Rick and Michonne Romance

What Did Walking Dead Duo Whisper? Is Fuller House Also Naughtier? Was Arrow Fix Too Quick? And More Qs

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Walking Dead, The Good Wife, Legends of Tomorrow and Fuller House!

1 | Anyone have a transcript of what The Walking Dead‘s Rick and Michonne whispered to each other right before doing the deed? And TVLine reader KRR asks: “How does Rick have a real picture of his kids, and Michonne has a working baby monitor, in this post-apocalyptic world?”

The Good Wife2 | Was Alicia and Jason’s Good Wife sex scene hot enough to make you suspend your disbelief that the Illinois first lady would do the deed in her glass-walled Lockhart-Agos-Lee office — with the door open? And given Diane’s iciness on all things Alicia, why are she and David suddenly so worried about being frozen out of the firm’s power structure?

3 | On Madam Secretary, do you think Henry’s new assignment to the president’s working group will be beneficial to — or make more problems for — the McCords’ marriage?

4 | Amid what was ostensibly a wholesome James Burrows tribute, did Andy Cohen’s fruitless question about the Friends being forbidden to shtup each other come off as conspicuously crass?

5 | Ian’s storyline on Shameless: a healthy, new direction for him, or completely out of character?Castle

6 | A well-trod Castle topic, but: Can we talk about the funky, chunky heels Kate was wearing to the day-long forensics seminar? And how did this slight fella lug 6-foot-2 Castle (as well as five others) to a remote location — not to mention in a timely manner that they all woke from the knockout drug at the same time?!

7 | How did The X-Files‘ Scully have the time — or knowledge! — to create a vaccine for the Spartan virus? And, as many TVLine readers noted, how did Cigarette Smoking Man sound the same as always, given that he’d had a tracheotomy? Finally, why wasn’t Mulder also immune to the virus, given that he’d been abducted, too?

8 | Did you find yourself having to pay closer-than-usual attention Supergirlto Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s water-conspiracy plot in order to figure out what was really going on?

9 | Between Supergirl‘s demanding job at CatCo and her superhero duties, when does Kara have time to watch Call the Midwife and binge The Wire? (Our job is to watch TV, and yet we barely keep up.) And did you catch Alex’s upside-down FBI badge? Oops!

10 | Are you feeling any of The Fosters’ new love interests – AJ, Nick, whatever that bartender/surfer girl’s name is?

11 | Who’s got the red-red-reddest hair: Castle’s Alexis or Shadowhunters’ Clary?

Castle Shadowhunters

12 | Chicago Fire fans, do you enjoy Severide’s, um, sexual appetite? Or would you rather that he got serious about someone?

Kate McKinnon Ellen13 | Did Kate McKinnon’s “Ellen” dance better than the real Ellen?

14 | [Looks at watch] So, Arrow’s Felicity is walking already? And given that Oliver had been battling (and losing to) Damien Darhk’s magic all season long, is there a reason he didn’t enlist Vixen, you know, sooner? Lastly, given that Legends of Tomorrow has established Quentin Lance as dead by 2046, could one interpret that as another nail in the flash-forward grave’s proverbial coffin?

15 | During black-ish, did you laugh, cry or both during Rainbow’s “I’m just so happy there’s some depth inside her!” speech about daughter Zoey? And how chilling was the usually at-odds Bow and Ruby’s united front, telling the kids about the only seven words they need if they’re pulled over by the police?

16 | Was American Crime smart to include interview footage with real life victims of bullying and school shootings in this week’s episode? Or is the show’s message already strong enough?

17 | Should Fox maybe reconsider cancelling American Idol and reboot it with the candid, kooky and very constructive Kelly Clarkson as head judge?

