iZombie S04E13 "And He Shall Be a Good Man" Recap


Ravi sees on the news that Congress has voted to stop shipping all brain supplies into New Seattle. Ravi proceeds to call Peyton and leave her a voicemail saying she shouldn't come back since it's safer to stay out of New Seattle. He is about to say he loves her on the voicemail when he's interrupted by a knock at the door from one of Liv's coyotes. She tells Ravi that Liv has turned herself in and she's set to be executed with Levon. After Ravi brings Jordan some food, Peyton emerges, having returned to New Seattle and heard his voicemail. Ravi calls Clive to let him know about Liv, right as Clive was preparing to have sex with Dale for the first time, having decided to let her turn him into a zombie. She proposes that they wait till marriage and Clive sets out running when he finds out about Liv.

Levon and Liv are both tortured to try to get the names of the other people that have worked on the Underground with her but both of them refuse to give anyone up. Liv is permitted a visit from Ravi, Peyton, and Clive, and is able to tell them secretly where to find Levon's finished documentary on their operations. The documentary is released online and begins to go viral in New Seattle. She is a hero to the people who are understanding of her actions.

Jordan tells Chase where Major has been staying but it's revealed that she did this at his request as a way to distract Fillmore-Graves while Major helps the remaining Underground members to try to find a way to save Liv. They begin forming a plan to disrupt the public execution at the park, prompting Chase to decide to move up the execution from noon to nine in the morning and to do it at a Fillmore-Graves warehouse instead. Jordan secretly calls Major to let him know about the change in plans.

Blaine and Angus get a tip about a weakly guarded exit from the city that is their best chance to escape into the outer world and infect the rest of the world. Blaine helps Angus film a video message to rally his followers of where to meet and when. They have a falling out when Blaine tries to convince Angus to stay behind out of the violence and that he was the one that orchestrated the snowing brains. Angus rides off towards the wall on a horse with his hoards of followers.

When the Underground finds out about the change in execution plans, Peyton breaks into a TV studio with Ravi and makes an announcement on live television to inform everyone of where and when the new execution will be happening and to come out and help stop it if they agree with what Liv stands for. All the supporters head to the warehouse and through their combined efforts and Major using his zombie strength they're able to break the door open and go running in, unfortunately too late to save Levon before he is executed.

In the commotion, Major attacks Chase who is going for a gun to try to kill Liv. In the process, he puts himself on the guillotine platform and Liv pulls the lever, killing him. Major steps up to be the new commander of Fillmore-Graves when they get the news that Gate 6 has been stormed by Angus and his followers. The zombies trying to escape are stopped and killed, including Angus, leaving Blaine saddened.

Ravi tells Liv about Isobel's brain and how if she eats it she can be human again. Liv declares she wants to retire as Renegade because she has become disillusioned by the death of Levon. When Liv is at the station, she is preparing to eat Isobel's brain but is interrupted by their needing to go upstairs to witness Clive and Dale get married. Liv is emotionally moved by the ceremony and decides to give Dale the brain so that she can be human again and have children with Clive.

Major summons Blaine to the Fillmore-Graves headquarters and tells him to continue to bring brains into the city illegally and will have the backing of their group to help him achieve these goals so that no one will starve. Major has also told Liv that she is free to be Renegade and won't have to worry about Fillmore-Graves coming after her or any of her operatives. Though she had intended to retire, Ravi and Peyton bring her out to her apartment lobby where she is met with a mixed crowd of zombies and humans that cheer for her. Thus, she decides to continue her work as Renegade.

iZombie will return to the CW for a fifth and final season.

iZombie S04E12 "You've Got to Hide Your Liv Away" Recap


Filmore Graves announces that they will execute Curtis Lim, one of Liv's coyotes, if Renegade doesn't turn themselves in. Ravi and Levon make Liv promise not to turn herself in.

Captain Hobbs visits Major claiming Chase needs to be overthrown and Major can take over as the new leader of Filmore Graves but then Hobbs brings secretly recorded audio of the conversation to Chase to make it look like Major is the one scheming against him.

Liv decides to turn herself in but Major catches her before she leaves the house and makes amends with her. He then injects her with a sedative to kidnap her and bring her to Oregon so she will be safe until after the execution of Curtis Lim.

A popular social media star zombie known as White Girl was murdered but Liv isn't around to feed on her brains to help Cliv solve the case. Ravi is forced to tell Clive about how Liv is working as Renegade and Major has now kidnapped her to keep her safe (which he found out by talking to Jordan).

Blaine determines that the government is cutting off the brain supply which means that either humans will kill the zombies in New Seattle to survive, or the zombies will starve after killing all the humans and then the government will send a missile to wipe them all out, since it's been found out that the government has evacuated everyone in a 30-mile radius around New Seattle. Blaine wants Angus to move forward with his prophecy/plan to send zombies outside of the wall to start infecting more humans so that half the world will be zombies and the other half will be food.

Major has brought Liv to a cozy home and the pair have fed on brains that were from an old married couple that were married for many decades. They later find the couple that lived in the house locked downstairs in the basement. A note they left states that Filmore Graves stopped sending brain tubes and they were afraid that they would hurt someone. They had planned for the husband to shoot the wife and then himself but he couldn't bring himself to do it because he didn't want to live without her, even for a second. Instead, they locked themselves up and have now reverted to a more primal zombie state.

Since Liv isn't around to help Clive with the case he is forced to feed on the brain of White Girl. As a result, he becomes sassy, flamboyant, and vain. They find out that White Girl had paid $14 million to on a cure from being a zombie. They find out that Angus/Brother Love had spoken out against her to all of his followers for wanting a cure. When Angus is brought in for questioning, one of his followers confesses to the murder so he will be freed but the follower is later set free by a zombie officer that is secretly helping Angus' church.

The couple whose brains Liv and Major fed on are revealed to have a twist in their relationship. The wife had grown annoyed of her husband until she decided to crash their car to put herself out of her misery, killing them both. Liv goes from being a loving housewife to locking Major in with the two rabid zombies. Of course he is safe from being fed on but Liv leaves him though she does come back in time to catch Russ threatening to kill him if he doesn't give up the feeding tubes Liv has left for him. She kills Russ before he can kill Major and leaves him locked up with the rabid wife since Russ had shot the rabid husband dead.

Ravi feeds on a brain tube after the church follower confesses to killing White Girl. He proceeds to conduct an experiment on Isobel's brain in the hopes of finding a chemical that can be used to manufacture a vaccine. During the experiment, he ends up giving samples of the brain to a normal rat he has injected with the zombie virus and a zombie rat.

Clive finds out that Dale broke up with him because she overheard what he said about wanting children. He breaks up with his new girlfriend and gets back together with Dale, insisting that being with her is more important than having children and proposes to her. She accepts.

Liv hitchhikes back to New Seattle and sends one of her coyotes to go let Major out of the basement. She is overjoyed to find that Curtis is free but shocked to find out that Levon has falsely confessed to being Renegade in order to make this happen.

Blaine orchestrates a false sign to encourage Angus to go through with his plan to send zombies out into the world to infect more of the general population. Blaine orchestrates this by having some of his minions put frozen brains into a woodchopper to make his father think it's snowing brains.

Liv turns herself in to Filmore Graves and Levon is set to be released until he attacks Chase. Now both of them are set to be executed with the zombie guillotine.

Ravi returns to find both rats are in their normal state, meaning that what's left of Isobel's brain is a zombie cure.
