Recap / I Zombie S 3 E 5 Spanking The Zombie

Go To

Liv eats the brain of a dominatrix in an attempt to solve her two-week-old murder, while Major goes on his first mission with Fillmore-Graves.


  • Air Guitar: Tanner and Don E. play an extended air guitar duet while on Lucky U.
  • Blackmail: Johnny Frost is being blackmailed by the murderer.
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: Liv and Clive. Thanks to the brain she's on, Liv gets to be the bad cop for once.
  • Relationship Reset Button: It hasn't happened yet, but Liv and Major discuss the fact that this is coming after he takes the cure.
  • Safe Word:
    • Johnny Frost's is "climate change."
    • When Liv and Ravi are walking in the park pretending to be a couple, Ravi spits out a series of random words ("Zucchini. Fiddlesticks. Mollycoddle.") in the hope that one of them turns out to be his safe word.
  • Shout-Out: Major's mission is to rescue some hostages from Qumarian separatists, continuing the Running Gag that all the Fillmore-Graves missions happen in fictional countries from The West Wing.
  • Undercover as Lovers: Liv and Ravi do a brief version as part of the plan to catch Johnny Frost's blackmailer.
  • Unfortunate Names: Major asks Liv to rename him something a little less silly than "Major Lilywhite" after he loses his memory. She suggests "Gern Blanston."
  • Wall Jump: Major pulls one off during the mission, while under the influence of SuperMax.
