You’ve waited patiently and developed severe levels of anxiety after the mid-season finale of “The Walking Dead” with its nothing less than a “HOLY SH*T” moment at the climax and if you have not yet seen that for some strange reason, be happy that I am not willing to spoil it for you. Now the waiting is over and the hit series returns to give us the rest of Season Five, check out the poster below. I like the premise “The New Worlds Gonna Need Rick Grimes”. That sounds ominous to me. Do you agree?
Below are the casting parts for the first half of Season 5 and as you might expect with TWD, there are a few that are no longer wandering the long road to whatever lies ahead as the second act begins. I’ve left them in placeto not ruin for those folks who are super late to the viewing game.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve admitted that there are times when I am finding the storyline to be too dragged out with “The Walking Dead” but the first part of Season 5 had some really great and of course shocking moments. As expected we start yet another season with a few new survivors along with a few less but you will have to sit through the shows to know who those were since I hate being a spoiler. I’m looking forward to learning how the group handles what went down in the mid-season finale and where it leads them in terms of their own individual head space. It’s optimistic of me to think that any kind of better times lie ahead but who knows. What are your own reader thoughts? Are you still following the show or have you given up on it already for some reason or another. Let me know in the comments section below. You can follow along the happenings of the television show via its official Wiki entry and be warned that if you are out somewhere when it premiers, the best advice is to stay off of Facebook until you get home to watch it. I have witnessed far too many people ruining the show for their friends list despite them asking that details not be chimed in at the very last second of the airing. Some refuse to listen and well, that is just a dick move. I just click the “unfollow” button for those types to have a little more chance than others. Perhaps you should do the same if you are in that same boat 🙂
