This article contains spoilers for The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live episode 1.

The first episode of The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live ends with the moment that The Walking Dead fans have long been waiting for.

After Rick Grimes’ (Andrew Lincoln) helicopter is shot out of the sky, he battles his attackers on the ground only to be bested by a superior foe. Said foe removes Rick’s CRM-issued helmet only to be taken aback by what they see. That’s because Rick’s would-be killer is none other than his wife Michonne (Danai Gurira). For the first time since Rick exited the flagship series in 2018, two of The Walking Dead‘s most important characters are finally back together.

Thanks to the time-hopping events of The Ones Who Live‘s premiere, we know the circuitous path that Rick took to get to this encounter. It all involved: surviving a bridge explosion, ending up with the Civic Republic Military as a consignee, and then spending years trying to get away before grimly accepting that there is no escape and he might as well fix this flawed institution from the inside. Still, we don’t quite know how Michonne ended up in that Pennsylvania field reunited with her man.
