Six months have passed since the final episode of Season 6, an episode that left a bad taste in the mouths of many as they were forced to wait to see who Negan would choose. The episode ended on a first person perspective of the victim, Lucille coming down on his or her head, watching as the world faded to black. It felt, in many ways, to be an unfair ending to a season that was – to be honest – rather uneven at times. And while cliffhangers have a long and storied tradition in Hollywood, it still felt a little cheap. So with tonight’s big reveal, is all forgiven in Walking Dead Land?

While last season opened with something of a whimper, full of foreshadowing and suggestion, tonight’s Season 5 premiere was all about the bang. From beginning to end, it was a non-stop adrenaline rush, as the action never seemed to let up. And the episode ended with a very big reveal, and one that gives a hint as to where things will be heading. Season 4 was perhaps the most consistently solid season of The Walking Dead so far, so Season 5 has some big shoes to fill; if tonight was any indication, they’re starting off on the right foot – it should be a fun ride.
