Preacher Rewind 301: Bleeding Cool's Look Back at 'Angelville'

Credit: AMC

You've got to give AMC's Preacher credit for one thing: the show's Season 3 definitely didn't start quietly. From a flashback that gives a ton of backstory to Jesse's mother's time at Angelville with Madame L'Angelle (Betty Buckley), Jody (Jeremy Childs), and TC (Colin Cunnigham), and Jesse's (Dominic Cooper) throwdown "for old times" with Jody; to Tulip's (Ruth Negga) "sitcom-starring" time in Purgatory and creepy instructions from doG (yup) to "Get those…," the episode wasn't lacking energy – but was it worth the wait?

The 10-episode third season follows Jesse's quest for God which takes him back to the place he's been avoiding his whole life: home. Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised, and find old grudges and deadly obligations await them. With the help of his friends — and a few enemies — Jesse will need to escape his past…because the future of the world depends on it.
