I can't wait to see how the show adapts this story in Season 9!

Right after the revelation that Jesse drugged Tulip after Cassaidy, her one true love, fell out of a plane.

We jest, but I am always somewhat intrigued by the way the show makes you think you know where it's going based on what you know from the books and then completely swerves you. I mean, did they really try to make

Hitler a sympathetic character? And then make Arseface an asshole when his whole thing is that he's not an asshole? I know I should hate it, but I can't. I just can't.

You know... as presented here, Herr Starr is truly a terrifying, complex, and fascinating villain. His blend of pragmatism, morality, determination, and fanaticism makes for an epic antagonist.

It's a shame that throughout the series, he was constantly undermined by his own writer, turned into the butt (huh hun huh) of jokes, mutilated and made ever more irrational and just plain crazy over time... I feel like the comic elements of Preacher, even early on, made Starr less than he could have been.

Yeah I was feeling the same thing. Guess rape played for laughs was more important to Ennis.

Was the fat All Father part of the Jesus bloodline?

He was far too intelligent to be. I don't think the series mentioned his age, but from all appearances, he couldn't be much older than, say, the child Messiah's grandparents would've been. And given how intellectually disabled the child and his parents were, the grandparents wouldn't have been significantly different.

Also, if I recall correctly the Allfather isn't a hereditary position; Starr alludes at some point to at leat a few previous holders of the rank having risen to it the same way Starr would: by biding their time and offing the current Allfather when the moment was right.

Just wondering. In the past scans, part of the reason Jesse was on the All Father's radar was because Jesse's grandmother was All Father's Aunt, via some long old blood line.

How many generations have they been breeding idiots in a zoo enclosure and being like "nah this is fine - this is fine- EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE"

I'd think after a while someone would start a plan B or rethinking some things.

Well I meant sooner than this. Cause they themselves admit they are using the "popular" apocalypse deadline for this - they have no religious reason to believe that their inbreeding will stop doing bad things and suddenly they'll have a messiah.

So yea...how long had they just been watching idiots shit in cages and go "nah this is great"
