Morning Open Thread

Episode 1 of "The Walking Dead: The Oath"

For the third year in a row, the producers of "The Walking Dead" have gotten a jump on the new season with a short series of webisodes telling short tales from other parts of the world of the "Walking Dead."

This year's three-webisode series is called "The Oath" and it follows the efforts of survivors Paul (Wyatt Russell) and Karina (Ashley Bell) as they search desperately for medical help after one of them becomes seriously wounded in a zombie attack. They finally meet up with a doctor (Ellen Greene) who may not have their healthiest interests at heart.

As always, the webisodes are directed by "Walking Dead" executive producer and makeup mastermind Greg Nicotero. So remember, blood and guts are this guy's specialty.

The new season of "The Walking Dead" debuts on October 13th.
