Daryl and Beth seemed like they were about to kiss or something at some point. My heart fluttered, lol. Now she's been captured and while the show probably won't go there... society crumbled, anarchists running shit, law of the jungle... she's probably going to be beaten, raped, beaten more, raped more, killed and possibly eaten depending on how low supplies are.
It definitely seemed like the episode could go that way but I think that was intentional to show us that it wouldn't go that way, if that makes sense. They were alone, isolated, shared more with each other than ever before and got drunk together, but still didn't cross that line.
Now that she's been captured I could certainly see them going down the rape route and later Daryl finding her and murdering the shit out of the guys who did it. Not too sure about her getting eaten... though that would make a very dramatic episode.
Gas is pretty reliable. It's piped underground so falling treelines won't mess it up. In like every house I've lived in, the gas has never gone out. The power might go down in a storm or something, but the gas is always pumping. Up to a point, I think a lot of stuff should still be working in Walking Dead. A lot of systems like that are basically automated and could run themselves for the most part until they ran out of resources to feed off of.
Ah, that makes sense. I've always thought more things should still be working since lots of stuff is automated but whenever they find a new place the power is always out and I think the water too? Maybe I'm wrong about that though.
