Season Four of The Walking Dead ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate.

Season Five picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group’s lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.

Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them…

After all they’ve seen, all they’ve done, all they’ve sacrificed, lost, and held on to no matter what the cost...

Who do they become?

The Walking Dead Characters

RICK accepts he is a leader. It’s who he is and how others see him. He is not demanding it or denying it. He accepts the brutality of the world, and the brutality he has to perpetrate. He is able to be a father and a friend.

DARYL is defined. He is no longer angry at the loss of the prison. He saved Rick, Carl and Michonne before he knew it was them. That is proof to himself of his true character.

GLENN knows hopeful things can happen. He found his wife and he helped Tara unconditionally. With some humanity witnessed within himself, Glenn is able to invest in the notion of a future.

MAGGIE has doubled her faith in people. She is grounded in the fact that hope is tangible. She sees there is still beauty in this world.

CARL has returned to a place of optimism, but not one of innocence. No longer a child, but still a son, he stands confident beside his father. He is a vital contributing member within the group.

MICHONNE is committed to the group, and is still a force to be reckoned with. She will not allow the group to disband or be disbanded again by surprise. She is at the ready, always.

CAROL grew to be the protector at all costs over the past seasons. She didn’t like what she had to do, but understands she had to do it, and no one else. No pride in what she did, but no regrets.

BETH is missing. She has come to terms with the losses in her life, most recently being her boyfriend Zach and her Dad, the beloved Hershel, and the prison itself. She is tough. She lives in the now, having learned many survival skills over the seasons.

TYREESE was last seen at the grove. He carried and felt the weight of all the things that happened to him, yet he remained non-judgmental. He struggles to abide on higher ground while bearing witness to continued human suffering and vast devastation.

SASHA remains strong physically. She has started a relationship with Bob. He spoke directly to her fears and that allowed her to trust. Fostered by Bob, Sasha is encouraged and hopeful amid their grave surroundings.

BOB’s curse has been lifted. He found a group, and found them again. The core group is still alive despite having taken him in. He has started a relationship with Sasha.

SGT. ABRAHAM FORD is mission oriented. All he says and does leads in one direction – getting Eugene to D.C., even as they are hostages in a railcar awaiting imminent death.

TARA, introduced to the group by Glenn and Maggie, is determined to help them all. Tara is seeking something more to fight for than mere day-to-day survival.

ROSITA is determined and just as mission-oriented as Abraham, independent of him. She is a realist and survivalist, knowing Eugene is possibly humanity's only chance to alter this world. She is committed to the group, but will maintain the course at any cost.

DR. EUGENE PORTER is observant and focused, but not a warrior. He knows his survival, and that of the world, depends on the group protecting him and getting him to Washington.

GARETH is a pragmatic leader at Terminus, a dangerous man with secrets.

FATHER GABRIEL STOKES, an iconic character from the graphic novel, is a man of the cloth who is just starting to face the truths of this dark world.
