Ahead of The Walking Dead’s seventh season, the show teased who might die at the hands of Negan and his barbed wire bat, Lucille. But now that Rick has had enough, the show is revealing shells of what he and his group might end up reaping.

The Walking Dead released a series of posters on Facebook to start getting fans excited for the second half of the season, and they already have people scratching their heads. The photos—which don’t explicitly showcase a single cast member or Lucille—are mysterious, and the tagline for the second half of season 7 only brings up more questions: “Worlds collide. Prepare to rise up and fight Sunday, February 12.”

The mid-season finale didn’t have much of a body count in regards to the characters we truly cared about, but now that Alexandria, Hilltop, and possibly the Kingdom are planning to revolt against Negan and the Saviors, it won’t be too long before that grave will be filled. (And will we see Oceanside, the community that Tara encountered in season 7, again?) There’s multiple photos of nuts and other food that you need to crack to open, and chances are we’ll see that dynamite explode before all is said and done.

Or maybe every community will just gather around and smash the nuts and fruit in a big multi-settlement dinner. (One can hope, anyway.)

The Walking Dead returns on Feb. 12 at 9pm ET.
