Rick says to Daryl…“ It’s been 17 days since Atlanta (ACTUALLY SAID 3 WEEKS..thank you rosiecotton)….I know you lost something back there.” This is just screaming at us…..this is a prophetic moment….if Morgan would have had this on his walls…..we would have been yelling and pointing at if from the start..OH, WAIT A MINUTE……
Notice by Rick’s left shoulder..HOW MANY DAYS OR HOW MUCH TIME…AND above that…IT DOESN’T MATTER….
And, going back to Rick talking with Daryl…after he says about them not being at their strongest….“ We’ll wait for higher ground….or something like that.”
AGAIN….HIGHER GROUND is on the walls TWICE. We’ve heard this before, about using HIGHER GROUND….
When we see the tires and bottom of the white van and then you hear Abraham say..“ We’re out, just like the other one.”…I assumed he had meant the blue truck. But now…..
With the reaction’s we’ve seen by Maggie, Rick, Michonne, Noah, Glenn and Tyreese..so far…when the see a car that seems to resemble this one…they all stare at it, act apprehensive and almost dare I say, ‘regretful’?
Maybe, Abraham had been talking about another car….one that looks like this….
This is the car……we’ve seen so many that have a similar look…color and so on….
Again….a reminder of 'who’ this is suppose to look like….the green gag…associates it even more….
This walker is the one from the barn….in a closet-like area. Maggie opened the door, but notice the her arm….when I did a post on some of the things in this room….some of us thought maybe it was something she had been wrapped in….but after watching the scene, several times….and with the long hair, blue-eyed look…..this reminds me of something we have seen before……
When you watch the 'closet’ walker…you can tell it had been a sweater….very close to the one Beth had on in 30 Days…..
Okay, so Maggie is finally talking to Glenn…“ I never thought she was alive. I just didn’t……” skipping some…“ And finding out she was, and then she wasn’t in the same day…”
This just peaks my interest some what and had to point it out and see if anyone else seems to go…hmmmm?!
I’ve pointed out, as have many, how this episode Sunday night, was about Beth…..they have pointed it out like driving a sledgehammer against us…not only with these but…cicada cocoon….@rosiecotton wrote a post about their meaning….the seahorse on the key chain for the car…I had wrote about the the symbolism of them…..even the scenery reminded of us of Beth and Daryl in Still and Alone….
Then C@rol giving Daryl her knife…..just so much….
And like most, I’m left to wonder….WHY??!!….What do they have to gain by this?? And why haven’t they showed us her?…. and what happened after they left the hospital?…where did they bury her??
There have been the lost of 'family’ that they didn’t show a burial for…Andrea…Shane and Hershel, come to mind quickly. And two of them that I know wasn’t buried, but extenuating circumstances prevented it and I don’t think they were able to Andrea for the same reason (not sure of this, someone??)
The reason of course, was walker’s…everywhere,,,herds…that left them running for their lives….SO, this is also a 'sign’ to me, us….that’s what had happened to Beth…..logically thinking…..THEY would NEVER have not buried her…..Daryl and Maggie would never had aloud that…especially Daryl…not after the funeral home…..Just No!!
This, once again to me, is pointing to them leaving her in a car..the trunk, maybe….with them showing keys and locks so much also…it could be a probability….with the walker’s and add in the keys and locks…we have this thought/insight…that they did indeed leave her behind.
Adding more despair and even self-loathing to Daryl..and Maggie. And with all the 'walker’ look-a-likes we’ve seen this season also….the audience when we see this…will 'assume’ she is just another dead girl…one that turned….one we’ve seen so many times….BUT…..the big reveal and shock….she’s NOT…she’s ALIVE!!
After Christ had risen….he appeared to them, some individually and some in small groups at first, then he appeared to the group as a whole….he was then in this world for 40 days before he ascended to his Father’s house….
17 days since Atlanta and three weeks….which was/is a parallel to Rick…his length of time in a coma….but three weeks is 21 days…..Here’s another what if….another 19 days= 40. Beth has been likened to Jesus…the whole season….but her 'ascension’ WON’T be to leave this earthy plain….but to 'return’ to it?!!
Someone who understands the TIME in this show please figure out when 19 days would be….the episode??
I’ve had some msgs about Beth not showing up in 5x10… love and hate…. So here are some thoughts of the Episode:
(Personally I loved it.)
As far as the whole Beth Arc goes - At first I felt like I was in the same place as last week after finishing the episode. I told myself after 5x10, if she didn’t show up I would just forget their being a literal ‘resurrection’ story arc for her - There are lots of ways for a character to have a figurative spiritual resurrection, which would still fit fine into the Christ Figure symbolism they used with her character. Unfortunately, it would mean for the Beth obsessed she definitely would not return in the flesh.
By the end of 5x10 Them… I just feel like there is way more direct evidence of the writers doing a In the flesh character 'resurrection.’
