Jake hires trippy clowns to nurse them back to health, after they hurt themselves, jumping off birds. the clowns form of medicine is to kiss Finn and Jake’s injured feet. Finn is understandably freaked out by this and passes out. when he comes to, he sets off to find a cyclops who’s magical tears can heal any wound.
when Finn reaches the forest, he gets to a talking tree stump, who tells him there are only two ways he can go. Finn flashes back to his run-in with the clowns (who told him the same thing) which causes him to become violent. he kicks the directional arrow sign off the stump, and marches off into the bushes.
he reaches the river, where he is met by a trash-talking bush, who says it’s impossible for Finn to cross to the other side. Finn has another violent episodic flashback, and rips the bush out of it’s roots, using it to clear a path across the river.
Finn comes across a woodland creature who is collecting watermelons. he asks Finn to help him reach his wheel, which is up in a tree. Finn is furious, and throws the creature’s watermelons down the hill, which damage his house, and run over his wife.
Finn feels remorse, and sings a song in his best T-Pain impression. Finn comes face-to-face with the cyclops, who says Finn is there for his tears, but the cyclops refuses to cry. the cyclops smashes Finn into the ground, which lures him close enough, so that Finn can punch him in the eye. the cyclops splashes Finn with his tears, which heals Finn’s injured foot. Finn decapitates the cyclops, using his tears to heal everyone he hurt along the way. when Finn returns home with the cyclops head, he gives it to one of the clown’s to kiss. Jake refuses treatment from the dismembered cyclops head, instead continuing to have the clown nurses kiss his feet.
I couldn’t help but wonder what might have happened if I was watching this episode with Carnival Machine Armada drummer extraordinaire, Gauge Yagee…
