TWD Season 5: Beth Won’t Be BBQ’d – Now Shut the Hell Up Already!

walking-dead-daryl-beth-season-4

We’re only 4 days out since the finale of Season 4 of The Walking Dead and the speculations regarding Season 5 are already in full bloom. But I think I’m doing a public service to everyone by reporting this news – Beth will not be Terminus barbeque when the series returns for its fifth season in October 2014.

Here’s what Robert Kirkman had to say about the theory:

“The Beth BBQ question is a big one. I’ve seen that a lot on Twitter,” he recently revealed. “When a theory is as prevalent as that one is, it’s more than likely not true. If there ever was a storyline where we were going a different way and the audience seemed to be ahead of us to that point, it would be extremely unfortunate and I would certainly not feel too good about how well we’re doing our jobs. Thankfully this doesn’t seem to be the case.”

In regards to Beth’s whereabouts, he goes on to say:

“I don’t know! She got taken, she’s not back yet… I can say that Terminus has a lot of signs out there and it’s certainly possible that all kinds of different people out there could make their way to Terminus in some way, so maybe Beth shows up to Terminus in Season 5… maybe not. I think I can say that Beth’s story is not over. We’ll see her again, maybe in Season 5, maybe not.”

Now that Kirkman has weighed in on this, can this argument finally be settled so we don’t have to listen to this theory for the next 7 months?

If Emily Kinney (Beth) is not, in fact, going to be cannibal BBQ, is it safe to say she might play a much larger role in Season 5? One can only speculate what role that will be, but for now we’re going to leave it be. We’re sure whatever role she plays will be very instrumental to the plot. For the time being, we’re just too tired to speculate.

If you can’t help yourself from theorizing, feel free to sound off with your Beth speculations in the comments section below.

TWD Enthusiasts #52 – The Walking Dead E16:S4 – “A”

the-walking-dead-season-4-finale-review-a-photo

Is it October yet? The Walking Dead wrapped up its fourth and final season (April Fools!) last Sunday. After weeks of waiting, most of the groups were finally reunited in a reunion that could be described as…quick. And what about Terminus, you ask? Well we learned just enough about Terminus in the last 4 minutes of the episode to give us a good taste of what’s to come in Season 5. We even got to see Hershel in the finale, which was a great treat for fans of the recently deceased character. Not surprisingly, fan reactions to the finale have been mixed. Join Dennis and Sebastian as we discuss the Season 4 finale of The Walking Dead.

On this episode of The Walking Dead Enthusiasts Podcast we discuss:

The Walking Dead Season 4 Finale: Deleted Scene From Terminus [PHOTO]

Season 4 of AMC’s hit zombie drama ‘The Walking Dead’ wrapped last night to both positive and negative reviews from die-hard fans of the show. We now know that things did not shape up so well for our friends when they arrived at Terminus. We quickly discovered Terminus was not what it was advertised to be. Instead, our group of survivors was greeted with what appears to be cannibalistic cultists – barbequing survivors trapped in their “sanctuary.”

In this exclusive deleted scene of Rick, Michonne and Daryl from the Season 4 finale, we see something even more sinister going on at Terminus. Photo courtesy of SpoilerTV.

The-Walking-Dead-Season-4-Deleted-Scene

Unfortunately the photo seems to create more questions than answers (in typical The Walking Dead fashion). Based on the photo, it appears as though a number of human remains are surrounded by chained walkers. Are the folks at Terminus feeding survivors to walkers? This doesn’t exactly seem to match up with the theory that Terminus is a group of cannibals, as it wouldn’t make sense to waste “fresh meat.” Or could we be seeing a similar storyline to The Governor and Hershel, where they believe their once living loved ones are just sick and thus need to be cared for?

Honestly, we have no freaking idea! We’d love to hear your theories. Sound off in the comments section below.

