I think Daryl should stay, in the walking dead never turn into a “walker” because he is most peoples favorite character to many and 50% of the people would stop watching the walking dead. After he is gone, he makes the walking dead better to watch and more interesting and also he is not stupid like some of the characters

Actually, didn’t Joe say it more like putting an outside cat (him) against an inside cat (Daryl)? The original subject was Daryl wanting to leave the group.

Is it possible (besides Gareth being a version of Father Gabriel) that Terminus is a sort of revamped version of the Hilltop Colony? And Gareth is a version of Paul Monroe (a Jesus-like character who no one really trusts, but isn’t necessarily bad) or Gregory (or both)? It would be another explanation for the cross on the back of the car and it would mean he took Beth in an attempt to save her. He could even be a combination of Paul Monroe and Gabriel? If this is the case, it’s far more likely that we’ll see Beth reunited with Daryl and Maggie. I haven’t heard many people bring up Hilltop or Monroe yet in theories, opting in favor of Gabriel, Hunters or Saviors — and I just think Hunters and Saviors are being held for Season 5, personally.

Daryl has one objective: find Beth. He has never had love, and if we learned anything in “Still” and “Alone” it’s that he is falling in love with Beth. She got through to him.. piggybacks, hand-holding, the singing, the carrying her around, the awkward revelation that she is changing how he feels.. He himself doesn’t know what he’s feeling. He’s never had that before. Even that disgusting bandit guy could tell he was lovesick. He’s not just going to forget about her. He might not find her until season 5, but he will find her. At the very least he’ll find whoever took her and torture the f*ck out of them. The writers are building this up to be an actual love story, unlike Glenn and Maggie’s hook-up turned true love (gag). Daryl is not an idiot. He knows there is strength in numbers, but he doesn’t know Joe is stalking Rick. When they meet up of course he’ll side with Rick and kill the bad guys. I think Carol and/or Tyrese will have to die though. Carol killed 3 people, including a kid. Her fate is sealed. She’ll probably go out saving Judith or Carl in some way, but she’s dead. Terminus is probably some weird cult, trying to repopulate the earth or something. Notice that “Mary” was pregnant? Honestly, I was ready to give up on this show until they started the Daryl/Beth story in “30 Days”. It’s the only storyline I’m interested in at this point and I’m sure I’m not the only one..

I think I am the only person who did not see the foreshadowing of Beth & Daryl in 30days. Beth has hugged many people and even kissed Rick on the cheek I just really felt like she was the touchy feely type. Now looking back I see how awkward that hug was for Daryl & see it now.

I think love is an important aspect in a world that is chaos, it’s part of living. They always displayed trying to live and stay humane wanting so called normal lives.

Yeah, I saw it right away. Nobody touches Daryl. Ever. He doesn’t like physical contact. Then he awkwardly responded to her by holding her arm, instead of pushing her away? c’mon.. She was like Zack? Zack who? (j/k) lol.. Then all through Alone HE was touching her. Over and over. And the looks he was giving her.. It really irks me when people say they don’t see it. It makes me worry for the human race.. But seriously, yes I think the only reason to keep living would be for love. Otherwise, why go on? You’d end up like the sickos he’s with now. Look what it’s done to Carol.. There is more to living than just survival. There’s humanity. He was starting to learn that with the group at the prison, but Beth was the one who got to his heart. She’s the stronger one between them. He acts like the big strong man, but he’s just a scared little boy on the inside. Always the follower. First Merle, then Rick. He was following her lead since the prison attack. Now he’s following Joe..or is he? I’m really hoping now that Beth saves him, however unlikely. He needs her just as much as she needs him, if not more.

The super woman in me is hoping she saves him too, lol. As far as needing her, I agree.

I have no clue who will die b/c almost all the living characters seem to have had there death’s foreshadowed this season. Maggie/Glen – The picture burning Bob- saying if he wasn’t always afraid maybe his other groups would have lived, Beth saying Daryl was gonna miss her when she was gone, Daryl being on the verge of giving up, Tyrese & Carol simply b/c there time has long since expired in the comic. Rick facing pure brutality could mean him/carol or michone.

