    This episode was pretty good. That was one heck of a (not so) sweet seventeen for Finn.

    Nice reference to the Arthurian tale of the Green Knight. Takes me back to high school English class.

    I'm surprised they got away with such a gorey decapitation onscreen. Granted, there was green juice spurting out, but still.

    I knew that the Green Knight was really Fern. I mean, a shapeshifting green guy? He came back strong, though, seeing how he absolutely wrecked Finn's bionic arm.

    Oh, and the horse was Uncle Gumbald and the other bubblegum relatives? Didn't see that coming. Looks like my theory on LSP's anti-elemental reverting them back to their original state was right all along. Vindication!

    What the-- and they still try to keep the party going after all the crap Finn went through? Look at the poor boy's face, it just screams "I hate you all right now".

    I'm not surprised Fern would fall in with our new enemies for the evening... So yeah, things are only going to get much more rough & ugly from here (especially for Finn, who is due for more effective character development like he got in Islands, so I'm looking forward to it, thanks in part to having much more of a stake in this, going forward.); no matter how much everyone tries to mask their feelings by "Happy Birthday, Finn"...

    Yeah, I legit feel sorry for Finn having to fight his "brother"; unfortunately, he should have killed him earlier on to avoid this, IMHO, hard as it would have been, otherwise. He may have no choice but to do so, now - knowing whose side Fern is on, now.

    It'd be a disgrace if the remaining Adventure Time episodes only appeared on demand and the app, given what this show did for its parent network.

    The rest of the episodes are now up.
    I've updated the thread title.

    Uncle Gumbald now has his own Finn
    Tree Trunks is really bad with relationships

    And did we just find out that Simon originally summoned Hunson to look after Marcy in his absence, which is how Marceline met him the first time?

    After watching the episodes beyond Seventeen (which was a High Tier effort, BTW...):

    I can easily rank Ring of Fire as one of the best filler episodes ever for this series (High Tier seems reasonable enough...): mainly because of who it focuses on - Tree Trunks has always been an interesting character and it's about time we probably got a proper backstory on her (her relationship issues, her adventuring days, why she finally chose to settle down, etc.).

    i wasn't too much of a fan of Marcy and Hunson, however - as much as I enjoy seeing focus on Marceline (my favorite female character), it was just Marceline's dad being more annoying than funny. I'm glad he acknowledged that, but other than some backstory on how he knows Marceline since she was a kid, that changes little - he's still annoying, if that ending line is any indication (rather Middle-of-the road, honestly.).

    The First Investigation...:
    I knew at some point, we would have to revisit Jake's origin story proper - by having Jake confront what took part in creating him in the first place; I'm looking forward to those next episodes that will cover that and see how Jake will come to terms with not being a real dog... Hopefully, better than his reaction to what were NOT ghosts all along (that twist even took me by surprise, so good job there.), surprisingly enough. Still, definitely another High Tier effort, IMHO.

    ...except for "The First Investigation"! CN didn't upload that episode onto the app, so I had to watch it on demand at my grandparent's house.
