MY THOUGHTS: Lucifer Season 1 Episode 2 - Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil"
About the Show
Lucifer is the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar has resigned his throne and retired to the City of Angels, where he owns an upscale piano bar called Lux. When a beautiful pop star is murdered, for the first time in roughly 10 billion years, he feels something awaken deep within him. Is he actually capable of feelings for a human being? The very thought disturbs him. The murder attracts the attention of LAPD homicide detective Chloe Dancer, who finds herself both repulsed and fascinated by Lucifer. At the same time, God's emissary, the angel Amenadiel, has been sent to Los Angeles to convince Lucifer to return to Hell. But with the City of Angels at his feet and a newfound purpose, Lucifer's having too much fun to go back now.
Based on the comic book series by:
Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar
Lauren German as Chloe Decker
Lesley-Ann Brandt as Maze
D.B. Woodside as Amenadiel
Rachael Harris as Dr. Kim Martin
Kevin Alejandro as Dan
Scarlett Estevez as Trixie
When a movie star's son is killed after being chased by the paparazzi, Chloe takes a deep look into the case with a little help from Lucifer.
Into the second episode, it is apparent Lucifer is changing...for the good?!? Hmmm... maybe not. But, for sure, he's enjoying his time in Los Angeles, especially when he's solving crime(s) with Detective Chloe Decker. However, this case somewhat hits close to Chloe's heart, even though she's supposed to be on medical leave. It doesn't stop her from going to the crime scene. It's Los Angeles! This case involves the paparazzi, and Chloe is determined to find the truth. Even more so, she is intent on figuring out who Lucifer is...haha! The craziest thing is that Lucifer is fascinated with solving crime/finding justice, and he's enjoying himself with it. However, there are those that are not happy that the Devil is not in Hell... Yes, both Heaven and Hell are not happy that Lucifer has left Hell unattended.
We do, however, get more of a background on Chloe Decker, especially on why this case seems to be so important to her. Even Lucifer is curious to know why as well. Interesting to find Lucifer seeking therapy with Dr. Kim Martin...haha! Even the Devil seems to have "issues" he has to deal with. The more Lucifer spends with humans (in Los Angeles), his fascination with humanity increases. However, fascination of his conflicts with who he is. Even Maze has pointed that out to him...hahaha!
Lucifer is beginning show human traits unbecoming of the Devil. It is hilarious at Lucifer uses his charm and wit to help others, especially Chloe. He is captivated with Detective Chloe, especially, since she seems to be immune to his charms.
Let's see where this takes Lucifer.
