Like Michonne, we can find beacons of light shining through this post-Rick Grimes version of The Walking Dead, but man oh man, we sure felt his absence.
Kicking off six (6) whole, entire, full years after Rick's presumed death, we find our remaining mains in much different spaces emotionally than when we left them: Daryl walked into the abyss of his man pain, Carol has embraced the change her love for Ezekiel and Henry has brought into her life and Michonne? Well, she's still having a hard time grappling with life without her love. Every time we wanted to go, "Six years? Still?" Danai Gurira's breathtaking display of pain, unrest and sadness shut us up. But it's not all bad. She still has her Judith, who is now 10 years old and a handful. Whether she's a pointless addition to a hunting trip, bringing in stray survivors or constantly reminding Michonne of the world that she and Rick fought for, this little one is going to be a big player here. But also…if the old Judith wanted to make a guest appearance, we would not be mad. Things we're also not mad at: RICK MFing GRIMES, JR. The King Is Here! The Prophecy Has Been Fulfilled. What is this water on our faces?! Rick has to see his new son in these movies. There can be no other outcome.
While Rick may have wanted to bring the communities together post-All Out War, the exact opposite has happened without his guidance. The communities don't keep in contact with each other -- do they even know Maggie ghosted Hilltop? -- and they've become rigid and distrustful of strangers. What happened in the past 6 years to turn them that way? Who hurt y'all? Literally, who hurt Michonne because we saw that scar on her back and it's time to SQUARE UP!
