What I’m Watching: iZombie

iZombie: Season 3, Episode 7 “Dirt Nap Time” (B+)

The absence of that much-needed dose of the cure didn’t play a major part in this episode since life – or what remains of it for Liv - must go on. Instead of becoming human again, she got to take on the personality of a preschool teacher obsessed with turning every moment into an opportunity to treat others like his students. This has to be one of the more entertaining iterations of Liv on zombie brain that we’ve seen, and I love that she frequently brought out puppets and put a suspect in time-out while he was being interrogated. The fact that she told both Clive and Major that they could be astronauts if they wanted and that she started her romance with Justin off on a good note since she liked passing notes with him was just as entertaining. It didn’t take Justin long to realize that Major was now human, and keeping that a secret is going to be harder than he thought. Justin going full-zombie on video can’t lead anywhere good, and I hope that he won’t personally suffer the consequences. Blaine has now been excluded from everything – his relationship with Peyton and his business – and getting shot by a man sent by his father seems as fitting an ending as any. Given the number of times he’s bounced back from what seemed like a definitive fate, I can’t imagine that this is the last we’ll see of the white-haired liar who may very well be turned into a zombie once again.
