We can't wait for season four, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't take some time to look back at the madness that was season three.

The last season of AMC's megahit The Walking Dead was the most plot-heavy year of the show so far, and that's really saying something. We said goodbye to favorite characters, watched a lot of incidental characters get munched on by Walkers, met plenty of new enemies, drew plenty of battle lines and set up an entirely new paradigm for the fourth season. It's a lot to process, especially if you haven't revisited it in a while.

So, in the spirit of helping you catch up while savoring the chance to relive all the blood, betrayal and body count of season three ourselves, we prepared this handy little guide featuring the key developments each episode from last season had to offer.

[Warning; Spoilers ahead!]

So, if you remember Lori died, but forgot how it happened, we've got your answer. If you remember the Governor attacked the prison, but not how it turned out, we've got your answer. If you simply can't remember the fate of T-Dog (OK, seriously, who doesn't remember the fate of T-Dog?), we've got your answer. 

Check out the gallery below for a quick Walking Dead refresher course, and take the opportunity to ponder many of the plot questions we'll have to contend with as season four begins. When will the Governor show up again? How will all those new people at the prison fit into the group? Is Carl about to become a full-blown sociopath?

Find out when The Walking Dead returns this Sunday at 9/8C on AMC.