‘Walking Dead’ Ups Masterson, Serratos and West to Series Regulars for Season 5

the-walking-dead-season-5-christian-serratos-alanna-masterson-andrew-j-west-amc

The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Alanna Masterson (Tara), Christian Serratos (Rosita) and Andrew J. West (Gareth) will be promoted to series regulars for Season 5 of The Walking Dead.

This comes as great news to many fans, as Tara has quickly gained much fanfare from enthusiasts of the show. And seeing that Rosita is the female equivalent to Daryl Dixon – the guys aren’t complaining much either.

This is especially important news for recently introduced West, who plays Terminus leader Gareth, as he will reprise his role in at least the first half of Season 5. This means that there will not be a quick resolution to the Terminus conflict.

Regarding Gareth, Robert Kirkman had this to say:

“Seeing Gareth and Rick and the people of Terminus and our survivors go head-to-head is going to be interesting. There is a very deep, dark and storied history to Terminus and how these people came to be that will be revealed in season five.”

Their promotions come nearly a year after The Walking Dead promoted Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese), Sonequa Martin-Green (Sasha) and Emily Kinney (Beth Greene) to regulars for season four. This season, the series also added Cudlitz (Abraham Ford) and McDermitt (Eugene Porter) as well as Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (Bob Stookey) as regulars.

Is October here yet? Are you excited the Terminus storyline will be developed more in Season 5, or would you rather a quick resolution? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below!

TWD Enthusiasts #51 – The Walking Dead E14:S4 – “The Grove”

the-walking-dead-the-grove-lizzie-carol

Just look at the flowers, Lizzie. Just look at the flowers. What an episode! After the last two week’s less than stellar episodes, The Walking Dead returned this week with one of the best episodes of the season, possibly the entire series. Carol has once again proven why she is one of the most intriguing characters on The Walking Dead. Tyreese even played a major role in the episode – about damn (hammer) time!

On this episode of The Walking Dead Enthusiasts Podcast we discuss:

  • The Walking Dead Enthusiasts getting sued by AMC & The Walking Dead
  • Did AMC Accidentally Confirm a Daryl/Beth Romance?
  • Robert Kirkman will be doing an AMA on Reddit – March 19th
  • Comic Overlaps from The Grove
  • Our Top 5 Moments from Season 4/Episode 14 of The Walking Dead: The Grove
  • Zombie Kill of The Week, Pick of the Week and episode ratings!

Sebastian’s Pick: 12 Highlights from the LOST Paleyfest Panel. Everyone’s favorite TV show LOST is celebrating its 10th anniversary! Many of the actors recently did a panel at Paleyfest to discuss the many mysteries surrounding the show. If you’ve seen the show, be sure to check out this video of all the Unanswered Questions of LOST!

Dennis’ Pick: The Young and the Dead by Scott Serkland. This is a new comic series based in the 80s – think Goonies meets The Walking Dead! The characters are a ton of fun and the art work is great! Currently only the first and second issue have been released. Issue 3 should be released later this year.

The Walking Dead: Did AMC Accidently Confirm A Daryl/Beth Romance?

Daryl-Beth-Romance-Confirmed-By-AMC

If you’ve been watching The Walking Dead recently, it hasn’t been hard to notice the blossoming relationship between fan-favorite Daryl Dixon and the recently acknowledged Beth Greene. The two have been spending some major time together after being separated from the rest of the group following the Governor’s prison raid in the Season 4 mid-season finale.

Speculations have been circling around whether Beth and Daryl are “romantically involved.” Up until now, nothing has been explicitly stated to confirm or deny the allegations; however, all evidence seems to suggest otherwise – e.g. consistent flirting, hand holding, piggy back rides, etc.

