Blaine wasn't kidding when he said it's a New Seattle!
On iZombie Season 4 Episode 1, Seattle as we knew it has completely changed, but oddly enough, much of what we loved has remained the same.
It's impressive that the show managed to reinvent itself while staying true to itself and what makes it so unique and enjoyable.
First off, we have to talk about Ravi's limbo state. He's not a zombie, he's still human, but he exhibits zombie characteristics every few weeks.
So the good news is, his vaccination has been effective. The bad news is, what Liv has hilariously referred to as "his time of the month," Ravi experiences brain cravings, consumes brain and has to rock a streak in his hair at least once a month.
What does that make him, exactly? It's an odd in-between stage between the living and the undead.
This is ideal because we get the best of both worlds. Ravi is allowed to remain blessedly human for the foreseeable future, but he also gets in on the brain action every now and then. That's going to be a hell of a ride. He was a riot as a nudist, I'm sorry, a naturist.
There's also the matter of how he will go about recreating his vaccine as it proves to be a success.

Seattle may be in dire need of it. It will fare better than what Chase has to offer. Chase is in over his head. He's bitten off more than he can chew, and it appears as if deep down he knows it.
Only three days after he made zombies public, the city was quarantined off with, you guessed it, a wall. It's a heavily guarded wall too, but a few thousand humans were able to flee, in what Peyton, Baracus and their cohorts referred to as the "Exodus."
What has come about is what many of us could have predicted: vigilante groups, bigotry, rations... Seattle has become a militarized city under the control of a zombie who is solely responsible for the city descending into chaos and turmoil.
Blaine: Is that a guillotine?
Chase: Of sorts. It's a guillotine for zombies.
Blaine: But why? We're zombies.
Chase: Zero tolerance. That's our message.
Blaine: Message received.
Permalink: It's a guillotine for zombies Added: February 20, 2018 The reaction to Chase will be the most interesting. He's a dictator, but he's operating under the guise that he isn't. In his mind, he's being pragmatic about this entire ordeal, but he crosses lines.
At some point, it will come back to hunt him. We namely saw the potential tension brewing through his interactions with Blaine and Major.
Blaine is not the type of guy who responds well to being under someone else's thumb, and Chase has him by the short and curlies, as he so eloquently described it. The only way Blaine can keep his multiple businesses open and thriving is by leaking information to Chase.
Blaine's conundrum when it comes to Chase won't be a moral..
