Izel, the shrikes, and the mystery behind Sarge have dominated this season. Now, in a double length finale, all that gets wrapped up.
Last episode was full of repercussions and fallout, ending with some hope for what’s to come. Now, things move forward again, as Fisk’s webs ensnare everyone and some try and fight their way free.
Chapter 24 was described as David going to war, and that fits fairly well. He cut a huge swath through Division Three, which will happen with a vastly powerful superhuman who has mental issues and very little restraint.
The group has been through a lot, and seen enough to doubt themselves. But with the progress they have been making, some faster than others, they are beginning to function better.
Last episode was, essentially, a hostage situation for the entire SHIELD team as Izel body-hopped her way around the base and killed Davis, who is probably my favorite of the new agents, and I’m still really annoyed about.
At the end of last episode, you pretty much knew what was coming for episode three. The Captor, whose name seems to be John Pilgrim according to IMDB, has a large force of men surrounding the sheriff’s office where Frank and Rachel are. We already know this is a dedicated band of hired killers.
The end is almost here. After five fun seasons, iZombie is about to wrap up. This, the second-to-last episode, has the arguably confusing title of “Bye, Zombies,” which makes it sound like the finale. Instead, it’s a lot of build up to, “How are they possibly handling all this in one episode?”
Last episode saw an epic battle between Poindexter (Bullseye) and Matt (sorta Daredevil). I was especially struck by Poindexter appearing as Daredevil (really clever, Fisk), while Matt, in his black costume, looked a lot more like the comic book Bullseye.
