One of the longest running characters on The Walking Dead series bid goodbye Sunday night. It has long been planned that last night’s episode would be the final episode for Danai Gurira, who plays Michonne.
The episode dropped a bit of a bombshell by implying that Rick (Andrew Lincoln) is still alive. Michonne found his boots and his phone while she was at Bloodsworth Island. After talking with her adoptive daughter, Judith (Cailey Fleming) she decided to go in search of Rick.
While this is allegedly Gurira’s last episode, the ending was extremely open-ended. The way the characters throughout this franchise have been known to intertwine, it would not be surprising to see a reprisal of her role at some point. That is, if Gurira isn’t busy with her Marvel movies and new HBO show, Americanah.
Fans of the long-running series flocked to twitter to celebrate Guirira’s final episode, and bid farewell to a beloved character.