So sometimes I feel like Beth is going to die & send Daryl on this crappy course in life so when they decide to end his character his popularity will be down, then at times I feel like she is going to become this super strong survivor & that are going to be a super bad a$$ couple.

Even the though crossed my mind that Daryl may move over to the new spin-off they are talking about where he does not go with the group & stays back to search for Beth. However I hope this is wrong b/c the main shows popularity may take a tumble.

Yeah you’re the only one. Love doesn’t have to be sexual, you sound young and naive. It is interesting that the two characters you’re interested in aren’t even in the comic. That means nobody can ruin that story for you. I think she got picked up by the preacher, or shes Hunter food. She may love Darryl but believe me his love for her is brotherly, not sexual. He’s gonna hook up with Carol.

Well since we are both fans of the Comic you would know that Carol is suppose to be with Tyrese.

It’s not good to judge someone from the internet ya know. Judging people you don’t know shows immaturity & ignorance.

I don’t read the comics, I just watch the show. No, I’m definitely not the only one. For me, season 3 was boring and predictable, and they killed off or ruined all the interesting storylines up until now. Try re-reading my post..(and re-watching the show for that matter) I never mentioned sex. You did when you said he would “hook up” with Carol lol.. I said he was falling in love with Beth. That’s what the writers want us to think. If that’s how you think a brother treats his sister, you are wrong. As a 36 year old happily married woman I wouldn’t call myself young or naïve, but thanks. My turn – You sound like one of those ‘Caryl shippers’ I’ve read about. Good for you. Talk about brotherly love.

Daryl and the claimers meet up with rick and co, rick and co kill them and take Daryl to Terminus. Rick knows its a trap from someone who escaped Terminus. They enter and find Beths head in the kitchen and hence that will be who is cooking as the others entered at the end of the last ep. Rick will scream…. series 5 ep 1… Rick screams again as they find the others eating Beth.

Just saw the Phillipine promo. Damn. There are a few more little scenes we didn’t get to see in any of the other promos. You can find it on Youtube. Confirms Daryl is in Terminus and that Rick, Daryl and the others will reunite with, at least, Sasha. Also, shows Carl sobbing and being held with a knife to his neck by the old, chubby “claimer” who torments him in the car in the NZ promo. Looks like we get to see how Rick takes that Terminan prisoner too, who he’s holding at gun point in front of Gareth (they show him walking up behind a man in an orange hoodie with Rick’s gun already drawn). There’s a few recycled shots from previous episodes in there that you can obviously dismiss. But it looks intense, and the fact Sasha clearly ran out from wherever she and the others were staying in Terminus, suggests that they aren’t being held captive or anything like that. Check it out and let me know if I missed anything, because it’s not the highest quality promo clip, and it moves very fast.

Darryl will save all his friends by killing Joe’s gang, but he will die in the process. Beth is dead too. She was kidnapped by those fromTerminus and she is being grilled up as lunch meat. Glen and Maggie will eat Beth by mistake.

This show is about what people will do to survive, and Daryl is doing just that. I don’t believe for a minute that he’s accepting what the Claimers spew, but if he’s going to survive around them, he best be claimin’ what he needs. When he’s done with them, he’ll be gone, and I’m certain he’ll be leaving a few bodies behind.

Sad to say, but I feel Beth’s been dead for a few episodes now. My bet is that while Beth made her escape from the zombie infested house she crossed paths with Joe and his men and was thus “claimed.” I don’t find coincidence in Daryl tracking the car’s trail and his first encounter with Joe and his men. After their brief scuffle Joe looks Daryl in the eyes and says “Why hurt yourself when you can hurt other people?” Joe’s group represents the worst of humanity and if Beth fell in their hands “we” already know what happened. Lets not forget the disturbing exchange between Daryl and stompedtodeath last episode, where he states Daryl’s bent out of shape over a “young piece of tail” he’s lost and that the “young ones don’t make it.” She’s dead and his group’s responsible, Daryl’s gonna find out during the season finale when Rick needs his help the most. Oh, and Mary’s a batshit crazy cannibal who lost her what humanity she had after her family died. Look at the child’s portrait Carl gives to Michonne in the abandoned house. of the woman with the hair cropped to the

