Season five of The Walking Dead
follows Rick (Andrew Lincoln)'s group as they continue to fight for survival. The series picks up where last season left off: Beth (Emily Kinney) has been kidnapped, and the rest of the group, except Carol (Melissa McBride), Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman), and baby Judith, has been locked in the boxcar at Terminus, where they soon learn that Terminus is no sanctuary, but made up of murderous cannibals. Carol may be their only hope.
The first part of the season also introduces the character of Father Gabriel (Seth Gabriel) who joins the group on their journey.
The next part of the story focuses on Beth's rescue, during which the group splits as Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) agree to follow Abraham (Michael Cudlitz), Eugene (Josh McDermitt), and Rosita (Christian Serratos) to D.C.
