Recap / I Zombie S 2 E 2 Zombie Bro

Go To

Liv eats the brain of a murdered, hard-partying fraternity brother; Ravi asks Major to come with him as he searches desperately for the cure; Blaine meets with a mysterious person from his past.

  • Batman Gambit: Blaine starts a gang war by recruiting drug dealers (through a patsy) who get killed by the local criminal kingpin. Except these drug dealers were rich upper-class white guys, meaning that there will be the public will to crack down, instead of the usual apathetic reaction to gang wars.

  • Being Watched: Major throwing Liv's phone into traffic is this excuse.
  • Body Horror: All of the Utopium dealers that were killed had their teeth and fingernails pulled out.
  • Can't Get Away with Nuthin': Ravi reacts like a victim of this trope when he buys utopium and the dealer shows up in the morgue the next day. Liv is unimpressed.
    Ravi: I buy drugs one time, purely for research purposes, and this is what happens. How bad must my karma be?
    Liv: Ever think it was his karma?
  • Cassandra Truth: Unfortunately, Liv didn't understand Major's slurred statement about "they're always watching", because he was stoned out of his mind on Utopium.
  • Continuity Nod: While Ravi wonders how hard it is to score drugs in a club, he finds it odd that Major could easily buy a grenade out of a car trunk.
  • Didn't See That Coming: Liv has this reaction when it turns out the people who rented the costume the killer wore are furries who got...recreational with it.

  • Do I Really Sound Like That?: Ravi plays back his logs from when he was high on Utopium and he's embarrassed.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Played for Laughs when Liv does it the frat boy way: shotgunning beers. It's played straight when Speedy is in a hotel room trying to hide from Mr. Boss.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: In-Universe, the victim went to a drunk driving lecture...and told the kids HOW to drive drunk. He got yelled at by the Dean as well as the other Chad Wolcoff.
  • Eureka Moment: Liv and Clive have one about who killed the victim during a game of Do, Date or Delete.
  • Face Doodling: Liv finds Ravi napping and writes FART on his head as well as put makeup and glitter on his face.
  • Frat Bro: The victim of the week. Liv becomes this when she eats his brains.
  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: What Liv is at the frat party.

  • Higher Understanding Through Drugs: Ravi and Major both try Utopium, with Ravi taking it so he understands how it works. It leaves Ravi in one hell of a high by dancing shirtless at a club while Major ends up puking his guts out in the bathroom.
  • Improvised Clothes: Liv and Gilda go to a frat party in police tape and a garbage bag respectively.
  • It Never Gets Any Easier: A paramedic tells something like this to Ravi when he brings in the body of the dealer that sold Ravi and Major Utopium.
  • The Mob Boss Is Scarier: Speedy, one of Blaine's dealers, is a drunken wreck when he hears of the Utopium dealers having been killed by Mr. Boss.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Sonny, the killer of the week, learns he killed the wrong person and is in tears. Major also has this reaction from killing Tim Addis and starts getting into Utopium.
  • Name's the Same: Chad Wolcoff, the victim of the week, a hard partying frat boy, has the same name as a former drunk driver who gives talks at schools.
  • Never Gets Drunk: Liv, being a zombie, is able to knock back drink after drink.
  • Oh, Crap!: Floyd Baracus, the DA Blaine talks to tells his secretary to leave when he recognizes Blaine in the waiting room, especially since he's one of Blaine's clients. Speedy also has this when he's cornered by Mr. Boss's goons.
  • Please Don't Leave Me: While coming down from his Utopium high in the bathroom, Major asks Liv to stay with him, which she does.
  • Prank Date: The victim of the week was the winner of the frat "Dog Fights" where he brought in the ugliest girl as his date.
  • Special Effects Failure: The cup Liv flips at the frat party (flip cup, bro!) is clearly weighted to land right-side up.


How well does it match the trope?
