Critic Consensus: A fairly sedated episode, "Monster Swap" still packs an absurd punch, a key character breakthrough, and some much needed screen time for its growing cast of supporting players.

Critic reviews for Monster Swamp
In "Monster Swamp," its first season's fourth episode, Preacher is as wild and intoxicating as ever. But it's a shallow high, with a hell of a crash coming down.
Despite the rather out-there beginning, this is a pretty sedate episode, but Tulip does get a chance to raise some hell.
"Monster Swamp" provides yet another grounded Preacher entry, albeit one that looks to more clearly push (however intermittently) both the characters and plot forward to the next level.
Honestly, nobody in this episode felt as if they were up to much, though Tulip and Cassidy continued to entertain just by being themselves.
This episode proved that the show can still create strange tension or moments out of the smallest things-be it Jesse lingering around Emily's basic kitchen, Fiore staring blankly at the TV, or Quincannon disgruntledly urinating into a briefcase.
