

    You're not the only one. It's the last dickish thing his character does. I don't see it changing in the show.
