The Walking Dead Season 4 kicked off tonight, and although the action didn’t start until halfway through, we’ve already had our first fatalities of the season. The two deaths happened in rapid succession, and reminded us exactly why we love TWD so much.

First up was Beth Greene’s (Emily Kinney) new beau, Zack. Daryl Dixon and several others headed to the supermarket for a supply run, and when Bob Stookey reached for the booze and sent the shelf tumbling down, a herd of walkers descended on the group. Soon enough, one got a hold of Zack’s leg and he was a goner.

Next up was that dirty British lady. After coming across Rick in the woods she lured him back to camp and attempted to kill him before stabbing herself.

Lastly, newcomer Patrick died in a bizarre twist. He wasn’t bitten by a walker, but instead he was infected with a strange virus that turned him nonetheless. There’s our new threat! Seems to explain why Season 4, Episode 2 is called “Infected.”

RIP, ladies and gents. We miss you already!
