Smithers: Keep It In The Closet

Springfield's most confirmed bachelor Waylon Smithers will finally come out to the withered object of his affection, Mr. Burns, in the next episode of The Simpsons, "The Burns Cage."

But Mr. Burns, being the oldest man alive, has remained either oblivious or completely ignorant to Smithers's feelings—until episode 17 of season 27. According to the episode's official synopsis:
When Smithers is devastated by Burns' lack of affection towards him, Homer makes it his mission to find him a boyfriend. Meanwhile, after Bart orchestrates the removal of the lead in the school's stage production of Casablanca, Milhouse serves as a terrible understudy, which frustrates his co-star, Lisa.
“In Springfield now, most people know he’s gay, but obviously Burns doesn’t,” executive producer Al Jean told TV Line last September. “We deal with that in two episodes.…We actually do a lot with Smithers this year; he gets fed up with Burns not appreciating him and considers his options.” ...



The whole point of Smithers is he's in thecloset.

This is as dumb as making Homer Simpson smart.
