This week’s episode of Preacher marks the return of Eugene aka Arseface. We also in this episode see the incident in which Eugene gets disfigured. One of the things that Preacher does so well is to find humor in some of its darkest moments. Even in is extremely dark scene the show finds a little bit of humor. The show’s version of Hell is very bleak as Eugene has to relive his worst nightmare over and over again. It also seems to only be the beginning of his nightmare.
On the other side Jessie and crew continue their hunt for God in New Orleans. This obviously doesn’t make Tulip happy as she is trying to stay far away from that place as possible. Their search for God in this episode has lead to some interesting (and humorous) places as he team separates.
Jessie continues his search for God alone going from night club to bar. When it seemed a little too convient that someone wouldn’t happen to point him in the right direction after randomly asking everyone where’s God. His search leads him to a lounge singer who seems to be in a little trouble but there more to the situation than it seems. There are more people looking for God than just Jessie and his crew.
The tension is also heavy in the episode because Jessie is still a little peeved about Tulip not wanting to marry him which lead to the separation of the team as Tulip and Cassidy looked for a place to stay. The standout in this scene is Cassidy’s “friend” Dennis who doesn’t seem to enjoy his company.
Overall a solid episode of Preacher that does a good job of fleshing out the world as well as a surprise at the end which should make next week’s episode all the more interesting.
Score 8.5 out of 10
