The vision came when she was focusing on regulating her breathing, ears on high alert for wandering footsteps, eyes closed. It was if suddenly after being alone for all this time, someone was panting right along next to her. Tears trickled down her cheeks when visions of angel wings and crossbows fluttered through her thoughts.
Beth and Daryl were separated when she was kidnapped and despite running all night for her, they stayed separated a very long time with Daryl finding Joe’s group and never running into Rick, Michonne, and Carl. Now on a lonely night and a lonely road, they find each other again but somethings going on with Beth and Daryl needs to know what that is. He’ll do anything to find out.
They’ve only got five minutes, but after watching Beth get herself off on cam for three years five minutes is all the time Daryl needs.
Daryl Dixon was six years old when his mother told him that he had the gift. His mom was long gone by the time he realized what she had meant. He wishes she had explained that day so he could ask who had the dumbass idea to refer to this as a “gift”.
