Liv and Let Clive is the fourth episode of Season 1. It aired on April 7, 2015.
When Clive identifies a John Doe in the morgue as one of his former criminal contacts from his days on the vice squad, Liv is surprised that Clive is so quick to refuse her help in solving the murder. Liv and Ravi investigate on their own which puts them in a precarious situation. Liv’s problems continue to mount when Major begins searching for a roommate and she believes he’s considering a cute co-ed.
The episode opens with Blaine and the woman he turned in bed together; she is still buying brains from him. They get spray tans together. Liv goes to Major’s house to apologize for coming on to him and runs into his new girlfriend, Corrine.
At the morgue, Ravi is working on a body as Liv tells him what occurred earlier. Liv’s brother shows up at the morgue he’s going to be staying with her for a bit, moments later Liv is eating her brains with hot sauce. Enter Clive who recognizes the corpse, he immediately tells Liv to stay away from this case. Liv has her first vision: Clive, from back in his Vice days, beating up Ray for snitching and threatening to beat up Sammy too when Sammy tries to defend Ray. She tells Ravi, shocked, but he tells her to trust Clive, and seems more interested in the fact that Clive used to have a mustache.
Meanwhile, Blaine meets another zombie and we see the heart of the ‘brains’ operation at a meat shop. Blaine has turned a chef who makes brain meals.
Liv goes to check out vice. She asks Clive's former partner about Sammy Wong who speaks ill of Clive and tells her he was suspended from vice. This piques Liv’s curiosity so she tells Ravi about it.
They find themselves at Hong Kong Video, and Liv fails miserably to go undercover but Ravi comes to the rescue and then decides to look at porn vids during which Liv has another vision of someone else being beaten for supposedly being the snitch and AJ (the main Cobra) jokingly telling Clive "And you thought it was Ray" who appears to be his best friend. Realizing they are in the Blue Cobra's headquarters, she tells Ravi they have to leave. On their way out, they run into AJ and company, who are very suspicious as they leave. Afterwards, they see Clive show up at the shop and Liv believes Clive is still helping the gang. Cut to Liv and her brother Evan at their apartment. Liv is extremely paranoid.
At Liv’s apartment, Clive confronts her and reveals Sammy was in Federal Witness Protection and had only come back to visit his dying mother.
Meanwhile, Major shows up at the morgue. He and Ravi have a moment filled with awkwardness. However, as Major is there about the apartment, they bond talking about Diablo 3. They are going to move in together Liv walks in on them and tells Ravi about Clive showing up at her house, they’re suspicious about Clive’s story and witness protection. Ravi has found out that AJ's father used to be head of the Blue Cobras but was put away on conspiracy charges 5 months previous-just after the FBI moved Sammy to Albuquerque as part of witness protection. This means her previous vision must have happened before Sammy entered witness protection. Liv is going to attach a tracking device to Clive’s car; however a man from the Cobra place sees her. While running away, Liv has a vision from just before Sammy's death, in which he tells AJ and the others that Ray is a cop. Liv then discovers that Sammy's last vision has given her a knowledge of kung fu.
Liv tells Clive that he saw the moment Sammy was killed and that Sammy told AJ about Ray being a cop. Clive calls the police for backup to go and save Ray who is on his way back from Hong Kong with a shipment of Utopiam (still working undercover as a Cobra). He tells Liv to go home. Blaine is trying out new recipes, and as he is aware his minions are planning on scamming him, he kills them. Back to Liv at home she calls Clive they caught AJ’s crew at the airport, she hears someone in her apartment.It's AJ. He thinks that she is a cop working with Ray. He punches her in the face and attacks her. Liv proceeds to kick his ass with kung fu.
AJ picks up a piece of glass as brother comes home she goes “full on” zombie and beats AJ she is able to pull back last second. Liv apologizes to Clive who is obviously hurt–in a serious moment Clive explains going undercover–he was never really suspended he was so deep undercover no one would work with him. Liv and Clive make up. Ravi moves into Major’s as Liv and he give friendship a try. Ravi explains to Liv that Major took Liv’s insistence that he move in (blocking Corinne from moving in) as a signal that she isn't ready to let him go.
