Back in September, we learned that The Simpsons would finally be letting Waylon Smithers (voiced by Harry Shearer), Mr. Burns trusty right-hand man, out of the closet sometime this season.

Well Sunday night, we FINALLY got the episode that addressed Smithers' love life!

In The Burns Cage, Homer, Lenny, & Carl hear their Springfield Power Plant boss's assistant singing to himself about his love of Mr. Burns — so they decide to try to get him laid, mostly to make him a more tolerable coworker!

It's a classic sitcom premise — the fact Smithers is gay isn't made shocking at all! We guess The Simpsons know what year it is! Ha!

After some failed attempts, Homer takes to Grindr to invite all of Springfield's gay citizens to a big party at the Simpsons' home, just for Smithers. Of course this was a great opportunity for a George Takei cameo as he asked suitors if:

"they'd mind hearing about Bill Shatner horror stories."

Smithers ends up falling for longtime recurring character Julio (voiced by Hank Azaria). So cute!

Sadly, things eventually fall apart between the new couple as Shearer's character returns to Mr. Burns' side — he'll never be over his one true love.

The wealthy businessman needs his right hand man too; he attempts to buy Waylon back with a million dollar check! But Smithers is perfectly content with an "excellent" performance review.

What did you think about Smithers coming out ep?

Make sure you check out The Simpsons when it airs on FOX on Sundays at 8 p.m. EST!
