* RedHerring: The Twofold. Soon after Liv eats Scott's brain, she hears a voice, which turns out to be that of a little devil hallucinations, to distract on a packet of junkfood. So we're going into haha-funny-hallucinations, with only a little side-order of creepy when her detective friend sees her argue with a snack vendor. Nope - those are only distracting you from the ''real'' hallucinations.hallucinations, which are a) Johnny Frost appearing by her side (still comical) and b) her imagining patching things up with Major (with an utterly tear-jerking reveal afterwards).


* WhatHaveIBecome: When Liv finally opens up Scott E.'s phone, she finally sees how she looks like in Full-On Zombie Mode.

* BrickJoke: There's a news report about the astronaut who was mentioned a few episodes ago. [[BlackComedy He's gone missing]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: There are a couple of hints early on that "Johnny Frost" isn't really there. The most obvious one is his repeated misreporting of the weather. It's the same incorrect report every single time. There's also the scene where Liv requests his help climbing through a window and he refuses. His excuse is a rotator cuff injury, but in retrospect, it's actually because he wouldn't be able to touch her.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: TheEndingChangesEverything: Liv was hallucinating the Johnny that was hanging out with her ''and'' the Major she confessed to. Which ''doubly'' sucks since the '''real''' one barges in with bags of brains, telling her that zombies are real... and he's going to hunt them down.

Added DiffLines:

** Liv's hallucinations resemble those experienced by the protagonist of ''Series/{{Wonderfalls}}'', right down to their cryptic nature and the use of a gruff-sounding voice actor, and the fact they come from inanimate objects. The hallucination even has an "I told you so" moment similar to what Jaye in ''Wonderfalls'' occasionally experienced.
