The plot of iZombie has taken an interesting turn over the past couple seasons. Like many TV shows, it could have done pretty well for itself, falling into a status quo. Ten years ago, had it come it, it would have basically been the equivalent of shows like Psyche or The Mentalist, where you can pretty much watch it in any order without losing much, but iZombie has made pains to avoid that.

With each passing season, the mythology of zombie-ism has deepened, and the relationships between all the leads have changed tremendously. No longer do we have an instance where half of the cast is out of the know in terms of zombies existing (Season 2 saw that end in quite the uproarious season). Now, zombies are pretty much out of the bag, and the story has turned into one where the obstacle is fighting against prejudice and for equality.

Never has iZombie ever been a series to fall into a comfortable rhythm for very long (though I suppose the mystery-solving psychic stuff is still there). In the latest trailer from The CW, we get a tease of what’s to come. Will Liv and the gang manage to survive in a world that hates on zombies, or will they be able to make a difference?

Below is the official synopsis for next week’s episode, “Blue Bloody”:

“It’s a real-life game of clue for Liv (Rose McIver) after she eats the brains of a despicable dowager and must determine which one of her disgruntled servants killed her. Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) and Bozzio (guest star Jessica Harmon, The 100) are struggling to maintain a healthy relationship. Meanwhile, circumstances place Major (Robert Buckley) and Liv in opposition to one another.”

iZombie airs on Mondays at 9/8c on The CW!
