EW Covers The Walking Dead Season 5

The Walking Dead Season 5 Promo

I’m probably the only fan of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” who thought the Season 4 finale was kinda, well, predictable, with the final few minutes, when they’re running around the joint being herded by the bad guys, kind of lame. I mean, the special effects during that sequence. Wow. The bullet squibs? I thought it was a joke at first, but nope, I’m supposed to take that seriously. I think my 10-year-old nephew could have done better on his Mac Quadra. (Now that’s old school computing, kids!)

Anyways, Season 5 is on the way this October and will no doubt be another massive hit as we see how Rick and company manage to escape their current predicament. In preparation, EW has put out four snazzy covers featuring the boys and girls as they struggle to survive in their hellish new environment. Apparently they’ll achieve this by moving super fast like the Flash…or something.

(And there is something about Daryl possibly being gay or some such running around the interwebs, if such things matter to you.)

Here’s the Season 5 Comic Con trailer in case you missed it the first time ’round:
