Now that Gran’ma Marie L’Angell (Betty Buckley) has held up her end of her bargain with Jesse (Dominic Cooper) by bringing Tulip (Ruth Negga) back to the land of the living, it’s time for Jesse to do what’s right because “a deal’s a deal.” Of course, there’s always Jesse’s “Plan B”: get out of the deal by unleashing one set of “big bads” (The Grail) on another (The L’Angells), picking off whoever’s left standing; grab some supplies; go back to searching for doG.

What could go wrong…right?

Yeah…remember this is Preacher. You know things don’t ever end up going off as planned. Did you really think this was going to be any different?

Just to be clear… I’ll be covering some themes and takeaways involving major and minor plot points from the episode, so keep that in mind. Definitely not looking for pitchforks and torches outside my apartment so spoiler warnings!
