If you are still reeling from the Beth’s shocking death, you are not alone. In the first two minutes of ‘The Walking Dead’s winter premiere episode, Rick and the gang are forced to deal with the aftermath. Click inside to WATCH!
On Sunday night, Feb. 8, The Walking Dead is back and deader than ever! To help get fans pumped for the series’ big winter premiere, AMC has blessed us with the first two minutes of the episode. We don’t want to give too much away, but there’s crying, shoveling, and plans for the next step.
‘The Walking Dead’ Winter Premiere: Aftermath Of Beth’s Death
“We look not at what can be seen, but we look at what cannot be seen,” Father Gabriel says in a eulogy for Beth (Emily Kinney), in a moment that’s already gut wrenching.
“What cannot be seen is eternal,” he continues, as we get glimpses of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), Glenn (Steven Yeun) and Beth’s own sister, Maggie (Lauren Cohan), attempting to come to terms with their devastating loss in this first peek at The Walking Dead‘s winter premiere.
Also in this clip, we see Noah (Tyler James Williams) reveal some very interesting new information to Rick about what may just be their saving grace: an area of reclusive safety in Richmond, Virginia. However, it’s unsure whether or not it remains secure. Rick points out that, despite the risks and the fact that “it’s a long trip, if it works out, it’s the last long trip we’ll have to make.”
Could this group of survivors really find a safe haven again after everything they’ve been through — and everything they’ve lost?
Beth’s Heartbreaking Death: ‘I Get It Now’
As fans of the series will recall, the November midseason finale was seriously bonkers — and absolutely heartbreaking.
Beth, having finally had enough, stabs Dawn in the shoulder with a pair of hidden scissors, moments after telling her, “I get it now.”
Dawn snaps and in a moment that happened all-too-quickly, her gun fires and shoots Beth right in the head. Daryl and Rick are forced to watch their friend fall to the ground lifeless when a moment earlier she was so close to freedom.
It hurts just thinking about it, but it looks like we’re taking off right where we left off. Brace yourselves!
