Ending description (non-canon)

Abraham Simpson and Helen Shyres (Edie McClurg) had fought before. Although Abraham was humiliated by his defeat at her hands so many years ago, this time the outcome would be different... Abraham had stolen Margaret White's wedding ring at the request of his son Homer Simpson. With the ring in his possession, Abraham came to realization that he has now in total control of the revived unstoppable army. Rather than hand the ring and the army over to his son Homer, Abraham kept them for himself, and used the army to ambush and kill Helen Shyres, thus ending their fierce rivalry once and for all.
