A couple of years ago, sometime around October 2003, a comic book was published and later on turned into a television series known as ‘The Walking Dead’. At first, I thought it was just another typical zombie apocalypse story, wherein the survivors must face the horrible situations that the zombies brought on our world, and I find that kind of story line a bit boring. To be honest, I’m not a fan of zombies. I hate them because they gave me nightmares. I can’t even stay in my seat every time a show about them is playing, especially if its ’28 days later’, because believe me, that movie made me locked our whole place down for how many nights. But it all changed when I saw a door at our television that had these words, “Don’t open, Dead inside”. And that’s the time I told myself that cat isn’t the only the thing that curiosity kills, also our fear.
‘The Walking Dead’ isn’t the typical zombie show. Maybe at first it was, but as the show goes by, it’s very different. It’s not just about killing and madness, it’s also about love, friendship and keeping your family safe. It made us open our eyes to a thing that sometimes we can’t notice and that is: ‘Family does not end in blood.’. We will see a lot of that in this upcoming new season.
As a fan of TWD, both in comic book and TV series, I’m expecting to see a lot of things. I mean come on, after that mind blowing trailer (plus the sneak peek scenes); the upcoming new season will be definitely a blast. First, I am expecting to see how the group will survive from Termites (terminus people). I want to see them working together, especially now that Carol and Tyreese are back in the group.
Second, I’m expecting that they will show us who kidnapped Beth and why did they do it. And because of some clips from the trailer, I think she’s in a bad community. Because of the pictures of the beardless Andrew (a.k.a Rick Grimes) that are swimming on the internet, I’m expecting to see, well maybe I’m not the only one, the Alexandria Safe Zone. They might show it at the middle part because they will encounter Fr. Gabriel and of course, deal with the walkers that are roaming around them and that good-looking leader of Terminus is still with them that I’m sure will have a part in the show (or in the list of dead characters), so maybe before they show it, there will be a lot of fights, blood and guts flying over them. It will be a long road for them and we never know, they might lose some on the way.
And lastly, the thing, more of like the person that I am expecting to see is Negan. We all have our favorite villain so you can’t blame me if I want to see him on my screen with Lucille on his hand. And probably Glen’s head on the other (#spoiler). And the revelation of Eugene’s secret is also on my “expecting” list.
So yeah, in short, I’m expecting to see A LOT of ‘stuff ‘n things’ in this new upcoming season five of The Walking Dead. We are talking about a creation of Robert Kirkman here, anything can happen. He can kill Daryl. Make Michonne in love with Rick. Hell, he can even give Judith her first walker kill.
Anything is possible in ‘The Walking Dead’. And the more we expect, the more we get hurt. But that is the great thing about this show, they can make us feel what they feel. So in the end, if they make Rick look at the flowers or separate our Caryl again, they are not just screwing with the wrong people, they’re also screwing with the wrong fans.
