    I am writing this from my grave.



    no seriously, this was an epic season finale.

    We got to see Billy, the Lich, the revealing of the Enrichidon's (bah spelling) secrets, and Alternate Dimension Finn and Jake. I found a lot of parts fairly weird and hard to comprehend, for example, the first 2 minutes of the show (Finn's dream) were pretty mindless, buuuuutt on the other hand, it's Adventure Time. Everything about it is weird.



    It was fairly obvious that the Lich was posing as Billy the whole time, but whatever.



    I really got kind of lost at the part where they were exaplaining the connection between dimensions and items of 'ultimate power'. They should of tried to spread out the explanation, or at least slow down a bit.

    Now getting to the pros of this episode; Finn and Princess Bubblegum. Over the course of this season, their relationship has been slowly deteriorating. Finn seems to be getting more testy with her each episode. It really showed in this episode when PB accidentally slashed Finn's face with a pair of scissors.

    AND THE ENDING.

    IT WAS FORSHADOWED LIKE CRAZY, YET I DIDN'T SEE IT COMING.



    WELL DONE, ADVENTURE TIME. WELL DONE.moreless

    I was never a fan of Adventure time at the start but I stuck with it and I love it. Now this Episode improves my love for it.

    Finn gets a dream about the lich( The guy from season 3 that nearly killed Finn, Jake and Princess Bubble gum) returning and tells Billy ( their idol) about it. He tells them that they need to round up all of the princesses' (and Ice king) Jewels and put them in the enchiridion. Wait, wasn't the enchiridion stolen by that bear in the episode "in your footsteps" you say? Well you know that at the end of that episode he gave it to the lich possessed snail. Well that snail gave it to billy who is actually the real lich. Finn and Jake are warned by Princess Bubble gum but the lich opens a Portal leading to an alternate universe! Still with me? Then Finn and Jake try to stop the lich/Billy entering the portal only for them to fall in and the episode ends with Finn(with a nose and Robotic hand) on a farm with a mute, normal Jake who are then called in by Finn's mother!!!!!! Confusing but epic!!



    This episode is confusing and kind of demented. First off the title card which shows the Lich's face up close in graphic detail and if you look in it's eye's you can see Jake and Finn curled up in little balls seemingly traumatised. The Lich itself is always terrifying and I dare you to watch this episode at Night in the dark on full volume! Then seeing Bubblegum cut Finn's face with scissors is very cruel even if she says it's an accident coupled with her cutting and then re stitching these little people's legs off is also creepy. And to top it all off you get to see Billy with half his face burnt off so you see one side of the face being normal and then the other side being the Lich was very upsetting. I don't remember seeing a cartoon network show's episode so violent since the first Regular show Halloween special.



    It seems that I hate this episode but I do think it's perhaps the best Cartoon episode ever! Seriously!moreless
