Can the Devil be redeemed? “Take Me Back to Hell” begins with Lucifer (Tom Ellis) framed for murder and finally willing to allow Amenadiel (DB Woodside) to return him to Hell. However, given the mess the pair have made with both Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and Malcolm (Kevin Rankin), Lucifer’s brother convinces him to stay around long enough to put things right. Although that choice nearly gets both of them killed, it also sets up the show’s upcoming Second Season.
Darth Vader‘s mission on Shi-torum comes to a close as the Dark Lord of the Sith is able to fight off the attack of the force-sensitives Morit and Aiolin before returning to the front lines and offering Trios the Imperial support the new queen needs to put down the anti-Imperial rebellion on the planet.
When Watson‘s (Lucy Liu) inside man turns up dead Morland Holmes (John Noble) becomes Sherlock Holmes‘ (Jonny Lee Miller) prime suspect. After fuming at Watson for keeping such a dangerous secret from him for weeks, Sherlock jumps into the case and, despite what he may wish to be true, quickly proves his father wasn’t behind the hiring of an amateur hitman (Yul Vazquez). The truth, however, will shock him as the show teases the possible return of a fan-favorite character in the season’s remaining two episodes.
The relationship between estranged siblings is the theme that runs through both storylines in Once Upon a Time. The main story returns Cora (Barbara Hershey) as Regina (Lana Parrilla) enlists her mother’s help to try and prevent Zelena (Rebecca Mader) from accepting Hades‘ (Greg Germann) offer. During the flashbacks of the episode we learn that the two sisters met once, well before their first run-in in Storybrooke. It’s this revelation, and not Cora’s sinister plan to wipe her daughter’s memory, that eventually allows the sisters to call a truce. Despite her misgivings, Regina is now willing to trust her sister, but it appears Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) and Peter Pan (Robbie Kay) have other plans.

When arranging a situation where the prison would have to evacuated and then hitting the bus Adam is on with an IED doesn’t end up killing the target, Yakuza hitmen are sent into the jungle after Adam and five other fleeing convicts.
