Rick is the leader. Michonne respects Rick and she believes in Rick. She doesn’t hang out that long with someone she does not respect or believe in, you see with the Governor she was out quickly because she could see this guy is bad at the core and she can see with Rick this man is great at the core. So she has a respect for him and she’s willing—she actually wants to enhance that part of him sometimes…she believes in his leadership abilities and she actually wants to remind him that’s who he is…she chooses to ask him what the plan is because she wants him to remember who he is. She wants him to remember who he is. Michonne definitely has leadership components, but at the same time she really respects Rick and she wants to keep him in his identity which is a leader. Rick is a leader. But Michonne could lead, too.
