In the episode, a ray of flaming light scorches through Springfield, spreading havoc and destroying entire structures with flames.
The fires, however, were not caused by a directed-energy weapon, but by the presentation of a new monument in town constructed of a substance that reflected sunlight, triggering the fires.

The Simpsons, on the other hand, appears to have foreseen certain future events, such as Elon Musk renaming Twitter to X and Greta Gerwig’s ‘feminist’ reworking of Barbie in the Margot Robbie picture.
In June, fans were taken aback when a 2016 episode appeared to presage the Titanic submersible disaster, following Homer as he lost consciousness and oxygen on an underwater journey.
The long-running show also foreshadowed Cypress Hill’s London Symphony Orchestra appearance over three decades after the joke was made on the comedy.
The Simpsons is available to stream on Disney Plus
