Okay, so it wasn’t just some reason. The reason was he made friends with Beth Greene and ended up falling in love with her. That girl meant every damn thing to him. She was his best friend. That girl came into his life and somehow became the most important thing to him.
In a dim hospital room, Daryl is seriously ill. Beth and their four grown children are gathered around his bed. Encouraged by a nurse to talk to him, Beth begins telling their children stories of when her and Daryl first met, back in the fifties. And Daryl remembers Like it happened Yesterday.
Not exactly sure where this one is going to head but. . .
Daryl and Beth can’t be together. That’s just not how things work in small-town Georgia. A young lady from a well-known family didn’t just hook up with someone like Daryl. Didn’t ‘hook-up’ at all. But everyone has their secrets.
They met at the bar, but she’s nothing like the women he’s met in bars in the past. Then again he’s no longer the man he was back then either. He knows that if this is gonna go anywhere he’s gonna have to come clean. She doesn’t even want to be here until she is. And she doesn’t know she wants someone like him until she does. And then she isn’t sure how she ever lived without him.
