The heavily promoted death in The Walking Dead's mid-season finale — RIP Beth (Emily Kinney), who died accidentally at the hands of Officer Dawn Lerner (Christine Woods) — was, without question, a major shocker.
Exhibits A, B, and C: Here are Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green), and Noah (Tyler James Williams) being shocked.
Although, no one was more shocked than Dawn...especially when Daryl (Norman Reedus) retaliated with a single bullet to the brain.
And that led to the single most heartbreaking moment of the episode — and really, all of Season 5:
Daryl. Dixon. Crying.
Because nothing is sadder than Daryl Dixon crying.
Although, to be fair, it's not like Beth didn't warn him.
A previous version of this story referred to Emily Kinney as Emma Kinney. Sorry, our eyes were a little blurry from all the tears.
