Why does Beta hate Negan
Comic Series – Beta confronts Negan, with many other Whisperers, after Negan crosses the border marking the entrance to the Whisperers’ territory. After Negan expresses his wish to join the Whisperers, Beta orders the other Whisperers to take Negan to Alpha.
Later that day, Beta confronts Michonne and Aaron, in search of Negan under orders by Rick Grimes of the Alexandria Safe-Zone, in the same location. Michonne attempts to explain that she means no harm and is only after a fugitive who crossed the border. Beta ignores this and with his fellow Whisperers attack the pair.
Michonne and Aaron try to deflate the situation and refuse to kill any of the Whisperers. Beta takes advantage of this and stabs Aaron in the gut. Before Beta can deliver a final fatal strike to Aaron, Michonne intercepts his strike and saves Aaron by deflecting his blades.
She then slashes Beta across his face with her katana causing him to scream. After Michonne kills another Whisperer, Beta knocks her to the ground remarking that she “will make a lovely mask”. Once again, Beta is interrupted before he can kill Aaron or Michonne this time by the Alexandrian militia led by Dwight.
The militia kills every member of Beta’s Whisperer party with the exception of Beta himself, who escapes. Beta returns to the Whisperer camp where upon seeing Alpha strike Negan he offers to kill him on the spot. She orders him not to do so. He then slams Negan against a tree for lying and claiming that he was unaware of the existence of the Whisperers.
After commenting about Beta’s impressive height and intimidating appearance, Negan says that despite his lies he has a lot to offer the Whisperers. As Negan begins to settle into the Whisperer community, Beta starts to question his presence. Alpha asks whether he is challenging her and her commands, but Beta assures her he isn’t and Alpha forgives him.
Most of the Whisperers appear amazed on how skilled Negan is at killing walkers though Beta does not trust him in the least. During the night, Negan sees a Whisperer woman being raped, but ends it and tries to kill the two men trying to rape her. Beta intervenes, stops him, and informs Negan of the men’s right to rape the girl and that he prevented her from being able to prove her strength.
Beta informs Alpha that Negan’s insult must not go unpunished, and Negan is forced to sleep by himself. After Beta discovers that killed her, Beta says that after Alpha’s death, there will never be another alpha (even though he still becomes the de facto leader of the Whisperers). He declares war against Negan and the rest of the joint communities, saying that they will all die.
Panicking after witnessing the immense herd of Whisperers, Gabriel Stokes, of Alexandria, who was keeping watch in a water tower for the advancement of the Whisperers, abandons his position and begins descending the ladder, begging for help. He suddenly falls, only for one of its railings leaving him stuck and in agonizing pain as his leg snaps.
Beta and the Whispers continue on their journey as Gabriel is devoured near to the bone by the horde. Disguised in the herd, Beta attempts to attack Dwight, but fails when Negan starts attacking. Negan first starts attacking Beta by hitting him with the back of a rifle, but Beta is getting the upperhand, but then Dwight throws him Lucille, and Beta does not stand a chance against him then.
Negan starts brutally beating beta with Lucille, dodging all of Beta’s attacks, before hitting Beta over the head over and over with Lucille. He hits Beta in the back so hard that Lucille is destroyed, infuriating Negan. However, the increasingly overwhelming herd prevents Negan from killing him, and two other Whisperers arrive and carry an unconscious Beta to safety.
One of Beta’s rescuers remarks that no one has ever seen Beta’s face, and goes to remove it; however, the barely conscious Beta fatally stabs him before he can, starting to say that no one may see his face, before passing out again. Once Beta comes to a few hours later, he and the three Whisperers around him vow to continue their plan.
Despite being in tremendous pain (even falling over a few times), Beta and his small group successfully direct their massive herd towards Alexandria, with Beta remarking that the dead will finish what they started. Weeks after Beta’s final attempt to destroy Alexandria and the surrounding communities fails after the group successfully directs most of the horde into the ocean and finishes off the rest of the herd, Beta separates himself into the surrounding wilderness, his attempt to avenge Alpha and the other whisperers a failure.
- One night he finds Paul Monroe and Aaron sleeping in the forest en route to the Hilltop.
- Sneaking up on Paul while Aaron is sleeping, Beta prepares to strike but Paul quickly spots him.
- The two brawl while Aaron rises and has to fight walkers surrounding them.
- Beta is almost about to plunge his blades into Paul until Aaron shoots Beta through the chest.