This is just my opinion, so no offense to anyone, but I think it would be an injustice to the character and a really sad effort on the part of the writers to have Beth die off screen after being kidnapped. If they do that, it’s lazy writing, because it would add no value to the storytelling to do it that way. Beth has been built up to increase her role when she returns, not so they can just kill her off or have us never see her again. People forget that Glen Mazzara was the show-runner who liked to give characters a huge dose of characterization only to kill them off shortly afterward. Scott Gimple does things with a bigger picture in mind and a slow burn; when he spends time on characterization, it’s not just to give said character a send off one or two episodes later. His whole purpose for building up Beth is likely planting a seed for her role in Season 5. I think she’ll rejoin the group much stronger as an individual. Plus, they can’t just end the whole Daryl and Beth storyline in such a trivial way as to say, “oops, she’s dead, sorry Daryl. You suck and couldn’t save the person you were closest to.” We’ll definitely see a reunion between them — again, because Gimple is a master of storytelling and broad, sweeping arcs that, I feel, are bound to leap over into Season 5.

We don’t know just how long Daryl was sitting there before Joe’s group came along, but it’s safe to say that it was a good while; and Joe and the others were in the area. No one seems to have been very far from anyone else in the back eight; their paths just never quite crossed at the same moment. And the “claimed” guys just assume that anyone who would join them, even briefly, is probably like them, and they’re the rapist kind, as we well know.

I definitely think the whole Hunter storyline is a red herring for Terminus. I think so many people are predicting it and expecting it, that it’s going to be the complete opposite. Not saying it’s a good place, but I doubt it’s the Hunter encampment. I just can’t see these characters who are so inept and lazy when it comes to hunting wild game that they resort to eating their own children and picking off lonely travelers coming up with this elaborate ploy that takes time and patience that the comics proved the Hunters didn’t have. Plus, they don’t technically show up in the comic world until the survivors are on the road to D.C. and vulnerable. I think they’ll be part of the storyline in Season 5, but not likely right now.

Bare with me my imagination runs wild in this post.

Even though it’s mighty predictable for them to be the hunters I kinda think it is it. I don’t think they are the one’s who have Beth. They already have a huge trap heading into Terminus (foreshadowed my Rick’s explaining the rabbit trap), why would they set up a trap at that house, when the only place for Beth and Daryl to go was Terminus to begin with. They had to be close to finding that route b/c the walker that Beth stabbed in the head that Daryl held down was the same man that told Tyreese & Carol about Terminus.

Beth earned an on-screen death, out of the main group has there been any not on screen death when it came to series regulars (which by the way Beth became one in season 4, another reason I don’t think she is done yet).

About the woman in the painting, the woman in the painting is dead, you can go back to that clip and see the woman in the same clothes and hairstyle is dead in the rocking chair with a bullet to the back of the head (a strange awkward way of shooting oneself for suicide don’t cha think?) Some either painted the picture of the lady then mutilated it or someone found the picture and mutilated it.) Ironically Ms Mary who kinda has a psychopathic aura around her seems to be imitating this woman. So did mary have some sort of relationship with these people and kill them? or did she find them all as walkers and place there bodies?

Sorry for this being long but while I was analyzing the whole Mary thing it occurred to me maybe Terminus is not “bad” people but they are the ones who set up mary look-alike and her kids in the house after they found them dead & treated the people in the morgue has humans. Decided Daryl was a threat to Beth (since he is similar to the group Joe’s group as in appearance) so decided to take her but sending in a large group of walkers just doesn’t seem to fit that bill of “rescuing Beth” but I guess we don’t know if said person was already inside the house to grab her and take her to safety” Like they thought maybe Daryl had bad intentions that Beth did not see because she was so young and it’s a scary world so you will attach to any survivor you find, so even when she demanded to stay/go back for Daryl her request was denied” Maybe they are “good” cannibals and only eat the people they see as “bad”.

