Okay, let’s get something straight... I’m sick and tired of this crap.
I’m sorry for all you people on here that are saying we need to get over Beth. That the writer’s don’t owe us anything and that we need to stop calling them out on stuff. FIRST OFF. GET OFF OUR FUCKING TAG IF YOU THINK IT’S SO RIDICULOUS. Still there? Mmkay. Warning: A lot of this info is redundant to TD members
1. They did put a lot of Beth quotes, references, and reminders leading up to the finale (even within at some points). EVERYONE NOTICED, not just us.
2. They did make us think Tyreese’s burial was Beth’s. They did this by showing us Maggie crying by Beth, but it ended up being Tyreese’s instead hence his hat on the cross. No second grave. I’m sorry for thinking that was a bit misleading. Nothing like that has ever happened on the show involving a character death.
3. Now for the Gunshot wound to the head placement: Say what you will, it doesn’t make sense if a gun is at waist level, just getting pulled out of a holster at the time of the shot and it doesn’t go through the abdomen, stomach, or up under her chin. It’s not like she was looking face down at the gun. Does it matter where she got shot? To us, it means a lot. It means that she wasn’t shot all the way up through her head, she was hit in a still very serious bad spot but hell, Carl (in the comic books) survived getting half his face blown off by a shot gun. It’s a lethal spot but survivable? Eh, maybe. At the time it was at least SOMETHING to point out.
And if it’s a mistake on the director’s side then they need to get that department together as well. It’s not hard to put a gunshot wound under her chin in the hallucinations. People say it would be too graphic…. This whole show is graphic, they killed two little girls. Stop with the “too graphic” card.
4. And finally the big thing that we are called “babies” for: The fact that she didn’t have a cross headstone or the scene of the cast saying goodbye. I saw someone mention that Andrea didn’t get a burial. I started to say that that was true but it isn’t. Andrea had a cross out in the field at the end of the episode and ALSO she got to say goodbye to Team Family. That was closure for us Andrea fans. Beth got NONE of that. ‘
5, Have you seen the opening credit “flash at the beginning” picture? I’m sorry but when I saw it on here and then went to my tv and saw the same thing, I got a little excited. It does look like people running and people who look strangely like Beth and Dr. Edwards.
Now the finale has aired and we all know she didn’t show up. But the thing is, don’t ridicule us for seeing signs and pointing them out. We all hoped she was some how magically alive. Finding these certain signs… That’s how we cope. Some of us like her a lot. We loved where her story was taking her. And when so much potential goes down the drain…. It’s hard.
It’s just a difference in opinion. I’m not saying don’t post your opinion, but you can try to not be so rude.
