Anyone want to know just how effective a katana sword is for killing zombies? Judging from this sneak peek of The Walking Dead Season 3, let’s just say that loose zombie heads will be about as common as miraculously sexy post-apocalyptic jeans come October.

Towards the very end of AMC’s special TWD weekend (July 8), The Talking Dead featured this dialogue-free killer clip from the upcoming season. In it, we finally get to see Michonne in action, as she quickly tricks and kills three walkers in quick succession inside yet another abandoned drugstore.

At the end of the clip, we see that Michonne went there looking for packets of aspirin. And on The Talking Dead, comic creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman hinted at why Michonne would need such a seemingly innocuous item.

He alluded to the first and last time we saw Michonne on the Season 2 finale, and who she was with. Michonne, of course, was standing over Andrea, who was injured from the zombie uprising, and had lost her gang. Could Michonne just be trying to help mend Andrea’s injury? Hopefully she has something a little stronger than aspirin!

Watch the sneak peek below.
