iZombie - Eat, Pray, Liv

There's actually quite a bit going on in "Eat, Pray, Liv" which is held together by the Liv (Rose McIver) becoming more zen after ingesting the brain of a murdered self-help guru, eventually helping Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) solve the man's murder. The awkwardness between Ravi (Rahul Kohli) and Peyton (Aly Michalka) isn't improved by Ravi admitting his true feelings or strong-arming Blaine (David Anders) to try the experimental memory cure now that Major (Robert Buckley) is on borrowed time.

While not as zany as Major acting like a teenage girl in last week's episode, there's plenty of fun here including the new zombie soldier repeatedly getting pwned by his co-workers. There's also a fun sequence of Major giving one of his new friends (Tongayi Chirisa) a taste of "the real thing" leading to an unexpected game night with Liv. Teasing the possible return of the real Blaine may mean a shake-up for everyone involved, especially given Peyton's growing friendship with the, improved, amnesiac version.
