The Talking Dead 3.09.13

The way they discuss the episode baffles me. The discussion of Michonne and Tyreese particularly.

Host + the two guests said Rick was being foolish for wanting to kick Michonne out as soon as possible because she such a physically strong character, then they say the same thing about new guy Tyreese. We the viewers just met Tyreese, he seems like a good guy but from the viewers POV we barley know him and them and for all we know Tyreese's strategy of surviving the apocalypse is to turn tail and run. I know that's probably not the case but I hate when this show discusses new characters like they've already been fleshed out and we know themso well. Part of the dramatic struggle is us getting to know them and seeing Rick + gang know them.

I get the Governor will eventually retaliate, and the loss of Darryl makes the group a LOT weaker and the idea of beefing up your numbers sounds intriguing, but Michonne particularly don't seem so smart of an addition to the group. She hasn't shown to be a team player, before she knew Woodbury was a bad place she didn't want to be there, she might be bad ass with the swords, but Gov and gang have guns. Yeah she might have gotten the drop on Merle, but if it came down to protecting the prison I sense the writers will find some crafty ways to make her useful in a fight, similar to Aquaman always finding it convenient enemy bases were near water. Give the girl some lines dammit, she's 1 dimensional at the and not intriguing anymore, and seems too damaged to be of any use, pining over Andrea.

How I see Michonne vs guys with guns

Wait - I'm confused. Do they walk, or do they talk?

They walk, they talk, they dance.

I think they can't help but color their opinions of the chracters with what they know about them from the comics.
