“The Walking Dead” Season 5 took a midseason break and can we just say that we are longing for more! The next episode for season 5 airs on Feb. 08, 2015 and yes, it’s quite a long wait but don’t you worry because we have some major spoilers for you – something to look forward to! Read below for more details.
Beth’s death was expected – well not her death specifically but the death of a main character was anticipated. In an interview with Entertainment Wise, Scott M. Gimple, producer and showrunner of the show, has something to say regarding Beth's death. He also implied that the death of a major character isn’t the end of it because viewers can anticipate another pain coming for them.
“This is a crushing blow, this is something that is utterly devastating to them. This is something that will affect all of these characters extremely deeply moving into the next half of the season. These characters being ground down into the Earth,” Gimple said in the interview.
He added: “I will say that this isn’t the last devastating event to befall these characters. They are being tested and they are being pushed and this isn’t the end of that. I would say that isn’t the entirely of season 5 B but that being ground down into the Earth is where it starts.”
According to another teaser, it seems like Rick’s team is headed for a different situation and they may not be able to work well together when it comes to dealing with it. We wonder what that is? And with Rick’s team growing larger, the possibility of them working in unity is doubtful and this may create conflict.
The characters are said to be taken into more suburban locations this time and it will follow the comic timeline more closely than before. Another casting update is that a gay character will join Rick and his gang for the second half of Season 5. .
