ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 2, EPISODE 7, Abra Cadaver

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

Heavy Petting

This leas to Liv asking if Major is really okay. They can’t have sex because of the Zombie Virus, but clearly they can do other things which are left to our own imaginations. This leads to Liv asking Major if he’s really okay with the limitations on their physical relationship as well as the fact that her personality changes a little with every meal.

Are We Going To Be Okay?

We then cut to a hotel and get introduced to our victim, Syd Wicked, who had been 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. Ravi feels like his new girlfriend is moving too fast while Major and Peyton are both a little freaked out by Liv being a Zombie still. For Peyton that makes sense, but 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, and his death isn’t apparently being mourned so much as celebrated.

Unfortunately for Ravi’s girl, she’s moving too fast for Ravi, and when he comes back to his house and finds the living room in full British get up and she is dressed as a sexy Bobby, he 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

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, but when they stake her out all they see is Clive coming over for a lovely evening. When they break in the next morning, they do find all the evidence that Agent Bozzio has, but it doesn’t really help them as she doesn’t have any information they don’t already know. They do however find a result coming from the FBI lab confirming the brains in Lieutenant Suzuki’s fridge were human – which forces Liv to falsify them to throw the FBI off the trail.

Peyton then ends up at Blaine’s to share that Mr. Boss visited her, and 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 she asks to watch a movie and she shoots him down when he goes in for a kiss.

Abra Cadaver ends with Major slipping out after finding Liv high on Syd’s death obsessed brains, not able to handle this bit of brains induced manis.

I’m giving Abra Cadaver an 85/100 as this was a great episode that is Worth Your Time. The twist was well done and the story was compelling.

ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 2, EPISODE 6, Max Wager

Max Wager opens with Major being in a very good mood. The reason why is explained a half second after he enters the kitchen, as Liv follows him, wearing just a long button down that barely covers her ass..ets.

Omelette You Finish

We then cut over to Detective Babineaux as he leaves court, his convict gloating in a plea deal that got him into a minimum security unit. The gloating doesn’t last long however, as someone shows up to take care of business.

Witness To A Witness Murder

Back in the lab, Ravi is questing Liv as they pick bullets out of the victim. He’s alarmed that if Major and Liv have sex, she might give him Zombism. Luckily for Liv, Ravi cares enough to make her promise not to do just assume condoms will protect Major until he does some tests.

With Clive wanting Liv’s “Psychic” help, she goes to town by making some victim clam treats.

Victim Clam Surprise

Out on the beat, Clive is chatting with his FBI girlfriend when Liv and Major walk up. Liv’s new brain has her betting on little things while Major learns why the FBI agent, Dale Bozzio, is there. The news doesn’t make him feel any better. Agent Bozzio is there to investigate the missing people. The very same missing people that Major abducted and murdered because they were on the Max Rager Zombie hit list.

While Blaine is getting his business taken over by his Zombie Dad, Liv is losing every bet she makes, which triggers a memory of the victim losing big bucks to his bookie, which brings the bookie into focus.

This leads Liv to Stacy Boss, who just happens to also be the target of Peyton’s investigation, which bring her face to face with her target, who just happens to be in her office, and willing to threaten her.

Back at the police station Clive, Liv and Agent Bozzio discover what the victim had hiding in his turtle tank. This leads Liv and Clive (eventually) back to the basketball star, who killed his friend for fear he’d leak their college cheating scam from years gone by.

While Liv and Major are getting hot and heavy, Ravi is discovering that the Zombie Virus passes through latex, making Liv and Major’s passionate plans potentially fatal. Ravi gets to the house just in time to ruin Liv’s plans.

Max Wager ends with Major taking care of Blaine’s problems by kidnapping Blaine’s Zombie Dad.

I’m going to give Max Wager a 75/100. It was a solid episode with some laughs and decent twists, making it Worth Your Time.

ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 2, EPISODE 5, Love & Basketball

Love & Backetball opens with Liv and Major making out. Major wants to do more, but Liv is scared that making out may turn him into a Zombie again – much less if they had gone further.

Make Out The Zombie

Major wakes up on the couch, still human, and even after he makes it clear to Liv that he wants more, she tells him they have to settle for being friends. She won’t risk him being a Zombie, and she won’t date him until there is a cure.

