Finn & Jake’s tree serves as the most clear indication that the passage of time is likely close to the thousand years that Lemonhope mentioned. It’s an immediate pointer that this is an entirely new era, and the gigantic tree and surrounding blooming grass indicates that it’s a healthy world.
The climate and the mountains in the background also makes it clear that Betty is successful and Simon gets freed, and isn’t subjected to the fate of, “being the Ice King until the sun blows up.”
The Lemon kingdom remains unchanged, suggesting that the tragedy and turmoil of the totalitarian government has come to an end as of this episode. The Candy Kingdom continues to advance and grow until it is eventually… abandoned.
While there are crashed planes, broken windows, and and the city is dilapidated, the buildings are all still standing and aside from minor superficial weathering over an undetermined length of time, it’s apparent that they’re totally undamaged when you see it from a distance. It certainly doesn’t look like the result of war, especially when compared to the images of the world in the era of the post-Mushroom War from I Remember You, and Simon & Marcy.
With all the other dimensions, magic, science, and a laundry list of other things - who knows why no one but Lemonhope is still around in this far future, but if anything’s made clear it’s that even in this empty future, one thing is still there…
That little beacon of hope is strong - and no matter what else is gone, it will always remain. Despite the melancholy tone, he falls asleep with a smile on his face somewhere he feels free and at home. Even when the world moves by and leaves behind everything we remember, hope remains.
