One Good Thing Might Come From Rick Grimes & Maggie Rhee Exit

Will Daryl Dixon become Judith's Godfather?

Imagine a scenario where Rick and Maggie are written off the show. If Rick Grimes dies or “exits,” there is a high probability that Michonne will also die or “exit,” since they’re a couple. Last season, when Michonne thought Rick died, she literally dropped her katana and was almost killed herself.

However Rick and Maggie exit the show, there’s a chance that we’re going to see a Godfather-like moment when Daryl Dixon steps up to raise Judith.
