The Exterminator opens with a kid exploring an old building, using his cell phone to record and light the way.
The kid finds what he thinks is a hobo in a well. Which leads to the kid posting a picture of what he thinks is a Zombie.
This triggers Ravi’s internet search bot, making him aware that someone thinks there is a Zombie in town. Liv isn’t quite as interested. She’s hungry, and the only thing she can think about is putting some brains in her belly.
When she gets home Peyton is celebrating a professional win. She’s about to prosecute a murder case and feels like she’s got a win. Unfortunately, Liv sees that the man Peyton is prosecuting, isn’t the guilty party.
Liv just ate the brains of a killer for hire, and the brains are affecting her. She’s spouting strange facts while emotionally flat.
Triggered by Ravi’s internet alerts, they head to the waterfront. Once there they find a hungry Zombie at the bottom of a well.
Not only have they found another Zombie, but Liv knows the girl. Marcy was a fellow medical resident, the one who invited Liv to boat party in the first place. Ravi decides that Marcy is a great opportunity to perform an experiment. He pours a cooler of brains into the hole so Marcy can have a snack. Ravi wants to see if the brains will turn Marcy into something more similar to what Liv is.
While Ravi is thinking about what will happen to Marcy, Liv is worried about Peyton’s Case. She knows the Seattle PD has the wrong man fingered for the murder. Liv convinces Clive to go talk to the dead man’s bookie. The bookie, Smitty, just happens to be a retired cop.
Smitty is not so happy about being questioned about a murder, and he knows Clive’s Lieutenant, Suzuki. As Clive and Liv are leaving the bar, they see a picture of their murderer on the trivia wall. Clive now believes that maybe Liv isn’t off the mark.
Liv and Clive end up at the murderers house, and not only does Liv have another vision, but Clive finds a Glock with a suppressor. The same kind of weapon that killed the victim.
Back at home Peyton is a little pissed. Her prime suspect is set free, and she’s blaming Liv.
In the midst of the murder investigation Major comes to Liv. One of the shelter kids he works with has disappeared. Major needs Liv’s help.
After Liv and Clive work on tracking down who killed the killer, Ravi and Liv end up back at the pit. Marcy hasn’t improved. Liv, being controlled by her killer for hire brains onboard, wants to take care of Marcy. Ravi wants to get a biopsy, which leads to him falling in the pit and nearly getting turned, or killed by Zombie Marcy.
The Exterminator ends with Clive, Liv, and Peyton bluffing to get their murderer to take a plea deal.
Sadly, Liv is enjoying having a killer for hire controlling her emotions. Not because she likes the memories, but because the killer has no feelings. Liv doesn’t want to feel. Doesn’t want to be in pain.
The Exterminator ends with Major’s halfway house kid showing pictures of his missing friend, trying to find anyone who’s seen him.
Unfortunately for the kid, he runs into Blaine. Blaine tells him he knows where his friend is. They wander off into the dark as the credits roll.
