Recap / I Zombie S 4 E 6 My Really Fair Lady

Go To

For once, there hasn't been a murder in Seattle. Instead, Liv focuses on rebuilding Mama Leone's underground railroad while on a musical theatre brain. Ravi has his monthly urge for brains and eats the brain of a heroin addict to help Peyton find a lost dog. The Zombie Church finds Blaine's restaurant and have a sit-in.

Tropes

  • Always Murder: Averted. No one is murdered the entire week, and the brains eaten are just leftover from a bus crash.
  • Advertisement:
  • Bad "Bad Acting": Liv has to fake an American accent while pretending to be a New Zealander. Rose McIver is from New Zealand and is more then capable of doing an American accent
  • Bait-and-Switch:
    • The opening seems to be the typical "set up the victim before death" bit... until it turns out it's a flashback as Bloom's character was one of the victims of the bus crash of the previous week.
    • Instead of just bursting into song constantly, Liv on theater brain means she's incredibly intense and pretentious.
  • Big Damn Kiss: Ravi and Peyton finally share one.
  • Brick Joke: Major originally believes that Ravi stole one of his uniforms. Later, we see that Liv actually stole it as part of getting the smuggled humans out of the shipping compartment.
  • The Caper: Liv pulls one to rescue the smuggled humans out of the city.
  • How's Your British Accent?: At last, Rose McIver gets to use her natural New Zealand voice for the scene of Liv distracting security.

  • Internal Reveal: Blaine has an epic Oh, Crap! look when he sees Angus waiting with his "flock" in the diner and realizes at last his dad is freed and leading a cult.
  • Out of Focus: Clyde is relegated to a C-plot in this episode.
  • Shout-Out
    • The episode title is a reference to My Fair Lady.
    • Although not mentioned by name, the victim was putting on a version of RENT with the zombie virus instead of AIDS.
    • Clyde said he learned how to be a cop by watching L.A. Confidential. When Melissa doesn't recognise the reference, he feels old.
    • The security guard at the shipping company is a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings movies.
  • Special Guest: Rachel Bloom as the Victim of the Week.
  • "Shut Up" Kiss: Of a sort. Liv uses one on the security guard to delay him from answering the phone.
  • The Unreveal: We never find out exactly where the dog was hidden.
