MY THOUGHTS: Lucifer Season 1 Episode 11 - "St. Lucifer"
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 Decker, 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 philanthropist Tim Dunlear is found dead, Lucifer explores his good side by becoming a benefactor for Tim's glitzy Los Angeles charity.
Well, this episode opens with Chloe in Lucifer's bed...ahahaha! Yup! After showing up at his place drunk and passing out in the previous episode, the assumption would be that they did the "nasty." Right!?! Well, hate to disappoint, they didn't...that's hilarious! Just love Lucifer and Chloe's banter. Those two has great chemistry! Lucifer said "no" to Chloe!?! Wow!
In this episode, he's trying on that "good guy" suit by being good and charitable!?! Hmmm... Let's see how that goes....haha! As Lucifer explores that possibility, a murder of a philanthropist gets Lucifer on a roll on being "St. Lucifer." As in all the previous episodes, Lucifer explores another aspect of himself...this time he's exploring doing good and how it feels.
On the other side of things, Amenadiel is waiting on Malcolm to do his "job." He will pretty much do what needs to be done to get Lucifer back to Hell...which includes working with a beautiful demon. However, it seems that Amenadiel is getting bored waiting. Looks like Maze is feeling lonely since Lucifer remains angry with her. Where does she go for company!?! She goes to Lucifer's brother...Amenadiel. Huh! And boy, they definitely kept each other company. Even angels are vulnerable to temptation...haha! And...Oh my! Amendiel and Maze!?!
Not only that, Dan figures out what Malcolm is up to. All tied up, Dan has to figure out how to stop him from killing Lucifer. Very clever Dan...kicking Malcolm's food out of his hands. Looks like Dan is putting things together while Malcolm talks. Yeah, Malcolm talks too much, especially telling Dan about what happened to him. However, Malcolm does not complete his task, especially when Lucifer bribes him out of it.
Interesting to find a twist regarding Lucifer's immortality. We have already seen how he has become vulnerable in connection with his curiosity with human behavior and life in Los Angeles. Of course, the issue comes up again after he gets shot by their murder suspect. In the end, the murder of Tim Dunlear gets solved!
Moreover, Lucifer tests a theory regarding his immortality. It seems that he is vulnerable when it comes to Chloe. Lucifer is realizing many things in this episode... one, he's giving Maze another chance and, two, he's vulnerable when Chloe is around. Huh...she makes him "all too human." She makes him vulnerable.
Until the next episode!
For now, here's a preview of Episode 12 - "#TeamLucifer"
