On Sunday's episode, Abe's infant son Thomas has come down with "grippe" (the old-timey term for the flu), and his wife Mary (Meegan Warner) wants to move the family to Abe's father's house so Thomas can be kept warm and better cared for by the servants there. The idea doesn't sit well with Abe, who's still livid about his father ceding to Major Hewlett's (Burn Gorman) demands to turn the town's gravestones into a barricade in last week's episode.
But if Abe has a weak spot, it's Thomas. "His son is always in the forefront of his mind, with every decision he makes," Bell told TVGuide.com ahead of the show's premiere. "It's just not about you anymore. You have to provide for, care for and protect the thing most valuable to you."
