    There's so much truth in that.

    Words cannot express how much I love Abraham in his newfound dress jacket. No, seriously.

    I love Abe. His phrases are the best. Even still, not really a fan of what he's doing with Sasha and Rosita.

    I know this says appreciation and yes, he has my perma-angry face:mad::mad: after the last two eps

    BUT, I got a kick out of him covering that Cheeto-colored hair for this mission.

    Didn't know where else to put this, but I'm not exactly feeling Abe right now after how he did Rosita on the eve of battle nonetheless:mad: So I just wanted to pop in and leave a calling card as to what I would like to do to him about right now.

    The finale reminded me how much I love him. I didn't like how he broke up with Rosita, but you can tell he truly loves Sasha. I love the way he defiantly looked up at Negan. I really hope he didn't get Lucilled. Better than Glenn, but still awful.

    Abraham is a special guy, different, for sure, but special. I hope he survived the line up. Rick needs him. And, in a way, he really understands Rick. I am thinking more and more about their friendship. Abraham likes Rick and has tremendous respect for him. (None of Abe's family survived...not his fault, but he thinks so) Rick has lost his wife but not to walkers and he has keep both his children alive....in Abe's eyes, the apex of beating the constant "shit storm.". So, yeah, I like him a lot. Rick will really need him after this Negan nut has shown up...especially if it is Daryl (gasp) who was killed.

    Does he have a twin or is that guy just a really good cosplayer?

    He is a cosplayer. Not as cute as Michael, but he definitely looks like Abraham.

    Abraham Ford---The man had a mission to save the world and took it very seriously until it was found out to be a hoax yet he stayed on like the brave soldier he is protecting and loving TF especially Sasha(his kindred spirit). He is a noble character and brave up until his possible end. Standing tall in the face of tyranny and death even when he is on his knees. Willing to sacrifice himself for the greater good and the ones he loves. Here's to you Abraham Ford. You're one badass sexy brave Motherf#cker. And I will miss you if you are the LV.

    Here is a link to a great article, yahoo TV interviewed Michael Cudlitz and he spoke about the Sasha & Abraham relationship, explained the harsh Rosita break up and his Bisquick food drive. :lol:

    I love big red :gabe:

    It’s interesting what you just said about Abraham and Rosita, that even if Abraham hadn’t started a relationship with Sasha, even if he hadn’t pursued it or it hadn’t worked out, that he wasn’t going to stay with Rosita.
    Yeah, I think their relationship was one of convenience for both of them. I think there’s a very strong love there, but it has turned into almost a familial love. He’s seeing her less and less as a lover. You see that when he’s lying in bed. The sex is great, he’s not going to deny that, but he sees that she is so much more in love with him than he is with her. I think that hurts him because he feels that she deserves better than him.

    The way he broke up with Rosita seemed cold and abrupt, but was it the only way he could get through it?
    I think with his skill set, it was the only way he could do it. Look, he tried to say, “I’m leaving. It’s over.” She’s like, “Why? Why? Why? Why?” He just snaps — because he doesn’t have the words. He can’t explain it like I can explain it. It’s not part of who he is. It’s not in his makeup. He falls back to the only thing he can, which is, “If I’m really mean to her, she’ll go away.” It’s brutal. It’s horrible. It’s mean. It’s probably the most wrong thing he could say, but it’s effective.

    How long do you think Abraham has been interested in Sasha? Is that why he got in the car with her in the Season 6 premiere, when they’re Pied Pipering the walkers away from Alexandria? Even if you go back to Season 5, at Deanna’s party, when they have that conversation, do you think his feelings go back that far?
    I think it sneaks up on him. I think the whole thing sneaks up on him. He may know subconsciously, but on the surface, no. There’s no plan to get in the car, other than he identifies with her and thinks that he can help her. He’s seen soldiers that have gone through PTSD, and he knows what she needs, when really it’s the opposite. He’s the one who’s going through the trauma, and he actually needs her. I think that we subconsciously seek out what we need. In any event, I do not think that he was at all aware that this was what the future would hold at that point.

    When do you think it hit him? During their time together in the insurance office?
    Yeah. I think it was on the bridge where he realized, it hit him. He literally puts his gun down and confronts death and goes hand-to-hand with death and realizes, “What am I doing?” Up until that moment, he has nothing left to live for, so he really is making reckless choices. He does not care at that point if he dies. Then what he realizes is that it does matter. He has a tremendous amount to live for.


    He tells Sasha he’s thinking about his future, he’s going to make some moves, and he does. He breaks up with Rosita, he starts the relationship with Sasha. Do you think the next step in his mind is that he is thinking about having a family with Sasha?
    Absolutely. Yeah, that’s the question. He doesn’t know how to use the big boy words all the time, but that’s the question he’s really trying to process when he’s asking Glenn about the Bisquick. The question really is, Did Maggie get pregnant by accident or were you guys trying to get pregnant? He needs to understand why you would try to get pregnant. I think it’s because he actually thinks, “I want to have kids.” He needs someone to help walk him through “Why do I think I want to have kids? This is the stupidest idea I’ve ever had. I’m usually pretty logical about this s***. Why the hell would you want to have kids? I’m going to go to one of the smartest people I know, who is Glenn, and I’m going to ask him, 'Were you trying?’ OK, so you were planning. OK, so I’m not crazy. It’s being confirmed because you’re confirming it kinda … I’m going to keep talking, because we’re going to figure this out.”

    He eventually does. It’s wonderful, and it’s disjointed, and it’s completely nonlinear, and he’s a f***ing hot mess, Abraham.
