* MoralEventHorizon: At first, [[ReptilesAreAbhorrent Neal the snake]] merely wanted food, with respect for the law but no regard for who else would suffer in the process. [[spoiler: Ben convinced him to try fast food, which was so addictive and unhealthful that Neal nearly killed himself. After that, he made a point to lose enough weight for a predatory RoaringRampageOfRevenge -- planning to eat [[MisplacedRetribution not Ben]] but [[DisproportionateRetribution the entire family of his first intended prey]].]]
** AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Since Ben tried to talk Neal out of eating Brayden by noting all the dependents who'd be left behind, maybe this is [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Neal's idea of mercy]].
