MY THOUGHTS: Lucifer Season 1 Episode 4 - "Manly Whatnots"
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
In an effort to get over his infatuation with Chloe, Lucifer decides that he must seduce her. Meanwhile the two team up on a missing girl case and Amenadiel confronts Maze about his concerns about Lucifer.
Well, there's no doubt Lucifer is changing...he seems to be more human the longer he stays in L.A. and with humans. Hmmm...for being the Devil, he seems to be exhibiting more human traits than a Fallen Angel. For sure, Lucifer is not immune to human emotions since he seems to be stumped by the detective's resistance to his charms. What's fascinating is Amenadiel's reaction after Maze licked his face. Hmmm...Lucifer isn't the only one vulnerable to temptation.
It's really funny how Lucifer has a child-like attitude with his experiences in L.A. For being the Devil, Lucifer is extremely curious about human emotions and the things they do. However, there are instances when the Devil shows himself.
Lucifer seems to be more human than he realizes. C'mon! He's going to theray...haha! I am definitely fascinated with this side of Lucifer. This series is showing a more human side to this Fallen Angel who is supposed to be ruling Hell, but instead, he is on vacation...or is he retired!?! He's having fun with his fascination...is it a phase? Or will he enjoy it so much that he forgets he he really is. Looks like Amenadiel has his concerns about it, but how about Maze? Should they both be concerned?
For now, we are beginning to see the consequences of Lucifer leaving Hell. He's becoming more human. But...I would like to see the supernatural consequences of Lucifer's absence in Hell. Amenadiel did mention that to Lucifer...but, when will we see it?!?
For now, here's a preview of Episode 5 - "Sweet Kicks"
