I was hoping to see Lucifer flying with his rejuvenated wings, but I guess that won't be happening. He doesn't seem too fond of them.
I'm going to miss his "devil-face", as well.

I don't think the Devil Face is gone. It failed when he was trying to show it to Chloe. She seems to be a power dampener for him. It will probably turn out he still can do his devil face when she is not near or at least not the target.

I enjoy this show very much, another good start to the the season.

I was quite frustrated he cut off the wings before trying to show Chloe his devil face.

The wings will explain it all you doofus, just show her those!

That said, I am liking this season so far. The family drama with 'Mom' got old fast. I hope Sinnerman turns out to be a competent and complex villain.

Also, Amenadiel has been a sad sack for a while, he needs some wins so he stops moping.

Yeah, you're probably correct about the devil-face.

It was a great start. I can't wait to see what happening with Maze and Trixie.

Agreed with all. And even if he can't get his wings erect (hehe) with Chloe around, he could take a video, get the doctor to back him up, or any number of things. There have to be some tricks he could do to convince her.

I didn't really like mom that much at all, glad she has her own universe to screw up now.

So far Sinnerman sounds like a mob boss, but hopefully he is much more than that.

I actually enjoyed the mom story, but I'm glad that it has been resolved. And I am hoping the Sinnerman is actually a metaphysical threat.

I think Sinner man is lucifer, he gets bopped over the head and ends up in the desert, by what we know now, as a company that specializes in extreme pranks. All the dude knew was that he was contacted over the phone by someone called sinner man.

Which would mean that he is able to regenerate his wings, and not require devine intervention. Amenidiel looked like he wanted to make a guess at who this sinner man was, before taking the safe route and saying, nope, never heard of him.

So happy Lucifer is finally back! This has become my favorite show (tied with Doctor Who, but I've got a long wait for that!)

Loved the episode, though I wish he'd just finish his reveal to Chloe, already! I did like her "Are you gassy?" comment, though. :)

So far I don't like the new boss. He started out as a dick, and hasn't improved much. Should be good for some conflict, though, and that's always good.

If Lucifer keeps cutting off his wings and they keep growing back, he's gonna have to find a place to stash all the "leftovers"...

Yeah, I'm hoping that the new boss is going to more than just a jerk. But I'm fairly confident that the writers will add some more wrinkles to his character.

I'm betting he'll either die tragically or turn out to be Sinnerman.

I love this show. My pals at church are overly fond of glurgy tales of personal redemption, but they are more "God is not Dead" sorts. Dear Lord, take me before I watch that shit! I like them as friends, but I prefer those atories without the glurge. The others are simplistic and stupid. This isn't. I would like to say, "C'mon, some of your neighbors think you worship Lucifer!" This results in neighborly discussion like, "No, we follow the teachings of Martin Luther, whom we don't worship. You've mistaken us for Catholics, who worship Mary." (Shut up. I was basically raised a Marianist. Still have a bit of it, and that's not far from wrong. Her worship goes back millennia before that cheap-ass Sumerian storm god. ;) )

I know of one "church lady" (an acquaintance of an acquaintance) who is a member of a very conservative church, who said something like -- "I know that I am not supposed to be watching this show, but I started watching because I had a big crush on Tom Ellis. And now I'm hooked!" :)

I hope that's not it, because it's a bit too obvious. Than again, if he isn't, and there is an actual Sinnerman character, there become way too many characters in the show.

Also, I hope they cut back a bit on forensic chic -- she's better in very small doses -- and give Amenadiel his balls -- excuse me, I mean his wings -- back.

This is a fun theory. I can see Lucifer going through a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde phase with his good and bad sides, as long as it doesn't go on too long. It would be a great story arc for Dr. Linda, spotting it and treating it.

Maze seems to be growing a soul. Or, that was how I interpreted last night's episode.
Lucifer, after seeing Maze fluff the pillow, saying "He broke my Maze" both sadly and bewildered.
At the end, treating her as if she were recovering from a bad case of flu or other illness.

It was kind of fun playing "spot how many ways they put things in front of Maze's belly to hide her pregnancy." :) I wonder if they chose to set the episode in the Frozen North so they'd have an excuse to have her wear more clothes so it was easier to hide the bump.

I loved the episode and figured that it was one of the stand alones that was held back from last season. That new LT never put in an appearance, but the dude with the file cabinet at the end, after Maze gets told that they know everything, suggests that this may have been the warm up episode for the sinnerman arc, now its a bit out of order.

