iZombie - Blaine's World

iZombie closes out its first season wrapping up the murders from last week's episode and presenting Liv (Rose McIver) with a series of awful choices when she discovers Major (Robert Buckley) is being held by Blaine (David Anders) who is hellbent on getting his astronaut brains back from Liv's old boyfriend. Although the season finale doesn't make any movement on Peyton (Aly Michalka) reacting to her best friend being a zombie it does wrap-up several plotlines including Major learning Liv's secret and Liv making painful choices regarding the limited amount of zombie cure that leave our heroine a member of the undead for the foreseeable future.

With her family still in the dark and those besides Ravi (Rahul Kohli) not knowing her secret at work there's still plenty of secrets to keep hidden next season but Liv's choices involving both Blaine and Major are likely to lead to some big changes next season in her relationship to both characters. And given how the episode comes to a close Liv's choice to give Major the last remaining dose of cure while condemning her brother to death rather than transform him into a zombie means we'll obviously see big fallout concerning her personal relationships as well. With "Blaine's World" iZombie caps an impressive Freshman season. I can't wait to see what it has in store when it returns with new episodes.
