The CW has released an extended promo video for next week’s brand new episode of iZombie, which is appropriately titled “The Whopper.” If the footage gives you the impression that this episode will have all of the excitement of a season finale, you are actually onto something. Had The CW not ordered an extra six episodes to cap Season Two, which it thankfully did, this would have served as the season finale.
From the opening moments of the trailer, we see what appears to be Major and Ravi finally uncovering the tainted Utopium, which regular viewers of the show know to be a vital component in concocting a cure for the zombie virus. While we can hope for the best, it’s hard to picture a definitive cure being developed anytime soon. After all, if Liv gets cured, the entire premise for the show will be thrown out the window and this turns into a pure procedural.
After Major’s life hit several speed bumps in last night’s episode, “Physician, Heal Thy Selfie,” it looks as though things will only get worse for him next week. Nothing good can come from being abducted by Blaine, and it will be most interesting to see these two men who certainly have no love loss for each other in the same room. Let’s just hope the cops don’t find out that Major is the “Chao$ Killer.”
For more details, be sure to check out the official synopsis below:
Liv (Rose McIver) and Detective Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) investigate the murder of Corey “Big Fish” Carp, who they learn got his nickname not because of his last name but because he was a well-known pathological liar. Ravi (Rahul Kohli) makes an unsettling discovery and Blaine (David Anders) is reunited with someone from his past. Meanwhile, Major (Robert Buckley) finds himself in a precarious situation. Michael Fields directed the episode written by Rob Thomas (#213). Original airdate 2/16/16.
iZombie airs Tuesday nights at 9:00 pm EST on The CW.
