The Walking Dead

In Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead, Michonne (Danai Gurira) finally gets laid by Rick (Andrew Lincoln).

Here's how the episode went down:

Huffington Post -- Michonne has an emotional day where she and Spencer come across a zombified Deanna and finally put her to rest. Rick and Michonne eventually end up on the couch together and he presents her with some mints he scavenged. (She asked him for spearmint toothpaste earlier.)

One thing leads to another, and they start kissing. (Whaaaaattt!) Yada yada yada and the pair wind up naked in bed together, only to be woken later by Jesus, who breaks in the room and tells Rick they need to talk.

The Huffington Post spoke with Gurira about the anti-climactic sex scene. She said the moment was "great for the characters" and just "made a lot of sense." She must mean ratings wise.

Richonne is finally out there. Is this a big weight off your shoulders?

Oh God, yes! Because people come at me. They come at me hard about this. “Why aren’t they together!” And people I don't even expect. With old friends who I didn't think watched the show, and all of a sudden they have me in the corner about Rick and Michonne, and I have to lead them, you know, fan them off with, "Oh, they're just friends. That’s an important connection." Meanwhile, we shot that scene months ago. Read more.

    In the comic book Michonne ended up with Morgan. It'll be interesting to see where they take this storyline since all of Rick exes ends up dying.

  • hotntot95

    These writers know exactly how to keep you interested..cause my eyes didn't leave the screen..

  • Ni Ni

    I hope they don't kill her off now that her and rick done screwed. I don't like the way they had her to show her body like that. It was no frontal or anything but still the kids are watching. We can use our imagination.

  • 1/8

    As one person put it, "they had premarital sex and then Jesus walked in!" ?

  • SunnyChi

    Finally! They definetly have an interesting chemistry. I always wondered why them hooking up wasn't explored.

  • https://www.wattpad.com/user/aleonhart Annie Leonhart

    Networks can care less if kids are watching. It's almost expected that shows should be as explicit as possible, some folks expect a sex scene. Read enough fan forums to know. ? The perves.

  • Hugga Bunch

    Totally adore how Michonne takes care of Ricks kids, she wants a family again, and she keeps Rick together. So why not?
    Let Em live.

  • Xsjado

    Bout time. Lol.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I don't watch TWD. Back to the bench I go.

  • Yoni

    I was totally surprised!

  • nicelyput32

    I heard this was a good show but I haven't been able to get past the first 15 mins of Season 1, episode 1.

  • Yoni

    I saw a meme that said this was "The Walking Dead's tribute to Black History Month".....LOL

  • Yoni

    I've never even seen Season 1, episode 1.

  • Hill Candy

    This was so unexpected. I always assume Carol and Darryl would hook up. Still not too late. I did not get Rick/Darryl leaving car behind, when one or other could had drove it and follow

  • nicelyput32

    It's on Netflix, if you're interested.

  • rayne215

    Im surprised they didnt pit Morgan with Michonne like the comic. but im not mad at this. Gotta get one off, even in a zombie Apocalypse

  • MzFutureLCSW

    That's what I was thinking when I first read it........like, "What?"
    Then I realized they meant the Mexican Jesus.

  • Yoni

    I'm not. I only watch what comes on Sunday's. That's it. I won't even watch the re-runs. LOL

  • Yoni

    New post - they say folks lyin about the C word

  • 1/8

    Comedy gold!

  • IAmLegend

    I've been waiting for Carol and Darryl to hookup too. The showrunners hinted that Richonne was gonna happen a couple of seasons ago. I just didn't expect it to happen right now.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    I MISSED THIS PART! I SHOULD'VE KNOWN WITH THEM DAPPING UP IN THE FIRST 3 MINUTES....MICHONNE PLAYING STEPMAMA TO CARL ALL THIS TIME...CHRIS HARDWICK WAS LIKE A KID IN A CANDY STORE...

    DAMN RICK! YOU'RE OLD BEAU JUST GOT OFFED LAST WEEK...I GUESS IN END TIMES IT DON'T REALLY MATTER.....

