Warning: spoilers ahead for tonight's episode of iZombie, titled "Some Like It Hot Mess."
Tonight's episode of iZombie answered a question that's been burning in fans' minds since the start of the season: Did Blaine really lie about his memory loss, or is he truly a decent guy now?
The answer turned out to be...both? Well, okay, so maybe he's not exactly a great guy, but after having a brief bout of memory loss, Blaine saw it as an easy way to escape his past, and took the easy path. Now that he's come clean -- and it didn't go so well for him -- don't expect him to go gentle into that good breakup.
“Blaine is angry and hurt coming out of this,” executive producer Rob Thomas told ComicBook.com. “We hinted at it at the end of last episode; when you see Blaine brewing up Ravi’s blue juice at the end, we wanted to say to the audience that an angry Blaine is a dangerous Blaine.”
Blaine has had a fascinating arc throughout the series: in the first season, he was the big bad -- a dangerous sociopath who seemingly had no empathy or redeeming qualities. Season 2 saw him acting more like Harry the Hat from Cheers: he certainly wasn't "part of the gang," but he periodically popped up, was more a nuisance than a genuine threat, and sometiems teamed up with Team Z to face bigger and badder threats.
Could Blaine be returning to true Blaine form soon? It's hard to say...but with nothing to lose, who would be surprised?
"The next two episodes deal with what Blaine does with this information," Thomas said, teasing that soon enough the character will find out what's been going on with his father and Don E, and that will be a game-changer.
iZombie airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
