Recap / I Zombie S 5 E 10 Night And The Zombie City

Go To

While dealing with her dad's past, Liv ingests the brains of a private eye to solve a murder.


  • Choosing Death: The fake janitor chooses to impale his face on a hook rather than be questioned.
  • Cliffhanger: At the end of the episode, Liv and Ravi are in Martin's basement, someone is coming, and they've just found Martin's army of Romero zombies behind a curtain.
  • Cowboy Cop: Liv on P.I. brain. She refuses to wait for a warrant to search Chisel's office. Then when Clive insists that she eat a brain tube before she works on the case any more, she goes off and investigates on her own anyway.

  • Deliberately Monochrome: A few scenes are totally black-and-white, and most of the episode after Liv eats Chisel's brain is heavily desaturated.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Peyton spends the episode in a drunken funk over having destroyed her career to fund Hi, Zombie!
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Clive explains a dimly lit room by how a bulb blew.
  • Noir Episode: Obviously.
  • Private Eye Monologue: Ravi makes sure nobody's around to see him, then delivers one as part of an autopsy report.
  • Spotting the Thread:
    • Major realizes something's off with the janitor as he has two key cards. "I only have one and I run the place."
    • Liv recognized Blaine ate Jane's brains as he's doing the same hand motions she did.

How well does it match the trope?
