Should The Ricktator get a new special lady friend?
Rick Grimes's wife Lori had an emotional passing on The Walking Dead Season 3, but let’s be honest — she wasn't exactly the most supportive spouse. She slept with her husband's best friend, Shane — not too long after believing Rick was dead — and even when she reunited with Rick she went back to her patronizing, manipulative Lady Macbeth ways.
But that doesn't mean actor Andrew Lincoln thinks Rick is ready to move on with a new romance in Season 4. “I think that there has to be some kind of mourning time,” Andy told TVLine earlier in May at the start of Season 4 production. “I don’t think he’s able to engage at all on that level at the moment. I wouldn’t rule it out though.” He laughed and added, “I think Sarah Wayne Callies [Lori] would be phoning me deeply upset if anything like that would be happening in Season 4.”
Oh, like she has any right to judge! We've been told there will be a passage of time of more than three months (but less than a year) from the Season 3 finale to Season 4, so it's not like no time has passed since Lori died. Did Lori and Shane even wait that long?
What do you think? New love interest for Rick? Back when we were talking about a new love interest for Daryl, the obvious answer was Carol, but Rick and Daryl do have a beautiful bromance...
