Major’s real plan is revealed as Blaine faces threats from several sources while working to stay ahead of new threats in an entertaining pair of episodes that bring into sharper focus the various forces converging on Liv and her allies.
Blaine’s attempts to gain a monopoly on the Utopium trade once again puts him on a collision course with Liv, this time via Peyton, while Major realises the futility of trying to cope with his situation alone.
iZombie makes a strong return in its second season premiere, introducing a more fearsome foe as it explores the full capability of Max Rager’s Vaughn Du Clark, while delving into the fallout from both Major’s actions at the Meat Cute and from Liv giving him the zombie cure Ravi had created.
Liv and Major both try to deal with their individual issues from last week’s episode, as Max Rager re-enters the picture as a potential antagonistic force in a compelling episode that advances the plot while still focusing on character development.
Major takes a few steps closer to discovering the existence of zombies as Ravi comes closer to discovering a cure, possibly at his own peril. Liv, meanwhile, discovers that Lowell hasn’t been completely truthful about the source of his zombie brains.
Major’s actions cause him to potentially get on Blaine’s radar while getting alienated from Clive and the police force at large, while the Lieutenant further solidifies the possibility that he’s working with Blaine while beginning to suspect Liv in a compelling outing from the show.
