Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) and Beth Greene (Emiley Kinney) share a special bond in "The Walking Dead." No, they do not have any plans to hook up. Norman Reedus cleared the air last week that his character will not be sleeping around with Beth. Today, Norman Reedus tweeted a collage-like picture from "The Walking Dead" season 4 second-half episodes scenes.

The first shot in the picture tweeted by Norman shows Daryl and Beth in the house. The next shot shows Beth hugging Daryl from behind. It was an emotional episode for both of them, perhaps more for Daryl as he opened up in front of Beth.
The last shot shows Beth looking at Daryl, and he seems to be crying.
In an interview with AccessHollywood.com, Norman explained the backward hug between Daryl and Beth in "The Walking Dead" season 4, episode 12, "Still."
"We worked that out. That originally was a face-to-face hug, and it was her going, 'Stop it! Stop it!' and hug me and crying, and 'Stop it, stop it,' and hugging me. ... I kind of came up with that backwards hug thing and dude, that director really pushed that to make that really awesome," said Norman to AccessHollywood.com.
"Daryl, feeling her hug him from behind was larger to me than a face-to-face hug. It was the support. Like she's standing him up, and it wasn't so much the visual of it that I was thinking about, it was more of, he's lost in this - him screaming and all of that stuff - it's coming from a place of fear. He's afraid and to watch a tough character be afraid and lash out like that and go full circle and end in tears, is such a heavy thing, but to have someone come up behind him and lean against him and hold him up, even symbolically is like, I was going off what that would feel like to Daryl more than the visual of it, and I just felt like if he could feel that behind him, it would be more of a moment."
It looks like Norman Reedus misses being with Beth. She was kidnapped by an unidentified person in "Alone." Now, Daryl Dixon is with a new group led by Joe.
Watch Daryl Dixon in action in "The Walking Dead" season, episode 15 on Sunday, March 23, 2014 on AMC at 9 p.m. ET.
