    So what exactly is Michonne saying when she says she knows Rick is OK because she is OK too. Is she communicating to him that she feels a bond with him? Its just a weird exchange for me...OK, let the hate fly LOL!

    I interpret the scene as when Michonne says "I know," and Rick said "how?" And she says "cause I'm ok too." That meant that Michonne knew Rick was ok because she was ok. As long as Michonne and Carl are ok then Rick will be ok himself. As long as their happy then he is happy.

    I loved this time frame in the show so much for so many reasons....

    -Rick waiting and putting his body in front of Michonnes at Terminus's gun fire. This man literally put his body in front of hers when they were being shot at :hearts:
    -When Joe of Claimers said "first we'll have the girl.." Ricks face switched into Savage mode with the thought of Michonne being raped
    -Rick turning full savage and biting Joes neck out AND Michonne not being afraid of him or judging him, I LOVED that bc Lori totally would've judged him
    -The "I'm ok" because your ok talk was so beyond sweet :holdheart:
    -I LOVED Rick telling Daryl "you're my brother" :)
    -No fear Rick telling Gareth I have a machete w/a red handle and that's what I'm gonna use to kill you lol :lol:

    This is my interpretation. Basically it was a "check in" type of situation for them. Rick was checking in to make sure Michonne was okay after the horrific thing he had to do to Joe to protect Carl and her. And Michonne is letting him know I know you're okay because I'm okay too. She's letting him know "she's still with him." That she doesn't look at him different because his brutality came out. That she understands and there is no judgment in her eyes. That she supports him, even at his darkest moments. And she always will.

    I think it's a checks and balances thing between them. At this point I think they had started to recognize how similar they were. I think for Rick, if he knew Michonne was okay with what he'd done, it's because she'd have done the same. His actions weren't outside the realm of what she'd do to protect someone she loves. If she'd not been "okay" she'd know he wasn't okay with what he'd done. She was at peace with it, so she knew he was too.

    Does that make any sense?

    This is another episode high on my list of favorites. You see the lengths that Rick will go to protect the people he loves. And he really needed to hear that Michonne was not horrified with what he did.

    I've always been curious what this scene was about...

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes the promo images include cut or edited out material, and I guess this was one of them? But like... I don't remember any walkers at Terminus, so this seems kind of elaborate to cut.

    Has anyone ever heard the story behind it?

    I remember seeing this pic floating around back at that time, but don't remember any information on it. But yeah, there weren't any walkers at Terminus, until Carol was at the fence and looked over and saw some heading towards it. I don't think there were any chained walkers though like there seem to be in the pic.

    When this promo pic was released, it led to a lot of speculation back in the day. We were like, "Do the Termites have a battle ring with walkers like Woodbury? Is this from the premiere and we'll see it later? Are these prisoners who turned? Do the Termites eat walkers?" So many theories.

    I still don't know what to make of it after seeing Terminus operate in "No Sanctuary." So it kind of makes me think it might've been a potential direction they went but decided against it.

    It may very well be. Wonder why they decided to release it then. I mean, I guess it's a shot of Michonne and RIck in action so it's gonna get us all excited. But they probably didn't think we'd notice the details. :lol:

    There are a few promo images that have been released that have made me go :tara: I don't remember that.

    Like this one from "Now" which shows Rick collapsed on the ground by the wall.

    [​IMG]

    I don't recall this at all. The scene cut after Rick got past the gate. I guess it was an extended scene/cut that we'll never see.

    It looks like the place that they ran past that had just bones in it. Walkers would be drawn to the fresh meat on the bones so maybe that chaining them up in front of the bones was their way of torturing the ones that attacked their camp? Seems dumb when they could just kill them though...

    Maybe that was the scene where Rick explained what the heck happened at the RV and how he got away:tdog:

    It was also to make him feel at ease, knowing that his closest friend was ok with his action. I feel like the writers made it a point to show how different Michonne was from Lori. We all know Lori would not have approved of the act, even if it was to protect them

    How do you know they are walkers? They could just be very savage prisoners like the one TF let out of the container. Maybe the terminus people used them for entertainment and let them eat the losers. who knows. Or maybe they may be terminus members who have gone a lot crazier than the rest of the terminus population and need to be constantly restrained but they don't want to kill them.
