Walking Dead Season 6: Where’s Rick Grimes’ Constable Uniform?
Though The Walking Dead’s Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) was wary of calling Alexandria home, at the tail end of Season 5 he reluctantly accepted a position as constable (along with Michonne) and was responsible for making sure no walkers or other unwanted intruders wormed their way inside the idyllic community.
By the Season 5 finale however, Alexandria’s cracks were fully visible as Jessie’s (Alexandra Breckenridge) husband Pete lived up to his full porch-dick potential and killed Deanna Monroe’s (Tovah Feldshuh) husband Reg in cold blood and walkers made their way through the front gate. Let’s also not forget that Rick then killed Pete on Deanna’s orders just as Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Aaron (Ross Marquand) returned to Alexandria with Rick’s old pal Morgan Jones (Lennie James) in tow.
During his speech to the Alexandria residents in the finale Rick made it clear that things needed to change if they wanted to continue to survive, and judging by the first image of Rick from Season 6, things are different now.
Entertainment Weekly scored the first pic of Season 6 Rick, and right away we noticed some very crucial details. For starters, the leader of our core crew is no longer wearing the constable uniform Deanna gave him. While there’s a chance we’re reading too much into this, the lack of uniform seems to indicate a new way of thinking/operating within Alexandria. The uniform once represented order, but as we saw in the Season 5 finale, order is no more.
What’s more? Rick, who, for the most part, seems to be sticking to the clean-shaven look is literally at a crossroads as he stands at the intersection of Marshall and Redding. Speaking of our leader’s face, the bruises and bandages seem to indicate that Season 6, Episode 1 picks up not long after Rick’s brawl with Pete, but as EW notes those wounds might also be from a subsequent skirmish.
So many questions, so few answers thus far!
The Walking Dead Season 6 premieres this fall on AMC.
