IMPORTANT READ THIS BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING: Ok before I get into week 3, for the love of God READ THIS! Guys, I’m seriously about to lose my ever-lovin’ mind!
–IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE WITH THE PAGEANT STAGE GO HERE
-IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR THE GREYHOUND SLEIGH FOR SANTA’S LITTLE HELPER’S TASK, IT’S CURRENTLY NOT IN THE GAME! Relax, nothing is broken. It’ll unlock before the event is over.
So please, stop asking.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast which means it’s officially time to start Act 3 (week 3) of A Simpsons Christmas Special!
Now if you remember, week 2 ended with Marge declaring it was her turn to tell a story…because everyone loves a good romance!
Christmas is Canceled Pt. 4
Homer: *slow clap* Wow! What a story! I never could have predicted Officer Savage was a bad guy.
Lisa: That’s my point. There was nothing prior to the big reveal to indicate, however subtly, that–
Bart: Face it, Lisa. The public loved my story. And the ignorant masses are never wrong about these things.
Marge: I don’t know, that story was a little violent for me. There were so many car chases and explosions!
Homer: The bedrock of any great story is car chases and explosions. Aristotle said that.
Marge: What about a good romance? Everyone loves love.
Homer: The trick is to find the right amount of nudity. Brief enough that it doesn’t damage the children, but long enough that I give a damn.
(Please don’t ask me about this dialogue. This dialogue is what appears when you FINISH the week 2 questline. It does not appear when week 3 starts. So if you finished week 2 you already saw this, if you didn’t finish week 2 you didn’t see it yet and if you just finished week 2 seconds before week 3 hit you’ll see it…)
And now, here’s the kick off dialogue you’ll see this morning (and a look at what’s in store for Act 3)…
Christmas is Canceled Pt. 5
Homer: Marge, you’ve been watching an awful lot of Hallmark Channel. Promise me this won’t be one of those boring, cookie-cutter holiday TV romances.
Marge: “Boring”? What’s boring about watching C-list actors falling slowly in love over a surprise-free, two-hour slog? I could have phrased that better…
Homer: No, you’re right. Tell your story. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that marriage is a compromise. If there’s a second thing I’ve learned, it’s how to retreat into an interior fantasy world whenever things get dull around here.
Marge: Awww, Homie.
It’s true, I LOVE me some Hallmark movies. Nothing boring about them at all!
So, Marge’s in charge of the story this time around…here’s the synopsis from EA on Week 3…
Marge tells the story of a big city businesswoman who must return to her hometown, against the wishes of her fiancé who hates Christmas, who is played by Flanders, to help her family run their struggling Christmas tree farm. Marge arrives to discover that her former love, played by Homer, whom she abandoned to pursue her dreams seven years prior, has been working at the Christmas tree farm this whole time, and never gotten over her. Homer tries to convince Marge that he’s the man she should be with, but accidentally burns down the entire Christmas tree farm in his effort to impress her. Marge decides to get away from it all at a Christmas-themed inn, owned by Smithers, but is met there by Flanders, who is appalled to discover she’s begun to soften on the idea of Christmas. The Ghost of Christmas Past arrives and announces to Marge that she cannot marry Flanders. She asks for a sign that Homer is the right man for her instead, but the Ghost is unable to produce one. However, Homer arrives at the inn and Marge takes it as a sign that they’re meant to be together. Smithers then announces he must leave forever to take care of Mr. Burns, and gifts the Snowed Inn to Marge and Homer to run as a year-round Christmas-themed inn.
Ah, I just love a good

One important note on this week…
So Christmas is less than a week away. Traditionally we don’t post on Christmas, as we spend time with our families. And that tradition will continue this year. However, because we’re limited to a week with this week (since this week ends the day after Christmas) it’s going to be very tight trying to get all of the posts/info in time. Which means I’m going to have to break my other rule, and there will be game related content posted on Saturday. So keep your eyes on this site for a lot of posts each day, including Saturday.
I’m going to be coming at you hard and fast with content this week…so be ready!
FYI this also kinda sorta will apply for Week 4 as well…
And that’s it my friends. The details of week 3 of the 2018 Christmas event!
