Another zombie is on Liv’s radar. Like she says, “Two’s company, three’s a horde.” Nearby an abandoned warehouse, Ravi and Liv discover Marcy who worked with Liv and invited her to the boat party, and on top of that, she was turned into a zombie too. Yet, Marcy is stuck in a pit and as Liv describes, “she looks like a melted candle.” She hasn’t had access to brains and as a result, she’s wild and inhuman.
In this episode, Liv consumes a brain that belonged to a hitman. Taking on his personality, she lacks empathy and suddenly has a knack for trivia. She doesn’t even seem fazed when she sees a video of her ex-fiancé Major, kissing another girl or that she may have jeopardized her friend Peyton’s career. While the brain help suppress the hurt she feels, she eventually learns that she can’t ignore it forever. On the plus side, her visions do help Detective Babineaux solve this week’s case and track down the murder.
Early on in the episode, Blaine visits the morgue to confront Liv why she didn’t meet him and help him out with some brains. Considering he was the one who turned her into a zombie, I think it was smart on her part not to trust him. She did see him with shady characters when she did try to meet him in the first place. Understanding Liv doesn’t trust him nor want to help him, Blaine declares it’s every zombie for himself. I’m personality intrigued where this might go. What is Blaine planning to do? And will Liv’s choice not to trust him or help him have consequences?
As always, it is fun to see Ravi and Liv together. On other shows, sometimes it’s boring to watch the hero hold onto a secret and be tormented about it. In iZombie, it’s refreshing to see the main character have someone who knows her secrets and be able to console her. Despite being Liv’s boss, Ravi is a trusted friend. He desperately wants to find a cure. With Marcy around, he tries to test out his theories and hope for the best, for Liv’s sake.
But this time around he’s in danger, falling into the pit with Marcy who may have rip him to shreds. Lucky for him, Liv’s on his side and comes to his rescue. Liv protects him. And even though it seemed she could have turned on him, Ravi has enough faith that she’s strong enough to fight the urge to go full zombie mode. They make a pretty good team. Clive even asks Ravi to help with closing the case, ending the episode on a good note.
