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.'

Nicotero explains:

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?


Did you notice the Creepshow reference?