Our victim for this episode if Mike, a security guard who ends up getting shot after he turns off the cameras that might have recorded his murder. Once in the morgue, Liv makes a nice omelet out of the security guards brains, yum…

Brains Omelet

We then learn that zombies who aren’t fed deteriorate into something horrifying, and the researchers at Max Rager want a fresh sample of Zombie blood to figure out what is going on.

Mike was a basketball coach, and he clearly loved basketball, because Liv is not an expert on B-ball. We then find out that one of Mike’s kids father’s is abusive and violent. Clive, bless his heart, goes back later that night to make sure the abusive father knows he better not touch his kid again, and then beats his face down nicely.

Liv then plays coach match maker before dropping the bomb on Rita Du Clark that she was recently kissing major. This gives Rita the opportunity to stab Liv with a skewer and get that sample of Zombie blood she was looking for.

Rita is also pushing Major to continue to do his job but when he goes to meet his next target his doubts continue to grow when his business man target’s family, including his young son run to him for hugs.

With another body found, Clive and Liv are led to an expensive attorney’s office where they find the baseball bat he likely used to kill the 2nd victim, as well as blood on the blinds. Live and Clive have found their man.

Major then goes back to Max Rager and tells Rita that none of the people on her list are Zombies. She doesn’t believe him, but for the moment all she can is tell him the odds are low.

Major tells Rita they can’t continue to do whatever they were doing, and later in the evening tells Liv that he doesn’t care if she’s a Zombie, he wants to be with her.

Love & Backetball ends with Lieutenant Suzuki’s widow coming to Clive and bringing him a plastic container that has a chunk of blains in it. Why would his old boss have had brains in his beer fridge?

Love & Backetball scored an 81/100. It was fast paced and had lots of twists and turns and is Worth Your Time.

ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 2, EPISODE 3, Real Dead Housewife of Seattle

Real Dead Housewife of Seattle as the name implies, centers around a group of catty women in a “friend” group. As our victim is telling a friend on the phone how she told off another of their group, a man shows up at the door, offering a ten million dollar cash payment for their beautiful waterside home – which of course gets him in the door.

Our victim takes the realtor out to the deck only to get attacked. In the struggle they both go crashing through the glass guardrail to fall to their deaths. Well, she dies, but the realtor ends up in a coma in the hospital.

We then cut to the morgue, where Ravi is explaining the fall had a lot of energy because it exploded one of the woman’s breast implants.

Implans vs. Zombies

Clive has found the victims schedule on a printed stash of papers from the murderers pocket. He’s not a realtor, he’s a petty criminal, and with the woman’s schedule in his possession, Clive is convinced this is a murder for hire – and that puts the husband squarely in Clive’s scope as the most likely suspect.

For this meal, Liv makes some nice Tuna and Brain salad, delicious.

Tuna & Brains

We then cut over to Major getting squeezed. Almost literally. Vaughn Du Clark has sent his red headed assistant to remind Major they want results – and in this case results mean dead Zombies.

Red Headed Be-Otch

While Liv and Clive discover a link between the murdered woman and Vaughn Du Clark, Major has taken his next Zombie target, and gained a dog in the process.

The next day Live and Clive go to visit Vaughn Du Clark, and Liv gets a flash of Vaughn and her lunches brain having sex. Clearly they knew each other – biblically. Liv and Clive are leaving when two worlds come crashing together. Liv and Major came face to face at Vaughn Du Clark’s door.

Major Rajor

Clive and Liv aren’t being to discrete, and talk about Liv’s vision right there in Vaughn Du Clark’s office. They think they are alone, but the Red Headed assistant has heard every word.

When Clive and Liv get the chance to interview the victims husband, he doesn’t help his rankings on the suspect list at all. Liv asks him if he was aware that Vaughn Du Clark was banging his wife, and the husband punches his hand through a glass table top – so I’m guessing he didn’t?

We then get to see Vaughn Du Clark confronted about his indiscretions as well, by his Red Headed Assistant, and we also find out in the process that she’s his daughter, and the product of one of the previous indiscretions to boot.

