We bring down the curtain on The Judas Contract and on the vertiginously villainous career of Terra, who goes out screaming “NO” in thunder at the canons of psychologically realistic characterization (her shrill self-analysis echoed by Wolfman’s perverse narrator). We spend much of the episode fumbling toward the meaning of this interloper’s unique anti-appeal (to us, to 1980s Titans readers, and to the creators). In the final analysis, much like Lynch’s characters in Mulholland Drive’s “Silencio” stage show, there’s absolutely nothing going on with Tara Markov – and that only makes our collective jaws gape further at the spectacle of her demise.
