Storyline

Marge's sister Selma has been writing to Sideshow Bob whilst he was in prison, and, on his release announces their intention to marry. Bart is appalled. Unlike everybody else he is unconvinced that Bob has changed and believes that, as Selma has come into money, he will attempt to murder her on their honeymoon. And he is right. Putting two and two together Bart works out how Bob plans to blow Selma up and manages to thwart him in time. Written by don @ minifie-1

Sideshow Bob Returns!
21 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twenty-first episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it's a highlight of the season, thanks to the return of the villain Sideshow Bob who last time we saw him, tried to frame Krusty. But this time the unthinkable happens as he begins a harmless romance with Selma.....or is he?

In this episode, "Black Widower," Selma and Bob began to write to each other while Bob was in prison. When Bob was released, he plans to marry Selma. While everyone is convinced that Bob has changed, Bart is not too sure. Eventually, Bart undercovers a dastardly plan in which Bob will try to murder Selma, so he steps in to try to save the day.

Overall, another excellent episode and it's pretty tense at times, actually. It's still funny, and the romance between Selma and Bob is well-developed and the best part of the episode. I also loved the references to The Elephant Man and Psycho. I rate this episode 9/10.
