Preacher - Mumbai Sky Tower

"Mumbai Sky Tower" offers the return of, and sadly also the final farewell to, Fiore (Tom Brooke). With questions about the mysterious cowboy who continues to track the threesome, Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga), and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) head to Las Vegas to find the former angel now using his abilities as the magician of a Las Vegas casino. While I'm sad to see Fiore exit stage left, the episode is a terrific send-off for the character who in his depression commits suicide every single night to the delight of vacationers and Vegas locals. It's also a nice change-of-pace to see Cassidy in an useful way for a change. The scenes between the pair work well, but also help reinforce to Fiore just what he has lost. Given another opportunity, I'm betting Jesse would like to rephrase the words he leaves him with.

Along with explaining who the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) is the events of the episode also make it impossible for the creature to be called off his assignment. Believing the cowboy is gone, and unaware about Tulip's reservations about heading to New Orleans where her past is waiting for her, Jesse and the gang's road trip continues. However, I'd guess it won't be too long before the group finds all kinds of new trouble to get themselves in.
