Rick Grimes started his experience in the zombie apocalypse on a less-than-ideal note, seeing that he came out of a coma to find the whole world turned upside down. Equipped only with a hospital gown and underpants, he came to his senses and left for the rubble of human society. Luckily, Morgan Jones (Lennie James) ran into him and brought him up to speed, allowing Rick to don a more appropriate outfit and hit the road in hopes of reuniting with his wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and his son Carl (Chandler Riggs).
Fast forward to Season 8, and Rick has hit a dead end. After a failed attempt to convince them to break off their union with Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors, a group of trash dwellers known as the Scavengers take Rick their prisoner. According to their leader, Jadis (Pollyanna McIntosh), he is forced to strip naked and fight off an armed walker with his bare hands. As pointed out @RickAndThangs on Twitter, Rick appears to be wearing the same blue boxers he wore at the start of Season 1.
Food, water, shelter and apparently shorts are missing during the apocalypse. We can only hope it was just a coincidence and that Rick has at least a few pairs of underwear in regular rotation. If not, hopefully he’s washed this blue pair regularly over the past few years. Otherwise, let’s be honest, it’s pretty rude.
