What can we expect from the upcoming episode?
The Simpsons season 34 episode 14 plot according to Rotten Tomatoes is as follows:
"When Carl is smitten by a beautiful Black woman, he looks into the roots of his own identity by discovering the origins of a mysterious rodeo buckle."
Talking about this, writer Loni Steele Sosthand admitted that this plotline was long overdue.
“It’s a more direct conversation of race than we’re used to having on The Simpsons. I had an exchange with Alex, and he expressed how much he identified with this story. He’s of Haitian descent, and he talked about growing up in a Jewish neighborhood in New York."
"It’s not literally what we’re doing with Carl, just as it’s not exactly like my experience [growing up multiracial], but it’s thematically about the assumptions we make about identity. It was interesting to get into it with this character. It really adds another layer to him.”
Carl is finally given an opportunity to explore his indigenous roots in the upcoming episode after he falls for a beautiful black woman. Intrigued by her ethnicity, he decides to look into the roots of his own origins by discovering the a mysterious rodeo buckle in the all-new episode.
