What I’m Watching: iZombie

iZombie: Season 2, Episode 3 “Real Dead Housewife of Seattle” (B+)

I imagine that, eventually, maybe nine or ten years down the road, this show will run out of ways to make Liv’s latest state endlessly entertaining and terrific. That hasn’t even come close to happening, and eating the brains of a dead housewife made for one of the best experiences yet. The standout moment for me was definitely when Liv presumed that Clive was going to pull the car around for her so that she wouldn’t have to walk in her shoes, and his response was priceless. Finding out that she was shopping with the killer was another stellar scene, and I love that the employees at the store thought that her going full zombie mode was just a typical catfight worthy of calling the police, which prompted a humorous response from her about sort of being the police. Acting like a diva gave her the perfect excuse to slap Major, whose association with Vaughn only compounded the fact that he’s been ignoring her. Major and Gilda becoming a couple is an interesting development, but not quite as startling as the news that Gilda is actually Vaughn’s daughter! Peyton’s return makes things even juicier, and I have a feeling that she’ll be the first to realize that Gilda is hardly the roommate she was for Liv and that she doesn’t have her best interests in mind at all. Dropping off a cake for her is a good first step since I think that it’s going to take some time to mend the fences and for the two of them to be on good friendly terms again.
