[Warning: This story contains spoilers for the comic books on which AMC’s The Walking Deadis based.]

Something’s stumbling upstairs — an oddly foreign but familiar figure.

It’s not a new sensation in the world of AMC’s The Walking Dead, in which humans become monsters in the blink of an eye, or, more accurately, in the bite of an arm. But when it comes to the being hobbling through the top floor of a quaint Georgia household with a haunting but humble shuffle, there’s an unmistakable feeling that we’re in the midst of something new, even if it comes in the form of someone old: Rick Grimes, the hero of this tale, eyes slowly opening, body slowly rising as if from the dead.

The Atlanta Braves have been criticized for demonstrating very poor song choice on Thursday night when The Scorpions’ 1984 hit “Rock You Like a Hurricane” blasted out over the loudspeaker while they played the Miami Marlins at SunTrust Park in Georgia.
