I’m never gonna understand the hiding Emily shit still. Like, not wanting her and Norman around each other, fine I get that. But not giving her a pic in the EW, like we know she’s okay???? We know we’ll see her again???? I just.
My best guess is they changed their promo plans with her. Originally, they weren’t going to do Beth/EK at SDCC, etc. so they didn’t have assets (aka images, artwork, etc.) ready/ok for media to use. I personally think it’s the wrong call not to promo her at all, but there may be a bigger plan at work that we can’t see yet.
The fact that they are DANCING around that scene in Alone when it comes to commentaries/featurettes/etc.
(͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Wait, they actually don’t say ANYTHING?
Because him and EK are totally filming tomorrow.
In my head, that EW picture of Norman sitting alone alongside the brick building is him prepping for a big Beth-related moment that is really emotional for Daryl. He just looks sad. He misses his girl.
Anonymous said: Do you think the "Still" commentaries provided more "proof" for Bethyl? It seems a little weird to me that a show that loves to keep people guessing, release commentaries like that plus the whole Normily stuff going on at Comic Con. Do you think the purpose of all of this is to get people "ready" for Bethyl? Since there are those who don't like it.
Oh anon, I wish I knew how to answer this question but I don’t. I live in the UK, I have not heard the commentary on Still. All I know of it is what people posted on Tumblr. As for Comic Con, once again, I can’t say. Maybe Norman and Emily were asked to be extra cutie patootie with each other, maybe they are just such good friends, maybe it was a combination of both.
What I do know is this. We can sit here day in day out freaking ourselves out with every little quote, every word choice, looking for Bethyl in everything anyone somehow related to the show says. We can read every article and frighten ourselves to death over it (I stand by my point that an interview is never translated onto the page as it was said and heard - trust me, I’m an editor), we can hang on every word, every gesture from any of the cast and crew. But, at the end of the day, the story has to make sense without all those things, without people having read interviews, without people having listened to the commentary.
All of this, exactly. Alone is it. Still is it. They’re all you need. The rest is just fluff. If you’re feeling doubtful or confused or freaked out, just sit down, and watch. For those that are reading the signs correctly, it’s right there on the screen.
