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 garykmcd

I Am Speechless!
3 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is the fourteenth episode of the fourth season of the Walking Dead. The episode starts off slow, but boy does it ever finish off with a bang. The ending, controversial in some eyes, was almost too much for me to grasp. This is one of the most dramatic episodes of the series and a turning point for Carol, who had to make some moral decisions in this episode.

In this episode, "The Grove," Carol, Tyreese, Lizzy, and her sister stop at a house along the railroad towards Terminus. There the sanity of Lizzy is questioned as she believes the walkers are her friends. But after a walker attack on the house, some drastic events are now about to unfold.

Overall, this is an excellent episode, even if some people view the ending as uncomfortable. Nonetheless, it is a very grim episode touching upon themes of doing the right thing. This is Carol's episode and I wonder how her character is going to change from here on out. I rate this episode 10/10.
