I'm re-binging The Walking Dead and I'm on Season 5, Slabtown.
I never realized how much this show lost with Beth Greene. The first time through I was kind of "eh," towards her character. Sure she had an effect on Daryl and Maggie, but that was about it. I forgot about her musical numbers and how she improved the ambiance back when Team Rick first moved into the prison. I'd forgotten just how much she changed Daryl in "Still," and it hadn't occurred to me that two show-exclusive characters had shared an episode together.
I keep thinking back to the scene of her singing to Daryl in that coffin - no I'm not a shipper - got me all nostalgic and teary-eyed, longing for the days when this show could have quiet, tender scenes like that. The group never had a decent singer after that.
The words Beth spoke an episode prior, "You're gonna miss me so bad when I'm gone, Daryl Dixon," and the conviction she had that she wasn't going to make it, and that Daryl would be the last man standing.
I don't know. That just chills me, especially looking at Daryl now.
It struck me how much I realized I missed Beth. Anybody else got a character they sorely miss?
