Warning: Spoilers ahead

Break out your crossbow. “The Walking Dead” premiere is getting closer.

In an exclusive photo (above) from season six obtained by TheWrap, we see Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) preparing to square off against a host of walkers.

Season five saw the group being formed into consummate survivors by the world around them, nearly making some of the survivors into villains. To make it as far as they have, they have evolved into incredibly powerful people. But who have they become?

Season six starts with Alexandria’s safety shattered by multiple threats. To make it, the people of Alexandria will need to catch up with our survivors’ hardness while many of our survivors will need to take a step back from the violence and pragmatism they’ve had to embrace. These reversals won’t happen easily — or without conflict.

But now Rick’s group is fighting for something more than survival. They’re fighting for their home, and they will defend them at any cost, against any threat, even if that threat comes from within.

“The Walking Dead” returns to AMC on Oct. 11.
