Default Re: Rick "Motherf***in" Grimes Thread

The problem with Rick breaking down and seeing people that aren't there, having imaginary love making and long phone calls, and all that, is how he's handled as a character going forward.

Did that firefight really snap him out of it? Is that how mental illness works, and that's how I define his behavior. It doesn't strike me as symptoms that are fixed with a good night's slumber. I believe the firefight was a temporary fix because he's shell shocked and combat is now the norm for him.

If this is going to be permanent part of his character, dealing with his demons, that's cool. I just don't want them to be like, "I talked with imaginary Lori and settled my business with her. I'm at peace" and Rick's suddenly cured. That'd be bulls***
