After this teasing glimpse of Joe Gilgun as Cassidy was released, most of us assumed the first sneak peek from Preacher would revolve around the vampiric Irishman – but as it turns out, AMC has given us a very tense, and ultra-violent clip of Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga) in action.
The clip, which aired during the season 2 premiere of Fear The Walking Dead last night, sees Tulip having to fight off two assailants while the car they’re in ploughs into a cornfield. After a scuffle, she manages to bite one guy’s ear off… and knowing the Tulip character, his day is about to get even worse.
This event never actually happens in Garth Ennis’ source material, but it’s pretty much been established that the small-screen adaptation kicks off some time before the events of the comic transpire – so it’s a safe bet that Tulip encounters these would-be killers before she runs into her old flame, Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper).
The Preacher pilot will air on AMC on May 22. Will you be tuning in?
