A Look Back at The Walking Dead’s Season Five: They’re Screwing with the Wrong People


“They’re screwing with the wrong people.” That’s how Rick Grimes left us last year at this time when many of the survivors finally arrived at Terminus and reunited inside a locked train car after a long road from the prison after The Governor ended Hershel’s life with a swift swing of Michonne’s sword and the whisper of the word, “Liar.” 

Season Five wasted no time getting us back into the walker world of gore, action, heroes, despair, enemies, and surviving. Let’s look back at a quick-burst recap of season five.  I hope these tidbits bring back great memories for you!
