I just finished Preacher season 3 and right in the first episode (Angelville) Madame L'Angell request the Preacher something called "transpoil".

I tried googling but couldn't find any mention of this anywhere, except for some product pages for waste oil extraction pumps... It's also not even mentioned for the rest of the season.

So what is this transpoil she asks for? Is there any explanation in the comics, is it something real world psychics / mystics use, or is it a redneck name for something?


I believe it is used as lube to pull the soul thru, back from purgatory.

    Hello and Welcome to Movies & TV Stack Exchange! While I think your answer is helpful, it might be worth editing it to better explain that perhaps the real-world definition is being applied to supernatural action. (That is, if I understand your answer correctly?!) – Darth Locke Aug 12 '19 at 14:43

    if you could edit your answer to add some references to back what you're saying it would be great! Is that something from another movie / book or does it come from some real life cult / religion? – Luciano Aug 13 '19 at 11:08
