First of all, how INCREDIBLE was the premiere of The Walking Dead Season 5?
One thing I love about the show is how many hidden Easter Eggs and references FX guru Greg Nicotero slips in...and this is the most random Walking Dead Easter Egg yet.
During Rick & co.'s escape, they walk past this crate
It says: 'Ship to Horlicks University via Julia Carpenter'
Can you tell what it is yet? It's a nod to Creepshow, the George A. Romero horror anthology written by Stephen King, specifically the segment entitled 'The Crate.'
You see it when Rick and the gang go running towards the train car to let the crazy tattoo guy out... There’s a bunch of crates around Terminus. One of the crates in the foreground says 'Arctic Expedition Horlicks University, Attn: Julia Carpenter,' which was the crate from Creepshow.
We ended up not doing a tribute zombie in that episode, but we were able to get a little Romero nod in there just to keep up the love.
This is what's inside the crate in Creepshow...
I wouldn't expect this fella to show up in The Walking Dead, though!
Did you notice this blink-and-you'll-miss-it Walking Dead Easter Egg?
