Before I review iZombie 1.5 “Flight Of The Living Dead,” let me recap what happened to the cutest zombie in America last week.
Previously, on iZombie 1.4 “Live and Let Clive,” this episode was about… you guessed it – Clive (Malcolm Goodwin)! It was an Asian gang murder (you could tell by the missing fingers), and Liv’s (Rose McIver) vision stars Clive as the bad guy! Now normally she would give him the benefit of the doubt, but he is also being very secretive and not letting him help on the case. Dr. Ravi (Rahul Kohli) thinks she’s jumping to conclusions and we now know he was right.
The other storyline is the lucrative brain business that Blaine (David Anders) is running. He has a chef creating brain “delicacies” and his market is rich zombies. Two of his goons try to branch out but are shut down almost immediately. Sadly, it looks like the supply is coming from people no one would look for. But Major (Robert Buckley) is looking.
iZombie 1.5 “Flight Of The Living Dead,” review: This episode brought the level of quality of the show even higher. Liv’s lunch ended up being someone she knew in college, a girl who was an adrenaline junkie – who lived life to the fullest… until it killed her. Impaled by a tree during a skydiving jump turned wrong, Liv didn’t even know she knew the girl, until her roommate called her and told her there were “RIP’s” all over social media about a tragic skydiving accident. While sad about the death of her friend, the mentality she consumed made her feel so happy and free.
Major is majorly worried about Jerome (he should be but it’s too late). He looks for help. Watch to see what happens to him during his civilian investigation.
Clive’s boss is giving him a very hard time, after he investigates bunches outside his jurisdiction. Is his boss hiding something?
– The discovery at the skate park gave me the chills, even though we know mostly what goes on there anyway.
– I want Dr. Ravi to be my best friend too.
– More David Anders please!
– Clive getting in trouble at work is getting tired. He cares too much. Can he start getting recognized for his hard work and ethics?
– The best best best part(s) is who Liv meets during the investigation of her friend. This person is gonna be big. I know it.
– The only thing that threw me was the very end. I felt confused. Any ideas?
iZombie airs Tuesdays at 9pm ET on The CW.
