It's election day in Springfield, and people are voting at Springfield Elementary. Marge is calling Homer to his duty to vote, while he's on his hammock. Homer gets into the cabin, trying to decide, when Lisa appears, making him think about all that happened on Donald Trump's period of presidency, but he just dreamed of voting, and one year after, the whole city is burning, and Homer is standing on his house armed. While Hans Moleman gets ambushed by a robot, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse appear over the city.
Marge asks Bart if he's boxing his toys to sell for charity, and Bart says he's saying good bye to them, but Bart has other plans: he destroys them in many possible ways, between explosions and distortions. When he is done, Marge gives him a Radioactive Man toy.
When Bart leaves the new toy alone, he comes to life, and Krusty's doll shows him what happened to all the other toys. Bart then plays with both, putting Radioactive Man in a microwave, destroying it. The other toys reunite to form a plan to revenge him after a funeral in his honor.
The toys drag Bart out of the door and in a room, where they reveal themselves to be alive and kill him, using plastic surgery done by Dr. Malibu Stacy. They transformed him into a toy and left him at the tree in front of the house, where Lisa find hims.
Into the Homer-verse
Homer finds a machine in it, but when it doesn't accept his quarter in the USB port, he tackles it, making it explode, and from it, multiple Homers appear, from different universes. Next on Channel 6 News, Kent Brockman shows various results of the 6 Homers in town.
Marge opens a can of Duff Beer to bring them home, and Lisa explains with a song how Homer opened a hole in the space-time continuum. When Bart jokes around him, Homer tries to strangle him, only to find himself transforming into more Homers.
Lisa realizes what's happening and how the situation could turn tragic, so she tells the Homer to recreate the explosion that brought them here to fix it, but Mr. Burns stops them, saying they'd be the ultimate form of cheap undocumented labor, with a vomiting frog as prize for it.
The Homer refuses, so Burns bring out his and Smithers alternates and a fight begins, leaving the Homers dead, but when Burns discovers in Smithers Noir's universe he's Smithers' assistant, Burns sends them back into the machine. In the end Marge is left with Homer Noir, the only one she wanted, but he transforms into Green cat Homer and escapes.
Be Nine, Rewind
It's Lisa's 9th birthday, half way to adulthood. When she comes down to the party, Sherri and Terri makes her realize it's a party for losers, and asks for somebody to kill her, when a car comes through the window hitting her.
Nelson grabs her arm and brings her under Bart's treehouse, when they get crushed by it. She wakes up again at the start, getting angry and saying she can solve it, but that causes the roof to fall on her, killing her again. She this time knocks on her desk softly, but knocks the mirror on herself.
On the next return, Nelson reveals himself to be a returner too, but he falls in a woodchipper when trying to high-five her. She kills herself too upon realizing she needs to return so Nelson could live but he tells her too late that there's an alternative.
More deaths happen, by being burnt by the cake's candles, to stabbing themselves with the knife, and then crushed by the air conditioner. They find out that the only way to solve the loop is to get help from Comic Book Guy. He proposes a series of solutions based on movies but they tried all of them.
In the end they find out that the only way is to kill Gil before he could crash into the house, so they throw him a brick and succeed. Lisa returns home to celebrate her birthday without consequences, except for Ralph's head being turned the opposite direction.
