Gimple Talks About Killing Beth
We absolutely wanted to tell this very tragic story of someone who found out that they were strong all along. And even so strong as to not be able to swallow injustice when it is given to them with Noah being left behind. And strong enough to believe that maybe she would lash out against this person — and really sort of underline who she didn’t want to become, which is someone who is compromised like Dawn. That’s the tragedy, that the compromised person took her down, which is a very painful story.
Beth’s motivation to stab Dawn was very confusing to me. I don’t think the story came across like Gimple planned it.
Having said that, it makes me wonder why other symbolism is behind the death of Tyreese that we are simply not getting.
To this day, killing Beth makes no sense to me.
Although, Beth was a teenage girl and teenage girls are wont to do irrational things. Because of that, and because I have a teenage step daughter, I can wrap my brain around why Beth thinks that stabbing Dawn was a good idea.
I didn’t get all of the symbolism that Gimple tried to convey.
Ultimately, it doesn’t matter why Beth stabbed Dawn right? I mean, in the end, it doesn’t really matter anyway.
