We all love Beth.
So why the writers of The Walking Dead felt compelled to kill her off with a bullet to the head will always escape reason for many. But now we have rumors flying around that Beth could be coming back. My heart ached for my daughter who ran down the stairs this morning exclaiming, "Mom! They're bringing Beth back!" She was so happy, she could hardly contain herself. I knew it couldn't be true. As a rational adult, who understands that time is money, there was no possible way the writers would revamp the entire second half of the season. It made no sense. They have already wrapped up filming!
Why would they ever bow to fan pressure and not only re-write the rest of the season, but also bring in all of the cast and crew back, spending tons of money to reshoot the season. From a business point of view, it makes absolutely no sense.
I have yet to tell my daughter that it was all a horrible hoax. Sorry my sweet little girl, Beth is still dead. But if it's any consolation, I think it's safe to say that if they ever even consider killing off Daryl Dixon, there would be an all out riot.
Now...how do I go about telling my daughter that Beth's never coming back?
