VIRM assimilates the last of the human APE members, and an indeterminate number of other humans, into their collective. As the ultimate enemy on a show all about sex, VIRM is thoroughly anti-conception; it even pulls life in, instead of pushing it out. Somehow, he processes the eons of time that the princess spent alone, before humans were there.
These are films like Independence Day or White House Down, which might not necessarily be critical darlings, but they work well as cheesy popcorn fare that allows Emmerich to rise above his own limitations as a storyteller and deliver top-tier bombast with an emotional core that ends up working in the story's favor, even if that core is incredibly silly. However, this last quarter of DARLING episodes has fallen dangerously far into the territory of the bad Roland Emmerich movie; projects like or Independence Day: Resurgence lack that certain cohesive spark, resulting in soupy messes of meaningless spectacle, inert characters, and borderline nonsensical stories that play to cookie-cutter approximations of human emotion. Also, many of the cast members are given their moments to be selfless heroes and save the day with the power of love, accompanying more action than we've gotten in weeks.
