Eric helps his boyfriend Aaron recruit survivors into the Alexandria Safe Zone.  While Aaron is very social, Eric is more serious, cautious and grim.   The pair watch groups in secret to see if they are good people and if they are, recruit them.  Aaron recruits by revealing himself and talking to groups without weapons.   Eric would hang back and listen from a nearby location and is ready to intervene should the groups attempt to attack Aaron.  Once recruited the pair brings the new members to Alexandria Safe-Zone, where Douglas Monroe makes the final decision on whether they should be invited into the group.

Aaron approaches Rick and Abraham Ford to recruit them.  Rick knocks Aaron out as he does not trust him.  Michonne tells Rick that Aaron is nothing like the Governor and can be trusted.  Aaron then proves himself by helping fight off some zombies.  A flare goes off from the supply crew of the Alexandria Safe Zone and the whole group rushes to help them.
He brings the group to Alexandria Safe Zone where they join the group.
