After a disappointing episode last time, Blood Drive roars back to life with a crazy entertaining episode. Jack and Diane, brother and sister carriers of a terrible sexual zombie plague, are out to kill Slink and infect the entire Blood Drive to do so.  Once the people of the Suck Bus get infected, zombiesexual hijinks ensue!

It is pretty amusing to me as the writer of Pusse’ and Cox to see a mindless zombie plague transmitted by sex on the television screen. I was impressed by how they had the infected covered in blacklight style glowing foam as a way to suggest nudity without showing it. Much like mud-wrestling, once everything is covered in liquid, you pretty much look naked.

There is a lot to love in this episode. Barbie tries his hand at playing DJ to the Blood Drive and finds a small amount of success when he lets people try to kick his ass. Being an MC is hard!

Later, Barbie gets infected and tries to bang Grace. Horny Barbie is a hilarious change of pace for the Good Cop and easily one of my favorite bits. A knee to the nuts from Grace brings Barbie some clarity and Grace keeps re-applying the treatment.  You know, Barbie getting hit in the nuts is a powerful metaphor for what this series keeps doing to him.

Speaking of abuse of male parts, Tortured Cop finally stops getting tortured and gets a job as a mail boy for the Heart Company. Of course, doing such menial work is just another form of torture but sheesh, I am so grateful that the Hostel-level of torture seems to be at an end. Hot Robot Chick continues to titillate and torment in ways that I am sure will imprint on many of the viewers of the show.  They might be my favorite Dom/Sub couple in fiction right now. Plus, Tortured Cop gets to try to do sneaky stuff to help Barbie. At the end of the episode he becomes a Security Guard and you just know that won’t end well.

We get more back-story in this episode. Slink worked at a bio-weapons lab. Of course he did! The sex plague was made by Heart! Of course it was! At the old lab is a prototype blood engine called a Soul Something-or-Another. I missed what it was because my ears perked up at the mention of ‘Soul’ which backs up my theory that all of Heart’s inventions actually come from Hell.

Let me tell you, my wife was so happy to hear the engines run on souls instead of blood because she thought the blood spray from the engines was too wasteful of a machine that turns blood to fuel. Science!

The episode ends when the Heroes realize Jack and Diane are carriers and the only cure is to get them to have sex with each other. Of course! As an erotica writer, I am all for the solution involving a sex act. Don’t worry, as soon as they gave into their unspeakable desires, they were fed into the Soul machine and everyone was cured of their sex plague.

All in all, this was a great crazy episode. It completely restored what doubts I had for the series. Heck, even Tortured Cop and Hot Robot Chick has some fun moments.
