â€œIn Meatroâ€ takes us back to the Holler after the events of season two, Hulan (Patton Oswalt) is quite calm holding his manhood in his hand talking with Hoss in the TV about stapling it back where it belongs, but that is just the beginning of the madness. With his babymaker in his hand, Hurlan is asked to rob a sperm bank where Hoss has some old sperm stocked up. Hurlan being the only innocent in the Holler (the bar for innocence really isnâ€™t that high here) canâ€™t muster up the courage to rob a (sperm) bank, his all knowing father suggests he go into his drawer and take a hit of the most powerful substance in the Holler, pure uncut blood of a black man that will instill the courage he needs to rob the bank. Hurlan being Hurlan blows instead of inhaling and must pursue the flying sphere of blood throughout the Holler.
While Hurlan tries to find red liquid courage, Sheriff, played by â€œ30 Rockâ€ actor Scott Adsit replacing Joseph Sikora, is informed by his wife Hambrosia (Heather Lawless) that Meemaw (Judith Roberts) believes it is time she had a baby. Sheriff is excited to hear they are going the surrogate route with Hambrosiaâ€™s sister, Hurshe, but much to his dismay it will be surgically done. After what is probably the strangest artificial insemination ever conceived, Hurshe gives birth to a glowing worm, which she of course exploits and stars selling the baby wormâ€™s glowing love instead of hers.
With dreams of buying a singing bass, Hurshe has no intentions of giving the baby to her sister. As this happensâ€”is trying to capture the black manâ€™s blood with a trap that consists of grape soda, fried chicken and watermelon, really the only way to lure in some blood in the Hollerâ€”cut back to Hurshe, as she now has a house filled with singing basses.
This new love she is slanging is all the rage in the Holler, until it is stolen by Hambrosiaâ€”her excitement about raising the baby right is short-lived, when Sheriff walks in and she hides the baby in a pot that he immediately cranks up the heat on that is later eaten by Hursheâ€”because nothing does not get eaten in the Holler, the meal is subsequently diarrheaâ€™d out at Hursheâ€™s home.
Now, after all this madnessâ€”Hurlan has given up his search of that courage he needs, but as soon as he gives up, there is the black manâ€™s blood staring him in the faceâ€¦with a knife sticking Hurlan up. Switch to Hambrosia talking to Meemaw â€“ who is explaining her inexplicable mortality, and the impossible reality of the Holler, Hambrosia quickly realizes that her baby is Meemawâ€™s vesselâ€”as soon as this revelation hits Hambrosia, a butterfly with confederate flag wings emerges from Hersheeâ€™s toilet, warning of the Comening.
The season three opener of â€œThe Heart, She Hollerâ€ was exactly what fans have come to expect from the horrifically hilarious Adult Swim series. Itâ€™s hard not to break out laughing when Hoss casually asks Hurshe to get his crack pipe from the deskâ€”it is also extremely difficult to not marvel at the dialogue, which is unique in the sense that the writers have crafted a language that can only exist in the Holler. Itâ€™ll be interesting to see as the calamity known as the Comening begins to unfold this season and what gore filled shenanigans itâ€™ll put the people of the Holler in.
