iZombie: Reflections of the Way Liv Used to Be
April 8, 2016 1:28 AM - Season 2, Episode 17 - Subscribe

Liv and Detective Babineaux are investigating the murder of Bailey Barker, a type-A, ambitious, hyper-competitive and driven student near the top of her class. After consuming Bailey’s brain we see Liv become very much like the girl she was before becoming a zombie. Meanwhile, things seem to be going from bad to worse for Major, and Blaine reaches out to Ravi for help.

Lots of stuff happening and only two more episodes left for the season (it was renewed for season three). I don't know where they're going with all of this -- the show keeps setting things up so that it seems like everything is about to change, and then it doesn't all change.

And, those final two episodes are running back-to-back next week. The fun starts an hour earlier.

I missed this watching the show but I read elsewhere that Vaughn's henchman whispered "He's got a shed" to Vaughn just before he was to work out with Major.

Lots of set-up indeed! The show has been planting bombs everywhere and now there's only two episodes left for all of them to explode.

This is one of those episodes that I loved in the moment but can't pass a deeper judgment on until the cliffhangers get some resolution.

Some thoughts:
* I heard the shed thing. I actually thought it was whispered too loud, and found that a little jarring. I don't think Vaughn is going to want the cops getting their hands on it, though - he *cannot* want the CDC to become aware of anything zombie related. He can fight the Seattle PD, but not the Feds, and he has to know that.

* Very curious what's going to happen to Rita.

* I don't think the case against Major is great right now, not without the aforementioned shed.

* Major on positivity brain was, indeed, the best. Like Ravi, I wanted to just follow Major around for a day. It does highlight how poorly they used the 'other zombies on brains' thing in prior episodes though. (Ditto the musician brain party at Blaine's.)

* I was happy to see the bro dudes again, and delighted at their reaction to new Liv.

I'm just so glad everything's okay with Ravi and Major. I like them both so much and that friendship really matters to me and I was so afraid that they were going to have a serious falling-out and it was going to break my heart.

I got a real kick out of Major on optimism brain. That's delightful!

With the captions on, the guard definitely said "...he's got a shed" to Vaughn. I wonder if that case will expose the zombies.

Also, Don E acting like the boss of the basement is hilarious to me. And the Chief playing the washboard is so great.

After initially not finding him interesting, Don E has really grown on me as the story progressed. Him being the boss is one of the bombs I had in mind because there is no way that can go well.
