Liv can’t bring herself to carry out Isobel’s last wish - to eat her brains. She just can’t face the body. Which also gives Ravi more time to experiment at least
And they have another tragic drama brewing - Curtis their captured coyote, is due to be executed by Chase Graves unless “Renegade” gives herself up.
Liv, naturally, is all for this. Ravi and Levorn are very insistent that she better not. I get it form the whole personal connection but the idea that Liv is utterly central to the organisation given how recently she joined them is a little dubious
Chase is also seeming increasingly disillusioned with Chase with Captain Hobb from admin dropping in to basically sound Major out on a coup - preferably with Major in charge. Which Major is willing to listen to after the killing of Captain Seattle last week (and Jordan, camping with Major while recovering, is all in favour of this). Unfortunately it seems Hobb is secretly working for Chase in his paranoia who is feeling out whether Major is still the loyal golden boy
Just because he’s right doesn’t mean Chase isn’t paranoid.
As Liv begins to sneak out to give herself up, Major is there to stop her: declaring that she’s right
And can I just say a resounding “fuck you” to Major here? Sure it’s easy to be outraged by injustice and death when it’s someone you care for who is being hurt - but he was right there while Mama Leone was being executed. You were there firing guns to intimidate journalists. So, yes, Major is in my shit box.
He can’t talk Liv out of it so he drugs her and kidnaps her
Yes, he’s definitely in my shit box. He even leaves a message with Jordan to tell Ravi and Levorn not to worry but he’s kidnapped Liv until after Curtis is executed (never mind him or his pregnant wife).
Major then makes himself even worse by giving him and Liv the brains of an ancient happily married couple, turning her into a 1950s housewife. Oh but don’t worry, Liv Cleaver does make it clear that this only works because she likes Major anyway. Yes, we know she likes Major, they were betrothed. But she’s also ragingly pissed with him and we know exactly how much brains control Liv’s behaviour. Major, you are the worst for this attempt at mind control Stockholm Syndrome. The utter worst
