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 “Walking Dead” world.

If you need some kind of transition between the emotional high of the “Breaking Bad” finale and the return to the grim and gory world of “The Walking Dead” (as if “Breaking Bad” wasn’t grim and gory enough), then these webisodes serve as the perfect way to ease back in.

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 aid after one of them gets 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 in years past, the webisodes are directed by “Walking Dead” executive producer and makeup mastermind Greg Nicotero. So expect some really primo zombie effects. Blood and guts are this guy’s bread and butter, after all.
