One of many huge repeated refrains all through season 10 has been the Whisperer mantra, the spooky factor they hiss at one another as they put together for battle. Alpha used the mantra as a solution to bond the Whisperers collectively, as a solution to prepare them to be the drones she wanted to hold out her needs.
“We stroll in darkness, we’re free. We bathe in blood, we’re free. We love nothing, we’re free. We worry nothing, we’re free. We’d like no phrases, we’re free. We embrace all demise, we’re free. That is the tip of the world. Now’s the tip of the world. We’re the tip of the world.”
However this degree of devotion solely actually works when there’s somebody succesful main the pack. Because the Whisperers and their walker horde chase after the Speaking Heads wagon in the season 10 finale, Beta’s lack of imaginative and prescient catches up with him. One after the other, the Whisperers guiding the horde die, screaming and crying out within the darkness. When Beta sees Lydia, he strikes to assault her, falling into Negan’s lure. Blinded by hatred, Beta goes after Negan, bolstered by the fearlessness given to him by Alpha’s mantra. Daryl, bathed in walker blood as a way to mix into the horde, comes out of nowhere and plunges his knives deep into Beta’s eye sockets, blinding him. Beta roars in ache, needing no phrases to speak his rage and agony.
The walkers, drawn to Beta by the scent of recent blood, do what they do greatest: they mindlessly feast on the Whisperer’s flesh. The walkers encompass Beta, besides this time they aren’t on his facet. However, for Beta, that’s okay. Beta, true to Alpha’s phrases, embraces all demise, and as such, whilst walkers tear at his flesh and claw at his face, he has one thing that Negan, Daryl, and the remainder of them don’t: true freedom. In everlasting darkness, lined in blood, with out love or worry or phrases, his demise coming nearer with each heartbeat, Beta resides the Whisperer mantra like nobody else might.
As Beta is being devoured, Negan is shocked to be taught the true id of the monstrous villain. Earlier this season, it was revealed that Beta was once a famous country singer often called Half Moon.