I figured originally that Lucifer was sinnerman, but now I am starting to wonder if sinnerman is not a single person, but a group. Sort of like those whack jobs on Preacher.

Loved Chloe's I'm not worried about Maze, I'm worried about Canada.

I loved the episode and figured that it was one of the stand alones that was held back from last season.Lesley-Ann Brandt was pregnant at the time, so I guess they did this to have Maze in the start of this season even though she's on Maternity leave. A weird way to do it, but not impossible. Trixie may age in a random order if they trickle them out, though.

If anyone else is curious, the files were:
Lucifer Morningstar
Amenadiel/Dr. Canaan
Mazikeen of the Lilim

Apparently lilim is straight out of Jewish mythology as a tem for offspring of Lilith so I'm guessing whoever Sinnerman is, he's not just a mundane crime boss.

Gaudium

Didn't remember that name, this is what one website said:

We havenít seen him on the show yet, but the cigar-smoking cherub was a key character in the Lucifer comics. Does this mean he will be making the leap to live-action too?

Tapiotar
10-18-2017, 05:13 PM
But maybe not in the the form of a cherub. They may keep the cigar-smoking, however.

I love this show. Even though the mythology is silly. Is it bad of me that I love it for all the really good-looking men? Tom Ellis, DB Woodside...sigh....the others aren't so bad, either, just seem like nothing compared to the first two.

Okay, as to my own gender, I like Maze's total lack of inhibition and bad-assery, and I like Dr. Linda's smarts. Even though, in general, I don't like children, Trixie is terrific. Chloe is the woman who is lacking something dynamic. The problem of playing a straight arrow, I guess. Over the top characters are always more fun.

Wow, that was a good episode last night. Sort of uneven, but lots of interesting stuff happened. I kinda like the Lieutenant even though he seemed needlessly nice to Lucifer and mean to Chloe. Now I think he either he likes Chloe or is the Sinnerman. Or both.

I have a wild theory about the Sinnerman. Sinnerman is apparently another name for the Antichrist. I think the Antichrist is supposed to be the son of the devil, which would make him Lucifer's son. Is is possible Lucifer has a son he doesn't know about? What sort of contraception does an angel need to use?

And I think Lopez (the coroner) is the hottest lady on the show. So cute.

I'm thinking that it is actually the high-falutin' lawyer, and not his actual mother, as well. I will be disappointed if it is actually "Mom" -- as much as I enjoy watching Tricia Helfer in that role, they had come up with a really good resolution to her story-arc, and such an early "resurrection" would not be a good thing for the show.

And I agree with you about Amenadiel's awkward scenes. Not good for the character at all!

Amenadiel definitely deserved the lecture Lucifer gave him. He was a badass in the first few episodes, but is mostly a whiny loser now.

Didn't mom get banished to her own dimension? Being an immortal goddess it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to think she found a way to cross back. I try to avoid previews because they are so deceptive, so I can't judge the kiss.

Ok I guess Maze is the hottest but not the cutest, Ella is cute + hot.

By the way I love the story possibilities that all Lucifer's favors bring up. He must have dozens of people in his debt now.

As much as I've enjoyed the show from the start, I'm starting to get tired of Lucifer's selfish, spoiled brat shtick. Ellis is a good actor, he was able to show that Lucifer was actually suffering even as he behaved so very very badly. Amenadiel spoke truth to Lucifer, Lucifer recognized some of the truth but couldn't man up to it, and lashed out like a vicious teenager, speaking about his own need for constant attention as much as Amenadiel's. He makes a little progress, matures a bit, and then throws it all away.

Why can't near immortal beings with dozens or hundreds of years of existence behind them learn anything? It makes me think of Buddhist teachings that demigods and gods have a harder time achieving enlightenment than humans in the human realm.

I think that is true but there would still be a police captain or even 2 over him directly and several other Lts.

It looks like LA (http://www.lapdonline.org/inside_the_lapd/content_basic_view/1063) actually has 2 (http://www.lapdonline.org/hollywood_community_police_station)to 3 Capt in (http://www.lapdonline.org/pacific_community_police_station) most stations.

However none of this matters, a minor issue on a show with the Devil and other Angels. I'm not sure why I brought it up.

I'm pretty sure you are right.

And while I've found Aimee Garcia to be quite comely since her first appearance, I thought it a little odd in this episode that she appeared a little older when she was dressed up than when she is in her normal clothes. Now I know why. There were lots of close-ups in this episode that I guess I hadn't been paying close enough attention to in earlier episodes.

