Liv Moore has a new beau! In “Eat a Knievel,” the next episode of iZombie, Liv and Fillmore-Graves employee Justin will eat in for their second date. CBR can exclusively unveil a new clip from the episode, which finds Justin partaking in a bit of daredevil brain with her.
The clip opens with Liv inviting Justin inside for a bite. As she leads him into her apartment, she explains that she and her other zombie boyfriends often experienced disparate brains together. For instance, if she was on nymphomaniac brain, he was on gay brain; if she was a pathological liar, he was a hypochondriac. (Though, of course, she neglects to mention how her relationships with her former zombie lovers ended.) As such, she wants to try something new: sharing the same brain.
Fortunately for Liv, Justin is willing to give the experience a try, even though he seems a bit hesitant at first. Immediately after Justin takes a bite, she tells him that she plans to take the night to “the next level” — and then asks where they can get their hands on some SuperMax.
iZombie has been sowing the seeds of their romance since Justin was introduced earlier in Season 3. They realized their chemistry in “Dirt Nap Time,” last week’s episode, where Justin asked Major’s permission to date Liv. Shortly thereafter, Justin joined Liv on a stakeout/first date at the Scratching Post, Don E.’s zombie speakeasy. Inspired by her teacher brain, she confirmed that Justin was still into her with a note passed to him by Major, and it looks as though they’ll continue their relationship into “Eat a Knievel.”
According to the episode synopsis for “Eat a Knievel,”
Liv shares the brain of a former daredevil with her new boyfriend, and the experience brings them closer. Blaine is back to his old ways. Meanwhile, Ravi makes progress in his new research. Finally, a discovery is made that could put Major in grave danger.
