“Last Man standing”
What if Daryl is fighting Negan’s men
And he’s the last one
He’s killed Dwight
And he’s standing there
Injured–on the brink of collapsing, close to succumbing to death
He’s ready to go; to leave this earth and find peace, somewhere, somehow.
And there she is. Beth Greene. Stronger than ever before. A smattering of scars on her right cheek and temples. She is now a battle hardened warrior. A girl back from the dead, living on borrowed time.
His vision is hazy and he thinks “this is it this is the end”
But she’s real.
And he’s the last man standing
And she touches him and he realizes she’s real
“Did you miss me?”
Hell yeah he did
Then he passes out–cut to black.
“You’re gonna miss me so bad when I’m gone, Daryl Dixon.”
“She’s just gone.”
GONE. not dead. GONE. Notice that she never and he never says “when I’m dead” or “she’s just dead”
Whenever I watch “Still”, I am annoyed at the beginning by Beth. Now don’t get me wrong. I adore Beth (obviously). But I feel like at the beginning of this episode, you’re supposed to be irritated by her. She’s being reckless and careless. But then you see why and you get it…Slowly. Also, I feel like no matter how much you love a character, they can and will annoy sometimes. Same as anybody else. But she’s, like, supposed to grow on you as much as she’s growing on Daryl I think.
