Michonne Was Worried
There was something funny about the scene on top of the home in Alexandria, before everything went wrong. Michonne was showing one of the Heapsters a rifle and telling her where to set up.
“Worry?” asked the Heapster to Michonne, in their minimalist language. Michonne, acting more confident than she really was, simply said “No.” The Heapster replied “Good,” followed with a simple “We win…”
Something seemed wrong and Michonne knew it, but not until it was too late.
The two snipers briefly debated about which one would be on which rooftop. Michonne’s gut instinct was to show the Heapster how to prepare, but then to leave her alone and go get higher ground.
Due to her trust and doubts about the entire plan, she didn’t really think the scenario through. She allowed this person to be in a position that would get the best of her if things went wrong.
When she realized this, it was too late.
Alexandria Won The Battle
From a distance, Rick heard a scream and then saw someone fall from the rooftop. Rick, and Negan thought Michonne had fallen to her death. After the chaos calmed down a little, however, Rick discovered that the Heapster had been killed instead.
Michonne was badly beaten up but she won the battle. Their miniature fight, in a way, symbolized the entire battle. It was a series of mistakes, but in the end, they somehow came out on top.
Michonne used a broken flowerpot to her advantage, while Rick luckily had the Kingdommers and Hilltoppers arrive just in the knick of time. The best part of the entire event was that Rick was Rick, even when Negan threatened Carl.
Do you think Michonne will be more prepared when the series returns?
