The Walking Dead began production for Season 5 last week, and while photos from cast members have leaked on various social media sites, the first official production photo hadn’t been released until today.
At first glance, nothing seems to be interesting in the photo. You just have a bloody Rick Grimes staring earnestly at something, which seems to be a common occurrence in most Walking Dead episodes. But, if you look closer, there are a couple of important clues. First, look at the door that Rick is peaking out from. That maroon color of the door is the same color as the “A” train car that Rick and the majority of the cast were locked in at the end of the season four finale. So, is this photo of Rick possibly finding a way out of the death-trap boxcar?
Also, since this photo was released just one week from the start of production, we can safely assume it’s from the season five premiere.
The Walking Dead returns for season five on October 12th at 9/8c on AMC.
