Now that you’ve had a week to absorb the shock of Rick and Michonne’s hook-up on The Walking Dead, you probably have some questions. (We do!) Such as… What took them so long? Considering Lori and Jessie’s fates, was the new couple’s first kiss one of the death variety for Michonne? And, most of all, what do you think of ‘Richonne’?
For his part, Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple recently told TVLine that he had been eyeing a ‘Richonne’ romp “for a long time,” adding that his “overall goal was to bring them to a unique place of respect and intimacy, possibly/probably leading to romance.
“At this point in the story, the characters have fought their battles and won their home, their safety,” the EP continued. “Over the past weeks, they’ve found a certain peace. And that’s when these two characters could realize what they had.”
