Did you hear the collective “Awww!” as Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira)  got some quality time alone together in Sunday’s episode of  The Walking Dead? Richonne is just too cute for words. The couple that slays together, stays together.

Spoilers ahead!
Stop here if you haven’t seen episode 12, season 7 of The Walking Dead

In the episode title “Say Yes,” Rick and Michonne are on that all-important supply run, looking for the guns they’ve promised the Scavengers. This is also a mini romantic getaway for our favorite couple, as they laugh and flirt — and frequently have sex in the back of the van. #RelationshipGoals.

They aren’t finding much. Michonne wants to go back, but Rick says, “Just a little more.” We feel ya, buddy. Why face reality when you got a good thing going?

Back in Alexandria, Rosita (Christian Serratos) is still all grumpy-pants on why it’s taking so long to organize the rebellion. She wants to take action now ― and is kind of being a pain in the ass.

Of course, Tara (Alanna Masterson) is still keeping her promise not to tell her friends about Oceanside and all the guns they have, but it’s a dilemma she is wrestling with. Or so she tells baby Judith.

Cut to Richonne, as they find a decrepit carnival, filled with military and civilian walkers. Zombie Fair! They see the soldiers are carrying guns, and they also discover a small building filled with food, including delicious, vacuum-sealed military rations. They feast on a mac and cheese and chili combo — “together,” Rick stresses — and Michonne tells Rick he would make a good president once they get rid of Negan and the Saviors.

Back to getting those guns, they come up with a plan to kill the small herd of zombies, but they don’t realize the car they’re trying to use to block a gap in the fence doesn’t have brakes. The two are stuck in the car with the walkers swarming around them. Nonplussed about the situation, they make it out. No big whoop.

Then, as they divide and conquer, slashing walkers in their separate areas…

Rick sees a deer and remembers he owes Michonne one after he made her miss the last one. Yet, in his attempts to kill the animal, he falls from his perch on the Ferris wheel — and the zombies zero in. Michonne runs over to help, but for one long, desperate moment, it seems the walkers are eating — gasp! — Rick.

Then Rick pops out of a box, and he’s OK!

It’s almost too much for Michonne, that she can’t ever lose him, but Rick tells her that if it came down to it, she could survive.

They give the guns to the Scavengers, but they have to make another deal to find more guns. Damn that Jadis.

Oh, and Rosita has had it and goes seeking help from Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) to kill Negan. Sasha will, so long as she can take the shot. They agree that it’s a one-way ticket for both of them.

Then there’s next week’s sneak peek: Has Carol finally come to her senses?

The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC
