AMC Studios posted an official promotional photo for “The Walking Dead” season 5 that hinted the death of Daryl Dixon.

The photo was posted on “The Walking Dead’s” official Facebook page last week that showed cast members Rick Grimes, Carl Grimes, Michonne, Glenn Rhee, Maggie Greene, Sasha, Sgt. Abraham Ford, Tara Chambler, Ford, Bob Stookey, Eugene Porter, and Rosita Espinosa. It is noticeable that Daryl is not present in the photo. This fuels the speculations that Daryl will die next season.

This is not the first time that it was hinted that Daryl will be killed off next season. Actor Norman Reedus, who plays the role of Daryl, tweeted once “just wanted to say thank you for all the nice people that are waiting outside of set when we get off work. thank you guys for all the love”.

Moreover, show creator Robert Kirkman casually revealed Daryl’s death in a previous interview. “There’s a lot going on with Terminus,” revealed Kirkman to Entertainment Weekly. “In our premiere episode of season 5 we’re going to give a ton of answers of who the people of Terminus are, what they’re doing, why they’re doing it, what’s going on with them. And by the end of that episode you’re going to have a much better understanding of what’s going on with them and why they’re so important to the show. Oh, and Daryl dies.”

After watching this video explaining the theory behind time travel in “Donnie Dark”, it got me thinking, what if the movie “28 Days Later” had a certain connection with this time travel theory?

My question, is regarding “the 28 days” time frame that is mentioned in this film. Could it be mere coincidence that the movie “28 Days Later” is based on the same idea? Meaning that the “the artifact” is the “virus” that infects mankind which creates a “tangent universe”. Since the “artifact” is a virus that not only infects but “kills” “living” things, there cannot be a “living receiver”. I mean everybody can be a “living receiver”. It is said that the “living receiver” who is closest to the “artifact” when it enters the “Primary Universe”, can bring that “artifact back to where it came from.

In the movie “28 Days Later” the “living receiver(s)” is “mankind”, once in contact with the “artifact” AKA “the virus”, it would kill the “living receiver”. Making mankind “Dead Receivers”, thus bringing an end to the “Primary Universe” and making a permanent “tangent universe” that is on a “continuous time loop” of an epidemic zombie apocalypse.

Before I get to my theory on “The Walking Dead” connection, I just want to point out the subtle connection with the movie “Groundhog Day”. The holiday Groundhog Day is on February 2nd, that being said, don’t you think that it is interesting that the month of February mostly has “28 days” in the month and sometimes has “29 days” depending on the year being a “Leap Year”? Just something to think about when talking about “time travel” and being stuck in a “loop”.

The people who brought us Sharknado are now tackling the zombie apocalypse with a new show called Z Nation, and it’s everything you think it would be. The new series is the network’s answer to AMC’s The Walking Dead and while the show doesn’t have Daryl Dixon, it does have that guy from Lost. Syfy just released the first full trailer for their new zombie fare, which debuts this Fall and follows a group of survivors three years after a zombie virus has plagued the nation. Their goal: To get the lone survivor of the plague from New York to California where a viral lab is waiting to harvest the antibodies in his blood.

Sounds pretty good right? Don’t worry, all of the classic Syfy tropes you’ve come to love are still there. Sh*tty CGI effects? Check. Corny acting? Check check. But hey, it’s zombies and we still have two months to go before we get to see Rick Grimes and the gang so we’ll take it. Also, did we mention zombie babies?

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 5 Teaser Image 760x428

All this week Telltale has been ramping up anticipation for their upcoming season finale The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 5 “No Going Back”. They have been asking fans who “their Clementine” is using the hashtag #MyClementine. It all culminated today with a tweet that released the first teaser image from The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 5 and asked fans a new question, “who will YOU become?”

“Who will YOU become?” The Walking Dead Season 2 Finale: ‘No Going Back
Special Trailer Coming Soon!

The teaser image, which can be viewed above, seems to share a lot about the story of the season finale episode to the popular point-and-click game. If you aren’t caught up on the series then let this be your spoiler warning. The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 5 will pick up right after the explosive cliffhanger from Episode 4 “Amid the Ruins”. 

