iZombie Season 2 Episode 17 Review: Reflections of the Way Liv Used to Be

at .  Updated at .

iZombie delivers another solid episode as we near the end of the season.

The last few moments of iZombie Season 2 Episode 17 leave us with a zillion questions about what this arrest means for everyone, especially Major. 

Having Major on positivity brain made those last few moments sting even more. With Major's arrest, are you worried that this is the end of our dear, sweet Mr. Lilywhite? 

Can we even fathom a show without him? Even through his lies, he is such a good man. How can we lose him? 

There were a few jaw dropping moments on iZombie Season 2 Episode 17, so let's start with Lou, the sort of shady Vice Detective. Being a huge Veronica Mars fan, I have to say how much I love that Enrico Colantoni is playing a rough, rule breaking cop. Keith Mars would not approve! 

I have some hair to dye and some skin to spray tan! Carpe diem!


Lou's program to catch other drug dealers and buyers is like a utopium pyramid scheme, but in his defense, it seems to be working. The only problem being that the Lucky U folks are zombies, and they have their hooks in one of Lou's informants. I thought for sure that Chief was going to kill Lou.

One hard punch to the head wasn't enough to keep Lou down. Thankfully!

He lives to smack talk Clive another day. Lou may have some good intentions, but why is it so bad that Clive follows the rules? I am Team Clive on this one. His fellow officers don't seem to like him very much, which I find odd. Maybe the rest of the department is keen on rule breaking, too. 

I still firmly believe Lou knows about the zombies. The way he brought the concept of zombies up was a little curious. Could he have been trying to see Liv's reaction? Seems a bit shady to me. 

Idle brains are the devil's workshop.

Speaking of shady, I still can't decide if Blaine is faking it. There has to be some way to tell, right? I just can't wrap my head around the idea of Blaine never being Blaine again.  

My only issue with the episode was that there wasn't quite enough Ravi. He absolutely killed it on iZombie Season 2 Episode 16 when he found out Major's secret. I was hoping there would be more emotional interactions between Major and Ravi in this episode, too, but they hashed it out pretty quickly. 

Ravi and Major have such an amazing dynamic. I was hoping to see that explored a little further. Even with Major's good intentions, it must really hurt Ravi that he wasn't able to trust him. 

Now let's move on to Major. Wow. I knew it was coming. I knew Bozzio was getting closer to him in some way, but I did not see that coming so quickly. He looked so terrified when the FBI swarmed him, and I panicked when those agents ran off the elevator.  

Idle brains are the devil's workshop.

Major's arrest brings a flood of questions. Do you think that he will try to sell out Max Rager? Will Clive try to help him when Liv begs him to because we know she will. What happens with the freezer zombies now that Blaine can't remember and Major is in the slammer? 

Will Major try to take out Blaine's operation too?! Major was tied into everything. The shockwaves of his arrest are going to be felt everywhere, by everyone.  

There is no way Major can stay in prison. He is a zombie now! Is this how everyone finds out? Or is this how the zombie apocalypse starts? 

iZombie Season 2 Episode 18 is the first of the two-part finale that will hopefully answer some of these burning questions. In the meantime, let's cross our fingers for Major. He will need it.
