    I feel like what we will get will be amazing but I also feel like some are expecting serious sexcapades the whole episode or porn level raciness. I do think it's gonna be super hot but I also know it isn't going to be a long drawn out satisfy every shipper fantasy type scene(s?). This is where the spoiler debate comes up in my head. I kinda wish we didn't know because then there would be zero expectation.

    I have no doubt the episode will be really, really good.
    And good point about spoilers, it totally changes expectations within the fandom and not just with Richonne...with everything on the show. I'm just in too deep though, lol I can't go back to being spoiler free. I tried and lasted like one day :lol:

    I agree with you 100%. I know it's gonna be a very good episode, but I'm keeping my expectations in a low level as I don't want to get disappointed by it. I also want to keep spoiler free because everything that happens will be a surprise for me but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to. I'm too damn curious!
    Another unpopular opinion is I don't find Rick on sheriff's uniform attractive at all!! I never really did and I was very happy when he got rid of it. Actually, I only started to find Rick attractive in season 4.

    I agree about the hype. I'm excited about it but I'm not going in expecting too much though. You know with this show, there's a ton of room for disappointment. Would I like a ton of stuff to happen, my dreams and wishlist to come true? Heck yeah, but I'm keeping my expectations low though.

    I'll add my unpopular opinion about Rick's uniform. I'm not a fan of it either. Like someone said, it reminds me of Barney Fife/Mayberry. And I know how I'm always going on about how Rick's droopy droop jeans don't show off his ass. Well, those uniform pants run a close second. :sasha: :lol:

    As much as I joke about the sex, what is most important to me is the emotional aspect of their intimacy. So, even if we got a relatively bland sex scene (this is AMC, afterall), as long as it was the result of a good scene with Rick and Michonne about something meaningful, I will be happy. What I think I want more than anything is some additional information about Michonne's past that she is sharing with Rick either for the first time, or because she has something important to say about it or elaborate on (even if Rick knows the basics already). But, I can understand how people feel that expectations for this episode have been raised to the point that what we actually get could be disappointing.

    Unpopular Opinion.

    Lori is miles above a better written character than ANY of the new women introduced seasons 4 and beyond.

    Lori was well written. At first I thought she wasn't because she is enigmatic, you never really know her but I think that's kind of who she is at the time in the story we meet her. I'm not even sure she knows who she is and she's all over the place. She was interesting and well played by SWC. Too bad she had no real redeeming qualities. She was a friend to Carol and loved her son but she really had no value to the group and kind of coasted by on being Rick's wife.

    I think the best women introduced since season 4 are Deanna and Denise.

    My unpopular opinion, I HATE Lori more than Negan too lol...... As much horrible things that Negan has done even he wouldn't have thought his own child should be dead. (I arrived to this notion because he's trying to conceive a baby). I didn't like Lori from the beginning of TWD because I have no use for weak characters who need a man in charge (hence why I love Michonne, who is strong and independent) but when Lori actually said, "maybe it's better this way..." when Carl was about to die in S2 from the gun shot and Rick said, "you can't mean that?!?" ....What mother or parent in this world would wish death on their child?? We are talking about a gunshot that he could have easily came back from, not a terminal cancer patient who spent months in pain. That is where Lori and Michonne are different because Michonne has a "we don't give up" mentality, whereas, Lori was a weak b**ch and a complete waste of space. And people wonder why I was so happy when she finally died lol and yes I laughed, which I have no shame in that. The kids, TF, and Rick are all better and happier without her.

    Another difference, Negan is an evil a*shole and doesn't put on many faces. What you see is what you get. Jessie was stupid and annoying, she is number 2 on my hate list but Lori purposefully manipulated Rick and Shane. She ran to Rick and said Shane should die, THEN she is running to Shane telling him to not leave the group, THEN she runs to Rick to complain about Shane, THEN she gets angry and slaps at Rick when he says he killed Shane in self defense. She did nothing to help TF, complained all the time and used Glenn like he was her errand boy. I could go on and on but I will visit the Richonne positivity thread to calm my hate fire LOL I hate her so much :laugh:

    I have way more unpopular opinions about twd fandom than the show, but on topic

    -I never had a problem with Beth (she was just there) until I became engross with fandom. In hindsight, there have been worse characters on twd than her.

    -Gleggie was meh.

    -I don't want Carol to hook up with anyone, hopefully she'll hop her ass on a boat and go away forever. (probably not an unpop. opinion here)

    -I liked Dawn, I liked the idea of Grady. Just wrong season. Dawn should have been introduced after Negan and with a couple of tweaks here and there to make her and Grady more threatening, she could have been the final villain in the walking dead series.

    -I lowkey want Mazzara to come back and reign havoc even if it means destroying Richonne. (My mood today)

    -Michonne's 7A arc just like her season 5 arc with her sword lacked depth.

    -Jesus is a dud

    I don't think Spencer was that attractive. I would put him behind many other men in the cast.

    In the beginning, he was sort of okay looking. As time went on, I guess the newness just wore off because he started looking average.
