- "I saw my daughters... I got to talk to them. (...) I know. Maybe it won't... but this time when I saw them... I was able to walk away. I couldn't keep living in that moment with them anymore."
- —Michonne to Pete about her daughters [src]
Michonne is the comic-adapted protagonist of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead: Michonne. Taking place during the time gap before Issue 127 in the Comic Series, it tells the story of Michonne during this time, confronting her inner demons.
Little is known of Michonne's life prior to or as the outbreak began apart from the fact that she was married to a man named Dominic, and lived in an apartment in an unknown city (most likely Atlanta) with two daughters named Colette and Elodie. The fate of her family are unknown. Through hallucinations she has, it is possible that her daughters may have died and/or reanimated during the initial stages of the apocalypse; it is believed that Michonne suffered a permanent psychological trauma because of that. According to Michonne she spent more time worrying about work then to make time for her family.

The episode opens with Michonne restraining Randall. Regardless of whether she killed him in the previous episode, she puts a brown bag over his corpse, either to feign that he's really alive to Norma during the trade later or keep him quiet. She and Sam discuss what to do next, though Sam storms off to her father's corpse. Michonne follows, helping or ignoring Sam's attempts to bury her father.
Hours later, Norma appears outside the house. She talks with Michonne about a trade offer, revealing Pete (Determinant) and the rest of her friends as well. She proposes they trade, Randall for her friends. As a way of showing she is genuine, she frees Pete straight away or fires a flare to reveal the crew to Michonne. (Determinant)
The two parties debate the trade, Michonne having Sam show a bag covered Randall to show/feign he's alive. As they talk, Jonas or Gabby (Determinant) express anger and a desire for retribution for what happened at Monroe. Norma tries to calm them to no avail; they kill Berto, creating a panic in the debate. Norma apologises for their actions, trying to calm the situation. However, Walkers heard the gunshot and begin to approach the group. The exchange can take various forms:
Randall is alive, Michonne makes the trade: Michonne removes the bag off of Randall, enraging Norma upon seeing how heavily beaten he is. Regardless, Norma allows Oak and Saddiq to be freed, the pair hiding behind the gate. Randall is shoved to Norma, the women cutting him free of his bindings as more Walkers appear. Once freed, Randall charges at Michonne and tackles her. In self defence, Michonne or Sam (Determinant) kills him. Norma is deeply angered, ordering her group to attack them.
Randall is a Walker, Michonne makes the trade: Michonne leaves the bag on Randall's head, shoving him towards Norma. Norma allows Oak and Saddiq to be returned. As she removes the bag from Randall's head, she realises he is a walker. She puts him down, quickly ordering her group to attack Michonne and the others.
Randall is a Walker/alive, Michonne does not make the trade: Due to the growing tensions, Michonne calls the trade off. Angered, Norma shoots Oak in the stomach, causing Pete to instinctively shoot Jonas dead. In the commotion, Randall tries to break free from Sam or is thrown forward (Determinant), promptly shot by her. Norma goes to attack but is kicked down by Oak. Saddiq makes it inside as Norma orders her group attack.
Randall is a Walker/alive, Michonne signals Paige: Michonne seizes the moment, signalling Paige to kill Norma. She takes a shot, successfully hitting Norma in the shoulder. Her companions are shocked at the attempted killing, shooting at the group and killing Oak in the process. The scene now plays out as if the player verbally refused to trade.
Norma and her group break down the barricaded door, invading the house with Walkers in hot pursuit. Michonne retreats behind the fountain, killing walkers and survivors alike. However, Norma fights her way towards Michonne, the two engaging in a bloodied fist fight. If Zachery is still alive, he intervenes, trying to stop Norma only to be shot dead by the women. (Determinant) Norma then gains an advantage, drowning Michonne in a pool of water. However, Michonne reaches for her machete, successfully using it to force Norma off and amputates her right arm off. As the women scream in pain, walkers approach and begin to devour her. She is then either shot dead by Michonne or is left to be devoured by the walkers.
Michonne then flees to the house, regrouping with others. She quickly barricades the front door with assistance from Pete. As she surveys the house, she notices a man lighting a Molotov. Despite shooting at him, he succeeds in tossing the Molotov in to the house, setting it ablaze. She quickly becomes separated from the others, forced to crawl through the blazing house.
