What I’m Watching: iZombie

iZombie: Season 3, Episode 9 “Twenty Sided, Die” (B+)

Continuing the very dark plotline from the end of last episode, it was an intriguing gamble for Ravi to speak up about knowing zombies exist and identify himself as a member of the police to a room full of angry zombie-haters. Things are looking grimmer by the moment as the humans who despise zombies are getting ready for a fight and the new man in charge at Fillmore Graves is captaining an army who will surely cause plenty of destruction and collateral damage when the world learns that zombies exist. Ravi announcing that he was working on a cure was a smart stall tactic, but unfortunately it didn’t take long for Don E to go a little out of his mind and get captured by the zombie-haters who presented him as proof that zombies very much do exist. The rest of the episode was considerably lighter, giving Liv yet another opportunity to indulge in something that the real Liv More, who we barely know at this point, would never be into at all. I liked that Peyton was bored out of her mind playing Dungeons and Dragons while Major got into it by being clever and choosing a first name that started with Sir. Clive’s excitement was the best, with a totally uncharacteristic request for Liv to save some of this brain so that they could play together again later. Major dating someone who seems to be more than okay with the fact that he was the Chaos Killer is an interesting development, and I’m sure there’s more there than meets the eye.
