As his former lover, she quickly recognised them and soon discovered they were originally found on an old, deserted ship.
There she found one of the biggest clues to his consciousness, it was an iPhone which had a drawing of Michonne and his daughter Judith Grimes (Cailey Fleming).
It also had Rick’s name scribbled on top with some Japanese characters and was a piece of technology the CRM had access to.
Even though nearly four years have passed since his last appearance and considering this season is the final instalment, it seems likely Negan’s “mysterious friend” would be Rick.
Fans will have to stay tuned to see if this will be the case and if Michonne will come across any other clues.
The Walking Dead season 11B continues every Sunday on AMC in the USA and on Disney+ every Monday in the UK.
