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 – Z NATION, SEASON 2, EPISODE 10, We Were Nowhere Near the Grand Canyon

We Were Nowhere Near the Grand Canyon finds the team cruising along the highway in Nevada when Citizen Z makes contact.

Citizen Z: “Well people. If we weren’t already in an apocalypse, this would be a damn obvious sign. What do you call something worse than an apocalypse? Because this is it. Whatever it is. Swarm. Horde. Zunami. There is no end in sight.”

Zunami

Unfortunately for Team Murphy, their RV breaks down, leaving them searching for help or a replacement. Doc and 10K end up being taken captive by Native Americans while Murphy, Warren, and Vasquez end up at a Native American casino.

While the team works through their issues with Native American hosts, trying to get them to believe a massive horde is coming, Citizen Z is dealing with one of the remaining fast zombies at Camp Northern Light. This leads to what for me was clearly the Best Zombie Kill of the episode.

After asking Warren for help to use a rocket, Citizen Z makes an epic kill with an anti tank weapon. And yes, the battery unit was down his pants so he could warm it up enough to make the shot.

Anti Tank Zombie Shot

Things are looking pretty grim for Team Murphy and their new Native Americans friends (after a rough start). There is a massive Zunami coming, and it is going to swarm everything in its path.

The episode ends with Warren telling Murphy he’s going to have to pick a world to live in, and to remember that the humans are trying to save him, while the zombies are trying to eat him.

Thankfully Doc is a genius and looking at a cave paining of buffalo and it reminds him of how the Native Americans hunted in ages past.

We Were Nowhere Near the Grand Canyon becomes a staple comment in future episodes across multiple seasons and it was a fun episode that scored a 72/100.
