AMC released its first promo art for The Walking Dead’s second half of season 5, and it is a doozy if you are the type of person that gets really, really excited about maps. (Click on the magnifying glass icon on the photo above to see the full image.)
The key thing to take away from this art is that the group appears to be once again on the move. Not surprising considering both Terminus and Father Gabriel’s church were overrun by zombies, and Rick already made it clear staying at Grady Memorial Hospital was not an option. So where to next? Is that half-destroyed seemingly suburban dwelling we see a clue? Also, what is the significance of Rick and Daryl turned towards us while everyone else is waking away? (I mean, other than the probability that AMC is operating under the philosophy than when you can show Norman Reedus’ face—you do it.) Plus, what is that map even doing there anyway? Doesn’t Morgan have the map back at the church? Does this mean that Morgan will finally catch up to the gang? On the flip side, not to nitpick or anything, but even in the zombie apocalypse littering is never cool. Morgan, dude—give a hoot, don’t pollute.
Anyhoo, we’ll have to wait until the midseason premiere on Feb. 8 for more answers. But for now, go ahead and click on the magnifying glass icon to see the image in all of its full-blown glory and try not to feel creepy for staring at a bunch of people’s butts.
