The Walking Dead fans who can’t get enough of Rick Grimes will get to see a whole more of him very soon. According to a recent report, Andrew Lincoln is going to bare his butt during tonight’s episode (“Remember”). Before you read on, be aware that major spoilers are ahead.
The Spoiling Dead Fans recently shared a very lengthy list of juicy Walking Dead spoilers, and it looks like the ladies (and a few fellas) have a lot to look forward to now that the survivors are chilling out in the Alexandria Safe-Zone. Viewers will have to say a sad goodbye to Rick Grimes’ grimy Grizzly Adams beard, but they’ll also get to say hello to his butt after he takes the first hot shower that he’s had in a very long time.
Rick Grimes’ admirers can thank Andrew Lincoln for fighting for his right to appear without pants. During a 2013 interview with Zap2it, he revealed that he’s wanted to do a butt shot on The Walking Dead for quite some time now. He seems rather proud of his posterior.
“There have been a couple of scenes where I got my top off this season,” Lincoln said. “I keep trying to drop my pants, but no one wants it. Maybe because I’ve turned 40.”
The Walking Dead shower scene won’t be the first time Andrew Lincoln has appeared in the buff. According to RadarOnline, the actor showed off a little bit of everything in This Life, a 1997 British TV series. He’s one of the few big male stars who can boast about being brave enough to go full frontal. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Jamie Dornan doesn’t even show off his goods in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
Norman Reedus won’t be getting naked in the shower during tonight’s episode of The Walking Dead, but his fans can see him stripping down and getting wet in Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. Caryl shippers will also freak out about a shower-related moment that takes place during “Remember” — Carol Peletier will tell Daryl Dixon that he better bathe before she decides to hose him down.
Access to a shower won’t make Caryl’s relationship evolve, but Rick Grimes’ scruff might help him score a new admirer. According to the Spoiling Dead Fans, he’ll get a haircut from a pretty Alexandria Safe-Zone resident named Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge). There’s just one tiny problem — she has a husband. Carl might also have a crush on an ASZ girl who climbs over the community fence. He tries to follow her, and of course trouble follows him.
Walking Dead fans will be interested to find out that the ASZ leader is actually a woman named Deanna, and there’s a boy who keeps a walker chained to a tree (Lizzie 2.0, anyone?). The members of Rick Grimes’ group will all be given jobs to do — Rick and Michonne will be in charge of security; Tara and Glenn will help search for supplies; and Carol will help feed the elderly. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Daryl Dixon won’t be given a job to do, so it sounds like he might revert back to his loner ways now that he’s joined a more “civilized” society.
The Walking Dead airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on AMC. Are you looking forward to seeing Rick Grimes’ get de-grimed?
