Review


An excellent episode of iZombie, which focused more on the main story and less on side stories. Things seem to be getting closer and closer to a conclusion. One must wonder, whether or not Lowell is seriously dead considering Julien was seemingly invincible to bullets. A good episode, which deserves a 7.5 out of 10.
