When fans were first introduced to Michonne (Danai Gurira) in the Season 2 finale of The Walking Dead, she had two zombie "pets" with her. Both had their jaws and arms removed while walking behind this samurai-wielding survivor. Ultimately, Michonne had to put her zombies down in Season 3. But now she's found new undead friends to accompany her on the road. AMC has released two photos from the Season 4 mid-season premiere, "After", one of which shows Danai Gurira's character with these zombie pets trailing behind her on a makeshift leash. After the mid-season finale, "Too Far Gone", the group of survivors were separated after the assault on the prison, but Michonne seems to be doing just fine on her own. The second photo shows Carl (Chandler Riggs) lost in deep thought while his dad Rick (Andrew Lincoln) rests on a couch. Will the prison group reunite in the second half of Season 4? Find out when "After" airs Sunday, February 9 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
Rick and the group are still reeling from the loss of their home, family, and friends. With the destruction of the prison, we see the group of survivors broken apart and sent on divergent paths, unsure of everyone else's fate. What was a challenging life behind fences and walls grows that much more perilous and precious as they are exposed to new dangers, new enemies, and heartbreaking choices. They will have their faith thoroughly tested -- a faith that breaks some of them and redeems others.
