It’s pretty obvious that The Walking Dead is building up to an epic battle between Rick’s gang at the prison and The Governor’s forces at Woodbury. Now some new pics from Sunday’s episode give us our first peek at the confrontation.

TV Line has posted three stills from Sunday’s episode, “Home,” showing Michonne wielding a gun (it probably has better range than her sword) and the Governor stalking his way through the grass.

They’re not in the same frame, but the backgrounds seem to match up, meaning the two are likely shooting at each other. Michonne is obviously outside the prison, and it seems the Governor finally came for a visit. After their last meeting in Woodbury, I’d look for him to be much more prepared this time around.

The writers have a knack for throwing out expectations out the window this season, regardless of how things played out in the comic book. It’ll be interesting to see how they handle the Governor’s attack, as it’ll likely play out for at least the next few episodes.