*New Zealand Spoilers past here*

We see Terminus attacking Rick and his group here maybe this Gareth character seen them do something he redeemed a bad so they wanted to bring them back for food hence him signaling for people to shoot. Which I guess will lead everyone to go to war even those that are safe in Terminus Glen & Crew, possibly beth if she is indeed there, who knows she may even save Daryl, since obviously he’s no good at saving her. lol

*some slight comic spoilers about Hunters, et. al.*

In the comics, the Hunters are far too lazy, inept and impatient to hunt or trap wild game, claiming they’re “too fast.” So they switched to easier, more gullible prey in humans. But they don’t even put much effort into traps for human prey. They never came up with anything nearly as elaborate as the funeral home “trap” or Terminus. They aren’t that clever or patient.

They’re the sort of people who eat their own children first, because it was convenient and easy. They wouldn’t stock a pantry with food they could eat and keep a funeral home tidy and dress up the dead, or drive along miles of railway lines putting up signs for sanctuary, sending out radio broadcasts and then actually putting together a viable refuge. It’s not their style. I don’t think the Hunters will show up until Season 5, after the group is on the road to D.C., out of their comfort zones and vulnerable (like in the comics).

So, while I agree Terminus is probably too good to be true and has some ulterior motive lurking within, it’s not cannibalism. Plus, this storyline makes more sense for the first half of season 5, to temper what will likely be another traveling arc as the survivors make the trek to D.C. There has to be some obstacles in there for them to keep it interesting, right? I think that’s when and where we’ll see the Hunters.

In the meantime, we’ll see Beth again in one viable piece at some point. Either she’s at Terminus or she’ll show up with Gabriel some point in Season 5 while Rick and the others are on the road to D.C. That’s essentially when they meet Gabriel and take refuge from the Hunters in his church.

Also, in the New Zealand promo, Rick is holding one of the Terminans hostage at gun point and it’s possible Gareth’s hand gesture is to ‘hold fire’ (as this scene could potentially take place after the shoot out). You can briefly spot Daryl behind the Terminan who is leading Rick and the others through at the line “welcome to Terminus,” so the encounter with Joe clearly happens before Terminus, with Daryl surviving and rejoining the fold with Rick. This also means that Rick is in a very emotionally tattered mindset by this point (because I think, like in the comics, he’ll probably tear one of the marauders apart with his bare hands, and that’s bound to affect a guy), so he’s probably not going to be very trusting to strangers at the moment, and highly suspicious of anyone he doesn’t know. Rick also asks Gareth, “Where are our people.” That makes me think either he’s paranoid/suspicious of Terminus after Joe’s attack, but it’ll turn out that it’s actually perfectly fine there, OR something really is going on there (though not likely cannibals).

I have heard so many theories about how this season will end! I think someone from the show (Robert Kirkman maybe?) said that this season finale would be shocking and action-packed, but would end “on a high note”. I think that having Beth be the one who dies is waaaaaaaaay to obvious! You’re right, they didn’t spend all that time building up her character (and Daryl’s) just to kill her offscreen. I think the most likely characters to die would probably be Maggie, Carl, and Michonne. My guess is it’ll be one of them, most likely Maggie. I think it was Robert Kirkman who was quoted as saying that one of the characters who hasn’t died in the comics yet will die in the season finale. Spoiler alert to anyone who isn’t familiar with the comics! That automatically eliminates Glen because his comic book counterpart died long ago. That might also eliminate Daryl and Beth since their characters don’t exist in the comics (although the thought crossed my mind that by saying a character who hasn’t died in the comics yet will die this season could apply to characters who don’t exist in the comics. Technically, whoever said it wouldn’t be lying. I just hope that Beth is alive, Daryl will be reunited with her, and neither of them will be dead by the end of the episode. The writers developed the connection between them for a reason; I truly hope it wasn’t simply to beat Daryl down even further by killing Beth off.

