Soon after Issue 97, Eugene and Abraham are still seen talking about Rosita, and Abraham talks about how he wants her to be happy with Eugene. Immediately after, Abraham is shot with an arrow through his head, killing him. In shock, Eugene screams, grabs Abraham's gun, and runs back to the Alexandria Safe-Zone. An arrow is shot at Eugene, but misses the mark. He is then stopped and captured by a small group of Saviors. The leader of this group is revealed to be Abraham's killer, Dwight.
Back in the Safe-Zone, Carl opens the door on a sleeping Andrea and Rick, who are just waking up. Shots are heard by the three, and Rick tells Carl to stay in the house while Rick goes to investigate where exactly the shot came from and why.
Outside the Safe-Zone, Eugene is still being held hostage by the Saviors. Dwight is demanding Rick let his group inside the Safe-Zone. Soon after, Eugene bites Dwight's crotch, sending the scarred man into severe pain. Dwight orders the men to shoot and kill the Alexandria Safe-Zone citizens. Right after, Rick fires off a shot to help Eugene get free. Andrea orders the others to line up on the fence and pick off the remaining Saviors off. Many of the Saviors are killed. With Dwight and the other Saviors retreating away from the Safe-Zone, Rick tells everyone to follow them so they do not regroup. Rick and Andrea discover Abraham's body, and take the corpse back inside to bury it. Holly is shocked to see Abraham's body and begins to mourn. Andrea asks Rick what they will do next. Rick replies that he does not know.
