Plot Overview

Michonne arrives on the island with Virgil, only to find he's not been entirely honest with her.


Arc Advancement


  • It's revealed that Virgil's family is dead and winds up trapping her in a cell, as he did with three others. Michonne escapes, but spares his life, getting the others to let him leave. After finding a ship, Virgil stays behind to keep a promise to place flowers at his wife's grave.
  • Based on what Judith tells Michonne, it seems to be knowledge that Alpha is dead.


  • While getting supplies, Michonne happens upon boots that belonged to Rick. Virgil takes her to the ship that came ashore where he got them from and she finds an iPhone with a drawing etched into it of she and Judith, along with Rick's name and learns that he survived the explosion. She radios Judith who urges her to go find him instead of returning. On her way, Michonne happens upon a couple of survivors who've been cut off from a convoy and helps them.


  • Happening upon two survivors, Michonne flashes back to the moment in "When the Dead Come Knocking" when she was outside the prison gate and Rick let her in.


The Show

  • This is Danai Gurira's final episode, although she is expected to be a part of the planned film trilogy.

Behind the Scenes

  • Was originally to be the twelfth episode of the season before being switched with "Walk With Us" to be the thirteenth.
