lucifer-city-of-angels

Set before the show’s First Season, “City of Angels?” offers a glimpse at the various series regulars in the early days of Lucifer‘s (Tom Ellis) arrival on Earth long before he had become a nightclub owner or began his partnership with Chloe Decker (Lauren German). Breaking up the current arc, it seems an odd place to insert such an episode that doesn’t (at least initially) add much to the season’s bigger storylines. That said, there’s plenty to enjoy here including the more acrimonious relationship between Lucifer and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) and the angel’s naivete at human existence.

lucifer-the-sinnerman

“The Sinnerman” plays on four themes of Lucifer‘s Third Season. The first, which gives the episode its name, involves the Sinnerman (Kevin Carroll) upping his game by murdering those whom Lucifer (Tom Ellis) has given favors to, and temporary kidnapping Lucifer (for a purpose that seems to support an alternate identity for out season’s big bad), eventually leading to the criminal’s capture and face-to-face with the Devil himself. Is this really the Sinnerman, or has the real villain yet to show his face? Tied into this storyline is the growing sexual tension between Decker (Lauren German) and Pierce (Tom Welling), which even Lucifer begins to pick up on as the episode comes to a close.

lucifer-off-the-record

Rather than focus on Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) or a specific crime of the week, “Off The Record” changes things up by centering an episode on someone effected by the Devil’s actions and becomes obsessed with proving just who and what Lucifer is. The fact that the reporter (Patrick Fabian) is Linda‘s (Rachael Harris) ex-husband, who is spurred on his revenge path by an oblivious Lucifer, adds fuel to the fire. Taken place over the course of multiple seasons, we watch Reese’s obsession grow until the man simply can’t take it any longer.

lucifer-vegas-with-some-radish

Discovering that his ex-wife Candy (Lindsey Gort) is in danger, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) abandons Chloe (Lauren German) on her birthday and heads to Las Vegas with Ella (Aimee Garcia). Although we know why Lucifer entered into the sham marriage with Candy, “Vegas with Some Radish” finally provides some details in the form of flashbacks including their meeting and the pair striking up a deal. In the present, Lucifer decides to make himself bait to lure out the killer who is after Candy’s club leading to a Devil’s night of Vegas crooning on stage complete with Ella dressed as a Vegas showgirl.

lucifer-welcome-back-charlotte-richards

The murder of a pudding chemist brings Charlotte Richards (Tricia Helfer) back to Lucifer as the company’s lawyer. Confused by Charlotte’s return, and wondering if is part of his father’s plan (at least when he’s not distracted by the models dressed up like angels for the rival company’s sexy commercial shoot), Lucifer (Tom Ellis) vows to get to the truth but is unprepared when the lawyer makes a surprise move to jump his bones (after wrongly deducing that she must have been sleeping with Lucifer during the missing months of her life) or the level of her honesty when her efforts at seduction fail.

lucifer-what-would-lucifer-do

Lucifer‘s (Tom Ellis) wheeling and dealing continues as the Devil also uses the latest murder investigation involving a counselor of a reform program to prove to himself, and everyone else, that no one can ever truly change. Meanwhile, Chloe (Lauren German) continues to struggle with her new boss (Tom Welling) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) struggles while walking a mile in Lucifer’s shoes while hoping to discover just what his purpose on Earth is and how it relates to his brother. Murder aside, which is just so-so, the episode is driven by various character insecurities while allowing time for some revelations and truths before our story comes to a close.

lucifer-mr-and-mrs-mazikeen-smith

Feeling a bit restless, and taking advice from Lucifer (Tom Ellis), Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) heads to Canada after the most dangerous bounty she can find. After terrorizing Canada for a few days, Maze catches up with Ben Rivers (Chris McKenna) only to discover he’s more illusive, albeit less murderous, than she’s been led to believe which only makes the chase more spirited… but not in the way Lucifer had intended.

lucifer-the-one-with-the-baby-carrot

While Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe (Lauren German) investigate the murder of a comedian whose jokes were stolen by one of his colleagues, the show continues to lay the groundwork of the mysterious Sinnerman. Despite the lack of evidence that the mystery man even exists, Lieutenant Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling) confides in Lucifer that he’s had run-ins with the Sinnerman before and warns him off continuing down a dangerous path. While I still think there’s a 50/50 chance Pierce will be revealed to be the devil doppelganger at some point this season, making him and ally of Lucifer is an interesting path to go down. Either way, I’m curious to see where the pair’s secret investigation takes them.

Season Three begins with a twist. While the cliffhanger of Lucifer‘s (Tom Ellis) kidnapping at the end of Season Two is central to the plot of the season premiere, it’s not what we expect. Lucifer returns after two days in the desert to find that no one missed him. Chloe (Lauren German) just assumed he flaked again and doesn’t put much credence in his story. The discovery of a murdered man buried in the desert does help convince the detective that there is a case, although Lucifer has other problems to deal with as well besides his partner’s distrust.
