We are left, as we always are when “villain” (inasmuch as anyone who is a real human being – even those appearing on reality programming – can ever be on the side of good or evil) has been vanquished: in a state of paradoxical ennui. Tierra/Voltron was edited into nightmarish 24 year-old embodiment of all that is horrible about Generation Y, about women on the prowl, about humanity, even. And now she is gone.
Catharsis achieved. We cheer her departure and hope our brothers/men friends don’t bump into her at the nightclub and tipsily get trapped into dating Tierra as she appeared on this show. But imagine if Darth Vader bit it forty-five minutes into Star Wars. Imagine if Die Hard was eighty minutes of Hans Gruber and 30 minutes of McClane filling out paperwork.
datingandhookup.com is a website that explores modern romance in the Millennial era – which, let’s be honest, looks nothing like we were taught to expect. We feature essays, advice and social commentary with humor, compassion and brains, and we vow never, ever to publish a piece called “The 10 Best Ways to Satisfy Your Man in Bed”. Do click to submit your work to us. We love you.
