Carol, Tyreese, Lizzie, Mika and baby Judith come across an abandoned house. They move in and Tyreese begins to think that perhaps they don't have to make their way to Terminus but can just settle there. Carol comes around to thinking the same. She's worried about Lizzie however who doesn't seem to realize that zombies aren't just a different kind of people nor how dangerous they are. Lizzie seems to come around after an attack by the walkers but events force Carol to take drastic action. Written by
Did You Know?
There is an incomplete puzzle on the dining room table during Carol's confession to Tyreese. According to the director, Michael E. Satrazemis
, when completed, the puzzle forms a photograph of Carol's long dead daughter Sophia who died years prior. See more
Throughout her time with Lizzie, Carol seems oblivious that she saw walkers able to think (like using a rock to break windows) and have mindfulness (like sitting patiently in church pews). In addition, the Greene family (which includes a veterinarian) and Michonne were keeping their own walker loved ones alive. It's as if Carol has forgotten that adults too have believed there is more left inside the walkers. Carol never asks Lizzie why she believed what she did, or if she had seen walkers do even more.
Tyreese can't grasp Lizzie's points either. Early on, Rick saw a little girl walker that noticed her lost stuffed animal, picked it up, and held on to it. He also saw another walker peer at a peephole and understand that turning a doorknob could open a door. Still another walker knew it was agile enough to climb a fence. It's as if Tyreese was never told by Rick and the others about such significant (and critical to be aware of) walker behavior/abilities. Much of what Lizzie was saying about them was accurate, yet she is treated as if she doesn't know what she is talking about. See more

You can sleep, Lizzie.
I'm okay. If there's trouble, I can take Judith. I can help.
You really think you can help me?
I know I can, Ma'am.
