It was important to have her saving Rick in that moment. We never want to show Rick as being this action hero; he is this everyman, and I like the idea of there being a physical confrontation between Rick and The Governor. In an action movie, Rick would totally decimate that guy — but that’s not our show. We can show our hero getting one over on him and then having him actually face death in a very real way. We thought it was cool to have Michonne come in and stop that. - Robert Kirkman
'My name is Michael Scofield. My brother is facing the electric chair, framed for a crime he did not commit. After his appeals were exhausted, I knew that there was only one way to get him out. 24 hours from now my brother is scheduled to die - but the way I see it, 24 hours from now, we will be out of the country.'
