Thats not to say that Elodie doesn't have some genuine too-stupid-to-live moments, but this isn't really one of them.
You're telling me she couldn't seen the tentacle's source? Or, you know, aim for any spot that isn't on Briony? Or, for that matter, just blasting the tree itself?
No, it still feels like a Too Stupid to Live moment, because there's no real excuse for her to run over there instead of using magic in a creative manner.
