The last time we saw Glenn (Steven Yeun), Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and the rest of the "Walking Dead" crew, they'd just barely escaped Hershel's farm with their lives and were holed up outside a massive prison complex. As we've all seen from the promotion leading up to the show's third season, the future for this group is behind bars.
The highly anticipated season premiere is tonight on AMC, and we'll finally get to see what's been going on inside that prison. Expect it won't be pretty.
Times TV critic Mary McNamara said the early episodes of Season 3 are a "glorious payoff" for the slower pace of Season 2's episodes on the farm. In "Walking Dead"-ese, that means a whole lot more zombie killing.
