    I agree with (what seems to be) the general consensus: Beth's death had been planned since season 4. While in seasons 2 and 3 she was merely a background character (with one episode of actual "development" in season 2), pushing her into the forefront gave the GA more of a reason to get to know her and care for her. Though some did misconstrue her interactions with Daryl as being "romantic," it was clear back then that she wouldn't have much longer to live both by her actions (acting impulsively) and her dialogue (ex: "I'm just another dead girl," and "You're gonna miss me when I'm gone"). BUT that storyline also propelled her character forward into being more outspoken and proactive at the hospital.

    I also have to agree with @skhskh that keeping Beth around now that the group is reunited would have only led to her becoming a background character once more, and that's not fair to Beth, IMO. Why develop her so much and turn her into a major protagonist if she's just gonna be another glorified babysitter?


    ...but I WILL be so bold as to say this out of spite:
    If TPTB had any reason to reconsider killing Beth off, Bethyl ruined that.

    Did Bethyl kill Beth? Yes and no.
    Beth's character never had much time to develop was given a purpose - a babysitter. Her skills were NOT going to be honed in a short period of time -like 2-3 days. The rest of the group were out on runs, doing business outside to keep walkers at bay and her survivor skills were not there. Then, you have this pairing with Daryl and the writing/acting whatever came across as pandering at best and I was pretty much done at this point.
    Hiatus comes and it is all about where is Beth and will Daryl find Beth. You have this sensationalism/commercialization of these two characters to the point if I saw one more thing about EK or NR or anything Bethyl related I was going to stop watching because I do not watch soap operas during the day - didn't tune into TWD for one either.
    So, in essence I do feel that Bethyl killed Beth because it was no longer about HER and HER development - it was always coming back to Daryl. This all could have been handled better. It's done now, please let's move on and hope everything from now on goes back into balance. And that the focus of the show remains on ALL survivors.

    Actually, no one has been "camping" in this thread for three days and it was slowly sinking to the bottom.

    The fact that most of the post are from people who hate Beth or Bethyl..speaks loudly about who spent the most time in here...whether it be 3 days or not...
    of course they would say the ship killed Beth, whether it's true or not

    Just don't see the need to resurrect a dying thread that people feel is hateful but whatever.

    Actually, if you had bothered to read the thread instead of coming in here insta-whining, you'd discover that a lot of people didn't think that Bethyl killed Beth.

    But believe what you want, you're probably going to anyway.

    I sure hope so, because that shipping is completely illogical to me and they needed to make it clear that Daryl would never be with someone half his age.

    You may want to back and actually read through the posts on this thread. The vast majority of posts suggest don't feel her demise was shipping related.
