      I pulled the wooden beam off of Benryn and then told him to follow me (outside). He follows me out the door to the next hallway and then won't move any further. There is a clear path to the next room and door the stairs and out the front door with little to no chance of him getting burned. Very little fire this way and yet he will not follow me out no matter what I do. I think it's bugged.

        You are here probably because you are stuck with him saying; "Please it cant be true"
        To sort the problem, just go near Miri's corpse, right click on it and throw it where Benryn can see it.
        (You need adequate strength to do so, Lae'zel's 17 str will do the trick, Shadowheart's 14 str wasn't enough)

        - You can cast "Speak of the Dead" on Miri beforehand (if you don't have the spell there should be an amulet you find before that casts it), to learn about the dowry, which can be found on the Barn behind the inn inside some hay (needs Perception check)

          If you don't have speak with dead, you can callously throw her body out of the building so that Benryn can see it. I laughed, not going to lie.
