Blaine’s Booty Call

Out in the wide world Blaine’s booty call is hungry, and her delivery doesn’t quite show up fast enough. She tries to cover it up by telling Blaine her delivery never showed up. Blaine he doesn’t look like he believes her.

When we come back from the first break, we have a new body. A shut in is found rotten and swollen after his overflowing mail resulted in a police wellness check. Liv doesn’t want to eat the rotten brains, but as Ravi puts it, she “sucks it up” for the team. Her first vision of the deceased is of the man struggling to breath while trying to use an epi pen.

Later, at the station, Clive and Liv look through the victims mail. One of the birthday cards smells like peanuts.

Later that night Liv is about to go out on her date with her new Zombie love interest when her victim’s brains kick in. It’s hard to go outside with agoraphobia. On the plus side, Liv does have her victims muscle memory, which means she can sign into her victims laptop when Ravi brings it to her. Liv gets sucked into an online game but it seems like a false start when the online “killer” ends up on the far side of the country, and is just a tween.

After Liv’s night of crime fighting, her Zombie beau shows up, which leads to a failed lean in for a kiss before Liv get’s sucked back into her case.

While Liv is working on her love life Clive finds himself in Blaine’s shop, investigating the dead delivery boy from earlier in the episode. This leads Blaine back to Jacky’s for one final drilling.

One Last Drilling

As Blaine is taking care of business, Liv is breaking into a donut shop’s records so she can find the real killer.