  • Yardgirl

    OMG!! I posted the exact thing a few weeks ago!! I could not get past the first 15 mins. I feel like I am missing out on something but that's OK, carry on fans, carry on...lol

  • IAmLegend

    Well in the comic, Jesus is gay. If the writers keep it that way in the series, I wonder how the Christian crowd will react lol.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    YOU'RE MISSING OUT!

  • whitty hutton

    I'on like it...somebody's gonna die and it won't be Rick! ??

  • side_i

    I was soooooo happy she got w/ Rick, he one sessy ass sprite man. I was thinking it would've been Darryl but she's a queen b & she's the only one that can keep Rick in check.

  • LeeSeeCee

    The guy that does that Talking Dead show said it was like it was so good they saw Jesus after.. Or something to that effect, lol..

  • 1/8

    Maybe if they had seen Jesus first, they would have waited until they were married. ?

  • 1/8

    I'm not familiar with this show or the comic book series, but this article has piqued my interest.

  • Guest who

    What Morgan? She has zero chemistry with Morgan on the show. Well I hope they don't follow the comic books then! Rick Grimes is everything I would follow him off a cliff! He's a very strong leader to te group, he's like their president.

  • side_i

    The show isn't even rated for kids

  • Jackie Byrd

    I loved that scene and especially at the end when "Jesus" woke them up. both of them jumped up ready to attack. that was awesome. cant' wait for next week. but you are right rampage jackson, his exes do end up dying. but hopefully that won't happen with michonne.

  • hotntot95

    Morgan sho do get on my nerves letting errybody live with that damn stick

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I tried to watch it but everytime I hear those sounds I hide behind the phone. Me and zombies don't mesh...

  • CaliYoruba

    in the comics, Carol was very unstable. Tyreese and her were a couple then they broke up after he cheated with Andrea. Then Carol tried to hook up with Lori but got denied LOL

  • hotntot95

    Chile ain't NOTHING godly about this show...blood and guts, zombies on kill mode. Killin kids, old folk..but I Jus can't stop watching?

  • Ms. Damn Solo

    Bout time Rick got a lil something but a shower would have been required from both parties beforehand, you know to wrench off all the walker juice.

  • Yoni

    On what? I watch it on Sunday's. I just am not that interested in going back to the beginning.

  • 1/8

    Is this a cable series?

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    UNDERSTANDABLE...I HATE NOT KNOWING THE PARTS I MISSED. IT WAS MORE RAW IN THE BEGINNING IMO.

  • Ms. Damn Solo

    At this point I'm thinking Darryl is a virgin, dang! Yes, I was upset that they left the car behind and wasted so much time celebrating when they got the truck back. They just will not learn to their lesson about leaving mofo's alive, that crap always come back to haunt them. That was a rookie move.

  • Ms. Damn Solo

    Dang, that's twisted. I'm surprised more hook ups don't happen between everybody.

  • Ms. Damn Solo

    Carl and Edin are the new Maggie and Glen.

  • Yoni

    I only started watching because an ex got me on to it. Other than that, I would leave it on RHOP. LOL

  • Yoni

    He's funny. I like him. LOL

  • whitty hutton

    Met him in person at the Krog Street Market here in Atlanta...stopped dead in my tracks...couldn't move or stop staring into his gawjus clear blue eyes. All I could do for the first few seconds was point n say, "That's Rick Grimes!" A true fan moment.

  • IAmLegend

    I'm ready for Maggie or Glen to die. Preferably both.

  • IAmLegend

    Yea on AMC. This is Season 6.

  • Hill Candy

    Darryl maybe. I know I want him to shower.

  • hotntot95

    Yes..It's on AMC...I don't think u can get this channel without cable..

  • 1/8

    No wonder I've never heard of it. I'm too cheap to pay for cable. I had it years ago and found myself always watching channels I could get for free.

  • hotntot95

    U good. U ain't missing nothing, saving u alot of money...I'm constantly calling about my bill and why it's higher than my electric bill...smh

  • CaliYoruba

    yeah al ot of them are interracial too but I feel like the networks just wont show the black men with white women.

