    Did anyone notice that they seem to be trying to portray her much younger than she was last season? And that her and 'little tard' seem to like each other? It doesn't seem right to me.

    Yeah it does seem like they are trying to make her seem younger. Not sure why really and what purpose it would serve but I suppose it doesn't bother me too much. Just a little curious as to why they did that.

    Well during a pregnancy a woman gains a glow and sometimes it makes them look younger or more beautiful. I'm also pretty sure they were trying to make us fall in love with her, so the birth was a lot more heart wrenching.

    I think you're confusing her with Lori. Beth is Hershel's daughter. Lori was Rick's wife and pregnant.

    I am totally getting her confused with LORI! omg lol

    As for Beth I think she looked older in the last season. They probably did a focus group and one of the questions was "How do you feel about Beth and Carl dating?"
    Reaction probably was - "Carl is too young for her." or "Beth is Carl's age?!"
    LMAO so Carl looks older and Beth now looks younger. Meet somewhere in the middle to make the audience agree on what may come.

    I'm thinking Beth is regressing in age to make Carl and her more of a couple down the line if the series continues (word has they want to make it to 100 shows). Eventually you'd see a changing of the guard with the cast, and those two could move forward with the story.

    Either way. The episode Daryl is out, I am out.

    Agreed. But they'll have to replace Carl with an older looking guy. I can't watch a 12 year old romance.

    Well, by the time Season 4 rolls around, he could be about 14.... then at the end, kill off his dad, then Season 5, he'd be close to 16. Gets younger viewers.

    I think they'll keep Daryl for a while even if it's not in the comic books. On talking dead the author said they have to write things differently for the tv series and fans of the comic will see a fair amount of surprises/differences. It's kinda nice not know EXACTLY when someone dies or how.

    The fan base for Daryl is huge. I could still see them writing him out within a couple seasons, unfortunately.

    I could see The Walking Dead killing everyone off personally, shows like this make you root for the characters and get you attached then kill them all off to make you cry. D:

    Glenn is 3rd in command. He's gotta stay. I see Rick dying before Glenn.

    I agree with your observation about Beth and it does seem to appear this is the direction it's going why on earth though they're trying to make her appear younger than what she is, is beyond me. The "little felgercarb" I think has a crush on her and I see Beth looking at him as a "Younger Brother" type thing, anything more than that would be just wrong if she reciprocated "the little shits" glances.

    If Beth know's what is good for her she'll do herself some good by staying a mile away from him as he's likely to get her killed and cause all kinds of trouble, which to be honest, I wouldn't put it past him since he thinks he's living in a world with elves and fairies.

    Bwahahaha, a world of elves and fairies...nice one!

    They could also be making the point that Beth is regressing in age due to the stress of the ZA. She's collapsing back into a child like age because it's where you feel safe. I don't know

    Hello! :cat:

    I don't think that they are showing Beth to be any younger now as she was in the beginning. Beth has always been shown as a sensitive and sweet girl. I believe that they are stressing her age now because she is closer to Carl in age then to the others especially Axel who was trying to get her attention. I think that Beth and Carl might be a neat couple someday.

    If I remember correctly her boyfriend in season 2 was pretty old, 18 maybe. I do agree with you guys though, Carl does seem to be getting close to her. This is probably why they wanted her to appear younger. Then again she rarely even says anything.

    There us a teenager they brought in with Tyreese, Ben I think? Maybe there will be a love triangle of sorts. I don't dislike Beth, but she is rarely there. The whole plot line of her suicide attempt was ok, but it didn't leave me going "WOW".