Still, I wished I had looked the male version of half that good at 38...or even 28.

It's like there's something that prevent humans from recognizing divinity, even when it's right in front of them.

The characters who have seen his devil face, or who have been to hell, do tend to remember.

I don't think that 'something' needs to be anything other than a standard human ability to rationalize things - if you see something supernatural, your first thought isn't 'supernatural', it's I must have misunderstood.

The bartender shoots at Lucifer and he doesn't flicnch/bleed? Must have missed. Lucifer threw that guy through a window? I guess he works out.

Dr Linda, on the other hand, has not only been told he is the devil, she has been shown it. Hard to rationalize the devil face away (and it explains some of the other things she has experienced better than her rationalizations (like her attraction to Lucifer in the first place)).

Agreed, that's why I said "It's like". The human ability to rationalize away data that doesn't fit preconceptions is amazing. But I do think they are taking it just a tad bit too far in this show. Lucifer has shown himself to be extraordinary too many time for them to keep ingrowing it.

I hope Amenadiel comes back soon, and starts getting his personal power back soon. Not necessarily angelic, but just some inner strength needs to return.

Amenadial (sp?) was still in heaven when the series started. He was able to visit whenever. Presumably, Lucifer was able to do so as well. I suspect the problem is his abandoning of duty, rather than being on Earth as such.

I liked the genius bonus Oscar Wilde titbit. He was straight before he met me. Wilde actually did have several liaisons with women, until he married when he started focusing on men exclusively. (Its though that sticking to men was him rationalising it as not being adultery).

This episode had its cute moments, but it wasn't one of my favorites. Too many places where I had to stretch my disbelief.

Example: I'm sorry, but no human being with eyes or ears, male or female, is ever going to call Lucifer "boring" and refuse him entry into an exclusive dating party. Aside from the looks, the fashion sense, the charm, the money, and the accent, he's the freakin' owner of Lux!

Also, everybody kept going on about how devastatingly attractive what's-his-name was. Uh...really? I know attractiveness is relative, but you'd think they'd have picked a more conventionally attractive guy to play that part. I wasn't buying it.

Third, I know Chloe is a cop and a tomboy, but she's proved on other occasions that she knows how to act in cocktail-party situations. There's no way she'd have been as awkward as she was at that party, even with Lucifer "coaching" her. That whole scene was painful to watch.

The scene with Lucifer, Chloe, and Trixie playing Monopoly was cute, though I honestly can't see Luci being talked into playing a dull board game even by those two.

Yeah, I know, I'm overthinking it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXIRt0uG3D0). But I'm ready to get back to the Sinnerman storyline next week.

I liked the Monopoly scene, and I liked the way that it tied up at the end, with the shoe on Lucifer's piano, and the girl of the night in the top hat. It seemed he was less than enthusiastic about her. I agree that Chloe at the cocktail party was poorly written and cringe-worthy. I'm also getting tired of people referring to Dan as handsome. I find him very unattractive and meh. Glad to see Amenadiel back, with confidence and perspective.

I don't think it's the Sinnerman either. And Lucifer probably could have gotten out of the vault. Seems like the door would have been the weakest part from what was shown. When Maze found Lucifer in there I was really afraid she was going to close the door behind her and we would wind up with the old trope of 2 characters locked in a room to hash their differences out. But no, I am almost always pleased with the writing on Lucifer.

I'm liking Tricia Helfer more now that she isn't the bumbling crazy mother of Lucifer. Still don't see a lot of point in her character though.

I think we are leading up to Lucifer discovering that he has a lot more powers other than discovering desires, as set up by Dr. Linda thinking that discovering desire is a pretty feeble angelic power, compared to stopping time or seeing the future. Lucifer has something else he has never discovered, because he has been fixated on desire and on punishment. Finding out what it is or they are could be interesting.

Maze has gone from superbadass to being very emotionally vulnerable...don't know what I think of that. Lucifer can be insightful when he is forced to be, as he made Maze ask herself the right questions. I also don't see the point of Tricia Helfer's character, and I don't have the hormonal bias in her favor. Dislike Pierce, who also seems pointless, unless he turns out to be the Sinnerman. Which, given the scapegoat's reaction to him ("Do what you have to do") makes it seem more likely.

