    I honestly believe someone at AMC told him to make Richonne happen as soon as NWO ends. Why ? Fuck knows why. Ratings most likely. Gimple usually likes to drag things out a little bit too long before the big 'thing' happens. Here it's like he didn't even try lol

    Yeah it was awful. Everything that happened after No Way Out is important and they skipped it.

Richonne is perfection and nothing can taint that for me . How it happened didn't scar that it happened. I read that for some the process tainted the product-- not for me.

    Replace Richonne with any other long awaited ship and those die hard supporters may have the same spirit of acceptance that I do. Just saying....
    I am looking forward to that drink! :)
    I understand what you're saying. Looking forward to Richonne and then getting it is a great feeling, oh yes. And I love that the way they did it was good for you. I wish I were the same way.
    But that time jump is definitely one big ol' imperfection. :) I hope that's what they end up lucilling. And we get our time back.
    I wouldn't like it for any of my other ships either.
    I'm just dang picky. :)

    I'm not a fan of the time jump either because it skipped over so much, but I love Richonne. That will never change. If anything, I did like the surprise of it. I know a good handful here were speculating on 6B canon, but I never thought it was a possibility. I always thought 7A. So waking up that morning and reading the spoiler about it felt pretty damn good.

    > Here's an organic friendship/familial bond between two bad-ass members of "Team Family".
    > During said friendship/familial bond there were only extremely subtle/basically non-existent romantic development between the two.
    > Rick falls crazy head over heels for some abused blonde woman.
    > Rick (ON SCREEN) acknowledges that he's proud of said blonde woman for making adjustments to become stronger.
    > Rick RARELY (before 610 and beyond) acknowledged Michonne's strengths and what she means to him.
    > Blonde woman dies and IMMEDIATELY next episode we aren't shown ANY build up to romantic aspect of Richonne. They just go for it.
    > Michonne is made to look like the 2nd choice. I don't care if she isn't, the way it was presented was garbage.

    I wasn't asking for much with Richonne. All I wanted was romantic development added onto their already super developed familial/friendship. 610 and 611 COULD have been just that. 610-611 COULD have established:

    > Rick's "feelings" for blondie.
    > Michonne's feelings about Rick's feelings for blondie.
    > Rick and Michonne for their parts in Carl's injury.
    > Michonne reassuring Rick that Carl will live but even if he didn't he could go on, because SHE did. (ANDRE COULD HAVE BEEN MENTIONED)
    > Rick openly acknowledging Michonne and all she has done for him and what they have and will go through.
    > Gradually opening of romantic feelings and exchange (but not without a little turbulence).

    THIS IS WHAT RICHONNE SHOULD HAVE BEEN.

    What we got was a poorly placed episode and we were left to connect the dots of point A to point B and then we're thrust into an ending scene where it looks like two teenagers who were horny. We don't know how they got here and to this point, we just know that they got here and it felt incredibly cheap and DARE I SAY, "FORCED".

    The time-jump ruined what was needed for Richonne to organically make the switch from friendship to romance. The time-jump ruined EVERYTHING for me.


    It is what it is, but this is on a long list of things that S6 did wrong.

    Don't get me wrong, I love that Rick and Michonne are together but I feel like it was rushed and used for a "shock value" scene with Jesus.
    I thought they should have left it at the hand hold and then given it another episode or two with at least a few brief flirty/meaningful moments before hopping into bed. I did like Carl's reaction though and I'm glad they are a family now.

    I love Richonne but....the timing kinda killed the moment for me too. This is why I will always be suspicious of Rick's true feelings and his motives for hooking up with her. Let's be real Michonne has loved Rick for awhile. Rick knows it. And if the episode where she kills Ron to save him and joins him outside to kill walkers (certain suicide )didn't give him a clue then I mean Rick is pretty self absorbed.

    Rick needs Michonne. It's not the other way around. I need proof.

    I just don't see the ROI for Michonne.

    I have posted my misgivings before about how quickly Richonne happened after 3 seasons of build up and agree they screwed up some important aspects leading up to them going canon, but I am under the impression that TPTB just do not know how to do romance. After Season Sex it seems it is all or nothing.

    I still love Richonne and hope that future story lines make up for what was lacking in the beginning.

    I was skeptical when I saw this thread and I scrolled through it before I chose to add my two cents. And I trust the threadstarter lol

    First and foremost, thank you all for being respectful in your responses. I am a diehard Richonne fan but I totally agree it was handled rather haphazardly. It DOES seem to be the way of the show. If I hadn't watch them completely rush or sloppily write other plotlines, I'd have been angrier. I was genuinely surprised it happened right after 9 despite the fact that its pretty much how it happened in the comics but even that isn't a GREAT excuse because at least in the comics Rick sorta addressed it; it wasn't some deep dark secret, the Jessie relationship. Rick wasn't kissing one girl one minute then giving heart eyes to Michonne the very next.

    Honestly DG and AL have too much chemistry and it just felt off when those scenes were juxtaposed during the same timespace if that makes sense.


    IA with some of my fellow shippers that no amount of time would have been ok for SOME since if you never saw them that way nothing could change your perspective. And I also agree that some are waiting for Rick to "prove" in some way or fashion that he is good enough for Michonne. Hmmm... that is valid. I've struggled myself with Rick being as strong as Michonne sometimes but part of me have accepted that he's emotionally broken and that is one of his flaws. I'm not in denial RG is flawed and DG is written as incredibly capable and less flawed and selfless for that matter.

    There's no doubt in my mind Rick loves her but I am looking forward to him really catching up to her emotional growth.

    I'm off on a tangent but I agree the time skip was whack. I didn't like Jessick but damn.

    Watching them evolve, flirt for a bit, focus on Carl and really exploring them as a family unit even more so would have been much more fulfilling. I wont say it ruined them for me. I've ALWAYS legit said their season is 7 when that relationship is tested which is why they hurried it so much.

    I would have preferred to see the woman Michonne too and being pursued would have been the perfect time for that especially as the last episodes could have benefited from showing the beauty of the warrior and the desirable woman.

    Unfortunately shows written by a majority of men, and Gimple being a glutton for panels destroyed what could have been. I think they're going to backtrack def, but its a shame they already butchered the lead up. Their foundation was built perfectly, their love and friendship great. The transition to romantic lovers.... not so great. This shipper has her complaints, certainly. Its something you either can move on from or not. And maybe now they dont compute for you (anyone still on the fence) but theres seasons that still have the possibility to convert you.

    But dammit I enjoyed it.
