Recap: The Simpsons S 19 E 5 Treehouse Of Horror XVIII
Kodos is a murderous E.T., Homer and Marge are dueling husband and wife assassins, and Flanders uses the seven deadly sins to scare some Halloween hoodlums straight.
- Downer Ending: One of the few halloween episodes to avert this. (Although it's ambiguous as to if the deaths in Heck House really happened)
- Insistent Terminology: Since Kodos was alive at the end, it was a vivisection and not a dissection.
- Riddle for the Ages: Whatever Homer thought about saying when he was about to kill Kent Brockman, he never said.
- Seven Deadly Sins: "Heck House"
- Shout-Out: To ET and Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
