Fans of AMC's hit show "The Walking Dead" got a little taste of what to expect in the fifth season of the show, which airs next Sunday night.

The first four seasons of the show have captivated viewers with a gut-wrenching and powerful story line mixed with immaculate goriness and affects. Spoiler Alert: last season ended dramatically with Rick and the remaining survivors from his group, among others, reuniting at Terminus, only to get themselves locked in a train car.

Rick ended the season with a hopeful, and oh-so-powerful statement about the people of Terminus who locked them up.

He said, "They're going to feel pretty stupid when they find out they're screwing with the wrong people," leaving fans desperately craving the start of season five.

Tonight AMC released a brief preview of what season five hold, and fans will surely be in for a wild ride as the season progresses. The people of Terminus appear to be more evil than expected. He seams to leave them with one simple choice: join them on their way to Washington to cure and save humanity, or die.

Rick and the leader of Terminus definitely will not get along, and fights between the living will definitely ensue. Rick will struggle with his last attempts to hold onto his moral side.

Don't forget about Beth, either, who was kidnapped in front of Daryl's eyes last season. She will reemerge in an currently unknown location, and appears that she will try to fight her way out.

One thing is definitely certain for season five: there will be lots of walkers, lots of walker killing, and lots of blood and guts.

The Comic-Con trailer for the fifth season can be seen here:

The fifth season premiere of "The Walking Dead" airs Sunday, Oct. 12th at 9 p.m. on AMC.
