Honestly...I'm completely on Clarissa's side here. Despite her...rather rude and harsh way of putting it...she makes some great points, and I fully respect and understand them.

Uh...I can't tell if what Clarissa's doing is sweet or horrifying.

Clarissa is easily the highlight of this season, she is such an interesting character and I love listening to her talk. I don't agree with her but I find her outlook on life to be fascinating.

Clarissa... she’s a terrible person, yes, but the cynical side of me can respect her motivations. High schoolers are the most evil people on the planet, so why not stick up for the little man in that species?

I feel like this episode so far is just solidifying that Clarissa and Kasai are the highlights of this season and must be protected at all costs.

God Clarissa just oozes star power <3

This type of content would be a death knell for most, but I'm pretty sure she's good for right now anyway.

SWING AND A MISS. Good try though, Clarissa.

I'ma get psycho-analytical here.

I get where Clarissa is coming from, I think most of us do. But for someone who claims to be beyond the people who hurt her in high school, she sure seems to be fixated on those people and how she was hurt in her past. I feel like she lets the pain and resentment of her past inform a lot of her nastier decisions, and uses her own pain and desire to be superior to justify a lot of shitty, occasionally manipulative behavior. I know a lot of us might end up behaving in the same way if we had gone through what she did, although probably in less overt ways...

She's not wrong about Claire or herself being better than the bullies they both faced, and that they're both intelligent, natural leaders that have a right to be confident. But I get the impression that Clarissa's got issues and her success has sort of given her a bit of a power trip.

And she clearly wants to give Claire some closure on the pain they've gone through. But the Claire she sees now isn't the same Claire she remembers herself being. That Claire only exists in her memories; the one in front of her has already grown and diverged from the Claire that Clarissa was: by being in this competition, taking charge, and slowly coming into her own in small ways, as well as through simply existing in the same space as her older self. (And the closure she wants to give is clearly intended more for herself and less for Claire; Claire just so happens to be kind of the perfect proxy for the timid nerdy girl Clarissa once was... since she's literally that person except for the experiences in this competition).

Clarissa probably isn't able to fully realize this fact since she's hardcore projecting onto her time-displaced younger self (granted, it's clear that any future self can't help but project on any past self... or the reverse, at least in Deimos's case; it's sort of impossible to NOT project on ANY alternate version of yourself).

The presence of the two Claires makes for an interesting take on the "abused nerd turned successful megalomaniac" archetype. And I'm excited to see where Clarissa and Claire will continue to diverge as the story continues.

*clap* Thank you! This is the comic I needed to understand Clarissa as a villain - using dirty moves and taunting everyone because of her low self-esteem caused by school bullying, and showing her soft side to weak people because she sees herself in them. Who knows, if she doesn't god-mode another challenge, I might like her.
Claire is definitely not going to become a bad person like Clarissa, because she confronted the bullies on the Past tribe instead of holding a grudge.

Was reading the family visit page and realized this season's visit is going to be for the ages.
"Say hello, Mom, this is my older self."

I think the consensus is that Clarissa's a terrible person, but she's damn entertaining for it.

Reply SkySurfer, July 20th, 2019, 5:31 pm

So basically she became what she hated the most but got famous with it. I still miss the Clarissa who defended Atlas against Lady Bit but can understand that she was sick of all the bullies Claire mentioned during the time she confronted Nayla.
Not surprised this duo won't work together but I wonder how long it will take Clarissa to realize....
