Episode Summary

Meat Is Murder
Ta's uncle wants the lads to dispose of his dead cow called Lou, Lou Bell. After much bartering, the boys agree on £240 to do the job. They are about to bury it when Wardrobe has a brainwave. They'll chop up the cow and sell it as dog meat at greyhound tracks and kennels. Shay doesn't think that it's a good idea to chop up Lou, Lou Bell and is left with her head. Shay is finding it difficult to sell his share and ropes in his friend Hoker to help. Unbeknown to Shay, Hoker passes it off as prime beef fit for human consumption and sells it to the local butcher, Bap. Shortly afterwards Hoker gets beaten up for using fraudulent notes in an amusement hall. Shay is still left with with Lou, Lou Bell's head so he and Hoker take it to a field and lay it to rest. Later that night, Hoker, wanting to get revenge, goes back to the field and picks up the cow's head and places it in the bed belonging to the man that beat him up. When Ta is in seeing Una in the hairdressers he finds out on the local news that Lou, Lou Bell was part of a herd infected with foot and mouth. The boys don't panic as they believe meat wouldn't do dogs any harm but Shay confesses that he gave his share to Hoker and he sold it to Bap the Butcher. The lads race against time to retrieve the dodgy beef before anyone eats it but they are too late. Bap sold some of the meat to a local boxer and also gave a bit to Crazy Horse. They manage to rescue the infected steak from the boxer's house and then race round to Crazy Horse's flat only to find him stretched out on the floor. Wardrobe tries to resuscitate him but to no avail. The boys do a runner from the flat and call an ambulance. Minutes later, Crazy Horse opens his eyes as he comes around from his severe hangover.moreless
