Reveling in Richonne
#90: The “Few More Days” (7x12)
Y’all we’ve arrived at the final Richonne moment of 7x12! 🎉And it is an adorably perfect moment if I do say so myself. 😊
So the Trash Lady clearly folds and gets in formation once Rick lays out the deal of their negotiation. You can tell that Rick is still super annoyed and frustrated that these Garbage Patch Kids are so difficult and I love that Michonne sees that he’s upset and she makes her way over to him.
Like this is a wife that is so in tune with her man and knows exactly how to comfort him and reach him for whatever occasion.
And so they stand in front of each other, all up close and personal as usual. Like for real they are standing super close in this public place and I love it cuz it just further proves that these two are 100% magnets. 👌🏽
And, looking all glowy and peaceful, Michonne tells him “You get a few more days, before what happens next.” I’ve mentioned it before, but I have to say it again; I really do adore the tone of the way these two talk to each other. 😍
Like she’s just so uplifting and gentle with him in this moment and again she’s saying his words back to him with the whole “what happens next” and “few more days” cuz she knows that’s what he’s been wanting.
It’s also cute that she tells him you get a few more days cuz you know she means “a few more days out there with me” lol. And Rick also knows this and he proceeds to have the cutest dang reaction. 😋
Like he really hears her out and then legitimately visibly perks up upon realizing this means they get more time together.
It’s adorable the way he curiously and happily says, “Few more days?” Like y'all this man was super annoyed just seconds ago and now his entire demeanor has changed and he’s practically cheery. 😊
And Homeboy low key looks entranced too lol. Cuz they were already standing super close and then he steps even closer to her. Like all of a sudden no one else was even there anymore, it was just the two of them.
Hearing that he gets a few more days to just be with her is music to his ears. And it’s clear this woman holds the keys to his heart, y'all.
Plus, it’s cute that the writers do this cuz, throughout the whole episode, Rick consistently wanted a few more days and so it’s nice that they end with him getting what he wanted from the beginning. Like it feels full circle. And we actually get a rare TWD happy ending. 🙌🏾
And I love that Michonne one; knew how to lift Rick’s spirits in this moment two; put a positive spin on this frustrating gun situation by reminding Rick this means a few more days to just live and three; when Michonne then replies, “That’s right. We’ll find more, figure it out. Soon. In a few more days.” It shows how she’s evolved too.
That talk with Rick in the van has opened her own eyes to know that time is limited and so you can see that she too is excited for and plans to cherish these few more days they get.
Originally, she was so ready to just get this fight started and over with but now she’s okay with the fight being put off for a little bit. This lets us know she’s come to terms with how short life can be and so she’s ready to make the most of their time as well. They’re fully on the same page once again. 👌🏽
And it’s sweet how positive her words are too. Like she really is Rick’s cheerleader and she’s confident that they’ll figure things out so long as they figure it out together.
I just love that, despite the gun situation being unnecessarily prolonged, they’re both low key happy that it means more time together. Like basically, this implies that R&M got a “Say Yes 2″. 😋
They spent a whole trip together and yet here they are excited for even more time. That’s how you know it’s the real love. 💯
Again this was such an amazing husband and wife moment and what made it even better is that after that proposal it feels like they too know that they’re husband and wife.
Like they look at each other like they’re married and they know it. And I love how visibly happy you can tell they make each other. Just the idea of a few more days is enough to make them leave that junkyard feeling like they won. 😊
And then they walk off holding hands cuz TWD has no chill. 😂 I love it! Them holding hands here just lets you know that they really do know they’re married and that those magnets are alive and well within them.
I adore that this is so natural for them and that, not only are they unafraid of PDA, but they do it so often and wherever they go. Here. For. It. 🙌🏾
And as they hold hands and walk off, looking like royalty, we all watched them from above, in our newfound place in Heaven. 😇 It was great.
This was legit my mood as R&M concluded what was basically a beautiful Richonne bottle…
Like you just had to turn up for all the gold that we witnessed in this episode. Richonne completely delivered in 7x12 and it was tens across the board. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
I know the episode technically ended with Rosita and her foolish plan but, for me, that handhold was the end.
(Side note tho: Rick was looking real refreshed when he was talking to Tara at the end of the episode lol. Like that was def a man who has had a nice honeymoon vacation 😂)
I remember when it ended I was like TWD should make it mandatory to have a Richonne bottle each season cuz the amount of A1 Richonne goodness in this episode was everything. 💯😊
It was so great to see Rick and Michonne just get to be Rick and Michonne, and revel in Richonne, as well as be so human and multidimensional and playful and heartfelt. Like I got my life and was buried all at the same time. 🙉😊
This episode truly was such a meaningful love letter to Richonne and a reminder of why Rick and Michonne are truly the GOAT. 👌🏽😋
I started these 7x12 posts with this and I’ll say it one last time just for good measure; In “Say Yes” we were blessed. Amen. 🙌🏾🎉😊
