iZombie Review – “Dead Rat, Live Rat, Brown Rat, White Rat”


Kyle’s Review

Sorry but I’ve fallen behind again with Geekly posts, because I’m working on my book and hope to be done before the end of the summer. We’ll see. Anyway, iZombie had another interesting episode with “Dead Rat, Live Rat, Brown Rat, White Rat.” Evan Moore, Liv’s brother, finally joins the Brain Café waiting staff, so that’ll link Liv to Blaine even more than she already is. Matters get worse with Major, who finds himself on the wrong side of the Brain Café—not that there’s a right side to the Brain Café.

The cured rat failed as a zombie panacea but it was too good to be true. If Dr. Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli) solved the zombie epidemic, the series wouldn’t last long and iZombie’s already renewed for another season. Frankly, I think the rat cure was iZombie’s exit strategy for the first season if they had gotten canceled. Regardless, we can put this storyline to rest – for the moment – and concentrate on the growing zombie drama.

Congratulations, Liv. You created your own zombie and he was the focus of this week’s mystery. It was only a matter of time until Liv got tangled into Seattle’s increasing death-rate and iZombie handled it well. Things got tied in a neat bow fast and the aftermath resulted in Liv getting outed as a zombie to her bestie, Peyton. We’ll have to see where this goes but with all the other threads converging for a big showdown with Blaine next week, iZombie’s primed for a thrilling finale.
