iZombie: Eat, Pray, Live
April 21, 2017 2:02 PM - Season 3, Episode 3 - Subscribe

A lifestyle guru is murdered. Liv eats his brain but has no visions. Major has trouble getting up to speed at his new job and doesn't feel well. A now unfrozen Angus visits Blaine and sets up a new business with Don E. Ravi's attempts to get back with Peyton go from bad to worse. Far, far worse.

Nooo, it's CW relationship drama!

I'm starting to flag on this show. Feels like too much history bogging everything down. Happens to me with most shows. This one has lasted longer than most so far.

Also, worst hobo disguise ever.

Oh also, I worked on a Canadian TV movie with the guy who played the stern military training zombie, Mike Dopud! I remember him being pretty nice. And then of course now I notice him in everything (he's the Kremlin guard distracted by drips in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol).

Yeah the hobo was obvs even to my non-detective eye. And Zen Liv was boring.

Definitely a weaker entry, mostly for the aforementioned CW relationship nonsense. Putting Ravi in the middle of a horrible and contrived love quadrangle isn't cool.

Up side, Clive was great the whole time.

I am also not a fan of all the romantic drama that should soooo take a backseat to... y'know, zombies.

So Liv and Major's friend from work, eh?

And I suppose once Blaine recovers his memory (it's gonna happen), we'll have him as another villain? But like, fighting his dad and Don E?

Don't tell me Blaine has you fooled too!

I keep thinking the title of the episode should have been "Eat, Pray, Liv"

It is though?

Oh, I see on here it isn't. That's weird. On IMDB it's Liv.

But, but, why is Peyton like BETRAYED that the dude that she was totally NOT DATING has slept with someone else when she interrupts him at home late at night?

Did we really need to revert to the most archetypical American Puritan Romantic Martyrdom version of romantic relationships in this show for a cheap dramatic climax? Uggghghhh.

Yeah, typo on my part. :(

Well, this was kind of a boring brain week for Liv, but I think they structured it so she could deliver that line to Major about life and death with it.

On the one hand: I don't like Ravi turning into a man-jerk. No likey this. On the other hand, Peyton was overall handling it well by calling him on his shit. I could not for the life of me figure out why she'd be going back to him after all of that shit, though. Oh, wait, so we could have the ridiculous no pants reveal.

Seriously: BOTH OF Y'ALL CAN FUCK WHOEVER WHEN YOU ARE NOT OFFICIALLY TOGETHER AND YOU DO NOT GET TO GET UPSET AND ACT LIKE THEY CHEATED ON YOU. * I don't even remember them boinking--didn't they just have like, a few dates? Not enough relationship to build this angst on.

* though I concur that Peyton sleeping with a murdering asshole is bad, she didn't know that at the time, give her a break.

Mike Dopud figured prominently in Arrow's Bratva flashback storyline this season, and he was on Dark Matter last season. And Stargate Universe. Guy gets lost in space a fair amount.

No visions in this episode. Or did i miss one?

Oh, also, Christina Cox (Katty Kupps) played three different characters on two different Stargate series.

I wonder if David Nykl will turn up someday.

I loved the bit with Don E getting coffee in the rain, looking forlornly through the window at Blaine and the gang in the lounge. And Blaine's dad saying "That'll do, pig" to him.
