In the episode, Guillermo del Toro will save Mr. Burns from his troubles with the law, after Burns is called in front of it for one of his crimes against Springfield, having to show some goodness in his bad life.
Al Jean explained to SyFy: “There’s a real-life thing called a mitigation video where if you commit a crime, you make a video that you show to the court. If it’s well-made, you can convince the judge to reduce your sentence. So Mr. Burns made a mitigation video and he had Guillermo direct it. And Guillermo says, ‘All my life, I’ve loved monsters — King Kong, Godzilla, Godzuki, but Mr. Burns is the most misunderstood monster of all.”
Regarding Apu’s return after the controversy, Al Jean added: “If you are a bully and you’re using The Simpsons to bully people, we don’t want you, you’re not a Simpsons fan — and I’ll kick your ass. That’s my response in general on Apu. And the only other thing I’ll say — I will just defer to what Matt Groening has said, and that’s it.”
Al is refering to Groening’s comment “I love the character, and it makes me feel bad that it makes other people feel bad, but on the other hand, it’s tainted now — the conversation, there’s no nuance to the conversation now.”
