“Preacher” Season 4, Episode 3 “Deviant”: Welcome to “DeSade’s House of Entertainment,” Jesse! [PREVIEW]

After weeks of waiting, Jesse Custer’s (Dominic Cooper) final sermon from “The Book of Genesis” has officially begun, with AMC‘s series adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher – unleashed upon viewers this past Sunday. By the end of the two-hour opener, we learned that God (Mark Harelik) and Herr Starr (Pip Torrens) “master plan” involves some serious suffering for Jesse. Meanwhile, Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) can’t decide if they want to be inside or outside Masada – though we got a cliffhanger ending that finally put them both in the same place (…that’s a good thing, right?).

Well, it doesn’t look like things are getting any easier in next episode “Deviant” for our heroes, either. Cassidy continues trying to purge his pain and guilt via uber-torturerFrankie (Lachy Hulme), while Tulip goes Die Hard inside Masada – with Featherstone (Julie Ann Emery) still on her trail.

And as we’re about to see, Jesse’s mission gets side-tracked (again) by a “rescue mission” at DeSade’s House of Entertainment – which seems off to a pretty good start.

Or does it just seem… “off”?

While all of that’s going on? Eugene (Ian Colletti) and The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish).

Yup. You read that right… so let’s see how that goes in the following preview:

As our story inches closer to the finale, God’s endgame for the universe begins to click into place. Trapped between heavenly prophecies, hellish prisons, and all-out nuclear war, Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy make their bloody way to the Most High. Whether they can reach God in time — or whether all this carnage is part of His divine plan — will soon be revealed as PREACHER barrels towards the end of the world.

So what made the two-hour season premiere of AMC’s Preacher particularly special for us? Watching Emery up her “badass” level to a solid “11” with some sick fight scenes, serious “auto fu,” and one of the best Rocky the Flying Squirrel imitations we’ve ever see – and we’re not even coming close to doing her justice. While she was doing all of that that onscreen, Emery was “hijacking” Bleeding Cool‘s Twitter account to take questions and offer some amazing behind-the-scenes perspectives on the series’ production (seriously, the wire work video for the flying suit scene alone is worth a visit – which you can do here).
