The Walking Dead Season 5 is just days away from its grand premiere and fans are anxious to know more about their favourite Daryl Dixon and his possible romance with Beth.

The series premiere begins right after the Season 4 finale which ended with the survivors trapped in the Terminus. However, they will escape from what appears to be a human slaughter house managed by the cannibals.

There are numerous speculations about some major character deaths and possible linkups between Daryl and his close friend Beth.

However, the rumour of the crossbow-wielding warrior being gay broke many hearts, because if that was so the blooming love affair in the zombie infected land was far from possible.

Not anymore, as there are rumours of the duo getting involved in a romantic relationship after their reunion in AMC's zombie horror drama.

"I don't know, you have to wait and find out," Emily Kinney (who plays Beth's character) told Entertainment Weekly.

However, Kinney teased her fans about some special feelings between the two zombie apocalypse survivors. "I would say last season what you saw, there's definitely a connection, and a connection that's growing. And they care about each other a lot, and so there's definitely something really special there."

Beth was kidnapped by some unknown assailants in Season 4 after which fans started assuming that Daryl and Carol could be the next romantic couple in TWD. But the Season 5 promo revealed that Beth is alive and trapped in a creepy hospital.

Apparently, Rick Grimes and his group of survivors will manage to spot Hershel Greene's once-fragile youngest daughter after they escape the Terminus.

Meanwhile, in its review of the No Sanctuary episode, the Boston Herald wrote that show runner Scott M Gimple and director Greg Nicotero have delivered an ingenious premiere episode that "operates on so many tracks simultaneously."

"Included in the proceedings, as always, is a rumination on the spiritual price one is willing to pay to cling to life in the most extreme of circumstances. That has always been the underlying double meaning in the show's title, which applies every bit as much to the humans struggling to survive as to the slow-moving monsters whose heads explode so artfully," the review report added.

The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on Sunday, October 12, in the US and on Monday, October 13 in the UK.
