iZombie - Return of the Dead Guy

With no murder to solve this week the characters of iZombie have to find other ways to pass the time. For Liv (Rose McIver) that means hallucinating her old boyfriend after munching down on the brains of killer for Peyton (Aly Michalka). This puts more than a little crimp in her new relationship with Justin (Tongayi Chirisa). Major (Robert Buckley) has no such problems as his days and nights are full of lust and debauchery with his new friend Shawna (Sarah Jurgens). Ravi's (Rahul Kohli) time with the zombie truthers is a little less sexy now that they've captured Don E (Bryce Hodgson) and plan to expose the truth about zombies on a livestream. Oh, and Blaine (David Anders) gets an unexpected visit from his old boss.

All-in-all that's quite a bit of plot for an episode without a murder to solve. Highlights of the week include Ravi standing up for what's right, Drake killing the mood, Liv and Petyon's "research" to trigger a vision, Stacey Boss (Eddie Jemison) learning the truth about zombies, and Liv and Blaine going full-on zombie as the episode comes to a close. The episode seem to tease hidden truths about new characters as both Shawna and Ravi's recent acquaintance Rachel (Ella Cannon) seem to have more complicated motivations than we've seen so far. One thing we do know is things seem to be heating up heading into the last episodes of the season.
