Season 5 of "The Walking Dead" will premiere Sunday, October 12th at 9/8c. The final episode ended with a few different cliff hangers to keep us guessing about what is in store for the survivors.
Here are five things you should anticipate for the next chapter of the zombie apocalypse:
Trouble at Terminus: We could smell that danger was in the air as we saw the maps marking Terminus’ location with the words: “Sanctuary For All, Community For All, Those Who Arrive Survive.” It caused a goose bump-inducing chill to crawl up our spines. Of course, it took the entire second half of the season- as the survivors trekked to Terminus- to discover that our assumptions were correct. In the final episode most of the main characters are trapped together, potentially in the hands of cannibals. Let’s see who makes it out alive.
Beth Back in Action: The last trace we saw of Beth was her backpack laying on the ground after she was abducted and driven away. Last season she went through a lot of growth mentally as well as physically, and her desire to survive is at a peak. It seems like she will find a way back to the group, unless the odds against her are truly insurmountable.
Change of Scenery: Since season 1, the show has taken place in rural settings, but now they are on a mission to find a cure- a goal that is larger than individual survival. However, they aren’t going to uncover a solution to the zombie apocalypse in the country. They must retrace their steps back into the cities, which will significantly increase the danger for all involved. Be prepared to be at the edge of your seat.
Rekindled Romance: At the end of last season Maggie and Glenn were reunited once more. We can probably expect some loving moments between these two characters, which will serve as a little light relief from all the depressing death and destruction. I mean, really, it can’t be all action, murder and gore. We have to have something to hope for- what’s better than happily ever after?
More Moves from Michonne: Let’s just say it- Michonne is a beast. She slashes and slices her samurai sword and the heads of zombies fall at her feet faster than it would take most of us to turn around. She is the epitome of a strong, ass-kicking female character. The fire within her will not be extinguished anytime soon so it seems like a safe guess that we are probably in for some more action-packed scenes that involve her slaying a group of walkers single-handedly.
