Grumpy Old Liv

Spoilers Below

Ravi and Liv then end up at a crime scene where an older gentleman has been crushed.

Crushed By His Car Crush

Our victim’s brains then get turned into meatballs, sharing its memories and attitude with Liv.

Brain Meatballs

While Liv struggles with her Zombiehood, Blaine is a human, working as a mortician.

When Clive comes to collect Liv her Grumpy Old Man brains are in control. She’s not in a great mood but Clive doesn’t care. He’s focused on what happened to Suzuki and how Major may or may not have been involved. Clive knows something isn’t right, he just doesn’t know what it is.

While questioning a tip line witness we get to see exactly who Liv’s Grumpy Old Man brains are impacting her. I for won love it!

Grow A Pair

The witness gives them a bit of info, which also leads to Liv having a vision. Afterwards, Liv and Blaine have a heart to heart. Blaine accuses Liv of liking the thrill of being a “crime solving zombie”. He then realizes that Liv doesn’t have anymore of the cure that she used on him. Liv begs Blaine for more of the tainted Utopium, but he doesn’t really care. At least not until she tells him that the cure may not be permanent. Liv needs more Utopium to make more.

Personal Trainer

With few job options, Major is forced to act as a personal trainer. He doesn’t have any interest in chatting with Liv. At least until she tells him that Clive is on his trail. Clive is suspicious that Major had something to do with all the deaths at Meat Cute in Blaine‚Äôs World.

Meanwhile, the source of the Zombie plague is still interested in their next energy drink, Super Max.

Major then has a Zombie moment when he goes to meet his next personal training client – who just happens to be a Zombie.

Clive and Liv then close out there case, figuring out who killed their old man, which turns out horribly sad. A local man killed the old man after he thought the old man had killed his dog. I have to say I totally get it. If you hurt my dogs or cats I’d worry about the consequences later as well.

Grumpy Old Liv ends with Major being pitched by Vaughn Du Clark, the CEO of Max Rager. They both know there are Zombies out there, and Major needs to do something about it.

Worst of all, Major also gets to hear Ravi on the phone, confirming that what Major is experiencing, is real.

This is all overlaid by Major in his new customers house, killing him.

We then get a bomb dropped on us as we realize that Liv’s new roommate is Vaughn Du Clark’s right hand.
