Season 2 of AMC’s Preacher is underway, between angels, the Saint of Killers, thugs and pure chaos, it’s insane (in a very good way). While on a mission to find God, Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga), and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) have been through three episodes, several towns and had several close calls. One thing has been weighing heavily on Jesse’s mind, Eugene (Ian Colletti) who he sent to Hell in season one.
In the last episode we learned more about the back story of Eugene (aka Arseface). The comic has Eugene trying to end his life out of depression, but in the series, Eugene was put in a bad situation and instead successfully killed himself. Either way he ended up looking like a dog’s rear-end. Now, he’s stuck in Hell reliving that horrible day over and over.
In episode 4 we will find Eugene in Hell and you won’t believe who lives a few cells down, Hitler. Game of Thrones actor Noah Taylor will play the role of the notorious villain.
Showrunner Sam Catlin said in an interview with THR that, “We’re not trying to rehabilitate Hitler, but I will say, by the end of the season, hopefully, people will have a degree of affection for at least our ‘Preacher’ version of Hitler.”
“An affection for Hitler”? I don’t know about that. You will just have to watch this week’s episode, titled ‘Viktor’ to find out more. Check out the sneak peek of the episode below where Hitler introduces himself.
