"Friends in Dry Places" is the forty-ninth episode of the fourth season, and the one-hundred-ninety-eighth episode of The Loud House.

Plot

While on a field trip, Lincoln worries that his friend group is splintering.

Why It's a Dull Place

  1. Misleading title and title card: By the title and especially the title card themselves, you would think the episode is that Lincoln finds a turtle on the beach and becomes friends with it, but no, it's just another gang episode and it comes off as really dull and mundane. In fact, the turtle only appears for a small part of the episode where Lincoln is sandboarding.
  2. This episode's premise of Lincoln being paranoid that something bad is going to happen has already gotten tired at this point. It was done better in "Raw Deal" and to a lesser extent, "Predict Ability" (despite copying some elements from "White Hare"). Here it's gone to the point it's tiresome and stale with nothing new thrown in at all.
  3. Speaking of Lincoln being paranoid, the story brought in nothing new to the table, which makes the episode pointless and useless in the same time.
    • For pointless, because Lincoln acting clingy and paranoid to his own friends does not feel that needed since he would be confident enough to not listen to Lynn anyway.
    • For useless, instead of throwing in a different story featuring Lincoln not liking someone at first for making his friends hangout with the said person more than him/her/it until he likes him/her/it in the end or Lincoln getting tired of his friends because every day feels the same to him and wants somethings to change, they throw in the plot line of Lincoln being paranoid. Except unlike in "Predict Ability" or "Raw Deal", Lincoln acts clingy, which is nothing to expect from this episode as stated previously.
  4. Lynn, once again, is extremely unlikeable in this episode. She makes Lincoln think that just because his friends are now in fifth grade they'll separate, which is a complete lie; being in a different grade is not the reason why friends usually separate.
    • Speaking of Lynn, she is only used so she can get onto Lincoln's good side. That is not a bad thing in theory, but here, it's just forced so the story can happen.
  5. Lincoln is once again treated horribly through the episode. Most of the jokes involve Lincoln suffering just for the sake of crappy jokes.
    • He gets kicked by Lynn.
    • Both he and Clyde get attacked by a bear that (for some reason) just happened to appear out of nowhere.
    • He gets trampled by students.
    • He gets whacked in the face by a pillow.
    • He gets electrocuted by a robot.
    • When he goes on his field trip at the very start, he does all his activates by himself and is lonely and sad about it.
      • Not only are these jokes so grating, groanworthy, and frustrating to even bother laughing at, they come off as really sad jokes since Lincoln being in agony is the main joke of the episode, even when he is not being paranoid and clingy.
  6. The second act of the episode goes to the point of using the cliched Liar Revealed story. Not to mention, it's done in a few minutes right before the episode comes to a complete stop!! Lincoln is found out for lying, all of his friends are angry, they leave him behind, Lincoln gets trapped, they (Lincoln's friends) save him, and Lincoln apologizes to his friends in the end.
  7. This episode ends with one last terrible joke. The gang ride the raft, which is being pulled by Cheryl's ATV, but the road becomes bumpy, so Lincoln falls out the raft and they just leave him behind, as if they didn't care about him.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Lincoln is forgiven for crossing the gang's names off the activity list, and hug him, which is nice to see.
  2. Good voice acting and animation as usual.
  3. The title card and its music are good.
  4. Lincoln's friends are still likable characters.
  5. The soundtrack is still good.
  6. There are some funny jokes in this episode.
  7. The episode's first few minutes were okay.

Trivia

  • This is also the last episode where Wyatt Griswold voices Rusty.
  • This episode is mainly considered the last bad episode in the Seasons 1-4 era, unlike what the series became in its fifth season. Despite that, however, the season, has slightly improved itself a little, most likely due to major backlash from fans (like users from The Loud House Wiki). On that topic of the indeed good sentence, its 2021 film called and named The Loud House Movie is a major and massive improvement over Season 5.
