Michonne (Danai Gurira) is arguably one of the most mysterious, if not badass, characters on The Walking Dead. We’ve seen juicy tidbits of character development here and there, but this season we want (read: need) to see a lot more from this fan favorite.
Here’s what we want to see from Michonne in The Walking Dead Season 4:
See More of Michonne's Emotional Core
We know our katana-wielding heroine is so much more than her sword skills. We are dying to know more of her backstory and what her ultimate intentions are. Now, we aren't necessarily rooting for Michonne and Rick to hook up (which is in the realm of possibility), but we're not opposed to her opening herself up a little more — even if it means getting in a relationship. Michonne definitely doesn't need a man to take care of her, but that doesn't mean she doesn't deserve affection. (Or maybe just sex, because is it just us, or if everyone else getting it on?)
We saw her open up a bit last season when she went on a mini-mission with Rick's son Carl, and we want to see more of this kind of character development. Earlier this year, actress Danai Gurira exclusively told Wetpaint, “I think there are stages and steps for [Michonne] — getting to the point where she can really become vulnerable to a whole group of people and offer her commitment to them.”
See Michonne Get Bloody Revenge on The Governor
Michonne may have taken The Governor's eye and his daughter, but true victory means avenging Andrea's death by taking his life. We prefer she go the quick, double-katana beheading route, but we think some crazy torture might be in the cards. We wouldn't put it past her after everything The Gov did to her. Can't really blame her!
See Michonne Take on a Leadership Role
Michonne is clearly crafty — she figured out how to camouflage herself amongst the zombies and survived alone in the woods for we don't even know how long. She also figured out The Governor's deal way before anyone else. (If only Andrea had listened!) Michonne protects the group and stays calm in the face of adversity, but for some reason is not a part of the decision-making process. If Rick had called on her for support sooner in Season 3, things may have ended up less bloody.

Michonne is one of the best things about The Walking Dead, and with the writers' penchant for killing off any and everybody, we want to see her storyline develop more fully and play out until the (gory) end.
