Walking Dead fans always have one thing on their mind: Who dies next? As The Walking Dead Season 5 prepares for its return on Sunday, October 12, we can anticipate at least one major player taking a dirt nap before the debut episode No Sanctuary comes to a close. While time feels like its running out for Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln), both long since perished in the original comic book, it may be too early to let them go just yet. And then there's the question of whether fan-favorite Daryl will finally see his comeuppance?

None of this is revealed, of course, in the official The Walking Dead Season 5 synopsis just released by AMC. But it does tease the survivors' escape from Terminus, where they were last seen locked in a rail car ready to be consumed by a group of hungry cannibals. What do these latest episodes have in store? A trip to Washington D.C.? New Romance? Hope?

Take a look:

The Walking Dead Season 4 ended with Rick and the group outgunned, outnumbered, and trapped in a train car awaiting a grim fate. The Walking Dead Season 5 picks up shortly thereafter. What follows is a story that weaves the true motives of the people of Terminus with the hopeful prospect of a cure in Washington, D.C., the fate of the group's lost comrades, as well as new locales, new conflicts, and new obstacles in keeping the group together and staying alive.

Stories will break apart and intersect. The characters will find love and hate. Peace and conflict. Contentment and terror. And, in the quest to find a permanent, safe place to call home, one question will haunt them...After all they've seen, all they've done, all they've sacrificed, lost, and held on to no matter what the cost...Who do they become?

The Walking Dead Season 5 returns to AMC Sunday, October 12. Are you ready?