  • 1/8

    Sometimes, I miss CNN and C-Span, but that's about it. I used to like the history channel, but when they started playing reality TV shows, I called my cable provider and cancelled my service.

  • Guest who

    I don't fan out with anybody and I've seen celebrities out and about I just look and keep moving. But with Rick Grimes I would f reak out!! He's so awesome and gorgeous!

  • Guest who

    About time they both got some! I bet it was rough, loud , messy, angry s ex the best kind lol

  • Guest who

    Yea Darryl has not had any not even a kiss from anybody thats weird.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    They didn't show anything graphic. People are already angry that they put them together.

  • rampage jackson

    He irks me too with that. In general I have a problem with how not one black male character isnt an alpha male. Tyrese afraid of guns and wouldn't kill the cannibal guy who had threatened to kill Judith, the stupid Rev. who's a coward, Bob was too laid back, tdogg was a follower. Morgan has the most potential but they turned him into all lives matter poster boy.

  • hotntot95

    This!!! Michonne got the biggest ballz of all the black men...

  • Luv Pitties

    I am disappointed at this "Rickshonne" nonsense, I liked their relationship before, this was just something done to cave in to fan pressure.

  • S. Williams

    he had the hand on the booty when they were sleeping (just finished watching) YEEEEESSSS!!!!! lol

  • S. Williams

    my stepmom said "ok he gotta die! I'm not for killing the brother but him and the priest gotta go" lmfao

  • S. Williams

    and Sasha

  • S. Williams

    done at All Lives Matter lmfao look, he killed when it came time to it. I honestly think he's afraid of going crazy again bc he was killing everybody!!! but honestly in real life....don't black women be like "look, I got this" lol

  • S. Williams

    thank you! lol TV-MA

  • S. Williams

    kids should not be watching something that is TV-MA. parents need to do better if so

  • Luv Pitties

    Because his teeth look brown and rotten, whereas surprisingly everyone else's does not.

  • S. Williams

    I been ready for the hookup since she first held that baby lol when he was lusting after that stupid white lady who got killed with her sons (rightfully so) I was PISSED! like he better not get with that YT woman

  • hotntot95

    Yeah...they so weak..that world ain't for the soft hearted, u gotta be gutta to survive

  • Luv Pitties

    Why?

  • hotntot95

    I believe it's getting close to the end so they are about kill off all the favorites...

  • http://worldstarhiphop.com/ The Dutchess

    On most shows that have a few black cast members a conscious effort is made not to make the black males too masculine They want to make them more palatable to white America

  • ATL White Guy

    If the Zombie apocalypse starts tomorrow, I'd want these people at a minimum to help me survive: 1. Michonne (nothing sexier then a strong black woman with a sword); then 2. Darryl (he so dang resourceful).

  • S. Williams

    he was already raised in the backwoods of hell so it's not like he had any dental coverage

  • S. Williams

    maaaaaan not eem gay but I was like damn I would LOVE to be in the middle of that. her naked with a sword and him with a gun. *finds pocket knife and strips* let's do this lmfao

  • S. Williams

    they all have the zombie disease anyway so why lol

  • http://worldstarhiphop.com/ The Dutchess

    Does anyone else but me hate her dreads on the show? It's hot as balls in Atlanta in ur walking around with these filthy unkempt dreads? I like her short hair it looks great on her

  • Luv Pitties

    He looks like he's been chewing 'backy since he was born

  • S. Williams

    done with you LMFAO

  • Luv Pitties

    That priest really does have to go, I've been calling for his head since they were all in his church.

  • Luv Pitties

    Lol and his hair, I've been wanting someone to throw a bar of soap or make him go wash that in the nearby river. It just seems
    So oily and stiff; and there's no excuse
    because once they all settled in Alexandria his still looked that way.?

  • Stan4NoOne

    About time he bit into that chocolate beauty.

  • Satin Panther

    Damn I have a feeling they are only going to let the Richonne relationship last but so long before they kill her off! They said that one of the popular main characters of the show is going to die on the season finale when Neagan is introduced.

  • Cunningham ?

    This is weird, it was not suppose to happen like this, noooo!
