A memorial service for Prismo turns into a resurrecting adventure for Finn and Jake in another dimension.
The episode begins with Finn and Jake doing a memorial service for Prismo by dancing around a small table with a jar of the last of Prismo's pickles. Jake starts to cry as he is about to devour the last of the pickles. Finn says they can put it again in the fridge, but Jake says the pickles were meant to be devoured. He and Finn perform the dream ritual and Jake eats the pickle. A huge light explodes, so they go to their beds and Finn and Jake dream of Prismo.
The next day, Finn wakes up screaming from his dream. He finds that Jake is already up. He sees Jake is outside and pretending to dig up Everything burrito. He asks Jake why is he pretending to do so, and Jake is startled to see Finn. He comes down to see Jake, but Jake suddenly explodes. When Finn reaches outside, he doesn't find Jake. He then sees Jake talking to nothing, re-enacting the moment where he danced with the dancing bug. Finn speaks to Jake, but as soon as Jake notices Finn, he explodes, much to the shock of Finn. Finn thinks he is still sleeping and slaps himself. He realizes he isn't dreaming, and sees Jake inside the Tree Fort. When he sees Jake, he is again acting his previous memories and Finn says he already did those things. As soon as Jake notices Finn again, he explodes.
Again, Jake is heard singing the song Bacon Pancakes, flipping an imaginary pancake. Finn feels that something is wrong with Jake. The scene changes to another dimension where the real Jake is. He is confused where he is. Soon, he sees Prismo, who is talking about getting Jake his pickles for his birthday. Prismo starts to go away, and Jake sees he didn't noticed him and starts to follow him up. He gets confused, as he is alive, saying he and Finn saw his Old Man body destroyed by Lich. He gets to the end of the tunnel, where the re-enactment from Wake Up occurs, where Prismo is killed. Soon the area where he was in changes to another long path.
Finn is seen in his Tree Fort bored of Jake acting up his old memories and when he notices Jake talking to him, Jake explodes again. He then comes to the conclusion that Jake's memories are re-manifesting themselves and when Finn acts out of order in his memory, he explodes. He then finds that something must have happened when they went to sleep. Soon, Jake's last night memory comes and Finn acts accordingly.
The scene changes to Jake, who is seen passing through the path to the end, where there is a door. While he was going in there, he could see his old memories with Prismo surrounding him. He passes through the tunnel, and discovers at the end that there is a bed. The bed is a Permanent Opposing Industrial Strength Magnetic Bed. He also notices a bunch of other luxurious and extremely rare things like the bed's blanket, pillows etc. He then thinks that this is a trap, and then says that whoever made this trap has accomplished and Jake sleeps on it. Soon, Prismo appears in the wall behind Jake.
The scene changes to Finn acting the last night's ritual. When Finn finishes his acting and goes to bed again, he sees that as soon as Jake slept, Prismo's pickle jar began to glow and Jake got inside it. Soon, Finn follows Jake to the other dimension.
He hears Jake voice in that dimension, and follows his voice. He then sees Jake running in the tunnel before. Finn follows him, but Prismo stops his peeking through a hole. Finn is startled when Prismo is seen alive, and Prismo explains he is technically still dead, but put up a Plan B in case he ever died. He says he is talking in the past, but now he can see Finn. He also explains that since Jake and he have made a Bro-bond, he can bring Prismo back to life.
Soon, Finn follows Prismo and another Jake again runs through that tunnel, which Prismo peeks to check on him. Prismo explains he has to wake up Jake and see what will happen. Finn gets confused, so Prismo says that he didn't think this plan all the way through. Soon, the Prismo near Jake apologizes to Jake that he died, with the real Finn and Prismo peeking on them. He tells him to wake Jake up, which he does. He goes near Jake and the other Prismo says that his past self must be doing plan B. Soon, Finn wakes up Jake, but he doesn't want to wake up, since his sleep was very deep. But as soon as Finn pulled him away from the bed, Jake became normal.
They both go to the real Prismo, and the other Jake soon arrives at the same bed. Jake is startled to see Prismo alive and extremely happy too. Prismo then tells Finn to stop his other self who is going to wake up the other Jake. But Finn gets confused. Soon a voice is heard and he tells them to hide. The other Prismo and Finn arrive to wake the other Jake. Finn gets totally confused, but gets his mind cleared when Prismo says he has to stop his 'that' who. Prismo then explains that one of Jake's alternate reality will sleep for eternity to keep Prismo alive, to which Jake accepts.
Soon, the real Finn goes to stop the other Finn from waking the alternate reality of Jake. As soon as the other Finn goes to wake up the sleeping Jake, the real Finn comes up behind him and stops him, making him explode and turn into Finn Sword. Finn takes that sword, as that sword is made up of his alternate reality. Soon, the episode ends, as Finn and Jake welcome Prismo back and the alternate reality of Jake changes into the Old Man Prismo.
- The Lich (flashback from "Wake Up")
- Citadel Guardian (flasback from "Wake Up")
- Lady Rainicorn (pictured)
- Prismo is resurrected in this episode through a convoluted plan.
- Finn gets his first major sword since the Grass Sword, called the Finn Sword.
- Jake asking if the world was "just some goof's dream" may be a reference to a fan-theory stating that the real Finn is in a coma, and every episode of the show is a dream of his.
- Jake even says 'That's stupid' meaning the writers disagree with the theory.
- Finn and Jake's pickle ritual is similar in style to the rites of ancient mystery religions such as the Dionysian Mysteries and the Eleusinian Mysteries. Specifically, the white clothes, use of singing, and use of instruments are all thought to have been fundamental parts of ancient mystery rituals.
- The plot of this episode shares many similarities with the plot of the Legacy of Kain/Soul Reaver series, particularly the deliberate creation of a time loop and subsequently breaking it to form a temporal paradox, as well as one of the primary protagonists being transformed into a sword as a result of the time loop.
- This episode reuses animation from "Wake Up" and "Escape from the Citadel".
- There is a very slight difference: at the end of "Wake Up", only Finn starts running after the Lich. In this episode, both Finn and Jake start running after him.
- This episode serves as an aftermath of Prismo's death from "Wake Up."
- The first time the Finn Sword was seen was in "Breezy" when it was being held by Princess Bubblegum in Finn's vision. The promotional art that was drawn for this episode features Princess Bubblegum as Finn imagined her in that episode, though Bubblegum herself is not present in this episode.
- While sleeping, Jake reenacts scenes from several episodes.
- Him burying everything burrito in "Conquest of Cuteness."
- Him teaching the dancing bug how to dance better in "Power Animal."
- Him talking about how he could escape Kee-Oth's trap in "The Pit."
- The "Bacon Pancakes Song" from "Burning Low."
- Him telling Finn about how his spirit will always be with him from "The New Frontier."
- The Tough Guy Contest from "Crystals Have Power."
- The thorn in Finn's hand created after the loss of his arm-flower in "Breezy" is seen again.
- After waking up screaming, Finn looks at the thorn, implying he had a nightmare of the Grass Sword.
- In this episode when Jake re-enacts the "Bacon Pancakes" song, he sang the first line twice.
- When Jake re-enacts the "Bacon Pancakes" song, both Jake and the stove have moved.
