While fans are hopeful for Beth’s return, the actress has given mixed signals regarding the future. In an interview with Esquire, Reilly opened up about Beth’s “end game.” The actress stated: 

“As an actor, especially one that’s been put through hell and back with a character like Beth, I was like, ‘What’s the end game?’ And there’s a big cliffhanger obviously at the end of season three. Obviously I can’t tell you whether or not Beth makes it another day, to see if she finds that peace that you talk about. But it’s an interesting question with any character. Is happiness something that is an ultimate end goal?”