For some reason, Red Headed Assistant decides to set her sights on Major, and proceeded to seduce him in the gym. The why isn’t clear. Is it to get even with Daddy? To piss Liv off? Is it just a ploy to get more information?

Liv then goes on a Birthday shopping spree, which lines up perfectly with Clive discovering that the very same personal shopper that Liv is hanging out with, is Clive’s new top suspect. When the suspect tries to run, Liv goes full Zombie, and smacks her around a bit.

Liv is having a sad birthday, at least until she discovers the cake in the fridge. Peyton dropped by while Liv was out, and the fact that Peyton still cares, makes Liv smile.

Real Dead Housewife of Seattle ends with Vaughn Du Clark facing off with the husband of the woman he was sleeping with – who also just happens to be on the board of Max Rager. Vaughn doesn’t react well when he’s told the board is about to vote him out, and he reacts by introducing his opponent to a Zombie.

Real Dead Housewife of Seattle scored an 85/100. There were a lot of great twists and turns, including Peyton coming back as the DA to go after the Utopium trade.

ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 2, EPISODE 2, Zombie Bro

Zombie Bro has Liv transitioning from a Grumpy Old Man brain to a murdered fraternity brother while Major struggles with the guilt of his new role as Zombie Assassin.

Do Zombie Assassins Have Guilt?

With a dead frat brother on the floor, Clive is keen on getting the case solved as fast as possible, and asks Liv to let him know the moment she gets a psychic tingle. What’s a Hot Zombie pretending to be a crime solving psychic to do but make some brain nachos, right.

Brain Nachos Anyone?

Our fallen frat brother was a real douche. Our first potential murderer is a fellow frat brother who’s life was destroyed by a streaking prank.

Poor Clive doesn’t know why Liv is so different from case to case, he just sees her behavior as strange quirks but he’s willing to put up with it because her “psychic” powers help him solve crimes.

Box Of Chocolates

Major still doesn’t want anything to do with Liv, and Liv is falling hard on the Frat Douche brains, going so far as to take her new spy roomie to a frat party/wake.

While Liv is playing frat party detective, Major and Ravi decide to experiment with Utopian, which leads to Liv being called to rescue them from the club after they got totally messed up on Utopium.

Back on the case Clive leads an innocent college girl on a voyage of pain and embarrassment as they investigate if she new she was the ugliest girl at the frat party. Twisted and sad and hit too close too home. I’m pretty sure I helped a girl win that award at a college party years ago.

Clive then finds the only costume rental that matches the murderer, but the two kids they bring in are sweet – even if they are into some kinky stuff.

Meanwhile Blaine decides he wants to get back into the Utopian drug trade, and picks a fight with the cities crime boss – who is literally named Mr. Boss.

Back on the case, Clive cracks this one with old fashioned detective work. The reason he couldn’t find any links between the murdered frat brother and the young man who rented the costume was because there wasn’t one. The connection was between the other kid with the frat brothers same name.

It was all a case of mistaken identity.

Zombie Bro ends with Major rejecting Liv’s request to see him before he takes a hit of Utopium.

I’m giving Zombie Bro an 80/100 as it had a great twist and loved getting to meet “Princess Sparkles”.

ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 2, EPISODE 1, GRUMPY OLD LIV

Grumpy Old Liv is the season premiere and jumps right back in where Season 1 left off. Liv’s mom is pissed that she refused to give blood when her brother life depended on it – but how do you explain to your family that you’re a Zombie who craves brains?

Grumpy Old Liv

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 and she’s not in a great mood, but all Clive is interested in is trying to understand 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, and I for won love it.

The witness gives them a bit of info, but things get more interesting when Liv realizes who the mortician about to clean her body is. Liv and Blaine have a heart to heart, and Blaine accuses Liv of liking the thrill of being a “crime solving zombie” before striking on the truth that Liv doesn’t have anymore of the cure that she used on Blaine. Liv begs Blaine for more of the tainted Utopium, but he doesn’t really care until she tells him that the cure may not be permanent, and she needs more Utopium to make more.

With few job options, Major is forced to act as a personal trainer. He doesn’t have any interest in chatting with Liv, but she does have him when she warns him that Clive is suspcious that Major had something to do with all the deaths at Meat Cute in Blaine’s 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.

