It’s actually kind of important that you study up. The Walking Dead Season 3 ends Sunday, March 31 with Episode 16, “Welcome to the Tombs.” Until then, AMC is airing marathons of all three seasons — although not always perfectly in order — starting with the six episodes of Season 1 on Monday night.

It’s important to pay attention, at least when they re-air Season 3, because of this interesting Season 3 finale tease from executive producer David Alpert: "There's stuff in the finale specifically that's going to call back to the beginning of the season that will pay off for people who have been paying attention and are invested in the show,” he told told The Hollywood Reporter. “You don't need to have seen it but your experience of the show is going to be much more rewarded if you watch the first-half closely. That type of storytelling and emotional payoff we're going to give in the finale is exactly the thing that makes The Walking Dead so special and unique."

So watch closely when the first half of Season 3 re-airs. And why not go ahead and watch everything else closely, too. It’s good for the soul!
