THE WALKING DEAD: THE ONES WHO LIVE Trailer Brings Back a Ruthless Rick Grimes

Our time has arrived, Richonne fans! Over five years (in our time) after we witness Michonne break down in tears as she watched Rick’s “death,” we will finally get to witness their journey to find each other. The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live will debut on February 25 and it cannot get here soon enough. After a few very brief clips that tease Rick and Michonne’s stories, the first full trailer for The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live is on the internet and all of us are on the floor. 

This trailer is excellent. So, so excellent. It essentially dispels the ongoing theory that Rick ended up with amnesia after his accident, and that’s why he didn’t come back to Alexandria. That would be an incredibly difficult task because the CRM is well-fortified, massive, and a force to be reckoned with. We see how massive the organization is in The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live trailer. Rick asserts that his WIFE (!!!), daughter, and life are his choices as he slugs away at a work camp. For some reason, everyone calls him Grimes and it makes him seem more threatening. Major General Beale asks him if he wants to kill or die. Rick simply replies “Look in my eyes, sir. You tell me.” We don’t know what Rick’s gone through over the years. But our guy is totally fed up with the BS after over a decade of captivity.

Meanwhile, Michonne is with that mysterious and massive group she fell in line with when she left in The Walking Dead season 10. She still looks like a total boss and is holding onto the phone that has her image sketched into it. There’s a phrase on the screen in Japanese that translates to “believe a little longer. “What a fitting phrase for someone who’s on a quest to find her man. It’s quite the emotional mission for her as she swings her katana and heads right into harm’s way. (How can you not love Danai Gurira?!)

Like the recent spinoffs featuring Daryl, Negan, and Maggie, The Ones Who Live takes on a massive, cinematic scope that sets it apart from the The Walking Dead TV series. This story will span through the northeast, from remote places to Rick’s location, which appears to be in Philadelphia at the primary Civic Republic location. There’s burning walkers, violence, a crashing helicopter, and so much chaos. Rick Grimes is the heart of The Walking Dead universe and it feels so good to see him back again in The Ones Who Live trailer. As Michonne says in the trailer, they can make the whole damn world theirs if they want to… and I believe it.
