An ultra powerful peacekeeping angel handles Jesse and DeBlanc with ease.

For weeks, viewers of Preacher have probably been wondering what the special power Jesse Custer had actually was.

Last night, the angels DeBlanc and Fiore finally explained it to them and Jesse and, as a result, we got one of those incredible, jaw-dropping action scenes that illustrates why this show has so much potential.

First, here s the explanation of Jesse s power, which began last night s episode:

So now that that s all on the table, that lady with blonde hair who walked in during this bit of exposition?

Once DeBlanc and Fiore notice her, they follow her out of the diner, attack her, kill her, and drive off.

This weekend, Preacher premieres on AMC, the network that gave the world Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead, and the new show seems poised to up the ante when it comes to intense — and likely controversial — subject matter.

An adaptation of writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon s hit comic book series of the same name, Preacher casts Captain America: The First Avenger and The Devil s Double actor Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, a small-town Texas preacher who gains an extraordinary, supernatural power that sends him on a wild and occasionally terrifying adventure.

Ennis celebrated series tackled some heady themes over the course of its 75-issue run, including organized religion, redemption, and the nature of good and evil, and the series path to the screen goes back nearly two decades at this point.

Many comic readers are already well-acquainted with Jesse Custer s crazy journey, but as with any story making the leap from page to screen, the show is likely to earn Ennis reluctant hero and his supporting cast more than a few new fans in the months to come.

the show s controversial religious themes.

Rounding out the cast is Oscar nominee Jackie Earle Haley Little Children , who plays the owner of a local slaughterhouse, Odin Quinncannon.

The last season of Preacher is on the way, and things are getting downright apocalyptic.

Preacher, AMC’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s legendary comic series, is heading toward the endgame as its fourth and final season approaches.

Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), the Preacher himself, and his cohort of weirdos and warriors are facing down the barrel of God’s wrath, looking to reach the Almighty Himself to understand and maybe avert the impending apocalypse, as nuclear hellfire and bloodshed rains down all around them.

Today, IGN has released a trailer for that final season of the journey, first debuting at Comic-Con 2019, and it looks suitably intense, but still suffuse with the manic energy that’s been with the show since the beginning.

Will our beloved anti-heroes be able to respond adequately to the crisis bearing down around them?

Or is everything going to just blow the hell up?

The Preacher Parody

One of the more intriguing and highly anticipated new TV shows of the summer is AMC s The Preacher.

Set to premiere this coming Sunday, the show follows former criminal Jesse Custer played by Dominic Cooper who, in an effort to get his life back on track, returns to his Texas hometown to become a preacher.

Developed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin, AMC has been promoting the series hard in recent weeks.

Commercials for the show are plentiful and AMC just this week released video of the first four minutes of the first episode.

Seth Rogen wasn t satisfied with just being executive producer and director of the new AMC original series, Preacher, the video description reads.

For those intrigued in what may very well be AMC s next hit show, we ve already reviewed the first four episodes and, suffice it to say, this is definitely a show worth keeping an eye on.

We're three seasons into what some Ars Technica staffers consider the best TV show based on a DC Comics series: Preacher.

The sacred and profane collide on a regular basis in this violent, cartoony adaptation of comics created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon in 1995.

We got personal closure for our main protagonist and a few breadcrumbs to hint at a possible fourth season, despite that familiar mix of low ratings, critical accolades, and a fervent fandom.

Based on the DC comic series created by Ennis and Dillon, Preacher follows the madcap adventures of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper of Mamma Mia and Captain America), the titular preacher (and former con artist) who inexplicably becomes the chosen host for Genesis, aka, the embodiment of the Word of God.

This grants him the power to force people to do whatever he wants, including accidentally sending poor Eugene Root (Ian Colletti)—nicknamed "Arseface" because of a failed shotgun-suicide left him with a badly puckered maw—to Hell.

In the first season, Jesse teamed up with Tulip and Cassidy against a pair of bumbling angelic agents—members of an organization called The Grail—sent to retrieve Genesis and bring it back to Heaven.

So we know and what is the kind of series we are dealing with.

But there TWD appeared on television screens, while the comic is still published, it has taken 20 years to get the green light for a television version of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's cult cartoon series.

If Jesse Custer is serious about weight and tired of both his own past and his Assembly many sins and their limited interest in the Church, is the vampire Cassidy Joseph Gilgun with the thick Dublin accent a much more cheerful acquaintance.

Exactly what common history Tulip and Jesse is and why she is back in his life right now, we, like many other mysteries await the answer.

In the TV series, choose the writers instead to anchor the plot in the small Texas town of Annville.

If there are budgetary reasons or if we can expect a big road trip later is hard to say, but it has in any case the effect of many of the city's interesting inhabitants, as in the cartoon appears caricatures painted with the broadest brush, this may be somewhat greater depths.

After an acclaimed first season, the next few episodes of Preacher look poised to focus on some of the most memorable villains from the comic.

Adaptations of comic books have done big business for the movie industry for many years but as of late, we have seen comics serve as the basis for an increasing amount of incredibly popular television series.

AMC arguably started this trend with its adaptation of The Walking Dead, but its most recent project in this vein is Preacher, which debuted last year — and over the weekend, the network unveiled a new trailer for its second season at Comic-Con International.

Preacher is based on the critically acclaimed series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, which originally ran between 1995 and 2000.

The second season of the television adaptation began airing on AMC in June and this new clip gives fans a glimpse of what to expect from its remaining episodes.

The first season of Preacher was largely focused on protagonist Jesse Custer discovering the powers bestowed upon him by the entity known as Genesis and teaming up with his companions Tulip and Cassidy.

It's Team Jesse versus the Grail, as a vengeful God vows to bring on the apocalypse, in the fourth and final season of Preacher, AMC's adaption of the DC comic series created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.

Preacher follows the madcap adventures of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), the titular preacher (and former con artist) who inexplicably becomes the chosen host for Genesis, aka, the embodiment of the Word of God.

This grants him the power to force people to do whatever he wants, including accidentally sending poor Eugene Root (Ian Colletti)—nicknamed "Arseface" because of a failed shotgun-suicide that left him with a badly puckered maw—to hell.

Jesse and the gang spend much of season two in New Orleans, stalked by more Grail agents and a soul-less assassin dubbed the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) as they search for a missing God (Mark Harelik).

Season three finds the team splintering, as Jesse finds his way back to his childhood home, Angelville, to confront his voodoo queen gran'ma, Marie L'Angelle (Betty Buckley).

By the season finale, the Grail leader, Herr Starr (Pip Torrens), has kidnapped Cassidy—knowing Jesse and Tulip will try to rescue him—and amassed an army at Masada to greet them.

A celestial object races through space, the whole scene shot with a grainy look evocative of old sci-fi films.

The mysterious force lands in Africa, crashing into a preacher whose congregation cheers in awe, before he explodes in a shower of blood.

Cut to a preacher in Texas shaking off a hangover to the sounds of a Willie Nelson song.

The world of Preacher — bathed in blood and sunlight — draws heavily on classic Western films, and the show follows their lead thematically, touching on issues of masculinity, violence, and the flexible morality of frontier life.