Terminus is a trap for cannibals its obvious there is no security and Mary looks like the painting michonne found with the bloody x over the mouth. And what about that meat on the grill? My guess is that is what’s left of beth and the group will eat her unknowingly and if course find out at the end

The only reason I do not think it’s Beth is b/c there story telling will have gotten pretty lame and predictable. Also there has been a confirmed death in the series this season of a living person in the comic dying and Beth is not in the comic and even if she was Maggie is the only living Greene.

That’s way to predictable I think they want you to think that but that is not her. They just turned her into a season regular this season, killing her after that type of upgrade seems silly. Plus I don’t think the group will have too many more losses besides they say a living person n the comic is going to die this season so that can not include beth or daryl because they are both tv show originals.

I don’t think that Daryl is going to forget all he’s learned so easily. He knows how to play the game and is just going along with Joe’s group until he gets to where he needs to be. I don’t trust Terminus and I don’t trust Mary. I believe that Beth will be there but this final episode is supposed to be more action-packed than any other episode so who knows what’s about to happen with the “Beth” story line. Daryl is smarter than we’ve given him credit for.

Kirkman hasn’t killed a major character in a while. When he does, it always propels the story forward so I’ll be right in front of my TV on Sunday night. Hell, I’ll watch it twice just in case I missed a word or something. I’ve been a fan of the comic for over 6 years and I’ll stick with the alternate universe on TV for as long as it runs.

And you people are not ready for Negan.

I agree that Daryl now knows what is right and wrong. He has seen 2 types of “family” already. These new mercenaries are just like the people he had in his life before the apocalypse. Authoritarian, “my way or the highway”, abusive people. From what Daryl described, his past was filled with those who killed for no good reason, just like these new killers. For instance, in the episode with just he and Beth, he recounts how someone nearly killed him over a cartoon. It contrasts with his family at the prison, where relationships were based on trust, equality, fairness and genuine intimacy. It is clear at the end of the episode “alone” that Beth has taught Daryl that it doesn’t matter who he was; he can decide who is going to be. This gang also seems to contrast with Terminus based on what the leader of the gang told Daryl about it. Like any brainwashing abuser the leader tells Daryl “you think they’re gonna welcome guys like you and me with open arms?” The fact that he already knows that this place won’t welcome them, seems to infer that Terminus has the opposite ethos. Their arrival so far at Terminus seems to indicate peace. The sign in the entry says that if you approach with weapons down you will be welcomed. There is someone who looks very un-warriorlike to meet them, and offers them food. I have a hunch that the writers are trying to make a point by contrasting different groups attitudes toward survival. We will have to wait and see what it is. I do not know if there will be a sudden death for the season finale. I would think that would be expected and gratuitous. Besides, Herschel died not that long ago. It would be more painful and cruel to leave us hanging, which is what I think the writers will do. It will produce the most the most pain in the audience. Anyway, it seems really clear to me now that what Daryl learned in the “alone” episode is going to play out here. It seems clear when asks the leader what the plan is, that he is trying to get information to plan how he can be there downfall. The episode with Carol having to kill Lizzie b/c she is a killer, I believe is foreshadowing a similar situation coming about in Daryl knowing that these killers have to be eliminated too. I believe that the murderers won’t expect Daryl to turn on them. Their abusive leader thinks he’s got Daryl all figured out. He’s an outdoor cat you know. Also, they won’t be expecting Daryl’s real family to already be at Terminus along with a former soldier etc, and possibly Carol and Tyrese bringing up the rear. We have yet to know whether Terminus will be worse than Woodbury, but if it is at all like it, it would just be a rehash of the Woodbury plotline. That is my final reason for being in the minority thinking that Terminus might be something positive. On a separate note, Beth is still missing. I think that she will remain missing until the next season, to create a cliffhanger. As I said in a different review, I hope to see Daryl and Beth in a romantic story arc, because they seem to complement each other. I think they need each other emotionally and help each other grow. I hope that hope isn’t yanked away (as it felt when she was kidnapped after such emotional intimacy), but this time permanently. I would be very disappointed in the show. There has to be something more to live for than just survival.

