On The Walking Dead, Beth and Daryl get drunk and play “I Never.” No, seriously, that happens.

We can all agree that there are certain aspects of AMC’s The Walking Dead that seem a little, shall we say, far-fetched. The most improbable of these scenarios will be reviewed here each week.

Mildly Improbable

Eighteen months into the apocalypse and we finally see people going all Bear Grylls on some improbable foodstuffs. It’s about time!

Daryl and Beth play the most awkward game of “I Never” in our nation’s history, which leads to both of them getting rather drunk. Not having a “designated murderer” when you drink is a huge mistake.

Pretty Improbable

Beth wants to get drunk with Daryl. Join the club, sweetheart. You could go back to that car trunk and get a little closer, if you catch my drift. Seriously, she is on a MISSION to get a drink, and it’s a bit odd.

Beth throws a rock two feet and makes four walkers change course. Really? She couldn’t have thrown the rock 20 yards?

Extremely Improbable

I had to wonder when Beth picked out a totally impractical preppy ensemble at the golf store. But then when Daryl hit her with walker guts and ruined her white cardigan I almost died. This show is basically a sitcom.

Daryl says peach schnapps isn’t good? What a dirty liar. I practically lived on the stuff my senior year of college. He decides he cannot let Beth imbibe that crap, and finds her moonshine instead. Lord, that’ll put hair on a gal’s chest.


Daryl and Beth were in that trunk together for how long, and neither of them had to “take whiz/dump” (as they say on Family Feud). Impossible.

“Too Long, Didn’t Watch” Episode Recap

We catch up with Daryl and Beth as they find a golf course clubhouse of horrors, then a filthy shack with a shed full of moonshine. They get drunk, talk about Daryl’s predictably horrible childhood, and Daryl reveals that before the apocalypse his profession was “drifter” with Merle. Norman Reedus clinches several Emmy nominations at once in these scenes. The episode ends with them burning down the shack and flipping it off as they leave. Awesome.