After finishing off the remaining walkers, Paul and Aaron remove Beta’s mask and are stunned to recognize him as a famous and wealthy basketball player and actor. Beta suddenly rises and cries that he has no name and is no one before succumbing to his wound with a thud to the ground.
Why is Beta so loyal to Alpha?
Beta has been Alpha’s loyal follower since the very beginning, but will there be a shift in their relationship moving into The Walking Dead season 10B? – Alpha is the kind of leader who rules with an iron fist on The Walking Dead, and Beta is her most loyal follower.
- However, if the first half of season 10 taught us anything, it’s that Beta is loyal to the Dead even more.
- If Alpha’s actions put the undead Guardians in danger, will Beta be able to stay loyal to her? Beta is the kind of person who values stability.
- Clearly he came from a place where he didn’t have a lot of stability, and Alpha was able to offer that to him and give him the direction he needed to survive in the new world.
Even though Lydia was there when Alpha and Beta first met, and even though Lydia is Alpha’s daughter, Beta is loyal to Alpha and doesn’t question her decisions with her daughter. The only thing that trumps Beta’s loyalty to Alpha is his dedication to the dead.
- If Alpha hadn’t sought shelter at the treatment facility when she did, it is easy to imagine that he would still be there communing with the dead.
- He was already thriving among them and he gave no indication that he wanted to leave.
- Beta is already on edge because the Whisperers have never questioned Alpha as much as they have since arriving in Alexandria.
Sure, she does a good job getting them to fall back in line, but there’s no mistaking Beta’s frustration that it’s happening at all. He doesn’t know that Lydia is alive and he is not happy about the faith Alpha has in Gamma or the way she allows Negan to be Negan.
- This is uncharted territory for Beta and when people are pushed to extremes their behavior can change as a result.
- If Alpha’s actions put the Whisperers at risk it’s one thing, but should she start sacrificing Guardians in her personal vendetta against the people who corrupted her daughter, don’t expect Beta to stand by and watch without making a move.
Of course, when the rest of the Whisperers find out that Alpha lied about Lydia, well, all bets are off. The Walking Dead returns Sunday, February 23 at 9pm on AMC.

Was Beta an NBA player
It is revealed in Issue 173 that Beta was a famous basketball athlete and an actor prior to the outbreak, and he hides his face to conceal his identity.

Beta is a fictional character in the comic book series The Walking Dead and the television series of the same name, where he was portrayed by Ryan Hurst, In both universes, Beta is the second-in-command of the Whisperers, a group of survivors who wear walker ( zombie ) skin to hide their presence from actual walkers.
Did Daryl recognize Beta?
So, who was Beta supposed to be in ‘The Walking Dead’? – If you’re a fan of the series, you are aware that, unlike many of his fellow Whisperers, Beta never removed his zombie-flesh mask because he didn’t want people to know his real identity. During the episode titled “Look At the Flowers,” it was revealed that before the apocalypse, Beta was a famous country music singer. Source: AMC Following the zombie outbreak, Beta went crazy and joined Alpha. Though Beta’s identity was mainly kept a secret, eagle-eyed fans noticed a few clues regarding his past. In the spinoff series Fear the Walking Dead, an album cover featuring Half Moon’s face was quickly shown before it was destroyed by a group of Walkers.

Who is stronger Negan or Beta?
Adam says – I hate to be the contrarian, but I think Negan has a good shot of winning this fight. Sure, Beta is bigger and stronger, but Negan has some advantages as well. Nobody has gotten in Beta’s head the way that the former leader of the Saviors can.

Was Negan in love with Alpha?
The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan explains the ‘just weird enough’ kiss Negan shared with The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan explains the “just weird enough” kiss Negan shared with Alpha (Samantha Morton) after slitting her throat in Season 10 episode 12, “Walk With Us.” There Alpha committed to killing daughter Lydia (Cassady McClincy) after she refused to take her mother’s place as leader of the Whisperers, choosing instead to align herself with Daryl (Norman Reedus) and the survivors.
- After spending just three days among her ranks, becoming the first Whisperer to be intimate with Alpha, Negan used Lydia as bait to lure Alpha to a shack in the woods where he slashed her throat before delivering Alpha’s zombified head to Carol (Melissa McBride).
- My thought was, it was a brutal way to go, having your throat slit.
