Preacher - Pig

"Pig" offers a short respite for our weary travelers. Putting the search for God on hold, Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga), and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) take time to con themselves into a drunken night which leads to Cassidy waking up in the morgue and Jesse noticing the first inkling of something between his two friends.

Much of the episode centers around the introduction and backstory of Klaus Starr (Pip Torrens) and how he became the leader of the Samson Unit under the Grail hunting down and kill false prophets. Starr is yet another soulless killer (although this time not literally) who will be sent after Jesse. While his story doesn't intersect with that of the preacher and his friends in this episode, it will soon as the soldier is given his next assignment in New Orleans.
