  • I haven't seen this show in years but if there is one arc that I completely remember its this one.

    10
    Out of all the Teen Titans episodes that aired, this has got to be my favorite episode. Why? Its funny, romantic, action packed, and tragic. Its basically the reason why I loved this show when I was a kid in the first place. This is also the episode where Beastboy really does shine as a very serious character. I love also that he basically becomes the main character by the end of the series run and leaves Robin in the dust (always hated TT's portrayal of Dick Grayson) But anyway I'm off topic. This is a perfect episode because its successful in bringing up all sorts of different emotions. The ending will have you in tears because and spoiler alert:

    You actually care about the pairing of Beastboy and Terra and its downright sad that it was true love that was shattered by a desperate struggle. Its great stuff!!moreless
  • A heartbreaking episode.

    8.0
    The montage with Terra and Beast Boy having fun at the fair was absolutely gut-wrenching and heartbreaking. Seeing them so happy, and knowing how it all turned out in the end. This is actualy one of those episodes I didn't watch originally, so I watched "Things Change" before this one. I guess that may be the main reason why I couldn't fully enjoy this episode. I loved "Titan Rising" regardless of this, but having watched the series finale and now going back to see this one, it's really sad. It would've been sad if I saw this one first though as well, but "Things Change" puts an extra heavy emotional, sad tone to it all.



    This episode does not reveal too much, such as why Terra now works for Slade. Near the end, we get some really powerful emotional scenes as Beast Boy rejects Terra, the scene with Terra in the hall of mirrors, with her creppy expression on every mirror was unsettling. Slade, again he's such a fantastic bad guy, he is so evil and sinister. And he has fighting skills to match his evil.



    "Betrayal", what can I say, it's a great episode, and an absolutely heartbreaking one as well.moreless
  • Terra has been with the Titans for a fair while now. She has her own room, a communicator and even a little romance with Beastboy. Everything seems perfect, but is it.moreless

    It seems that every Terra episode has to star Slade, dissapointing, she is such a powerful character it would be interesting to see how she coped with villans like Jinx. This episode basically focuses on Terra and Beastboy. They are posibly the second set of best friends in the Titans (the other being of Robin and Starfire) but their friendship doesn't last through the episode. It really doesn't focus on the other characters as the fight scene was only really a bit to create inbetweens. Slade in this episode was a really mean character and Beastboy becoming angry was most unusual to the character. Overall an enjoyable and entertaining episode which is a must-see if you're following the Terra story.moreless
  • Terra how could you?

    8.6
    Pretty much Terra just completely ruined her whole pink vibe thing going on. So she comes back, becomes a titan, makes friends with everyone including Raven, and then she takes Beast Boy on a date but to the titans agony she is really a spy for Slade and everything gets ruined. Some highlights I liked about this episode was the fight going in the tower when Terra and Beast Boy were having thier little date. Raven was awesome there(but anyways she's always awesome so...) and the fight scene was really cool. I kinda disliked the whole Beast Boy and Terra thing I am really a Beast Boy and Raven fan but the word I would use to desrcibe thier relationship is bittersweet. I didn't really feel that sorry for Beast Boy though, I felt more sorry for Raven because it took her the longest to get used to Terra. Well that's my review.moreless
  • Terra reveals she is a spy for Slade and breaks off her relationship with Beast Boy.

    8.5
    It was not a very much of a tearjerker but it was sorry. I liked Terra and she could have remained for at least 5 episodes before the betrayal, so we could like her better and watch her fight alongside the Titans. Still, the writer tactfully depicted Terra's regret and reluctance to follow Slade's orders. In the end, she still broke Beast Boy's heart and became a clearly defined Titan official enemy. Beast Boy seemed so sorry being a dog but I realise he can fight Slade better than Robin, only he is too good-tempered to do so. Well done indeed, more to come I hope.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (16)

    • In the hall of mirrors, the red side of Slade's Mask is on the right side of the mirror, in the real face shot of Slade it's also on the right, so it should be on the left in the mirror.

    • When Terra and Beast Boy were riding the haunted house ride, the "T" on Terra's shirt is missing.

    • Why did Raven crack the floor down if she knew Cyborg was standing nearby?

    • When Raven attacks the Sladebots after saying, "That's my room!" she throws two huge chunks of the wall at the robots. The tower, however, is not that thick, so where did these chunks come from?

    • At the beginning of the episode, when the snap shots are being taken of each Titan (excluding Terra), every picture is tinted, except for Starfire's.

    • When Terra says, "Beast Boy, come on!" her eyes are gray when they are supposed to be blue.

    • At first when Beast Boy and Slade are fighting on one of the ferris wheel carts, the cart says number 4, but when you see Slade jump off of the cart, it says 9.

    • For much of the fight between Beast Boy and Slade on the ferris wheel, the cars they are standing on don't move when you can clearly see the others moving in the background.

    • At the start of the episode, when the Titans are playing 'spin the pizza slice,' if you look closely, you'll notice the slice clearly has pepperoni and anchovies on it. So, two questions: Why was Beast Boy sad about losing, and why was he even playing?

    • After Beast Boy returns to the Tower, there's a back shot of Robin with a rip in his cape, and his belt showing through. Isn't his cape 10 times stronger than steel?

    • When Terra is shown in the mirrors, with all of the reflections of her horrified face, the reflections are all of her face made enormous, with none of her body being shown. Also, if you look at all of them, you can tell that all of them are the same image, with no changes in angle or anything.

    • When they show Slade in the hall of mirrors, he looks like he's about eight feet tall in the reflection, but he's standing far enough away that he should look smaller than Beast Boy and Terra.

    • Where's Cinderblock and/or Plasmus? They're indestructible, and it would have given Slade more of a chance to wipe out the Titans.

    • Why does Beast Boy have a huge rectangular hole in the outside wall of his room? The tower is supposed to be locked down for the night, and flying up to that floor would be trivial for any number of villains.

    • When Slade threw Beast Boy out of the door of the ferris wheel car, it was labeled '3'. However, when they show a shot of Terra and Beast Boy in it later, car 3 is above them.

    • During that cute little carnival montage, Beast Boy and Terra knock down milk bottles with baseballs (or at least Beast Boy does). He throws one, so he has only two left. Terra throws one, misses, and then Beast Boy throws another one, yet he still has two, even though he should really have one.

    • Slade: The girl you knew was merely an illusion. A fantasy. In reality, she's been working for me.

      Terra: (After destroying several of Slade's robots with it) Thanks a ton!
      Raven: Closer to TWO tons, actually.

    • Beast Boy: (About Terra) Now she'll NEVER go out with me! (He hears a cough and see's Terra watching him from his window) Um, how long have you been standing there?

    • Slade: I trained her to control her impressive powers. Then sent her to destroy your little T from the inside........

    • Terra: (To Beast Boy) All I ever wanted to do was to spend time with you.

    • Slade: (As Slade has Beast Boy in a choke hold) You think you know her? You know nothing. She never even liked you!

  • NOTES (15)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Beast Boy: Gorilla
      When Beast Boy catches Terra as a gorilla, it is similar to the movie King Kong, where he holds Jane that way.

    • Terra: Do you trust me?
      The scene when Terra is floating on a rock, holds out her hand and says, "Do you trust me?" is similar to what Aladdin does in the Disney movie, Aladdin.
