Sometimes The Walking Dead throws us these big plot curveballs and resolves them pretty quickly, and other times we’re left waiting weeks, even months, for any kind of resolution. In Season 4, Episode 13: “Alone”, Beth Greene (Emily Kinney) was seemingly kidnapped when the house she was squatting in with Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) was overrun with walkers and the pair were separated for just moments.
Daryl escaped the house just in time to see Beth’s belongings on the ground and a car (likely with her inside) speeding away in the distance. He made a valiant effort to catch up to the vehicle, but didn’t really stand a chance. We have no idea who took Beth, though we do have some theories, but it doesn’t look like she’ll be eating peanut butter and jelly with Daryl again anytime soon.
In a post “Alone” chat with The Hollywood Reporter, Lauren Cohan, who play’s Beth’s on screen big sis Maggie Greene, seemed genuinely worried for Beth and said her kidnapping storyline likely wouldn’t resolve itself that soon. “That's going to be a really good point of suspicion for a while; there's not going to be a quick resolve to that situation. It gets very scary,” Lauren previewed.
And Beth isn’t the only one Lauren is worried about either. After she was taken, Daryl seemed truly defeated and sat down on the ground in the middle of the train tracks until he was confronted by Joe (Jeff Kober) and his band of baddies. Daryl and Joe don’t know each other, but we know the tennis ball bouncing dude as the leader of the group that almost killed Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) a few episodes back. In short, they’re bad news and Lauren is right to be scared. “This whole situation that Daryl has found himself in gets really scary. We should be pretty worried about everyone,” she concludes.
Yikes. This sounds really bad. Are you surprised that Beth’s kidnapping storyline won’t be resolved soon, or is something interesting to look forward to? Tell us your thoughts below!
