Where We Left Off: Rick was forced to murder Shane — but he came back as a zombie! After narrowly escaping a zombie attack at Hershel's farm, Rick admitted that everyone is already infected and can become a zombie after death. Also, Rick's the boss, no questions asked. Meanwhile, Andrea was saved by a mysterious hooded figure.
What's Next: The new season begins with the survivors trying to take a prison back from the zombies and turn it into their new safe haven. But they'll have to battle The Governor (David Morrisey), who also wants to take control of the location. Andrea will become fast friends with her savior, the katanna-wielding Michonne (Danai Gurira). Plus: the one-armed Merle will reunite with his brother Daryl, and that ominous helicopter from Season 1 will once again play an important role.
