"Puzzle Piece" efficiently moves the pieces together for Jesse's quest to meet his maker, but there is a dispiriting impression that the journey is now winding in circles.

Critic Reviews for Puzzle Piece

This show is excellent when it comes to detailed character work.

["Puzzle Piece"] is severely lacking in Preacher's key ingredient - the common ground between its three main characters that grounds the entire show.

I was truly invested in the outcome in a way I haven't been this entire season. With Starr in the picture now, the stakes are higher than ever.

The series definitely needed to spend some time showing Jesse's search for God hitting a dead end, and also on Featherstone and Starr learning about Jesse, before we could get to this point. But it didn't necessarily need to take this much time.

As it stands, the excitement of Preacher continues, as the show has put itself right into the groove it needs to be in.

"Puzzle Piece..." not only infuses the hour with an inventive and entertaining set piece, but also pushes the plot forward by getting Jesse Custer in a room with Herr Starr.

"Puzzle Piece..." is so frustratingly inessential that I'm pretty sure you could skip the whole episode and watch next week with minimal confusion.

Unfortunately, Jesse hasn't learned anything approaching a lesson, and things with the Grail are about to get even more complicated, so... lucky us.

This was not one of Preacher's best hours. While the scenes with Herr Starr are always entertaining, the few scenes we had with him didn't make up for a rather meh episode.

Starr and his Grail minions are proving to be very entertaining villains. Meanwhile, the increasingly bleak nature of the Jesse/Tulip/Cassidy friendship and a very novel action sequence helped mold one of the most well-rounded installments of the season.
