iZombie , Season 2, Episode 7

Abra Cadaver opens with Major’s dog on the floor, listening as Liv and Major, well, kind of go at it.

Heavy Petting

This leads to Liv asking if Major is really okay. They can’t have sex because of the Zombie Virus. Clearly they can do other things. They don’t show it. So use your imagination. Whatever it was, it was vigorous. Whatever they did do, it doesn’t relieve Liv’s anxiety about their relationship. She asks Major if he’s really okay with the limitations on their physical relationship first. Secondly, she asks if the way she eats and changes with eat meal matters.

The Victim

We then cut to a hotel. We have a victim. Syd Wicked was murdered with a playing card. Prestofest is in town, meaning the hotel is full of magicians and entertainers.

Syd’s brains get turned into some type of bacon and brains treat.

Tasty Brains

Back at Ravi’s house he’s sharing his relationship woes with Peyton who isn’t that sympathetic. Everyone has their personal issues. Ravi feels like his new girlfriend is moving too fast. Major and Peyton are both a little freaked out by Liv being a Zombie still. For Peyton that makes sense. For Major, it seems like a reversal as him and Liv just had some bedtime talk about the very same.

Back on the investigation front, we find out that Syd was not a well liked magician. His fellow magicians hated that he would give up their secrets. His death isn’t being being mourned. It’s cause for celebration.

Unfortunately for Ravi’s girl, she’s moving too fast for Ravi. When he comes back the living room she’s in full British get up. Dressed as a sexy Bobby. Any other guy might be happy but Ravi doesn’t look so happy about it. Ravi does however sleep with her and wait until the morning to tell her they can’t see each other anymore. As she puts it, “real classy”.

Going Full English

The Hunt For The Hunter

While all this is going on, Liv is helping Blaine find whoever is killing the Zombies. They think Agent Bozzio might know something about it and stake her out. All they see is Clive coming over for a lovely evening though. The next morning they break itno Agent Bozzio’s house. Unfortunately for them, they don’t find any information they don’t already have. They do however find a result coming from the FBI lab. The brains in Lieutenant Suzuki’s fridge were human. This forces Liv to falsify them to throw the FBI off the trail.

Peyton ends up at Blaine’s to share that Mr. Boss visited her. They bond over how scary Mr. Boss is. Blaine gives Peyton his number, and she takes it, just in case she gets “scared” again.

Meanwhile Liv has solved the crime, which had a nice little twist. I won’t lay out out as I don’t want to spoil it.

Ravi then misunderstands Peyton when they decide to watch a movie. He thinks Peyton wants a kiss. Peyton shoots him down when he goes for it though.

Abra Cadaver ends with Major slipping out after finding Liv high on Syd’s death obsessed brains. It is too much for him. He’s not able to handle this bit of brains induced mania.
