Strap yourselves in and get ready! The Grove opens with a kid playing with a Zombie (has to be psycho Lizzie), she's running around as the Walker is trying to catch her. It's the preface of what's coming. Night watch, Lizzie and Carol talk, Carol talks about Sophia, which I believe is the first time she really had talked about her to others outside of the original group that knew Sophia.

What makes me really nervous is how often they leave psycho Lizzie in charge of Judith. Lizzie and Mika start to argue about Walkers; how Lizzie feels they are people and Mika knows that Walkers are dangerous. When a walker comes out of the house and charges the girls, Lizzie has Judith in her arms and is defenseless, Mika had to pull the trigger and take care of business.
|Carol has to make some tough decisions...|
Carol and Mika go hunting. On their walk Carol tries again to tell Mika that she needs to toughen up, that Lizzie might be bigger and in some ways stronger, that she's smarter and tells her that she'll have to watch out for her sister. They come upon a deer and Carol instruct Mika to shoot the deer but she can't. You can tell that Carol is disappointed in her, but in other ways understands. I think that Carol is trying to warn Mika, how Sophia was the same as Mika and she didn't make it.
|Mika's in trouble...|
At some point, Tyreese had injured his arm, Carol had the girls dig something like syrup from a tree and put it on his arm and wrapped it up. She said that it would help draw out the infection and heal. When they start talking about setting up house and staying at the house vs. going to Terminus, my first thought was that they're going to have to go because Tyreese is going to need medical treatment for his arm. While Carol and Tyreese go for a hunt, Tyreese is talking about Karen. Carol can't seem to bare it anymore and just when I thought she was going to tell Tyreese, she doesn't. Her crying leads Tyreese to tell her never to be ashamed of who she is and even gives her a caring hug.
Lizzie and Carol take a walk, to pick flowers for Mika, who Lizzie had killed
look at the flowers (Mika calmed Lizzie down by telling her to look at the flowers and count to three). Carol kept telling Lizzie to just look at the flowers, then shot her. Carol has been through so much, it was a tough choice.
