Lucifer’s Exes Get a Layover in “Stewardess Interruptus”

When last we left our favourite fallen angel (no offense, Amenadiel), he and the good detective were sharing a promising moment of intimacy just as Mommy God was coming to the realization that Chloe was the result of a celestially-blessed union which apparently is the key to getting back into Heaven. How that is supposed to work, is anyone’s guess but it definitely put a bit of spring into Ms. Charlotte’s step. Well, that and her new love of espresso.

Alas, the moment never flowers into anything more as one of Lucifer’s many fun-time partners, stewardess Jana (Jennifer Cheon, Minority Report), arrives at the penthouse armed with an arsenal of airline puns and a full-charged libido and Chloe turns out to be the one who takes off. Lucifer rejects the eager flight attendant and heads down to LUX instead.

Breakfast at home turns out to be full of surprises for Chloe when Trixie chooses Frosted Sugar Toasties cereal over eggs then questions her mom on whether dinner with Lucifer involved “flowers, candles, and some sort of naked stuff”. Maze joins them with news of Perry Smith’s murder (which she and Dan orchestrated in the last episode) and seems disgruntled when Chloe doesn’t rejoice to hear that her father’s killer had gotten his just desserts. Chloe and Trixie leave and Maze consoles herself with a bowl of Frosted Sugar Toasties with vodka.

On the scene of the newest homicide, Lucifer tries to implement some of his mother’s relationship advice (!!!) and prove himself worthy of Chloe only to have the victim turn out to be the unfortunate Jana, blowing his “I’ll never set eyes on her again” approach kind of out of the water. Tracking down a texting acquaintance to a Malibu mansion, they run into a few more of Lucifer’s bed bunnies hanging out poolside with jerk-face Andy (Jamie Kennedy, Heartbeat) but get called away quickly afterwards to a second murder which also turns out to be one of Lucifer’s previous dalliances.

Running with the most obvious theory, Chloe asks Lucifer for a list of his lovers for the last eight weeks. Whew. The police station is quickly crowded with gorgeous ladies (and some gents) who sing the praises (with extensive, hilarious details) of Lucy’s sexual prowess and innovation to Chloe while Lucifer and Dan listen in from the interrogation observation room. Interestingly enough, it’s really only when Charlotte Richards steps in to let Chloe know that she has changed her mind about Chloe’s worthiness and how special she is to Lucifer that it gets uncomfortable.

Maze is still seeking some recognition of the Perry Smith resolution so she visits Detective Dan at the precinct where he quickly admonishes her to NOT talk about arranging a Russian mob revenge hit in the middle of a police station. More disgruntled Maze. This leads her to invade Dr. Martin’s office during her lunch break and unload on her for advice and validation. And then steal her hard-boiled egg.

The parade of Lucifer’s exes proves to Chloe that none of them were emotionally invested enough to kill for his sole attention but they describe a possible suspect who hung out at LUX and stared at them and Lucifer. Tracking down Suki Price (Diana Bang, Second Chance) to her apartment, they find a stalker board of epic proportions, chronicling everyone Lucifer interacts with, as well as handmade commemorative Lucifer dolls with “multiple chest hair options”. Although Suki admits that Lucifer is her perfect man – “like porn, a stuffed-crust pizza, and my Hello Kitty blankie all rolled into one” – she is definitely not their killer.

Following a clue from Suki’s board, Chloe and Lucifer track down the pilot that often flew the charter flights that Jana and victim #2, Raj, worked as flight attendants. Tim (Toby Levins, The 100) is relieved to find out that their “only” police and not drug dealers out to kill him. He points the finger at “Burt” a high-traffic drug-dealer who used Jana often to mule product for him. Hoping to lure Burt out, Chloe recruits Maze to pose as a flight attendant. Maze, with her new sense of purpose – “This self-worth comes from within, bitches” – jumps to the task.

The episode wraps up relatively quickly with Maze beating up a decoy Burt while the real Burt tries to get a missing package out of Lucifer at gun-point. A quick flash of the Lord of Hell’s true demeanor and Burt ends up begging to be arrested. Chloe, the consummate detective, is still bothered by the missing package.

In a tantalizing cut-away scene, a very sickly looking jerk-face, our buddy Andy from Malibu, is cornered by a shadowy figure to whom he apologizes for stealing what he thought was a drug package. We see that the parcel actually contain some sort of medical vials and Andy blathers on that he broke one and spilled it on himself by accident and now he’s not feeling good. The shadowy figure puts Andy out of his misery and leaves with the parcel. So! Many! Questions!

In a lovely bit of bookending, the episode ends with Chloe and Lucifer alone once again. As Lucifer explains that he’s concluded that he’s quite given up on their romantic possibilities, Chloe takes the moment to kiss him and render him, quite remarkably, speechless.

Lucifer airs Monday nights at 9pm ET/PT on FOX.