18 | On Legends of Tomorrow, are we to believe that lonely old Oliver wouldn’t have sought out a (ahem) more private “reunion” with ex-lover Sara before she left? And who did old age makeup better: last week’s iZombie or Legends?

iZombie Legends of Tomorrow

19 | On The Big Bang Theory, wasn’t it odd that Sheldon’s mother wasn’t in attendance for his birthday party, or at the very least mentioned? (Plus, how great would it have been to get Roseanne alumni Johnny Galecki, Sara Gilbert and Laurie Metcalf in a scene together!?)Charles

20 | The highlight of Grey’s Anatomy‘s #JapriltheMovie was the surprise resurrection of Charles, right?

21 | In light of the new low Scandal’s Cyrus has sunk to — murdering multiple police officers?! — our decapitation theory suddenly isn’t so far-fetched, is it?

22 | In Fuller House, why would the Rippers attend Danny’s going away party 22 years after throwing Jesse out of the band? And was Jesse’s semen joke a bit too risqué for a show Netflix claims is rated “TV-G”?

23 | Has Late Night host’s Seth Meyers decision to do a “Closer Look” almost every night taken some (or a lot) of the sting off the segment?

    18) izombie’s Rapture Blaine makeup was clearly better than “Get Off My Lawn” Ollie.

  2. Drew says:

    7 – I don’t get the alien DNA story anyway… wouldn’t the key to making people immune to the outbreak simply be to *not* shut down their own immune systems in the first place? Why is alien DNA a factor in this?
    14 – Felicity’s paralysis story was a waste of time. They did nothing with it. They didn’t play the drama (Barry’s five minutes of paralysis was more dramatic). And the solution was just weird. Curtis just decides to cure paralysis, so does. Then they somehow find a surgeon who is willing to implant a totally random, untested device into a woman’s spine. And only then do they show Felicity in any sort of rehab facility. But the chip doesn’t work until it’s triggered by an emotional beat in the story. Because that’s how technology works. It’s frustrating, because if the writers actually took some time to review their scripts before approving them, these storylines could actually be really good. (sorry for the rant. I couldn’t post here for a couple of weeks for some reason, so I didn’t get a chance to comment on the episode)

    • Jerri says:

      It wouldn’t be X-files if it didn’t have an alien related story.

    • Jake says:

      14. For me, it was like that joke where it says that they were in coma for two years and Justin Bieber brought the person out of their coma, because they got up and turned the radio off. It’s like she was so tired of Ollie’s crap she literally had the strength to walk away from it.

  3. Wordsmith says:

    1) I just assumed Alexandria has all kinds of frivolous pre-apocalypse stuff like cameras and baby monitors (and helium balloons, if you’ll recall)

    • wrstlgirl says:

      Yeah same here. It’s amazing what they can find on those supply runs, lol.

    • Jax says:

      They established Aaron had a camera and could develop film old school the picture like Aaron’s pics of Alexandria was a little faded. As for the baby monitor, it just requires electricity which They have from the solar panels.

    • Casto says:

      One would think that the things like baby monitors, cameras, printers, etc… would be the easiest thing to find because only comfortable, established groups with power would even bother wanting them and have use for them.

  4. M says:

    Regarding Arrow, the timing wasn’t exactly specified. We don’t know exactly how long after Curtis gave it to her that Felicity had the chip implanted and started physical therapy. I assume it was intentionally not mentioned.

    As far as Captain Lance being mentioned as dead in 2046, Diggle and Laurel also sounded like they’re dead too so hard to say if those are hints to who’s in the grave.

    Also, I might be mistaken about this, but I feel like Deathstroke Jr. mentioned Captain Lance. If he did, would seem to show that he was around after DJ arrived. Thinking I might be mistaken about him mentioning him though

    • Calli says:

      This! ^ Grant Wilson wouldn’t have known who Captain Lance was had he not been alive by the time he showed up, I’m thinking. So Diggle and Lance died later on, surely after the timeline for Arrow’s big death. I think the show left Laurel and Thea on the hook.

    • Drew says:

      Didn’t they film this episode of Legends months ago (since it premiered mid-season)? If so, the producers probably had no idea who was in the grave when it was made. Any references that were made can’t mean anything, because that future won’t exist.

