Preacher’s back and as gory as ever! From the opening scene to the final minutes of the hour, it did not show any signs of holding back as Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy continue their search for God.
The hour kicked off with a police chase to the tune of “Come on, Eileen” that was great and so very Preacher-like. As they get stopped but a large group of cops, Jesse decides to have some fun and use what he’s now calling “Genesis” on them. That fun soon stops as he realizes that they are all under attack by something with incredibly powerful bullets which means the Cowboy’s back. Most of the hour is spent with the trio on the run and narrowly missing the mysterious and terrifying Cowboy’s presence as they continue trying to look for hints as to where God could be since he’s missing and all.
The Cowboy’s still on the hunt, and he’s leaving a trail of body parts and people Jesse has interacted with, from the cops that were chasing the trio down to Mike, a close family friend of Jesse’s parents.
While all of this is going on, Tulip and Cassidy are still hiding things from Jesse for seemingly Cassidy’s sake, giving the trio something else to be concerned about when not worrying about the search for God and the Saint of Killers (aka the Cowboy). The secret also provided for a few funny moments among Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy, though.
The three sharing the same bed as Cassidy tries to tell Jesse and Tulip that they can continue with whatever they had planned. The awkwardness played so well into the comedic aspect of the scene. The scene gives way to a steamy reunion for Jesse and Tulip in one room as Cassidy stays up watching infomercials in the next room.
The fun is cut short though as Jesse is outside of the motel and unknowingly is directly in the sights of Saint of Killers as the barrel of his gun is drawn on him from a distance.
From the first hour of the season, it already seems like Preacher shaping up to really own the show’s uniqueness bringing us the gory, the weird, the inappropriately (and appropriately) hilarious, mixed in with a little bit of a deeper look into Jesse and Tulip’s relationship. I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of the season turns out.
What did you think of the premiere? Was it too much? Are you looking forward to seeing the trio’s search for God? How about that Saint of Killers?
