"The woman. The myth. The legend. Melissa stole everything but the lights this episode. Everyone was great in “The Grove” — especially Brighton Sharbino in such a complex role — but Melissa dominated the most powerful episode of the season. Carol had such a huge transition this season, and some of the things Melissa was asked to do as an actress boggle the mind. How do you shoot a little girl and get the audience to sympathize with you? How do you confess that you killed your friend’s loved one and leave people sighing with relief that you were forgiven? Melissa had us feeling a dozen different emotions about Carol from one moment to the next, and she left us anxious for more. She gets the gold star."
