We only have two more episodes to go before The Walking Dead Season 4 is officially over, and one character we haven't seen in a few episodes is Michonne (Danai Gurira). So far in the back half of Season 4 we’ve learned about her son, Andre, and the heartbreak she suffered when he and her “lover” Mike, passed. We’ve loved peeling back Michonne’s layers, but we aren’t quite sure when we’ll get to check in with her — and Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) — again. There are shots of Rick and Michonne in the promo for Season 4, Episode 15: “Us”, but they look like they could be from footage earlier in the season, not something we have yet to see.
Last we saw this trio they were headed to Terminus, but not before Rick had a scary run-in with Joe (Jeff Kober) and his motley crew. Danai recently spoke with HeyUGuys, and right off the bat they asked her what’s in store for the upcoming finale. Bold move, though Danai didn’t bite.”Now, you know I can’t tell you that!,” she exclaimed.
Even a second attempt at some finale scoop proved futile, with Danai vaguely answering, “Michonne is with Rick and Carl and they’re walking to Terminus, so we’ll see what happens…”
However, the skilled actress was a bit more forthcoming when asked about what it’s like to work with Andrew and Chandler. “It’s awesome! I love those guys,” she gushed. “It’s amazing, it’s fantastic, it’s thrilling; they’re really wonderful. I couldn’t have better playmates!”
So if Danai likes working with Andrew and Chandler so much, can we expect a Richonne coupling soon? Danai has fielded this question many times before, but her answer this time around gave us a little more hope than usual: “I will say that, you know, we’ll see what happens. Michonne has great respect for Rick and she feels she gets him. She trusts him. That’s as far as I’ll say…”
Are you excited to see what’s to come for Michonne in the final two episodes of Season 4? Weigh in below!
