    Rosita Espinosa - [ The Walking Dead Character Profile & History ]

    [ The Walking Dead Character Profiles: Rosita Espinosa ]

    The gorgeous, resourceful, eye-candy, Rosita. There's not much to say about her; literally. This thread is going to be about the details/history of her character and the differences/similarities between her 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-

    [ Life Before And After Apocalypse ] :
    Nothing is known about Rosita's life before or as the outbreak began, except that she has a sibling and a six-year-old nephew. It is possible that she came from Dallas. During the earlier stages of the ZA Rosita was with a group of people in Dallas, Texas before she met Abraham and Eugene. Abraham showed an interest in her and saw her value and worth by asking her for help which she greatly admired. She joined his mission from there and eventually ran into fellow survivors Glenn Rhee and Tara Chambler.
    Rosita Espinosa [ 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.
    Rosita Espinosa [ 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 (him)self." 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.

    Rosita is first seen offering Abraham water, which he hits away. She shouts at him and he stands up, looking threatening. Maggie makes him back away from Rosita. Later on her, Glenn and Tara trek to a river to refill their water supplies. They come across a few walkers trapped under a pole where Tara makes a joke about them not needing to get up as there is nothing for them in DC. Rosita does not approve of the joke. At the river the water is full of mud and dirt, but Rosita knows how to make a water filter because Eugene showed her how. While filtering water, Rosita talks to them about when she first met Abraham. When they discover fish in the water, they head back to the walkers and kill them to take their clothes and make a net. Rosita and Glenn use the net to catch a fish, which Rosita knows how to clean. Glenn tells her that's a useful skill for wherever they end up, telling her that whatever happens with Eugene and Abraham, she's welcome to be a part of their group. They then head back to the fire truck.

    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 reminisces 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.

    In "Try" Abraham is mentioned by Rosita to Michonne that he took watch in the tower after Sasha went into the woods alone (she also mentions that Tara is in stable condition). Rosita and Michonne venture into the woods in search of Sasha. Rosita and Michonne talk about adjusting to inside the walls and outside. Michonne feels as though she's just "asleep" but Rosita mentions that she didn't bring her sword so maybe that isn't so. Rosita and Michonne follow a trail of dead walkers to Sasha who is taking out a large cluster of them. Sasha is irritated but does not stop killing them. Initially hesitant, Rosita joins the killing spree implying that she too found some comfort in being on the outside of the walls killing walkers. Rosita is saddened by Sasha's breakdown.

    In "Conquer" Rosita spends her time watching over Tara. Later while Tara rests in her bed 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. Rosita remains by Tara's side for the rest of the night, after she awakens Rosita is incredibly happy to see her friend pulled through.
    Rosita Espinosa [ Comic-book/TV similarities and differences ]

    [ Similarities ]
    - Both characters were in a relationship with Abraham.

    [ Notable Relationships with currently living survivors ]

    [ Abraham Ford ]
    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.

    Character Conclusion [ Opinion Piece ]

    Rosita is criminally underdeveloped, in my opinion. It really wouldn't take much to have us get to know her life before the apocalypse. However, I can say that at least she's more developed than her comic counterpart. I'll take what I can get. I do love her feistiness, beauty, and Christian is a decent actress.

    I agree that she is underdeveloped. I hate to see her character go to waste solely because she is the "eye candy." Seeing her in 'Crossed' made me push for her potential. It's realy a shame that is as far as they have gone with her character. I hope to see more of her in season 6. I am definitely a fan.
