For those Walking Dead fans who’ve been clamoring for more Daryl Dixon on-screen action this season, fear not. Episode 12 of the hit AMC zombie series, titled “Still,” looks like it will deliver the goods.
On the run and separated from the rest of the group, Beth and Daryl are fighting for their lives against a horde of zombies in the latest sneak peek from The Walking Dead season four. A montage of scenes narrated over by Beth, played by Emily Kinney, finds the pair navigating zombie filled terrain at night, seeking shelter as the clip begins:
“After the prison, we were always moving,” Beth says. “We just need a safe place to be. We can stop running, stop scavenging.”
Shortly thereafter, as Daryl and Beth are investigating a house, presumably to determine if it is zombie free, Beth can be heard screaming for Daryl who is in imminent danger from attacking zombies. As the sneak peek comes to a close, Beth can be heard narrating once again:
“If you don’t have hope, what’s the point of living?”
A different Walking Dead sneak peek, offered on AMC’s web site finds Daryl and Beth in a more quiet setting, doing the necessary things one must do in the wilderness to survive, namely building a fire and hunting for food (in this case a tasty snake?) While this sneak peek offers very little in terms of danger or suspense, one interesting observation gathered from the thirty second clip is that Daryl breaks one of his arrows while trying to capture his prey. And while something minute such as that does not typically impact your typical show, The Walking Dead is anything but.
With the threat of death looming over every character, no matter how hardcore their following may be, every weapon is essential to seeing your favorite Walking Dead character continue on into the next episode — a fact not lost on the show’s stars themselves. In an interview with Huff Post Live, as previously reported by Inquisitr, Norman Reedus admitted as much:
“All of us would be lying if we didn’t race through every script [to see if our character made it]. But I think it’s a lot like real life.You always feel you have more time with someone and then they get ripped from you. I think [the show] mimics real life.”
So whether or not Daryl and Beth survive this week’s installment of The Walking Dead remains a mystery to everyone. However, one thing is certain, if you’re a Daryl and Beth fan, this episode of The Walking Dead is tailored for you.
The Walking Dead airs Sunday on AMC at 9:00 p.m.
