That will be followed by a quick 6s task for Mr. Burns.

And that’s it…you’ll then see this message:

And that’s it.  All I’ve come across anyway.  Really short, really simple.  Really just a reminder to watch on Sunday…and a nice way to get the Mansion if you missed it during Superheroes.

Oh and this update should fix the Princess Nerd questline issue for Martin and the Ice Castle.

That’s it my friends.  What are your thoughts on this super short task for Sunday’s episode?  Think there will be more to it?  Excited for a full 1hr episode?  Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
