Last night’s episode of The Walking Dead was more on the slow side of the zombie apocalypse than anything else. While “Inmates” was consistent with character moments, it seemed like a “filler” episode. Although 99% of “Inmates” landed with a whimper, the last 1% teased new characters and what’s to come with the last six episodes of the season.
In the comic book series, Abraham Ford is a Sergeant in the U.S. Army. Before the zombie outbreak, Abraham lived in Houston, Texas and was a sports coach. He had an ex-wife and an eight-year-old son, but lost his family. In the teaser above, we also meet Dr. Eugene Porter, a doctor who claimed to know what caused the zombie epidemic, and Rosita Espinosa, a woman with whom Abraham later develops a romantic relationship. The trio are on their way to Washington D.C. before meeting up with Rick and the group.
