So stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish), The Angel of Death (Erinn Ruth), Hitler (Noah Taylor), a member of an Illuminati-like clandestine organization, and a man whose failed suicide attempt left him with an arse for a face are waiting for a bus to Hell…
Except there’s no punchline — that’s where things stand for Featherstone (Julie Ann Emery), Eugene (Ian Colletti), and their travelling mates as we crash into AMC‘s Preacher season 3, episode 9, ‘Schwanzkopf’. That situation alone would be more than enough for an entire episode; as we can see from the trailer and sneak preview below, a bus ride to Hell seems like a vacation compared to Jesse’s (Dominic Cooper) one-on-one with the Allfather (Jonny Coyne) and Cassidy’s (Joseph Gilgun) painful attempts to expose Eccarius (Adam Croasdell).
And leave it to Tulip (Ruth Negga) to look The Angel of Death in the eye and call her “Satan’s bitch”…
Preacher s03e09 ‘Schwanzkopf’: Divided and trapped, Tulip, Jesse and Cassidy battle old friends, new enemies and loved ones to escape certain death – or worse.
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.
Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, Malcolm Barrett, and Noah Taylor also return for the series’ third season, joined by new series regulars Betty Buckley (Supergirl, Split), Colin Cunningham (Blood Drive, Falling Skies), Jeremy Childs (The Last Castle, Nashville), Liz McGeever (Star, Nashville), Jonny Coyne (Turn, Alcatraz), Adam Croasdell (Reign), and Prema Cruz (Mozart in the Jungle).
