After learning that he is suffering from multiple illnesses and has only a few weeks to live, Mr. Burns becomes distraught by the town's less-than-sensitive reaction to his announcement. Following an unexpected turn of events, Bart finds Mr. Burns weak and vulnerable in the wilderness and secretly takes him into the Simpsons' home. But when Homer and Marge learn about their new houseguest, they decide it's payback time, and Lisa, determined to stand up for Mr. Burns, learns that old habits die hard.

Inspired by Stephen King's novel "Under the Dome", Burns threatens to cover Springfield with a dome; Lenny informs him that it has already been done before. This is in reference to the plot of The Simpsons Movie (2007), when Homer's shenanigans cause the Environmental Protection Agency to cover Springfield with a dome. See more
Lou claims that no one thinks to dig themselves out from a dome placed over a city. However, this is not the case. In Stephen King's Under the Dome, there is a mention of the army trying and failing to dig the town out from the dome. This is especially relevant since Burns used Under the Dome as an example for his revenge. See more