As we last left Clementine, she and her group were being held at gunpoint by a bunch of other survivors. Guns went off and the screen cut to credits. Who will make it out of the gunfight alive is a big question left as we head into Episode 5. It seems like along with the obvious survivor of Clementine, Rebecca’s baby made it out with Clem possibly tasked with taking care of the baby alone.

Season 5 runs uninterrupted in two eight-episode halves as we suspect, the calendar of TWD events should look something like this:

Season 5, Episode 1 (season premiere): October 12 at 9 p.m. ET

Season 5, Episode 2: October 19

Season 5, Episode 3: October 26

Season 5, Episode 4: November 2

Season 5, Episode 5: November 9

Season 5, Episode 6: November 16

Season 5, Episode 7: November 23

Season 5, Episode 8 (midseason finale): November 30

For some additional context, remember that TWD Season 4 kicked off on October 13, 2013 and the midseason finale aired on December 1.

While we don’t have any episode titles yet (though we can expect the premiere’s moniker to be revealed any day now) this certainly seems like a reliable schedule for the first half of the season. What’s more? Our tentative calendar puts the midseason finale just three days after Thanksgiving, making for one hell of a week!

Speaking of the overall structure of the fifth season, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd recently said, “We always have one sort of overarching arc, but there are distinct natural ends to particular arcs that fall during the midseason finale and pick up again in the midseason premiere.”

Does our proposed schedule make sense to you, or did we forget something? Tell us your own thoughts and theories below!

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on October 12 at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.

One thing is certain…The Walking Dead shows no signs of lightening up as it approaches middle age (in TV years, that is). If anything, season four is the darkest and most violent yet. While not as great as season three (the series high point so far), these 16 episodes further confirm that there’s no better TV horror out there.

The story picks up several months after the end of season three, when our growing group of survivors managed to defeat The Governor’s plans to take over or wipe them out. Still living in the prison, life is reasonably idyllic for awhile, with everyone content to make this place home. Rick (Andrew Lincoln) has since removed himself as the defacto leader and hung up his guns, content to be a farmer and father while an appointed council makes the decisions. But increasing zombie hordes and a lethal flu virus once again has them fighting for their lives, not-to-mention someone in the camp whose been feeding small animals to these things. Soon after, The Governor returns with a new army for another deadly assault on the prison, forcing everyone to flee, who end up in splintered groups.

There’s a new zombie drama coming to basic cable: Syfy’s Z Nation is a story of a band of survivors trekking across the country in the wake of an apocalyptic zombie plague, and the first full trailer is below. Syfy can only hope the show will deliver a healthy fraction of the audience that tune in to see TV’s highest-rated entertainment series—AMC’s The Walking Dead. There’s no Daryl Dixon, but there are zombie babies.

The 13-episode Z Nation picks up three years after a zombie virus has decimated the country and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. More from the official description: “Although the antibodies he carries are the world’s last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all.With humankind’s survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.”

Sounds promising, but can it compare to Walking Dead? The series stars Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch, Kellita Smith, Anastasia Baranova, Russell Hodgkinson, and Keith Allan. The series premiere is Friday, Sept. 12 at 10 p.m.

The Walking Dead season 5 will be different from the other seasons in exploring the world as its become in the show in a new way.

So far most of the action has been in Atlanta and the region, with little insight into what’s happening with the rest of the world or even the United States.

Now an executive producer, Tom Luse, gives insight into the exploration that will be seen in season 5.

“I think our journey this season, especially at the beginning, is going to show the scale of the world that we’re living in in a way that we haven’t done before,” he said in an interview posted on AMC’s website.

“That is the most interesting thing. We’re showing many aspects of what has been going on for the last couple of years that we haven’t had an opportunity to show before.”

The trailer makes it look like the group finally heads to Washington D.C. after Gareth lets them go in order to accompany them to see if they can find a cure for the zombies.

Also, Beth is in a hospital somewhere. Some have speculated that the hospital is part of the Alexandria safe zone as seen in the comics.

Luse also said that he and others working on the show have a big job.

