When Andrea arrives at the prison Beth is seen along with the others running out to protect the prison then Beth is not present until near the end of the episode when Andrea leaves the group, as she is taking care of Judith or possibly keeping watch. However, while Beth is running with Patricia, a walker manages to grab the older woman.
She welcomes the newly arrived groups of elders and children from Woodbury into the prison. She lets Rick kiss Judith on the forehead and then walks away. .
