Instead, this episode was basically a giant metaphor for God first and foremost. Also the fact that Magic Man seems to be the manipulator of Finn says something too. Magic Man says he won't be back, now this could easily be interpreted as he's giving Finn free will over how he interacts with the mini-characters. Finn does the opposite, in that, he directly makes them do things that they may or may not do had it not been for manipulation. This presents the battle between destiny, a common theme in 'Finn the Human/Jake the Dog', and free will. Basically they are two types of gods Finn being the omnipotent manipulator and Magic Man being the watcher. Now in the end Finn says something similar to Magic Man, which leads me to believe that this was all set up to say "if there is a God he does nothing but observes, you make your own life." I mean the clues for this interpretation are even in the storyboard ie: Jake playing "The Devil Went Down to Georgia."

[[WMG: The Lich's greatest fear is a LossOfIdentity.]] In "The Comet", it is revealed that Finn was a Catalyst Comet, representing "all that is good", with the Lich being "all that is evil." Despite being a comet, Finn isn't single-minded to [[TheHero his purpose]] as [[OmnicidalManiac the Lich.]] Finn chooses to be human, rather than a cosmic being. The Lich, however, doesn't want to give up being a cosmic entity. The reason why the Lich is so single-minded in his desire to destroy all life, the reason why it's all that drives him? Because the other option would be to allow himself to be reborn, over and over, losing his former status and identity. While the Blue Comet/Finn was fine with the opportunity to become a new person, this is the one thing that terrifies the Lich. Even if it means forever being an engine, a slave to his function of mass death, it's preferable in his eyes to becoming a new, different person. Ironically, [[ImmortalsFearDeath the Lich fears "death"]] in the same way just about anyone does. Thus making his VillainousBreakdown in "Escape the Citadel" all the more meaningful; it wasn't just ReviveKillsZombie, but the Lich being forcibly reborn as Sweet P, losing himself.

the episode in it's entirety, from the simplistic plot to the character's eyes, were all a throwback to the early days of animation - mostly because Jim Cummings guest starred. The character's eyes and overall emotion reminded me of those early days in animation.

* Yeah, it seemed to me that they were winking at the classic "cartoon animal" by giving them those eyes but then inverting the idea by making them a weird creepy cult...

* ** Yeah, it seemed to me that they were winking at the classic "cartoon animal" by giving them those eyes but then inverting the idea by making them a weird creepy cult...cult... * Notice the jabs or winks at classic cartoon tropes. The most obvious was when the porcupine tried to boost finn up with the Looney Tunes style poke in the butt, which didn't work because it doesn't really make sense in the AT universe. Another example was when Finn just steps through the wide bars in the "prison" that looked like, well, he could just step through. I think Pendleton has said he didn't want to have "cartoonish" physics in his show. I know AT has lots of subversion like this in it but it really showed in this episode. ** Actually, This episode shares its title with an old Donald Duck episode.

* It's like... the tree/animals represented old cartoons... and AT/Finn was trying to escape from conventional cartoon norms!

The thing can apparently [[DeaderThanDead kill Margles so much not even]] [[RealityWarper Prismo can restore her]], is mentioned as a terrifying demon by the Martians, and the fact its hinted at being an EvilCounterpart to Glob suggests that it's some SatanicArchetype, AntiGod or UltimateEvil. Golb will be revealed as [[TheManBehindTheMan the man behind the Lich]], having corrupted the Catalyst Comet to manifest as an OmnicidalManiac for [[HiddenAgendaVillain his purposes]](not that the Lich knows this). With the Lich [[SealedEvilInACan canned]], Golb can take over was the new BigBad.
