Episode Title: Looking for Mr. Goodbrain, part 1
Original Air Date: June 20, 2017
Episode Number: 3×12
When Liv consumes the brains of someone from Ravi’s past, not only does it have her wanting to sleep with every guy in Seattle, she also begins having some very intimate visions of Ravi. Meanwhile, Major is faced with a huge decision.
Goddamit, show! You kill another character that I absolutely like this season?? The first one was Vivian (although I really want her to be alive and just faked her death) and now they kill off Natalie, too? Not cool. Not cool at all. I have liked Natalie ever since her first appearance on the show and I was so happy that she’s back in this episode and is happy and living her life. And of course that goes to shit when Harley’s stupid ass bombs the zombie party killing everyone (including Natalie) except Justin and Major. RIP, Natalie. You deserved better than this. 😪
I was very confused about Liv’s behavior throughout the episode, but of course it’s brain-related. Who knew Katty was quite a manizer (or whatever the opposite is of a womanizer)? Was Ravi just another notch on her belt? I’m thinking yes, yes he was. I was not surprised that Liv slept with Chase because the attraction was definitely there (mostly from him) when they met for the first time. I admit it was hot, but I felt sorry for Justin. He doesn’t deserve to be cheated on, no matter what brains Liv was on. She should be able to control the brains she’s on and not let it dictate between right/wrong.
The two men that Liv’s involved with are now screwed. Major losing Natalie and losing his job…I mean, the guy can’t catch a break, it seems. Poor Major. And of course, Justin gets cheated on. I wonder if Liv will come clean with him or she’ll keep this a secret. Not cool, Liv!
The season-long mysteries have gotten somewhat confusing, but I think I’m following most of the twists and turns. The reveal that Katty’s investigation into the origin of the Aleutian flu virus is tracked back to the daughter of Fillmore-Graves’ publicist (is that her position in the company?) who just happens to be friends with Tatum who’s the daughter of Weckler, the guy who killed the dominatrix and who was then probably killed by Baracus putting a hit on him. Whaaaaaat?
And not to mention the role that Fillmore-Graves is playing in all of this. I think that if you look closely, they are responsible for some of the events or people in this convoluted maze. For sure it was Chase who probably had the Tuttle-Reid family killed, he orchestrated Baracus’ assassination attempt, and he turned Harley into a zombie. Son of a bitch, he’s the reason Natalie is dead. And he’s probably the reason that Vivian is also dead. I want to see his comeuppance next episode. 😠
He most likely murdered Katty, too, judging from that napkin Liv saw on his bedside table. So Chase kills Katty because she was coming close to discovering the origins of zombie-ism? She was harmless and didn’t need to be killed because she is the last person in this world who would have believed that zombies existed. Damn you, Chase!
As for the other plots, Baracus offering Peyton a position to be his chief of staff is huge and Liv made some great points. Peyton can use her position to keep tabs on Baracus and even if he’s not guilty, then she can help him downplay this whole ‘zombies are real’ thing in the media.
Liv being disgusted about seeing Ravi having sex with Katty in her visions cracked me the hell up. That was priceless. I’m amused that Ravi finds this totally hilarious and is not embarrassed or shy about what she’s seeing, lol. Also, what the fuck was he saying during sex? Turnoffs? “Dead kittens. Winston Churchill eating fried chicken. Flatulent Jabba the Hut.” I think the more apt question is “Why was he saying these things during sex?” LOL.
The first woman they interrogated was a real piece of work with her being racist. I loved Ravi’s response: “So, by ‘whoosie-whatsit’ you mean turban. By ‘Muslim’ you mean Sikh. And by ‘like me’ you mean brown.” And Ravi’s reaction when she answered “like you” as to how the man she sat next to on the plane looked like was hilarious. Rahul played that scene so well.
I was laughing so hard at Clive being careful at not catching any kind of bioterror virus or whatever when they were in the interrogation room. He was standing so far from the desk that he might as well have been in the other room, lol.
Lastly, I thought it was a nice touch to have Rose not don the usual Liv look for most of this episode because Liv’s picture was plastered on that paper. I’m sure Rose loved not having to sit in hair and makeup for hours.
