With The Walking Dead season 4 now behind us, the cast and crew are discussing what to expect in season 5 later this year.

Last night’s season 4 finale (check out our recap) saw most of the survivors reunited – but unfortunately they’re trapped in a train car at Terminus, the supposed sanctuary.

In last night’s episode Rick seemed confident that they’ll be able to push back against Gareth and the others. “They’re going to feel pretty stupid when they find out,” he said at the end of episode 16. “Find out what?” Abraham asked. “They’re screwing with the wrong people.”

How will they fight when they’re without weapons and outnumbered? There’s no clear answer yet, but in a new featurette posted on AMC’s website we hear predictions from the cast and crew.

“You can always evolve,” says Michonne actress Danai Gurira. “There’s constant evolution of self that happens in this world, and that’s what’s always fascinating because we don’t know who anybody is going to be by the beginning of season 5.”

That evolution may be what leads the characters to put on their biggest fight yet. Rick has obviously had one of the biggest evolutions after we saw him bite into Joe’s neck.

Said Walking Dead producer Gale Anne Hurd of the people at Terminus, “They’ve encountered a group unlike any group that they’ve seen before because it’s pretty up front with them. Unlike with The Governor who had the facade of being a benevolent despot.”

Producer Greg Nictoero has high hopes for Rick. “I would pretty much guarantee that we’re going to see a completely different Rick Grimes in season 5,” he says. “One who just is willing to do anything and would never question any motive or any decision. He just goes into it head first.”

Said Rick actor Andrew Lincoln, “It’s going to be messy, it’s going to be brutal. It’s going to be thrilling how these guys get out of this.”

In a separate interview with Deadline, showrunner Scott M. Gimple says that the first half of The Walking Dead season 5 will include quite a bit of action – something that was lagging in season 4. “I would say that these next eight episodes are going to be a little more action-heavy, with a lot of big twists,” he said. “Really 85% of [the survivors] are together again, so it’s a pretty good guess that they’re going to remain together and that’s going to give us a whole new emotional dynamic as well.”

“So I guess the biggest thing is prepare for a very different Walking Dead. Yet again.”

What are your early ‘Walking Dead’ season 5 predictions?

Thanks to Deadline for the comments from Gimple.

    I think Carol will have a big part in their rescue. 1) She and Tyreese are the only ones who haven’t arrived at Terminus yet and if they wanted them to be captured, they would’ve shown it. So obviously they have a reason they haven’t made it there yet. 2) Carol has done some crazy stuff this season so shooting up Terminus/planning an escape isn’t out of her range. 3) Rick kicked Carol out because he was afraid she would endanger his family and friends. How amazing would it be for Carol to save Judith (which she has already done twice now), Rick, Carl, AND everyone else. Not much of a danger is she? ;) Hope it happens!

      All of you who say that Carol and Tyreese wil save the rest by planning their escape forget two major details: 1) THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT TERMINUS REALLY IS, 2) THEY DON’T KNOW THAT THE OTHERS ARE IN THERE. For all they know, the others are dead.
      If they find out what Terminus really is, and if they find out that the others are in there, it’ll be too late for them as well.

    I’m very excited for the return of the show. It sounds like its getting back in shape with more action, a few new characters, and the return of old favorites. I’m wondering how many episodes the group’s escape will be. I can’t really see it lasting more than three episodes, maybe four (because you know there’s going to be a whole episode dedicated to where Carol/Tyreese’s group is and how they get to Terminus).

    I’m curious if Beth can talk her way out of whatever redicament she’s in. She was reared in a Christian household. Clearly she has an undrstaning of the Bible. I wonder if it’s some kind of relious nut that has her if she can spout enough lingo to to save herself.

  • Kelly b

    I believe a priest has Beth. I don’t believe she is in any danger. I think that beth will meet up with Carol and tyreese and take care of Judith while Carol and tyreese head to terminus to help Rick and the rest of the group escape. I think at least one person out of the group will die in the escape. Or somebody will be left behind.. after the group escapes they head back with Carol to where beth and the priest are..rick & Carl are over joyed to find Judith alive. And Daryl and Beth have their first long awaited kiss(with Carol heart broken and confused) and the priest becomes the new voice of reason (like Herschel/dale) the team celebrates and rest before conspiring a plan to take down terminus in revenge or rescue… or both. .

    And those are my predictions folks ;)
    What do you think?

    • Ultron

      Hmmm….not bad. I like it. I could see Tyreese maybe dying though.

      • Kelly b

        Sadly I do too but I hope not because he is one of my favorite characters I really thought Glenn was Gunna die in the Finale though. He was killed by Gareth in the comics I believe. So who knows. The only people I’m sure are not gunna die is rick and carl and michone.. and Daryl of course.

        • Ultron

          Nah he was killed by Negan. Gareth isn’t in the comics. He’s like a culmination of multiple characters.

          Daryl is going to die in the mid season finale of season 6. the first half of season 5 will be all about fightin/escaping terminus: carol and tyreese find the gun bag and recognises ricks revolver so they do some recon. and hear them in the train car, as they rescue them someone will get captured (my guess is Eugene and someone else), this will lead Abraham to take charge of the 2nd in command spot and they will start a “war” to get them back, at the end of the season you will see Terminus burning with walkers everywhere and the remaining survivors leaving to WA. D.C. on the otherside of terminus will be Negan holding his baseball bat. season 6 will have ricks group going to the capital, when they find the Alexandria safe zone but Negan catches up with them and convinces them that they are bad and will try to convince ricks group to join him. when they see how bad Negan is Rick will attack and Daryl will throw himself at all of Negans group while the rest escape to the Safe Zone. season 6 mid season finale will show Negan killing Daryl just like he did Glenn in the comics. (though maybe not so brutal because Daryl is such a popular character AMC may make the writers kill him off in a “nicer” way). what do you think?

          No he was killed by Negan… What kind of uneducated fan are you?

        • conservinFL

          Glenn is killed by Negan in the comic.

    • Walter Gage Steinlechner

      That’s the worst fucking prediction I’ve ever heard.

  • Keith Baley

    remember that gun Rick dug up at the beginning of the season? In the final episode, we saw how that gun got there. It was in Carl’s hat as it fell to the ground, the gun fell out of the hat in one of the flashbacks. Then at the end of the first episode of season 4, Rick gave the gun back to him telling him to hang on to it. He has a habit it looks like of hiding guns in his hat….maybe he’s hiding a gun in his hat at Terminus…

    Honestly if anyone can get out of this mess it’s Rick and the Gang. I can’t wait to see it all unfold!!!!
