‘The Walking Dead’: Fans Freak Out Over Carol In Season 5 Premiere

Mon, October 13, 2014 7:51am EDT by 1 Comment

Let’s be honest, Carol was the true hero of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 5 premiere. Fans of the hit show totally freaked out by Carol’s kick butt attitude and her special moment with Daryl.

All hail Carol (Melissa McBride)! The Walking Dead season 5 kicked off on Oct. 12 and Carol proved she’s not to be messed with. Walking Dead fans totally lost it when they saw this new side to Carol. From her insane infiltration of Terminus to her emotional reunion with the group, Carol is back and better than ever.

Carol On ‘The Walking Dead’: Fans Freak Out

Seriously, can we all just worship at the feet of Carol now? The character has come a long way from season one and it’s been the best transition of any character on the show. When she shot up the gas tank to invade Terminus, our jaws dropped. Then, she covered herself in zombie guts to get inside.

We may need a minute to fully process her reunion with Daryl and Rick. We were shedding lots of tears. The Walking Dead fans, including us, were wowed by Carol’s actions in the season premiere. Check out the tweets!

‘The Walking Dead’: Will There Be A Change In The Ricktatorship?

Could Rick’s run as group leader finally be coming to an end? (Can we just elect Carol?) Josh McDermitt, who plays Eugene, spilled to about that possibility. 

“I think there’s a lot of A-type personalities in that train car,” he told “And its kind of interesting to see who emerges to be the leader. If Rick continues to be the leader, if he struggles with that, or if Abraham who is also an alpha male kind of takes over.”

Things are sure to get interesting over the course of the season. We can’t wait to watch it all unfold!

The Walking Dead airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.

HollywoodLifers, what did you think of the season 5 premiere of The Walking Dead? Is Carol the new queen of the zombie apocalypse? Did you cry as much as we did when her and Daryl reunited? Let us know your thoughts on the premiere!
