Throughout The Originals Series
In Sinners and Saints, Abigail was seen in a flashback where she was chosen to participate in the Harvest. In the ritual, she was the first girl that was killed, having her throat slit by the coven Elder Bastianna.
In Après Moi, Le Déluge, her corpse was seen when it was decided that the Harvest would be completed. Her body was laid out in the cemetery to complete the ritual in the hope that she would be resurrected, but though the ritual succeeded, it the magic harvested from the sacrifices was diverted to three other witches by Céleste Dubois and Abigail, along with the three other Harvest girls, remained in limbo.
In Farewell to Storyville, according to Marcel, both Monique and Abigail reported that the Ancestors taught them more magic while they were in Limbo and also that the witch community celebrated her return with Monique's too.
In Moon Over Bourbon Street, after a month had passed since her return, she, Monique and Davina are seen reviving roses at the Lycée. Unfortunately, Davina's lack of confidence kept her from being able to magically revive her rose, and Abigail encouraged her to try harder. Abigail was later seen with Davina, Monique and Genevieve at the party.
In The Big Uneasy, she was seen attempting to interact with the Ancestors, along with Davina and Monique, in one of the tombs at Lafayette Cemetery. She then witnessed the argument between Monique and Genevieve during the coven meeting to pass on the Ancestors' orders, as she was standing next to Davina. At the Feast of the Blessings celebration, Abigail was able to command a brief but powerful gale of wind with magic at her introduction to New Orleans society. Along with Davina, she was seen talking to people. Afterwards, she was seen receiving offerings from the supernatural community at the party in exchange for her blessings. Abigail and Monique were later quickly escorted outside when Marcel sent compelled human drummers to the party, which resulted in a bloody fight between the vampires and the mortals.
In A Closer Walk With Thee, she is seen with Monique and Davina, they walked on the streets as Genevieve gave them knowledge about afterlife. She and Davina decided to hold a seánce together to try to contact Tim, Davina's deceased best friend. Even though she was reluctant at first, she still agreed to do so. However, their attempt instead caused Mikael to be able to contact Davina.
In From a Cradle to a Grave, she was with Genevieve and Monique and the other witches to help in delivering Hayley and Klaus' baby daughter. After the baby was born, she left with the other witches to the cemetery to prepare for Hope's sacrifice. In the cemetery, Monique and Abigail made an agreement that if Genevieve hesitated to kill the baby as the Ancestors (led by Esther Mikaelson) commanded, then they would kill Genevieve, allowing them to do what the Ancestors decreed while also resurrecting their friend Cassie, the last Harvest girl who had yet to be resurrected. During the ritual, Genevieve was about to sacrifice the baby when Klaus, Elijah and Hayley came to save the baby, causing Abigail and Monique to hold hands and channel the magical power of every dead witch who was buried in Lafayette Cemetery, allowing them to forcefully keep the three away while they complete the ritual. However, Klaus realized that Abigail and Monique, as the Harvest girls, were the key to breaking the Ancestors' connection, and managed to pull a metal fence post and throw it at the girls, which impaled Abigail through the stomach and pinned her to the wall behind them, killing her and breaking the connection to their ancestors.
After her resurrection, Abigail seemed to have stayed the way she was before. She seemed to be encouraging when Davina couldn't revive the rose, unlike Monique, who became harsher and more militant in her beliefs in Ancestral Magic. However, she was still very loyal to the Ancestors, and was even willing to help in killing Hayley and Klaus' baby in order to give their coven access to Hope's power.
Abigail was a young teenage witch with medium-length blonde hair and blue eyes. She stood at 5'4", and her frame was slim and petite. She, like the other witches in her coven, had an eclectic, bohemian style, and often wore casual dresses with sweaters.
