izombie-brainless-in-seattle

iZombie‘s two-parter “Brainless in Seattle” gets Liv (Rose McIver) high on romcom brain as the search for the person who murdered a woman smuggled into the city becomes a larger look at the city’s isolation from the rest of the country and the underground business of smuggling items and people in and out of the city. Even the subplots delve into this theme as Blaine (David Anders) and Chase Graves (Jason Dohring) both search for one of these human smugglers (Dawnn Lewis) who is turning more people into zombies and disrupting a delicate status quo leading to a possible brain shortage in as soon a six months. Neither the video of a zombie attacking an unarmed teen nor the aggressive murdery cult of Angus McDonough (Robert Knepper) is likely to help keep the peace.

Murder on the golf course through the use of a makeshift golf-ball gun puts Liv (Rose McIver) on spoiled aristocrat brain which quickly rubs everyone, including Clive (Malcolm Goodwin), the wrong way. Discovering the motive for the crime and unmasking the killer leads to Liv and Ravi (Rahul Kohli) choosing to break the law to save a child’s life, but in doing so Liv strains her relationship with Major (Robert Buckley) past the breaking point. With both zombies now single, will we see new romantic possibilities for one or the other in the near future?

izombie-are-you-ready-for-some-zombies

It’s a brave new world for iZombie as the Fourth Season opens with Seattle cut off from the rest of the world over fear that the zombies may spread outside the walled-off city limits. Life is relatively normal for Liv (Rose McIver) who continues her role as assistant medical examiner helping Clive (Malcolm Goodwin). Things are a bit less normal for Ravi (Rahul Kohli) whose zombie vaccine is 90% effective except for his zombie-benders every few weeks. Major (Robert Buckley) is given a new role at Fillmore-Graves which allows him to put some old skills to use (although it takes him longer than expected to discover just why his boss wants him to help teen zombies on the streets). As for the city at large, some are taking the new status quo in stride while others have begun singling out zombies and forming gangs attacking the creatures who they believe have ruined their lives.

izombie-conspiracy-weary

Heading into the two-part season finale, “Conspiracy Weary” features Liv (Rose McIver), Blaine (David Anders), and Don E (Bryce Hodgson) all on Zombie Truther conspiracy brains. While the joke gets a bit stale by the end of the episode, the single scene of the three arguing and building conspiracies off each other’s wild theories is pretty damn entertaining (as is the visual of the unlikely threesome sharing a brain following the rescue of Don E). Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) attempting to wrangle the three to solve his homicide turns out to be about as helpful as it sounds. Love takes a double whammy in this episode as Major (Robert Buckley) discovers a disturbing truth about Shawna (Sarah Jurgens) and Ravi‘s (Rahul Kohli) decision to tell Rachel (Ella Cannon) more about zombies turns out to have unintended consequences for all involved. One thin is sure heading into the season’s finale two episodes, the truth about zombies isn’t going to stay hidden much longer.

izombie-return-of-the-dead-guy-pic1

With no murder to solve this week the characters of iZombie have to find other ways to pass the time. For Liv (Rose McIver) that means hallucinating her old boyfriend after munching down on the brains of killer for Peyton (Aly Michalka). This puts more than a little crimp in her new relationship with Justin (Tongayi Chirisa). Major (Robert Buckley) has no such problems as his days and nights are full of lust and debauchery with his new friend Shawna (Sarah Jurgens). Ravi‘s (Rahul Kohli) time with the zombie truthers is a little less sexy now that they’ve captured Don E (Bryce Hodgson) and plan to expose the truth about zombies on a livestream. Oh, and Blaine (David Anders) gets an unexpected visit from his old boss.

izombie-spanking-the-zombie

While Liv (Rose McIver) eating the brains of a dominatrix turns out to be not as wild a time as expected, “Spanking the Zombie” does provide some fun moments of Liv dominating those around her and allow for the return of a pair of a familiar faces in newsman Cliff McCormack (Daran Norris) and lawyer Brandt Stone (Ken Marino), both clients of the recently departed and suspects in her murder. The latest episode of iZobmie also hastens Major‘s (Robert Buckley) decline to the point where the group has no choice but to give him the cure which may save his life but will also take away his memories. Given the transformation of Blaine (David Anders) after his cure, just who will the new Major turn out to be?

izombie-zombie-knows-best

One of the goofier episodes for Liv (Rose McIver) and Major (Robert Buckley) turns out to be one of the most dramatic for Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin). Helping the detective with the double-murder, Liv and Major chow down on the brains of a father and his teenage daughter causing all kinds of bizarre behavior among the group. Buckley may have missed his calling, as he’s terrific as the self-absorbed teenage girl. The case eventually uncovers a seedy motive for the crime involving the girl’s best friend and her screwed-up home life.

izombie-heaven-just-got-a-little-bit-smoother

Picking up 2.8 minutes after the Second Season finale, the main focus of “Heaven Just Got a Little Bit Smoother” is to cover up what happened at Max Rager and have the characters deal with the new status quo of knowing there’s a new player in town in the private military company full of zombies. There’s no murder of the week to solve here, as the show deals with the fallout of last season and sets up major arcs for this year. For Ravi (Rahul Kohli) this means working on a new cure for the unintended side-effects of his old cure. For Blaine (David Anders) this means beginning to act a bit more like his old self, while still be not quite sure who that was. For Major (Robert Buckley), that means struggling to live in a world where everyone sees him as the Chaos Killer.