      • Sherel says:

        We have to remember on Legends that this is a possible outcome but it’s not set in stone so we can’t really count on that for clues to who’s for sure in the grave on Arrow.

  5. Wordsmith says:

    Forget about Felicity walking again, I’m more curious about how Peggy Carter is back to kicking ass when, by my count, she was impaled with steel rebar and barely mobile about 24 hours earlier.

    • Lizzie says:

      MTE! That actually probably should have killed Peggy. She definitely would have needed surgery. I laughed.

      • herman1959 says:

        That’s right, Sousa’s nurse-fiancee bandaged Peggy up and, if I remember correctly, she didn’t even stay overnight.

        • Wordsmith says:

          Yeah, the whole point of jail-breaking and recruiting Dottie (other than because she’s awesome) was because Peggy could barely walk. And yet once Dottie gets captured, Peggy is suddenly ready to go charging in to rescue her. Are we sure she isn’t Deadpool in disguise?

  6. Eran says:

    21 – For all of his dark deeds, as far I’m concerned Cyrus Bean is the Easter Bunny next to Jake Ballard. Jeff Perry is phenomenal and essential to the show, whereas every scene Jake has been in, in well over two years now feels like a size 11 trying to squeeze into a size 7 shoe.

  7. LADY_in_MD says:

    You could tell by the look David gave that Andy’s question was unnecessary

  8. Erin Lowrie says:

    #14. I am so confused by Arrow lately! Like why are the flashbacks relevant anymore? I am assuming it will lead how to take down Darhk since there is magic involved? And at the end of this week’s episode I exclaimed out loud, “BS”! I mean, did Curtis put the chip in her already or did they do a time jump? Stuff was really unclear and I don’t think they should have had her walk so soon.

    Another plot i was puzzled by last week was Hawaii Five O. They had Gabriel so why was no one looking out the window to make sure he was really dead! He is definitely lasting too long this season.

  9. Calli says:

    #8 is gross, even tongue in cheek.

  10. Gabe says:

    Actually I think LOT timeline effectively disqualifies Quentin and Diggle from being in the grave bc Grant Wilson refers to the late Captain Lance as if he was acquainted with him and he didn’t have the uprising until 2031 and Diggle had to live long enough to father a son. At least that was my takeaway.

  11. DJR says:

    3) Regarding Madam Secretary – I’m getting tired of the focus on “personal” stories instead of “political” stories. What made this program unique was its intellectual approach. If the personal stories continue, I will simply stop watching.

  12. Melody says:

    1) Alexandria has a working solar grid…so they do have electricity which explains the monitor. They probably found a digital camera with rechargeable batteries. So before people bash Solar power, they should consider how beneficial it will be in the event of an apocalypse. :)

    • A fan of TV says:

      The only people who bash solar are those who stand to lose money from the move away from fossil fuels ;)

    • Joy says:

      As for the transcript of comment: Rick says “Wait a second…” and then something about it being caught between his legs [presumably his gun and holster as he takes it off and puts it down]. That is what makes Michonne laugh, then he says “We’re good to go!”

    • DV NOVA says:

      Aaron can take pictures as was established when he came on the show and how the Wolves found them. Baby monitors are also battery powered as much as they could have drawn from solar power.

  13. Hedy S. says:

    5. Ian will find a way to screw everything up, especially since it’s iffy that he is taking his meds.
    16. It was distracting. Why couldn’t they just air a 30 minute “special” on the subject?

  14. jerrired says:

    10. I liked AJ and Callie last year but now they’re just kind of boring. I usually don’t like Brandon’s love interests (aka Kat, Tayla and Lou) but I actually really like Cortney. I just don’t see any of this ending well for Brandon. She’s too complicated for his teen life. Nick is growing on me. I like the idea of Mariana being in love triangle with him and Mat. And I’m the queen of hating love triangles. But I see the potential of it to be as interesting as some of the classic tv triangles, like Brandon Vs Dylan.

