The Walking Dead Spoilers: Eugene’s Revelation To Inherently Turn Survivors Darker As There Is No Longer Any Hope?

In a recent interview, Josh McDermitt was asked to explain Eugene’s revelation that he isn’t a scientist in a broader context and what his confession means to the rest of the group.

“I think Eugene’s biggest goal is now — once he wakes up from this beating, if he’s still alive — how he gets back into this group,” McDermitt told “What is his place? What his is worth? I think it’s very rare for any character to look on the bright side of things. It was really cool to see Bob playing a game with Sasha. It didn’t matter what she threw at him that was so dark and horrible about the world, he found the silver lining. I think that’s rare in this world. Eugene definitely doesn’t think that way.”
