It's not one scene. The Scouring of the Shire is an entire chapter. And the death of Saruman was different in the movie (although superficially caused by the same event). The whole aspect of the Shire not escaping the effects of the war was lost. But the ultimate timing of his death at the effective end of the war located in the Shire was a wasted opportunity of great symbolism.

And so rather than explain yourself about the Saruman characterization, you insult me. A clear sign that there isn't a good explanation. Not surprising.
