This week’s episode of iZombie has taught me two things: 1) how to weaponize confetti and, 2)  what not to do with my life in the near feature. Although it has kind of inspired me to become a hacker which I think would be a nifty skill to have, don’t you think?

Major Death: The episode begins with Major looking worse for the wear after getting his ass handed to him by Blaine’s goon. Ravi is busy stitching him up, when Liv walks in to see her ex-fiance on the morgue table. She chastises them both and fixes Ravi’s crappy stitching job.

Happy Birthday: Ravi and Liv then go to a crime scene where a decomposing corpse lays on the stairs; it is absolutely disgusting, I almost vomited. We learn that the victim of the week is named Simon Cutler, a.k.a. SIM Reaper, a notorious troller and hacker. He is also an apparent shut in and one of the most hated men on the internet. The bloated, disfigured, and disgusting body is brought to the morgue, and once Clive realizes that he was murdered, thanks to the birthday card that flung peanut powder- Liv is forced to suck it up, the brains that is – literally gag.

Shut In: The new brain of SIM Reaper causes Liv to be a shut in, but she also acquires the skills of a hacker and kick ass gamer. Ravi and her decide it is RPG time in order to figure out who murdered SIM. The two quickly learn that SIM was getting tons of death threats, but none of them actually meant anything. That is until they found the singular voice recording of SIM yelling at a poor donut customer service rep saying that  he would destroy them.

Date Night: Due to Liv’s new found agoraphobia she has to miss her date with Lowell, I almost cried, but that does not stop my favorite British bastard from coming through. Lowell comes to Liv’s apartment and the two bond over brain eating and vision living. Lowell then tries to kiss Liv, and my heart dies a little, but she turns her head; causing an awkward moment for them both and Lowell to quickly leave the apartment. However, before he leaves Liv gets another lead in the SIM Reaper case!

Donut Shop: Liv realizes that SIM Reaper never left his apartment and that the donut shop he was addicted to must only deliver in a 3 mile radius of his house. Liv then does some research, has another vision, which leads her and Clive to bring in the customer service representatives brother. Apparently SIM Reaper destroyed the girls life and she committed suicide. Her brother went out for revenge and regrets nothing. Meanwhile, Liv goes to one of Blaine’s private practices and KISSES HIM! I AM SO HAPPY I COULD DIE, fangirl flail!!!

Blaine Corner: Meanwhile, Blaine’s hot cougar kills his delivery boy because he forgets the brains upon his delivery. She goes full zombie and hides the body from Blaine, where it turns up in the morgue headless. Ravi does some work on it and discovers that the delivery boys stomach contained hundreds of dollars worth of food. Clive goes to investigate and goes to Blaine’s shop. Blaine answers the door and says he has never seen the delivery boy before. Clive is suspicious but gets distracted by Liv’s call. On the other side of town Major finds a clear picture of the candyman and Blaine, which he shows to Ravi … bum bum bum.
