Played by Kelli McCarty
Character traits: Obsessive, liar, and schemer.
Marital Status: Single but engaged to Luis.
Relatives: Edna Wallace (mother).
Profession: Runs the Book Café.
Friends: Luis, Antonio, and Hank.
Hates: Sheridan and Edna.
Past relationship: Beth used to date Luis in high school. He broke up
with her because he had to take care of his family.
The old Beth: When Beth was introduced, she was a nice girl. It wasn’t
obvious that she didn't get along with her mother and no-one knew how she
really felt about her. She also didn't show any sign of being interested in
Luis. It's amazing how things changed.
Problems with her mother: Beth’s mother is always putting her down. She
has never told Beth who her father is. It's been hinted that one of Edna's
dates may have molested Beth. It's also been suggested that Beth may be the
cause of Edna’s use of a walker.
Reuniting with Luis: When Sheridan was presumed dead, she thought that
she could get Luis back. She was supportive of Luis when he was grieving for
Sheridan, and when he was ready to move on, he decided to move on with
her. They eventually got engaged, so she thought that she had Luis back.
Losing Luis again: When Sheridan came back from the dead, Luis wanted to
get back together with her and broke up with Beth. She let him think that
she was okay but, really, she was devastated. However, she was convinced
that she would get Luis back again.
Sheridan had been putting off telling Antonio the truth. When Luis had
finally had enough of this, Beth got her wish. She asked him to marry her
and he agreed. They decided to join Sheridan and Antonio in a double
wedding, but Luis dumped her again on the day of their wedding.
Plots to keep Luis and Sheridan apart (all): Beth called Luis over to fix
her sink. She drugged Luis' beer so she could make love to him, and luck
proved to be on her side when Sheridan came to her house and saw them
together. (It's not clear whether she slept with Luis or not). This kept
Sheridan from telling Antonio the truth.
On the night before the double wedding, Beth overheard Luis and Sheridan
planning to elope. Beth drugged Luis again to prevent this from
happening. The plan was successful because Luis and Sheridan missed meeting
each other and the elopement didn’t take place. On the day of their double
wedding, Beth lied to Luis and Sheridan about what happened the night
before. She told Sheridan that she spent the night with Luis, and she told
Luis that Sheridan spent the night with Antonio. This also worked and the
double wedding went ahead, but there was a problem: when Beth was about to
marry Luis, her mother had a heart attack.
Beth tried once again to keep Sheridan and Luis apart. Luis took Beth to
the place they were going for their honeymoon. This is when he dumped
her. By now she was determined to make sure that Sheridan didn't get Luis.
When Antonio fell into a coma during Sheridan and Antonio's honeymoon, Beth
blamed Sheridan for what happened. She told her that the Lopez-Fitzgeralds
would blame her if Antonio died, and she talked Sheridan into breaking up
with Luis. She thought that this plan would keep Sheridan and Luis apart
forever because Sheridan would feel guilty if Antonio died. It appeared to
work at first but Luis didn't give up on Sheridan. He still wanted to tell
Antonio the truth. Beth's only hope was Antonio dying but he recovered. When
she couldn't have Luis, she didn't want anyone to have him.
Attempted murders: Beth came up with a plan to kill Sheridan. She decided
to inject her using her mother's needle, and she was going to do it in the
house, so when Sheridan came over, it was made easier. Her plan was ruined
when Mrs. Wallace warned Sheridan that Beth was trying to kill her and steal
Luis. Sheridan believed it at first and she slapped Beth. Beth managed to
lie her way out of it by blaming Mrs. Wallace's illness for why she was
saying such things. Mrs. Wallace was on medication after suffering two heart
attacks and a stroke. Beth imagined what it would have been like to kill
When Antonio came out of his coma, Luis and Sheridan were celebrating at
her cottage. Beth saw them together and set the cottage on fire. They almost
died but both were rescued in time. Since she was on the Crane estate, she
was almost caught when Theresa and Gwen questioned her about why she was
there and why she smelled of gasoline. She panicked but was able to lie her
way out of it. Sheridan had to go to the hospital because of smoke
inhalation, and Luis asked Beth to go with them.
Beth wanted to continue with her plan to kill Sheridan, and she dressed
up as a nurse so she could kill her without being recognized. She had a
white nurses' uniform and a wig from a high school play she had been
in. When she went back to the hospital to kill Sheridan, she kept missing
her. Beth came close to killing her in the hospital chapel but a couple came
in and interrupted her. She was almost caught when Sheridan recognized the
sound of Beth's shoes: every time Beth chased Sheridan, her shoes
squeaked. When Sheridan told Luis and Antonio about the nurse that was
chasing her, she mentioned the shoes. Beth had to get the shoes off and was
almost caught by a nurse when she was running away from Luis and Antonio, so
she put the shoes on again and continued to run away. When Sheridan
recognized her, Luis went after her but, luckily for Beth, he approached the
wrong nurse. While they were looking for her, she hid in a patient's room.
