Fans of The Walking Dead are quick to notice little things like continuity errors and poor CGI, but they've outdone themselves during the latest episode of the AMC drama series. After an eventful hour of television, some viewers took to social media to mourn the loss of Shiva, King Ezekiel's beloved pet tiger, while others were busy pointing out some more dodgy CGI. However, that's not all that grabbed the internet's attention during the latest installment of the post-apocalyptic series.
During the latest episode of #TheWalkingDead, fans were quick to notice that one scene in particular was pretty similar to a scene from the seventh season of #GameOfThrones. Did you catch it yourself? We didn't at first, but the more we think about it, the more obvious it becomes. Let's take a look.
Note: Spoilers for Game Of Thrones Season 7 and The Walking Dead Season 8 follow.
Shiva Died In A Similar Way To 'Game Of Thrones' Character Viserion
As we already mentioned, the latest episode of The Walking Dead saw the demise of Shiva, the wonderful CGI tiger. As Carol and Jerry struggled to carry Ezekiel through a swamp filled with walkers, it looked like the three characters were about to meet their maker. That is, until Shiva showed up and saved the day, terrorizing the swamp walkers which allowed our three heroes time to escape. Unfortunately the friendly tiger was killed by the walkers.
In comparison, during one particular episode of the seventh season of Game Of Thrones, Jon Snow and his men found themselves trapped by a large group of White Walkers. When it looked like all hope was lost, Daenerys and her three dragons (Drogon, Viserion and Rhaegal) all arrived to save the day, annihilating a large portion of the wights. Unfortunately, the villainous Night King put an end to Viserion, killing the winged beast with a spike.
The Internet Couldn't Handle Losing The Two CGI Animals In One year
Given that Shiva and Viserion were beloved by The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones' respective viewers, you can imagine how upset some people were to witness the death of both of these beloved creatures. As Sunday's episode of #TWD aired, we couldn't help but think of Viserion's death on #GoT and, considering it's only been a few months since we lost one of our special dragons, losing Shiva was just too much for some people to handle. Check out some of the tweets below:
Despite a pretty decent episode of The Walking Dead this week, it appears that people aren't too happy about Shiva's death, especially because they've only just accepted that Viserion has become a wight dragon over on Game of Thrones. It seems that fans just cannot condone all of this CGI animal killing. Despite our sadness, it's important to remember that Shiva went out a hero and, much like Viserion, her memory will live on in our hearts forever.
The Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC.
