Gareth is messing with the wrong man in this new The Walking Dead Season 5 family trailer that briefly paints a picture of what’s on tap for Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his captive friends.
At the conclusion of Season 4, Gareth (Andrew J. West) and his Terminus goons captured Rick, Carl, Michonne and Daryl, and stuffed them into a rail car that also held Glenn, Maggie and others. It was a reunion half a season in the making, yet under the most unfortunate of circumstances.
The prevailing theory about Gareth and his group’s intentions are that they’re cannibals and intend to eat Rick and his friends. A shot in this trailer of Rick and Glenn, bound and gagged, with Gareth’s goons behind them wearing protecting outfits reinforces this ideas.
The Walking Dead Season 5 family trailer may conclude with Gareth cracking a wry grin, but I have a feeling he didn’t count on Tyreese and Carol showing up to spoil the feast.
The Walking Dead Season 5 premiere date is set for Sunday, October 12 at 9/8c. It will air exclusively on AMC.
