lucifer-a-devil-of-my-word

Straight on the heels of news that FOX has decided not to renew the show, Lucifer presents its season (and now series) finale. Thanks to the evidence left behind from her investigation into Pierce (Tom Welling), it doesn’t take long for Dan (Kevin Alejandro), Lucifer (Tom Ellis), Ella (Aimee Garcia), and Chloe (Lauren German) all to come to the conclusion that the police captain murdered Charlotte Richards (Tricia Helfer) and is framing a patsy for the crime. The result offers a final showdown between the Devil and the world’s first murderer in a finale that wraps up the Sinnerman arc but leaves several questions unanswered concerning the future of Lucifer and his detective.

lucifer-quintessential-deckerstar

There’s a bit of deja vu in play in “Quintessential Deckerstar” as Lucifer (Tom Ellis) attempts to force the old normality back onto his relationship with Chloe (Lauren German). We also get a murder of the week, an apparent home invasion gone wrong which will tie back into Charlotte‘s (Tricia Helfer) past as a defense attorney, and a series of events involving Pierce (Tom Welling) and Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) which build on season-long arcs and will lead directly into next week’s season finale.

lucifer-all-hands-on-decker

While Lucifer (Tom Ellis) tries to understand his partner’s perplexing decision to marry Pierce (Tom Welling) working a murder at a dog show with Dan (Kevin Alejandro), the ladies throw Chloe (Lauren German) a bachelorette party (although multiple guests have their own reasons for showing up). “All Hands on Decker” is pretty boilerplate Lucifer. The devil makes outrageous choices (such as taking on Chloe’s role and expecting Dan to be more like him), but eventually is lead to the truth he was seeking all along.

lucifer-anything-pierce-can-do-i-can-do-better

It’s been a common theme of Lucifer that people, angels, demons, immortal cursed beings, and devils don’t always make the best choices. After discovering he is mortal but no longer wants to die, Pierce (Tom Welling) decides to try and win back Chloe (Lauren German) which pushes Lucifer (Tom Ellis) to try and out-do Pierce at every turn. Attempting not to win Chloe’s heart but instead belittle her other suitor at every turn, the result leads to only making Chloe more frustrated and ultimately making a rather rash decision concerning the man who first chooses to open his heart up to her.

lucifer-the-angel-of-san-bernadeno

Maze‘s (Lesley-Ann Brandt) dark turn continues this week as she helps Pierce (Tom Welling) gaslight Lucifer (Tom Ellis) by turning the devil’s attention away from the immortal moving in on his girl while distracting him with the idea that his father may be controlling him in his sleep. Refusing to go back to sleep, Lucifer’s behavior only becomes more erratic while Chloe (Lauren German) comes awfully close to giving Pierce exactly what he wants. The cruelty by Maze is chilling while an out-of-control, and therefore unbelievable, Lucifer attempts to unsuccessfully spill the beans to the detective about who exactly she is sharing her bed with.

lucifer-the-last-heartbreak

While investigating a double-homicide reminiscent of one that Pierce (Tom Welling) solved decades ago in one of his former lives, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) struggles to adjust to the world’s oldest murderer cozying up to Chloe (Lauren German). “The Last Heartbreak” is memorable mostly for giving us our first real glimpse into some of Cain’s past. Despite the obvious attraction between the pair, it’s obvious well-before the final reveal that Cain has decided to pursue Chloe not out of that attraction but for purely selfish reasons related to his desire to end his immortality.

lucifer-infernal-guinea-pig

Whoever coined the phrase “the devil is in the details” obviously never met Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis). While there is a murder of the week to solve and some lingering drama between Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and her friends, the main focus of “Infernal Guinea Pig” is Lucifer’s latest attempt to defy his father and help Pierce (Tom Welling) find a way to die. This week that involves returning to Hell, grabbing Abel’s soul, and putting it in a recently deceased body on Earth (thus negating the murder that caused Cain’s curse). While one of Lucifer’s better plans involving the immortal police captain, things go quickly awry when Lucifer puts Abel not in and elderly black man but a vivacious young woman (Lauren Lapkus) who they immediately lose.

lucifer-high-school-poppycock-1

The murder of an author who based her sci-fi series off her own high school experiences leads Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe (Lauren German) to a high school reunion in search of a killer and the missing manuscript of the series’ finale (which Lucifer hopes may hold the key to solve his own writers block). Getting wrapped up in the soapish sci-fi novels, “High School Poppycock” allows Chloe to be a bit more of the out-of-control fangirl while leaving Lucifer to eventually whittle away all their suspects. The episode’s B-story involving Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) torturing Linda (Rachael Harris) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) for their secret relationship ties in when she sets the doctor up with one of the murder suspects in an awkward blind date.

lucifer-til-death-do-us-part

Between attempts of trying to kill Pierce (Tom Welling), Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and the the immortal help Chloe (Lauren German) with the murder of a teacher found in a wood-chipper on an otherwise quiet suburban street. Learning that the woman once cooked street drugs turns the investigation onto a Korean gang leader (Steve Suh), but despite Lucifer convincing the man to confess to various crimes he isn’t their killer. Unfortunately for Pierce, this leads to one of the show’s more unconventional undercover assignments as the neighborhood’s new couple. Annoying his new “husband” doesn’t get Lucifer any closer to finding a way to kill him, but it does serve as the beginning of a friendship between the pair. Oh, and it also catches them a killer.

lucifer-all-about-her

While temporarily stymied as to Pierce‘s (Tom Welling) real motives for insinuating himself into his life, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) works to regain Chloe‘s (Lauren German) trust in helping with the murder of a local surfer declaring the day “Detective Day.” Lucifer may struggle with finding a way to properly butter-up his partner, and initially proves less useful to the case than Detective Douche (Kevin Alejandro) going undercover with the prime suspects, but he will get some answers from Pierce who comes clean about Lucifer’s abduction, his interest in Chloe, and what he truly desires.
