Liv Moore, your friendly neighborhood zombie detective/medical examiner, eats the brains of a pregnant woman and starts getting all maternal and shit.
I don’t know why I phrased it like that but it seemed appropriate. A pregnant woman is found murdered. They save the baby (somehow…she looked pretty dead when they found her…idk how the baby survived but ok…) but the woman goes to the morgue. After Liv eats her brains to help find her killer she starts being protective of everyone and obsessed with making sure everyone has eaten….pretty much every stereotype of a mother.
In a confusing twist, Liv and Lowell no longer have chemistry. Which upsets Liv until Lowell admits he is temporary gay due to the last brain he ate. Which makes no sense at all. If they took on the sexual orientation of every brain they ate then Liv would be a lesbian every time she ate a straight male brain. I’m guessing the things they inherit from the brains they eat are random but having sexual orientation being one of them is odd.
This does lead to what looks like the funnest date ever. Well… the funnest date that doesn’t involve sex ever at least. Liv and Lowell play games and watch movies and basically have a girls night. It’s a very cute montage scene.
The episode is a little uneven, overall. It’s not my favorite. Don’t judge the whole show by this episode, though. Aside from Lowell suddenly being a genius gay guy its not the best episode.
