Lucifer’s Looking for the Old Normal in “Quintessential Deckerstar”

I’ve never been a fan of two-parters or cliffhangers but the Lucifer team manages a real feat with this penultimate season episode. It’s a solid return to form for a show that’s wobbled a bit this year. There are real emotional risks taken, a powerful double baddie bagging, and a satisfying […]

Lucifer Detects and Chloe Parties When It’s “All Hands on Decker”

Things move quickly in Lucifer-land these days. Chloe no sooner agrees to marry Pierce/Cain than they set a date for a mere three months which kicks Ella into high gear to throw the ultimate bachelorette party. The guests are working at cross-purposes though since Charlotte’s looking to break the engagement […]

Lucifer Makes the Wrong Proposal in “Anything Pierce Can Do I Can Do Better”

Pissing contests are rarely about the actual competition or even about the piss. It’s about the opponent. As Cain/Pierce’s most recent plan for ridding himself of immortality has involved winning Chloe’s affections, Lucifer has become more and more preoccupied with besting the world’s first murderer/past crime lord/present-day police lieutenant. And […]

Lucifer Makes No Bones About “The Angel of San Bernardino”

They say that which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. If that’s the case, as evidenced by this season’s exploration of Cain/Pierce’s situation, it means that humanity’s first murderer is freakin’ STRONG. Of course, Cain/Pierce is only interested in the first part of the adage and, in some still-mystifying plan, […]

The Rift Widens in Lucifer’s “Orange is the New Maze”

As a fan, I have to believe there has to be purpose behind significant character changes on a show, especially on one as meticulously mapped out as Lucifer. Over the last half dozen episodes, the Maze storyline has run parallel, and secondary, to the major developments in the Caine/Pierce plot. […]

Pierce’s Memory Lane Takes Lucifer to “The Last Heartbreak”

The one thing we haven’t seen a lot of on a show full of immortals is costumed flashbacks. The only one that comes close is the origin story we got at New Year’s and that was only going back five years. But we did get to see Luci in a leisure […]

Lucifer Pulls Focus in “Let Pinhead Sing!”

Well, we’re properly in the thick of it now. Despite a driving ambition to piss off Daddy God by helping Cain/Pierce die, Lucifer, having realized that losing Decker is a deal-breaker, breaks his deal with the world’s first murderer and entertains the idea of directing his energies to craft beers […]

Lucifer Proves ABEL in “Infernal Guinea Pig”

Exposition is always tricky to dress up as entertaining but the Lucifer writers room always comes up with something innovative and watching Luci recount the saga of Cain and Abel in stickman cartoon form was a stroke of brilliance. Of course, Cain/Pierce knows the story six ways from Sunday (quite […]

Lucifer Seeks Inspiration in Some “High School Poppycock”

Even when an opening scene telegraphs that it’s a dream, it’s still thrilling to watch because it has license to really GO BIG. Having Lucifer unfurl (his wings) in front of Decker only to have her fall off his penthouse balcony was a heckuva way to welcome us back into […]

Lucifer and Ella Explore Family Ties in “My Brother’s Keeper”

Ah, the joy of Trixie. I forget how much I miss Decker’s sprog until she back on screen, waving her powder pink death blades à la Maze around. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Tonight’s offering opens on a sketchy meet-up between a well-dressed dude and another dude with a […]