    13. Yes! Love her dancing.

    16. I really liked the footage. It made the episode even more powerful.

    18. Izombie by a mile

  15. Andy77 says:

    Didn’t Rip say that the timeline in LOT wasn’t set in stone so if Sara and Palmer get back in time before the uprising happens then there is the potential that this timeline won’t happen at all. Why Sara and Palmer have to get back in time implied that their presence saves the city but that’s another story.

    Anyone remember what the date on the paper in the first season of the Flash was that indicated Palmer Tech becomes Queen-Palmer tech is? If Felicity named the company Smoak Technologies then that timeline doesn’t sync with the Flash timeline. So in short the writers are testing out a whole bunch of theories before they decide what way they will ultimately go. The absence of Laurel and Thea’s presence was noticeable which I find weird as they are two characters that actually exist in the comic books and Thea already died once and they’d hardly kill Laurel….or would they. I’m confused!!!!!

  16. Lizzie says:

    14) I was disappointed with Felicity’s paralysis storyline. Even though I didn’t want it to happen I was willing to see where it went and it went nowhere. Her walking so easily was laughable instead of emotional. So disappointing, especially as I’m a big Felicity fan. She deserved better than that crap joke of an arc.

    Also the episode of Legends with an old Oliver was an alternate future, as said by Stephen Amell.

    18) Uh, no? Why would Sara have sex with 60 year old Oliver? Wow. WTF!

  17. Steven says:

    16. As heartbreaking as the commentary was, it felt unnecessary given that it wasn’t actually a school shooting. One student was shot on the grounds of the school and it wasn’t even a character we care or even knew much about.

    • Steven says:

      Just to clarify, I don’t mean to be cold, but they seemed to try to make it seem much bigger than it was. If they had included these clips during the shooting episodes of One Tree Hill, Third Watch, or Boston Public then it would’ve made more sense. Here it just felt like it was too much.

  18. Jane says:

    #18 That hookup was eww-inducing when it first happened (Sara lunging at her beloved sister’s “soulmate”). Even grosser when it happened again during the time her sister was spiraling in alcoholism (yay for Sisterhood of the Canaries and Interchangeable Bedmates!). But you guys just made the situation the grossest with that question.

  19. Mr. Tran K says:

    13. I enjoy Kate McKinnon as Ellen and she makes the real Ellen dance our TVs.

  20. well Lance would be 80 in 2046 so….

  21. BR says:

    #1 Aaron told Rick (back in 5B) that someone had found a camera and they could develop film. That’s how he had pictures of Alexandria in his bag (and later the Wolves found them in the finale).
    Carol had the monitor with her in JSS. I just figured it worked off batteries that were picked up during a run.
    They do have solar panels in the ASZ, but Michonne and Rick had a lantern on the coffee table, so while they might have electricity, they probably have to ration it.

  22. mooshki says:

    I love Alexis’s red-red hair.

  23. Ryan says:

    14) I don’t think it’s at all odd that Quentin would be dead by 2046. He already has a heart condition and he’d be in his mid-70s by 2046.

  24. I had become exceedingly tired, and often aggravated by the Fosters’ plot lines. But the thing that caused me to finally quit the show was Teri Polo’s character becoming so unlikable and the plot line of her obsessing on bringing AJ’s brother to justice for the car accident (key word–accident). Since last season, when she became so unreasonably obsessed with her wife’s relationship with the school principal, she has become an irrational B who hypocritically overuses the endearing term “love” as a noun for those around her. Yuck. Too much other and better stuff to watch. Bye Felicia Polo.

    3 – I’m looking forward to Bess and :Henry being able to talk more because both characters are written as strong, intelligent individuals. Most shows downplay the intelligence of one character to enhance his/her partner’s importance. With the two strong actors playing these characters, there’s no need for artificial “dumbing down” of one or the other. I think Madam Secretary’s writers do a great job incorporating family life without detracting from the usual “A” story relating to Bess’s job. Wonderful show.

