iZombie , Season 2, Episode 4

Even Cowgirls Get the Black and Blues opens with a bunch of underage kids drinking. They are enjoying what appears to be beer while bragging about their exploits with girls. At least until a car pulls up and throws a gun out the window. Boys being boys, what are they to do but play with a very dangerous weapon? They throw a bottle in the air and try to shoot it.

Weapon Of Glass Destruction

We then get to see Peyton at Dance Class with Liv. The two of them make up, trying to put the past behind them. We then jump over to Major’s hotel room where he and the Red Headed Assistant are in bed together.

Clive and Team then catch a body. A woman has been found in a bungalow. Liv decides that Brain Fritters are the perfect way to eat her lunch.

Brain Fritters

As soon as Liv eats the brains, the deceased starts to take effect. The victim was very into country.

Clive and Liv focus on the dead woman’s ex boyfriend who just got out of jail. He tells the detectives that they should may visit his ex best friend who was also banging the deceased.

Liv’s first vision comes shortly after. She sees the bar manager, trying to get her to exchange sex for an advance on her paycheck. Clive now has a new top suspect.

Meanwhile on the Blaine front, he’s tracked down the dealer who cut the original Utopium that created Zombies – because Blaine wants to make more.

The bar manager has decided to spin his own tail, but Liv knows details that no one should. This leads the bar owner’s pregnant fiancĂ© to take back her alibi claim. She was lying to protect the man she thought was being faithful to her.

Cheaters Always Get Caught

Clive thinks he might have his killer, but the pregnant fiancé is just out for revenge.

While Clive is refocusing on the original ex boyfriend Liv is letting her meal take her onto stage at the country music bar. With country music singer/waitress flowing through her, Liv decides she needs to go talk to Major and tell him that while she knows it can never be, she will always love him. Major basically shuts the door in her face, which should let her know that he agrees. Instead she crashes through the door and Major tells her again that he just wants space, for like the 100th time.

Back in Blaine’s basement he still can’t get the Zombie Utopium recipe from the dealer, and falls back on making him into a Zombie in the hopes that being a Zombie will make him talk.

We then switch over to Peyton, who has been striking out on her search to go after the Utopium dealer Mr. Boss. At least until Blaine comes in and gives her the breakdown of how Mr. Boss moves the drugs. Of course Blaine turns on all his charm, and Peyton is smitten.

Sadly, Major is struggling with his reality, using Utopium to suppress the guilt of being Vaughn Du Clark’s Zombie hitman.

The episode’s conclusion comes down to bad luck. Our victim was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Even Cowgirls Get the Black and Blues ends with Major showing up at Liv’s door, asking for help. When in need, we always go back to the people who truly love us.

Even Cowgirls Get the Black and Blues Scoring

Even Cowgirls Get the Black and Blues scored a 70/100. This might have had an emotionally satisfying ending, but there wasn’t a lot of action or a huge twist on who did the killing, costing it some points.
