“The relationship with Rick and Carl was also a rebirth of a family she had lost, and it turned out that
Rick was the love of her life. That progression has been very
interesting to play because she went from someone who spoke very little
and didn’t trust people to someone who’s far more level-headed and
willing to help people who she sees in the same place she was in.”
- Danai Gurira
At the same time, she’s caught between her love for her partner, the love of her life, and who she is. She just knows in her gut and instinct and intellect that there’s always a way to fight. - Danai Gurira
I don’t think Michonne gets enough credit for being such a STRONG women and I’m not talking about “the badass chick with a sword” it’s something much deeper.
She watched Rick get emasculated REPEATEDLY like being dragged ( literally) by Negan, that moment when carl almost got his arm chopped off and everyone just being a dick to him.
She seen Rick in his lowest point , yet something about him she’s still loves(probably them curls) even when she got frustrated she never blamed or took it out on him. She’s gives him unconditional love which he probably isn’t used too. I even loved the fact that in 7x4 they were on different terms but they still SLEPT in the SAME bed together. They reached a level of relationship goals that are out of this world in such a short time. That ICONIC speech in the cell sealed the friggin deal for me.
She’s such a dynamic character and it drives me CRAZY when people don’t see that. Rick and Michonne have a connection unlike any couple I’ve EVER seen on Television. Ugh I’m so in love with this SHIP.
