“Preacher” Season 4, Episode 9 “Overture”: Jesse vs. God, Round #2 – An Eye for an Eye [PREVIEW]

After weeks of waiting, Jesse Custer’s (Dominic Cooper) final sermon from “The Book of Genesis” is officially underway, with AMC‘s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher running its fourth and final season gauntlet. What’s the best way to put this? Let’s just say that even if you’re familiar with the original comic book series? You still wouldn’t be ready for what this season’s been offering…

Folks, we’re not gonna’ lie to ‘ya: there was a lot going on last epsiode. Our biggest takeaway from it all? Whether it’s God (Mark Harelik) dining on his right eye or Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) literally screwing him over yet again, we found ourselves getting pretty pi$$ed on Jesse’s behalf with the way everyone keeps screwing him over – but in the following preview for “Overture.” it looks like the rough stuff is just getting started:

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 also “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).
