Super() passes up or down the chain?

In the video, Kenneth mentions around 4.35 that the super() method passes things up and down (the inheritance chain). In previous videos we were only taught that it passes things down? Can anyone clear this up?

Thanks

Hey Youssef, I'm having trouble understanding how MRO works also, and I wasn't getting a response here either. However, I did get a response on stackoverflow. I got a pretty in depth answer on how it works, Check it out.
