Fans of The Walking Dead went crazy during the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2013 on July 18 when an audience member brought up the possibility of a Rick/Michonne romance. With both of their respective partners gone (RIP, Lori and Andrea) it seems like a romance between these two damaged people isn’t entirely out of the question.

When the idea of the relationship was posed to Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) he joked, “We’re playing footsie.”

And it looks like Andy wasn’t the only one down for a lovefest with Michonne either. Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) playfully posed his own Michonne scenario, noting, “Michonne and Daryl could get together. Maybe we'll ask Rick to join us.”

Still, seeing as Rick will be busy farming (ugh) at least at the start of the season, it seems like romance isn't exactly on his mind just yet. 

Either way we know our girl Michonne will be really busy this season, given the fact that she’s focused on taking down The Governor. Do you think Michonne is ready for romance, or should she just focus on avenging Andrea’s death?

The Walking Dead Season 4 premieres this Sunday, October 13, at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
