In Episode 17, we met Sean Kelley, a writer who set out to raise a couple
of pigs for the purpose of butchering them himself. He was so adamant about
that mission that he even named the pigs Lunch and Dinner. This episode
picks up at the point where Dinner had grown to over 300 pounds, and Sean
was finally ready to slaughter her.
