The Walking Dead Midseason Premiere: Michonne Finds Hershel (GIF)


Tonight, the long awaited return of The Walking Dead is finally upon us. Just a fair warning, there are very important spoilers from the episode contained within. If you have not watched the episode, and do not want any part of the festivities ruined for you, I sincerely suggest you click back until you have watched the episode. If you are all caught up, and ready to see everything once again, please enjoy.

Seriously…this is your last chance.

Tonight, as we get tonight started, we see that the walkers have overrun the prison once again. Michonne is making her way through the chaos. She has with her brand new walker pets. This way the other walkers are thrown off, and not attempting to turn Michonne into dinner. This is the same technique we saw her using when we were first introduced to her.

As she makes her way through all the wreckage, she comes upon something I am sure that none of the inhabitants of the prison would want to see.

Michonne stumbles upon the disembodied corpse of their dear friend Hershel. As you remember, Hershel was mercilessly beheaded in front of everyone, including Hershel’s two daughters Maggie and Beth. However, it was Michonne who was right next to Hershel when everything went down.

Knowing what she has to do, Michonne does the merciful thing, and sinks her Kitana deep into Hershel’s skull. Now, she has to make it through the chaos knowing that not only did she watch one of her few close friends get brutally murdered, but that she had to end his “life” a second time, this time as a walker.

Here is a look at the way the scene played out.
