* GoodAllAlong: Sam turns out to be a NiceGirl who's simply misguided in the apocalypse.



* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler: Randall will die by either Michonne or Sam's hand after relentlessly taunting them.]]



* LoveMakesYouEvil: Platonic example. Norma is driven into an intense rivalry with Michonne because [[spoiler: Randall is captured and at her mercy.]]



* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The whole story arc is kickstarted by Sam's attempts to rob from the same villainous woman ''twice''. Unfortunately, Michonne and Pete's crew are dragged along thanks to her as well.



* RedemptionEqualDeath[=/=] RedemptionEarnsLife: After all the trouble she's caused, [[spoiler: Sam will either pull a HeroicSacrifice to save Michonne or sincerely apologize to her after admitting that she would've been dead along time ago without her help.]]

** [[spoiler: Berto]] gets executed by Norma's men no matter what you do.



* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: The final battle in Episode 3 could have all been avoided [[spoiler: if Randall (if still alive) didn't retaliate against Michonne's group anyway after the hostage exchange or if Norma and her goons didn't put RevengeBeforeReason.]]



* {{Jerkass}}: Randall is an ass to ''everyone''.

Randall is an ass to ''everyone''.''everyone''.
** Pretty much all of Norma's goons except for [[TokenGoodTeammate Zachary]] want Michonne's blood. A female guard even desired to kill Michonne against Norma's orders.
* JerkassHasAPoint: In episode 3, Norma's bloodthirsty goons call her out on trying to negotiate peacefully with Michonne, who ended up demolishing their safe zone in her escape, and [[spoiler: exchanging ''The Companion'' crew for [[{{Sadist}} Randall's]] life (if you kept him alive), despite the fact that he ditched them in their time of need to gain revenge.]]



* KillEmAll: Norma orders her group to kill Michonne's entire group [[spoiler: after the death of Randall.]]

* MoralMyopia: A very similar situation to Season 2. In Episode 1, Michonne and Pete discover a group of people who were massacred, including a young child, and are horrified by it. In the very next episode, Michonne and her group escape the community of Monroe, but burn the whole place down in the process, leaving everyone homeless. And by the end of the mini-series, [[spoiler:almost everyone from Monroe is either killed by Michonne and Sam's group or devoured by walkers]]. Monroe was a relatively peaceful community filled with people [[PunchClockVillain just doing their jobs]], and some (if not many of them) were innocent. Michonne and Sam end up burning Monroe down [[spoiler:and are largely responsible for most of the residents getting killed]] all because two members of this community (Randall and Norma) were antagonistic towards them, and no one ever calls them out on this.

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Michonne, Sam's brothers, Paige, Pete, Siddiq, and (if she's alive) Sam all manage to get away from Norma and her thugs, and most of the Monroe community (Norma and Randall included) are dead. However, dozens of people have died, Sam and her family must find a new place to live, Pete has lost both Oak and Berto, and Michonne still hasn't fully recovered over leaving her daughters]].

** [[spoiler:Randall in the final episode. If you hand him over to Norma, Randall will ''immediatelly'' attack Michonne for no reason the second she frees him, prompting Sam to kill him in self-defense]].
* UngratefulBastard: To hammer in how much of an ass Randall truly is, [[spoiler:in the final episode, he attacks Michonne even if she releases him to Norma. There's no reason behind this, especially since Norma would've kept her word, and the two of them would've left Sam and her family alone and wouldn't have burned Sam's house down]].

* TheFaceless: In one of Michonne's nightmares, she encounters a strange woman in the shadows who doesn't reveal what she looks like.

* TheFaceless: In one of Michonne's nightmares, she encounters a strange woman in the shadows who doesn't reveal what she looks like. When she hallucinates her daughters, their faces are always shrouded in darkness - [[spoiler: until the end of Episode Three.]]

Added DiffLines:

** You can choose whether to [[spoiler: murder Randall for what he has done, or keep him alive as a bargaining chip. Letting him live greatly upsets Sam, whose father Randall has just killed, but killing him enrages Norma and leaves you without a hostage to negotiate with.]]

** As unhinged as he becomes, Kenny's actions aren't entirely irrational or baseless. [[spoiler: His treatment of Arvo is horrible, but Arvo tried to ambush the group, tried to run away from them across the ice to a cabin, getting Luke killed, and shoots Clementine when he, Mike and Bonnie were stealing the vehicle. His desire to leave with the truck as soon as possible is seen as insane by everyone, but last time Kenny fixed up a vehicle, it got stolen when the group's attention was directed elsewhere. When everyone is asleep, this is ''precisely'' what happens, [[EtTuBrute by Mike and Bonnie no less.]]]] Granted, these cases have traces of SelfFulfillingProphecy given that Kenny's actions played a part in their reactions, but he's not entirely wrong in what he's saying.
