Just a few days before Season 4, Episode 14 of The Walking Dead aired, comic book writer and show executive producer Robert Kirkman said that it was a “big one” that viewers will definitely remember. Seeing as how Lizzie (Brighton Sharbino) stabbed Mika Samuels (Kyla Kenedy), only to get shot by Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) herself in “The Grove’s” final minutes, we certainly understand Robert’s accurate tease.
在《行尸走肉》第四季14集开播前几天，该剧执行制片人Robert Kirkman说这一集将会是让所有观众记忆深刻的一集。果然这一集开播后，观众们眼睁睁看着Lizzie捅死了Mika Samuels，而Carol Peletier不得不杀了Lizzie，这一幕让我们终于明白制片人为什么会这样说了。
But was all of the buzz in advance of the March 16 ep enough to entice people to tune in? Apparently, it was! According to Zap2It, the Episode 14 garnered an impressive 12.9 million total viewers, a slight rise from last week’s episode, “Alone”. “The Grove” also had about 8.1 million viewers in the all-important 18-49 demo, earning a very respectable 6.4 rating in said demo — up from the 6.3 rating that “Alone” posted just last week.
If you ask us, it seems like the upcoming Season 4 finale in two weeks (premiering on March 30) could possibly score a record-breaking amount of viewers. It’s clear TWD is on a ratings roll!