I know, having had my own throat slit,” Morgan said on Talking Dead about the way Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) defeated Negan some eight years earlier in the Season 8 finale, “Wrath.” Alpha and Negan “had formed kind of this weird relationship in a very short amount of time he gave her every opportunity to say she wouldn’t kill Lydia,” Morgan explained.
I don’t know exactly what his plan would have been had she said ‘I’m not going to kill my daughter,’ but I think that Negan had — I won’t say sympathy — but there was just a moment that was giving her some peace during that kind of very violent end.” Just before murdering Alpha, Negan opened up about his past when he referenced late wife Lucille, who lost her hair during a battle with pancreatic cancer.
Despite their intimacy, there were no real feelings between Negan and Alpha. “I don’t think they were in love or anything,” Morgan said. “I know they weren’t in love or anything, but it was also just weird enough that I thought was a very Negan thing to do.” The Walking Dead Season 10 next airs episode 15, “The Tower,” Sunday, April 5 at 9/8c on AMC.
Is Beta worse than Alpha twd?
Alpha is one of the great villains on The Walking Dead, but Beta could be worse – The funny thing about supervillains is that they’re usually not the ones you have to worry about. Sure, they’re evil and they’re dangerous, but it’s their zealots that are truly the ones you have to watch out for.
When it comes to The Walking Dead, Alpha was terrifying and it’s hard to imagine anyone being worse than she is. But then there’s Beta. One of Alpha’s great talents was in convincing people to do her bidding. When you get down to it, why on earth would anyone follow someone like Alpha. How do you go from trying to survive a zombie apocalypse to skinning the zombies and wearing their flesh, forsaking all creature comforts (the ones that are left, anyway) to live in the woods, give up their identities, stop talking and devour the earth like a plague of locusts? We know from real life that cult leaders are charismatic people who find ways to entice people into the fold by preying upon their weaknesses.
Alpha was a master manipulator; she was manipulating her husband and daughter long before the fall of civilization. She gets into your head like Khan’s little worm things on Ceti Alpha V in Star Trek II, She burrows in deep and sets up shop so that you don’t know which way is up until she tells you.
Alpha was terrifying. Beta might be worse. The problem with zealots who rise to power is that absolute power corrupts, absolutely. Beta was a loyal follower, but when he started to see Alpha deviating from her own playbook he was immediately skeptical because the leader is not supposed to change the rules.
His loyalty was second only to the belief system – which Alpha created – and with Alpha gone he no longer has anyone guiding his actions. Without Alpha, Beta has no one to tell him what to do. He’s so committed to the dead that he is willing to do whatever it takes to keep the herd going even if that means killing his own people.
Beta sees nothing but the mission, he’s all or nothing. Alpha’s lingering feelings for Lydia were a weakness in Beta’s mind. Beta has no attachments. Alpha established a border, and rules for crossing the border. Beta has no rules. Alpha might have seen value in keeping certain people alive. Beta sees more value in death.
At the end of the day, Alpha and Beta might be tied in terms of their evil quotient, but in a fight you have more of a chance with someone like Alpha. With Beta, all bets are off. He’s like the shark in Jaws: Once he bites he doesn’t let go and the only way to stop him is to blow him up.

Which is stronger alpha or Beta
The Ionizing and Penetration Power of Radiation – With all the radiation from natural and man-made sources, we should quite reasonably be concerned about how all the radiation might affect our health. The damage to living systems is done by radioactive emissions when the particles or rays strike tissue, cells, or molecules and alter them.
- These interactions can alter molecular structure and function; cells no longer carry out their proper function and molecules, such as DNA, no longer carry the appropriate information.
- Large amounts of radiation are very dangerous, even deadly.
- In most cases, radiation will damage a single (or very small number) of cells by breaking the cell wall or otherwise preventing a cell from reproducing.
The ability of radiation to damage molecules is analyzed in terms of what is called ionizing power, When a radiation particle interacts with atoms, the interaction can cause the atom to lose electrons and thus become ionized. The greater the likelihood that damage will occur by an interaction is the ionizing power of the radiation. Much of the threat from radiation is involved with the ease or difficulty of protecting oneself from the particles. How thick of a wall do you need to hide behind to be safe? The ability of each type of radiation to pass through matter is expressed in terms of penetration power.
The more material the radiation can pass through, the greater the penetration power and the more dangerous it is. In general, the greater mass present, the greater the ionizing power, and the lower the penetration power. Comparing only the three common types of ionizing radiation, alpha particles have the greatest mass.
