It’s not exactly a spoiler to know Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company will get out of Terminus in The Walking Dead Season 5. The Termites were screwing with the wrong people, after all. But one thing filming spoilers, rumors and speculation haven’t answered is how they get out of Terminus. Fans have shared their own theories, but the answer will emerge when Season 5 arrives in October.

Comic book writer/TV exec producer Robert Kirkman recently told Entertainment Weekly we’ll get a ton of answers about Terminus in the very first episode. But is that also when they escape? He didn’t say that much, but Kirkman did tell EW, “They definitely get out of that train car. They do not spend the entirety of Season 5 in that train car. It is through ingenuity and creativity and somewhat savageness that they are able to make their way out of that train car.”

Brains and brawn to the rescue! Of course, with the amount of hotness in that train car, they could’ve also tried flirting their way out. Mary might’ve joined the line of Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) fans.



What kind of creativity and savageness, though?

More biting like Rick vs. Joe’s neck in the Season 4 finale? Something involving Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) and Tyreese (Chad Coleman), who were last seen on their way to Terminus? Something involving Rick’s secret stash of weapons outside the Terminus fence? Something involving Beth Greene (Emily Kinney), who was last seen running from the funeral home house and most likely abducted by whoever was driving that car with the cross on the back? Something involving a spy on the inside at Terminus? Other outside help beyond Carol and Ty? (MacGyver? MacGruber?) Does Judith save everyone with her secret zombie apocalypse baby powers? (Kidding. Unless it happens.)

We can’t wait to see what ingenuity the writers used to devise an escape plan for our merry band of misfits. Hopefully everyone in Team Post-Prison gets out safety, reunites with Judith/Carol/Tyreese/Beth and then does … whatever. Heads to Washington, D.C. with Eugene’s mission, perhaps. What else do they have to do? Terminus was their big “sanctuary” plan.

Who or what do you hope is involved in The Great Terminus Escape?

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
