* While I do consider her insane, I don't think it's the way you said it. I think she's going evil insane. As in, towards the end of the series, she'll become the new BigBad and try to have Finn and the rest of the human race exterminated for "causing mutants to exist". This leads to a whole [[AnimatedFilm/Pochahontas Savages]] song, a massive civil war (complete with several Evangelion expies), and eventually, World War IV, culminating in Finn and Flame Princess (after getting back together since PB was involved in a conspiracy to break up Finn and FP so FP could take over the Fire Kingdom and she could plant Cinnamon Bun as a spy while slowly draining Finn's sanity) turning back time and preventing World War III between the US and Russia, which started in Ukraine.

Instead of defeating Golb, Finn will end up convincing Golb that the current reality is still worth continuing. The Lich might be "reclaimed" as part of this, stopping him...at least until it's time for reality to reset again.

* Bonnie and Marcy will get married.
* Finn will either start dating Huntress Wizard officially, get back together with Flame Princess, or get a new, human love interest.


After being defeated, GOLB reveals himself to be a GracefulLoser, and offers Finn anything. Finn chooses to go back in time to stop the Great Mushroom War. He succeeds, and returns to his own time to find Ooo is no more. Rather, everyone and everything is normal. While he's nothing but a normal high-school student now, a few people, such as Phoebe and Simon, retained their memories from the old timeline. Finn will always remember, though, all the glorious adventures he went on.

[[WMG: Golb is the entity in charge of [[HistoryRepeats the wheel of time history repeating]].]]
Adventure Time seems to run on the idea that history repeats-the Mushroom War was not the first cataclysm as seen with Evergreen, and it won't be the last as seen with the FlashForward episodes. The Catalyst Comet comes every millennium to bring an agent of change. The multiverse itself was preceding by the PrimordialChaos Orgalorg and possibly the Lich came from, and chances are something was before it/something will come after the multiverse. Golb is the being who maintains the cycle.

With this in mind, Golb isn't a villain in a traditional sense, but rather a god of change that's AboveGoodAndEvil. The Lich is evil and wishes [[OmnicidalManiac to kill everything]], but to Golb he merely exists as the means of restarting the multiverse like how mass extinction allows a new ecosystem to emerge from the vacuum. The reason why Finn's Pillow World life was deleted by Golb is because Finn has some importance to the cycle and can't die yet. Margles was taken because GGGG and Magic Man were trying to subvert or stop this cycle for whatever reason. Of course they would fear the ultimate entity of death and rebirth.

Instead of defeating Golb, Finn will end up convincing Golb that the current reality is still worth continuing. The Lich might be "reclaimed" as part of this, stopping him...at least until it's time for reality to reset again.

* In "Holly Jolly Secrets", Simon said that the crown was of Scandinavian origin. We're all familiar, I'm sure, with the HansChristianAndersen story of The Ice Queen. Now, in Fiona's world, her Ice Queen explicitly wears a tiara. Ergo, the relic in Fiona's world from Scandinavia originally belonged to a Queen or Princess. That means that Fiona's world is likely the future of our world, with the story of an existing Ice Queen. And if we were to travel to the parallel world that would be Ooo, we would meet gender-flipped versions of ourselves.

The Lich has elements of [[EldritchAbomination being a cosmic horror]], a massively overarching villain and desires [[OmnicidalManiac the extinction of all life]]. He also has ties to the multiverse, and most notably knows or personally experienced an age of "monsters"-an endless expanse of eldritch horrors that predate creation. This isn't that different from the Crimson King, who has ties to the Prim(also an endless expanse of eldritch horrors that predate creation) and seeks to destroy the multiverse to restore them. The Lich's motives could be similar to his, in that he wants to end all life so to either restore that original existence, or allow them dominance once more. Either because he is one of them, or a servitor of them. More likely the latter, [[spoiler:as he describes himself as "the last scholar of Golb"]].

* "Whispers" provides evidence for this, as the Lich states himself to be "The Last Scholar of Golb".



It's possible that, through ThePowerOfLove and ThePowerOfFriendship Simon can slowly bypass the wish magic forcing him to imitate Evergreen and the Ice King becomes more like his old self. Betty's plan of undoing the Ice King is flawed because he's already beginning a slow transition to becoming Simon, albeit with the body and some of the traits of his new self. In her haste [[NiceJobBreakingItHero she may have bungled this process up]]. Reminding him of who he was without coming off as (mainly unintentional) condescending, having Ice King learn and become more intelligent, all are steps that could finally bring him back. Even if it takes another thousand years.

[[WMG: The Lich is a FightingAShadow situation.]]
Despite being only one or two years old, the Farmworld version of the Lich hasn't shown to be any less experienced or really different than his main timeline counterpart. In "Whispers" he already knows where the Well of Power is in this universe and mentions fighting Finn in many worlds. Rather than the Lich being a singular entity, the different versions are extension of the true EldritchAbomination. "Lich Prime" is similar to Prismo, a being who transcends contemporary space-time. For whatever reason it cannot enter the other universes, but must instead be summoned in a physical vessel.

The green Catalyst Comet opened the gate for the Lich to press itself upon the multiverse, and the Mushroom Bomb summons him into a waiting body. Of course, this can be pretty inconvenient since in some universes he is unable to enter, and in others there was no summoning. That's why he wants the Enchiridion. In case Prismo's magic doesn't affect the entire multiverse (we know he has limits, so it probably doesn't) he can use it to copy-paste his physical avatar to every universe. Possibly more than once depending on the limits of the Enchiridion.

While Finn may have defeated the Lich of his reality, the true consciousness of the Lich exists in a state he could never hope to truly destroy [[CosmicHorrorStory and will always be ready to return and threaten the multiverse]].
