WATCH: The Battle Lines Are Drawn Early In This “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 5 Preview

And they are drawn up to the brow, hunty.

RuPaul’s Drag Race returns after what feels like an eternity — especially since All Stars was (no tea, no shade) a bit of a disappointment —  on January 28 with a fifth season of tuckin’ and jivin’.

And as you can tell from the above preview of episode one, the queens are wasting no time in getting down to some serious, shady business. You can just feel the lights flicker as Coco Montrese — “the face-crack of the century”, according to archrival Alyssa Edwards — walks into the room.

There’s immediately talk of bamboozling and backstabbing as the two ladies have some unresolved issues and it’s clear from the jump that they’re going to get resolved…one way or another.

The fifth season of Rupaul’s Drag Race begins Monday January 28 at 9/8c. You can stay up-to-date on Drag Race exclusives by texting Ru at 22422 or get SMS updates here. And during the premiere, make sure to tweet @RuPaulsDragRace with the hashtag #DragRace to spill the tea live with the queens.