Grumpy Old Liv scores an 80/100. It sets the stage for some exciting follow ups, and had some awesome double-entendres splashed about, making this episode Worth Your Time.

ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 1, EPISODE 13, Blaine’s World

Blaine’s World begins with Blaine and Julien in a panic, trying to find the brains that Major stole, and which Blaine has already sold for a lot of money.

Major Cold Spell

Julien has searched everywhere he can think of, but he can’t find the brains, and Major’s not in a talking mood. He knows if he tells them he gave them to Liv to test, he’s going to be putting her in danger. He’d rather freeze to death than put Liv at danger.

While Major is freezing, Liv, Clive, and Ravi are at the MEs office, and they’ve got Miss Giovanni on their table. Miss Giovanni didn’t survive the beat down. Liv does her thing, making a Giovanni sandwich.

As Liv is eating, Ravi has made more progress. Their second Zombie Rat has turned Normal Rat, but they only have one dose, and Ravi doesn’t have enough ingredients to make more. As Liv and Ravi are discussing the cure, Liv get’s a vision and a lot of puzzle pieces fall into place.

Assassin Zombie had saved the video proof of Zombie life, and when the kids hit him with their car, they took his wallet, and the memory card inside it. Now Max Rager Corp needs to cover their tracks, and it doesn’t matter how many people they kill, or die from the Zombie Virus.

We then cut to the CEO of Max Rager, Vaughn Du Clark, recruiting a new chief scientist after the last one got a little too close to an angry and hungry Zombie.

As Vaughn Du Clark is ending his interview, Liv and Clive shows up, which is perfect timing as Max Rager’s new chief scientist wants to see a Zombie in action, and they know Liv isn’t human.

Back in the freezer, Blaine promises Major that he’s going to keep him just cold enough to suffer, but not die. Blaine wants to know where his Astronaut Brains are, and he’s willing to torture Major to get the information.

Out in the wild, Max Rager’s team has bought the thumb drive, but the only surviving teen was smart enough to pay a hobo to watch his, car, which saves his life when he gets waved off a minute before his car goes boom!

Boom

The kids thinks he made it out with the bag of money but when he starts to paw through it, he finds that he’s not the only smart one. The Max Rager agents have put a tracker in the cash.

Cash Tracker

So if they were going to blow up the car with the money, why not just put some explosives in the bag too?

As the surviving kid tries to flee, he’s picked up by the police and ends up in the police interrogation room with Liv and Clive. The kid wants a deal, to be tried as a minor, but Clive has other ideas. The kid can cooperate or they will let him go so he can take his chances on the street, and the kid is smart enough to know he’s dead once he leaves the police station.

When Ravi gets home he calls Liv because Major hasn’t come home. Liv decides she has to lie to Major about the brains he gave her, and tells him they are Monkey Brains, but by texting Major she lets Blaine know exactly where his products are. Liv does the only thing she can, and agrees to exchange Major for the brains.

Liv, being the trusting soul that she is, hands over the brains before she confirms that they actually gave her Major. While Liv is being tricked, Major is setting a blaze in the freezer with the lighter he found on the dead kid, and affects an escape.

This gives him enough time to go back to his vehicle and get strapped, which includes a grenade. Major is in the mood to even a few scores.

Majorly Pissed Off

This leads to Major kicking some ass. Blaine has just lost four employees, and returns with Julien just as Major is completing his work on the first four. Julien ends up in the freezer with a grenade, but before Major can take care of Blaine, he gets a knife to get guts.

Blaine leaves Major to bleed out when Liv walks into the front of the Butcher Shop and puts a bullet in Blaine, thinking that Major is already dead. Blaine is rubbing his power into Liv’s nose when she stabs him with the dose of the cure she was going to give herself.

Human Again

Blaine flees, human again, while Liv looks at Major who is about to die, and does the only thing she can think of to save him, and scratches him.

Liv takes Major back to her apartment and tries to explain why she did what she did, but Major isn’t exactly happy that she turned him. Liv is hoping they can be together as they are both Zombies, but Major is hurt and angry. Liv has done nothing but lie to him, and even allowed let him admit himself to a Psyche ward rather than tell him the truth.

