  • A local religious nut tries to ruin Halloween for everyone, but Hank saves the day by showing people that even a grown man can trick-or-treat for a good cause.

    In this episode, we get a further idea of Hank's own brand of conservatism- Texan practicality. He has an endearing uncomfortability about sex and toilet activities. He has a love for Texas that knows no bounds, to the point that his dog is named after Lyndon B. Johnson's wife. He never wastes money. He thinks that Dale's far-right notions are going way too far. And in Hilloween, we learn that he likes good, old-fashioned fun, and though his family is religious enough, they are not silly with it. Also, I think this episode shows that Hank is not afraid to be the first to speak out when something is just ridiculous.
