Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
In a rare evening TSTO Update, last night we received an episode tie-in update for this Sunday’s episode of the Simpsons! Only makes sense considering this Sunday is the major Treehouse of Horrors episode!
So this tie-in brings us a massive ancient pond for our Springfield’s…inside thepond? Well there’s donuts in that there pond! How do you get those donuts? Well you fish for them of course! Duh!
Anywho..there’s a fun little “creepy” questline to go along with getting those free donuts, so let’s take a look at who you need to keep free for this little questline…
Ghouls and Gluttons Pt.1
Homer: Boy, I can’t believe I let you talk me into taking you fishing. It’s so boring.
Bart: You lost the bet, Homer, you have to act like a father for a whole hour.
Homer: Ugh. I don’t even like to eat fish. It’s so lean and protein-y and…O.M.God..there’s a donut floating in the pond! Gimme that stick!
Bart: It’s called a fishing pole. And what do you want with a soggy donut?
Homer: It will be a sad day when I pass up a donut just because it’s wet and covered in algae.
Bart: Fine. But this time I’m just dropping you off at Urgent Care. I can’t spend another Saturday waiting while you get your stomach pumped.

Grampa: Homer! Don’t take that donut! You’ll doom us all!
Homer: Oh Dad, you’re such an alarmist. “Don’t put that fork in that socket!” “Don’t pet that bear!” “Hey, your arm is on fire!” I don’t remember anything bad ever happening to me. In fact I don’t remember ages 3 to 9 at all!

Ghost of Marge’s Father: Homer! Don’t eat that donut! You’ll doom us all!
Homer: Marge’s dead father? Wow. That’s….random.
Ghost of Marge’s Father: Your father is right. That donut must remain in the pond.
Homer: Listen to you! “DON’T eat the donut?” “My father is RIGHT?” Those words don’t even make sense.
Ghost of Marge’s Father: Please Homer, all our lives depend on it. Well, not mine, I guess. I’m already a ghost.

And there you have it my friends…the short and sweet (donut wise) little questline! Not to bad, should only take you 9hrs to complete. The downside? Well you’ll need Homer, Marge & Grampa to complete it…all characters that help earn Gummies. But at least it’s quick.
What are your thoughts on the episode tie-in questline? Like fishing for free donuts? Thoughts on this Sunday’s THOH episode? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
Is thus over?
Did this tie in end already
Yes. Usually tie-ins end the Monday after the episode airs. However, if you started it the questline will remain usually for a month.
Always miss these. Both looked really cool. oh well.
I already had every intention of watching the episode, and after I did I was REALLY hoping to be able to unlock a Homer Godzilla character. I feel ripped off. Maybe as a prize in act 3? If not Godzilla, hopefully M’nster…. I live for THOH
So what happened with the pond nothing ever came out of mine? Am I missing something lol?
Nope nothing came out of it. Just a build up to get you to watch the show. But hey at least you got some free donuts 🙂
Are some people not receiving the Frink deal? A friend of mine did, but she didn’t do it since she is a freemium player, but I did not get the offer at all..
Read the post there are requirements to get it
Weird ending – I didn’t really understand the story…how did Homer doom the town?
Intentional to get you to watch on Sunday…
Oh, duh! I forgot it’s a tie-in! Really not on my A game this week. 🙁
It’s ok…it’s Friday 🙂
