    Valentine’s Day came a week late to “The Walking Dead.” Fans have watched Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) develop a strong friendship over the past four seasons, but the possibility always existed that they could become more than friends. That possibility became a reality in tonight’s episode — set two months after the death of Rick’s former flame Jessie (Alexandra Breckenridge), the loss of Carl’s (Chandler Riggs) eye and the rebuilding of Alexandria as a fierce walker-fighting community.

    Variety spoke with Michonne herself, Danai Gurira, about why this was the right time to take the next step with Rick, what a full-fledged Richonne relationship might look like, closing the set for that final scene and welcoming back Tovah Feldshuh (Deanna) for a moving goodbye.

We had chats about the idea of [Rick and Michonne’s] intimacy and their relationship before anything was happening — what it is and what it could be.
