With The CW hit zombie show, and 2015 Best Of TV Awards winner for Best New Show, iZombie wrapping up its 2nd season tonight with a 2 hour finale, here is a quick look at scenes shot for the first part of that finale.
Early in the day a scene was shot in the alley near where the exterior for the Seattle Police Department/Morgue is in an alley called "Arch Alley" thats been used by almost every show in town. Rahul Kohli shot a scene as Ravi Chakrabarti seemingly swinging a fire extinguisher at "someone" (I got there near the end of that shoot... so I never saw who was supposed to be on the receiving end of that swing).
Later on this shoot moved to the very public Vancouver Art Gallery steps in downtown Vancouver. A location practically every major production has used at one point or another. We find here Rahul as Ravi on set with Malcolm Goodwin as Detective Clive Babineaux on scene, but due to all the extras and equipment set up during the scenes, I never managed any shots of them filming their part in the scene.
The two who were on full display however were Robert Buckley as human turned zombie turned human zombie hunter turned zombie Major Lilywhite and Rose McIver aka - Olivia "Liv" Moore, the zombie star of the show. The scene at the time didnt make a lick of sense, but after last weeks episode where we see Major getting arrested for being the Chaos Killer, this all made a lot more sense now.
Major and Liv leave the Seattle court house to a swarm of reporters and photographers wanting answers. Neither of the zombies seemed willing to provide answers from the scene they shot there. Whether those answers come in the courts.... we'll have to wait & see. At some point it has to come out youd think that hes not the Chaos Killer, but the Chaos....Chiller. (I know terrible joke... I'll see myself out). How will the public react to the idea zombies are a thing? How will Clive react?
Later in the night, another scene with Major and Liv was shot. This one showing Major leaving the jail to an awaiting Liv who helps a very tired & weak looking Major get away. Did Major break out? Was he released? Again, we'll need to check in tonight for those answers.
During the day, all the cast stopped to sign autographs and take photos with fans at different points throughout the day. So far in the 2 seasons here, with the exception of 1 now seemingly removed from the crew PA early on this season, this shows cast & crew have been quite welcoming of fans & regulars alike most times.
The finale will see some of the action happen at a Max Rager release party that was filmed in whole or part in Surrey at an abandoned business building with special guest star, Matchbox Twenty lead singer Rob Thomas. Of course, fans of the show know the inside joke of having Mr. Thomas on the show, as he shares the same name with the shows creator Rob Thomas.
I have no added the two videos I promised (if you read this paragraph before). They are at the bottom.

iZombie shooting season 1 finale - lets just say Meat Cute has a MAJOR problem - Robert Buckley, Aleks Paunovic and David Anders on set
THIS POST CONTAINS POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 13 OF SEASON 1 OF "IZOMBIE". If you do not wish to read or view possible spoilers from the show. Do not continue.
Next Tuesday, the season 1 Finale of The CW hit zombie show from DC Comics Vertigo iZombie will air.
Back during production, I caught them filming a few scenes in my neighbourhood throughout the season, but none more open than the ones for the finale.
Earlier in the day, they shot a scene with Aleks Paunovic as Julien Dupont shooting a scene where he is rummaging thru Major Lillywhites truck and finds an envelope. crosses the street back to MeatCute with the envelope in his hands.
They then shot scenes inside that included David Anders and others. I took a break from there as they shot these scenes that were all inside the restaurant.
When I returned, they had already prepped the area for the final scene I would see shot of the show. We see Robert Buckley as Major Lillywhite has managed to escape the MeatCute freezer and is ready to kick some asses and take some names. Major moves towards the meat store with a shotgun and blows the side window of the store out. At that time I ran out of space on my memory card, and feeling I had just seen a pretty cool scene, I went back home. I wish now, knowing how things have played out, I would have stayed to see what happened next.
Below are a few pics from the day, and a video of 1 of the takes of the shooting out of the window.
iZombie finale airs June 9, 2015 on The CW
