So after a huge build up about the death of a major character in The Walking Dead season five was anyone really surprised that the show would be moving on and saying so long to Emily Kinney as Beth? Hints began back in season four when Beth was taken from Daryl after she gets out of the creepy walking dead filled funeral home in episode 13, Alone, her fate has been in question. Once season five started, it was revealed that she was in a hospital being held captive by the mentally screwed up Officer Dawn. Although to be honest, it looked like the girl was in danger of being beaten to death by the violence prone cop in charge before she was finally dispatched with a bullet to the head after stabbing Lerner with a pair of scissors in Sunday’s episode.
‘The Walking Dead’ Daryl and Noah to the Rescue (Review)
In this week’s episode of The Walking Dead: Consumed, Carol joined Daryl to go and find Beth, or at least learn what has happened to her, and by the end of the episode it looks like it will be Noah who walks out of the bushes when the show converges to the point where Michonne confronted Mr. Dixon in the bushes outside the cowardly Reverend Gabriel’s church. Taking a moment to look dispassionately at this season’s events and its trio of storylines, which are pretty much occurring at the same time in the verse at this point, are all putting the characters through the grinder. Rick’s group have been left pretty much alone while The Walking Dead has followed the journeys of Abraham’s group and Beth’s.
