"The Walking Dead" returns for its fifth season of zombie mayhem on Sunday (October 12), which is the perfect time to take a fond look back at the cast from the very first season of AMC's hit show, before it even premiered.
So here they all are hanging out by a swimming pool, literally the most incongruous place we could imagine the usually disheveled post-apocalyptic survivors, from a photocall at Cannes on October 5, 2010.
Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) smiling in the sunlight, blissfully unaware of what is about to happen to them.
Hey Past-Rick! Your hair will never look this neat, or your face this shaven ever again.
Lovable talking bear Robert Kirkman (a.k.a. the creator of "The Walking Dead"), definitely looking comfortable near water/in sunlight.
Flashback to when all the walkers were hot models with a liiiiitle bit of blood on their faces.
Lori creating a potent visual metaphor for her upcoming choice between Rick and Shane. The guy hiding in the bottom left of the picture represents Carl.
