After the big reveal of last week that the Messiah of Herr Starr’s group is a bumbling idiot it seems fit that they would be looking for a new one. It’s also fitting that the they would want Jessie to be there new leader since he got a glimpse of Jessie’s power first hand. The conversation between him and Jessie was just as good as the previous episode as both characters have great chemistry together. Pulling out all the stops to show why Jessie should join him, including letting him hear all of his prayers to God. In particular the ones thanking God for killing his father. But it didn’t work as Jessie made in stick it where the sun don’t shine. That decision may come back to bite em because they released the Killer of Saints.
On the Jessie side of things, it seems that everything is finally taking a toll on everyone. The lies and everything that comes with it, including that the Killer of Saints is still very much a threat. It seems the one thing that everyone needed at this point was a vacation. Jessie was almost all for it until he got another lead on GOD and ran off again but this time no one was willing to help. Tulip went on a trip to melt the guns of the Killer of Saint to no avail and Cassidy came to the realization that he has feelings for her. I wonder how will this play into future episodes as we are only 2 episodes away from the season finale.
The show finally got back to the story with Eugene and Hitler. The show continues to amaze me on how well of a job they have done to make Hitler a sympathetic character. Giving a backstory of a man who was kicked around until he just lost it. Before he was nothing but someone who lack a spine but with one bad day it all changed. All of it lead up to the big moment where Hilter helped Eugene escape before they found out that he didn’t belong there. All in all a solid episode that’s hopefully leading to a big finale.
Score 8.0 out of 10
