Eugene is first seen when he arrives at Hershel
's farm which is now been occupied by the remaining prison survivors. Eugene claims that he knows what has caused the plague, but will not disclose any information with the remaining survivors, including Abraham
, and will only share information with officials in Washington DC
. This along with the thought that Washington is the only safezone, prompts the rest of the survivors to head towards Washington in order to stand a chance at living.
During the journey, Eugene studies various zombies
in order to gain further knowledge of them. But at the same time remains in the shadows of the convoy to Washington.
After the Hunter ordeal, it is discovered that Eugene had been deceiving the rest of the group, and was not a scientist, but rather a science teacher, using the radio as an excuse to get to Washington DC.
