Preacher Season 3, Episode 10 'The Light Above' Review: "Today Was the Day, Huh?"

Preacher Season 3, Episode 10 'The Light Above' Review: "Today Was the Day, Huh?"

So Jesse's (Dominic Cooper) got his groove back and a last dance with Gran'ma (Betty Buckley) waiting for him at Angelville; Tulip's (Ruth Negga) going toe-to-toe with Hitler (Noah Taylor), Hell, and The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) to avoid a one-on-one with Satan (Jason Douglas); and Cassidy's (Joseph Gilgun) trying to win over the "Children of Blood": a typical day for our trio, right?

Throw in Herr Starr (Pip Torrens) rockin' trendy styles of "schwanzkopf" head-covering fashion, an Allfather (Jonny Coyne) having pulled off a way too believable Monty Python's The Meaning of Life homage, and "Crisis on Infinite Humperdoos (Tyson Ritter)" wandering the planet and you'll see why things are exactly as they should be going into tonight's season finale.

Thanks for joining us for our live-blogs and reviews of Preacher's third season, and we'll have some cool Preacher-related stuff posting throughout the year – just to ease the pain of having to wait for season 4:

PREACHER is a dramatic thrill ride that follows West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his badass girlfriend Tulip (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a road trip to find God and are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

The 10-episode third season follows Jesse's quest for God which takes him back to the place he's been avoiding his whole life: home. Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised, and find old grudges and deadly obligations await them. With the help of his friends — and a few enemies — Jesse will need to escape his past…because the future of the world depends on it.
