Virtual Reality Bites starts with a scare. After seeing Major get the snot beat out of him the episode starts with him lying on the ME’s table. Thankfully, he’s alive, he’s just having Ravi start some stitches, which Live then takes over. As Live is working on him, Major tells her that he found the “Candy Man”. Major is sure that the shoes he saw on his assailant belonged to one of his kids.
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, but he doesn’t look like he believed her.
When we come back from the first break, we have a new body, a shut in found rotten and swollen after his overflowing mail resulted in a police wellness check. Liv doesn’t want 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 are reviewing the victims mail when they realize 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 agoraphobia kicks in and she’s not able to get through the door. 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.
As Blaine is taking care of business, Liv is breaking into a donut shop’s records so she can find the real killer.
Virtual Reality Bites scored a 76/100, making it Worth Your Time. It’s a fun, interesting episode that has a bit of a sad ending.
