According to ComicBook.com on March 17, AMC's "The Walking Dead's" creator, Robert Kirkman had some things to say about the future of the show. Kirkman has explained the situation in what involves each individual character.
“We’re not going to slow things down, but if I had a criticism of Season Three, it would be that we didn't focus on character development".
Giving a limit of characters per episode
That being said, it looks like fan have a newer format to look forward to. In a previous episode of season three, "Clear", there was indeed getting to know the characters on a personal level when Rick, Carl, and Michonne. That specific episode, since there were only four characters to focus on, allowed to delve into the characters more.
Kirkman said, "We’re going to focus on fewer characters per episode".
Delving into one character's development already
Already in tonight's season episode, Andrea asks Michonne of the two jawless walkers that she keeps dragging around with her on chains all the time for her protection and who they were before they turned. Michonne reluctantly expresses they were just as bad as they were before they became walkers. This had probably raised eyebrows with fans about the history she's had with her chained up walker "friends".
