Review: 'iZombie' Season 5 Episode 9 "The Fresh Princess"
"The Fresh Princess"
Review by Jim Bennett
Ok, so this weeks episode started kinda pedestrian; your standard death of a pageant winner who’s been in a coma for 20 years. So Liv gets to go all 90’s, use terrible 90s slang and constantly talk like shes giving a winning speech... but underneath there’s so much more going on.
Lots of things come to light in this episode, the Dead Enders ultimate plan, the truth behind Beanpole Bob, and the chance that the cure might still be possible without dying children's brains. Typically, for every answer we get lots of new questions. Who’s side is Liv on? What will happen to Seattle if the general's daughter isn’t found? Ultimately, is it possible for humans and zombies to truly live side by side?
This episode was a real ensemble, not focusing on any one character but also showing how great the group is as a whole, and how much they’re there for each other.
Peyton and Ravi haven't had a lot of screen time together this series, so it was nice to see them go all Scooby Doo, while trying to track down the tainted Utopium.
Liv and Major's relationship has truly evolved into something more than what it's ever been before, with both doing everything they can to help each other. Not through some kind of duty they feel they have to each other, but because they genuinely care for each other. We’re very close to the end of their story, so it's great to see everyone at their best. I’m gonna miss this bunch of people.
4 episodes remain. Am I a fool to hope for a happy ever after? I guess we’ll find out really soon!
