iZombie Recap 4/14/15 Season 1 Episode 5 -Flight of the Living Dead
iZombie begins with a group of over-adrenalized junkies just about to jump out a plane. This predictably is the prelude to the crime scene, which ends with a girl getting skewered by a tree branch. Laying nonchalant beneath the girl kebab is Liv, who seems to only be concerned how to make the perfect egg salad sandwich. (It’s about the egg to mayo ration, but that’s irrelevant.) While, at the crime scene she receives a phone call from her roommate Peyton. Turns out that the dead girl is actually Liv’s old sorority sister; Holly Wolf. While, the Medical Examiner said that the death was pretty straight-forward, Holly’s friend calls foul-play.
Holly Wolf was the rebel of the sorority sisters. The girl who lived by the motto “Do it Live! (Until you die a horrible adventure-induced death)” Holly got kicked out of the sorority house for being too uninhibited; not living up to moral standards as set by her fellow sisters. Because she personally knew the victim, it made for a more than usually introspective Liv.
As Liv mourned the death of her fiery-spirited friend, her ex- fiancé was still worried about Eddie and Jerome. Major took the step to see Clive, see if maybe the Cop can help find the lost boys. At first, Clive is resistant to looking further into the boys’ disappearance. There are no bodies therefore he can’t act. But, Major reminds him of the “Candyman,” the creepy dude that was haunting the skate park that Jerome and Eddie frequented.
