Our Top 20 Countdown continues with our favorite duo heads off to the citadel following a cosmic crime that a villain had committed and finally meet a lost relative. But at what cost? Here's Number 6, Adventure Time, "Wake Up"/"Escape from the Citadel".
These two episodes started the new season just right following the dramatic season finale back in March with the revelation of Finn's Human Dad said by Billy in the constellations. Finn was in shock for hearing this revelation about his real dad alive. Another human...I freaking called it, people!
So we finally got to meet Finn's dad who for the most part can't remember anything since he got imprisoned. What did he do to received that? Don't know. But what we do know since watching the episode is that he want out from the Citadel. Dude, at least recognize your son for once.
Finn's arm was ripped off in this episode and man...heavy stuff to start off the new season. It's like everyone who been theorizing about Finn's arm is giving a warning about what to come before this episode airs on television. I even had to pull the "Guess that Theory" card from my review of the episode. The reason why Finn's right arm was cut off is because while resisting his dad from escaping, that lead the grass sword to handle too much pressure. Enough to cut Finn's arm off before heading to the water and got the flower arm from his stubby arm.
With the fiasco with the prison break and Finn losing an arm, Finn and Jake head back home to Ooo, which they did to recover, but that was until they to do something first, find the humanoid man baby Lich a home, and whose home was it? Tree Trunks and Pig, which found out from this episode that things between them aren't working out and wanting a divorce, but thanks to adopting The Lich, look like this marriage will work out after all.
So why did these 2 episodes got the Number 6 spot? These two episodes started off the sixth season just right and man, what a episode. We got an introduction to Finn's real dad, who we just found out that he can be a major asshole. The Lich made an epic speech that told perfectly that gave in the viewer's attention. Not to mention, that was the last of ever seeing The Lich now that he became a humanoid baby under the care of Tree Trunks and Pig. Prismo's death was something to be upset about because we just knew since Season 5 started and now he's dead...until the episode "Is That You" premiered on Thanksgiving Week. Anyway, the Top 20 Countdown has finally reached the Final 5, so stay tuned tomorrow for Number 5 as we leave Ooo and head off to the ocean of feels as head back to the Toonami block.
