The CW has released an extended promo video for next week’s brand new episode of iZombie, “Abra Cadaver.” As the title suggests, illusion is a central theme of this episode, seeing as how Liv and Babineaux will be investigating the murder of a magician. Upon consuming said magician’s brains, Liv will apply her temporarily granted skills to the investigation. The trailer focuses very little on this aspect and instead chooses to go the route of showing how Major is now trying to acclimate to her brain food induced mood swings.
On that note, the trailer frames Liv and Major’s situation to be a bit more rosy than what may actually occur. According to the episode’s official synopsis, Major “continues to distance himself from Liv.” Considering matters have been all kinds of complicated for these characters in recent weeks, I guess we’ll just have to tune in to find out where things go next. The creative team has knocked it out of the part with the first six episodes this season, so I’m confident the seventh episode will be no different in terms of quality.
For even more details, check out the synopsis that I referred to earlier below:
IT’S ALL AN ILLUSION — Liv (Rose McIver) consumes the brains of a death-obsessed illusionist who was murdered in cold blood during a magicians’ convention in Seattle. As Liv and Detective Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) investigate the case, she uses her new skills to help narrow down the suspect pool. Meanwhile, Blaine (David Anders) gives Liv some interesting news, and Ravi (Rahul Kohli) makes a decision but things don’t end up going quite as planned. Lastly, Major (Robert Buckley) continues to distance himself from Liv. Viet Nguyen directed the episode written by Justin Halpern & Patrick Schumacker (#206).
iZombie airs Tuesday nights at 9:00 pm EST on The CW.
