Before the apocalypse, there was a plan to build a mall near a residential neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia. As a result, a construction company began breaking ground at the site and delivering materials and work equipment to the site.
During the onset of the apocalypse, the residents of the Alexandria Safe-Zone found this location and used the supplies that were left there in order to build the walls in order to protect their community from the dead and attackers.
Abraham is now working as a part of Tobin's construction team as they are starting the process of expanding the wall. While gathering materials from the mall construction site they are attacked by numerous walkers. During the gunfire, the lookout Francine is knocked from her perch. Tobin shows a need to leave her behind, but Abraham rushes in and manages to save her life.
