Warning: This article contains spoilers from . If you’ve yet to see the latest episode, then proceed back to the previous page, you don’t want to make the Preacher angry.

The latest episode of Preacher has left fans in awe and desperately awaiting next Sunday. It certainly was a roller coaster of emotions and we finally discovered what exactly is inside Jesse. On top of that we got a hilarious fight scene, huge revelations and unpredictable decisions — makes you want the next episode right now, huh? But before we start anticipating next week, lets take a look back at the jaw-dropping, heart-stopping moments from “Sundowner.”

1. The Fight

Despite the violent and occasionally disturbing nature of Preacher, it’s also arguably one of the funniest shows on TV and the fight at the beginning of this episode only proved this. Jesse, Deblanc and Fiore are tracked by an opposing angel named Susan, which leads to an epic fight. Taking place in the hotel room, the threesome attempted to subdue the female angel who refuses to give up. Deblanc and Fiore — as well as the opposing angel — die multiple times, resulting in a room filled with bloody dead bodies. It was disturbingly beautiful.

Remember, Jesse was only just coming to terms with the fact that he’d met angels, let alone discovering what the entity living inside him is — now he’s battling a relentless angel who dies multiple times. It’s a lot to take in.

2. Eugene Goes To Hell

Throughout the episode, Jesse doubts the purpose of his ability — he’s unsure of what to make of his “gift” because of his conversation with Deblanc and Fiore. Eugene tells Jesse that he no longer wants to be forgiven, begging him to take back what he did for him. This is the last thing that Jesse needed to hear as he was already filled with self-doubt. Jesse tells Eugene that he intends to save the whole town with his ability.

Eugene disapproves, telling Jesse that what he’s doing is a sin. In a moment of rage, Jesse orders Eugene to go to Hell — but it in his Genesis voice. The floor opened and swallows up Eugene. Oh dear.

3. Genesis Revealed

It’s been a long time coming, but this week we finally discovered what exactly Jesse is housing. The entity — known as Genesis — is an amalgamation of an angel and a demon who both betrayed their nature and engaged in a relationship. Jesse is informed that the entity is an embarrassment and must be returned to its “domicile” as quickly as possible. Originally on board with this decision, Jesse decides to keep Genesis inside him as he believes it’s what God would want.

4. Tulip And Emily Getting Along

Emily and Tulip are two completely different characters — so different that it’s hard to believe they are from the same television series. However, in an odd moment that nobody was expecting, they both end up getting along. Tulip even agrees to help Emily with her church chores. Aw, shucks!

However, we know Tulip and she always has an agenda — I just wonder how far she will go to get the old Jesse back.

5. Miles Plays Along

The easily-led mayor of Annville struggles with himself throughout the episode. Remember, at the end of he witnessed Quinncannon shoot a room full of people. He attempts to confide in Jesse, telling the preacher that he doesn’t know what God is telling him to do. Later, we see a car full of scorched bodies — he’s decided to play along with Quinncannon. But what does this mean for the mayor now? Is he in Quinncannon’s pocket? Only time will tell.

Only time will tell, Jesse.

The first Sunday without Game Of Thrones thanks to Preacher. The show delivered its best episode yet and we’re just over half way through the season with the — so I’m extremely excited to see what lies ahead for Jesse Custer and his congregation. Will you be attending from now on? You’d better, don’t want to make the Preacher angry.
