Beth Greene (played by Emily Kinney) was killed off in the mid-season finale in season 5 of The Walking Dead. Her death was far too soon and the writers threw away a perfectly good potentional character. Her story wasn’t over. Emily Kinney and her character don’t deserve this. There was so much more to be done with her charcter and they chose to kill her in a disgusting, unsatifying death that caused more anger and dissapointment then shock and mourning. Beth was a symbol of hope that a lot of women could relate too and see themselves in (ecspecially self-harmers who saw her as someone who overcame their suicidal/depressive feelings). By sloppily killing her just shows that she was used to further a man’s (Daryl’s) storyline. I realize that the circumstances she dies in are irreverisble, but this is television. Anything is possible. By signing this petition you can at least show your support for Beth. Let’s show Emily Kinney how much we love her and want her back.
FUCKING SPREAD THIS SHIT LIKE NUTELLA (All hate will be completely fucking disregarded, so don’t even waste your progression towards carpal tunnel on typing it out.)
This may seem cold, but I’m going to say it anyways. It’s time to get new people in charge of the show. Creator Robert Kirkman made some very successful comic books. That doesn’t mean he’s very good at producing a TV show. Showrunner Scott Gimple is quite frankly running this show into the ground. And the writers show no interest in creating complex, interesting characters or believable plots. Time for fresh blood across the board. I don’t think anything will change for the better otherwise.
