Michonne, portrayed by actress Danai Gurira, is a character from the comic book series who first appears on the AMC drama in the third season. Cast members and executive producers have previously spoiled that the episode will feature Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs) heavily, but a flashback sequence also takes place. The flashback contains the life that Michonne had before she encountered Andrea in the woods near the farm.

Not much has been revealed on the show about Michonne's past, although she was against taking care of baby Judith in the prison and later became emotional when holding the little girl. From recently released photos from the second half, it seems Michonne has also picked up some new walker pets probably to help her stay alive as she is on her own again.

It's unclear how far back the flashback goes, but it might include Michonne's life before the zombie apocalypse. Learning more about her past will help fans understand why she has such a cold exterior attitude about life. The flashback could also feature how Michonne survived after The Governor's attack on the prison. She will also be affected by Hershel's death since she was right next to him when he was killed.

"After," the ninth episode of season four will air on Sunday, February 9 at 9 p.m. on AMC. The final eight episodes of the season will have a different tone and focus on the relationships between the character now that they are all scattered. New characters and new locations will also be introduced to help build a more complex story for season five.
