Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have just delivered one of the best episodes of “Preacher” yet but with a sacrifice. The entire first season was a secret prequel and showed that the duo would be taking their sweet time unrolling the mythology behind everything. The series deviates from the comics quite a bit, yet still uses them as a reference point. Last night’s episode was information dump, a riveting one at that. It felt like it skipped several turns and jumped into one of the biggest comic reveals – SPOILER – that The Grail, and Herr Starr, are harboring the Messiah. Had I not been privy to the original comics, the introduction of the Messiah – or should I say Humperdido, would have been jolting. You see, centuries of inbreeding have caused Humperdido to be, well, an unlikely ruler to the world. Even Starr is unconvinced and has turned his attention to Jesse, hoping to sway him into taking over the world with him.
Watching good and evil converse and work together for an entire episode made for some hypnotizing television, and it only got better watching Tulip break down. It was an emotional hour that’s really set the stage for the final three episodes. With that, here’s not only a sneak peek clip from Episode 11, ‘Backdoors’, but also a trailer. In the episode, the mission begins to alienate Tulip and Cassidy; Tulip receives advice about her relationship with Jesse; Cassidy begins to doubt Denis. The “best friends club” is on the brink of exploding…