Fortunately for inquisitive fans, it appears as though AMC recently made a slip up on their own website, confirming the rumors that at least one of the characters has feelings for the other. In the details section of the episode guide for Episode 13 “Alone”, AMC accidently confirmed that Daryl’s feelings for Beth were not platonic. After the blunder went viral on Twitter, AMC quickly updated the website to adjust the wording to something more subtle. Check out the before and after screen shots below:

Before:

After:

Robert Kirkman to Host AMA on Reddit – March 19th

Robert-Kirkman-AMA-RedditHave you ever wanted to grill, compliment, or insult Robert Kirkman, the creator of The Walking Dead? If you’re a fan of the comics, you know that readers have the ability each month to submit letters via “Letter Hacks” in every new issue of the comic. These tend to be rather entertaining, as the letters verge from supportive to straight psychotic and verbally abusive. But Kirkman always seems to have fun with them either way! But for those of you who haven’t had the opportunity to pose a question to the king directly, it was recently announced Kirkman would be hosting an Reddit AMA on Wednesday, March 19th at 4PM (EST).

For those of you who are unfamiliar, an AMA stands for “Ask Me Anything”, where users log on to Reddit to pose questions to their favorite celebrities or people with unique professions or stories. Celebrities are required to verify their identities, and the entire thing is done in real-time, so make sure to login at 4PM since there will most likely be hundreds of questions asked. Kirkman will pick the best of the best and answer the questions directly. How awesome is that?

What questions are you thinking about posing to Kirkman? Sound off with your questions in the comments section below.

TWD Enthusiasts #50 – The Walking Dead E13:S4 – “Alone”

The-Walking-Dead-Alone

After last week’s disappointing showing, we’re back this week reviewing another less than stellar episode. It wasn’t all bad – the Daryl/Beth storyline actually stood at the forefront for us this week. We get a little back story on Bob, but again, not much that we didn’t already know. Maggie is still on the hunt for Glenn, while Sasha just wants to find safety in an abandoned warehouse. I guess she could care less about Tyreese.

In this episode of The Walking Dead Enthusiasts Podcast we discuss:

  • Robert Kirkman will be doing an AMA on Reddit next week
  • Listener feedback from our last episode
  • Comic Overlaps from previous episodes
  • Our Top 5 Moments from Season 4/Episode 13 of The Walking Dead: Alone
  • Zombie Kill of The Week, Pick of the Week and episode ratings!

Sebastian’s Pick: Resurrection on ABC. This is a new series that just premiered last Sunday. The plot is based on the novel The Returned, and follows a young boy who died years prior but was miraculously resurrected and is now returning to his family. We highly recommend this series for anyone who was a fan of LOST!

Dennis’ Pick: A 30,000 year old virus called the Pithovirus that was recently discovered in Russia which came back to life after being frozen for thousands of years. Is this the real life zombie apocalypse virus? You be the judge!

TWD Enthusiasts #49 – The Walking Dead E12:S4 – “Still”

The-Walking-Dead-Still

We’re officially at the midway point of the second half of Season 4! This week we got a deeper look into the life and times of fan favorite Daryl Dixon. Oh yeah, Beth was there too. This entire episode was focused on character development, but at the same time felt completely void of any said character development. There’s been a war brewing between those who liked this episode and those who didn’t. Fortunately for Dennis and I, neither of us liked it. What did you think about the latest episode of The Walking Dead? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below.

In this episode of The Walking Dead Enthusiasts Podcast we discuss:

  • The Walking Dead Game Season 2: A House Divided
  • A Hangout for the fans of The Walking Dead at Walker Stalker Con in Chicago
  • Comic Overlaps for this episode – although there weren’t really enough
  • Nightmare stories from Sebastian’s own experiences working at a country club
  • Our Top 5 Moments from Season 4/Episode 12 of The Walking Dead: Still
  • The power Daryl Dixon has over millions of fan boys and girls
  • Zombie Kill of The Week, Pick of the Week and episode ratings!

Sebastian’s Pick: Helix on Syfy. This is SyFy’s personal attempt at an original series about “viral outbreak.” It’s actually pretty good for a SyFy series, so we definitely suggest checking it out during off season. Just go into it with low expectations and you may just be pleasantly surprised!

Dennis’ Pick: If you’ve never had a reason to visit Japan, now you do. Japan’s Universal Studios recently opened a new theme park based on the very popular Resident Evil franchise. Check this out!