“I would say that it has become a 52-week-a-year job for us. Sometimes we prepare the new season before the previous season is over,” he said.

The Walking Dead: Could Daryl Dixon be gay?
Will Daryl’s sexuality be discussed in the next series? (Picture: Fox)

Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead is a man of mystery. Aside from ponchos and crossbows, we’re really not sure what he’s into.

Carol’s admirably up-front flirting made him squirm, and while Beth has set her sights on him, he seems to be occupying some awkward middle-ground between paternally protective and Lolita-style impropriety.

Could his apparent indecision be because he bats for another team altogether?

In a question sent into The Walking Dead #130, a reader asked creator Robert Kirkman if there’s any chance of Daryl being gay.

Kirkman certainly didn’t dismiss the idea. ‘All I can say,’ Kirkman wrote, ‘is that it’s been discussed. We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing… we’ll tackle it in the show.’

He went on to add that producer AMC ‘absolutely would’ allow Daryl to come out.

All this could simply be fan-baiting to drum up anticipation for the start of season five. A certain vocal contingent of fans are already convinced that Daryl is gay, and actor Norman Reedus has been known to gleefully play into the rumours by posting seriously bromantic pictures of him and co-star Andrew Lincoln on his Twitter profile.

But these rumours came from somewhere, and the show is certainly not devoid of hints that Daryl might be gay. Read more... (486 words, 3 images, estimated 1:57 mins reading time)

A game based in the world of another game. It’s not Gameception, it’s Walking Dead Pinball from Zen Studios.

Zen Studios, if you are not aware, is the developer behind Marvel Pinball, Star Wars Pinball, and, as of later this month, The Walking Dead Pinball.

Based on Telltale Games’ mega-hit The Walking Dead game series, The Walking Dead Pinball features characters and locations iconic to the game’s first season. As a unique twist to the typical pinball game, The Walking Dead Pinball utilizes choice-driven gameplay which, much like Telltale’s game, has players making tough decisions like who lives and who dies.

“As huge fans of Telltale Games, we are extremely honored to be able to work with them to bring our fans a memorable, authentic pinball experience based on The Walking Dead,” Zen Studios said in a blog post. A host of screenshots that accompanied the announcement revealed a handful of board locations: the Motel, Everett’s pharmacy, and the train tracks where…well, where sad things happened.

The Walking Dead Pinball is set to release for iOS and Android devices August 28th.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima and Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro are teaming up to produce Konami’s next big horror game.

At Gamescom 2014, Kojima directed gamers towards a free game, “P.T.” on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 4.

The game is supposedly produced by a “7780s Studio,” but as it turns out, it is really a “playable trailer” for the upcoming Konami horror game, Silent Hills.

“P.T.” is a first-person puzzler that sees the player walking through the same stretch of hallway in endless loops until the player can trigger the right clues and scares.

The only way to trigger these scenes and clues is by pressing R3 on the controller to “zoom in” on whatever the player thinks is a game prompt.

After completing the game, the player will get to view the trailer, which shows a man walking down an empty, desolate street, before Kojima and Del Toro’s name pop up.

The man then turns to face the camera and lo and behold, it is The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus, or perhaps a character bearing his likeness.

The screen fades to white, and the words “Silent Hills” flash forward, before the video/game ends.

Kojima had tweeted out in April 2013 that he wanted to do “3D capture Ryan Gosling and Norman Reedus and make game with them,” there might be a possibility that Gosling does feature in the final game.

It’s difficult to discern whether I’m becoming desensitized to the heart-breaking casualties occurring what feels like every few minutes or if the constantly deadly situations we find ourselves in just no longer merit that level of emotion. I mean, how many times can you be saddened by secondary characters’ deaths? It all just becomes … numbing after a certain extent.

Such as it is with Episode 4 of Telltale Games’ “The Walking Dead: Season 2.” Death is never easy, and its presence is meant to cause a certain level of emotional pain. But when everyone is dying faster than new villains appear, you have to wonder: Is there even a point to it anymore? Or is just for shock value now? Are we meant to make friends only to lose them, only to leave heroine Clementine in even more pain? At this rate, she’ll be on her own before too long, stabbing everyone in her wake to prevent herself from becoming friends with them.

