AMC's "Preacher" Teases a Tense, Forbidden Romance in New Clip

A new clip from "Sundowner," this weekend's episode of "Preacher," finds two of the series' characters sailing straight into an impassible, potentially awkward love triangle.

The clip, which comes courtesy of Indiewire, shows the vampire Cassidy and marksman Tulip engaged in a somewhat suggestive conversation in a closet. The two are interrupted by the series' protagonist, Jesse, who just so happens to be Tulip's ex. After Tulip exits, Jesse sniffs around the closet like a Jurassic Park raptor as Cassidy hides behind the door, but Jesse just can't confirm his suspicions. To make it even more awkward, Cassidy is Jesse's best friend.

Where this romance goes (if anywhere) is anyone's guess, but time will certainly tell, as the show was recently renewed for a second, 13-episode season. That's one whole Holy Trinity more than this season's 10-episode run.

"Preacher" is an adaptation of the comic book series of the same name. The show was developed in partnership by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Caitlin. It follows the adventures of a preacher possessed by an entity called Genesis, which allows him to supernaturally command others. "Preacher" airs Sundays at 9 pm EST on AMC.
