Preacher Season 1 Episode 6 Review: He Gone

at .  Updated at . Comments

Well, that was just one "wow" hour of television.

Jesse might have gone a bit crazy on Preacher Season 1 Episode 6, but he soon came around to realize he may have gone too far.

Before I even get into this crazy and emotional hour, did anyone else get extremely uncomfortable with the way-too-long slaughterhouse sounds in Odin's office?

Seriously, I didn't think it was going to end, and I almost turned the TV off. That scene went on waaay too long. But, it proves how crazy Odin really is, because anyone who finds those sounds relaxing has something seriously wrong with them.

Were those cows screaming? Ugh.

Jesse better watch out, or Odin's going to put one of those bolts in his skull to get what he wants. And he definitely wants that property.

I don't remember the specifics of the deal Jesse made with Odin. Did Jesse tell him he would give him his land if he came to church? Was Odin faking it when he said he'd "serve God"?  It sure didn't seem like he was faking it. 

Maybe Odin's so evil that no power of God can affect him.

Either way, it sure doesn't look good for Jesse the way the hour ended. But, I really get the feeling that Jesse isn't going to give up that easily.

Can you imagine wishing a parent dead and then having it happen? That kind of guilt isn't going to go away. Ever. And watching your parent get shot in the head the way Jesse did. Wow. Just wow. 

Please. Please kill my dad and send him straight to hell.

So what happened? Were those Odin's men? I really hope we get the backstory on how that came to be, because that was some pretty heavy stuff and really gave us some insight into Jesse's state of mind.

But, that still doesn't excuse him for being so nonchalant about Eugene or for insulting Tulip and Emily. And what about Cassidy? He is such a good guy, wanting him to realize this entity is bad news, and Jesse won't even give him the time of day.

Did he really leave Cassidy to burn alive in the sun? I hope not, because I'm going to start hating Jesse real soon.

It bothered me that he lied about Eugene. I understand it would be a little difficult to tell Sheriff Root what happened, but still. He could have told the Sheriff that Eugene ran away or told him he was going to run away.

After all, it would make sense considering the nasty things his dad said to him about wishing he had finished the job.

It also bothered me that Emily lied for Jesse. Is she that desperately in love with him? Is she worried about her job? She should have kept her mouth shut. And why didn't she ask Jesse why he lied after Root left?

The only bright spot this hour was Tulip. Granted, the little bit of backstory we got about her was pretty awful, but she did some very Tulip-y things this hour. Vanilla in the hash browns? That was hilarious.

I also liked her running after those kids who stole her uncle's pants. Another Tulip-y thing. I love her badassness. And considering everything we learned, her badassness makes perfect sense.

But, I wonder how she got back to Annville after she was taken away. because it sure doesn't seem like anything's changed since her childhood. 

And what happened to Jesse after his dad died? Did those two just live on the streets?

There are lots of things to like about Preacher, and then there are things that just don't make sense. While this hour was great in showing us some needed information about Jesse and Tulip and their relationship, we had an hour with no Fiore and DeBlanc and no Cowboy.

Did the Seraphim just forget about Jesse? How does the Cowboy fit in to all this? It's frustrating that everything is sort of discombobulated with this story.
