OK, guys, I swear I’m not making this up… I was watching an episode of King of the Hill on Adult Swim that has me flabbergasted.
The episode began fairly normal with Peggy causing Leanne to get fired from her job as a waitress. She then ends up enrolling Leanna in a course at the local college for entrepreneurship where the public speaker ends up asking her out. Apparently, the guy owns a pork production plant.
Eventually, he asks her to move to his mansion with him. She begins to notice weird behavior as the guy starts forcing her to wear the same dress style everyday. One morning, she wakes up to having her hair dyed and braided.
She ends up finding a shrine to his parents in some room in the house. Apparently, he was trying to force her to dress like his dead mother when she was younger based on an ad in an old magazine for the company. He then asks her to marry some guy he also had living at the mansion who looked like his dead father, feeling that this would “complete” his family.
Naturally she’s freaked out and tries to run from him. She ends up in the slaughter house where he is chasing her. She manages to escape when he gets knocked out and then ends up getting impaled by a spike to kill the pigs. Then it’s implied that he is ground up as his body goes through the machines.
Now…It wasn’t really the very strange - almost disturbing turn - of events that has me staring at my screen… It’s the fact that no one cares that this guy is dead. Seriously! Peggy is just pulling Leanna aside saying she’s proud of the fact that Leanna made her own decision to overcome a situation; no one bothers to call the police about the death nor do they even seem horrified at the fact this guy was just ground up right in front of their eyes.
