Review


Another good episode of iZombie, which left a lot to look forward to. It is also nice to see The Killing’s Bex Taylor-Klaus, or Bullet, get some more roles. Sebastian’s makeup was a little wacky, but his death resulted in a big revelation for Peyton. Good moments. The episode deserves a 7 out of 10.
