You know what always gets in the way of bashing someone in the head with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire? A man eating tiger.
I’m willing to chalk “the tiger save” up to a little creative license (both in the comic and in the season finale), but I’ve got to ask: Why did it take so long for that big cat to get down to business?
The second half of Season Seven was much like the first in terms of the slow pacing , but with much less violence and carnage. Although producers Gale Anne Herd and Scott Gimple and Greg Nicotero took different stances publicly about whether or not the violence from the first half of Season Seven would be toned down, it appears that Herd was being the most truthful, as there was markedly less violence and gore than the first eight episodes.
