We’re formally introduced to this BAMF in Season 3’s premiere when she effortlessly dispatches three zombies with two swipes of her blade. Andrea is ill and they’re holed up in an abandoned general store. We don’t see the pair of them again until Episode 3.
Michonne doesn’t say much, as she’s wary, observant and she don’t trust a motherfucker. Even though they’ve been together and on the run for seven months, it’s hard to say how much she trusts Andrea, and imho, she shouldn’t put too many eggs in that basket if Episode 3 is any indication. Word on the street is that The Governor ain’t no joke, and Andrea, who is white, has already taken a liking to him. Michonne has already expressed her interest in bailing out of Woodbury, the “town” where they’ve been taken (emphasis on taken), but Andrea, operating under White Girl Logic, says they should stay a while and get their shit together.
Michonne, being a BAMF, casually replies, “My shit ain’t never stopped being together,” before she walks off. The episode ends shortly thereafter.
Too early to give my opinion on how much screen time she has. But she has a major role in the comics and she’s a popular character with a solid fan base. Not that that’s ever stopped TPTB from fucking BW’s shit up on the small screen.