Daryl’s hope is wavering, but I don’t think it’s all gone. As soon as he sees Rick, he’ll be back on Team Prison in a heartbeat. Hope will be restored. We’ve established that Daryl sees Rick as family, as the brother he actually deserved in life, and Rick is the first survivor that Daryl shows regret over possibly being dead or never seeing again when he is shouting out his bottled up feelings to Beth in “Still.” As everyone in the show keeps saying, never question the depth of Daryl’s loyalty — and Rick and the others have done more for him than Joe has. If there’s a chance he can reunite with his group, that he can find Beth, his hope will be restored and he’ll go back to Rick’s troop. Plus, I’d hate to think that after all of that time spent bonding with Beth more than he has with any other character on the show, that he would just let go of all the things she taught him that quickly. He was going to cover Len up with a sheet — like he and Beth did in the country club in “still” — but, I think, his reasoning was sort of, “She would cover you up out of respect, but you spoke ill of her and you’re not a good person and you don’t deserve her form of kindness.”

P.S. I love the fact his bag was full of gum and cinnamon sticks. I mean, seriously, what else would Daryl Dixon have in his goodie bag in the apocalypse? Well, he did add a strawberry bush to the mix at the end.

That is something that actually confuses me it was a blackberry bush but there was one single big red one on it.

Daryl was despondent and lifeless. It freaked me out!!! He really came to care very deeply for Beth and yes, like all good movie ploys will do, interrupted at the very moment, we would have seen something material. UGGGH. Now he’s broken and defeated. I’ve been waiting for some vision of beth yelling at him to snap out if it~!! Never seen him like that.

Relax all Daryl Dixon fans as he is almost certainly using the group as a means to an end which is to find Beth and reunite with the group. Being found by Joe and his motley crew will be the “vehicle” to do so and Daryl fits in nicely because of who he once was and not who he has emerged to be. If he had shown his new softer side I believe he would have been killed or left on his own.
I also don’t think there is a love interest between Beth and him but rather a brother to sister type relationship. Daryl feels badly and if you recall he broke down and told Beth that he should’ve killed the Governor or done more to prevent Hershel’s death. Let’s not forget Carol is back in the picture and I’m sure that Daryl will be happy to see her when reunited at Terminus.

There has already been hints about the upcoming conflict with Rick and Joe’s crew and there is only one member of the group that can identify Rick as the killer. Last night you’ll notice that Daryl spotted the candy bar wrapper on the tracks so I believe he has an inkling they are speaking of Rick. I think Daryl will kill the “witness” before he can identify Rick.

Beth will be found at Terminus shortly after Daryl arrives as he will spot the old Caddy she was taken away in from the “trap” house. Terminus is all a trap anyway where guests become the food and any supplies brought there replenish the Terminus inventory. Look closely at Denise Crosby’s character Mary and you’ll see she appears to be wearing Beth’s lace type shirt under her sweater.

Looking forward to the season finale.

Mary wasn’t wearing Beth’s shirt. Beth had on a yellow pollo shirt and a gray sweater of entirely different coloring and weave. She left the lacy shirt and flowing over-shirt in the country club. She didn’t take them with her. I do agree that we’ll see some sort of sign that she’s at Terminus — be it Daryl finding the car or her necklace or something — but I think she’ll be safe. He’ll find her. I don’t think I fully agree that there isn’t a romantic undertone to Daryl and Beth. The comics explored a similar relationship that the TV series hasn’t yet, and it could go in that direction with time — so I’m not saying right away. Slow build sort of thing. Regardless, it’s clear that Beth is the closest person to Daryl at this point in time and he’s not likely to let anyone else get that close again after Beth was stolen away. That’s why I agree that he clearly doesn’t trust Joe and he’s not likely to choose him over Rick. But I don’t think he knows Joe is after Rick yet, per se. Daryl stepped over the candy wrapper; he never actually saw it.

I don’t know that Daryl missed the candy wrapper. When he’s tracking, he doesn’t miss much. So who knows what Daryl is thinking.

