Ever since the the season 5 mid-season finale of The Walking Dead, fans have been in an uproar over Emily Kinney’s character, Beth Greene, getting killed off in the show. Between this, and the AMC facebook spoiler that basically killed the suspense for half the world; On November 30th, 2014, The Walking Dead broke the internet. Which I’d much prefer over a Kardashian ass anyday.
And now, Beth Greene is more popular than ever? I don’t remember this kind of reaction to Hershel or Dale’s death. Which in my opinion, were far better characters. Don’t get me wrong here. I’m certain there was a fan base before all this for Emily Kinney. But let’s face some stone cold facts here. Yes, her character started gaining some momentum towards the tail end of season 4 and the few episodes she appeared in season 5. But this doesn’t make up from the other 80% of face time she had on the show, that just bored us to sleep. In the end, her character was expendable. And I’m sure the writers knew this all along. Which is WHY Beth didn’t start getting any real storylines until they knew she was going to meet her demise. Now that I’ve said my peace, which hey, you are welcome to agree or disagree with, let me tell you why she really isn’t coming back. Despite what you may have heard.
There’s a fake story making the rounds courtesy of National Report, and unfortunately it fooled some fans who have now gotten their hopes up again — or have gotten even more upset at the Beth fans who want her back. Ahh yes. Let’s call it The Beth wars. The fake story’s headline is “AMC’s The Walking Dead Agrees To Bring Beth Greene Back To Life,” and it has more than 29,000 “likes” and 73,000 Facebook shares, which proves that there’s no news like fake news. We at iHorror strive to give you the most honest and up to date news we can provide for our readers. And we are here to tell you, that story is indeed a hoax. So sorry to burst the Beth Fan’s bubble.
Anyway, the story quotes a FOX executive who says he agrees with the fan petition that Beth’s storyline has major potential and her death only occurred to further Daryl Dixon’s path. They even claim the FOX exec signed the petition himself. They also add this BS about comic book writer/producer Robert Kirkman:
“Sources report that TWD executive producer Robert Kirkman has been putting in overtime with AMC and FOX networks to figure out how he can re-write Beth into the series. Rumors state that Kirkman is scheming to have Beth’s death be all in the dreams of Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride). It’s the only strategy that will likely work, as Carol is in love with Daryl, and knows that Beth is a threat to that. It is beyond logical for Carol to have dreamed of Beth’s demise. While it is difficult to receive comment from Kirkman himself, sources say he’s openly admitted he’s ‘working on it’ when asked about bringing Beth back to life on the show. It seems that The Walking Dead fans are winning the Beth Greene battle.”
Here is how they said it would happen according to the fake revised season 5 script:
“Rumors state that Kirkman is scheming to have Beth’s death be all in the dreams of Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride). It’s the only strategy that will likely work, as Carol is in love with Daryl, and knows that Beth is a threat to that. It is beyond logical for Carol to have dreamed of Beth’s demise.”
I have to give the author credit, regardless of the bullshit in all this, it’s a well thought out way to actually bring her back.
In the end, The National Report is a fake news site thats posts fictional articles related to what is trending and world events. Obviously some people are not aware of this. But thats the truth ladies and gents. Once again for the record, don’t believe everything you read on the internet.
