Full Story


The logo for this episode.

In a parody of the movie The Omen, at the Springfield General Hospital, we find out that the third baby Marge had was actually a boy, but Homer didn't want another boy, as Bart is bad enough. Dr. Hibbert offers that he adopts Maggie, who actually has demon-like powers, which she uses to choke Hibbert with his stethoscope and burn him.

We see Maggie use her powers to spin around stuffed animals heads, make them vomit up their stuffing, and make Kearney and Jimbo hang themselves.

Ned sees Maggie's devilish abilities and attempts to kill her at a abandoned church. Homer and Marge try to stop him, but Ned shows them that Maggie 'bears the mark of the beast'. He shows, under her hair, a mark that looks like Mickey Mouse. This is the wrong mark, however, and the real mark is the numbers '666', the number of the Devil.

Before Ned can kill Maggie, she rises in the air, and breaks open the roof of the church. Homer states that Maggie is still better than another boy, and all three of them get giant spear-like weapons stabbed through their hearts, revealing the title: TREEHOUSE OF HORROR XXX.

Danger Things

In parody of the Netfilx show Stranger Things, Milhouse is featured as Will, Bart as Mike, Nelson as Dustin and Lisa as Eleven.

The story is set in the 1980s, where after a night of playing the Atari 2600 game E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Milhouse falls victim to kidnapping by a Demogorgon. His worried father Kirk begins going insane by destroying the wall as well as creating Christmas lights as a means of communication (not unlike what Joyce Byers used to communicate with her son, Will, in Stranger Things). Milhouse in the Over Under (A parody of 'The Upside down') decides to contact the Simpson household with Lisa picking up. After finding out Lisa does not returns his feelings he hangs up. Lisa heads to Starcourt Mall (infested by rats that change the sign into Rats court Mall) to find Bart and Nelson playing at the arcade. She tells them that Milhouse is still alive and in another dimension. They decide to get help from Jonathan Frink in order to travel to the Over Under. Lisa (bald now) finds Milhouse in the other dimension and try to escape till they find an alternate version of Springfield full of Demogorgons (such as Moe and Comic Book Guy). Lisa and Milhouse get surrounded by Demogorgons, so Lisa uses her psychic powers to get rid of the creatures. They are finally saved by Homer, who is working for Mr. Burn's secret government program to find monsters. Sadly, they are trapped in the dimension so The Simpsons decide to live in the Over Under.

Homer is happy that there are no Ned Flanders in the Over Under until a Demogorgon version of Flanders appears, causing Homer to burn the Demogorgon.
