The Walking Dead’s fifth season will soon be available for purchase on DVD, but you don’t have to wait to get a sneak peek at the special features that will be available.

Luckily for us, we already know a lot of the extras that will be available on the DVD set.  Included will be commentary, deleted scenes, interviews, featurettes, and looks inside the filming of the hit AMC show.  With all the content available when the DVD set goes on sale August 25, 2015, fans got a little taste of what they’ll be getting when a deleted scene from the show was released as a sneak peek.

Here is the deleted scene from season 5 episode 13.  It is set in Alexandria and features Rick and Michonne talking about giving up their weapons.  This is from the Starz Media YouTube account:

It’s interesting that this scene shows Michonne questioning Rick Grimes about giving up their weapons.  The feeling from the product that was put on AMC made us believe that Rick was the skeptical one that trusted nearly nobody once they arrived in Alexandria.

In addition, Michonne was the one who was ready to find a place like Alexandria to settle down.  The look that Michonne gives Rick in this scene is priceless, but it doesn’t make a lot of sense as to following the story of these characters on The Walking Dead.

Personally, I’m glad this scene wasn’t in the show because it gives too much foreshadowing about Michonne’s sword.  While the sword did represent a lot of things in the show, I feel its significance would have been stretched too far when it’s part of other conversations often.  From the symbolism of violence to going on the shelf to the weapon going into the wrong hands when Pete stole it from her house, I feel it’s just a bit much.

Still, it’s awesome to get a sneak peek at some of the deleted scenes that will be available on the DVD set when it releases.

What do you think of this deleted scene?  Should it have been included in the initial airing of The Walking Dead on AMC?  Or does it not quite fit in with the rest of the conversations and story from the show?  Let me know what you guys think in the comments below.
