    The TIME JUMP That KILLED Richonne.

    I halfheartedly enjoy Richonne now. It's here to stay and I can appreciate the cuteness of the relationship, but I'm over it before it began. That ill-timed timejump between 609 and 610 ruined Richonne for me forever. How? Well...

    > 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.

    Yup.
    I was so excited for Richonne. And then....suddenly they skipped over everything they should have done to get there and just dumped them together.
    They could have done so much better.
    That time jump ruined a lot of things, actually. :(

    It was just odd timing for me. We see Michonne and Rick as best friends and then BOOM SEXY TIMES. Like he never ran and hugged her when she was missing or searched her out when he had not seen her for a while. Those are the things that we should have seen but Gimple fucked up again.

    It seemed to come out of nowhere for me. Timing was all wrong. I couldn't "feel" it. Didn't seem natural. They could've done it better, that's for sure. Even Carl's laid-back-it's-cool attitude came across as "off" to me.

    Holy shit! Did I wake up on another planet?

    Lol I'm not trying to be snarky right now but I'm genuinely curious because this is literally the first time I seen a richonner take issue with the canon being handled.


    This thread has to be a dream.....

    I've said it before. These writers half ass everything when it comes to Michonne, even her romance. They're still the only couple on the show I give a damn about though.

    I think in this case (and the shitty ass cliffhanger) we can all unite and agree that it was a horrible, horrible writing decision

    I don't know. I'll believe when I see it tomorrow morning when I finally fall asleep and wake up again. I'm just too shocked right now.
