Hey, so, what really went on with those plucky survivors during the months we didn't see them? It's understandable that a few months spent in a zombie apocalypse may cause a shift in priorities. But let's just say it: Rick has gone off the deep end, albeit in a very entertaining fashion. When we last left everyone at the end of the season premiere, one of our zombie-fighting friends suffered a bit of a flesh wound, and we met five more possible friends... or living human obstacles.
Spoilers after the jump, so consider yourself warned!

In case you haven't seen it already (and this post contains lots of spoilers after the jump, so you might want to hold off), AMC's The Walking Dead came back with a vengeance, picking up months after we saw the survivors fleeing Hershel's farm and Andrea meeting the warrior woman we now know is Michonne. A lot has changed, and if you're a reader of the comics, you'll know that some crazy, crazy stuff is about to go down. What has a few more months of the zombie apocalypse done to our "heroes"? The answer: very upsetting, but understandable things.
Since I'm going to be discussing things that happened in this episode, please assume that I'm, well, going to be talking about things that happened in this episode. And that means there are spoilers from this point on.

As they did for the season premiere of Breaking Bad
this summer, AMC will be streaming the third season premiere of The Walking Dead
online for all those frustrated Dish customers who still don't have AMC. It's only good for the one episode -- airing Sunday, October 14 at 9:00 PM EST) -- and then everyone will have to seek out less legal ways to watch the show (or just go to a friend's house). Visit the page especially for Dish customers
for more details. (via Bleeding Cool

Good news! AMC has all but confirmed a fourth season of The Walking Dead
-- by nonchalantly mentioning it while talking about something else entirely! In an announcement for not the show, but a blood drive for the American Red Cross
, a prize entailing a trip to the set during the show's fourth season was offered up. So, hopefully that's a sure thing that is definitely happening, because people are literally going to allow themselves to be partially exsanguinated to visit that freaking set. (via Arrow in the Head

If you're a regular reader of The Walking Dead
comic as well as a viewer of the show, then you won't be spoiled if you read about a recent and interesting statement
Sarah Wayne Callies made about Lori's fate on AMC's The Walking Dead
. But if you're not familiar with what happens in the comic (and you don't want to be spoiled), skip this story and remain in blissful ignorance. (via Superhero Hype

The creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman offered up this quote concerning the end of the series:
We have talked about an ending that we’d do if we ever got to that point, right before our joint suicide, but with the popularity of the comic, and now the show, I don’t see an end anytime soon.
So, that's a "No" on the end of the comic, right? Good to know.