While Liv is getting her soul crushed, Suzuki has realized that without the butcher shop he doesn’t have a source of food, and blows himself, and the shop up just as Liv’s brother is arriving for his first day of work.

After the police show up Clive realizes that everything isn’t quite what it seems, and even though Suzuki set it up to look like he went down with a fight, Clive has some intuition that Major was involved.

Blaine’s World ends on a heartbreaking note. Liv’s brother is in surgery with multiple shrapnel wounds and lots of blood loss.

Brother Down

The doctors need blood, and Liv is a potential downer. The screen goes dark as Liv is telling her mother no, she can’t give her brother blood, but she also can’t tell them the real reason.

The Season 1 finale has some great action when Major goes on the attack and rapped up a lot of storylines in a very satisfactory manner. I’m going to give Blaine’s World an 80/100 making it Worth Your Time. If you have someone in your life who isn’t a zombie fan, but does like murder mystery shows, this is a must watch that you will both enjoy.

ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 1, EPISODE 12, Dead Rat, Live Rat, Brown Rat, White Rat

Dead Rat, Live Rat, Brown Rat, White Rat opens up with Liv’s would be assassin climbing out the water and stumbling up onto the road.

Why Did The Zombie Cross The Road

Confused from being turned, and wounded from the blades of the boat hitting him, the assassin stumbled onto the road and directly into the path of a group of young men and women who are driving a stolen car.

Zombie Road Kill – Kind Of

Things go about as you would expect. The kids can’t report the accident because their victim is dead, so they bury him in the woods. Of course our Assassin isn’t dead, he’s just stunned, and he wakes up just in time to snag the cheerleader, Kimber, before she can escape.

A few weeks later Liv and Ravi get pulled in when Rufus the pooch finds a body part in the woods.

Rufus Has His Foot In HIs Mouth

Back in the MEs office Liv gets a punch in the gut when Ravi finds his Zombie survivor rat “Hope” dead in her cage. The possible cure isn’t quite as close as they thought it was.

With Kimber’s cheerleader brains on board, Liv has turned into a teen. Clive has pulled in one of the victims friends, and Liv totally bonds with her, getting her to spill and play a voicemail Kimber left for her. This leads Clive and Liv to the three surviving youths who hit the Assassin Zombie. The kids are in a band, and rent out a storage space to jam.

Back at the station Clive has watched the security footage from the storage facility, and figured out that the kids could have been in the stolen car they see leaving, leading them back to the storage unit.

Unfortunately, someone else has already been there, and there is another body. At least we get to see what Pizza with Brains looks like.

Brains With Pizza or Pizza With Brains

Back at home, Ravi asks Major for some dating advice, which leads to one of the best exchanges of the episode. Major’s humor and attitude are awesome, and I just love the way he thinks.

When Major leaves Ravi, he goes out to buy weapons, and ends up buying a grenade as well. What could go wrong?

With two members of the foursome involved with the motor vehicle accident with the Assassin Zombie, Miss Giovanni, the dark haired goth girl comes to the station. She is convinced she’s going to be next. The story she tells seems unbelievable, at least to Clive. How could they bury someone and have that person climb out of a grave?

Before Clive and Liv can track down the Assassin Zombie, he tracks down Liv, pissed that he ate is grandmother, and he blames Liv for making him whatever he is. Peyton is knocked out cold on the floor, and Assassin Zombie wants revenge.

A short, brutal battle ensues, and Liv wins, but there is a cost. Peyton wakes up as Liv is in full Zombie mode.

Peyton Learns The Truth

Liv comes clean, telling Peyton the full truth and it doesn’t appear that Peyton is taking it well. When Liv goes to get medical supplies for Peyton, Peyton flees.

The episode ends with lots of bad things going on.

Ravi’s weekend with Peyton has been screwed over by Liv’s revalation.

Miss Giovanni has been beat to a pulp.

And worst of all, Major has been captured by Team Blaine, and Blaine has just hired Liv’s little brother.

Major Issues

Dead Rat, Live Rat, Brown Rat, White Rat was a fun episode that leaves us on a cliffhanger for the season finale. Dead Rat, Live Rat, Brown Rat, White Rat scored a 73/100, making it Worth Your Time.

ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 1, EPISODE 11, Astroburger

Astroburger kicks off with Major in the hospital, waiting for his buddy Scott to play chess. When Major goes to find him, he’s in his tub, his wrists cut, a suicide. Or at least that what it was meant to look like.

Game Over, Man

It only takes Ravi a single look at the tub to say its a suspicious death. If Scott E had been alive when he was put in the water, it would have been much darker than a light pink.

Pink Water

Liv takes the chance while she’s at the hospital to talk one on one with Major. Major tentatively tells Liv that Scott E told him there were Zombies at the boat party massacre where Liv and Scott E both were at. Liv doesn’t admit the truth, but she does feel like betrayed Major, or at least the reason she thought it was a safe to let Major commit himself.

That night Liv is there for Peyton’s first date with Ravi, and Major shows up because Ravi changed the locks. This leads to something like a double date as Major, Liv, Ravi, and Peyton end up eating Chinese food while looking for something to watch that won’t trigger Major. While everyone is worried about Major, Scott E’s brain is kicking in and Liv is having delusions.

Back at Blaine’s headquarters Suzuki is has come to pick up his brains, and shares that Liv and Lowell may have been working together, which doesn’t seem to shock Blaine at all.

The news leads Blaine to head to the MEs office under the pretense of following up on the cure Ravi is researching.

When Blaine leaves, Scott E’s friend, the local newsman shows up. Scott E was his pot dealer, and they were close. They would apparently watch cartoons and movies and get stoned. The room doesn’t look like it’s been tossed, but the newsman can tell someone has been there, which leads to him and Liv using the phone tracker app to see who took Scott E’s phone.

Find My Phone – A Killer App

The funny thing is that I’ve worked for two companies based on the west coast and have been to Seattle more times than I can count, and I knew exactly where this was. The app appears to show them somewhere near 1st and Lenora. I’ve actually stayed at the waterfront hotel by the harbor for a conference years ago.

First And Lenora Streets

Liv and the newsman stakeout Scott E’s phone location. They break into the apartment and find phones, and a ton of drugs. Liv calls Clive, but he can’t do anything because she broke the law to get the info. This leads Liv to set up a noise complaint call so the police can come investigate.

Back at Scott E’s apartment, it turns into a reunion with Major, Blaine, and Julian showing up to try and track down clues. This leads Major to decide that climbing in the trunk of Julian’s car is a great way to track down who he thinks is the Candy Man, which reveals to Major where Blaine’s home base at the meat shop is.

When Liv gets home Major is in her bed, but she doesn’t kick him out, which drives me nuts. Great job on not sending Major mixed signals girl.

With the police having a reason to investigate, Liv and Clive get on the path of one of the staff at the mental asylum, which leads them to a female doctor who was trying to get pregnant.

Back at home Liv rails against the doctor and her actions when Major grabs Liv and kisses her.

Stolen Kiss

Major begs Liv to tell him why she broke up with him. Did she cheat on him? Did he bore her? Liv breaks down and tells him that Zombies are real, and she broke up with him to protect him from what she’d become.

With the truth out in the open Liv and Blaine hug, Liv crying tears of relief and joy.

Back at Blaine’s headquarters someone has stolen all the brains from one of the trucks, which leads to Blaine stabbing his delivery driver in the neck as punishment.

Meanwhile Ravi is working on his Zombie cure, and he’s close. He’s been able to gradually make a rat’s vitals more normal.

The episode ends with Liv’s victims brain revealing to her that the newsman who’s been helping her the whole time was just another of Scott E’s delusions. But they were helpful, as it gives her the bit of data she needs to unlock her victims phone.

Liv thought the video would be useful, but it turns out one of the Zombies caught on the phone video is of her, which kind of puts a damper on how Liv can use the footage.

Liv Eating Brains Just After She Turned

The episode ends on a twist as Liv realizes that not everything she’s been experiencing has been real. Major shows up at her door with proof that zombies exist, he’s got all the brains stolen from Blaine’s delivery, and he vows to kill the Zombies. All of Them. Which makes me think the tearful reveal was just another delusion.

