Blood Feud is the twenty-second and final episode of Season 2. It was originally broadcast on Fox in July 11, 1991. The episode was written by George Meyer and directed David Silverman. The episode includes the debut of the Olmec head Xtapolapocetl, which would become a common background prop in the Simpson home. It features several reference to the movie, Citizen Kane, and songs such as "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath.

SynopsisEdit

Homer discovers that Bart has a rare blood type that can save Mr. Burns' life, Homer convinces Bart to give blood (in the hopes that Burns will give the Simpsons a cash reward), but when all Mr. Burns gives Bart is a "Thank You" card, Homer writes a nasty letter to his boss...which ends up getting sent to Burns by Bart.

Full StoryEdit

Mr. Burns becomes deathly ill. He is diagnoses with hypohemia, and affliction that leaves a person without enough blood to sustain life. Desperate to save his boss, Smithers issues a plea to the plant's employees for a double-O-negative blood donor. Thinking Burns will reward him richly, Homer volunteers, but he does not have the right blood type. Bart happens to be a match, and Homer has the boy donate blood to his boss. After the transfusion, Burns is more alive than ever. He even decides to pen his autobiography.

Homer deems Burns' meager thank-you card to be an inadequate response to the gift of life. He immediately writes his millionaire boss a venomous letter, but Marge stops him from mailing it. The next morning, Homer is grateful that Marge's cooler head prevailed and goes to tear up the letter. Unable to the find the hate-filled note, he discovers that Bart has already mailed it. Homer tried unsuccessfully to retrieve the letter, but Burns sees it. Angered, Burns vows to make Homer's life miserable.

Xtapolapocetl (and Snowball II)

First, Mr. Burns signs Homer's pink slip, then he orders Smithers to have Homer beaten to a pulp, but Smithers refuses, explaining that he is unable to harm the man who saved his boss' life. Coming to his senses, Burns realizes the good deed the Simpsons have done, and buys them an extravagant present, a rare Olmec Indian head statue. Bart thinks it is cool, but Homer does not think it is a fitting reward. The family cannot decided on the moral of the store or even if it has one. They do however agree that is has been a memorable few days.
