All signs point toward next Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead being partially, if not heavily focused on Daryl and Beth's plight. Read no further if you aren't caught up on the AMC zombie drama through last Sunday night's "Claimed."
The promo for "Still" focuses on Beth's thought-process, through what sounds like her journal entries, as she discusses the importance of hope in this world. She talks about "after the prison," so this is presumably a current monologue, and it includes the words, "If you don't have hope, what's the point of living," which strikes me as rather ominous, when we factor in Beth's brush wish suicide a couple season's back and the fact that her father just died. The key is in the context of this phrase. Is she saying it optimistically because she's choosing to have hope? Or should we be worried that Beth might not see the point of living if she finds herself feeling hopeless? Maybe both.
The other preview for "Claimed" shows Beth and Daryl hiding in a car...
AMC also released two photos from the episode, which focus on Beth and Daryl...
The fact that we're seeing a whole lot of Daryl and Beth here and no other characters doesn't necessarily mean this episode will be entirely centered around Daryl and Beth. So far, each episode of the second half of Season 4 has been split between at least two sets of characters, and there's no reason to assume that this one will be any different. But it could be, especially if something major is about to go down with either Beth or Daryl. But it's also just as possible that AMC's holding off on revealing much, if anything, from any other arc in the episode.
AMC did release this trailer for the second half of Season 4, which includes quite a bit of familiar footage from recent episodes and focuses on the characters on the move again...
The Walking Dead airs Sunday at 9:00 p.m. ET on AMC. Read our breakdown of last Sunday night's "Claimed" here.
