I just wanted to see more of the citizens POV with dealing with such a traumatic event. It would have really intensified Bruce's race to recovery to get back to Gotham had we seen more brutality and despair; like when Bane had the special ops hung from the bridge. That was extremely unsettling. I love that scene.
