By now we all know that The Walking Dead loves including Easter Eggs and call backs throughout its episodes. Over the years The Walking Dead has had the ongoing theme of time, the repeated references to the bible and even the nods to former character's comments all cleverly intertwined into its episodes. However, none have been there as long as the show's steadily decaying title cards.

For the past seven years, every time a new seasons of begins, the previous season's title card has been replaced with one looking slightly more decayed, and Season 8 was no different:

To really get a good look at how the cards — and therefore the pre-apolcalypse world — have decayed over time, here's how it changed from Season 1 to Season 4:

Pretty cool, right? It's something small, but it succinctly shows what a wild, post-apocalyptic world the group are living in. Who knows what the title card will look like by the time the series ends — or if we'll even be able to read what they say.

Watch The Walking Dead when it returns to AMC with Episode 2, "The Damned" on Sunday, October 29 at 9pm ET
