In the end, it was always going to be this way.
After 12 years and over 400 hours of TV time, The Simpsons ended with a bittersweet, emotional episode where Homer's dad dies in the most un-Homer Simpson way possible — he passed away peacefully, surrounded by family members who were holding him in his final moments.
And while Homer had always been openly hostile toward his father over the years — especially after finding out Grandpa was a Nazi — it was clear that he actually loved him. This was seen when Homer and Grandpa spent time together, and during an emotional scene where Homer read him a bedtime story.
But as we've grown up with The Simpsons, this episode felt different than any other in the show's history. As a diehard fan of the series, this was one of those episodes that I knew would be the most powerful one yet — and it lived up to my expectations.
