Top 10 The Simpsons Episodes with the Worst Ending

egnomac
An now to look at the flip side of things. For every good Simpsons episode ending there are going to be a fair share of bad endings. You know, those endings where nothing really gets resolved, come off as insulting or just plain make no sense. Note not all of the episode on the list are bad we're just looking at the ending.

The Top Ten

1 Miracle On Evergreen Terrace

Unable to get the town their money back the Simpsons return home and find everyone looting their home not wanting to stay mad at them they decide instead to break into their home and take all of their stuff leaving them with nothing but a wash rag which the family all fight over. - egnomac

Worst episode ever. And Season 9 was the worst season of the Golden Age (1-10).

2 The Principal and the Pauper

In a jump the shark moment its revealed that the man everyone knows as Seymour Skinner is actually an impostor who took the identity of a soldier he served with in Vietnam who returns home to reclaim his life, at the end of the episode they strap the real Seymour Skinner on a train and ride him out of town and making the impostor the official Seymour Skinner and they just sweep everything under the rug making the whole episode entirely pointless. - egnomac

Worst episode ever. Even the creator of The Simpsons despised this episode.
Non-canon

This episode, "Miracle on Evergreen Terrace", and "Lisa the Simpson" are the worst episodes of Season 9.
*("The Principal and the Pauper" is non-canon.)

3 Lisa Goes Gaga

Still better to watch than "The Principal and the Pauper" or "Miracle on Evergreen Terrace" or even "Lisa the Simpson".
The Simpsons best episode ever: "Homer's Enemy"
The Simpsons worst episode ever: "The Principal and the Pauper"

Aww the cry babies because Lady Gaga was in it.

4 Brother's Little Helper Brother's Little Helper

The ending really makes no sense after Bart goes completely bonkers stealing a tank and shoots down a Major League Baseball satellite contains documents on everyone in Springfield and Mark McGuire shows up distracts everyone with a long home run and steals the documents hiding them under his hat. - egnomac

No, this episode was hilarious from start to finish! - PositronWildhawk

You seriously LIKE THIS EPISODE?!?!?!? THIS EPISODE SUCKED. Okay, I know it's you opinion though. - ShaunFan04

5 The Frying Game

The ending is just one big cop out revealing that everything that Homer and Marge went through was all part of a prank reality show. - egnomac

6 Treehouse of Horror XVIII
7 The Squirt And The Whale
8 Kill Gil, Volumes I & II Kill Gil, Volumes I & II

Gil gets fired after he gives away a special doll to Lisa that was suppose to go his bosses daughter the Simpsons invite him to stay but he quickly overstays his welcome and when Marge is finally ready to tell him off he's already done instead of just being glad he's finally gone she tracks him down at his job where he's successful she tears into him for overstaying his welcome and gets him fired again. - egnomac

9 Day Of The Jackanapes
10 The Ziff Who Came to Dinner

The Contenders

11 Large Marge
12 Apocalypse Cow
13 Homer's Enemy Homer's Enemy

The episode was good but the ending really comes off as dark and mean spirited as Frank Grimes has a meltdown while trying to prove to everyone what an idiot Homer is and accidentally kills himself and during his funeral Homer while asleep asks Marge to change the channel and everyone laughs praising Homer as Frank Grimes casket is lowered as his funeral becomes an afterthought. - egnomac

More like the funniest ending. - PositronWildhawk

What the ending isn't bad at all! - ShaunFan04

14 Wild Barts Can't Be Broken

A curfew is put into affect to all the kids in Springfield thanks to Homer and his drunk friends destroying the school and the kids being blamed for it so the kids get back at them by revealing all of their secrets via radio and when the adults find out leading to a standoff between the two until all the senior citizens get tired of all the noise and impose a curfew for everyone under 70 as all of the seniors voted and Homer didn't. - egnomac

15 Flaming Moe's
16 The Boys of Bummer

Despite it's flaws, it's still a decent episode despite the cruelty.

Worst episode of Season 18.

17 Kiss Kiss Bang Bangalore
18 Three Men and a Comic Book Three Men and a Comic Book

Loved the episode but in the end you feel really bad for Bart, Millhouse, and Martin after putting their money together to buy the rare Radioactive Man #1 comic they end up fighting among themselves and the comic gets destroyed in a very hilarious and cruel way with it ending out in the rain as Santa's Little Helper tears it apart and just for kicks gets destroyed by lighting. - egnomac

I think the bad ending of this episode is supposed to reflect how pointless it was for the kids to fight over the comic. - Swellow

19 Trash of the Titans Trash of the Titans

After Homer carelessly dumps trash right under Springfield the trash begins rising up completely covering Springfield in garbage as a last resort the whole town is moved miles down the road and the old Springfield is left a complete dump as an Native American looks on in horror of the now trashed old Springfield. - egnomac

20 Little Girl in the Big Ten
21 Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part Two)

Canon ending: Maggie Simpson shot Mr. Burns.
Non-canon ending: Waylon Smithers shot Mr. Burns.

22 The Twisted World of Marge Simpson

That was hardly even an ending at all

23 Bye Bye Nerdie
24 My Big Fat Geek Wedding
25 The Wife Aquatic
