this is my favorite gif of all time.
You guys, I’m really really hoping that the upcoming episode “Us" is a Bethyl reunion. Or you know, like them coming back together again and ultimately realizing that they truely care for one another and that Daryl is more scared than he was before of losing her, and vows he’ll never let her out of his sight again…
I was intrigued when she was pissed off at him for leaving with Merle in season 3. I felt the shipper radar go off in 4x01 when she’s “not saying goodbye” to Zach and Daryl looks back at her over his shoulder and mutters, “damn romance novel.” Then, not so much The Hug, but when they pull out of the hug and they miss each other’s gaze like three or four times while she pulls her sweater back up onto her shoulder. By the next morning, I was a full fledged Bethyl shipper with a pretty set of Shipper Goggles and a membership card.
I’d never shipped ANYTHING on TWD before, so it was an odd feeling, but Jesus, the show makes it REALLY hard to not ship them.
