15. “HEARTS STILL BEATING” (7X08)
While Rick was away scavenging with Aaron, all hell broke loose back at home. He goes to Morgan’s cell to find quiet amongst the chaos. Michonne approaches him, and tells him that she too went out that day, and that she realized something important: She didn’t want to go it alone: “That’s why we have to fight – not for us, but for Judith, for Carl, for Alexandria, for the Hilltop – for all of us. We can fight them, Rick. We can find a way to beat them. We can do this. But… But… Only if… we do this.”
Before this moment, Rick had invited Michonne to go with him. Not because he needed her help on that particular excursion; Rick wanted to know if she was still with him. In this scene, though the hug is short lived, she tells him without question that she is, and that she can’t go it alone without him.
