Fans of The Walking Dead Season 11 episode 7 scene thought they were going too far
As Daryl and Leah walked through the woods, nothing seemed too unusual in the context of the zombie apocalypse. That all changed when the duo spotted a man on their own, who frantically explained that his wife was fatally injured, so it was his job to find food and supplies. As Daryl held him at gunpoint, Leah contacted Pope (Ritchie Coster) and asked what they had to do with the man and his family, prompting the leader of the Reapers to coldly call for their execution. .
Instead, Leah and Daryl choose to follow the man into his family, finding that his wife was in terrible shape and probably didn’t have much more time among the living. They demanded that the man and his son leave and never come back, and the woman demanded that they kill her before she could transform into a walker – as is the tradition of “The Walking Dead”. ” at this stage. Leah got ready to fire (although she didn’t) with her double barreled shotgun, drawing the wrath of the “TWD” Reddit community for the seemingly exaggerated decision.
“You were really going to use an entire shotgun shell on it? Damn, this is extreme,” wrote user Racing2F, pointing out how unnecessary the use of such a weapon is in this scenario. Although, The_Names_Lenny speculates that “Maybe it was to make sure a Grim Reaper kills her in case one of them stops in the area again to confirm the kill.” Redditor alexkiltro called the method “messy but safe,” adding that “people can sometimes disturbingly survive being shot in the head, but have their heads wiped out of existence? Yeah, it will. “
Daryl was ultimately the one to land the killing blow with the help of his trusty crossbow. It’s far from an ideal route and it would be a horrible sight to watch, but as the “Walking Dead” fandom pointed out, Leah’s shotgun would have made the scene a lot harder to digest.
