Hey guys, first time time posting on the forum, though I've been active in YKTTW
for years. I usually avoid web forums like the plague. But it occurs to me that the trope name "Welcome to the Liberator
" is confusing because the name is 1) dialog-y, and not in a good way; 2) does not actually describe the trope, which is:
Phenomenon on TV shows where when character A leaves, they are soon thereafter replaced by character B, usually of similar age and same gender, who also usually fill or are supposed to fill a similar role.
