Since his plan to frame Krusty the Clown for armed robbery was spoiled by especially Lisa, but ESPECIALLY Bart, Sideshow Bob has tried to kill various members of the Simpson family many times. A gas leak for Aunt Selma, a machete for Bart, a nuclear bomb for all of Springfield. Yet, all of his first-degree attempts have been unsuccessful, occasionally because he can’t resist performing the entirety of the H.M.S. Pinafore. Until this year.
Simpsons showrunner Al Jean told EW that during “Treehouse of Horror XXVI,” which airs October 25, Sideshow Bob will finally kill Bart Simpson.
Over and over again.
“You never saw the Road Runner lose. This time you do,” quips Jean. “His whole life has just been about killing Bart, so what’s next? We deal with how Bob would really feel once he accomplished this goal he’s had his whole life.” Any hints on how exactly will Bart meet his maker? “There’s a betting pool on the manner of death,” says Jean. “What I’m going to say is: Everyone in the pool is going to win because he gets killed so many times.” (Via)
