TV Review: iZombie (Season 4, Episode 12)
Share This Article:
iZombie aired it's penultimate episode, "You've Got To Hide Your Liv Away" this week, and after what has been a rather uneven season, it's clear that the writers are upping the stakes just in time for the finale, with an episode that sees Liv come under fire for her role as Renegade and Ravi finally getting one step closer to that elusive zombie cure iZombie has been kind of frustrating this season - we seem to have be going back and forth, getting some great, really standout episodes followed by episodes that just seem to be treading water and back again. However, the one thing iZombie always knows how to do is up the ante for the season finale and this year is no exception. The plotlines that have been building all season finally reach boiling point in this episode and it's definitely one of the more satisfying hours that iZombie has delivered this year. The episode begins where the last one left off; Fillmore Graves demanding that Liv (Renegade) comes forward otherwise they will execute her coyote in her place (with a tweet, of all things!). We all know that Liv is going to do it, because Liv is Liv and she's not going to let someone else die for her. From the promo, I was expecting Major to sacrifice himself in Liv's place, but no, no, he drugs her and kidnaps her instead. Then we have this whole weird Stepford wives 1950s sequence with Liv and Major on happy married couple brain, which aside from Liv's cute outfit, was ultimately just really weird and slightly unsettling, as it felt like Major was using the brain to manipulating her into cheating. That along with the kidnapping? Yeah more than a little bit dicey.
