PlotEdit

Liv (Rose McIver) and Ravi (Rahul Kohli) are in need of help and find an unlikely ally in Blaine (David Anders). Detective Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin) and Dale Bozzio (guest star Jessica Harmon) pursue a new lead on an old case. Meanwhile, when Major (Robert Buckley) finds himself in a world of trouble, sleazebag Brant Stone (guest star Ken Marino) comes to his rescue. Vaughn’s (guest star Steven Weber) evil side reaches a whole new level of mean.

Recap Edit

Major is arrested after the tip-off to being the Chaos Killer. Liv tries to help out Major to supply him with brains before he turns with 48 hours and becomes a zombie. Agent Bozzio and Clive attempt to link Major with other crimes after another witness comes forward to reveal that he sold Major weapons used in the deli massacre months earlier. During the interrogation, Major found out Drake was dating Liv. Vaughn sent sleazy lawyer Brant Stone to Major and the lawyer keep insisting that without any bodies they cannot do anything.

When Liv visits Major, Major tells her he is not the Chaos killer and sends her to talk to Ravi.

Ravi is finally forced to tell Liv the truth about Vaughn blackmailing Major into being his zombie-killer. He revealed that everyone he supposedly killed was alive but frozen. They come out with a plan to release the frozen zombies so when they come out alive and walking for the public's eyes.. The police had to drop the case on Major.

Since Major did not tell anyone where was the frozen zombies, Ravi visited Major and tried to get him to tell the location by asking about how to pass a frozen zombie game level. But when they head to the warehouse where Major is keeping his sedated victims, they are gone... having been taken away by Vaughn's henchmen. Vaughn also orders to kill Major and Liv.

Meanwhile, Blaine continues struggling with his memory loss despite skeptic views about whether his lost memories are real or fabricated.

When a nutritional bar that Liv concocted with brains fails to reach Major due to the lawyer's dog, Liv is finally forced to tell Babineaux the truth about who she is, and about Major's position to plead with him to get him released before he turns and Seattle turns into a start of a zombie apocalypse. Using a legal loophole, Babineaux has Major released on a technicality which puts him at odds with Bozzio who ends their professional and personal partnership.

Vaughn's henchman tried to kidnap Liv while she was on the phone with Ravi. When Ravi returns, he sees the henchman and believed that he was collecting a body. But when Ravi sees that Liv is missing and broken glasses on the floor, he realizes something is wrong and knocks out the henchman before he can close the door to his van. When the henchman came back to the morgue, Ravi had injected Liv with an EpiPen and she wakes up in time to block a tranquilizer gun with her hand. Liv faints. After Ravi succeeds in fighting off the henchman and dose him with his own tranquilizer gun, he is in shock as he only just realized the tranquilizer was set to overdose and it killed the guy. Liv tells him it was self defense to try to calm him. Liv eats the henchman's brain.

Back home, with Liv, Peyton, Ravi and Major, Liv has a vision of the frozen zombies including Drake.. walking around the glass containment.
