TV Review: iZombie S2E18 Dead Beat

normal_izombietv_s01promo_001-1~0Liv and Ravi need help and find an unlikely ally in Blaine; Babineaux and Dale Bozzio pursue a new lead in an old case; sleazy Brant Stone comes to Major’s rescue; Vaughn’s evil side reaches a whole new level of mean.

iZombie begins to wrap up its second season with this first part of the two part season finale. This episode alone is worthy of being the finale itself with lots of twists, turns, and reveals, some of which I didn’t expect at all.

Yeah, there’s just so much in this episode alone and to go into a lot of it, it’d just ruin it all, but the series goes places I didn’t expect at all and there’s reveals I didn’t expect to happen for a bit longer.

The episode completely circles around Major and his arrest as the Chaos Killer. There’s lots of predictable things presented, but what the episode does really well as treat the whole situation as a ticking time bomb until Major turns in jail and all hell breaks loose. That is pretty fun I think and something that’s new to the series.

There’s one huge thing at the end of the episode that will possibly change a character in a major way, and changing characters is a common thing in this episode. There’s a bunch of that, lots of that. And team zombie looks to be expanding in many ways.

The end of the episode sets up what should be one hell of a season finale… luckily we don’t have to wait long to see it.
