What started out at a slightly mediocre episode of “The Walking Dead” certainly turned itself around quickly. Rick and Michonne finally hook up. And then they became Richone, which is kinda catchy. I and many fans of the show knew it was coming. It was just a matter of time.
I think Paul Monroe will make an interesting addition to the Alexandria community. My guess is he’s escaped from Negan’s camp and he wants to warn (naked) Rick and Michonne. I’m not a reader of the “The Walking Dead” comics so I can only make guesses.
There was a very touching moment in the woods between Michonne and Deanna’s remaining son when they discover Deanna as a walker. Did you notice how delicately Deanna’s son killed her walker self? There was definite love there. It reminded me of how gently Michonne put Hershel down. Even Carl couldn’t put her down because of how much he respected her in life.
Much of the excitement of the episode came when Paul Monroe comes upon Rick and Daryl trying to take a truck home. But there is an obvious plot problem that the writers hoped you would miss.
Rick and Daryl would never leave behind the car they came in and both be in the truck on the way back to Alexandria. But if they hadn’t, the chase scene wouldn’t have gone down like it did.
Also, I can’t figure out how Paul stole the keys from Rick. They were nowhere near each other. So if anyone can fill me in on that, I’d appreciate it.
