I swear, everyone on the cast ships Bethyl
Someone stood up and asked Scott Wilson “would Hershel support a relationship - a romantic relationship - between Beth and Daryl….because I sure don’t support it” and Scott replied “ you know, affairs of the heart are very personal, regardless of what someone else might think is in the best interest of someone. It doesn’t mean it really is because you can not read their hearts. So if it’s something that they are mutually agreed upon then you really have to be careful about what you’re doing with that because you can hurt people” which was basically a big eff you to the woman who asked it. He even winked after he said it!
And then Lauren Cohan said right after “ Our dad just wants us to be happy, he wouldn’t stand in the way of love…and that’s all I’m gonna say about that.”

Time scrambling. [a rough and messy thought.]
When Gimple made his comment that time would be “scrambled” in 5A, I started thinking of how the writers could use that to inflict the most pain. Cause, don’t kid yourself, they aim to inflict the pain.
So, right now we know we will have different groups: Team Rick. Beth. Daryl and Carol. Morgan.
Now, “what if” when we get to Beth’s arc — the time frame is not ever shown in relation to present Team Rick or Carol/Daryl?
Meaning this: Team Rick escapes Terminus and then a shot of Morgan is shown passing by the Terminus sign Rick had written on — but the scene of Morgan passing the sign, was shot to illustrate time had passed — there was more foliage etc. around the sign.
When we see Team Rick on Sunday, in 502, time will have jumped. Not sure how much, but it has.
We know she was taken probably a week-ish or so, before Terminus — so as we get to her arc in “Slabtown”, their mode of storytelling could show obvious Gareth-like “flashback” sequences or alike, to illustrate what happened to Beth as she was captured — to catch us up to what has occurred in the time since.
BUT, outside of obvious flashbacks, once we see her in “Slabtown” we have no idea how her time frame fits into the scrambled nature of Team Rick. And soon-to-be, time frame of Carol and Daryl.
Inflicting pain? We see Daryl fight to get to her. We see him chasing these cars, falling off bridges… risking life and limb. We see her in hell, doing whatever the sick creeps are doing in the hospital. We see them striving to get back to each other. Build. Build. Build.
Then, In the MSF, they cut back and forth to what is happening with Beth and Team Rick/Daryl. Beth is in serious shape — she needs help in that hospital. Daryl and Rick are outside fighting. You are screaming that Daryl get in there and get to her in time… Then he finally breaches the building — and to our horror, his time frame is not her time frame. He get’s in and she is gone. PAIN.
A number of things can then unfold — they show Beth having something horrid happen to her to make us think she is dead. Cut to Winter break. THIS COULD GO A 100 WAYS. And we have to factor in Tyler’s character…. BUT my point is, the time scrambling could prove to be VERY cool. If Beth is alive, she could pop-up later… because she is GONNA HAVE TO USE HER TRACKING SKILL or that was a waste of screen time, and that doesn’t feel right to me.
All of this has to have a reason. A purpose to further the story, that apparently has far-reaching implications. I don’t think it can be “is Beth alive” or “Will Daryl get to her” for too long — Can they continue that? At some point the story has to change. Lauren said something interesting in her interview:
So just having a direction to head in [DC], whether or not it could help the entire human race, is a way to also look for Beth. Because it could be a place other people are headed to.
She called it the new Terminus. Then Andrew Lincoln, noted that we’d know in the first 8eps who would go after Beth and who has her — but it may not be fully dealt with inside of 5A.
It just can be discerned that time could play up big in her arc ———
That may have been speculated on already, but feel free to send me a message. I just feel like, this has to tie in some how. I’m tired, sorry this was sloppy!
Note: Possible that time is a thing. I had someone tell me that Rick’s watch in 501 was zoomed in on and shown at 5:00 — that could play into all of this time craziness or it could be nothing.
This. I’ve been having the same thought, but blondietvjunkie was able to articulate it much better than I have.
