Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 14

“My Brother’s Keeper” Lucifer explores the concept of brotherhood and the dangers of family loyalty when various characters find their brothers to be disappointing. Taking the limelight this week is the sometimes neglected Ella. She’s around in most episodes and her contribution is always entertaining but she is rarely in the meat of the story….

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 13

“Til Death Do Us Part” Lucifer deals with Cain’s desire to die while focusing on developing unconventional and rarely visited character relationships. It would be fair to say that Lucifer is prone to obsessive behaviour. In a lot of ways it’s the point of of the show. He’s on Earth because he’s tired of Hell…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 12

“All About Her” Lucifer returns the plotting to the present day after a brief hiatus and picks up where it left off on the Pierce reveal. From this point on I’ll call the man that once went by Pierce Cain because that’s who he really is and the show will be exploring the impact of…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 11

“City of Angels?” Lucifer returns from Winter Hiatus with a trip back in time to events that happened before “Pilot” showing Lucifer’s early days on Earth. This episode marks the final unused season 2 episode and represents another slight break in the normal format by taking the characters we know and showing how they were…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 10

“The Sin Bin” Lucifer begins the winter hiatus by closing off the Sinnerman arc and delivering an unexpected twist ending to mull over until the show returns. I mentioned last week that the Sinnerman reveal felt underwhelming considering the build-up. I’m not sure what could have made it any more satisfying but it felt at…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 9

“The Sinnerman” Lucifer introduces the mysterious Sinnerman as Maze makes her welcome return from an extended hiatus to find that so much has changed since she left. Maze is a character that has been sorely missed this season. Outside of the brilliant “Mr. and Mrs. Mazikeen Smith” she hasn’t been seen and the show has…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 8

“Chloe Does Lucifer” Lucifer continues to explore the theme of self identity present throughout the season through the lens of superficial people using a dating app. The main thrust of this episode could be summed up by the question “what is truth?”; it’s something that it continues to ask in various forms though does so…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 7

“Off the Record” Lucifer dusts off another unused season 2 episode and breaks with the normal format to explore how an obsessed reporter sees Lucifer. The episode opens with an unfamiliar character named Reese (Patrick Fabian) regaining consciousness after some kind of brush with death and choosing to see this as a second chance to…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 6

“Vegas With Some Radish” Lucifer takes the Prince of Darkness to Vegas to investigate the murder of his “Wife” Candy in another rescued season 2 episode. The prospect of incorporating unaired season 2 episodes into the third season is a little baffling when you really think about it. Even at their most disposable those episodes…

Lucifer – Season 3 Episode 5

“Welcome Back, Charlotte Richards” Lucifer brings the real Charlotte Richards into the mix while Lucifer continues in his efforts to resolve his Daddy issues. Charlotte Richards is a character we haven’t seen on the show before other than a couple of fleeting glimpses. When she was introduced Lucifer’s Mother had already gained possession of her…
