- Title: Lucifer – #TeamLucifer
- wiki: link
Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is having far less fun than usual in the penultimate episode of the show’s First Season. Still unclear as to how Chloe (Lauren German) is affecting his immortality, the devil attempts to put some distance between himself and his favorite police officer. His plan is fouled up by a group of devil worshipers who perform a live sacrifice. Increasingly angered at every aspect of the case, including humanity’s view of him as a wicked goat-creature, Lucifer’s temper gets the better of him more than once, eventually getting him sent home where he has to deal with his angry brother who has a few words for Lucifer about Maze‘s (Lesley-Ann Brandt) attempts to seduce and kill him.
For spending as much time as it needs to set the stage for next week’s season finale, there’s actually quite a bit going on in this week’s episode. The murder of the week, which will eventually get pinned on our protagonist by Malcolm (Kevin Rankin) brings Lucifer’s growing disatisfaction with the status quo to the forefront setting up next week’s episode “Take Me Back to Hell.” Has the devil finally given up his mortal life? Given that the show has been renewed for another season, I doubt it.
