Confirm the Ending having trouble with tests

Tell us what’s happening:

I’ve already completed this challenge with a bit of code that passed the tests but didn’t really do what was asked for. This code works when I manually call for the function to complete but when I press ctrl+enter or the run tests button a couple of them fail.

Is this a problem with my code or something else?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Your code so far

var strArr = [];
var tarArr = [];
function confirmEnding(str, target) {
  var arrayStrRev = str.split("").reverse();
  var arrayTargetRev = target.split("").reverse();
  for (var i=0; i<target.length; i++){
    strArr.unshift(arrayStrRev[i]);
    tarArr.unshift(arrayTargetRev[i]);   }
  var strComp = strArr.join("");
  var tarComp = tarArr.join("");
  if (strComp == tarComp){return true;}
  return false;
}
confirmEnding("", "");
//confirmEnding("He has to give me a new name", "name"); returns as true for me but fails the test
//confirmEnding("Open sesame", "same"); returns as true for me but fails the test
//confirmEnding("Bastian", "n"); returns true but if I write something like confirmEnding("horse", "cow") that would fail the tests it fails the tests which is weird.
//another note, if the target is two words I wouldn't be able to have any true answers, I'd have to remove special marks and convert everything to lowercase.```

By declaring the following outside the function, they will retain the values they had during the previous test when the next test starts. The FCC tests are ran consecutively.

var strArr = [];
var tarArr = [];

Thank you for the insight and the speed. Moved em down and that solved everything.
