iZombie Writers Up Their Game

On Tuesday’s iZombie episode, the writers gave viewers a lot of family and co-worker feels and an ending that might foreshadow a frightening future plot possibility.

The main dead body of the week belonged to Emily Sparrow — a pregnant rich girl who went missing months before. Her boyfriend had been under investigation for killing her, but she appeared near a campsite and died. The baby survived.

After eating Emily’s brain, Liv fell prey to heightened maternal instincts, which resulted in her babying most of the male characters, connecting better with her mother and brother and realizing that zombies can’t have children.
Ong noticed that the episode had a lot of connected stories: Liv and the police discovered that a couple kidnapped Emily for a sister-wife setup in their home. Clive was desk-benched for allowing the press to print his negative quote about the missing skate park kids. Major was arrested for breaking into the Candyman’s car. Clive’s boss went full-on zombie mode and killed the kidnappers. Lowell ate the brain of a gay scientist and couldn’t express sexual feelings for Liv. Lastly, Ravi started testing potential zombie-ism sources with terrifying results…

Max Rager mixed with 40 percent Utopium caused zombie-ism in a test rat that then tore through its cage bars and ate the other rats. Given how quickly plagues spread with rats, some fans now wonder if Ravi accidentally started a full-on Zombie Apocalypse.
