The Walking Dead Season 5 trailer exploded all over Comic-Con last weekend, giving us our first proper look at the undead mayhem that's soon coming our way.

In fact, it might actually have given away more than we think. Below you find a trailer breakdown highlighting 5 potential plot spoilers for the new season.

1 - Cannibals Confirmed and Glenn for the chop?

We've long suspected that those bastards at Terminus have a taste for human flesh, and it looks like our worst fears have been confirmed.

If it's true that a picture can say a thousand words, this one would be saying "Dead" a thousand times - especially considering the rumors of Glenn's untimely demise:


  
  
  
  
  
  Here comes the boom!
Here comes the boom!

However, we again see Glenn later on in the trailer so he might find a way to get out of this one. Well, for now at least...

Camouflage Carol Breaks into Terminus

The explosive trailer seemed to suggest that Terminus gets overrun by walkers early on. My theory is Carol leads the undead there in order to help Rick and the group escape.

Unfortunately, one does not simply walk into Terminus.

Carol begs to differ. One does, if covered in blood and guts to disguise your tasty human scent:

Is this Carol going full walker to infiltrate Terminus?

Where have we seen this tactic before?

Father Gabriel Is Really Familiar to Comic Book Readers

Father Gabriel has a complex and dark back story, and from the evidence of the trailer a lot of this will be explored in the show.

The church is the same, for instance:


  
  
  
  
  
  It's hardly a welcoming place
It's hardly a welcoming place

And the iconic scene in which Gabriel reveals his dark secret will also be included:


  
  
  
  
  
  Let it all out Gabe

First Glimpse of DC

The group wants to head to DC to meet up with Eugene's scientist buddies and find the cure for the outbreak. But if this first look of the big city is anything to go by, it's in pretty bad shape.

Beth Is Alive! But for How Long?

It looks like all our theories about Beth's whereabouts - (She's dead! She's at Terminus! She's at Father Gabriel's church!) were wide off the mark.

We now know that she's alive... in an elevator shaft:


  
  
  
  
  
  "Hello? Is there anybody down there?"
"Hello? Is there anybody down there?"

With people who amputate arms with cheers wire:


  
  
  
  
  
  That's gotta sting
That's gotta sting

And cops who are the slap-happy law of some sort of New World Order:


  
  
  
  
  
  Welcome to the punch
Welcome to the punch

Here's [The Walking Dead](series:201193) Season 5 trailer in full. Give it a watch and let me know if there's anything I missed.

Authors Note: It seems I might have got my US cities all wrong and the van can be seen going off the bridge in Atlanta, not Washington DC. Thanks to all the top spotters who let me know.