Without getting any more graphic (or story-spoiling), let it just be said your choices in this episode may result in an unusually large number of your group dying. Your decisions allow (or force, depending on how you look at it) Clementine to make some serious gruesome choices this time around. It’s tough enough having to manage the survival of a young girl during a violent zombie apocalypse without having to muddle through increasing morally challenging life-or-death decisions.

Let’s just say, “Amid the Ruins” is not a smooth ride.

Talking about “The Walking Dead” Season 5, showrunner Scott M. Gimple talked to AMCTV and he compared Season 4 to Season 5.

Gimple explained that Season 4′s second part was all about the characters being separated after the prison destruction. He added that in the new Season the characters are “not that separated.” However, Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride), baby Judith, Tyreese (Chad Coleman) and Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) are not with the group.

Gimple stated that things will be quite “brutal” and it is going to be extremely difficult for the characters. However, they have each other now, which is a good sign.

“The Walking Dead” Season 5, episode 1 airs Sunday, October 12 on AMC.

In an interview with Robert Kirkman at the Fox International Breakfast at San Diego Comic-Con, The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln offered up an interesting perspective on how Season 5 would be different.

“How is it different? There’s zombies on sharks throwing snakes this year,” said Lincoln.

After Lincoln’s little joke, Kirkman scolded him, “I specifically told you not to tell about the zombies on sharks throwing snakes, but that is going to be a huge mid-season finale.”

When Kirkman asked where the sharks came from, Lincoln joked, “Daryl Dixon’s underwear. No, sorry, those are the crabs.”

After that shocking revelation, Lincoln got more serious. “I think that this first episode is the strongest, most complete episode that we’ve done. It’s full of action, the biggest action sequence that we’ve ever attempted. But it’s also got one of the most incredible narrative scripts, and one of the coolest after credits coda.”

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on Sunday, October 12 at 9 PM ET on AMC.

With the official trailer of Walking Dead: Season 5 releasing at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, it was just a matter of days before the folks on the internet turned it into a Lego trailer. The new Lego trailer is out, and it is as awesome as the original trailer itself. If not more!

The trailer is extremely detailed with all the actions and emotions and dialogues from the original. You also have Rick with his stubble and bloody brows, Abraham and his red head and Michonne with his dreadlocks. Oh! There’s also Lego Rick holding Lego Baby Judith and a guest appearance.

On a serious note, with Walking Dead returning, fans have all kinds of questions in their mind, one of the biggest concerns being Carl losing his eye. In the comic books, Carl gets hit in a wild shooting and ends up losing his right eye and half of his face. He also suffers memory loss and ends up forgetting things like his mother’s death in the prison.

The show makers with their habit of inter-changing major storylines between characters, there’s possibility that Carl may not end up losing his eye. But fans think it is an extremely crucial detail in Carl’s character development as this event helps him toughen up.

Shippers may want to find someone else to pair Norman Reedus’ character Daryl Dixon with.

After years of speculation that “The Walking Dead” character might gay, creator Robert Kirkman addressed the rumor head-on earlier this week and said that storyline has been discussed.

“All I can say is that it’s been discussed,” Kirkman wrote in his latest “Letter Hacks” column in the comic book’s Issue #130. “We have very specific ideas about Daryl’s sexuality (or the seeming lack thereof), and if there’s ever a quiet period in the show where he’s not consistently distracted by crossbowing … we’ll tackle it in the show.”

This was in response to a fan who asked, “I feel like if you had your way that Daryl would turn out to be gay … so the real question is, would AMC let that fly?”

Kirkman stated “for the record, (AMC) absolutely would” allow the character to be gay.

The show has side-stepped many Daryl Dixon romantic storylines, including those with Carol or Beth.

A character named Jesus (aka Paul Monroe) — Rick Grimes’s ally — turned out to be gay in the comic book, but Daryl was created for the TV show and doesn’t exist in the comic book universe.

Issue #130 was released on Aug. 13 and season five of “The Walking Dead” premieres October 12 on AMC.
