iZombie Stars on Major's New [Spoiler], Clive's Undead Discovery and More

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Tuesday’s iZombie.

Turns out Clive’s circle of zombie friends is bigger than he thought.

During iZombie‘s Season 3 premiere on Tuesday, the detective’s visit to Fillmore Graves HQ led to a startling discovery: Wally, the little boy who used to live in his apartment building, is a member of the undead. But the happy reunion took a dark turn near the episode’s end when the child and his mother Anna were killed by zombie conspiracy nuts (who just so happened to be right).

Solving the murders becomes a season-long quest for Clive, but first, in next Tuesday’s episode, “you get to see how he met Wally and Anna, how he became so close with them,” Malcolm Goodwin previews. “Clive was pretty much like a father figure to Wally. There was potential for that relationship and that family environment becoming a permanent thing, but something stops it, and you get to see exactly what prevented that from happening.”

On a much lighter note, viewers will also get a glimpse into Clive’s “nerdy side [and] how he got into Game of Thrones and became a hardcore fan.”

Read on for scoop about Liv’s new frenemy, Major’s sketchy job and more.

ZOMBIE ISLAND | In preparation for Discovery Day, when humans find out about their brain-eating neighbors, Fillmore Graves is readying an island for the zombie population. But can CEO Vivian Stoll and her zombie mercenaries be trusted? And is Liv on board with this plan? “The idea of moving a whole lot of people to an island is an appealing idea, but obviously those things get corrupted very quickly,” star Rose McIver notes. “Liv is wise enough to know that a zombie army is not somebody you want on your bad side, so she’s not going to antagonize them. But she’s still trying to feel out…whether that’s something that could work.”

iZombie SpoilersMAJORLY SCREWED | The “Chaos Killer” label on Major’s coffee cup is just the beginning of his troubles. Being viewed as a murderer by Seattle’s citizens is “not something that Major is going to escape easily,” Robert Buckley says. “It’s not like a bad haircut people are going to forget about. A large amount of the population thinks he’s, in fact, a serial killer. And even if he’s not a killer, he’s someone who kidnapped people and destroyed families and homes. That is something that will impact every aspect of his life: his love life, his employment, as we see in the first episode. That is something that he will be struggling with a lot this season.”

UNDEAD JOB SECURITY | Major’s decision to enlist into Fillmore Graves’ zombie army after being unable to find a job will eventually cause “an impasse” between him and his friends. “It’s going to pose some interesting questions for everyone in the group,” Buckley shares. “It is a main component of Major’s arc this year: Fillmore Graves, the people he meets and is friends with, and the relationships he forms.” Adds McIver: “We don’t really know quite how pure [Fillmore Graves’] intentions may or may not be. [Liv is] still feeling that out, so she’s very wary, knowing that Major is buying into it.”

    I miss this so much!!

  2. Alichat says:

    I can’t decide if Vivian Stoll had Wally and his mother killed as a way to galvanize Clive or if it really was some zombie hating murderers.

    • Nathan says:

      The way she acted looked like she didn’t know

      • Alichat says:

        Yeah….but that could have been an act for everyone there at the office.

        • T.W.S.S. says:

          I can see it being revealed down the line that she was behind it. But I am loving Vivian. She had me at, “you should really tan and dye. We’re trying to keep a secret here.”

    • Rylie says:

      That was my first thought as soon as I realized who was killed. It’d be pretty lame if it was her though because that’s pretty obvious.

      • Alichat says:

        True….the more I thought about it last night, the more it seemed too obvious. But I was just trying to think of who would know this family were zombies? How would they know? Also I find it odd that this corporation of zombies, which is so meticulous with covering their tracks (as she said, they think of everything), somehow missed the security guard who survived the melee. How’d they miss that guy?

        • Rylie says:

          Hmm ya and Liv was blaming the guy going on radio with that conspiracy theory guy as the one who got the family killed. Seems like a big setup for something. Sidenote: Can zombies eat other zombies brains?

    Welcome back iZombie!!

  4. Rylie says:

    I really can’t tell if Blaine is faking the amnesia or not. Otherwise it kind of felt like a filler episode? If that makes sense. So happy it’s finally back though!

    • Sam says:

      I think it’s just laying the ground work for the season. The finale was so explosive and intense they needed to slow it down and cover what’s going to happen next.

  5. Who knew Peyton was so “easy “, and i hope Liv eats a Betty Crocker brain soon cause somebody’s gonna need to bake a cake for Ravi’s pitty party! Im glad Clive is in the loop- but he’s already wishing he didn’t know. And Major is just one stupid choice after another. And Vivian is just evil, she makes MaxRager look like a perv.

  6. DebG says:

    I Love that the show is back. I wish that they had let us see the past episodes On Demand or had a marathon though, I was a little confused at points.

  7. Drew says:

    I love this show, but there’s exactly one thing that bothers me: why is it that only Liv and Major ever suffer “zombie brain”, where they take on the characteristics of the most recent brain they ate? Blaine never suffered it, the random zombies we’ve encountered never suffered it, hell, I can’t even remember Drake suffering it.
    .
    The show has made such a big deal of Liv sometimes being detrimentally impacted by zombie brain, and it’s often played for laughs, which I enjoy, but I don’t get why it’s not universally portrayed. Also, you’d think having an entire campus of zombies at Graves where moods and behaviors can change based on the most recent meal might be its own sort of chaos. I hope we get to see that or that it’s even commented on.
