The Walking Dead Recap: Will Beth And Daryl Finally Have Their Moment? [Spoilers]

The Walking Dead Recap: Will Beth And Daryl Finally Have Their Moment? [Spoilers]

The Walking Dead finally gave fans what they had been waiting so long for — Beth and Daryl, together at last.

For a few minutes, at least.


The show had teased viewers with a romance between Daryl Dixon and Beth Greene for weeks, so much that fans even dubbed the hypothetical couple “Bethyl.” Last week’s episode teased the possibility of the two characters coming together on a quest to find alcohol in the Georgia backwoods, leading many to hope there could be a chance for romance for Beth and Daryl.

On this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, the plan finally seemed to come to fruition. The two were finally about to share their romantic moment, but got separated by the walkers before anything could happen. Daryl finally fought his way through to Beth, just in time to see her being kidnapped.

Needless to say, The Walking Dead fans who were hoping for a Beth and Daryl romance were quite upset with the twist in circumstance, many of them taking to Twitter to express their displeasure.

Not everyone is on board with the “Bethyl” romance, however. Many fans seemed put off by the age difference between the teenage Beth and 40-something Daryl.

With a cliffhanger ending, it seems that fans of The Walking Dead will have to check back to see if Beth and Daryl ever get their chance a love.

    yup, he is totally smitten with Beth, and for good reason, she has been reaching out to him slowly ever since the prison, displaying little acts of affection towards him. She had to fight to be seen as an adult so that is why she went drinking and tried to get him to open up. Now that he does not see her as weak teenager and she has had the chance to show him more in depth of who she is, he has also been able to face his own pain and see the depth of himself, this has brought them closer, and now love has had a chance to flow freely between them. Although shy he was finally warming up to the idea of being loved, because he felt love from her and now for her. He will be really heart broken now that she is gone.

    OMG if Beth doesn't want him I'll take him. They would make a good couple Daryl is protective and brave and so sexy love his arms. Beth is a sweet innocent girl probably still a virgin. Daryl would be a fool not to snag her, and she needs his protection from all those horrible zombies and people out there. I vote yes for them, I want him to kiss her so bad………………

    I really want Daryl and Beth have a romance! He became more sensitive and she became stronger since they are together. It's like they complete each other!

    Umm, isn't she supposed to be a kid, and he a grown man? Gross…

    I'm pro "Bethyl." The 'rules' of a collapsed society were more like ignorance. There's nothing to say if two people love each other and can make each other happy (and Beth and Daryl are clearly happy in their little bubble), that there should be any restrictions to that, be it age, gender, etc. It's not gross. It's realistic. These relationships happen and they can be very strong, healthy and rewarding; I've seen these sorts of relationships happen, I see why they can happen, and I've seen them work — so maybe that's why I don't see a problem with it. He was giving it back to her just as intensely as she was sending it, so I think people underestimate how mature people are forced to become in this sort of world where everything is a struggle. Carl's only, what, 14 — and inside he's more like 20. Beth is 19 and she's probably just about on Daryl's level, emotionally and in maturity. While no one connected to the show can say too much and tend to be in the habit of misdirecting viewers with flat-out lies (i.e. Lincoln and Kirkman both said Judith died in the mid season finale, off screen, so viewers wouldn't get upset at an on screen baby death and that we wouldn't see the toddler the rest of the show — but come the back half of the show, there's baby Judith, alive and well), I don't doubt something is in the cards for a Bethyl reunion, and hopefully it's a happy one, which will let us see this relationship explored further.
