walking deadJuly, August, September ... OCTOBER! The premiere date for The Walking Dead Season 4 has been announced -- at last -- and it is ... October 13th!!! AND, even better than that, the very first trailer is out ... and ... whoa. This is gonna be one hell of a heavy season! Not that they all haven't been pretty damn heavy, but -- well, just check out this quote from Andrew Lincoln (Rick) about how his character's concern for son Carl (Chandler Riggs) will take center stage: "The relationship with Carl is integral to the beginning of the season from Rick. [Carl] turning into a sociopath at the end of the season woke him up to his parenting duties. You find Rick in a completely different place this season." 

OMG, did somebody just admit that Carl turned into a total sociopath?! He did say that out loud, right? (Cause that kid SCARY.) 

Anyway. 

After viewing the trailer approximately 87 times, it's clear to us that Carl's questionable mental health is just one of many super-disturbing issues Rick, Daryl & co. will be dealing with this season. Here are 3 more mysterious moments to obsess over for the next few months: 

1. Why is Carol running a daycare for young zombie-slayers?

2. What is that THING making Rick's brow all furrowed?

3. Who is that blonde and what's under the sheet?!

That last one is the most mysterious of all, if you ask me. But don't take my word for it -- watch the trailer! WATCH IT RIGHT NOW:

HEAVY, heavy stuff, right? What do you think??

Which moments from The Walking Dead Season 4 trailer will you obsess over until October?
