It’s the season finale of iZombie and you know what that means: this is the episode where Blaine quotes the Rolling Stones and calls himself “the Mick Jagger here” (never mind that it’s really a cover of an Irma Thomas song). So after last week, Blaine is holding Boyfriend (a.k.a. the man who knows too much) in the freezer. Already dead!
As we join Detective Clive, Dr. Ravi and Liv in the lab, it seems the poor little drummer girl of the Asshats met her maker last week in that harrowing scene at the motel. Naturally her sarcastic brains are Liv’s meal for the episode. That doesn’t stop her from having an emotional breakdown about Roommate ADA catching her turning full zombie, freaking and fleeing the apartment. Dr. Ravi refuses to give her his zombie cure until he’s sure they can turn all the other zombies back into humans, which Liv agrees with for reasons that do not jibe with her usually selfish worldview. But that thought is interrupted by a flash memory from the sassy drummer that leads Liv to believe Max Rager was behind all those kids, or rather witnesses, getting killed over the last few episodes.
And what’s going on in the big bad world of Max Rager? Vaughn, the CEO with no conscience, is back and interviewing a new head of research and development for the company. Sebastian the zombie turned himself in to the Rager and kind of killed the old head of R&D during a questioning. Naturally he claims to have been in Milan when Liv and Detective Clive show up. Oldest excuse in the book. Vaughn is (un)pleasantly surprised to find his soldier Sebastian was killed by Liv.
