Some of the best romances are born out of friendship. Then again, some of the best friendships are trashed by romance.
Who has time to decide which situation Liv and Lowell are dealing with when zombies are afoot, and pregnant women are being held hostage left and right! No matter, iZombie Season 1 Episode 7 tries to tackle all of these topics in the same episode!
Today, your iZombie Round Table is populated by TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Whitney Evans, Amanda Steinmetz, Terri Clark, and Lindsay MacDonald. We'll be breaking down that Livwell date as well the future of Babineux's zombie lieutenant. Plus, is Major ever going to reach the end of the zombie bread crumb trail?

Favorite scene/joke/quote of the episode?
Stacy: I loved the scene where Liv was babbling to Ravi about the kiss with Lowell and asking him if it seemed sparky to him. I loved his "Oh, I was supposed to be watching that?"
Whitney: Everything about Liv and Lowell's date was my favorite, especially the little quip about Idris Elba. He really is a big piece of yum!
Amanda: Ravi's reaction to Liv talking to him about the kiss with Lowell was hilarious. He may be her buddy, but he definitely doesn't want to be one of the girls.
Terri: I laughed really hard when Lowell shuddered after Liv tried to kiss him and then he confessed he was temporarily gay until the next brain he ate. But the entire date montage was too adorable!
Lindsay: Any mention of Idris Elba is good with me. "Climb that mountain" had me in stitches.
Ravi's zombie rats took an unexpected turn. What do you think this means for the cure?
Stacy: It's not looking good, but it's too early to make a significant stride on that front. He'll make some progress eventually.
Whitney: I agree with Stacy, it's way too early for them to find a cure. We're only 7 episodes in here!
Amanda: It's a set back for sure, but we all agree Ravi can't find a cure this early. There would be no show.
Terri: Ditto! But it goes to show that we could run into other zombie animals. Perhaps a zombie hound for Blaine?
Lindsay: I agree it's too soon for a cure, but I expect Ravi to make some sort of break through by the end of the season. Even if it's just solving the mystery of what the heck Utopium is, I want a few answers!
Liv and Lowell's date was 10 kinds of adorable. But very platonic. Are they better as friends or should they get down to it already?
Stacy: I definitely predicted he ate a gay brain before they said it, but their date was hilarious and fun to watch, especially the moon walking. They're great as a couple, and I do not want them just as friends, though, it's obvious Liv still has feelings for Major as well.
Whitney: I did not see the whole gay angle coming, but I love that their truly becoming friends and not just jumping into bed together, although it looks like that may be just an episode away! While I like their friendship, I think the chemistry is just too strong between them for it to stay that way.
Amanda: Their platonic date was totally adorable! I definitely want them to be more than friends. However, there's still that little part of me that doubts Lowell's intentions, especially after asking Ravi those questions about the rats.
Terri: I would cry if they were strictly platonic! I'm shipping these two hard and definitely want to see them take it to the next level.
Lindsay: I'm still holding out some hope for Major, but I think Liv and Lowell's chemistry is about to explode. That being said, I think Amanda is on to something with Lowell's interest in the rats. I'm not sure it's a coincidence that the zombie rat got out of his cage...
Lieutenant Zombie seems to recognize what Liv is, but will he reach out? Or is he loyal to Blaine?
Stacy: I think he's loyal to Blaine. I don't expect him to reach out to Liv, he wants to keep his cover. Him knowing about her could be a problem though.
Whitney: He's probably pretty loyal to Blaine, but we don't know enough about him to know what his real agenda is. It would be nice if he ended up being an ally to Liv.
Amanda: We don't know enough yet about his ties to Blaine. Blaine's control seems to be everywhere. I suspect he's known about her for a while from Blaine.
Terri: I think he's bad to the bone and this could spell trouble for Liv. He must know how she's helping Babineaux now.
Lindsay: Terri brings up a good point. If he didn't know about Liv, then I bet it's becoming clear just how Babineaux is solving his cases. And how dangerous that alliance could be if Babineaux focuses on the missing kids.
Will Major find out about the zombies by the end of the season, or do you think they'll drag it out longer than that?
Stacy: That's a good question. He's on the right track, but I think the end of the season is too soon to bring him into the mix, especially since it is a short season. I would wait until next season, mostly because I don't want to see a love triangle develop if he finds out Liv is a zombie and decides he doesn't care.
Whitney: I have a feeling the big cliffhanger at the end of the season will be someone finding out she's a zombie. I just haven't figured out if that will be Babinaux, Major or even Peyton. He'll need to know the truth though before he and Liv get their second chance.
Amanda: I don't necessarily think Major will find out Liv is a zombie, but maybe he'll figure out that zombies exist in the finale. He already got one step closer by finding the brain in this episode. If not Major, then my other guess is Babineaux will find out.
Terri: I don't know. He's smack dab in the middle of the missing teen storyline aka zombie central. My call is that he'll start to suspect zombies, but won't make the connection to Liv yet.
Lindsay: I agree it's a little soon for Major to be brought in on the zombie secret. If I had to tap someone to find out, it would be Babineaux. It's less dramatic than Major finding out, but probably a lot funnier.
