IMDb Description: Liv gains insight after eating the brains of a talk show host who specialized in relationships.
I had taken an even longer break from iZombie than from Crazy Ex Girlfriend; and I was slightly lost coming back in. But what an episode this was in terms of plot! So much happens with the story arc over and above the victim-of-the-week; though almost all of these are cliffhangers rather than resolutions.
- Ravi crushing on Liv’s roommate; and actually asking her out at the end of the episode
- Finding out that the zombie police captain is being blackmailed by Blaine to cover up Blaine’s murder of homeless kids
- Major telling Liv about the coverup
- Two end-of-episode cliffhangers! Liv spotting Blaine coming up to deliver brains to her new boyfriend; and Ravi being bitten by a zombie rat! What now, what now!
There was nothing very special about the murder-of-the-week; except the late-in-episode sting of Ravi telling Liv that the victim had probably never had a healthy relationship in her life; and the perspective that had been maintained throughout the episode suddenly turning around.