Almost certain Daryl separates at the start of next Sunday because Daryl would have never got so “claimy” over berries. Remember Beth was picking berries and he just watched and offered her something to hold them in. I believe there was something else in those berries maybe that red thing wasn’t a berry was something b/c all the other berries on that thing was black and that is what he took off. So that means when Joe’s group runs into Rick’s trio Daryl will not be there to help.

or if Daryl is there Daryl will die by rick (totally don’t think this is possible due to his close relationship with Rick & Michonne)

I believe Daryl will find Beth in the last 10 seconds of the finale whether she is alive, dying or zombified is anyone guess (possibly being served to maggie & crew).

My boldest prediction will be in some way or form Maggie will die in the finale or in season 5 ep 1.

I think for everyone there are characters if died would make someone stop watching for me these people are Daryl, Beth, Michonne in that order.

Carol is my favorite, then Michonne, then Maggie and Glen. My favorite was Dale and we know what happened to him.

I worry about people like Carol, Tyreese & Glen b/c these are non-survivors in the Comic. I’m not worried about Little ass kicker, too much potential. I wish everyone could live, I do believe if Maggie does die it will extend Glen’s life expectancy, The only reason I am seeing Maggie as the one is b/c they suggested someone alive in the comic will die, her actress wants to pursue other opportunities.

Greg Beans had a soft spot or two for Dale as well, let me tell you. He was a glorious man and is sorely missed.

Dale voluntarily left the show he wanted to quit due to someone else being fired. I really hated his death it’s been the only death that has made me cry.

If Daryl or Beth die it will ruin it. Daryl has been the badass factor that you can’t replace and Beth is finally becoming a character that we can get to know. They can’t rob us of that. I don’t want the only successful relationship to be Glenn and Maggie. It’s not fair. If Beth or Daryl die that would be enough to get me to stop watching. The Vikings is a pretty good show to replace my time.

I have to agree with you. Not necessarily for the relationship but Daryl is just seems so important & Beth has lots going for her character. Daryl was actually trying to train her to be able to survive before she was took.

For me, it’s Daryl, Beth, Rick and Michonne. I want to see these four carry on. I’m becoming pretty partial to Tara’s redemption story too. I suspect something bad may happen to Carl — maybe not death — but definitely something bad (*comic spoiler* he almost gets raped by marauders and later has his eye shot out… so… it could happen sooner in the show than in the comics). I worry for Maggie, because she sort of made a ZA jinx on herself or Glenn with that whole burning of the only photograph he has of her thing. I don’t envision Beth being the group’s victim of the Hunters. I envision it being someone like Bob, and not until after they’re on the road to D.C., because the writers will need some action to temper the traveling storyline for the first half of season 5 (I doubt they’ll reach Alexandria until the middle of the next season). I also agree that I’m hoping in the last moments of “A” that Daryl will find Beth at Terminus or he’ll find the car she was taken in and he’ll resume the search and find her eventually.

If either one die in “Glaggie”, Glenn would die and Maggie will end up pregnant.

Also I think Darryl saw the candy wrapper(Norman Reedus even mentioned the wrapper on Talking Dead the last time he was on). I think he claimed the plant to a)seem like he was going to follow along with the rules and b) draw attention away from the wrapper. He spent a lot of time with Michonne. He may have even known that was one of her favorite candies(or Carl’s).

Janet: “He needs his upper and lower eyelids done… tooooo puffy” Clearly you are unaware that Reedus was in a major car accident in 2005 where he was ejected through the windshield and became cheesegrated as he slid across the pavement. He has a titanium eye socket. That’s why that eye appears, as you say, puffy. It’s a miracle the man survived and they were able to reconstruct his face as well as they did.

Patricia: You’re right, he did have an accident that required surgery on one eye. It was actually the other eye, though. The left eye, the one that isn’t “puffy,” is the one the titanium socket is in. Due to the plastic surgery needed to repair the damage, it likely required tightening the skin and resulted in less periorbital puffiness in his left eye. His right eye (the one that has more periorbital puffiness) is actually the one that has remained untouched.

Janet: I think asymmetry is beautiful and it becomes him, personally. It adds to his eye smoulder.

I think his eyes are one of the sexiest parts of him.
NEVER EVER tell someone they need plastic surgery. that’s just rude.
