"We don't know what's coming next," a character intones during the new teaser for the upcoming fifth season of "The Walking Dead." Based on the clip's ambiguous imagery and super-short running time, viewers don't know, either -- but it seems that they should be afraid.
Marked by anguished screams and imagery of ominous, gas mask-wearing folks, it seems that there's some serious mayhem awaiting Rick and his people at Terminus, the mysterious settlement at which the group arrived -- and was detained -- at the end of season four. Based on fan speculation, the population of Terminus is believed to be (SPOILER) a group of cannibals, and it certainly seems like someone is about to become dinner in this clip.
There are also very brief glimpses of Rick and Daryl hiding in the shadows, as well as what appears to be a person lying on a table, with someone else hunched over them. Who are those people, and what are they doing? Whatever the answer, it's most likely pretty unappetizing.
Season five of "The Walking Dead" premieres on AMC on October 12.
