At the end of Season 4, Rick and his crew made it to Terminus, where they were promptly locked away in a railroad car. The latest trailers already teased a Terminus massacre, but we know Rick and some, if not all of his fellow survivors, will escape from terminus at some point.

Stay tuned for more footage and photos as we get closer and closer to the Season 5 Premiere, airing Sunday, October 12 at 9 PM ET on AMC.
