"Established in the first episode you will see one new relationship and potentially a couple more. […] As regards Daryl Dixon […] um, I think there’s a really interesting relationship between Daryl and someone that you may not think… I don’t wanna give too much away. But there’s a beautiful episode between his character and another character that has just been, uh… I don’t wanna say any more than that. It might be someone you least expect."
I’m sure he looks at her with a new respect and in a whole bunch of different ways. Not only can she fight and protect herself but, she’s opened up a soft spot inside of Daryl. And that’s probably the area that he’s most uncomfortable with in the world; more so than a zombie apocalypse. -NR
Anonymous asked: Do you think the TWD writers waited for Beth's character to be 18 before pairing him up with Daryl? I mean, seriously, EK and NR have chemistry (obviously), but why pair them up only now? And once Beth is 18 they suddenly wrote a whole episode dedicated to their characters? Makes me think they've thought about this a looong time ago but couldn't do anything because Beth was underage. Daryl and Beth are not in the comicbooks so they can definitely write a lot of storyline between these two right?
You know, I honestly think this is all Scott Gimple’s doing. I honestly think if he did not take the helm for S4 that Beth would either be dead or still very much a background character. He obviously looked at all the characters and saw what he wanted to do with them.
