DONT READ BECAUSE SPOILERS AND I CANT FIGURE OUT SPOILER TAGS
So apparently there is a big petition to bring Beth back (to life) somehow, and it is making an impact. Apparently show producers are considering it and Kirkman is trying to find a way to write it in to the story. The current theory is that the whole Beth rescue was Carol’s dream and Beth dying would allow Carol to romantically be with Daryl. The problems I see with that theory is that Carol isn’t evil, she’s just pragmatic in her survival decisions. And second, she wasn’t around when Daryl and Beth were bonding, and given Daryl’s private nature, probably wouldn’t talk about it.
I’m against the entire thing though, as much as I liked Beth, because it opens a can of worms (if they bring her back), because then fans of other characters that have died will petition to write that person back into the show. The other thing is it reminds of the news, no one really made an uproar when T-Dog (a black guy) died, even though he was a beast that never was given much development or background, but when a pretty little white girl dies, it’s a huge issue. That’s stretching it a bit I admit, the petition is because Beth was a good character and fans don’t think she was fully realized or utilized at her full potential (which I agree with), but that’s the way the show went, so that’s that.
Admittedly, Dawn and the Terminus cannibals were killed off too soon as well, in my opinion. The termites were creepy as ■■■■, and while it was insane how they were taken out, it surprised me how soon that happened. Same with Dawn. What it will be like at the hospital, or how it’s been (we only saw a glimpse)? And I wonder if Rick and co. will revisit the hospital ever, because none of the other characters there were well developed.
