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.
  • Did Not Get the Girl
  • Downer Ending: Where do we start?!
    • Slade's after the Titans again and they have no idea where he is.
    • Theres a monster immune to all of their powers and the episode ends with it fighting the Titans.
    • Terra may be back, but wants nothing to do with Beast Boy (and it might not even be her!). Slade used this to torment the poor kid.
  • 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. The comic book based on this series, supposedly confirmed that yes, the girl was in fact Terra. Slade was right, she chose not to remember.
