 three episodes a season: 1.01 pilot

But you know about the dead people, right? Yeah, I saw a lot of that. Out on the loading dock, piled in trucks.  No, not the ones they put down. The ones they didn’t. The walkers. Like the one I shot today. ‘Cause he’d have ripped into you, tried to eat you, taken some flesh at least.

A Richonne Ranking: 40 Moments
[39] Insomnia - Remember, 5x12

These two feel so married in Season 5 that even their conflicts feel like the marital kind. In sync even when they’re out of sync. Rick’s uneasy in this new life – some ill-fitting mutation of an old life; Michonne wants to believe in it. Ultimately, though, neither of them are sleeping soundly.

I think, while Michonne’s pushing him to be open to Alexandria, she carries much of his unease on her shoulders, having been the one to talk him into coming there. She respects the weight of her influence. She seems to hide her own hesitations because she doesn’t want to feed his concerns. And Rick wants Michonne to have her dream of what Alexandria could be, but he sees that it isn’t that. Michonne does too but, while Rick is still in a dark place after Terminus, she’s able to draw enough optimism to hope that it can be more – someday. Neither of them are wrong. And that’s what I love about every conflict we’ve seen between them.

When Michonne notices him there by the window, I think she deeply understands what he’s feeling in that moment. She can’t offer enough to appease him in their conversation, of course, but her support is reiterated and he feels it. His tactile hand on her shoulder as he walks away offers some reassurance of that. It’s sweet and casual, and we’ve now got to a place where they can be sweet and casual with each other.

  • Greg Nicotero: Rick’s got some serious insomnia. He’s in a safe place but he’s not feeling it.
  • Danai: And so does she. Not not feeling it, but it is a huge shift. It’s hard to sleep like a baby. You know that thing where you get what you want but you’re not sure if you can truly have it? It’s that state.

Happy Easter, everyone!

I used to see in colour but I slowly started building walls around myself and before I knew it, everything went black.
