iZombie returns to our screens and our hearts Monday night! Let’s take a moment to review Season Three and get ready a new chapter!
The season three finale set up a new world for season four where zombies now reside in the open. The discovery that Carey Gold, the leader of Fillmore-Graves, was responsible for the deaths of Wally and Vivian, plus the outbreak of Aleutian flu was an interesting twist. But Chase Graves killed her and then put zombie blood into the flu vaccine turning everyone who received it into the walking dead-including Clive’s girlfriend, Dale. Following the turn, Chase went on television to announce to the world the existence of zombies and there need for donated brains. The old idea of Zombie Island is forgotten- as they would be less of a target if they just made a bunch more that live among us.
Major is a zombie again and Ravi had Liv scratch him to test the new zombie vaccine. Of course, I am sure Liv and Clive will still be solving crimes as that has always been the best part of the show.
Here is what Rob Thomas (Executive Producer) had to say about this season:
“Oh my God, the whole thing! It’s going to be a radical change. Zombie-ism is out in the open, so it’s going to be the top news story in the world. Seattle just became, effectively, a nuclear power. In fact, each of the 10,000 zombies now living in Seattle is its own sort of nuclear threat, if he or she wanders out of the city and scratches someone. I’m really interested in playing the dynamic of humans and zombies trying to live side-by-side. It’s going to create all sorts of issues this coming season.
Liv and Clive are still going to be solving murders, but now they’ll be solving cases of murdered humans. Fillmore Graves will have their own detectives solving cases of murdered zombies. All of the detectives in the Seattle homicide division will have their own zombies helping them solve murder cases because they all understand the benefits of being able to use the memories of murder victims.
It’s all going to feel very different. It’s going to feel a lot like West Berlin — God, we’ve used a lot of analogies — [and] like every day, you’re in the middle of the Cuban missile crisis. There’s going to be politicians across the globe wanting to nuke Seattle. Essentially, Seattle is holding a half million humans hostage. If you want to kill the 10,000 zombies in Seattle, you have to kill half a million innocent humans, too.”- Rob Thomas TV Line Interview
