"Hurricane Neddy" is too awesome of an episode. It delves into the mind of a man punished as a child.
5 June 2011 | by (Planet Namek) – See all my reviews

Ned Flanders is revealed to have psychotic episodes due to a treatment from his earlier years. Flanders' parents brought him to Dr. Foster, who treated him by a systematic spanking that results in his saying utter gibberish every time he talks to people. However, this prevented him from cursing or being mean. In the process of eliminating his need to be destructive and cruel, Flanders' actual anger is built up inside until he explodes due to this accumulating anger. After his house is torn to shreds by a hurricane, he is left to contemplate his life and question God's will. Flanders erupts in front of the town after holding back all those years. He drives to the mental institution and checks in for help. Dr. Foster suggests that he tells people whenever he gets mad rather than holding it bottled up inside. This treatment proves more effective after Homer pays him a visit in the mental institute in an attempt to anger him and provoke his emotions per request of Dr. Foster. Afterwards, Ned is released from the institute and promises to express his anger accordingly to avoid a catastrophic outburst. Awesome writing, very moral and a clear delving in the human mind.
