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…

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…
