That was my second thought because I think he is full of ish. If this is the case, he has figured out a way to get commando protection during the ZA.

I don't think he did at the time he fired. Not going to go back and check but that's how I remember it.

Even so, if that's what did happen then Beryl's point is even more appropriate. Had the truck not been exactly where it was he would have likely shot one of living. Stupid is as stupid does. There's no shame in running from Zs.

He had plenty of time to jump in the truck and let the others fend for themselves or alert them after he was in the truck.

Right. And that's why he was stupid for standing there and putzing with a weapon he didn't know how to use and then ended up disabling the truck.

(Perhaps he really didn't want to go to DC, but I can't imagine he'd (him specifically) would rather be walking.)

Exactly what Tyrese told that little girl.

My 2 thoughts when Abraham claimed that Eugene is the one guy who could save the world were --

"He has watched and believed too many SyFy movies"
and
"That guy is no Brad Pitt."

I'm assuming it's not a simple thing that Eugene just KNOWS, but rather a method of "healing" it. At least I hope, otherwise just tell everyone and anyone the secret!

Yeah, that's why I'm saying it's more of an internal knowledge vs "everyone at a lot of lemons and you be cured" sort of thing.

Give him time in a lab with stuff and he might be able to do it.

Or he is just a crazy guy and convinced Abraham that he is really smart so he will keep him alive?

You left out:

"He's a few bricks shy of a load."

1. how did Eugene (is that the scientist?) survive this long?

2. Why isn't he older?

3. The answer to number 1 is to tell everyone you know the cure!

I wonder how Eugene and his big buddy met.

And isn't Eugene just a little cliche' for a scientist name? Come on.

And don't just take somebody for their word that they know how to fix everything....I'd want exact details and full disclosure.

I almost got the feel of an Aspergers thing going on with the scientist which would explain some of his actions and responses.

Funny you should say that...he reminded me of the accountant on King & Maxwell. Different actor, but similar look & feel.

So
That is the moment Eugene lost a credibility.

I know this sounds silly, but up until now the only area/people we've seen is where Rick & Crew are. They know what Rick & Crew know. Who's to say this zombie thing extends beyond a limited area? It probably does, but we just don't know.

Eugene is a glimmer of hope. In a world where hope is in short supply, someone like Abraham just might need some.

When they were at the CDC, didn't they see scenes of worldwide devastation?

You know, at this point I really don't remember. I'd have to go back and look, but it's likely. I also

Spoiler:
know how this plays out, unless they go a different direction with it. I doubt they will though.

Didn't Abraham said that Eugene was on the phone with Washington DC until they lost connection. Via a sat phone

So it sounds like it's a world problem

I may be being too literal about this but I've always assumed it was a worldwide problem.

Otherwise it's be a show about the survivors having to fight off the well armed and well equipped invaders from western Europe, Russia and China.

Unless you're trying to encourage men to look out for you.

And as many others have said, mullet guy doesn't seem likely to know anything except how to get Abraham to protect him.

Seems like Abraham gets played a lot. And he's carrying all the stuff.
