Princess Bubblegum must stop Finn from dating Flame Princess, and Jake thinks she's jealous.


Finn goes on a date with Flame Princess, he builds a house for her and goes to Tier 1 (hugging). Jake helps him get to Tier 2 (smooching), he explains there are 15 tiers (He went 1, 2, 5, 8 and 15), though he specifically said "DO NOT DO TIER 15!". They go home, and see Princess Bubblegum in the Tree Fort to collecting taxes (Treasure). When Finn showers, Jake explains to Princess Bubblegum that Finn is dating Flame Princess. Princess Bubblegum is afraid that if they go to Tier 2, the world will explode. The next day, Princess Bubblegum comes to the tree fort to explain why Finn must not date Flame Princess, but Finn sneaks out and Jake falls asleep. In Jake's dream he becomes president. When Princess Bubblegum wakes him up, he think she's jealous. After Finn comes home, Jake asks if Finn is in Tier 2 yet, he says he got about 5 hugs, so Jake helps him write a sappy poem. The next day at sunrise Finn looks for inspiration to write a poem when Princess Bubblegum surprised him, she tells him he's not allowed to date Flame Princess, then he gets angry at Princess Bubblegum and admits he used to have a crush on her, then he leaves and goes off to meet Flame Princess. Princess Bubblegum unrolls a sheet paper and says "Oh no." She then finds Jake (while he was singing about Bacon Pancakes) and tells him what will happen if they got to Tier 2 and says that's why she got the Flame King to put Flame Princess inside a lantern, because she can't handle extreme romance. So Jake and Princess Bubblegum went to stop Finn and Flame Princess before they got off to Tier 2, but Jake and Princess Bubblegum were too late. A hole was formed, and Flame Princess turned unconscious so Finn gave her air to rescue her, Jake covered the hole with his body and it turns out the world doesn't explode. In the end, Finn and Flame Princess use a rock to represent Tier 2, and Princess Bubblegum says "Oh, Finn" and turns to Jake who has a big grin on his face and says "Jeeeealous?" and she replies to him by saying "shut up."

  • At the start of this episode, Finn jumps into water that looks like The Ocean, and isn't afraid. It is unknown if the creators of the episode intended the water to be a lake, or if it is just a not-thought-through scene.
  • Also, Finn's foot was on fire by Flame Princess. However when he extinguished the flames, Flame princess was not hurt.
