So, I'm a long time Walking Dead fan and I confess I have never liked Beth Greene. Every scene she's in is a waste of my time and I usually go and find something else to do while she's on. She sings. So what.
So this last episode addressed the yawning story line of what happened to Beth. I really hoped she had been disappeared forever in favour of more interesting characters and their story lines. I know I wouldn't have given her another thought. What may have happened to Beth didn't even occupy one of my brain cells.
Imagine my disappointment when virtually an entire episode was devoted to a story line involving a person I had hoped I'd seen the last of. Will she turn out to be a bad ass? Don't care. I walked out after forty minutes even though the possibility existed that there might have been a scene with Daryl in it. I rejected that so I wouldn't have to see one more second of Beth!!! That is messed up, Walking Dead writers. Messed up!
As my friend Dan wrote here at Fansided LightlyBuzzed, at least we got to see her annoying face slapped. Twice. He made GIF's. They're gratifying. Oh and I don't want to hear from people trolling because they think I'm advocating physical violence against women. If she were a guy and he was this annoying I'd feel exactly the same way.

As this article on Yahoo TV said:
Instead of a normal episode of The Walking Dead this week, we got Beth starring in some B-movie zombie flick with wooden acting, laughable dialogue, and barely any zombies. If this was called Zombie Hospital and airing at 2 a.m. on Syfy, we would've changed the channel - Dave Nemetz
We would've changed the channel, AMC!!!
Is the Hospital story line even in the comic? The writers said they were following the comics a little more closely this season.
Meanwhile, who will save Beth? Who the hell cares.