Alpha particles have approximately four times the mass of a proton or neutron and approximately 8,000 times the mass of a beta particle. Because of the large mass of the alpha particle, it has the highest ionizing power and the greatest ability to damage tissue.
- That same large size of alpha particles, however, makes them less able to penetrate matter.
- They collide with molecules very quickly when striking matter, add two electrons, and become a harmless helium atom.
- Alpha particles have the least penetration power and can be stopped by a thick sheet of paper or even a layer of clothes.
They are also stopped by the outer layer of dead skin on people. This may seem to remove the threat from alpha particles, but it is only from external sources. In a nuclear explosion or some sort of nuclear accident, where radioactive emitters are spread around in the environment, the emitters can be inhaled or taken in with food or water and once the alpha emitter is inside you, you have no protection at all.
- Beta particles are much smaller than alpha particles and therefore, have much less ionizing power (less ability to damage tissue), but their small size gives them much greater penetration power.
- Most resources say that beta particles can be stopped by a one-quarter inch thick sheet of aluminum.
- Once again, however, the greatest danger occurs when the beta emitting source gets inside of you.
Gamma rays are not particles, but a high energy form of electromagnetic radiation (like x-rays, except more powerful). Gamma rays are energy that has no mass or charge. Gamma rays have tremendous penetration power and require several inches of dense material (like lead) to shield them.
|Particle||Symbol||Mass||Penetrating Power||Ionizing Power||Shielding|
|Alpha||\(\alpha\)||\(4 \mathrm \)||Very Low||Very High||Paper Skin|
|Beta||\(\beta\)||\(1 / 2000 \mathrm \)||Intermediate||Intermediate||Aluminum|
|Gamma||\(\gamma\)||0 (energy only)||Very High||Very Low||2 inches lead|
The safest amount of radiation to the human body is zero. It is impossible to completely avoid ionizing radiation, so the next best goal is to be exposed to as little as possible. The two best ways to minimize exposure are to limit time of exposure, and to increase distance from the source.
Is a Beta stronger than an alpha?
Characteristics – Whereas Omega Werewolves look more human than wolf and Alpha Werewolves are more wolf than they are human, Betas are literately in the middle of both. The Alphas are the leaders and the omegas are the outcasts, but the Betas are the members of the pack.
Is Beta more powerful than alpha
Beta Particles – Beta particles (β) are small, fast-moving particles with a negative electrical charge that are emitted from an atom’s nucleus during radioactive decay. These particles are emitted by certain unstable atoms such as hydrogen-3 ( tritium ), carbon-14 and strontium-90,
Beta particles are more penetrating than alpha particles, but are less damaging to living tissue and DNA because the ionizations they produce are more widely spaced. They travel farther in air than alpha particles, but can be stopped by a layer of clothing or by a thin layer of a substance such as aluminum.
Some beta particles are capable of penetrating the skin and causing damage such as skin burns. However, as with alpha-emitters, beta-emitters are most hazardous when they are inhaled or swallowed.
Do you ever see betas face?
Beta’s voice was recognized by one of the Whisperers. – A man captures Beta when he’s most vulnerable and pays for it. Jace Downs/AMC After killing Gamma, part of Beta’s face was exposed. A nearby Whisperer sees Beta’s face and recognizes him. “It’s you,” says the Whisperer. “Your voice sounded familiar, but.” He never gets to say another word as Beta kills him on the spot.
Why does Beta hide his face
Post-Apocalypse – At some point after the outbreak, Beta and his best friend took refuge in a survivor camp though it was eventually overrun by walkers, forcing the two to take refuge in an abandoned hospital. The friend was later bitten, and shortly thereafter died and reanimated, driving Beta to insanity.
He could not bring himself to put his friend down and let him roam the hospital as a walker. Beta also decided to wear a ski mask to hide his identity from strangers to preserve his image as an inspiring musician before the apocalypse while descending into a ruthless killer to stay alive. Sometime later, Dee and her daughter Lydia arrived at the hospital to escape from walkers.
Beta reluctantly allowed them to stay one night but forbade them from entering his private quarters. He eventually formed a bond with Dee due to them sharing similar views about the new world though after she tried to see his face, he demanded her and her daughter to leave.
Lydia however eventually trespassed on his side of the hospital, forcing her mother to follow her and ended up killing Beta’s zombified best friend, to his fury. Dee calmed him down and welcomed him to join them. Beta refused to leave his best friend behind and Dee convinced him to skin his face off and wear it to continue hiding his identity (to which she and Lydia learned).
