Episode 510, “Them,” was one of the more bleak installments of Season 5 of AMC’s The Walking Dead where Rick and the small group of remaining survivors are more desperate than ever as they run low on energy and even lower on supplies on their long track on-foot north to Washington, D.C. Their hope is that something will be at our nation’s capital that will help them. They just need to stay alive to reach their destination.
At the end of Episode 510, a new character was introduced — Is he a good guy or a bad guy? Where did he come from? Why does he seem in better shape than Rick’s group? What are his intentions? AMC has released a sneak peek of the next episode, Episode 511 “The Distance,” in a teaser promo, as well as a clip where Rick interrogates the new guy.

We found out last month that Ross Marquand had been cast, with speculation that he’d be playing Aaron, a character from the comics, and it looks like that that’s who he’s playing.

The Walking Dead Season 5.2 Synopsis:
After the tragic events of the mid-season finale — as well as losing the possibility of a cure in Washington, DC — Rick Grimes’ band of survivors find themselves on the road, surviving day to day and trying to hold on to their shredded humanity and dwindling hope.
Stripped of security and without a direction for the future, some of the group near their breaking point, some find themselves hardened and cold and some just try to grasp on to what little they have left.
Though they are still breathing, the line between Rick’s group and the dead is starting to blur.
Could there be anything at this point that brings them back to life?
