The trailer for Season 5 of AMC’s The Walking Dead debuted at Comic-Con on Friday — and it features new series regular Gareth, a long trek towards Washington to cure the epidemic, and plenty of blood-spattering human-on-zombie violence. Yep, there’s guns, a crossbow, a sword, a firehose, a baseball bat — and that’s just the beginning.

The new season will debut on October 12.

How will you prepare for the coming zombie tide? (Don’t kid yourselves, we all know it’s coming.) Axes are usually a good choice for decapitation. Guns don’t seem to work that well. Stakes are for vampires. What about perfume?

This video from Reactions: Everyday Chemistry explores the possibility of creating a scent that would disguise living humans as dead bodies, fooling zombies who always seem so sensitive to the smell of flesh. Now we can smell just like them and safely wander among the enemy!

The key to the cologne is the combination of two chemicals, scientist Raychelle Burks tells us. The aptly-named putrescine and cadaverine, produced by the body just after death, are what make the scent of a rotting corpse so smelly. Add in a little methane, and voila! Smell just like a zombie. Just don’t try to pull this trick before the zombie apocalypse.

Zombies Emerge from New York Sidewalk Grates to Promote ‘The Walking Dead’

Don't worry, they're just actors promoting the Walking Dead

New Yorkers can’t catch a break. First a “devil baby” in a remote-controlled stroller terrorized residents to promote the horror flick Devil’s Due last month. Now, The Walking Dead has hired actors dressed like zombies to promote the hit AMC thriller. In this video of the prank, watch their “bloodied” fingers and arms creep out of the sidewalk grates and startle passersby. New episodes of the show start Sunday, Feb. 9 — at least for the people who made it past the zombies alive.
