Review by Jim Bennett
So, another interesting episode this week. On the surface, just your usual murder case with Liv eating the victims brains to catch glimpses of what ultimately led to their death, but scratching the surface this episode began to connect a lot of dots…
Liv is on genius brain this week and owning it. It must be the joy of joys for any actor to be able to come in each week and essentially play a different character every time. With the death of a CEO of a tech company this week, the episode is more than just that, it's connected to something bigger.
There's something rotten about Filmore Graves,  and I don’t just mean the soldiers. A new mystery man is on the scene with connections to some of the less than savoury members of Major Lillywhite's team.
Blaine is back... yay!!! it feels like its been ages since we’ve seen him, but he’s here doing what Blaine does best, trying to be the smoothest zombie alive. This week he's interviewed for a magazine article, and who does he love to talk about more than himself??
Peyton and Ravi are trying to get their play "Hi Zombie" together, but it's proving difficult to tread the comedy line and show people that humans and zombies can co-exist.
Finally, at Renegade headquarters, a plot has been uncovered that could spell the end to Zombie kind and there may be a bigger issue than what they already know.

Conclusion

This weeks Ep had a lot going on. Lots of different individual parts, but all interlinked and building to the bigger over arching story.There were shocks and mysteries running through it too.
I genuinely don’t know where this show goes from here. We’re 4 Episodes in, with just 9 to go. Can they wrap this up in a satisfying way? My faith in this show says yes, but I don't know how. With the wall coming down with Zombies and Humans living in harmony? Somehow I don’t see it.
Stick with me and together we'll find out where this crazy train is taking us over the rest of the series.
