In one line, 'The Walking Dead' made the viewers deeply dislike one character

Glenn and the rest of the gang got a big shock in Sunday's episode of 'The Walking Dead.'
Eugene's an a-hole. Abraham's backstory is as messy as a parking lot of water-soaked walkers. And toilet water is cool to drink in a pinch. We learned all this and more in the latest episode of The Walking Dead.
But let's start with Abraham because he's important in this entire equation.
In this episode, we learned that Abraham's family fled after the zombie apocalypse brought out his violent side. (Or, one could wonder, maybe he was a violent person all along.) Nonetheless, after seeing Abraham beat several men to death, his family fled one night and left him only with a note in which they instructed him not go looking for them.
That's a bold statement to make at a time when the world is scarier than ever.
But Abraham did eventually find them — dead, that is. And upon seeing that his wife, daughter and son were no longer among the living, Abraham was prepared to kill himself...until Eugene emerged from the woods, being chased by walkers, and tells him what turns out to be a huge lie.
Eugene, essentially, gave Abraham a reason to live. So, what, we're left to wonder by the end of the episode, is Abraham to do when he learns the truth: Eugene is not a scientist and does not have a cure.
Toldja: Eugene = a-hole.
This revelation comes after an episode that finally saw Eugene man up a bit. In one scene in particular, he killed walkers with a firehouse, which was simultaneously cool and kind of a dick move, considering they were drinking toilet water.
Then, after trying but failing to sabotage the mission to D.C, he confessed: "I lied. I'm not a scientist. I don't know how to stop it."
Comic book readers apparently knew this was coming. They knew that Eugene was only lying to ensure his survival, to ensure he had a team. (Disclaimer: I have not read them and was accordingly peeved.)
But now we're left to wonder: Is the gang going to head to D.C anyway? As Eugene pointed out, D.C — being the nation's capital and all — is likely a place with some sort of stability and safety. Are they going to let Abraham go full Abraham on Eugene again? Is Eugene even still alive? Or are they going to toss him to the herd of stinky walkers now blocking their path?
Time will tell.
