Episode 1×01 “Pilot”
iZombie follows Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver) a disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out… until she is turned into a zombie.
Now stuck somewhere between half-alive and undead, Liv loses her drive and ambition. She breaks off her engagement with charming soul mate Major (Robert Buckley), fearful of infecting him with her condition.
Liv transfers her medical residency to the city morgue in order to access the only form of sustenance left available to her – the only thing that allows her to maintain her humanity – brains.
There are side effects to Liv’s new diet: With each brain Liv consumes, she experiences “visions” – flashes of the corpse’s memories – which often provide clues as to how they were killed.
Her boss, the brilliant but eccentric Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli), encourages her to embrace this gift and to work with unproven homicide detective, Clive Babineaux (Malcolm Goodwin), to help solve these murders.
In doing so, Liv finds a measure of peace, and a new sense of purpose in what her “life” has now become.
