1. Odin Quincannon Is Heartless For A Reason
As the episode begins, we see the Quincannon family on a ski trip. Odin's mother and daughter are discussing why the younger of the two should wear gloves when the lift that the entire family is in plummets to the ground. Later, Quincannon reaches out to Preacher, Jesse's Dad, in the middle of the night. He stands clutching intestines and asks the Preacher which one is his daughter's and which one is the cow's. He said that there is no soul and that Preacher needs to denounce God. Pretty heavy stuff! Seems like Quincannon has had a pretty rough ride with his entire family dying in a freak accident. Which, honestly explains a lot.
2. The War Between Jesse And Quincannon Is Messy
Jesse sits in his church alone with a pretty heavy-duty weapon while Quincannon's men make several attacks on the building. During these attacks, Jesse manages to scare all of the men away and literally shoot the penis off of one of them. All of the organized fighting and gunshots draws a pretty substantial crowd. Donnie, still terrified of Preacher's power, walks through the crowd to his car, sticks his head in the trunk, and shoots. I personally thought he had killed himself, but he actually just deafened himself with the gunshot. Immediately following this, he barges in on Preacher alone in the Church and sits down with Quincannon to negotiate the contract. Jesse begs for one more Sunday where he promises to bring the voice of God to the people. Apparently, the God Quincannon serves is the God of meat because it's a God that talks back to him, while Jesse's God never has responded to anyone. We don't know how this agreement ended, since the next thing we see is Jesse being taken away in the back of Sheriff's police car.
3. Preacher Goes Crazy
In between the attacks on his Church, and after several drinks, Jesse tells God that he will never use his power again if He would only bring Eugene back. Naturally, Eugene digs himself out of Hell. After bringing Eugene three glasses of water and speaking to him for a very long time, Jesse learns that he isn't really there when Eugene mentions the Angels attempting to get Genesis back from Jesse. Eugene almost speaks as Jesse's conscience throughout the episode and, while interesting, it was annoying at times.
4. Genesis Wants To Stay With Jesse
After speaking with Eugene, Jesse calls his Dad to come get him. After realizing that Eugene isn't actually there, Jesse requests the agents. He tries to bargain with them saying that he will give Genesis back if they bring Eugene back from Hell. They sing Genesis out of Jesse, then promptly pack up to leave. Jesse, obviously, is very upset about this. In the midst of his bargaining for Eugene's life, Genesis bursts out of the coffee can and back into Jesse. The Angels ominously retreat saying that it's a shame they'll have to do it the other way.
5. Cassidy Is Alive
Tulip suddenly goes to adopt a beautiful big dog named Brewski. After tossing a ball to this sweet, sweet dog several times, she takes him inside and tells him he's a good boy. She gives him the biggest hug you can give a dog without hurting him. Then she promptly sends the dog into a room with blood stains on the door. We hear sounds very akin to those of a vampire eating an animal. Tulip curses Jesse's name and we can only assume that Cassidy is alive.
Final Thoughts: I still have no idea what is going on in this show. It feels less like they're throwing me curveballs and more like they are just throwing things, everywhere, without aim. I really wanna know what is going on with Tulip, why she wasn't there for Jesse and what her relationship with Cassidy will be like now. I also wonder why the Sheriff's first priority was not to burst in there and get his son, but to listen to Jesse's demands. Why are the angels being jerks? Were they actually able to bring Eugene back or did they just say that so Jesse would cooperate? And what is going on with Quincannon and his "meat God." I hope I can finally get some answers next week.
