The Walking Dead Season 5 premiere on AMC is going to be an incredible episode, as the network has revealed a tantalizing glimpse of the premiere in a video clip that is 4:20 seconds long. The clip from the season 5 premiere of The Walking Dead begins with a scene from the not-too-distant past, Then, of Gareth, the leader of the community of Terminus, talking with someone else about the sort of people they had once been before they brought other people there with a new plan in mind, entirely.
“We brought them here,” the person talking with Gareth says.
“We were trying to do something good. We were trying to be human beings,” Gareth responds.
“What are we now, Gareth?” the other person asks. Screams can be heard in the background.
The Walking Dead video clip switches to Now. Sheriff Rick Grimes and the other survivors with him, imprisoned in a railroad boxcar, have hatched a plan to attack and kill as many of their captors as they can. Rick, Daryl, Sgt. Abraham Ford, and the others have gathered up nails and have constructed make-shift sorts of weapons similar to brass knuckles, to use to first go after the eyes, then the throats, of the people who have imprisoned them.
One of the survivors, possibly Michonne, asks Daryl about Beth. He says “She’s alive.” He tried to follow the vehicle she was in, but could not. He probably really has no idea if Beth is still alive, but that is the answer he gives.
They see four of their captors approaching through cracks in the sides of the boxcar. Their plan goes horribly wrong when the four people remove the roof of the boxcar, and gas everyone inside. They take Rick and the rest of them to a building at Terminus where very ghastly things are happening. Rick and the others are gagged and have plastic restraints around their wrists and ankles and they are forced to kneel down in front of a large sink or trough of some sort.
A person in the background is on a metal table, with two people from Terminus wearing plastic aprons around the person on the table, engaged in the process of cutting him or her up, presumably to eat later. There is intense music playing, creating a disquieting feeling, the type of feeling viewers often have while watching The Walking Dead.
Then, there is the sound of knives being sharpened. A couple of Terminus people walk behind Rick and the other kneeling survivors. One of the members of Terminus is holding what appears to be a metal baseball bat. He walks directly behind the last person in line, kneeling down, and whacks him in the head with the baseball bat. The person falls forward, possibly dead from the impact.
That, fans of The Walking Dead, is what the first few minutes of the premiere is like. The first link below is where the short trailer can be seen, or there is also the video, itself, below. It is a disturbing indication of what the rest of the premiere will be like, though it is disturbing in an edge-of-the-seat way, making fans want to see more of what will follow. However the people of Terminus might once have been like, they appear to be pure evil now, based on the video of the first 4:20 seconds of the premiere of season 5 of The Walking Dead.
