In a world where characters (and fans) often question other characters who choose to introduce new children, one might be surprised to hear that Rick Grimes would bring another new life into The Walking Dead.
Despite all of the perils and horrors lurking around every corner, Rick actor Andrew Lincoln says having a new child with his new love Michonne fits the overall goals of Rick. In an exclusive interview with ComicBook.com, Lincoln spilled the details which will have the online shippers going wild.
"Oh, yeah. Without a doubt," Lincoln said of Rick and Michonne having a child. "I think the whole point is to start again and to restart and it's about the future, and it's obviously the next generation and, as far as we can tell, we're outnumbered undead to human a lot. It is about repopulating the world. I think that they make a terrific couple and I don't think he would hesitate. Also, maybe in a couple of episodes time, there may be a jump ahead in the curve and maybe setting themselves to that job at hand."
Of course, there is already one pregnant woman in town with Maggie Rhee being forced to face parenting without her husband Glenn courtesy of Negan. One would think that seeing the troubles she has already faced and still has before her might discourage Rick and Michonne from baby making but that would be admitting defeat to this apocalyptic world -- something Rick Grimes refuses to do.
However, the last bit of Lincoln's comments are interesting for fans of The Walking Dead comics. After Rick and Negan's heavyweight bout, there is a time jump of approximately two years in which Alexandria begins to thrive and the communities become more comfortable. Could Lincoln be teasing such an event of the AMC series following his Rick Grimes doing war with the Saviors?
