iZombie – Conspiracy Weary

iZombie - Conspiracy Weary television review

Heading into the two-part season finale, “Conspiracy Weary” features Liv (Rose McIver), Blaine (David Anders), and Don E (Bryce Hodgson) all on Zombie Truther conspiracy brains. While the joke gets a bit stale by the end of the episode, the single scene of the three arguing and building conspiracies off each other’s wild theories is pretty damn entertaining (as is the visual of the unlikely threesome sharing a brain following the rescue of Don E). Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) attempting to wrangle the three to solve his homicide turns out to be about as helpful as it sounds. Love takes a double whammy in this episode as Major (Robert Buckley) discovers a disturbing truth about Shawna (Sarah Jurgens) and Ravi‘s (Rahul Kohli) decision to tell Rachel (Ella Cannon) more about zombies turns out to have unintended consequences for all involved. One thin is sure heading into the season’s finale two episodes, the truth about zombies isn’t going to stay hidden much longer.

iZombie - Return of the Dead Guy television review

With no murder to solve this week the characters of iZombie have to find other ways to pass the time. For Liv (Rose McIver) that means hallucinating her old boyfriend after munching down on the brains of killer for Peyton (Aly Michalka). This puts more than a little crimp in her new relationship with Justin (Tongayi Chirisa). Major (Robert Buckley) has no such problems as his days and nights are full of lust and debauchery with his new friend Shawna (Sarah Jurgens). Ravi‘s (Rahul Kohli) time with the zombie truthers is a little less sexy now that they’ve captured Don E (Bryce Hodgson) and plan to expose the truth about zombies on a livestream. Oh, and Blaine (David Anders) gets an unexpected visit from his old boss.

iZombie - Dirt Nap Time / Eat a Knievel TV review

While Liv (Rose McIver) helps Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) investigate the murders of a preschool teacher and a reality-TV adrenaline junkie (Robert Ri’chard) “Dirt Nap Time” and “Eat a Knievel” bring a return to form for Blaine (David Anders). Depressed over his recent break-up with Peyton (Aly Michalka), Blaine’s life gets no easier with his father (Robert Knepper) and Don E (Bryce Hodgson) pushing in on his business and attempting to murder him. Returned to zombie form with a righteous fury, revenge on his dad, and big plans for zombie-kind, it appears the old Blaine is back. While I’m not surprised with the turn, I’d have liked to see the reformed Blaine stick around for a bit longer.

iZombie - Some Like It Hot Mess television review

“Some Like It Hot Mess” proves to be a gamechanger for several characters. With Liv (Rose McIver) on the brain of a scatterbrained millennial she’s of little help to Ravi (Rahul Kohli) in the morgue, Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) on the case, or the Major (Robert Buckley) who slowly begins showing the symptoms of memory loss after his return to human form. The situation also forces Blaine (David Anders) to come clean about a secret he’s been hiding for months, not only does the cure work but the memory loss side-effects are temporary. He remembers everything about his old life, a revelation that Peyton (Aly Michalka) is less than pleased to learn.
