Emily shared the pic on April 30, just labeling it “Beth and Daryl.”
At least here, Bethyl is still together. On Season 4, they were ripped apart when Beth was abducted … or something. That mystery has yet to be solved, and we’re curious about when it will be solved, since — when she’s not sharing Hello Kitty Walking Dead dolls — Emily has been tweeting and sharing pics from non Georgia locations.
If she isn’t there, is that because Beth won’t be featured in the first episode at all? It’s not too shocking to think that, since maybe they have to get through the Terminus stuff before seeing her, but we’d really like to get Beth back in the action.
It’s possible Emily is just taking her time, getting other work out of the way before heading back into the TWD mix over the weekend or something. (Update: She's here!)
We won’t worry until it’s time to worry, but it’s not like Season 4 didn’t bench several people (including Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes) for several episodes. Season 5 is supposed to be very different in a lot of ways, but The Powers That Be have been extra mysterious about Beth’s fate, so we just have to wait and see…
The Walking Dead Season 5 premieres in October on AMC.
