Poor Liv. Everyone's getting the cure but her. Assumedly, Ravi can make more just as soon as he gets more ingredients. Or, will there be some twist that keeps him from being able to make more?

I do get weary of the now de riguer embarrassing zany behavior scene. It's bad enough that they set it up pretty much the same way in every episode with her and Clive at work, but the drunken nightclub version was particularly appalling. I get that she's under the influence, but it has been made clear that she is still Liv and can control the compulsions to some extent.

I wish they could just ditch the case of the week, but I guess that would mean less Clive :-(

Didn't they need the original tainted Utopium to create the cure?

I thought they only needed the tainted utopium to be able to test the cure?

Also isn't the blue thing that Blaine is making related to the memory loss? Why would he care about that, seeing as it's fictional now!

I really feel like in recent episodes they've let the brain personality take over waaay too much. But I can't tell if that's just lazy writing or if they're trying to show that Liv is getting fed up of being on different brains and not trying to resist as much?

I wonder if Blaine is going to start selling the blue stuff as a way for Zombies to intensely experience the lives of the brains they eat, like a Zombie "Strange Days."

I think some personalities come through stronger than others, I'd buy that.

It does seem like Blaine is going to try what drezdn said. He only knows that it was responsible fore longer visions, and that a brain was soaked in it to test the memory serum. I don't know how much of a background he has with creating Utopium, but I doubt he does. The only other possibility is that he's really trying to wipe his memory for good.

Ahh, I see. Always looking to turn it into a business venture - I see that.

I was surprised how quickly he admitted to Peyton that he had been faking all along, but I guess he knew the jig was up seeing as Major had already taken the cure.

Poor Liv. Back to being the only zombie in the "good guys" team.

Ah ha! I was right about the dominatrix murder not being entirely wrapped up.

And also about Blaine. Interesting that he genuinely lost his memory for a few days. Wonder if the writers could've taken it either way or this was always how it was going to end up.
