Lucifer - BluBallz television review

“BluBallz” relies on one of the oldest television tropes of keeping Chloe (Lauren German) and Lucifer (Tom Ellis) from getting closer by the introduction of an ex (Justin Bruening) as a potential murder victim in their latest case and Lucifer completely misreading how to handle the situation. Taking questionable advice is the theme of the episode’s B-story in which Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) attempts to become more emotionally available by adopting Ella‘s (Aimee Garcia) personality. The weakest episode of the season so far is really only memorable for its final moments in which Lucifer and Chloe’s relationship gets physical and Michael steps back in for a little mischief by allowing Dan (Kevin Alejandro) to see an entirely new side of Lucifer Morningstar.

Lucifer - Detective Amenadiel television review

After a couple of strong, but more gimmicky, episodes, Lucifer gets back to business with an episode where the murder is secondary to two larger series arcs playing out. The circumstances of the murder being at a nunnery, and Chloe (Lauren German) temporarily needing space from Lucifer (Tom Ellis), allows for Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) to step-in for an episode and help solve the crime. Discovering that the nuns are drawn to him, much like others are drawn to his brother, not only helps in the case but also allows Amenadiel to come to conclusions about his effect on humans and answer the larger question about Lucifer’s effect on humans and Chloe’s effect on him.

Lucifer - It Never Ends Well for the Chicken television review

Once upon a time, the Devil went to New York City. Lucifer (Tom Ellis) tells Trixie (Scarlett Estevez) the story of his ring, not realizing that Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) has put her up to it in order to learn more about the secret which Michael foreshadowed earlier in the season. Presented in black-and-white, the story features several of the show’s stars as the Devil takes care to make it more interesting to his audience. The result is a stylish episode that both works as a standalone tale and part of the larger season arc as we see its themes creep into the storytelling from time to time. And, not least importantly, the story introduces us to Lilith, also played by Lesley-Ann Brandt, the mother of all demons.

Lucifer - ¡Diablo! television review

Apprised of the situation by Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), the real Lucifer (Tom Ellis) returns from Hell to find Michael and attempt to undo the damage his twin brother has caused in Lucifer’s absence from Los Angeles. Lucifer and Chloe‘s (Lauren German) reunion is bittersweet given Michael’s bombshell about the purpose of Chloe’s creation. Unable to immediately find his brother, Lucifer and Chloe work together on a new case involving the murder of a television showrunner Lucifer helped out years ago who decided to use Lucifer to create a TV series about a crime-solving Devil called Lieutenant ¡Diablo!. While the Devil may be flattered, Chloe isn’t all that keen on her character (Brianne Davis) being rewritten as a former stripper turned assistant.

Lucifer - Lucifer! Lucifer! Lucifer! television review

Faux-Lucifer’s (Tom Ellis) tenure turns out to be shorter than expected as several characters realize that the Devil’s twin brother Michael is attempting to pass himself off as Lucifer Morningstar. Michael admits the truth to Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) in hopes of enlisting her help to tear apart Lucifer’s life on Earth and force the Devil to return (in order to prove something to himself and his family). Before discovering the truth on her own, Chloe (Lauren German) and Michael will work on a case together solving a murder of a would-be astronaut at a Mars training facility. While he may look like Lucifer, Michael can’t quite get his brother’s mirth right leading to an odd series of interrogation scenes with Lucifer being the more responsible partner and Chloe lashing out at the suspects.
