Mrs. Baker is so underrated she’s honestly probably one of my favorite characters. you really see her change from the past episodes to the present episodes. she’s so happy and she’s glowing but after her daughter dies not only her personality but her appearance goes to shit. she’s been through quite possibly the worst thing any parent could ever go through; finding your own son or daughter dead after they killed themselves. now all she’s gonna be thinking the rest of her life is what did i do wrong. hannah’s parents honestly deserved so much more then they got.
Grunwald has always been important to the story… and in 7x08 she says to Hanna there is a darkness surrounding her and Caleb. And what is around Hanna and Caleb? Spencer.
For the record, this is the episode where Spencer and Aria talk to the doctor who help Mary deliver ‘two of her babies’.
Spencer’s twin is coming.
And so here is the last of the first 4 episodes of Season 9
and this one in particular is a huge lore bomb and raises many questions about
what’s to come with Uncle Gumbald and the rest of the series!
I’m glad that PB has an episode named after her, similar to
Finn the Human, Jake the Dog and Marceline the Vampire Queen, which all have to
deal with huge backstory and Bonnibel Bubblegum is indeed a ton of lore from
PB’s character and the Candy Kingdom.
While swimming in a lake, Finn gives PB the silver cup that
BMO & Ice King got from Uncle Gumbald in Always BMO Closing.
Princess Bubblegum gets reminded of how her uncle used that
cup and decides to tell Finn, Jake and Marceline some of her history, like 800
We see a young Bonnibel traveling in an abandoned house,
finding a family photo which makes her create a gum family with Neddy.
She creates a cousin named Chicle, an aunt named Lolly and
of course, Uncle Gumbald!
They help farm the area, however Bonnie’s family turns
against her due to wanting to brand their family and turn the farm into
apartments. Gumbald ends up cutting down taffy trees, building a cabin and
creating a family crest symbol.
Bonnie ends up creating a lake, which becomes Lake
Butterscotch, as well as creating the gummy fish, which appeared in The Comet.
Gumbald gets angry that she micro-managed her and plots to re-brand her.
The family gives Bonnie a car with a boyfriend, being Mr.
Cream Puff and while she comes back, Gumbald makes a juice that turns people
into candy people, but also makes poison cupcakes that changes Chicle to be a
cookie named Crunchy and Lolly into a talking piñata named Manfried.
Bonnie is shocked to see Gumbald turn against her and ends
up pea shooting the juice, which changes Gumbald to be a Punch Bowl.
Bonnie titles herself as a princess to the candy people and
back in the present, BMO reveals where he got the cup was from Gumbald, ending
on a suspenseful cliffhanger.
This episode was filled so much continuity, depth and
backstory that I did not expect to see make consequences in Adventure Time!
First of all, it seems that LSP’s anti-elemental effect from
the end of Skyhooks II in Elements, made Crunchy, Lolly and Punchy change back into their original forms, which is why Uncle Gumbald is back and
plotting revenge against Finn.
We even got to see a cameo of PB’s ex-boyfriend, Mr. Cream
Puff, which was also created by Gumbald.
I even noticed how they were in the shot of that episode and
was amazed they put them in the background on purpose and now it makes sense
why there was missing Crunchy posters in the past 2 episodes.
I liked how we got to see more of Neddy and how PB herself
created a family and had to fix her own mistakes.
Bonnie is a very flawed character, but she is one of my
favourites and the writers for this episode, Aleks Sennwald & Hanna K.
Nystrom gave her one of the best episodes, being Jelly Beans Have Power and
this is another fantastic episode showing her flaws and what she had to overcome
of her past.
As a young girl, she’s really smart and quite fun to watch.
Hanna & Aleks are some of the favourite storyboarders
that came on the show and I can’t wait to see their last remaining episodes.
The continuity was incredible, as we got to see Gumbald chop
down the taffy trees in a single night, which PB explained in Susan Strong all
the way back from Season 2 and the cabin that Gumbald built that PB explained
she used to stay in Hot Diggity Doom from Season 6.
Even the beginning of the episode was pretty laid-back and
it’s cool to see Finn, Jake, Marceline and Bonnie all chilling. More Bubbline
I liked the slight nod that Bonnie mentions that family is
tricky and how both Finn and Marcy can relate, but Jake couldn’t, which makes
sense as Jake doesn’t like to talk about his past.
Aside from The Wild Hunt, this episode was one of my
favourites from Season 9, so far. I love episodes that give further detail and
lore about the world and characters of Ooo and recognizing characters’ problems
with past and what they had to do to get to where they are in the present.
I’m sad there’s such little time left of the show and I
really want to know what exactly Gumbald’s plans are and what he hopes to
I’m hoping for the return of GOLB, as well as what’s
happening with Betty and Normal Man on Mars, but it’s probably best to wait and
see what the Adventure Time crew has planned for the end.
I cannot wait for more! These were a fun string of episodes.
