After all of this time, iZombie finally did something that was long overdue.
On iZombie Season 4 Episode 3, they introduced a serial killer.
This is beyond exciting. They have had so many one-and-dones, but the idea of Clive and Liv chasing after a serial killer rather than solving their case by the end of the credits is the type of refreshing content iZombie Season 4 has been nailing thus far.
There was absolutely nothing to loathe about this installment. It was the show at its best. For one, the quips and witty lines were top-notch. Mere seconds in, Ravi kicked things off with his Harrison Ford quip, and they kept it up with too many zingers and quips to write down.
This show is hilarious.
I love that even when it takes serious, intense, and darker turns, it still doesn't lose the humor.

Whether it's Liv's blend of sass and physical comedy as she channels a new personality, Ravi's sarcasm, or Clive's dry humor. (There is never a time when I'm not 100% Clive in an episode, he just captures that exasperated "I'm so over this, but dammit, I love these people" vibe all too well).
Clive: Liv, was that a vision?
Liv: Yes, he is.
Permalink: Yes, he is. Added: March 11, 2018 Liv on hopeless romantic brain was one of the best to date.
It came with the traditional Rom-Com voiceover action distinctive than the standard voiceover, doe-eyed expressions at nearly any guy with a pulse, and playing Savage Garden's "Truly, Madly, Deeply" which is right up there with Sixpence's "Kiss Me" for the soundtrack of 90's-early 2000's rom-coms everywhere.
While we're on the music, Liv's favorite song is the Space Jam theme song. Liv, I love you!

Once again, Liv risked being completely consumed by the brain. Midway through, she was able to turn it around, and Liv managed to balance out who she is naturally and who Annie was.
What if the only reason she didn't lose herself completely this time is that there was so little brain for Liv to consume? Annie's brains were stolen, so that left Liv with the bare minimum.
Stolen brains presented an interesting problem that connected many of the characters. There is a brain shortage, and there are too many zombies out there to feed.
Chase, I feel for the poor guy. He's trying to keep things under control but he has a tenuous grasp on all things zombie at best.
The Fillmore Graves soldiers are taking bribes from coyotes, young cadets are scratching folks, and people like Dalton are profiting off of stealing brains from dead people and possibly arranging for people to get killed just for their brains.
Look, no one is going to blame you for the Darwin project, but you're supposed to feed these people, and if you fail in that, the 10,000 zombies we made will come for your head.
