What I’m Watching: iZombie

iZombie: Season 2, Episode 8 “The Hurt Stalker” (B+)

It took me a moment to process this episode’s incredibly clever title, one that spoke volumes about Liv’s condition in this episode while also making a smart reference to the safe that Major purchased for what we all initially thought to be records or proof of his zombie skills but was instead a vault for the engagement ring Liv gave back to him when she broke things off. This episode showed us a dark side of Liv as she descended into the stalker madness of the wedding planner with a thing for enforcers of the law whose brains she ate, but also delved deeper into one of the other characters on this show who we haven’t seen as much of previously. Liv knows that Major was sleeping with a Rita and has no idea that she’s actually Gilda. The devious redhead is not trying to be incognito and cover her tracks but instead seems jealous and is trying her best to get Major back, hardly an advisable move given her endgame. It can’t be long before Liv finds out who she is, and it’s not going to be pretty. Liv’s time in jail was pretty miserable, and luckily that didn’t last too long. I like how excited Ravi got by the tidbits he learned about Clive’s life, and the minor moments we got as a result of him talking about “Game of Thrones” and other unexpected gems from the usually reserved and private cop. Here’s to more of that soon, please!
