TV Review: Preacher (Season 3, Episode 5)
Share This Article:
“I’m one of the good ones, there’s too many of the bad ones.” In 'Coffin', Tulip gets down to business, Jesse gets a pep talk from a hero and finally takes action, the Grail grow more grotesque than ever before and Cassidy has a run in with them while being frankly used badly. Magic is an unfair son of a bitch, so Tulip learns after beating everyone in her way to free Jesse. When Cassidy’s escape is discovered at the start, TC and Jody decide a brawl against Jesse and Tulip is needed. Despite TC using “found object-Bathroom weaponry”, Tulip is able to take him down unlike Jesse, who is easily overpowered by Jody and locked away in the underwater coffin that has triggered and traumatised him since he was a boy. Jody who then guards her is also overcome despite Jesse being unable to beat him. Halfway through she gets to Gran’ma Marie and they go at each other before Tulip finally kills Marie. Tulip gets shit done. Too bad that when resurrecting her, Marie made Tulip’s life contingent on her own life continuing. She immediately collapses dead too. Damn it. Madame Boyd who’d said this was the way to free him just wanted to hunt Jesse, the worst man she ever loved. So Jesse has to save his evil grandmother, who's finally shown up once both women are dead. WARNING: the scenes with the Grail might kill you from laughter and shock. Humperdoo is being prepped for the announcement of him as messiah to the world. Bedecked in gold and white, he attempts to bless actor versions of world leaders and fails. Then the All-Father, the Grail’s head, FaceTimes. His transition from comic to screen is pitch perfect and due to that horrifically grotesque and comical.
