    You and I fell in love in different ways, and it kept me going. And then you were gone, too,” Rick tells Michonne about his dreams from the first episode. “I couldn’t see your face anymore, just like I couldn’t see Carl’s. I can’t live without you. Without you, I die. And I figured out how to do that. I know how to be dead and live now,” he says.

    “You can’t just come back here, make me come alive again if I don’t know if I won’t lose you again. What if I lose you and I can’t figure out how to die all over again?” he adds.

    Danai Gurira, who also wrote the episode, asserted that this was not a typical love scene, but rather a character-driven moment of deep significance. “We’re proposing a love story. So at some point, they have to make love. It’s really that simple,” Gurira said during an interview with EW.

    I think the goal for that scene in my head was that it shall not be a typical love scene. It shall not be, ‘Oh, when they copulate and it’s so lovely’ — it shall not be that. It needed to have a character moment in it that allowed for something to shift. Even if the audience doesn’t fully get what it is,” she added.

    Series co-creator and showrunner Scott M. Gimple also weighed in on the significance of the moment. “It’s very much part of the story, and there’s a whole story to that sex scene. It isn’t just like them going at it. There’s an arc to the sex scene story being told there. And with these characters in that episode, it isn’t until they’re put in danger and have to fight beside one another that they click that they are suddenly just one person,” he said.

    And then at the end of that physicality of surviving together, it leads to a different kind of physicality of them truly getting together and truly touching one another,'” he added.

    With the release of this latest episode, viewers were treated to a rollercoaster of emotions including some thrilling action sequences to tender moments of intimacy. New episodes of ‘The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live premiere every Sunday on AMC and AMC+.
