I nth that throwing in a lot of noobs at this point is kind of pointless in the GRRM sort of way.

I did enjoy the whole "for the love of god, make this Hi Zombie thing funnier" plot though.

I don't know if I'm spacing out, or if this show is getting a little lazier with the writing in the procedural parts.

When Liv talked to Clive after she had the vision with the zombie interim CEO talking to Piercey about what Fixture King was buying from him, wasn't the implication - that Fixture King was getting user data so he could ID all the zombies in Seattle - the reason Clive thought he could get a warrant? Nothing about that vision suggested to me that they'd expect to find the poisonous mushroom at Fixture King's house. And yet, that's what played out. Later when they did talk about the potential threat of outing all zombies they discussed it like it was a brand new realization.

What did I miss? Am I off base here? There was a similar thing in the resolution of the dancer murder case the previous episode.

I feel like they writers are kind of phoning it in on the procedural stuff this season. I understand, they have a lot to cover, but I'm confused.

under_petticoat_rule, you're not crazy. The writing is getting very sloppy with the details and the actual procedural crime bits are halfhearted at best. It's frustrating to me.
