Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 24

“A Devil of My Word” Lucifer closes out its third season -and most likely the series itself- with a murder investigation, characters dealing with their grief and a game changing cliffhanger ending. The episode picks up from last week with Charlotte’s body being removed from where she was murdered and almost immediately starts with the…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 23

“Quintessential Deckerstar” Lucifer delivers a lot on its last stop before the season finale with lessons learned, characters redeemed and very moving storytelling. This is one of those episodes of a TV show that doesn’t seem to come around too often; one that begins seeming like a fairly casual episode and ends up punching the…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 22

“All Hands on Decker” Lucifer takes a break from the established dynamics when Dan and Lucifer work together on a case and Ella takes charge of planning Chloe’s bachelorette party. Overcoming fear is at the heart of this episode in a lot of ways and the show explores this in wildly different ways. Lucifer’s biggest…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 21

“Anything Pierce Can Do I Can Do Better” Lucifer deals with the fallout of the previous episode and explores the implications of Cain now being mortal and how that relates to his relationship with Chloe.

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 20

“The Angel of San Bernadino” Lucifer returns from hiatus to develop the Chloe/Cain relationship as the title character worries about his night time activities. This episode picks up around a month after the previous one which makes it roughly real time for storytelling purposes. The time lapse is taken into account by allowing things to…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 19

“Orange is the New Maze” Lucifer continues to deal with Maze’ self destructive behaviour as Lucifer becomes more jealous of Chloe’s relationship with Cain. I always enjoy an episode that gives Maze the focus. The reason for that is that she is such an unpredictable character that the end result is always entertaining. More often…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 18

“The Last Heartbreak” Lucifer continues to explore the Cain/Chloe connection when a murder is reminiscent of a case that Cain solved back in 1958. I wondered how long it would take to deliver a Cain flashback and this episode gives me my answer. It’s an old trope when immortal characters are involved and it’s something…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 17

“Let Pinhead Sing” Lucifer explore the dangers of celebrity when a popular singer’s life is threatened as questions of mortality start to weigh heavily on the Prince of Darkness. The mortality in question is Chloe’s. Last week‘s near miss with the bomb while reaffirming his partnership with Chloe has made Lucifer realise that her life…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 16

“Infernal Guinea-Pig” Lucifer continues to work on Cain’s immortal problem by doing its own form of rewriting history and putting Cain’s brother Abel into a new body. Unbreakable loops is the main through line for this episode as the idea touches most of the characters in one form or another. The most obvious is the…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 15

“High School Poppycock” Lucifer embraces High School drama when the murder of the author of a Young Adult book series causes Chloe to consider lost experiences. Writer’s block is Lucifer’s particular issue in this episode. He is still no further forward in finding a way to kill Cain and is immensely frustrated by this. The…
