WARNING: This review contains spoilers
Ever since Rose McIver revealed during Comic Con that she would be playing guitar and singing in this new season, fans of iZombie have been waiting for ‘Even Cowgirls Get the Black and Blues’. And it was worth it!
As we saw last episode, Peyton is back in action with her new Utopium initiative. Her situations leads her to cross paths with Blaine, who is keeping himself very busy. We’ll see how this relationship develops but, judging by Peyton’s words in the last minutes, it could be that Peyton is interested in Blaine. Is she moving on from Ravi? Even though their relationship is good, it is obvious that they are still awkward around each other so I’m pretty sure that we will see them back together. Oh, and I didn’t realize how much I missed Peyton and Liv’s interactions! Their conversation was very sweet and I’m glad that they could clear everything up.
As a matter of fact, this episode had a lot to do with coming clean with others. Sure, it got a bit cheesy at some points, but Liv’s speech to Major was one of the best moments from this season so far. Major has gone way too far with his drug addiction, leading him not only to be cold with everyone around him, but also to cause Minor to escape (still laughing at the fact that Ravi called the dog ‘Minor’). As much as I love fun, easy-going Ravi, I loved seeing him getting serious and telling it how it is to Major. Rather than being angry for nearly losing Minor, I believe Ravi was being angry at Major for what he was doing to himself.
I actually thought that Major’s storyline with drugs would drag on for a few more episodes so I was a bit surprised and slightly disappointed when he admitted to Liv that he needed help. I feel like it was a bit rushed, but it still fit within the emotional theme of the episode. Other than that, I’m glad that this time Liv wasn’t buried under the brain personality she ate. She was herself, just a lot more in touch with her feelings. Hearing her singing was amazing and a nice treat to fans. Too bad we didn’t get to listen to the whole song!
