I don’t think I will ever get over the fact that Rick ASKED her for the gun. Like even with the stakes so high he is literally sitting there making sure that she is okay with his decision.
He respects her as an equal so much and when they disagree they talk it out and he opens up and lets her know how scared he is of losing her or anyone else. Even though Michonne doesn’t want to agree with him, she can’t argue that he is right and respects him enough to admit that and try.
I just love how their love for each other was built on mutual respect and it continues to show. No matter how dire the situation gets we still see them respecting each others decisions and even when they disagree they discuss it and don’t try to leave the other out of the loop and are able to admit when they are wrong.
I’m just so happy that this is the romance we get for them because I honestly couldn’t see it any other way.
