Folks, we are mere hours away from Jesse's (Dominic Cooper) final sermon from "The Book of Genesis" for AMC's series adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher – where we find out what God's (Mark Harelik) "master plan" has in store for Jesse, Tulip (Ruth Negga), Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), Herr Starr (Pip Torrens) and their blessed/cursed crew.
Now in case you hadn't heard… Bleeding Cool is honored to have Julie Ann Emery (Featherstone) hijacking its social media to live-tweet the fourth-and-final season opener "Masada" this Sunday night – but more on that in a second. We're here because after the fine folks at AMC were kind enough to offer some thoughts on the show's wildest moments (so far), we thought we'd offer all of you a look back at the previous season and our thoughts on the road that got us to this final run in our following video review series:
Preacher Season 03 Episode 01 'Angelville': In an effort to save Tulip, Jesse and Cassidy take her to Jesse's family home, Angelville. Jesse reunites with the people he fears most: his family.
Preacher Season 03 Episode 02 ' Sonsabitches': Desperate to escape Angelville and his family, Jesse attempts to forge an unlikely alliance with a familiar adversary.
Preacher Season 03 Episode 03 'Gonna Hurt': While Jesse works to pay back his debt to Gran'ma, Tulip and Cassidy risk their safety as they make their own plans to get out of Angelville.
Preacher Season 03 Episode 04 'The Tombs': As Jesse helps re-invigorate business at Angelville, he tests Tulip and Cassidy's faith in him when Angelville brings out a darker side of him.
Preacher Season 03 Episode 05 'The Coffin': As Cassidy falls in with a group of mysterious strangers in New Orleans, Tulip and Jesse deal with the fallout of a failed escape from Angelville.
Preacher Season 03 Episode 06 'Les Enfants du Sang': Tulip, Jesse, Jody and T.C. hatch an ambitious plan to save both Gran'ma's and Tulip's lives; Cassidy explores a new friendship in New Orleans.
Preacher Season 03 Episode 07 'Hilter': Jesse, Tulip, Gran'ma and Starr form an uneasy partnership to avert the apocalypse; Cassidy learns to love Eccarius, but at a cost.
Preacher Season 03 Episode 08 'The Tom/Brady': Annville, Angelville and the Grail team up to steal souls in New Orleans and Osaka in a last-ditch effort to satisfy Gran'ma and save the world.
Preacher Season 03 Episode 09 'Schwanzkopf': Divided and trapped, Tulip, Jesse and Cassidy battle old friends, new enemies and loved ones to escape certain death – or worse.
Preacher Season 03 Episode 10 'The Light Above': Jesse returns home for what he hopes is the last time but angers Starr and endangers Cassidy in the process; Tulip battles hell and Nazis.
So what's the best way to celebrate the start of it all going to Hell? We're glad you asked…
