No amount of “proof” will ever be enough for hardcore, delusional Bethylers to ever believe the fact that Beth is anything but 18, because it just makes their pervship more palatable and easy to defend. Some of these people still believe her maggot riddled body is still somehow coming back. No hope for them, but for anyone interested in facts please read on. I know there is much speculation on Beth’s age, so I have compiled my own timeline using the walking dead wiki AND Scott Gimple (exec producer, that’s all), and common sense. So please provide your facts to refute the ones I stated, and sticking your fingers in ears and going lalalalala is not a valid rebuttal. Let’s do some math……
To factually age Beth we know the following to be true. There are two times Beth’s age is mentioned in the show as points of fact. On the Farm in Ep 206 “Secrets” Maggie says Beth is 16 yrs old and in Ep 308 “Made to Suffer” Axel was reprimanded for noticing 17 year old Beth. 240 days (8 months) after Beth’s 16yr age is mentioned , according to wiki, and Judith’s gestation (Lori was pregnant before she got to the farm, because pregnancy tests don’t read until 4-6 weeks pregnant) Carol says Beth is 17, so mathematically she couldn’t be older than than 16 yrs and 3 months old on the farm or Carol would have said she was 18. She can’t be 17y and 9 months or she couldn’t have been 16 on the farm. At the end of season 3, Beth is now no more 17 yrs and 2 months old
Season 4 begins.
According to The Walking Dead wiki it’s been 6.3 months later
According to Scott Gimple it’s been 6-7 months
Beth is now 17 yrs and 8 months old at the beginning of Season 4.
6 days later Beth has a drink. Yes ALL of Season 4A was about 7-10 days. Look it up, to many sources to cite. She is still 4 months away from her 18th birthday.
With all those factors in place, we know Beth was no more than 16 years and 4 months old on the farm, and at the time she “needs” a drink so bad, she is 17 yrs and 8 months. Got other “facts” to lay out. Please do so.
SPREAD THE NEWS! BETH IS A MINOR! If people say they don’t care if she is underage you got a whole ‘nother set of problems, and I will seek mental health advice ASAP.
