The Walking Dead Season 5 Midseason Premiere Video Leaves Viewers In Anticipation

The scene opens with Ricks raspy southern voice. Professing a new idea, an idea that requires doing what it takes to stay alive, then we get to LIVE!

He and the group will do whatever it takes to stay alive. After the death of Beth, there are no fucks to give.



 

The Walking Dead on AMC: Midseason Premiere Season 5

Last nights episode left many people reeling. For many, it wasn’t a shock. For those reading my posts, one can start to infer from the conclusion I end on what most likely is going to happen. I didn’t want to directly state it even though that would have been great publicity. The importance is having viewers live in the moment and suffer with the cast. As we saw over the past 8 episodes, Beth grew into a very confident person. She saw purpose within herself, but it turned to cockiness. If she had been with Rick and the group at the time of this occurrence, the outcome would have been different. It’s a dangerous thing to gain cockiness in a location where you are by yourself. That being said, I cried a little.

We hear the voice of Michonne speaking to the group in the entrance of episode 9. Remember, she was the first one to be told that Eugene lied. So as to not shock anyone, she talks about…. it’s only 100 miles away. Where do you think they are going?

Also, we see Maggie through the scope of a passenger door crying. Unable to come to grips that her last remaining blood is gone from this world. Is this enough for you to let go or will she seek Glenn’s help?  Below is the premiere of the walking dead season 5 episode 9 video.
 


 


The Walking Dead Season 5 Midseason Finale – What We Read, Shocked Us!

What I learned about what was to come for the walking dead season 5 prior to the airing, utterly left me stunned. The AMC television show, “The Walking Dead, has become a series masterpiece reaching as high as 30 million viewers.

The show is a media phenomena that defies what we know about viewer interest. That being said, what has made the show a hit success comes down to a science: 1) Lots of gore; 2) Impressive casting; and 3) Stunning story line that implements human behavior and personality.

The creator, Robert Kirkman is known for his writing antics, placing everything on the edge, pushing the boundaries of comic and television lines. In order to be successful, one needs to be willing to step out of the comfort zone and press notions that rarely are brought to light.



 

This being said, many aspects of this season has already pushed viewers to their limits including the consumption of human flesh (cannibalism), but where does it end? The last episode, we come to understand that the group continues to show their humanity, but in the end, doesn’t work out for them. As a result, it puts many people in bad situations and leads them into arena that ultimately can get them killed.

Now, if you have made it this far in reading this post, you are at that moment where you are wondering where the headline comes into play. You are sort of annoyed and on the verge of pissed. But the simple fact is this post is supposed to gain awareness for what the television has in stored. Someone is going to die that is relatively important to us while leaving us questioning the outcome of others. Think back at what has happened so far. Look at the sneak peek video. What does all of this have in common and tell us about what the mid-season finale should present? As we know, things never totally go the way Rick plans and it is too soon for the group to remove themselves from the present situation and continue on their merry way.

Giving away the ending is something that I have been known for, but rather not kill the interest and anticipation. All I will reveal is that “weakness has been revealed and a newer threat is about to rear its ugly head.”
