When it was teased that Rick and Michonne might be getting together, there were mixed reactions. Some loved the idea, while others were not so sure. Now that they have been together awhile, the couple has a lot of fans. It was previously explained that there are a lot of reasons to love “Richonne.” They do make an ideal match with certain similarities, yet their differences balance each other out.
TV Guide listed the top TV couples and “Richonne” made the list along with Randall and Beth from This Is Us, Vincent and Abby from The Deuce, and Jon and Daenerys from Game Of Thrones. Honorable mentions included Riverdale‘s Archie and Veronica, How To Get Away With Murder‘s Connor and Oliver, Rob and Sharon from Amazon’s Catastrophe, and The Americans‘ Philip and Elizabeth.
Actor Andrew Lincoln explained what makes them work so well together in the zombie apocalypse. He said that Rick and Michonne see hope for the future when they are together. In a world of extreme brutality, they manage to hold each other up.
The Walking Dead actor added that Michonne is responsible for bringing back Rick Grimes from a place of darkness. He was in the worst place possible since the death of Lori Grimes (Sarah Wayne Callies.) She “breathed fire” and instilled the fight back into Rick. In a sense, he got his life back because of Michonne.
Not only does Michonne care for Rick on The Walking Dead, but for his children as well. She has a close connection with Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs). She has also become a mother figure to baby Judith.
