"Things change, Beast Boy. The girl you want me to be is just a memory."
Part of Season: 5
Episode Number: 65
Air Date: January 16, 2006
Writer: Amy Wolfram
Director: Michael Chang


"Things Change" is the sixty-fifth and final episode of Teen Titans. It is the thirteenth episode of Season 5. It is also the last episode before the series finale movie, Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo.

Bad Qualities

  1. What's probably the main reason for this episode being disliked is because it's a massive cliffhanger episode, making it feel more like an unfinished multi-part episode. As doesn't help it didn't resolve the finale issues, with the TV film finale Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo, which was focusing on tying up the Robin x Starfire shipping, was building up throughout the original series.
  2. This episode sounds as if it was a poorly written Beast Boy x Terra fan-fiction.
    • As well, using the "Nothing Is the Same Anymore" trope in a somehow badly handled here. As sure it takes place days after the events of "Titans Together", but the trope is only used when it affects only the Teen Titans' interest (including the major plot point of this finale), rather than actual big changes (setting/lore-wise) in Jump City when the Titans were gone. (i.e., like a few more new original but unnamed Villains attacking Jump City, instead of just only one, as we got)
  3. Plot hole: How do Terra both survive/revived after for all? And how does Robot Slade know it's really her, other than it maybe could just be a look-like of Terra?
  4. The fighting between the Teen Titans (except Beast Boy) against the unnamed White Monster (or called by the fanbase as either "Thing" or "Periodic Table of Mayhem") is used only for sub-plot filler.
  5. Two of Terra's friends are very unlikeable as they constantly butt-in on Beast Boy and Terra, and they don't get punished for their actions. Although to be fair, they had a good reason to as Beast Boy wouldn't leave Terra alone.
  6. Beast Boy comes of as selfish in this episode as he only cares about Terra than helping his team defeat the monster at the beginning and middle acts.
  7. It is never explained or revealed how Terra returned or if it's really her. Additionally, it is never revealed what the White Monster is, what it's intentions are, or if it was ever defeated by the Titans.
  8. The show already felt like it had a better conclusion with "Titans Together" so the point of this episode was unnecessary.
  9. The other Titans spend the entire episode chasing and fighting the Monster and do nothing else outside of that.
  10. The finale movie, "Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo", doesn't resolve the cliffhanger at all and completely ignores everything.

Good Qualities

  1. The moments of Beast Boy with Terra in this episode are emotional
  2. Slade appears in this episode, but it's a robot.
  3. The show's comics (Teen Titans Go!) will help pick it up where it left off.

Reception

Although some people liked this episode, others hated it because the episode had no solution answered. Another average episode is Every Dog Has His Day

Trivia

  • This is the only episode where Slade appears in season five. Also, his last appearance in general.

The TTG Titans reactions to this episode: Beast Boy: What? That’s how it ends? Starfire: And there is no sixth season to resolve the plot’s hanging from the cliff?

Robin: (To Control Freak) You ended that show? You monster.

It won’t, no matter how much the fans want the 6th season, it will never be made, fan made episodes are the only way to continue the story of the original series

You know, I'm going of topic a bit, but just a question, the series final of Waiting in the Summer have a similar problem? As well as the first episode of Rugrats: All Grown Up? And if they do, can we add those to this wiki?

And this is probably why teen titans go is created.

Ironically, this episode shares the same name to the TMNT 2003 premier episode.