Beta accepted and also took his friend’s shirt. After meeting Beta, Dee killed Hera, the leader of a large group of survivors that would eventually become known as the ” Whisperers “. The two took over the Whisperers with Beta as the group’s second-in-command, while Dee took the name of “Alpha” and became the leader.
- Under their direction, they instructed their people to skin walkers and wear their skin in order to mask their scents and move freely among herds.
- This was also used as a method to attack other survivor camps and settlements.
- The group members were also demanded to abandon their previous lives and beliefs and become nothing but hardened, primitive survivors.
They survived off the land by moving from place to place. Beta continued to protect his identity strictly and always wears his mask, even in the safety of their camp.
Does Negan become a good guy?
Ever since Negan made his infamous debut on The Walking Dead back in Season 6, he’s always been regarded as the main antagonist. It’s a fair opinion, especially when you consider the horrific, twisted things he’s done during his time on the show. Negan will never truly be a good guy, but he can redeem himself, albeit slightly.
- It can be difficult to see the good in a man who killed off two beloved characters merely minutes into his first appearance.
- However, with Negan making significant moves to become Mr.
- Nice Guy in the spinoff Dead City, maybe it’s time to take a minute to look at his sweet side.
- From the time he made Carl dinner to the times he saved fan favorite characters’ lives, there are times when Negan is a good guy in The Walking Dead franchise.
Updated by Katie Doll on September 11, 2023: With Negan surviving until the end of The Walking Dead and co-leading a spinoff with Maggie Rhee, fans are excited to see where he’ll end up. Negan has been an absolute fan favorite for his entire time onscreen and there’s no doubt viewers want him to have a happy ending despite all the bad he’s done.
Is Beta the strongest in TWD?
6 Beta – He may have been the second fiddle to Alpha in The Walking Dead, but Beta represented the brutal hulking force of a man who had nothing to lose, and no connections to hold him back. As the primary enforcer inside the Whisperers, Beta’s job was to carry out Alpha’s orders and ensure ultimate loyalty to the ideology they shared.
Why do walkers follow the whisperers?
They control the walkers by taking advantage of their herding instincts. They’ve learned how to guide packs of walkers around almost like sheepdogs herding sheep. Carefully coordinated movements among the disguised Whisperers cause the real walkers to follow along.
Whose face does Alpha wear
This Tales of the Walking Dead article contains spoilers. Dee (Samantha Morton) isn’t the kind of woman who can let her guard down and relax. When you’ve been through as much horrible stuff on The Walking Dead as she has, it’s natural to have a little trouble slipping into a cocktail dress and going to a dinner party, but that’s just what she has to do.
Not because she wants to; Dee is definitely not dinner party material. She has to, because Lydia wants to, and because the leader of her community wants her to. Dee will do anything for her daughter. It’s been a full year since Dee killed her husband and the rest of the survivors trapped in an old factory, because they were too weak to survive outside of its walls.
They’d slow her down. Dee doesn’t need an anchor. Like a bizarro world Rick Grimes, Dee’s only mission on Tales of the Walking Dead is to protect her daughter and train her how to survive in this new world of the dead. Far from the hungry, panicking survivors huddled in a smelly factory, Dee and Lydia (Scarlett Blum) have been taken in by the benign party dictatorship of Brooke (Lauren Glazier), who heads up a band of cheerful survivors traveling up and down the swampy rivers of undead America in an honest-to-goodness steamboat.
Brooke is riding the apocalypse out in style, and the survivors gathered around her are going to do likewise. That means Zumba classes on the Lido deck and formal parties in the dining room, with formal place settings, white table cloths, Dixieland jazz, and mandatory formal attire. Brooke is clinging tenaciously to a world that barely existed before the walkers; now that they’re plying the river from refueling station to refueling station, it’s even more ridiculous to behold.
Brooke has certain expectations, and if Dee doesn’t want to meet them, then she’ll be off the boat, and Lydia will be staying behind to enjoy birthday parties and desserts as the world decays. Clearly, Lydia isn’t learning the kind of hard lessons needed for survival, and Brooke’s relaxed attitude towards security—they’re in a river in a swamp, with gators and snakes to keep the walkers at bay and walkers to keep the people at bay—is second only to her attitude towards Dee’s parenting when it comes to setting off Dee’s internal alarms.
