    Um... did anyone notice that Rick and Michonne are mimicking the picture of the ducks on the wall making their nest/bed.

    Yeah, ducks and birds are all over Rick and Michonne's house. I assume it's just representative of their bond. Birds typically mate for life. Birds are natural caregivers. Birds like to make "nests" -- and right there Rick is even working on rebuilding their nest.

    I wonder if they will find a Mattress Firm to get new beds.

    I said last season they were the ducks. Because the other pictures by his dresser had 5 birds...Rick, Michonne, Carl, Judith, and one more!! LMAO!!

    Ok, I'm projecting my wants for a baby Richonne, but I really believe those pictures had meaning from the get go.

    P.S. there is also a tiny sword on the dresser, but you didn't hear that from me!

    I never put anything past SG since that poster on the wall declaring it's a thang. Also reminds me of that mini van that Michonne was hiding behind when Merle took Maggie and Glenn that had a stick family of 5 decal on the back of it. Hmm.

    Me, too. I was thinking they could just find another mattress store once everything settles down because, I mean, let's be honest, who was looting a mattress store during the ZA? So they should be able to find some, but, yeah, I'd get me a top of the line Stearns and Foster or a Sealy or a Tempur-pedic mattress or maybe even an adjustable bed for sure, lol!

    I noticed the nesting birds during the show. I definitely thought that was planned and was appropriate. Rick is feeling really anxious about his relationship and himself. Michonne has been his #1 supporter since the prison fell. Michonne doesn't need to follow Rick, she is an alpha in her own right. But she lets Rick lead because she knows he needs that to function. Terrible analogy but Rick is like a sheep dog, he needs a herd to take care of and without one he is purposeless and depressed. He doesn't feel good about himself. The last time he lost his flock (i.e. the prison fell). Michonne was the one that put him back together by choosing to follow him.

    He cant be the alpha protector and provider that he is at heart so all he can do to take care of her right now its to try to make a comfortable bed/nest for them. Its his little way of still feeling like a provider. It reminds me of season 1 & 2 Rick. He so desperately wanted to provide safety and the basics for Lori and Carl and he was never able to do that for Lori. So this whole experience of having a safe place and then having it be dangerous is probably forcing him to re-experience a lot of the desperation that he felt back in the beginning. Hence the thoughts of Shane and Lori.

    Okay, so the reminder of the 5-family decal and the mention of the picture of 5 ducks really makes me think Gimple wants Rick and Michonne to have a baby together. There have been a lot of other things that we've discussed here (and I can't remember any of them) but the latest is also AL calling Michonne "Key" in an interview and later saying Rick choosing to be Judith 's father is "very very key". I just have the sense that it will become important for Rick to have a biological child with the woman he loves. I know there's a thread for that.
