Recap: Teen Titans S 2 E 12 Aftershock Part One
"I knew her better than anyone. I know all the terrible things she’s done. And I know exactly how messed up she is. But she’s not evil. And we can’t just give up on her."Terra returns to destroy the Titans one by one.
- Call Back: Terra reminds Beast Boy that she "doesn't have any friends" when he tries to reason with her.
- Beast Boy reminds Robin of how they helped save him from working for Slade. Robin thus holds back when he confronts Terra alone.
- Cliff Hanger: Typical for season finales in Teen Titans.
- Disney Death: ALL of the Titans, especially since Raven "drowned" in mud.
- If you think about it, Robin was right next to Starfire when she got incapacitated, and the Titans still had their communicators. Fridge Brilliance kicks in when in Season Four Raven is revealed to be the future portal for Trigon; she couldn't die before fulfilling the prophecy.
- Mood Whiplash: The Titans are heckling Beast Boy for telling terrible jokes during a car ride, and then Terra literally crashes into them.
- Never Say "Die": Just about every kid-show friendly variation is used in this episode.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Terra and Raven each dole it out on the other.
- No One Could Survive That: Slade has footage of all the Titans' Disney Death moments.
- Not Brainwashed/ Redemption Rejection: Terra makes sure Robin knows thisTerra: I! Don't! Need! SAVING! I'm not some sad little girl who's waiting to be rescued!
- One-Winged Angel: An oddly heroic example, when Raven assumes her four-eyed angry form and lashes out at Terra during their fight.
- Slasher Smile: Terra sports one of these to help establish how evil she's become.
- Taking the Bullet: Starfire takes a boulder for Robin that knocks her into the ocean.
- Witch with a Capital B:Raven: Terra.Terra: Raven.Raven: Traitor!Terra: Witch!
