The "Search for God" rambles on during this week's Preacher…but first, Tulip (Ruth Negga) needs to deal with a righteously unpleasant ghost from her past who isn't willing to let her go: Viktor. When we last saw Tulip, she was leaving Jesse (Dominic Cooper) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) behind to get cigarettes…and to offer herself up to Viktor's goons to force their inevitable meeting.
But as this clip from tonight's episode (Viktor) shows us, there are definitely reasons why Tulip's frightened and wanted to exit-stage-left from NOLA as quickly as possible:
"Soooo…what are we going to do with you?" I'm going to assume the answer for Tulip isn't a pat on the back, a hearty handshake and some well-wishes before they drive her back to Jesse and Cassidy…but that's just a guess.
From the AMC website:
"Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, Preacher is an absurdly twisted and action-packed thrill ride. When Jesse Custer, a small-town preacher with a criminal past, realizes God is absent from Heaven, Jesse sets out to find Him. Along for the ride are Tulip, Jesse's volatile true love, and Cassidy, a 119-year-old Irish vampire, who is Jesse's best mate. The gang ends up in New Orleans, where they must dodge local gangsters, dangerous secret agents in white suits, and the Saint of Killers, an unstoppable murderous cowboy from Hell."
Here's a full teaser and synopsis for 'Viktor', as well as a look ahead at what the season of Preacher has to offer:
"Jesse pursues a lead and dives deeper into his search for God with Cassidy and we discover more about Tulip's secret past."
Preacher airs on AMC on Mondays at 9 p.m. EST, and is based on the incredibly popular comic book series from writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon. Ennis also serves as executive producer of the series, along with Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad), Seth Rogen (This Is The End) and Evan Goldberg (Superbad).
