iZombie Recap 4/21/15 Season 1, Ep. 6- Virtual Reality Bites
iZombie started with Major laying motionless on the slab in the autopsy room. In case you’re having PTSD palpitations because you’re probably not completely over the loss of Zayn, well SIKE Major is actually still alive! He’s just badly in need of stitches after the ass-kicking he received from the fat man in the last episode. Liv walks in on Ravi badly stitching up Frankenstein’s Major Monster. She starts getting all parental and starts clucking about the scars, so she takes on the stitching up of Major’s bland and blah face all on her own.
While, that nauseatingly adorable moment was taking place between the two former lovers, Blaine’s Cougar was waiting on her gourmet brains delivery. Usually, when the delivery boy screws up your order you get a free chocolate lava cake out of it and maybe a few good passive aggressive tweets for your feed out of it. Anyway, the delivery boy screwed up the Cougar’s order and ends up getting his head hacked off and his brains eaten. Although, if this was a porn alternate universe, I’m pretty sure it would still have the same decapitation ending.
Anyway, this leads us into this week’s case. Simon Cutler aka “The Sim Reaper” was found completely dead and horribly puffy. The Sim Reaper was the perfect archetype of an internet troll. While, he happened to be the most hated man on the internet, he was also a shut-in and had a penchant for artery-clogging fast food. Every nerd ever described ever, really. The only real recording the police had of Simon was a phone conversation where he completely eviscerated a customer service representative. This is Chekhov’s gun. Pay Attention. Yes, I’m vaguely ruining the plot, but the recap ruins it for you anyway. As the police are investigating the crime scene, they see Cutler’s sticky and outdated shag carpeting, which also happens to be covered in confetti. They automatically assumed that it was for Simon Cutler’s birthday. They also assumed, that he probably died of a heart attack.
