Until it happens, I suspect they're pulling a fast one on us. We already know Homer's getting the Hank & Dean treatment in the next flash-forward episode.

Or they'll just get a completely identical replacement like Fat Tony.

Patty will be killed off, and Maude will come out of the closet. And also be alive again.

Is this going to be anything more than a cheap bid for attention?

Sorry it's mostly porn and racism.

That's okay. I'll make sure it's 100% porn and racism when I'm done with it.

Wait what?! This is new information.

If I had to guess, it'd probably be someone they haven't used for a long time, like Otto.

But really, show, we already went through this with Maude.

New information from July.

...And it's an anthology episode.

Huh.

EDIT: Or maybe not. I recall reading that the voice actors don't know who's getting killed off yet, so that episode's not going to be for quite a while.

We have an article with alleged spoilers for the dead party!

For those who don't wanna click, the apparently dead party is

No.

Seriously, I don't even watch the show any more, but I *don't* want that character to go.

I hope this'll turn out to be false.

EDIT: OK, reading the article, it seems like the character's identity is just a rumour, with nothing really substantiating it. (Also, why the heck do they keep getting Krusty's dad's name wrong? Don't they have Google on whichever planet the writers live now?)

I hope the whole episode gets canned really. I mean, Marcia just died! It's a bit on the tasteless side!
