"It’s very much going to focus on the story of Terminus,” Kirkman said of the October opener. “There’s a lot of big revelations that haven’t really come out that I think people are gonna be pretty startled by… We’ll definitely be defining those in some cool ways and confirming some theories and shooting down others."
Kirkman adds that the show hits “the ground running,” immediately dealing with situation of our heroes and heroines being “at the mercy of the people of Terminus.”
Look for new actors (such as Seth Gilliam) to make a big impact right away.
"We really kind of expand the story very rapidly, so I think this is going to be a pretty fast-paced season with quite a bit going on," Kirkman said.

This felt like a long time coming, but Rick was forced to kill his once best friend. On top of that, the undead version of Shane was eliminated by Carl in order to save Rick. Shane just wouldn't stay down.
Her storyline may have dragged on, but it was still a shock to see Sophia stumble out of the barn as a walker. It was a powerful way to end the midseaon finale of The Walking Dead Season 2, especially with Rick finishing her off for good.
She was crazy to begin with, but the fact that Carol killed Lizzie revealed just how dark the world has become. And it was a bold move by the show itself to not back out from such a controversial death.
This death was shocking made for the fact that viewers saw the reveal the same time as Daryl. Merle ended up a walker, but he still managed to do one last good deed in taking down some of the Governor's men. You even secretly wished he lived.
Lori's death was a true surprise not only because she went into labor after a walker attack, but Carl then was forced to kill her. The fact that it took place so early in The Walking Dead Season 3 made it even more surprising and revealed that truly no one was safe on the show.
He was the leader of Terminus and his surprising death was at the hands of Rickâs swinging machete. Not only did he not stick around to be an antagonist to the survivors, but it just goes to show that eating people always ends badly.
She was about to return to her group when Dawnâs gun went off during the intense prisoner exchange. She definitely grew since her time on the farm, and her death was an emotional gut punch to the survivors.
