So this is it, the last ever episode of iZombie and I’m not going to be able to talk about it without spoilers, so here is your only warning *SPOILERS AHEAD*
The title of this episode actually gives away the ending, there are a ton of twists and turns in this episode with people dying all over the place, Peyton is shot and ‘killed’ but then brought back, Major takes the cure on live tv and asks Lambert to kill him to prove the cure exists only for Ravi to switch it up and give the cure to Lambert who is then shot and killed, Blaine and Don E and pushed down the well that Blaine’s father is still at the bottom of, Liv is blown up but not really.
We do get a birth with Clive’s son finally being born, but am I the only person who thought the whole dual pregnancy with Michelle storyline was just thrown away with one line earlier in the series?? I thought that might continue but alas no.
Ok so my honest opinion of the finale and indeed the final season is this, I love this show i have done from the very beginning but this season has been the weakest by far from a story arc perspective, we have had some amazing individual episodes and as always the characters have been awesome, but this series felt like it dragged a lot only for the last episode to have so much in it it felt super rushed and i struggled to really feel connected to it. I think it would’ve been better had they split the episode in two and have the last two episodes be the finale, to really build the tension, for instance, Peyton was shot and killed! that would’ve been a great cliffhanger before the final episode but instead 5 mins later shes alive and a zombie, that doesn’t create a feeling of despair its just a plot device that’s thrown away.
That’s also kinda my feeling on this whole season, plot devices that are thrown away, the dual pregnancy, Livs father who had a metal plate in his head to protect his zombie brain but then shot in the soft part of his head 2 seconds later, the evil Dolly Durkins who seems to have just been let go and nothing bad happens to her, Blaine and Don E just being pushed down a well. This season deserved to go out on a high and while it was still great it felt like it went out with a whimper which is a real shame.
But I will not end this review on a down note, this show has given us some amazing characters, introduced us to some awesome actors and has always been fun and enjoyable and the finale did give us what we wanted in the end, Liv and Major together again looking after zombie kids on Zombie Island, Ravi and Peyton together succesfull and Clive happy with a family so it was really alls well that ends well………well….Blaines down the well, I get it!!!! 😉
I wouldn’t mind if they did a special one off one day, all the elements are still there but that’s just wishful thinking i guess, so all that’s left to say is thank you iZombie you were awesome and I may just start watching it all again from season 1!
