    I love her explanation of Michonne right in that moment, that there's no way Negan would take everything from her.

    Also, her acceptance of fan reaction is wonderful and considerate.

    Can always count on AL and DG to respond without insulting the audience.

    Of course our King and Queen answers the question about fan reaction with class. They don't belittle or antagonize the fans, I love them so much :hearts:

    I love her answer about the stare down, "he is not taking everything away from her". Oh I can't wait for Michonne in season 7, Gimp don't screw this up.

    I transcribed some of it:

    About the finale scene:

    For these characters -- like Rick, Michonne -- to not be in control is just the most painful thing. In Michonne's mind, it was really about -- [...] -- she just would not NOT look him in the eye. Because there's no way she was going to let him take everything from her. So I'm just going to keep looking him in the eye and I'm going to -- you know, you can't, whatever happens right now, you can't take me from me.

    About the fan reaction:

    Everyone's response is valid. [...] The arc of the story as a whole is a huge story. And there's going to be responses that, you know, people are going to respond in various ways to various things.
    Thanks for posting this @WalkerVoodoo. I love that both DG and AL responded to the fan reaction with class.

    I knew she wouldn't disappoint us, just like Andy, she never does. Always so professional and respectful. Yeah, we are very lucky to have them both. :hearts:

    Great answers. Articulate and respectful as always, just like Andy. So lucky to have these two as the leads of this show.

    You can see who the artists are and the the actors are on this show. Danai and Andy are most definitely artists

    She seemed very emotional talking about it. It is going to be hard on the cast no matter who it is. And I'm convinced both DG and AL thought the cliffhanger was bogus too. LOL

    So that should assuage us that Michonne is safe and ready for battle!

    Danai and Andy really are the epitome of classy. They never seem condescending or dismissive of the fans.

    That was my exact face like wtf dude

    Danai's responses were great though, she is just everything :hearts: I love what she said about staring Negan down:michonneeye: it goes along with the convo Michonne and Rick had in 6x15 when she said she's not losing anything again.
