It's been a few weeks since we've seen very much from 'The Walking Dead' season 5, at least after the inaugural round of context-less character photos, but no more! Rick and the other trapped Terminus folk are finding "No Sanctuary" in the full gallery of October 12 premiere photos, and their grill-happy captors are definitely screwing with the wrong people, by the looks of things.
Though it remains to be seen exactly how 'The Walking Dead''s core cast escape from Terminus and reunite, our full photo set from season 5 premiere episode "No Sanctuary" sees Rick and co. spanning the spectrum of distress, fashioning crude train-car weapons in one image, hog-tied in from of Gareth in another, and brandishing an AK-47 later on. Producers still aren't quite confirming that "Terminans" as cannibals, but either way, it would seem some ambient walkers are more than happy to chow down on whoever's available.
Here's how AMC describes the new season, due to shamble out on October 12:
Season Four of The Walking Dead ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate. Season Five picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.
Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them…After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held on to no matter what the cost…Who do they become?
While we wait for ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5, we know that existing stars Christian Serratos (Rosita), Alanna Masterson (Tara) and Andrew J. West (Gareth) have all been upgraded to series regulars, while ‘The Wire‘ star Seth Gilliam joined in a role confirmed to be that of comic preacher Gabriel Stokes. The fifth season of AMC’s monster-drama will pick up shortly after season 4 finale “A,” eschewing the usual time jump to show Rick and his cohorts’ time at Terminus. Oh, and don’t forget about that Comic-Con 2014 trailer, or our beat-by-beat breakdown of its secrets!