Dee isn’t a great parent by any means; we’ve seen plenty of that in action on mainline The Walking Dead, but she’s got a good sense of danger, and when she keys on newcomer Billy (Nick Basta) as a suspicious character doing suspicious things, she might be onto something Brooke is completely unwilling to see.
Dee will do anything to keep her daughter safe, whether it’s dressing up or stealing knives from the kitchen to protect herself from potential outside threats. Unsurprisingly, things go bad on the ship when Dee’s paranoia is ignored. She might be abrasive, but she’s survived a long time on her own and kept her daughter alive.
- Her comments about the viper in their midst go unheeded and Billy’s gang take over the boat, promising Brooke they’ll keep her in charge of the fun stuff, and Billy will take over the hard decisions of survival, like culling the drains on resources.
- Billy is willing to adapt to the new world, even if Brooke isn’t.
But Billy’s new order is a direct threat to Lydia. So, Billy and friends have to die, Brooke and friends are left to fend for themselves, and Dee is off with Lydia again to train the girl how to hunt walkers and keep herself safe. It goes poorly. Lydia is resistant, trying to salvage her mother’s last vestiges of humanity at every turn, only for Dee to strip those away, one by one, painting herself and her daughter with walker blood and hiding under a spatchcocked walker corpse to avoid danger.
Lydia only wants to go back to the boat, go back to a world that no longer exists, and when she tells Dee that she hears the fairies whispering to her from the trees, and she wants to go join them, Dee interprets that as a signal to make Lydia “look at the flowers”. However, Lydia’s demise is interrupted, not by fairies, but by people wearing walker skins as masks, who come shambling out of the swamp to stay Dee’s killing hand.
A brief meeting with the Whisperer’s leader Hera (Anne Beyer) and a blow to the head later, and Dee is gone. Instead, “Dee” smashes to Alpha in her cave, head shaved and filthy, talking to the only person who could understand the burdens of leadership and raising an ungrateful child in a zombie-filled world.
- Alpha has been unburdening herself to the mummified head of Hera, the very woman who took her in, taught her the ways of the Whisperers, and saved Lydia’s life.
- When Dee spares Brooke at Lydia’s behest, she slashes the cruise director from hell across the cheek with her blade.
- Dee calls that her mark.
In that sense, Brooke will always remember Dee, and her failure as a leader, wherever she goes in. With Dee complete abandoned, Alpha chooses to wear Hera’s face in a similar fashion. Brooke’s scarred face is a warning; Hera’s desiccated face is a tribute.
Is Daryl canonically asexual?
‘The Walking Dead’ Diluting Daryl Dixon’s Asexual Appeal Is A Downer When I first binge-watched ‘The Walking Dead’ in 2020, I already had nine seasons to go through and none of the waiting other fans had to do for over a decade. Over the next few days, one character that stood out the most was Norman Reedus’ Daryl Dixon.
- New episodes of season 10 have now been added on Netflix, with a bland flashback to Dixon’s solitary break into the wildness.
- Let’s start with some background – Daryl Dixon wasn’t in the original character roster of writer Robert Kirkman’s comic series.
- In the live-action show, Dixon starts off as an aggressive introverted redneck with a cross-bow and an asshole older brother.
As the show progresses, he slowly becomes part of the inner pack of protagonists trying to survive a zombie apocalypse. It was hard not to notice how Dixon seemed asexual. Despite developing close bonds with several women characters, he never casts a longing lust-filled look at anybody.
- He is a reliable friend, a model-member of the pack, a brother-figure to the leader Rick Grimes and a father-figure to the younger kids.
- All his efforts to keep his people safe makes him more endearing because his actions are selfless.
- In other words, Dixon’s deeds are not ruled by his dick.
- Or so it seems.
When his perceived ‘asexuality’ hit me, I immediately thought of writing a little piece, but a quick search on the internet revealed that his sexuality has been a matter of debate over the last few years. There were many fans who thought the same; actor Norman Reedus has in-fact even received fan-mail thanking him for portraying an asexual character.
However, Robert Kirkman, the writer of the show and comics, revealed that Dixon is “straight” and “somewhat asexual”. Some fans were happy with the “somewhat asexual” statement, others – not so much. And the makers of the show clearly seem to remain as ambiguous as they can about this particular character, due to his sheer popularity.
