‘The Walking Dead’ 2015 Premiere Clip: Find Out “What Happened, and What’s Going On!”
‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 will pick up after 2014's grim “Coda” in just a few days time, but who can stand to wait for fresh footage to shuffle out, when Rick Grimes remains such a man of action? Find out where the survivors head next with our first official clip from Sunday’s 2015 premiere “What Happened, and What’s Going On!”
Awkward episode titles not withstanding, the latter half of season 5 seems to pick up on an exceptionally dour note, even for ‘The Walking Dead,’ as the group reels over the loss of Beth. Not only does Maggie seem utterly broken, but Father Gabriel’s words offer little comfort during the burial, while Rick and Noah plot their next move toward a supposed safe haven outside of Virginia.
Plus, random prison and Woodbury cameos via montage, why not! Here’s how AMC describes Sunday’s premiere “What Happened and What’s Going On”:
After all the recent trials the group has faced, a slight detour might prove to be the solution they’ve been looking for.
Descriptive! Additionally, so reads the full synopsis for season 5's back half:
After the tragic events of the mid-season finale–as well as losing the possibility of a cure in Washington, DC–Rick Grimes’ band of survivors find themselves on the road, surviving day to day and trying to hold on to their shredded humanity and dwindling hope.
Stripped of security and without a direction for the future, some of the group near their breaking point, some find themselves hardened and cold and some just try to grasp on to what little they have left.
Though they are still breathing, the line between Rick’s group and the dead is starting to blur. Could there be anything at this point that brings them back to life?
Showrunner Scott Gimple previously teased that the group will undergo a “huge change” in situation, both visually and story-wise, which would seem to resemble a famous comic location emerging around this time. In addition to Ross Marquand’s casting as a new mystery man, we’ve also yet to meet ‘American Horror Story’ star Alexandra Breckinridge’s character, who has been said to recur.
