iZombie Recap 3/24/15 Season 1, Ep. 2 ‘Brother, Can you Spare a Brain?’
iZombie begging Lola screaming and the camera panning over her husband with a paintbrush thrust into his eye socket. Cut to Liv, Ravi, and Clive examining the scene of the crime. We discover that the man of the beyond dead persuasion is Javier: a famous modern artist known for his provocative yet whimsical nudes. Detective Clive surveys the scene and automatically deduces that it’s the wife who did it. It’s ALWAYS the wife. While, surveying the scene, Liv is still trying to remedy her fake psychic life with her “real” zombie one. While, Clive thinks that Liv is psychic, Ravi knows that she’s a zombie. When Live eats a brain, not only does she embody some of said person’s characteristics, but she also has their memories or visions, if you will.
Cut to Major (Yes, that is his name), Liv’s ex-fiance, who keeps trying to insert himself into her life. Six months after their break-up and he is still dropping by her apartment all willy-nilly for no real reason other than rattling the usually cool Liv. That night, Liv had one of her recurring nightmares about Blaine. Yes, a Zombie having a nightmare about Zombies. Very meta.
Blaine is Liv’s origin story. He is the prick that Liv met on the boat party the night she became a zombie. So the story goes, he tried to slip Liv Utopium, and slip her some of Blaine. She rejected him and he turned her into a zombie. Later, Liv has a vision. Her vision is that of Javier undressing a hot thing while whispering sweet Spanish nothings into her ear. We then hear the distinct sound of a door opening, and the girl looking to the side startled.