I'm thinking that the Sinnerman doesn't have anything to do with Lucifer's wings coming back or other changes to his powers. Those things are happening for other reasons, possibly "Dad" is pleased with Lucifer's personal growth? Sinnerman is just taking advantage of Lucifer's uncertainty to claim the credit.

Yeah, I had a lot of trouble with the first part of the show too. Everyone was acting wildly out of character (don't even get me started) and it was frustrating me a lot. Also, if the woman kidnapped herself, how the hell did she tie herself up to cinderblocks and toss herself into the water like that? It didn't make sense.

I normally like Ella, but she was driving me crazy last night. Annoying as hell. I hope they tone her down a bit going forward.

Trixie and Mom were fun.

Apropos of nothing, I don't see where all the women on the show are going gaga over Pierce and how "handsome" he is. I think he's funny-looking, and I can't imagine how anybody would look twice at either him or Dan when Lucifer is around. But I realize that's just me and my tastes. :)

Cain is/was sinnerman

'Sinnerman killed my brother' - was part of Pierce's story.

He was apparently trying to get Lucifer to kill the protege - and I am guessing he killed him instead to prevent his secret (being cain) from coming out.

I liked the pairing! I'm also expecting that Maze will be going off the deep end for several episodes, while there is no pairing. I don't know if Linda and A. will get back together, but I think it helped his character development a lot. It got him over some of the holier-than-thou, stick-up-the-butt thing he had going on.

I'm wondering whether Cain, Luci, even Amenadiel all have a pre-selected partner out there that "Dad" picked for them. Just thinking out loud. Each partner could effect each immortal differently.We know who Luci's partner is. If Cain finds his partner, perhaps his immortality can be ended (but will he want it to be). Maybe the point of all of these partners is to teach the immortals what it is to be human?

Also, is there or is there not another adversary out there? Someone got eyeless dude to try and get Luci to kill him, which apparently is a big no-no. Someone is giving Luci back his wings, and took his scary face. Are they the same someones, or different someones? I'm wondering if they are different someones. As in "Dad" is doing the wings and such, and there is someone else involved in trying to get Luci busted back to Hell. Who's watching the gates right now? Is there anyone else who would be mad enough at him to get him into that much trouble?

All that Lucifer needs Cain to do is have Cain call Lucifer 'his brother' - then in a fit of irony, Lucifer can kill him.

Pretty good, but I wonder if the gang was Korean because the stunt crew was Korean, and the producers said "we need a fight scene and we need it fast."

Wouldn't be the first time. Sometimes it is a way of saying "thank you", giving the stunt people an acting credit and possibly a boost to their episode payday.

I like Luci looking out for Miss Lopez - do no mess with the devil's friends.

The between A and Cain/Pierce was fun. I liked that, other than being unstoppable, Cain was no match for an angel, even an unpowered one.

The show is better when Lucifer and Amenadiel are at odds, so glad we're back to that. Do we know when Amenadiel tried to have Lucifer killed? It's not ringing any bells, so I'm guessing that at least we didn't know A was behind it?

Yes, Amenadiel brought Detective Douche's partner back from the dead in order to get him to kill Lucifer. He did kill Lucifer, but Dad brought Lucifer back in order to deal with Mom, who escaped from hell.

They need to bring in better writers, or more consistent writers. Borrow some of the writers from The Good Place? The characterizations are all over the map, inconsistent, illogical. It seems to be getting worse as the seasons go on, making me thin that they have no overall plan in mind.

Cain and Amenadiel share the biggest sin, ie, lack of sense of humor. Same with Maze, and sometime Lucifer. They all take themselves too seriously.

Immortality doesn't seem to be good, actually detrimental, for character development. An eternity of adolescent grudges and shoulder chips and obsessions is not a pretty thing.

He told the bartender he was not really romantically interested in Chloe, just manipulating her as part of his scheme to top himself.

Then there is Lucifer, who actually likes Chloe, but refuses to get too intimate with her ever since he found out she was created by Amenadiel under mysterious circumstances, because he suspects she may not have completely free will where he is concerned. So, poor Chloe :)

Loved the sleep-deprived sequence. Anyone think that Maze will go through with killing Cain after all?

Maze wants Amenadiel and Lucifer and Linda to care about her more than they care about anyone else. She hates Chloe because Lucifer loves her. Maze is all id, with the emotional maturity of a two-year-old, unable to care for anyone else, except as far as their welfare impinges on her own. The question is, is she capable of maturing? Of learning to care? Sometimes it seems as if she is.

