If there's anyone she should trust, it's Michonne, who saved her life and kept her alive for 7 months, and at this point Michone obviously doesn't trust the Governor who is keeping them imprisoned while trying to make them believe their free. All in all, Andrea makes stupid decisions, and has ever since her sister died. She's been facing the same internal conflict since then, and there's been no character growth.
It's amazing what medicine, good food, comfortable bed, clean clothes and a shower will do for your trust in other people...and "secure streets" to walk around in
For me, it seems she wants to believe/trust at this point...which i think is perfectly natural
We'll see where it goes
