The Walking Dead: Michonne On A Horse Season 4 Pic

Entertainment Weekly has posted a new image from The Walking Dead season four featuring Michonne on a horse, which is apparently called Flame. And while you might be thinking, “Huh? It’s just Michonne on a horse?” executive producer Gale Anne Hurd explains why the image is emblematic of where the series is heading in the coming season.

‘“One of the most compelling images is Michonne finding a new and possibly a lot more reliable type of transportation,” she says. “With gas at a premium, with the fact that vehicles break down, I think we would return to the days of horseback riding and you can graze them as you go in a place like Georgia. You don’t have to carry food for them. They feed themselves, so to speak. It goes along with the new approach this season of sustainability. With a horse, you can go through the woods. You can get around obstacles. You can’t do that in a vehicle. If a tree falls and blocks the road, you can’t go through the forest. You’re not going to make it through. It’s actually much more of a useful choice.”

There may be other artistic concerns too, Gale admits: “Not only that, but Michonne looks so badass on it.”

We reckon Flame will have its own fan club by the end of the year.