Astroburger scored a 72/100. It was a solid episode with a good twist. For me, I don’t like when delusions are used to make you believe one thing only to have it revealed later that it was only in someone’s head. It makes you question more than I want to when I’m trying to enjoy TV. What is a real memory? What is just a plot point I’m over analyzing? It annoys me when I’m just trying to enjoy an episode of a Zombie TV show. Still, Astroburger scored a 72/100, making it Worth Your Time.

ZOMBIE SERIES – IZOMBIE , SEASON 1, EPISODE 10, Mr. Berserk

Mr. Berserk takes up with Liv sitting in an interrogation room, the police wanting to know how she showed up at her boyfriends house just after he was killed. The cops like her for at at first, at least until Suzuki comes in and tells the detective to let Liv go, Lowell had gunshot residue on his hands, making the case a suicide.

Blood On Your Hands

As Liv is dealing with the loss of her just found love, Clive tells Ravi that he should go check on Major. Clive still thinks Major is having some form of psychotic break, but Ravi knows exactly what happened, even if he can’t admit it to anyone but Liv.

Liv, desperate to get the PTSD Sniper brains out of her system, jumps at the chance to eat the brains of the next body on the ME’s table, and it just happens to be the alcoholic reporter who was helping Major investigate the missing kids.

The next day Clive tracks down Julian, and Julian looks just fine. In fact Julian is doing so well he’s benching a few hundred pounds. Clive goes back to Major and does what he thinks is the right thing, and tells Major he needs to get psychiatric help.

Get Help

With Major believing that he’s losing his mind and is admitting himself into an inpatient psychiatric facility, Ravi confronts Liv. Major’s not crazy, and Ravi wants to tell him what’s really happening, but Liv just feels relief that if Major is in the hospital he’ll be safe, because how is he ever going to live with knowing that Zombies are real and what really happened to the missing kids?

The Candyman

While Major is struggling with reality, Liv, powered with the knowledge that her victims brains are showing her, tracks down the people in the story her victim was working on. This leads to a very twisted revelation from the debate team past that could just be the reason the report ended up in the ME’s office.

With alcoholic fueled brains onboard, Liv goes into a drinking frenzy, and when she gets flagged by the bartender, she calls the only person she trusts, Major, to come get her. This leads to a touching, but sad exchange between the two of them.

The next day Clive shows up at the ME’s office and shares that their prime suspect in the reporter murder has an alibi, but he did find some other things out. The tell tale mentions of the Max Rager drink have started to reveal a pattern. People who drink it are going Berserk.

Mr. Berserk

They now have a new suspect. If the reporter believed Max Rager was causing violent episodes, they’d have plenty of reasons to kill the reporter.

This leads Liv to go confront the Max Rager CEO, which doesn’t end well. They escort her out and when Liv gets back to the MEs office Clive is there, and he can smell the booze on her. Clive tells Liv she’s off the case. Between confronting the Max Rager CEO and being drunk, its time for Liv to take a break, and Ravi backs Clive up.

Liv finds another lead in her victims notes, and tracks down the Max Rager employee who had supplied the reporter with data. Unfortunately for Liv and the inside woman, Liv also lead the Max Rager fixer directly to them. The fixer thinks he’s killed them both, but not feeling a pulse on Liv doesn’t quite mean what he thinks it means.

Liv would have been dead, but her Zombie Rage kicked in just at the right moment and she was able to survive.

Liv Taking Care Of The Fixer

Back in the MEs office Liv finally signs off on destroying Lowell’s body, and admits to Ravi that his death was her fault. If she had just pulled the trigger, Lowell wouldn’t have had to try and step up, and would still be alive.

While Liv is dealing with the aftermath of her decisions Major is in the hospital, sharing his story in group. Only, one of the other members in group tells Major he knows exactly what’s going on, and gives Major confirmation that he’s experienced the exact same things, and he knows why.

Friggin Zombies

Mr. Berserk ends with the Fixer from the boat waking up on the beach. He’s cut up, and his eyes are bright red. That little bit of Liv’s blood he tasted when he thought he was the hunter and not the prey, just turned him into a Zombie.

Mr. Berserk scored a 77/100 and is Worth Your Time. The storyline keeps you wanting to know what’s going to happen next, and acting is just top notch.
