This week’s episode of Preacher started in a very interesting way to say the least. Let me start off by saying it’s amazing what this show is gettin away with. From having a character who has a face that looks like an asshole to A sympathetic Hitler. This episode pushes it further by having an awkwardly long 2 minute sex scene with Jesus. Yes that Jesus. It’s interesting how he was portrayed in the way how while he was duty bound he also had wants and needs and a dirty little secret.
On the Preacher side of the story, Jessie teams up with Herr Starr to find out more information on were God is. The dynamic between the two is very good as Herr admits that he wanted to kill Jessie but realized it maybe better to have him work with him for now. Herr proceeds to drop a bomb shell on Jessie. Apparently they have the 25th great grandson of Jesus who is the Messiah. Jessie ‘s meeting with the Messiah wasn’t what he expected in the least bit as Humperdo seems more like a mentality challenge person than ancestor to god.
The story with Cassidy and Dennis is interesting because he is falling further into the dark side as Cassidy. It may come a point where Dennis Tulip seems to be having a hard time copping with Jessie and was finding comfort in playing Guitar Hero with Jane. Well that was until Jane made the mistake of talking about the robbery that Tulip never told her about. The plan she came up with to take her off the trail seemed to be a good one as well. But this won’t last for long as it seems this will come to ahead real soon.
Overall a solid episode that’s more or less a setup for the next episode.
Score 7.2 out of 10
