5. “My sh*t never stopped being together.” — We also learned a little about Michonne and Andrea’s relationship, in that Andrea — after seven months with her — still doesn’t know a damn thing about Michonne. She’s a quiet one, that Michonne. All she needs in this crazy zombie world is her katana and the company of a lovely blonde, in that order. There’s gotta be some fan-fic floating around on the Internet.
6. The Genius of Michonne’s Pets — We learn from Milton (Dallas Roberts), a new character created for the series, that Michonne’s jawless walkers are more than just cool decorations. They’re useful. Take away their ability to eat, they lose interest in doing so. They become docile. They’re lurkers. They repel other walkers. They’re camouflage. Walk with the biters, and they think you’re a biter. The downside? They starve slowly.
See? I told you Michone was the smart one.
7. The Echo — Milton also has a theory that the walkers have an echo of their former selves, traces of the person still trapped inside. This gives Michonne a case of the hairy side-eyeballs.
She clearly had a relationship with her pets before they turned. I suspect the Echo Theory will reappear later on in the series. Also, Milton is kind of creepy, like the kind of guy you might expect to be sleeping with the Walkers.
8. A Lori-Free Week — The downside, it was also a Maggie-free week. Let me make it up to you, and annoint Maggie the Alison Brie Mascot of The Walking Dead.
