The Walking Dead Season 6 Episode 5 Spoilers: What Happens in “Now?”


Update (11/8/15): Watch a sneak peak and promo for "Now" below, and get ready to revisit Alexandria and more! 

Original Story (10/30/15): As hard as it may be to believe, next Sunday, November 8, marks the debut of The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 5, meaning we’ll be more than a quarter of the way through the season.

We don’t know have much info about the installment just yet, but we’ll know a lot more once Episode 4: “Here's Not Here” airs this Sunday and we get the standard promo and duo of sneak peeks.

Here’s what we know so far: Episode 5 is called “Now” and the synopsis is just as vague and brief as what we’re used to getting, which leaves plenty to be desired.

The synopsis for “Now” is as follows: “Following a number of setbacks, the mood in Alexandria grows grim for the sheltered citizens.”

We told you it’s short, but luckily we have some context in that we know the events of Episode 5 will take us back to Alexandria after a few weeks away. Last we saw the gated community they were being savagely attacked and decimated by the Wolves, so the synopsis’ somber tone is pretty appropriate.

Speaking about the later half of the season, TWD actor Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, said, “[Episodes] 5, 6, 7, 8 — it just keeps building and building. You’ll see that the show opens up. We’ve been looking internally for so long, it’s like everybody lifts their eyes to the horizon this season and it opens up a whole new world. It’s amazing.”

He added, “The next eight episodes are all huge. I mean they’re kinetic, but also the scale of it. It feels like a season finale each episode and the ambition of each episode. They’re very different.”

OK, we’re officially counting down to the midseason finale!

The Walking Dead Season 6 airs Sunday nights at at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
