Part of the appeal of The Walking Dead is that it still finds ways to surprise viewers even six seasons in. Most of the surprises involve death, destruction, and/or explosions, but there are few things more surprising than the fact that some of the survivors feel such a pull to be together romantically that even the zombie apocalypse and all the poor hygiene that has come along with it haven’t been enough to keep them apart. Rick and Michonne have had sparks flying between them since meeting in Season 3, and the two finally getting together in Season 6 to consummate their relationship might be the most earned romance of the entire series. In honor of the new status quo of Richonne, here is a look back at 12 moments The Walking Dead totally used to set up Rick and Michonne's eventual coupling.

Michonne arrives
That Time Rick And Michonne Met
Episode 6 of Season 3 saw the first meeting between Rick and Michonne. Without any dialogue or communication beyond some intense gazing, they managed to establish a foundation for one of the most organic relationships of the show. She was the first new single and age-appropriate woman that he met after Lori’s death, and she was connected to Rick’s children immediately thanks to her basket of baby supplies. The show has relied on these two tenets to craft the Rick/Michonne romance over the years since. Rick certainly must have sensed the chemistry to have spotted Michonne staggering toward the fence from way across the prison yard.
