Added DiffLines:

* CuttingTheKnot: And cutting du Clarke's EvilGloating short. Major, trapped in a room filling up with anti-zombie gas, shoots through the big glass windows, conveniently shooting du Clarke in the hand (for funsies) and making it possible to smash his way out with a fire ax.


Added DiffLines:

* PrettyLittleHeadshots: When Liv shoots Drake, instead of spattering Clive with blood and brain and bits of bone, she just makes a little red hole in his forehead.

Added DiffLines:

* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Major does this to himself after the head of Fillmore Graves cavalries her way into their room.
--> '''Vivian:''' Vivian Stoll, Fillmore-Graves Enterprises.\\
'''Clive:''' Clive Babineaux, Seattle PD. This is Liv Moore, from the Medical Examiner's office.\\
'''Vivian:''' You're going to be a busy girl.\\
'''Major:''' Major Lilywhite. Personal trainer.


* KilledOffForReal: Drake and Rita are killed by headshots, and Vaughn gets his brain eaten, so the zombie virus shouldn't be able to bring them back.

to:

* KilledOffForReal: Drake and Rita are killed by headshots, headshots (as is Chief, in the B plot), and Vaughn gets his brain eaten, so the zombie virus shouldn't be able to bring them back.


* ItsAllAboutMe: Vaughn truly outdoes himself when he threatens to let the zombies kill Rita and Major.
-->'''Rita''': Did you ever care about me?
-->'''Vaughn''': Do you hear yourself? (Going berserk) DO YOU HEAR YOURSELF!?! Making this moment about you! Cause I'm the one who stands to lose a billion dollars tonight! 100 employees dead! One dead Rob Thomas! You think Twitter is going to be kind tonight?!



* TheReveal: Filmore Graves are actually zombies.




to:

* WhamShot: Liv finding Vivian feasting on the brain of Rob Thomas, revealing she's been a zombie all along.

Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: Blaine seems to cement this when he saves Payton. Ravi is still not at all comfortable with this.


Added DiffLines:

* OneManArmy: Blaine and Ravi go to save Payton from Mr. Boss' {{Mook}}s. It winds up with Blaine just putting on night vision goggles and shooting every one of them dead by himself.


* CreatorCameo: A rather odd aversion happens in this episode. When the actors are listed in the opening credits, they include the name "Rob Thomas", so one might expect to co-creator and co-showrunner of the series to appear in the episode... but no, it turns out to be the ''[[NamesTheSame other]]'' Music/RobThomas, the frontman of Music/MatchboxTwenty. Hokes are made at the expense of both of them, culminating in Thomas getting killed by zombies and the mercenaries who ate his brain singing "Unwell".

Added DiffLines:

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Vaughn introducing "the one, the only, Music/RobThomas!" in an episode of a show created by a different Rob Thomas.


Liv, Major and Clive crash a Max Rager party to find and save Drake and the other unfrozen zombies. Bossís henchmen kidnap Peyton and it is up to Blaine and Ravi to rescue her, Blaine does most of the rescuing.

Things get out of hand at the party when some employees take tainted Utopium and Super Max (Live to the Max! Super Maaax!), turn into raging zombies and start killing everyone, including singer Rob Thomas. Major, Liv and Clive are trapped in a parking lot and surrounded by hungry zombies but are saved by Vivian Stoll, head of private army corporation Fillmore Graves and Max Ragerís new owner.

After making their way to the secret basement, zombie Rita gives them access to the holding cells. A distraught Liv has to kill a completely turned Drake but she and Clive get the other zombies to (relative) safety. Vaughn du Clark, in full cackling villain mode, tries to kill Rita and Major (with poison gas! And an axe) but gets shot in the hand and when he tries to escape, Rita and a couple of Romeros eat him. Major shoots an enraged Rita in the head when she attacks Liv. Clive calls for police reinforcements but more Fillmore Graves mercenaries show up and want to take away any survivors.
