Hey Lori…

God, how long has it been…

Carl and Judith are great… they’re growing, they’re changing, they’re surviving… Carl’s a man now, making good and bad decisions just like me… Judith is getting so big and Maggie swears she looks more like you… I’ve always seen you in her…

Lori… I’m slowly starting to put it back together…. We’ve lost Glenn, Beth, Hershel, Andrea… Maggie’s pregnant… she and Glenn finally got married. Our home, isn’t our home anymore… we’re fighting. We’re always fighting.

So… there’s something else…

I’ve fallen in love again…

I didn’t think it was possible. After you, I just thought, well, I didn’t think initially, but just when I had met our daughter, I met someone else as well…

Michonne. Her name is Michonne.

Lori, I know in the end it was bad for us, but I always wanted what was best for you and I know in the end, with your sacrifice, you wanted what was best for Carl, for Judith…

God, her name is Judith…

Michonne is a wonderful mother… while she will never replace you, she had taken up that mantel and I love…

Lori, I’m in love with Michonne… I’m sitting here, watching her sleep and as bad as things have gotten, as much as we’ve lost, I’m hopeful.

This new world and this beautiful, intelligent, brave woman has granted me the opportunity to be the man I never could be…

I love you, Lori, and I miss you. I’m thankful for the life we had. For the child we shared and for the child you sacrificed yourself for. Please know that they are in good hands.

I’ll see you eventually, my dear, but until then, rest well…

Goodnight

Ooh, you know I have some thoughts...

No, they would not.  There marriage was hanging on pre-ZA.  Post ZA she was pregnant with his BFF’s baby, who he had to kill.  He could hardly look at her.  The damage was irrefutable. 

Not to mention the attraction Rick felt, instantaneously to Michonne.  They’re biochemistry syncing up aside, Michonne understood Rick (and how to handle him) in ways never could or would understand.  When you find someone who genuinely gets you?  Dude, it’s a wrap.  You can’t turn someone around from that.  The appeal of true, unadulterated happiness is too strong.  You end up making concessions on things, like oh say, going to Washington, when you wouldn’t have before.  Because that’s what real love is.

Bottom line: Rick did not have that with Lori.  Hell, take Shane and Judith out of the equation, he still would have told her, “Bye, Felicia” once Michonne rolled up.
