“The Walking Dead” is still a few weeks away from its Season 5 premiere, but fans don’t have to wait until then to take a bite out of the coming drama. The title for the premiere episode has been released online -- and it’s bound to send chills down your spine.
Fans of the hit AMC series will remember the group had been forced to split up following the Governor’s attack on the prison. The second half of Season 4 followed the survivors as they sought out food, shelter and weapons while fighting not only zombies, but humans as well. However, there was one thing that gave them hope when times got tough -- “sanctuary.”
“Terminus,” Daryl heard on a radio broadcast before the downfall of the prison. “Those that arrive, survive. Sanctuary for all.”
After the group split, the survivors began stumbling across signs for Terminus. Hopeful for another safe haven and to potentially meet up with former group members, (almost) everyone began heading for the supposed “sanctuary.” But as “Walking Dead” viewers saw in the Season 4 finale, Terminus did not turn out to be the safe ground they were hoping for. Glenn’s and Maggie’s group was locked up and stripped of their weapons and supplies. Rick, Michonne, Daryl and Carl came shortly afterward and met a similar fate. The good news? Most of the prison survivors were able to reunite. The bad news? Nobody was certain what the folks at Terminus had in store for them.
As Maggie’s Lauren Cohan revealed during the special summer episode of “The Talking Dead,” the Season 5 premiere of “The Walking Dead” is going to be “do or die.” Rick and the others not only will have to be “resourceful” to get out of the mess at Terminus, but also will have to be “brutal.”
After an emphasis on a giant barbeque pit of meat, and an area full of what looked like human remains, “Walking Dead” fans began speculating the survivors had accidentally stumbled into a camp full of cannibals. If the rumors turn out to be true, then the Season 5 premiere title will truly live up to its name, “No Sanctuary.”
“The Walking Dead” Season 5 will premiere on AMC Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. EDT. What do you think of the Season 5 premiere title? Tweet your thoughts to @AmandaTVScoop.
