  •  Michonne thinks the group abandoned Andrea (2+ / 0-)

    but went back for Merle.

    She knows that Daryl is Merle's brother, and hasn't known him long enough to learn his not like Merle.

    Right now, they're the people who ditched her friend to die in the woods but risked everything to save a sadistic racist psychopath.

    She doesn't trust them.

    Up until the last episode, her overall plan may well have been to try to get Andrea to leave with her, so the two of them could survive on the road without having to put up with any of the various dickheads who want to be in charge of the respective groups.

    If she tells them she knows Andrea, and that Andrea is there, that option kind of disappears.

    This is just very different than the comic - Andrea and Michonne were entirely dependent on each other for the whole winter...and now Michonne thinks she's going to lose her no matter how she plays it.

    And she has to deal with the fact that Andrea let her walk away once, and then kicked her out when she came back.

    She just lost the only friend she had and the only human being she's had any trust in for months.

    •  Maybe. But that admits that she knows . . . (0+ / 0-)

      that it's Andrea's old group, which is the opposite of what Aspe4 was saying, and which I was refuting.  

      My problem with your explanation (which I will admit is probably the closest thing to a logical one based on what little has been developed so far) is that it doesn't really explain why she wouldn't tell Andrea that she was there with her old group.  Further, and more bothersome, she made no effort to find Andrea -- she abandoned the group in order to find what the Governor was hiding.  Following your line of reasoning, this would be explainable on the basis that she was seeking evidence that would persuade Andrea that the Gov. was hiding something despicable, in order to persuade Andrea to leave with her.  Why then, would she not say something to Andrea, when Andrea walks in on her, the injured Gov., various heads scattered about, and Penny laying there?  I know she's supposed to be a character of few words, but come on.  The Gov. already sent Merle and a squad out to kill her when she left; she has to know that Andrea's best and likely only chance is to get out with Michonne, now, and yet she says nothing at all.  

      It'll be interesting to see where they go with it, but they need to do some real work to start fleshing out Michonne.  

      We are the first to look up and know, with absolute certainty, that the sword we ourselves have forged, is real.