  26. arial2 says:

    21 – Scandal seems to be losing its center. It started out as an interesting story, following the life of a strong, powerful woman doing a highly sensitive job, while balancing the skeletons, past and present, in her closet. With each episode, the show sinks deeper and deeper into a morass of murder and mayhem, with little logic. There used to be at least a few players trying to find some morality in the chaos that is Washington, DC. Now it seems they’ve all jumped in, feet first, to become the most awful human beings they can be. There needs to be a balance of some sort restored because the show itself is becoming chaotic. It’s very disturbing when husband-murdering Sally seems to have become the most moral character on screen. (BTW, by law, Jake needs to get back into military uniform before going to work every morning. Mr. Ballard cannot be DIRNSA; he needs to be Admiral Ballard to meet the legal requirement. You’d think the writers would take advantage of how wonderfully Jake fills out a military uniform!)

  27. Alichat says:

    7) THANK YOU! I have been wondering about CSM since he popped up in the premiere. Where is his electrolarynx?!?! Why does he sound normal? And I was wondering about Mulder too. Wasn’t he given a vaccine when he was infected with the black oil? And then he was abducted. Surely between those two times, he was made immune as Scully was.

  28. Sarah says:

    I would live Severed to have a more serious someone. He and April need to make it concrete, or the writers need to stop dangling the possibility in our faces. But do we all still remember that He is married still…

  29. kath says:

    4 – the James Burrows tribute was sooo disappointing, and so obviously written (badly)
    14 – Quentin Lance died after Wilson came with his mirakuru minions in 2050. That argues he’s not in the grave, but no timeline is without change
    18 – maybe Old Oliver wanted a rendezvous with Sara, but would she want to get together with a 60 year old guy who looks like he doesn’t know what a shower is?

  30. A says:

    Is Kelly Clarkson eligible for Performer of the Week or atleast an Honorable Mention?

    • DarkDefender says:

      I would second that vote. Her performance of Piece by Piece should win an Emmy (as should her comedy performance as a judge). Love Her.

  31. 1) Someone posted a video of the Rick/Michonne kiss online where the background music is lowered. When they kiss, Rick breaks it off to say that his gun is between his legs and he takes it off and puts it down on the table, causing Michonne to laugh. And then they get back to making out haha.

  32. J.Norman says:

    19)
    “(Plus, how great would it have been to get Roseanne alumni Johnny Galecki, Sara Gilbert and Laurie Metcalf in a scene together!?)”

    I kind of wondered why Laurie Metcalf wasn’t in the episode.
    Who knows, maybe there is some lingering tension between her and Sara Gilbert or between her and Christine Baranski, , , or maybe her schedule wouldn’t accomodate it

  33. Richonne ALL THE WAY! AWESOME! Super BAD ASS POWER COUPLE!

  34. Bruce Wayne says:

    Seth Meyers is terrible. He belongs on Comedy Central as a pseudo political host. If not for Fallon’s strong lead in, coupled with Colbert’s horribly weak lead in….James Corden would be the kind of late night tv already.

  35. I have an additional question, how did Maura’s hair grow 4 inches in one week on Rizzoli & Isles?

    • Eran says:

      Many, many years ago on Knots Landing, Joan Van Ark’s character was shot in a season finale when her hair was short. The following season premiere which picked up immediately afterwards, like one ambulance ride later, had her in chin length hair. Nothing surprises me since :)

    • KLS says:

      Must be that Boston water.

    • ChicagoDan says:

      Hair extensions. Like Maura wouldn’t have the cash and vanity to ‘right’ the ‘wrong’ that was done to her mane.

  36. Dude says:

    9. I feel like these questions are getting too nit picky. Kara has only been Supergirl for a few months. She could have easily binge watched both The Wore and Call the Midwife before that. They never said they JUST binge watched The Wire. Just that they had. I managed to binge watch The Wire and juggle a demanding job so she could probably do it too.

  37. Maria says:

    That’s disgusting that this site would even suggest that Sara should hook up with a old aged Oliver with one arm who has lost basically everything. So stupid to even suggest.
