From Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga), Jody (Jeremy Childs), and TC’s (Colin Cunningham) little “Werewolves of London”-sound-tracked brawl that led to Jesse’s time in the box; to Herr Starr’s (Pip Torrens) issues with a song-n-dance Humperdoo (Tyson Ritter) and an over-eager Allfather (Jonny Coyne); to Cassidy’s (Joseph Gilgun) post-“blind date” run in with a group of real Interview with a Vampire-type vampires, there was a righteous amount of stuff to unpack in the fifth episode of AMC‘s Preacher – and we haven’t touched upon the whole “if Gran’ma (Betty Buckley) dies, Tulip dies” matter…

PREACHER is a dramatic thrill ride that follows West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his badass girlfriend Tulip (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a road trip to find God and are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

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.
