“iZombie” Season 5 Episode 11 “Killer Queen”: Liv Channels Her Inner RuPaul [PREVIEW]

In this week’s episode of The CW‘s iZombie, Liv (Rose McIver) goes drag queen and looks fabulous, while Major (Robert Buckley) and Ravi (Rahul Kohli) get “weird”? Clearly Ravi and Liv make it out unscathed from Martin’s (Bill Wise) basement. I can’t even fathom how Liv will address the imprisoned zombies in her dad’s basement. Will she be direct or hide her knowledge? Should she have brought Clive in to help investigate what her father is up to? Appears “Killer Queen” might just force those questions out into the open…

So what illegal, underhanded adventure do Major and Ravi set off on? Sneaking around a truck in all-black attire can be a sign of “hey, look over here!”. I’m curious if the viles that Liv and Ravi found do contain the original zombie virus and how the development of the cure will play out in the next few episodes.

Washington has decided against nuking Seattle, but General Mills (Andrew Kavadas) is on his own mission to wipe out the zombie population. Wonder if he will feel the same once he is turned into a zombie – my little prediction. With three episodes left, when will war break out? This week’s episode seems filled with hilarious anecdotes and – just like last week – a great case to solve. With the series wrapping up, I hope iZombie honors their fans and actually starts cleaning up their cliffhangers.
