What I’m Watching: iZombie

iZombie: Season 2, Episode 11 “Fifty Shades of Grey Matter” (B+)

Starting this episode out in a library did not prepare for me for its rather explicit content, but of course Rose McIver was more than able to convincingly up the romance and excitement factor of every scene as her erotica novelist brain compelled her to find the sex in every possible situation. Hitting on Ravi and Clive staring at her cleavage were highlights, but the best moment of all was when she asked if Ravi and Major had ever wrestled and then asked them to film it if they did. Liv nearly got some action of her own as she opened up to her new zombie pal and asked him if he had ever been handcuffed, but, being the good person that she is, she couldn’t go through with it in the heat of the moment because she had essentially drugged him. Peyton and Blaine got very close, and her coming in to declare his immunity was a short-lived moment of triumph. It didn’t take long for her to come to Liv and realize who he was, but the mistake was already made. The episode ended on an unexpected note as Liv revealed that she too had decided to go the distance with another unknown entity. I don’t think that will work out too terribly, though I worry that he’s in danger of biting the dust permanently soon. It would have been great for her to reconnect with Major, but he was too busy getting rid of Minor to cover the evidence that nearly led Clive right to him.
