iZombie Boss Rob Thomas Gives Us 12 Things to Know After "Some Like It flaming Mess" – eonline
Damn you, Blaine DeBeers!
After final week’s emotional trauma with Major (Robert Buckley) believing he was approximately to lose his memory—not to mention outright those weeks of playing pretend and wooing Peyton (Aly Michalka)—the revelation that Blaine (David Anders) has been faking the memory loss this whole time stung particularly tough.
Ravi’s (Rahul Kohli) cure has always worked, save for a couple days at the beginning where memories start to fetch a bit hazy, but Blaine saw an opportunity to become a changed man, thereby preventing Ravi from using the cure on outright his zombie friends.
The reveal came only after Major had spent time making amends—writing letters to his friends (including one tear-stained one to Ravi) and even visiting his mother, who he hadn’t seen in the years since she came out as homosexual. And it was nearly in time for even Liv (Rose McIver) to be cured (and eat outright the ice cream), until Ravi discovered that outright the syringes had been stolen. Prime suspects include Blaine, for obvious reasons, and Don E. (Bryce Hodgson), who had a customer willing to hand over his trust fun in exchange for the cure.
As for Peyton, she’s obviously pissed, and pretty much done with Blaine forever, despite how glorious(ish) their brief relationship was.
And now, says executive producer Rob Thomas, Blaine’s not only back to his primitive villainous self, but he’s a villain with a broken heart.
We got on the phone with Thomas to find out everything we need to know after tonight’s enlightening episode:
1. Blaine truly cares approximately Peyton, and whether it weren’t for Major taking the cure, he could hold carried on for a while.
“[Blaine] knew that they would shortly figure out that the cure did not cause permanent memory loss,” Thomas says. “So he confesses to Peyton hoping that she does, as she said, care enough that she doesn’t even know whether it would matter to her whether he were lying. And it’s Peyton armed with what Ravi said to her, warning her that Don E said that Blaine was faking, and she’s sort of testing him there. And Blaine does confess and the one thing that I can say that I deem people should select Blaine at his word on is that he cares approximately Peyton. And I, in my heart of hearts, believe that he was, in fact, excited approximately this fresh life he was living as a non-criminal. I deem Blaine would hold been homosexual to be with Peyton and not be a criminal and he could hold gone on like that for a qualified bit of time.”
2. That scene at the conclude with Blaine making a batch of Ravi’s blue memory juice was meant to say the primitive Blaine is back.
“Once it becomes clear, once Peyton makes it clear that she tricked him and is not interested in him and is horrified by what he has done, I deem Blaine will revert to form,” Thomas says. “And that scene at the conclude when he’s making Ravi’s blue juice was effect there for a couple reasons. One, we’re going to hold fun with Blaine and blue juice. And two, it was there as an indicator that Blaine is going to travel back to his primitive ways. It’s everything Blaine always was, and brokenhearted.”
3. The blue juice is very considerable to the rest of the season.
“You’re gonna learn! It’s gonna be fun!” Thomas says of what precisely Blaine is going to execute with the juice. “We’re going to hold a lot of fun with blue juice. We probably talked approximately that blue juice brain as much as anything in the writers’ room in season three.”
4. Peyton will continue to hold doubts approximately the dominatrix case.
“At the conclude of the dominatrix case, the guy they bring in seems to just give up immediately, and we wanted that to strike people as a microscopic odd, and in this episode 306, it does strike Peyton as odd,” Thomas tells us. “And she is going to start pulling at some threads there and she’s going to become very suspicious, even though she’s supposed to be the prosecutor, she’s going to reach to not believe her own case. And as she starts pulling at some threads, she will discover fresh stuff. We didn’t want Peyton just to be there as an thing of male affection. We wanted to give Peyton her own storyline, her own involvement in the mythology, and that’s sort of what happens when she starts pulling back the layers of that case.”
5. Major’s dream of a future with Liv will not reach legal, at least not any time soon.
“When Major’s in Walla Walla, and he has a moment where he realizes wait a minute, I’m not losing my memory, it’s outright coming back to me, which means that the cure works, which means that Liv can select the cure, and we can live fortunately ever after. And so you know, he comes back through that door and he grabs Liv and he kisses her, and he is so excited that perhaps, possibly now, finally, he can hold the life that he was expecting outright the way back before Liv became a zombie, so you know, it’s shattering in this moment,” Thomas says. “Now they know that she’s still a zombie, she’s going to remain a zombie, and they’re right back to where they were final year. And they did give it a travel, and it didn’t work, and so you know, we’re not going to hold them try that again, so it’s a heartbreaking moment for Major who had gotten his hopes up.”
6. In fact, Major’s dream of being with Liv gets even sadder when you know that Liv’s heart wasn’t in the same residence.
“Liv, you know, believing that she was going to remain a zombie when they had their tryst always sort of had in intellect that it was one final fling,” Thomas explains. “He’s going to become human and become a fresh person who I don’t even know. She thought that when they slept together it was one final time for the qualified times and so I don’t deem her heart…she never became fully invested in that relationship moving forward.”
7. Natalie [Uma Voss] will return this season, particularly since Major gave her a dose of the cure.
…And that’s outright the info Thomas would give us approximately that.
8. We will not find out who stole the cure this season.
“In the next episode, Liv and Ravi are going to interview both Blaine and Don E., the two most likely suspects,” Thomas says. “And they can’t prove anything, and that mystery kind of hangs over the back half of the season, and the plot was to acknowledge that question in the season finale, but we ran out of space in the season finale, so it didn’t get it into the episode. So Liv and Ravi are going to perceive into it, but they won’t fetch an acknowledge for fairly some time.”
9. The cure is on hold, but for qualified reason.
“Scientifically, Ravi is going to sail in a fresh direction at the conclude of the season,” Thomas shares. “He’s going to hold an opinion for something else that could be done and he’s going to sail into a different direction. The truth is, I deem he’s always going to be trying to cure Liv and other zombies, but as most people probably realize, on a indicate called iZombie, by the time Liv gets a cure, hopefully we’re doing the emotional farewell episode. So I hope that we don’t find that cure anytime soon.”
10. Major is going to continue to be wretched.
“Major is now a human who works for a zombie military contractor, and that is a problem,” Thomas explains. “It’s the residence where he now feels at domestic. Like those are his people. Those are soldiers he’s gone into battle with. Those are people who don’t judge him for being accused of being the Chaos Killer. And so he does not want to leave them. He likes it there. But at some point, that will reach to a head.”
11. fresh cherish interests are coming.
“Several of our characters will fetch fresh cherish interests before the conclude of the season,” Thomas teases.
12. Two major mysteries will select focus over the rest of the season.
“Of course, who killed Wally’s family, that mystery hangs over everything, and then you know, the mountainous mystery introduced in 301, or really in the final episode of final season: Is Fillmore Graves to be trusted? And when humans start figuring out there are zombies among them, whose side is Liv going to be on? Those questions will outright be asked right up until the conclude of the season.”