Because at the end of the day – there are way more fans out there shipping him with other women protagonists. While the “LGBTQ” acronym has been extended to include “IA”, ‘intersex’ and ‘asexual’; they still have very little representation in the entertainment industry.
- In ‘The Walking Dead’, there are gay, lesbian characters, so it isn’t like the creators have a lot to risk if they add some more sexual diversity.
- Maybe the asexual community is too small for big producers to care about their visibility.
- It’s easier to pander to heterosexual ‘ships’ and rake in more TRPs, than bother about a minority group.
One only has to take the example of the popular TV character Sheldon Cooper from ‘Big Bang Theory’ to understand how asexual representation is sometimes deliberately erased to introduce ‘regular’ romantic themes. From the start, Sheldon Cooper was projected as a geek with no interest in romance/sex and yet, as the show progressed, he was practically forced into a hetero relationship.
And in later episodes, he is pretty much bullied by his friends into establishing a physical relationship with his girlfriend. ‘The Walking Dead’ makers had the chance to change things and not go the ‘Big Bang Theory’ way, but they have chosen not to. Daryl Dixon could’ve been an asexual icon, but going by the new episodes of Season 10, his ‘somewhat asexual’ appeal has already been diluted with a ‘somewhat romantic’ sub-plot.
Although nothing sexual transpires between Daryl and this new character, the flashback story was so pointless, that it seemed like the makers introduced it with the sole purpose of ‘somewhat’ clarifying that ‘hey, this guy is straight’. In-fact, with the way the show is progressing, fans might not be too surprised if Dixon ends up shacking with one of the woman characters after all, and has a couple of babies himself.
Is Beta jealous of Negan?
|“||Yeah thats’ right. It’s me. Now get the fuck up off the ground. So I can put you in it. Like a coffin. Because you’ll be fucking dead. After I fucking kill you, you fucking asshole.||“|
Negan and Beta have a hostile and scornful relationship. Beta sees Negan as threatening and weak, and doesn’t have much respect for him. He asks Alpha if he can kill Negan, though Alpha doesn’t allow him. Beta, having implied feelings for Alpha, begins to grow jealous of her fondness for Negan, and views him with disdain.
- Negan thinks Beta is awesome for his size and dual wielded knives at first, but later begins to dislike Beta for the way he is treated by the giant.
- Later, after Negan kills Alpha, Beta is furious at Negan and plots to avenge Alpha.
- Negan’s dislike for Beta soon turns into pure enmity when Negan’s weapon of choice, Lucille, is broken after beating Beta with the bat several times causing it to shatter into wooden shards.
As a result, both severely wish death upon the other.
Who kills Beta walking dead?
Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for “The Walking Dead” season 10 finale, “A Certain Doom.” Beta met his end on Sunday’s episode when he was killed by Daryl. Some fans may be frustrated that the scene between Negan, Daryl, and Beta — three fan favorites — was over before it really even began. Ryan Hurst was a bit bummed out by it, telling Insider, “The fact that we didn’t really get a firm real good scene together, I think, we were sad about that.” Showrunner Angela Kang said they didn’t want it to feel too similar to the long brawl between Beta and Daryl from earlier in the season. “I know some people may have the same frustration, but we felt that it seemed right for where these characters were at,” Kang told Insider. “Daryl wanted to be strategic in getting in, Negan kind of helped set it up.” Visit Insider’s homepage for more stories,

It should have been a real treat since the actors who play them — Ryan Hurst, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Norman Reedus — are all friends in real life. Daryl swooped in for a quick kill before Beta even had a chance to respond. Jackson Lee Davis/AMC If you were frustrated by the too-short scene between the trio, Hurst shares in that disappointment a bit. “I think we were all kind of a little sad at that part because the three of us are such great friends, hanging out on the weekends all the time, and riding motorcycles every other weekend,” Hurst told Insider.
Who was Beta before Beta?
Maryland – Prior to the outbreak, Beta was a professional and famous country musician known as “Half Moon”. For unknown reasons, he visited a rehabilitation center, and became close friends with his rehab counsellor while there. At some point shortly before the outbreak, he killed a home invader and felt remorse after seeing that the invader had a “Half Moon” T-shirt on.
Who was Beta behind the mask?
This Walking Dead article contains spoilers. “Walk With Us,” the 12th episode of The Walking Dead season 10, changed the course of the rest of the season in a single night. From the fall of the Hilltop to the high-profile deaths throughout the episode, “Walk With Us” is undoubtedly the best episode of the latest season of the zombie drama.