She was almost caught when Luis decided to search the rooms, but she managed
to leave the room wearing the patient's clothes. When everyone saw her, she
said that she was picking up her mother's prescription.
Threatening Mrs. Wallace: Beth's mother kept telling Luis and Sheridan
that Beth was not who she seemed. Beth needed to find a way to keep her
quiet and threatened several times to kill her. She has also threatened to
send her to a nursing home.
Hiring Precious: When Mrs. Wallace had a heart attack and a stroke, Beth
had to hire a home nurse. Mrs. Wallace kept telling the nurse what Beth was
doing so Beth had to get rid of her. Beth had to hire a new nurse who
wouldn't repeat what Mrs. Wallace was saying and so she hired an orangutan
named Precious. The orangutan certainly would not be able to repeat
anything that Mrs. Wallace said about her.
Meeting Charlie: When Beth found out that Sheridan was pregnant and that
the baby could be Luis', she knew she had to get rid of her once and for
all. She went to the hospital to get some drugs, but she needed to know
which drugs to get. She managed to get hold of a pharmacopoeia without being
noticed and went to the chapel to read the book but was attacked by an angel
statue. When she went to the medical supply room, she didn't know that she
was being watched by Charlie who then followed her home. Charlie barged into
the house and threatened to expose Beth. Beth tried to stop Charlie from
calling the police, but when Charlie got through to them, Beth knew her
plans were over. When Mrs. Wallace thought that Beth was done for, she kept
insulting Beth. Charlie had had enough and decided to help Beth kill
Fake pregnancy: Beth decided not to kill Sheridan when Mrs. Wallace told
her that Luis would make sure that she was arrested, so she decided to
pretend she was pregnant. She thought that if Luis believed she was
pregnant, he would marry her. When she told him, she lied and said that she
was going to get an abortion because she couldn't afford to have the baby.
When Luis objected to her having an abortion, she suggested that they get
married. He didn't want to marry her because he loved Sheridan.
Beth used sugar to make herself look pregnant. Her mother told her that
she didn't look pregnant and Luis would want to know why she wasn't
showing. Her new plan was to put sugar in a pouch until her due date. She
also planned on kidnapping Sheridan and passing off Sheridan’s baby as her
Beth has been talking about her plan too much. Charlie has overheard her
twice. She was ready to call the police because she realized that Beth was
only using her to get what she wanted, but Beth has convinced her that she
wasn't using her and that they were going to go through with the plan.
Gwen's suspicions: Gwen is suspicious about Beth's pregnancy and has
questioned her about it. Beth didn't answer the way she should have. When
Gwen asked her about her doctor appointments, she lied and said she couldn't
afford to go to the doctor. When Gwen suggested that she may not be pregnant
after all, she had to think of something quick. She told Luis and Gwen that
she would make a doctor's appointment. Luis offered to go with her and
though she didn't want him to go, he insisted. She called Charlie ahead of
time so she could pretend to be the doctor. She had Charlie tell Luis that
she was pregnant.
Beth's mission: Beth thinks that her plan to take Sheridan's baby will
work. She will get Luis back for good and will get rid of Sheridan and
Charlie at the same time.
Kidnapper: Beth and Charlie kidnapped Sheridan. Since Sheridan was
having nightmares about clowns, this made it very easy for them to disguise
themselves as clowns so she wouldn't recognize them. Beth had Charlie build
a pit in her basement and that's where Sheridan was to stay for "weeks".
While Sheridan was in the pit, Beth was almost busted, several times. Of
course, she has managed to escape being caught. After Sheridan gave birth,
Beth wanted her dead so she could pass off the baby as hers. Beth and
Charlie took Sheridan to the docks and threw her in the water. Having got
rid of Sheridan, she wanted to kill Charlie, but her plan backfired when
Luis saved her. This is when she found out that Charlie was really Alistair.
She made a deal with him so he could help her get Luis.
Martin: She has taken Martin for herself, though it hasn't been easy to
keep Sheridan's baby. He was sick a few times and needed Sheridan's milk to
keep him alive. She thought that her goose was cooked when Sheridan had to
feed him but she has convinced everyone that he is hers.
Attempted murder: She has tried to kill Gwen a couple of times because
she was on to her again. First she tried to run Gwen over with a stolen car
but it didn't work, then she set up a shelf in the Crane’s garage so that
paint cans would fall on her head. That didn't work either and Gwen survived
New ally: In addition to Alistair, Antonio is also Beth's partner in
crime. She has persuaded him to keep fighting for Sheridan, despite
Sheridan’s love for Luis. Of course, Antonio doesn't know that Beth only
helped him because she wants Luis for herself.
