As we learn more about Liv’s father, we get some questions finally answered with an iZombie flashback or two! Meanwhile, Liv and Ravi compete over raffle tickets, Hi Zombie premieres, Don E falls in love, Martin plots the downfall of humanity and Robin’s theories come true as this season takes the first steps in wrapping up the series. Doesn’t it feel like Season 5 just Blue Bayou?
Happy Father’s Day everyone! Liv finally reunites with her mother this week, and also her long lost father! And surprise! It’s Chromedome! Whaaaaaa?? Also, we have Ravi reffing some twin-fighting, Major ringing that Bell, Clive’s life getting pucked up, silent boyfriends, solid coffee tips and mayonnaise mystery sauce! Brain appetit!
Another top notch Season 5 episode takes the show and puts Blaine and Don E in the driver’s seat for once, and we are here to discuss it. Malcolm Goodwin knocked it out of the park in his iZOMBiE directorial debut, as the episode focused more on Blaine’s hustle and Don E’s angst and less about the case of the week. Plus, we theorize about such dangling threads such as Beanpole Bob and the Girl with the 8-Ball Tattoo…
Bob Dearden, the righteous dude that wrote this week’s episode, drops by the podcast to earn the pants that come with his Five-Timers jacket. We talk about the plight of Cameron Frye, the clock running out on Blaine, Enzo’s motives, homages to episodes past and even an Easter egg that Bob didn’t know about! He also says for the record that a) Clive actually is Batman and b) that’s not the regenerated corpse of Vaughn DuClark at the end of the episode! The question isn’t what are we going to talk about. The question is what aren’t we going to talk about.
