The Walking Dead Season 5 SPOILERS: Mid-Season Finale Ends in Death of Favorite Character, Official Facebook Page Ruins Surprise [VIDEO]
So you didn't get a chance to watch The Walking Dead last night. For whatever reason, you planned to watch it later. Maybe today. Maybe you just live on on the West Coast. You hop onto Facebook last night for a minute, knowing that all of your friends can be trusted not to spoil it for you. And there, on your screen, big as day from the official TWD Facebook page, RIP Beth.
That's right. They spoiled it for you. The original post showed up shortly after the episode ended on the East Coast.
It was quickly removed but the damage had already been done. A few hours later (after it had run on both coasts) the post was put back up.
The epic, heartbreaking moment came at the end of the episode when the prisoner exchange took place. Before we get into it, Daryl cried. Those are like apocalyptic Chuck Norris tears. That's how sad this was. Right after the group was reunited, an argument broke out between Dawn and Beth which lead to Dawn putting a bullet into Beth's head. Goodnight, Beth, you sing no more. Justice came swiftly for Dawn as Rick put her down right away. Team Rick then carried their fallen back to her sister, Maggie, who is now alone.
The waterworks continued on the subsequent episode of The Talking Dead. Emily Kinney, the actress that played Beth was visibly upset about her death on the show. Much like Laurie Holden, the actress who played Andrea was when she sat on the cursed couch before her ultimate fate was revealed (Season 3, bit by zombie, committed suicide while Michonne stands in vigil).
The season is only at half time, in February we find out how the team handles this tragedy.
