We all know Leela is a sewer mutant, in fact the least mutated one.  I have a theory about Leela's boil 'Susan'.  Could singing or talking boils be something common for sewer mutants to get?  Something to ponder.

'Susan Boil' is going to vanish into the 'recognised as canon but ignored' category...

Doubt it. "Attack of the Killer App" is going to have several lead-ins for future episodes this season. For example, for the summer season finale, we're going to likely see that the "talking part of Leela's body" is none other than the "recognized as canon but ignored" Susan Boil. And next week's episode "Lethal Inspection" was foreshadowed in the beginning of the "Attack of the Killer App" with Flexo's short line on all bending units like him and Bender being recalled.

Not sure what angle El-Man's approaching this from, but in terms of my porn fanart, _I'm_ totally ignoring it...  tongue

... what?  I have my highly sincere doubts that Flexo's line is a foreshadowing to "Lethal Inspection".  What we know about about "Lethal Inspection" has nothing to do with the reason Flexo was being 'recalled'.

In addition, why would the Boil return in the season finale?  That ... makes no sense to me.

What I meant was, in the same realm as Leela's elbow talons, and other minor character details. Canon, but very likely never mentioned again. And Marcus nailed it. smile

Think you're mixing your data there. 6ACV03 WAS the "talking part of Leela's body" episode.

I'm standing by my word on this.

Can you tease some other story lines?
One thing that was beneficial to being off the air for a while was that society generated a few story lines for us. Weíre going to see our versions of Twitter and iPhones in the future, as Fry posts embarrassing videos of Leela online. The difference is, in our version of the iPhone, the iPhone is implanted in your eye. Itís a tiny hovering screen in front of you and itís even more annoying than the real iPhone. One of my favorite episodes of the year is one where Bender tries to pass a ballot initiative called Proposition Infinity to legalize robosexual marriage, which is the marriage between a robot and a human. Itís taboo and illegal in the future, and thereís going to be a very shocking romance between Bender and one of our female characters. [In another episode], the Professor invents a time machine that only goes forward in time. Once they start going, there is no hope of return. And the initial goal is to just go a minute forward into the future and test it out, but the Professor trips and theyíre immediately 1,000 years in the future with nowhere to go but forward. So they spend the episode going further and further through all future history trying to find the technology for a backward time machine.

Guest voices?
Katee Sackhoff is playing a visitor to Comic-Con who has a fetish for aliens. She threw herself into the role in an impressive fashion. In our 100th episode special,  Mark Mothersbaugh and Devo campaign for mutant rights ó Leelaís parents are second-class, mutant citizens who live underground in the sewers. The members of Devo have mutated over the years, and Mark Mothersbaugh helps out in their campaign for equality. Craig Ferguson has the most remarkable guest role of the year: He is playing a talking part of Leelaís body. We discover that Leela has a little more to her being a mutant than we knew about. Chris Elliott is playing a very persnickety space probe that goes around censoring things that it thinks are indecent, and he finds nudity both interesting and offensive. George Takei will be back. Iím proud to announce that Al Gore will be rejoining us in our environmental-themed holiday episode [airing next season]. He will help explain the future versions of Christmas, Robanukah, and Kwanza, along with Coolio, a natural pairing. Patton Oswalt will appear in next season, playing a character called Unattractive Giant Monster. I would be remiss if I didnít mention the first appearance by David X. Cohen, in the Comic-Con episode. The heads of Matt Groening and David X. Cohen will appear on a panel of writers for the new show that Matt Groening has created in the Year 3010.

Meh, too lazy to discuss in detail why. Figure it out for yourselves.

Do you want me to go in detail?  Okay, fine.

Now, as I understand your wording (and do correct me if I am wrong) is that "the talking body part of Leela" have not yet been revealed and that it will be revealed in "The Mutants Are Revolting" (this summer season's finale).  Correct?

So let me quote you this from the very interview you linked:

Quote

Craig Ferguson is credited for "Attack of the Killer App".  He has made his appearance.  I have my doubts he will appear twice this season.  I do not recall that ever happening in the history of Futurama.  Not even Tom Kenny or Phil Hendrie.

I realise that this have not stopped the writers from reintroducing characters that used to be voiced by guest actors, but in most cases, their reappearances are very short and usually just one liners (with the noticeable exceptions of Dixie and Robot Santa), so without Ferguson, I have my doubts we will ever see the boil again.

Could we all just pretend that never happened?

As a pedant, I can unfortunately not.  Ignoring the Star Wars prequels and the Matrix sequels is hard enough.

Let me try at this again.

I thought that the talking boil would become the reason why Leela is sent to the sewers with all the other mutants. I somehow have that idea, which if it is false it would be due to how I "flowed with understanding" of the interview. How else would she be sent down to the sewers? That thing was pretty repulsive that it deserved to be hidden from public eye.

But the very same episode established that no one cared about it.  Why would they suddenly care about it 8 episodes later?

I think the plot of the season finale is going to be Leela seeing her 'fellow' mutants being treated horribly by the 'surfacers', and decides 'enough is enough', and leads a revolution towards the surface.  Makes perfect sense, if you think about it.  In "Leela's Homeworld" she has the same issues with Bender's treatments of them.
