"The Grove" starts slow but finishes strong, concluding with one of the most affecting moments in The Walking Dead's twisted history.
So, that was a tough one.
This episode was McBride's coup de grace.
There's really no two ways about it, this was one of the sickest episodes of The Walking Dead in its entire run.
It's with the gruesome, tragic demise of the Samuels sisters that the series receives a jolt, reminding the audience just how torrid and brutal the world of The Walking Dead is. Because, you know, flesh-eating corpses wasn't enough.
The horrifying portrait of life for these characters that "The Grove" paints... seems to suggest something that The Walking Dead nor its characters have really dealt with to this point: that survival may just not be worth the pain of living.
It makes for a laughably bad episode - easily the worst of the season, a disappointing step back after a strong star to the post-prison world.
If we have any ... wait for it ... hope at all for the future of the show, it's that they're going to put most of the crap of the past behind them and MOVE THE F ON, which is all we've ever really asked for.
The mournful brutality of it all strikes a truly resonant tone, the likes of which we've not felt in some time.
Truly it's going to take a while and several viewings to process the devastating and horrifying events of Season 4, episode 14 "The Grove."
Certainly, The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 14 was a divisive hour (and one that seemed to drag on), but it was the final moments that people will be talking about.
This week's Walking Dead took the post-prison group I least cared about and gave them the most surprisingly intense and emotional story of the bunch.
This one slowly worked itself up into something great and horrible. Definitely the highlight of this stretch of episodes so far.
