The bad news: we've got several long, arid months until season 4 of The Walking Dead returns this fall. The good news: AMC does a bang-up job of keeping interest high, even when the show's on a break. Between the info the network and cast members are sharing and the wonder of the Internet, I've got a pretty decent roundup of Walking Dead-related quotes, clips, images, and trivia to help fill that zombie-shaped hole in your heart.
From t-shirts to photobombs to teaser videos, here are 7 ways you can get your Walking Dead fix:
1) Read about Steven Yeun's (Glenn) hilarious fan interaction:
I was walking down the street one time in Atlanta, and this really cute, normal-looking girl was walking down the street, and she started walking towards me like a zombie. You could see that halfway through, she was like, "Oh, crap, I should not have done that." But she held the commit! She wanted to commit so she gets all the way up to me, and I’m just watching her, and in my head, I’m like, Wow this is embarrassing for you because it was over fifty feet of you doing this. And she gets up to me, and she goes, "I am so sorry that I did that, and I apologize, but I had to commit." I just was like, "Good job."
2) Enjoy Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon) and his Game of Thrones photobomb:
These two attendees at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo are the luckiest genre-show fans EVER. They were having their photo taken with Lena Headey and Peter Dinklage (Cersei and Tyrion Lannister from Game of Thrones) when Norman Reedus snuck in for an epic photobomb.

4) Buy this Walking Dead/Pulp Fiction-themed shirt called “Dixon Fiction":
5) Theorize over Lawrence Gilliard Jr's role in season 4: The Wire alum will be a series regular in season 4, playing Bob Stookey, a Woodbury resident and former Army medic who's deeply haunted by his past. Will he be like the comic book character -- a drunk who manages to save the Governor from Michonne?
6) Ponder the idea that Rick might die. While we wait for season 4 to get underway, it's probably best to start preparing for the inevitable losses. While group leader Rick seems like the character who's likely the safest from death, creator/ executive producer Robert Kirkman wants us to know that anyone could go at any time:
We've been saying that no one is safe on this show, and I wouldn't rule out seeing the death of Rick Grimes at almost any point. We really like to keep people guessing, and I could definitely see some interesting stories coming from that. While Rick has been a pretty solid leader, he's definitely made his share of mistakes.

Seriously on a scale from 1 to *bitchin' guitar riff* how great is Reedus's photobomb?
