Preacher Season 1 Episode 8, titled ‘El Valero,’ showed a flashback of Quincannon family. Odin was the lone survivor after his entire family was killed in a horrific skiing accident. While in the office, Odin Quincannon called John Custer in the middle of the night and asked him to come over.
John was surprised with what he saw and said: “Oh my God, what have you done?”. The room is filled with family’s coffin as well as a slaughtered cow. Odin picked up two pieces of intestine – one from his daughter, other from the cow- and said to John that they were only the same ‘meat’.
Odin asked John to deny God in front of his congregation. John immediately walked out and Jesse secretly saw everything that happened in Odin’s office. This scene explains why Odin does not go to church and why Jesse’s command ‘serve God’ does not work on him.
In the present, Odin Quincannon’s army headed to All Saint’s chapel. Jesse fought back and the men retreated. Outside, Odin promised his men to build a food court if they successfully drag Jesse out of the church. The men rejoiced and became more excited to fulfil their mission.
Meanwhile, Jesse was imagining that Eugene dragged himself up from hell. Jesse immediately attended him, gave some water and asked him about his experience from hell. Eugene declined to give any details and said that he does not want to talk anything about hell.
Jesse called Sheriff Root to inform about Eugene. This made him realize that it was all an imagination. Before this happened, Jesse went to church and promised to abandon his power if God brings Eugene back.
Fiore and DeBlanc came and Jesse invited them inside the church. He asked them to help him bring back Eugene from hell but the angels refused. They said that they need to take Genesis out from his body first. Jesse became adamant saying that God wants him to have.
Fiore and DeBlanc performed the extraction ritual and succeeded. However, in a span of time, Genesis jumped back inside Jesse’s body. The angels departed the church and decided to use the other option.
Odin Quincannon is near to take Jesse out from the church where the latter agreed to sign the paperwork. Jesse asked for one more Sunday and promised to bring God to Anniville. He said: “If we don’t like his answers, I will denounce the bastard then and there,”.
Preacher Season 1 Episode 8 also showed Tulip adopting a dog named Brewski from an animal shelter. She took care of the dog like her own pet only to find out that she’s preparing him as someone’s prey. She brought Brewski inside a room and where Cassidy was waiting to devour the dog.
Preacher Season 1 Episode 9 airs on Sunday, July 24, 2016.
