The end is near for iZombie, sadly. “Fresh Princess” is episode nine of thirteen in this season, and that’s the last one. Things are building to a head between Fillmore-Graves, the Dead Enders, Liv’s Renegade network, and everyone else caught around the edges.
Things get a bit confusing and contradictory for people who actually know the history of the Doom Patrol in the sixth episode.
Three episodes in, you could make the argument that not a lot has happened so far this season. Zod still rules Krypton, the resistance is, well, resisting, and Seg and Adam are still stuck on Colu dealing with the sorta-ghost of Brainiac and the very real Lobo.
The fifth episode of Doom Patrol, “Paw Patrol” sounds like a kid’s show. Of course, it’s very, very much not. They change up a few things for the show, focusing mostly on Crazy Jane, or parts of her.
The Doom Patrol went from another obscure hero team to a collection of utter weirdness a while back. Much of this was from the writing of Grant Morrison, who excels at the odd and unusual.
For the last few episodes, they’ve dialed down the new brain quirks, which I’ve actually appreciated. Not that Rose McIver doesn’t do a great job rolling with whatever Liv has become each week, because she does. I just have enjoyed that being a less important part of the story.
We got the new state of affairs on Krypton (and Colu) last episode to kick off the season. Now, things are getting uglier in both places.
