    So someone finally offed mr burns. well, tried to anyway. this episode was extremely well written with a lot of jokes and many clues which all point to different suspects, more alibis piling up throughot the episode. was it homer (burns couldn't remember his name)? was it bart (burns caused his dog to break his legs)? was it skinner (the school went broke because of burns)? was it willie (he got fired)? smithers (didn't agree with what burns was doing)? was it santa's little helper or maggie (they were both at the scene of the crime)? was it everybody else (burns blocked out the sun)? this cliffhanger was great especially the zoom out when hibbert points at the screen and says:
    "i don't think we'll ever be able to solve this case. can you?"
    the camera zooms out and shows wiggum. "well, yeah, i'll give it a shot. it's my job, right?" burns finally got what he deserved but the town of springfield has no idea who to thank
