Recap / Teen Titans S5 E13 "Things Change"

Beast Boy encounters a girl who looks exactly like the long-presumed dead Terra, and there is a very real possibility that it is her. However, she claims to have no memories of being a Titan and lacks Terra's powers.

Tropes:

  • Apathy Killed the Cat: While the other Titans wonder how Terra could have recovered, Beast Boy doesn't question it, only caring that she's back.
  • Bolivian Army Ending: The episode ends with Beast Boy finally joining in the battle against the new enemy. The resolution is not shown. (The follow-up movie does not address this, although its very existence implies the creature was dealt with in some manner.)
  • Did Not Get the Girl
  • Downer Ending: The episode ends with Beast Boy accepting that the Terra he knew is never coming back
  • Fix Fic: Quite a few "fix" this episode where Beast Boy is able to successfully convince her to come back to the team. Successfully managing to miss the entire point of the episode.
  • Nothing Is the Same Anymore: The Titans return after defeating the Brotherhood of Evil to find their home city changed.
  • The Unreveal: Done on purpose. It's never actually revealed whether the girl Beast Boy meets in this episode is Terra with amnesia, or whether Beast Boy mistook the girl for someone else, etc. Although given that the "Schoolgirl" outright tells Beast Boy "things were never the way you remembered them" it should be incredibly obvious that it is in fact Terra who does remember and is choosing to repress her memories and powers.
