    From DayDream Machine at TSDF (the hero we all deserve)

    - There's a time jump, Carl is fine, it's quiet and peaceful in Alexandria, people are cleaning up and rebuilding.

    - The main plot revolves around Rick and Daryl who are on a supply run. They meet Jesus who tricks them and steals their truck full of supplies. They catch up with him but the truck ends up sinking into a lake unintentionally. It's all quite fun, especially the banter between Daryl and Jesus. They take Jesus with them to Alexandria as a captive but he shows up in Rick's bedroom at the end of the episode, telling him they need to talk.

    - There's a subplot with Michonne and Spencer as well as Carl and Enid roaming through the woods. Not much happens during the Carl and Enid part. They find a walker Carl doesn't want to kill, but it isn't revealed who it is. Later, Michonne and Spencer find the same walker - lured into their direction by Carl - and it turns out to be a zombified Deanna. Spencer kills her and finds closure.

    - By the end of the episode, Rick and Michonne have sex, just like that. They hold hands, make out and then have sex and when Jesus arrives in Rick's bedroom they're naked in bed together.

    - Denise mentions that Tara and Heath are about to go on a 2 week supply run which makes me think they will be captured by Negan and Tara will be toast soon (taking Holly's place from the comics).
    Other nuggets:

    There's one scene with Maggie where she talks to Enid who isolates herself again from the rest of Alexandria. She asks her to get more involved.

    [re Richonne sex scene]
    The scene is quite sweet with Rick coming home from his rough day and Michonne comforting him and then one thing leads to another. It's played out decidedly understated and natural, like it's not a big deal for them.

    [re Richonne sex scene]
    They make out on the couch a bit and the scene ends before they take their clothes off, then cut to them lying in bed sleeping, enter Jesus, they wake up, jump out of the bed (still naked), point their weapons at him, end of episode. There are tiny hints of butt in the final shot, like the butts are just one inch out of frame, in case you're lusting for that.

    [re Richonne sex scene]
    It's initiated by a pack of mint drops. That's a followup to a scene from the beginning of the episode when there's some banter about missing toothpaste. Rick promises to get toothpaste during the supply run. The tooth paste ends up sinking with the truck, but he manages to bring Michonne the mint drops instead and that's how they 'accidentally' end up hand in hand while sitting next to each other on the couch. Then they look at each other lovingly, lean in for the kiss...

    [re Jesus and DayDream Machine's opinion of his portrayal]
    I like him, handsome and charming. The whole performance has a certain Jack Sparrow vibe, an artful dodger, but in a goofy manner.

    [re Jesus and a potential binocular scene]
    No binocular scene and Daryl ends up knocking Jesus out after he tricked them several times. Jesus saves Daryl from a walker though.

    [re time jump and Carl's recovery]
    I think there's no clear statement about that. Since Carl is up and running, maybe two weeks, maybe a little more.

    [re Richonne sex scene]
    Naturally falling into orbit is the right way to put it, but it definitely didn't happen over the jump. This is definitely their first time. It's not a dramatic thing for them, but they seem a little surprised when it happens.

    [re Jesus's skills]
    Not sure about that. I haven't seen any martial art skills yet. At one point Jesus and Daryl basically play tag and that's not what martial art fighters usually do. I can say for sure that he's an escape artist though.

    [re Carl knowing Spencer is running around]
    Yes, he does.

    [re Carl and Michonne]
    There's also an emotional scene with Michonne towards the end where she asks him why he did that and he says Deanna deserved to be put down by someone who loved her and he would do the same for Michonne.

    [re Richonne]
    As for the feverish Richonne debate, I think the episode does a good job to also convince the sceptics of this relationship. It might as well be titled 'Introducing the Grimes family'. It's bookended with family scenes. Between those the family members head out to have their own adventures and then they get back together after a hard day of 'work' to find some comfort in their home. Rick and Michonne already come across like a loving couple in the opening scene with the toothpaste banter. It's playful and natural.

    As for Jessie, well, I think she mostly appealed to Rick's protective instincts and rekindled his desire for a traditional family. Now that she's gone he's realized that he already has a family. It may not be traditional in a conservative way. His partner may not be white or a damsel in distress who needs to be taken care of, but it's a family that works and it's deeply rooted in mutual trust and understanding. That's the best kind of family, so it makes perfect sense to go all the way.​

    OMG, reading it all together like that. I am now back to not properly functioning. It is like they were reading all our hopes and dreams for Richonne and Michonne and Carl.
    Gimple I almost take back every bad thing I said about you.......almost.

    Thank You @Doctor Grimes

    You never even made it on the NO SPOILER WAGON and I love it.

    Yes you are alive but in an alternative universe where we get everything we ever wanted. I was wondering where you were, glad you made it over ;)

    I'm just imagining the reactions from all the TWD podcasters I listen to. A.Ron from Bald Move is gonna be pumped!

    And I love how so many people warmed up to Richonne last episode and were like "Do we think it could happen now?" and this episode is saying "YES. YES, IT FUCKING COULD HAPPEN. IT JUST FUCKING DID."

    Thank you SO MUCH @Doctor Grimes. Put all together like this, it may be my favorite episode yet. Not only the Richonne going CANON bit and CARCHONNE but all the lightheartedness! I'm in love with Jesus already and just cannot wait to see this all play out before us.

    Dreams do come true in the ZA after all.
