‘iZombie’ 1.04 Episode Recap and Review: Live and Let Clive


This week on Lifestyles of the Undead and Fabulous

Liv brings fancy apology coffee to Major just in time to learn that his current roommate is moving out and his current relationship with Corinne is moving right along. Despite the fact that they’ve only been seeing each other for two weeks, Liv is more than a little concerned that Corinne is angling to fill that roommate void.

Of course, Liv’s worries may stem more from this week’s John Doe, a former member of the Blue Cobras and victim of a violent gang-related murder. When Clive stops by for the latest intel, he recognizes the body as Sammy Wong. Clive wants them to stay away from this case, but Liv has already had a bit of a snack this evening. She flashes on a mustachioed Clive beating up a gang member named Ray and threatening Sammy, as well. The vision leads Liv to think that Clive might be a dirty cop.

Liv goes to talk to Clive’s old partner back in Vice. Her chat with Devore doesn’t exactly ease Liv’s mind. Devore isn’t a fan of Clive’s anymore and says that he got a little too close to his CIs, if you know what I mean.

According to Liv’s vision, Ray worked at Hong Kong video, so she and Ravi head out that way to check it out. Once inside, Liv flashes on a vision of the leader of the Blue Cobras, AJ, having someone tortured with wasabi. Liv comes out of it just in time to be confronted by AJ himself, who is definitely not buying her rather flimsy excuse for being in the store. She and Ravi back away quickly, but still catch a glimpse of Clive pulling up to the curb.

A bit later, Clive is waiting to talk to Liv back at her place. He still wants her off the case, and reveals that Sammy was in WitSec in another state, but had come back to visit his dying mom. Admirable, but a really, really bad idea, as it turns out.

At the precinct, Liv flashes on Sammy’s boot party. She hears him saying that Ray is a cop and realizes what’s been going on this whole time. Clive and Ray were deep undercover, and now Sammy has burned Ray. Liv gets the intel to Clive, who’s able to muster Vice to take down most of the Cobras. In fact, they only miss one. AJ shows up at Liv’s place, believing that she’s a cop, as well. Fortunately for Liv, Sammy’s paranoia isn’t the only thing she inherited from his brain. As she so aptly put it, she knows kung fu. Liv beats the living tar out of AJ and turns him over to Clive. Case solved and various crises averted!
