Discontinuity that went unnoticed
I noticed this about the episodes "Holly Jolly Secrets" and "I Remember You." There is a slight discontinuity about the Ice King. In "Holly Jolly Secrets" the Ice King appears to remember his past and knows that he was at one point Simon Petrikov. In "I Remember You" he has no recollection of Simon even after watching the tapes with Finn and Jake that established his back story. Here is my theory behind this: the crown hasn't completed it's process of transforming Simon into the Ice King and he will inevitably reach his "final form" that will transfer his character from neutral evil to chaotic evil and require him to be slain by Finn and Jake or rescue Simon from within the Ice King.
