Do you realize that we haven’t had any fresh the Walking Dead in our faces for over a month? And that, by the time the midseason premiere airs, we will have had to suffer through over two months of no new Dead? To forestall a fan riot, or at least a lot of grumpy tweets, AMC has today released the official poster for the second half of Season 5.
It features a big Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln),with tiny versions of mostly the backs of Our Gang–thanks, AMC, for having Norman Reedus turn around–and a seemingly carelessly discarded (I expect that was for artistry, not neglect) map, the one that Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) left for Rick a while ago, and that the beloved prodigal Morgan (Lennie James) found in the midseason finale.
