Upon realizing the Vampire King is alive again, Marceline flashes back to her previous battle with him. In order to preserve the vampire race, the Vampire King sacrificed himself to bite Marceline, making her the last vampire. Marceline manages to track down and confront the resurrected Vampire King, killing the Fool and reabsorbing his power of flight. However, before she can battle the still weak Vampire King, he warns her that the Empress is headed for the Ice Kingdom.
The Empress arrives at the Ice Kingdom and uses her powers to hypnotize the Ice King, ordering him to bring her the blood of Finn. Marceline attempts to attack the Empress right as the Ice King returns with a captured Finn. Finn escapes, and the Empress orders Ice King to capture them. In an attempt to jog the Ice King's memory, Marceline tells him that she was motivated to start hunting vampires when she killed one trying to attack a human family.
However, it's revealed that the Ice King was never hypnotized by the Empress, but merely acting as he always does around women. Marceline then attacks the Empress, but the Empress quickly gains the upper hand until she is paralyzed by a special gun Bubblegum developed. Marceline kills the Empress and reabsorbs her power of invisibility.

Marceline agrees only on the condition that the Hierophant no longer drinks blood, but he attacks her instead.
But Make It Fashion
During the struggle, he is accidentally knocked into Jake and dies due to entering a house uninvited. Marceline reabsorbs his shapeshifting powers but then falls ill, having been stung and poisoned by the Hierophant's stinger.
Princess Bubblegum takes Marceline to the Candy Kingdom to try to find a cure for the Hierophant's poison. Meanwhile, Finn and Jake track down the Moon in hopes of using her healing power to heal Marceline. Upon finding the Moon, they find that due to her healing powers, they can't kill her with their stakes.
However, when they try to fight back, the Moon uses her powers to incapacitate Finn and Jake as she attempts to kill Marceline. Fortunately, Peppermint Butler stabs the Moon in the back, her only weak spot. Marceline reabsorbs the Moon's healing power and fully recovers from the poison. Marceline and the group prepare for their final confrontation with the Vampire King. The abandonment reasoning Walch cited makes a ton of sense here.
Which the comics pretty much confirm too: In my view, there had to have been some kind of fight. Maybe it was when Marcy got back from her 6-month residency in the Primordial Filth Kingdom do we even want to know? And for PB, her work would take priority over everything, even to a fault. Basically, they both made mistakes, they both were people who needed a good bit of reassurances in this department, and they both lacked the ability to have an emotionally honest conversation because of a shared flaw.
So this was a powder-keg waiting to happen. At the same time, PB was feeling genuinely stressed because running a kingdom especially her way takes a crap-ton of effort. Marcy, for her own part, sees that PB is somehow the one angry with her, and that just turns the knife, making their relationship devolve even further.
Simply put, things were acrimonious for years. And while PB was more wont to hide behind her work and ignore that Marcy even existed, Marcy tried to hide her own pain under biting sarcasm and pranks. Following this, the two women seemed to be on totally friendly terms with one another.
The rest is pretty much on-screen history. Which is why she then tells PB: Which is why I am declaring them as dating now. Not to mention PB managed to have fun at a party!
These two simply are dating. And you know…they just behave as happy, loving girlfriends.
