The latest episode of “The Walking Dead” was shocking. To help sort through all of the “emotion” of “The Grove,” Melissa McBride, who portrays Carol, appeared on “The Talking Dead.” During that episode, which aired on March 16, Melissa McBride appeared upset.

“The Grove” answered a lot of questions that had been haunting fans of “The Walking Dead.” It was revealed that it was Lizzie who had been feeding rats to the walkers at the prison. It revealed it was Lizzie that mutilated the rats. It also showed Carol admitting to killing Karen and Dave. It also revealed that Carol could do whatever it took to survive, including killing a child that had been left in her care.

Melissa McBride remained quite somber throughout the entire episode of “The Talking Dead.” She only smiled a few times and she rarely left. She talked about the episode, taking much of what happened during “The Grove” very personally. At times, McBride appeared to wipe tears from her eyes.

“It was dark,” Melissa McBride stated during “The Talking Dead.” The actress was referring to the episode, “The Grove.”

Even the other guests and host appeared much more melancholy than they normally would be. There was much less joking and laughing than in other episodes. Even the live studio audience were not in their normal high spirits.

The latest episode of “The Walking Dead” was dark. Many fans found it difficult to watch. The creator of “The Walking Dead” had billed “The Grove” as the one episode not to miss. He was certainly correct; it was not an episode to miss.
