- Title: Lucifer – St. Lucifer
- wiki: link
Revelations are in store for the former ruler of Hell in “St. Lucifer.” Recieving unexpected pleasure in not taking advantage of Chloe (Lauren German), and spurred on by the murder investigation into a former bad-boy basketball player turned community activist, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) attempts to recreate the joy of doing good for his own selfish purposes. While going about it all wrong, and for all the wrong reasons, the devil will still get around to solving the murder of the week. However, it’s how he solves it that proves the most interesting facet of the episode and picks up a thread I’ve been waiting to the series to tug on for most of its First Season.
Previously establishing Lucifer’s immortality is in question, “St. Lucifer” reveals that not just anyone can kill him, be it a murder suspect or a corrupt cop put up to it by a pissed off angel. The reveal works quite well and confirms what I suspected since Chloe shot Lucifer early in the season. Lucifer being shot wasn’t the important piece of information. Chloe being the one who was able to wound the devil is the key as the show makes an important turn in Lucifer’s relationship with his favorite detective. I’d also suspect Lucifer might expend some energy tracking down a certain coin and its new owner.
As to why Chloe can hurt him, or why he can hurt himself while in her presence (I’ll admit, I didn’t see that coming), we have plenty of time for the show’s writers to delve into possibilities now that the show has been renewed for another season. It seems people want the devil to extend his vacation awhile longer. As for Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt), I was more interested in her new friendship from the last episode than her new lover in this one but it does open up a more possiblities for the character going forward.
