TV Review: iZombie S2E11 Fifty Shades of Grey Matter
Live and Clive investigate the murder of a young librarian who was secretly an erotic fiction writer. Meanwhile, things heat up between Blaine and someone unexpected; and Major is hit with an unforeseen snag in his plan.
iZombie is an interesting one tonight with Liv getting down with her dirty side as she eats the brain of an erotic fiction writer after a murder. As usual, it’s Rose McIver as Liv that’s the draw as she gets down with her sexy self.. and says some hilarious stuff while doing so. I actually found myself laughing at some of what she says, and how she says it. If it was written that way I won’t know, but the delivery is spot on.
The other big thing in the episode is Blaine’s story as detectives begin to circle around him and wanting to peg him for the various murders.
This plot line of the series is getting much better, especially where Major is concerned. He has to make some decisions about something that’d tie him to the murders, and it’s a bit heartbreaking. But, it also gets rid of a rather idiotic part of the plot and that character.
The series is doing a good job pivoting. While Liv is still the star, this season is focusing elsewhere a bit as various stories from last season are moved forward. This episode especially shows off how to do the show without everything circling around her.
Overall, after another break, a solid return and episode.
Overall Rating: 8.1
