Are Rick and his fellow survivors about to catch a much-needed break?

TVLine has exclusively obtained the title of The Walking Dead‘s Season 4 premiere, and it points to both a lull in the zombie war and a time jump.

According to sources, Episode 401 — penned by new showrunner Scott M. Gimple — currently bears the title, “30 Days Without an Accident.”

What does it mean?! Herewith are some possible interpretations (some obvious, some less so):

* The show will skip ahead at least one month following the events of the Season 3 finale.

* Rick’s controversial decision to relocate the denizens of Woodbury to the prison is paying off on the safety front (i.e. 30 days without a zombie attack). It’s also creating a potentially deadly false sense of security.

* Rick’s screws are starting to tighten (i.e. 30 days without seeing dead people).

* The gang stumbles on a potential new home base, where the current residents are tracking the number of days since the last attack on a chalk board.
