So far in this season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, one woman’s sobriety journey, another’s introduction, and yet another’s smallish home have overwhelmed the narrative. There's another, grander drama on the horizon, though, that will hit the Housewives (like it did everyone else) harder than they ever could have imagined.

The arrival of the coronavirus pandemic is not far off in this season’s timeline, and the midseason trailer, which EW can exclusively reveal, teases what the lockdown will bring for the ladies.

“Quarantine didn’t just separate us,” Braunwyn ominously says in the clip. “It divided us.”

The teaser also offers glimpses of the cast’s self-shot, at-home confessionals; Shannon finding out she tested positive; Emily struggling to take care of a sick Shane; and a few of the ladies cooking together while wearing face shields.

After quarantine restrictions lifted, the cast resumed filming together and in (mostly outdoor) public places, so there’s room for more typical Housewives conflicts, too, like Elizabeth admitting to having a lifelong secret, Braunwyn apparently having a girlfriend, and what appears to be one particularly explosive beach day. Better stock up on tequila, because the rest of season 15 promises to be a wild ride.

Check out the clip, which will air following this week’s episode, above. The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
