TV Review: Preacher (Season 3, Episode 7)
Share This Article:
"I had sun lamps and Catholics but I let you down…" In 'Hilter', Preacher’s plot makes progress as people come together in surprising groups, some connecting and others not. The Saint of Killers finds Hitler posing as David Hilter and working in a Subway-knockoff. He is just formulating a new five year plan for world domination when SOK turns up and drags him off. The surreal image of Hitler as sandwich artist is replaced by the bizarre contrast of him, his cowboy saint captor and Arseface as they go off to sort out that other problem… Damn Jesse Custer. Meanwhile Herr Starr, Featherstone, Jesse, Tulip, Marie, TC and Jody come together for a common goal, enlivening the season and making the plots of the two groups finally unite. Herr Starr needs to stop All-Father’s power while Jesse needs to mitigate Marie’s power. The result is seeing characters we didn’t expect meet and interact in hilarious ways. The best example being TC and Herr Starr, the latter of whom, in an effort to avoid talking to someone he’d describe as an “ignoramus”, whips out his phone pretending to be on a call as a dial tone rings out. The power of Gran’ma is emphasised in a discussion with Herr Starr about her allowing Jesse to help him with what he describes as a “quite humdrum” public relations job, by putting his best snake-oil seller face on and offering her a full slave quarters or if she wants to leave the “19th century behind” a TV show with her as a “Voodoo Grandma”. Marie lets her catheter drip onto Starr’s shoes. No sweet-talking….”I want Souls!” she demands, throwing Jesse against a wall with the compact when he acts too cocky during the talk. An Osaka warehouse called Soul Happy Go Go has millions. Jesse and Starr force Tulip and Featherstone(fighting in the kitchen), to go to Japan with Jody for them, Starr describing them to Marie as top operatives.
