Is Rick Grimes beyond The Perimeter on The Walking Dead: World Beyond? AMC’s Walking Dead Universe expands with a new community revealed in the Season 2 premiere, “Konsekans,” which could connect the spin-off to Michonne’s (Danai Gurira) exit from The Walking Dead. In Season 10, Episode 13, “What We Become,” she sails to Bloodsworth Island with Virgil (Kevin Carroll) to find weapons and end The Whisperer War. Michonne ultimately sets off searching for Rick (Andrew Lincoln) after finding clues he survived his apparent death in Season 9, unaware Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh) flew Rick to safety aboard a Civic Republic Military helicopter.
“What We Become” ends with Michonne finding Rick’s boots and a cellphone etched with the image of Michonne and her daughter Judith Grimes (Cailey Fleming). “Rick” is scratched on the phone marked with Japanese characters, translated to “believe a little bit longer.” Walking Dead showrunner Angela Kang confirmed Rick did not write the message on the phone, telling EW: “It was a message to Rick from somebody, somehow on this boat.”
Michonne also finds a logbook that visited Tampa Bay, Florida; Hopewell, Virginia; and Bridgers Shipyard, New Jersey. The state is home to a shipyard located near the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania border.
