Synopsis for "Americarnivore (Part III)"
Kara is bound and gagged, tied to a chair inside a small enclosing in the Travis County sewer system. The members of the Hewitt family mill about, conducting business as if nothing was amiss. Old Monty Hewitt helps Tommy "Leatherface" Hewitt with his prosthetic arm, Zeke Hewitt jumps around, making loud noises, and Shiloh Hewitt inspects Kara with great interest. Luda May admonishes young Jedidiah for "playing with the food". Unable to deal with the horror, Kara loses consciousness again.
Meanwhile, Kim and Marcus walk outside the Blair Meat plant. Kim is disgusted over the tour that slaughterman Hank recently provided them and stomps off towards the news van. They soon discover that Kim is missing. Reluctantly, they return to the plant, believing that she may have gone inside. While exploring one of the walk-in refrigeration units, they are stunned when Hank leaps out and attacks Marcus with a cattle prod. Kim begins running in terror, but Hank quickly catches up to her.
At the Fuller Gas Stop, the F.B.I. agents make preparations for the next leg of their investigation. Baines wants to hunt the killers down and take them out with extreme prejudice, but Agent Hooper insists that the team should wait for back-up. Baines reveals that his niece Pepper was one of the five youths slain in the '73 massacre, and that he will do everything in his power to bring her killers to justice. He is not waiting for back-up.
Back at the meat plant, Hank ties Kim to a meat hook and forces her to watch as he slaughters Marcus. He executes him using the exact same methods that he uses when slaughtering livestock. He slits his throat, bleeds him out then tosses him (still alive) into a huge vat of boiling water. As Hank gets to the rendering stage of his process, Kim manages to free herself and begins running.
Meanwhile, Agent Baines returns to the tunnels and continues his hunt. Agent Hooper follows him, hoping to calm his colleague down, but Baines is committed. They find one of the family members, Zeke Hewitt, and open fire. Zeke flees deeper into the tunnel.
