Preacher (S03E10) “The Light Above”

Starting off the Preacher finale right, with a proper flashback. It seems as though Jesse (Dominic Cooper) has been part of a much larger game, for longer than he can remember. The devil (Jason Douglas) and God (Mark Harelik), forever watching his every move. Perhaps everything that has happened up to this point hasn’t been by chance, but by a greater design. Spoilers lay beyond this point, so beware. 

The episode doesn’t waste any time getting into debauchery and mayhem. It doesn’t take long to fall into the psychotic pattern this show seems to have, it’s something that keeps viewers tuned in. Tulip (Ruth Negga) seems to be part of the bigger picture and isn’t willing to give up just yet. It’s great having such a strong and dynamic female lead, fearless and unapologetic. Especially when killing Nazis.

Each character is really coming into their own, this season has opened up an endless array of possibilities. Eugene (Ian Colletti) is finally standing up for himself, it took all this time, but he has been idle for too long. The tables turn in his favor though, acquiring a very powerful ally along the way, The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) himself. Not even Satan is safe from his wrath.

It seems as though, God is up to his old tricks, seemingly to swoop in just when it’s needed the most. Merciful and forgiving, Tulip isn’t buying it, but with Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) in danger, for once she doesn’t shoot first. Their paths have been very different, but they always end up on the same one, eventually.

Jody (Jeremy Childs) and Jesse have never seen eye to eye, so it’s refreshing to see an old fashioned ass kicking. Genesis was readily available, but just like everything else, Jesse needed to do it his way. With rage pent-up for years, it was finally the day to bring his own brand of justice. Death is coming for them all eventually, this one was a long time coming. The most gut-wrenching part? TC (Colin Cunningham) choosing to perish in a blaze of agony.

This entire season has been built towards taking out Gran’ma (Betty Buckley), once and for all. Attempting to throw a wrench in Jesse’s plans, her deal with the devil wasn’t enough to save her from her inevitable and well-deserved demise. Jesse wasn’t about to let her walk away, even if his soul is forever condemned to hell.

Onward to retrieve Cassidy from his prison. Tulip and Jesse are up for a challenge, and Herr Starr (Pip Torrens) is going to give it to them. As one chapter closes, another twisted adventure begins. Hopefully, this means we will be getting a Season 4. The stories are unlimited and the fans want more.
