Pete Martell March 16, 2015 Share March 16, 2015 Michonne had that clock put on her by the Richonne shippers, so i'm glad it's gone :) The show chose to heavily focus many of Michonne's scenes since the back half of season 4 on Rick and his kids. The show chose to let the actors joke about or play up Richonne in the press and to have Hardwick do it on Talking Dead. The show chose to sideline Michonne when Rick gets a major new storyline and love interest. I never really saw Richonne fans get upset when Michonne flirted with Daryl, or on the occasions she's had strong scenes with other characters (like her trying to keep Sasha in check). Are there some fans who see Michonne as just a part of Rick's family or story? Sure. Yet it's likely not any more than the amount of fans who saw Carol as mostly tied to Daryl and his story in season 3. And the show still chose to take the risk of breaking her away from his story for almost all of season 4, and giving her her own journey that Daryl was not a part of, and still hasn't been a part of. If they were giving Michonne more of her own role in these episodes, then I'd feel more confident that they don't just see her as there for Rick's issues. Link to comment
