S06.E39: Be Sweet

Recommended Posts

In today's episode, Lumpy Space Princess babysits Sweet P. As you'd probably expect, chaos ensues.

 

I'm not sure what to make of the ep. LSP is her usual self: self-absorbed and content to calling Marceline (who's picking nasty stuff out of her navel), while SP runs amok, trying to get Candy Kingdom denizens to perform his usual bedtime ritual. Also, LSP gets into a fight with a raccoon, and I think it gets the voice (the thoughts?) of The Lich, Or maybe I'm projecting that. Also, wouldn't The Lich have better things to do than torment LSP?

I think, but am not sure, that all the sweet stuff they're doing with Sweet Pea to stave off his Lichness is making the Lichness manifest in other living creatures nearby, ie the raccoon. I think it's possible if they didn't continue the behaviours to try to keep Sweet Pea sweet, he'd be more Lich-ey (and possibly the racoon would normalize). But basically my theory is he's sort of...oozing or radiating Lich energy and it gets absorbed by whoever or whatever is exposed the most. So say the raccoon's living space is on the other side of SP's bedroom wall, when he sleeps he's absorbing all that Lichness.

And I think the Lichey raccoon was tormenting LSP because of something more to do with the raccoon than the Lich. Like maybe he knows she's obnoxious to forest creatures or whatever. So the sketchy, scary voice, eyes whatever was Lichness, but fixating on LSP was the raccoon. Or because she was there and why not spread the scary evilness to whoever'll listen? I don't know. I freely admit to having missed many of the Lich-specific episodes when they originally happened so I'm not savvy on the character beyond stuff mentioned this season and last.

I had the impression that the raccoon's "dialog" was just LSP projecting her insecurities on to it. It's mouth didn't move, for example. I didn't think the Lich was involved. But, I've also seen people on another site take both sides of that question, so it was, apparently, not clear either way.

 

The banana guards did not trigger SP's Lich Nature like the school bullies did before. That's good policing. :-)

I didn't notice if the racoon sounded like the lich but thought it was in LSP's mind.

Why is the comet still approaching? I thought it crashed and ended up being Finn's asshole father's spaceship.

I think in one of these most recent episodes someone referenced a "false comet". That was Martin. So when people first noticed the "comet" coming back early, it was Martin, but actually also the real comet is also en route.