That was the best episode I've seen in a while. So glad Amenadiel got his wings back and went to the home he's longed for with what's her name. Maybe he'll be bored in Heaven and return to earth next season? Is Maze really dead? The might explain why they've made her so demonically unpleasant lately, so fans won't mind her being killed off quite so much.

And, if tortures in hell are mostly self-inflicted, why is there a need for demon torturers anyway? Or perhaps that is their natural home.

I suspect that Chloe is going to kill Pierce, and that she is the only one who will be able to do so. I will be so glad to see the end of him. I dislike the character and the actor who played him. His arc brought the whole show down, down, down.

The next episode could be a satisfying conclusion to the series, if it is not renewed. If it is, it will be able to go in a refreshing new direction. However, Lucifer as a happy family man and law-abiding, ethical person destroys the premise of the show.

I don't think she's done with him yet, and I definitely don't think she's dead. I'm guessing next episode a certain annoying ass of a formerly-immortal police captain is going to be in a world of hurt as several people line up to have their shot at him.

She's not dead - just shot up with the same knockout drug she was going to use on Ammedadeal.

Charlotte's death and Amenadiel's regaining his wings and taking her to heaven all coupled with that haunting music actually brought a tear to my eye.

Yeah, that was quite an emotional scene!

Sadly, Fox has cancelled Lucifer (http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/lucifer-canceled-fox-1202800382/). :(

Don't forget, there are 75 issues of Mike Carey Lucifer comics for your Lucifer fix.

So now I'm down to Gotham and The Gifted on FOX, and I won't be adding any new FOX shows next season. FOX is really looking out for me, cutting down on my TV viewing.

Yes, but that version of Lucifer has nothing to do with the tv character Lucifer.

Sigh. A good concept and a good beginning entirely thrown away by crappy show running and crappy writing this season. What happened to them?

But at least Amenadiel got his wings back. That was satisfying.

Aw, man! Horrible news. Yuck!

I wonder if the CW would pick it up?

Bad news indeed. I don't really want it to be a CW show but I guess it's better than nothing.

There are several campaigns to save Lucifer and here is an interview with Tom Ellis: http://tvline.com/2018/05/14/lucifer-cancelled-tom-ellis-interview-save-lucifer-campaign/

I can see it finding a home at the CW, since they're making their mark with DC-based series and picked up Supergirl. Why not collect them all?

The past two episodes were good ones, and it's frustrating that the series might end at this point. It was something they needed to do, and sets up a fascinating storyline if it continues.

Holy crap, that was a good finale! Maze and Lucifer are back, and Chloe has seen the devil face. And Lucifer didn't wimp out on killing Cain. The investigation started off a little shaky, why didn't they at least have someone follow Pierce? But the last 5 or 10 minutes were very epic.

From what I hear, the campaign to save the show is having an impact. There are solid numbers (in the millions) and this is a really good week to share those with the networks, since they're working on their new line ups.

Oh yeah, it was excellent! The show is back to its old self.

I agree, that was the best episode all season. Very satisfying.

If that ends up being the final episode, they ended in a decent place all things considered. Amenadiel's arc reached a satisfying end. Charlotte found the redemption she wanted. Chloe got the answer she needed, if not the one she wanted. Lucifer reached a catharsis of his own. Really only Maze and...the little therapist woman whose name escapes me...got left hanging. For an unanticipated series finale...it could have been much worse.

Linda. I thought they had a fairly good making up, but I still don't know what Maze's problem was to begin with. I guess she was just new to emotions like love and jealousy and couldn't handle them.

They could have made a whole episode out of Maze escaping and I'd watch it.

I hope it gets picked up, but still, I'll be OK if not. These last two episodes were great and I can't believe they would have been nearly as good if the series hadn't been cancelled and the writers had to wind things up. The status quo was getting beyond stale. This way there is an end. Plus, if there is a new series, it can pick-up where it left off, or start over.

I'm a little confused that killing Cain brought the devil face back - certainly not a solidly immoral act (since Cain would have chased down all of Chloe's loved ones), and certainly nothing to cause regret in Lucifer (which seems to this world's hell (and boy am I in trouble when I die).

I think it's because he finally accepted himself for who he was, and took responsibility for it.

I think it's not because of killing Cain, per se. It's not even because he tortured Cain by reminding him repeatedly that he is a monster, so that Cain would be shunted into hell. It's because he enjoyed torturing him.

Anyone heard if the show has been picked up by another network?
