niahbwriting tagged me in a screenshot earlier of an article she read about TWD’s “Most Shocking Deaths of Season 5″ and surprisingly, very surprisingly, Beth was not on the list. Let me just repeat that…the character with the worst written death in the entire show (yes, I said and I’m more than happy to explain why I think so for more anyone who would like to know) was not on the list. The little blonde who both Gimple and GN have stated is “dead” without actually using the four letter word. The funny thing is, that article actually had me thinking.
It’s all connected. Everything that TPTB have fed us. From Beth’s badly written death, Emmy’s interview on The Talking Dead episode after “Coda”
RK’s not-so-subtle thumbs up, the ASZ tour, the fact that no one both on and off screen has actually said “Beth is dead”, the sunrise and the music box restarting in 5x10 only after Aaron says “I have some good news”, the fact that before Season 5 even started GN told us that the clocks were something that we had to paid attention to (something that they’ve only just told us to pay attention to), the scars that match those of Andrea in the comics, even Emmy’s tweet about wishing the cast a great start of Season 6 filming. It’s adding up.
I don’t really know why it’s taken so long for me to realise it, but as I sit here writing this meta I’m connecting the dots. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that the way Gimple has handled Beth’s “death” was pretty bad. But I gotta give the man credit, he’s pretty clever. Beth is his baby, a character he created specifically for the show and I don’t believe he’s finished with her at all. He’s just lead us to believe that he is. Why? Here’s why…
