Episode Title: Conspiracy Weary
Original Air Date: June 13, 2017
Episode Number: 3×11
Liv and Blaine come to the rescue of one of their own. They consume the brains of a conspiracy theorist and paranoia ensues. Meanwhile, as they continue to search for conspiracy theories that may or may not exist, Liv researches Major’s new friend. Finally, Ravi makes a surprising discovery of his own.
Dammit, Rachel! I should have known you were up to no good and can’t be trusted because you were too nice. Poor Ravi screwing himself and his friends over by confirming that zombies exist. Guess that’s one story where it’s too late to put the lid back on. What the hell are Fillmore-Graves going to do now? How about Mayor Baracus? How is he going to downplay this? I definitely do not want to be Ravi at this moment. Poor guy just can’t catch a break this season.
So my theory that Baracus was behind Roxanne’s death and Weckler’s death could be true. It boggles the mind that he would turn Weckler’s daughter into a zombie just so he can have leverage on Weckler. That is pretty low and I hope that he gets his due. This will definitely pit Liv’s team against Fillmore-Graves and I can’t wait how this all plays out.
I’m still waiting for Vivian to show up alive and put Chase in his place. I think Chase was the one who killed Wally and his family, he orchestrated that assassination attempt on Baracus to drum up support for him in the polls, he planted the gun used in said assassination attempt and for the Tuttle-Reid murders on Harley’s truck, and he’s probably the one who turned Harley into a zombie. The last one is a reach since Harley probably got scratched by accident during the ensuing fight.
Speaking of that fight, I thought that was probably the best action sequence that has been done on the show. I especially enjoyed Blaine crashing through the glass ceiling and attacking those zombie truthers. That was pretty badass. I know Liv is pretty much indestructible, but I still gasped when she got shot in the back by a freaking shotgun. Thankfully the guy wasn’t aiming for the head.
I enjoyed and was grossed out at the same time at the scene of Don E., Blaine, and Liv snacking on one of the guys’ brains. Also enjoyed the three of them talking about conspiracies throughout the episode as to Tupac being alive and living in Scottsdale as an informant for the feds, to Biggie’s twin shooting Tupac (and Biggie still being alive), to Tom Cruise being a zombie because he doesn’t look like he’s aged a day in his life.
Knew Shawna couldn’t be trusted. I still don’t believe her justification for putting her relationship with Major out there for public consumption. She should have asked for permission first and the fact that she didn’t, just signals that she has a hidden agenda and she probably just wants to profit from being associated with the Chaos Killer in some way. Good riddance.
