An entire nation tunes in with rapt attention as Mr. Burns' assailant is finally revealed. At first, all signs point to Smithers, and Burns' right-hand man confesses when confronted by the police. But new evidence emerges that clears Smithers, and Homer Simpson becomes the main suspect. Based on DNA evidence and a lack of alibi, Homer is detained by police. He escapes custody, however, and rushes to the hospital, intending to get revenge on his boss for not remembering his name. At the hospital, with members of the Springfield Police Department, the Simpsons, and various townspeople standing by Burns' bed, the true shooter is revealed. Burns points into the crowd and gasps as he recalls that Maggie Simpson shot him after a tug-of-war over a lollypop. Since Maggie cannot be tried as an adult (or even a child), no charges are brought and she is free to live out her life as a cold-blooded would-be assassin.