While the ending of the episode left us with a few questions about Alpha, Negan, and just how the Whisperer War will proceed for the rest of the season, “Walk With Us” did tease the answer to one of this story arc’s biggest mysteries: who is Beta? Whose face is behind the mask worn by Alpha’s hulking second in command? Alpha’s most devout follower has moved through the episodes like a supernatural force able to cut through ranks of Alexandrians and Hilltop warriors, all while taking a beating.
Even a fall through an elevator shaft that would have killed any normal man seemed to barely leave a scratch on Beta. We all know the actor behind the mask, of course. It’s Ryan Hurst from Sons of Anarchy, But we knew little about his character’s backstory before the penultimate episode of the season, “Look at the Flowers,” which finally confirms a long-standing theory about Beta’s identity.
- Who was Beta before he became Beta and walked with the Whisperers? What is his real name? As confirmed in “Look at the Flowers,” Beta was a famous country singer who performed under the stage name Half Moon before the zombie outbreak that brought about the end of civilization.
- At some point during the ensuing chaos, Half Moon lost his mind and became the killer monstrosity who joined Alpha to form the Whisperers.
In the episode, we watch as Beta consults both Alpha’s severed head and his old records to figure out what he’s supposed to do now that his leader is dead. He blasts his songs for all of the surrounding walkers to hear. The horde gathers around the saloon where Beta is having his existential crisis, forming a grotesque audience for what will likely be Half Moon’s final concert.
By the end of the episode, Beta has gained some “clarity,” deciding that he will lead the horde that’s gathered for him to Alexandria. Beta listening to his old music was a particularly surprising development, considering that he’d previously refused to acknowledge his old identity. During Mary’s struggle with Beta in “Walk With Us,” the former Whisperer managed to tear off a portion of his mask, revealing one side of his face.
Later, when another Whisperer recognized Beta’s face and remarked that he thought he “recognized his voice,” Beta quickly silenced him with his knife. The character’s true identity was first teased in an episode of Fear the Walking Dead, For those who missed the easter egg, in Fear the Walking Dead season 5 episode 14, “Today and Tomorrow,” there’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it shot of a record with a familiar face on the cover: Hurst wearing a cowboy hat, which suggesting that Beta had once been a famous country singer.
- This was later teased further when Alpha was heard listening to a country song in The Walking Dead season 10 episode 5, “What It Always Is,” that sounded like it was sung by Hurst.
- Beta’s backstory on the show does somewhat mesh with the origin of his comic counterpart, although the careers were different.
In Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard’s comic book, Beta was once a famous basketball player who later became an actor. His face and identity are finally revealed as he lies dying, defeated after his final attack on the communities. Perhaps a similar fate awaits the TV version of the character.
Why did the whisperer recognizes Beta
How Did Another Whisperer Recognize Beta Under His Mask On ‘The Walking Dead’? Warning: Spoilers for the tenth The Walking Dead, including this week’s episode, “Walk with Us,” will be found below. Midway through this week’s episode of, “Walk with Us,” Gamma — played by Thora Birch () — is stabbed in the stomach and killed by Beta, second-in-command of The Whisperers (). AMC It isn’t much, but it’s enough so that another Whisperer, who walks up on Beta at the moment, instantly recognizes him. “It’s you,” he says, looking upon Beta with awe. “Your voice sounded familiar, but ” The Whisperer can’t get anything else out before Beta quickly murders him.
Why? Because Beta doesn’t want to be recognized. He doesn’t anyone to know who he is. It’s because Beta — who never removes his mask — is actually famous in real life (or at least, famous in The Walking Dead universe). Who is he? We don’t know Beta’s real name, but we do know that he was a famous country-and-western singer (who also had an alcohol problem, which tracks with country singer).
In an Easter egg over on Fear the Walking Dead last season, when one of its characters, Daniel, dropped a crate of albums, revealing this: AMC That is the man beneath the mask on the cover of an album, one good enough that apparently Daniel — a music enthusiast — thought enough to bring with him. When the other characters on The Walking Dead finally figure out it’s him, they’re probably going to be very shocked and may also have a good laugh at his expense, assuming he is dead when they figure it out.
Is Beta the strongest twd?
6 Beta – He may have been the second fiddle to Alpha in The Walking Dead, but Beta represented the brutal hulking force of a man who had nothing to lose, and no connections to hold him back.
