10 Things We Learned From ‘Say The Word,’ Last Night’s Michonne-tastic ‘The Walking Dead’

7. Michonne Is a Walking Stink Eye — The woman has one expression: Side-eye.

Michonne continues to be incredibly distrustful of The Governor, for good reason. When Michonne gets her sword back, she finds The Governor’s journal with some names and a lot of lines. “You get off on that? Poking around in other people’s things,” the Governor asks. “You got nothing to hide here.” “People who got nothing to hide don’t usually feel the need to say so,” Michonne correctly replies.

Speaking of people who have a lot to hide, when Michonne let out the imprisoned biters and went katana on their face, it may have been the first time we’ve seen her smile.


8. “You can’t leave unless they make you” — Frustrated that The Governor wouldn’t kick her out, and uneasy about what was going on in Woodbury, Michonne took leave of the place, although Andrea wouldn’t follow along, concerned that Michonne was being paranoid. ALWAYS TRUST THE WOMAN WITH THE KATANA. Also, again, what the hell happened to Andrea? Of all the great things about this season, the one glaring issue I have with it is that destruction of Andrea’s character. She was last season’s bad ass. She was the one about to get in bed with Shane. She was the one meant to be with Daryl. Maggie has transformed herself into last season’s Andrea, while Andrea has morphed into an eye-lash batting Stepford. Why does she insist on being the one dumb character in this season of The Walking Dead?

9. Zombie Kill of the Week — It’s a close call between Michonne’s katana assault, and Rick’s grief-killing rage porn, but the edge goes to Rick.

10. “Mere words cannot adequately describe the festivities ahead.” — The night’s big celebration was basically a UFC match with the added element of biter-less Biters to give the crowd something to cheer about. The Governor thinks it’s good for morale (WOODBURY! F**K YEAH!), while Andrea thinks its barbaric. All I know is, when Merle is around, I actually find myself feeling sorry for the Walkers.
