JASMINE's THOUGHTS on Lucifer Season 1 Episode 10 - "Pops"
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
Lucifer and Chloe are tasked with solving the murder of a prominent restauranteur. When they meet his son, they suspect he played a part in the death.
Lucifer continues to aid Chloe on cases, this time, this murder case seems to hit close to home. The murder of a prominent restauranteur has gotten Lucifer worked up, especially when the son is considered a suspect. As the investigation begins, Chloe's mother is in town. Well, it looks like parent and child relations...and all the issues that come with it...are the common theme in this episode.
These strained relationships with the parentals also affects the people around them, especially Trixie. However, she takes it in stride for a child. Funny how Trixie seeks out Lucifer when situations get tense between her mother and grandmother. Trixie is very preceptive! Even the relationship between Chloe and Dan is already strained...and Lucifer's meddling isn't helping. And...I was hoping Dan and Chloe would reconcile. Maybe it may happen, but it looks like there will be a lot of obstacles in their way.
On the other side, Maze is seeking help from Dr. Martin!?! Interesting... Looks like this demon is also vulnerable to human emotions and vulnerabilities. Wow...the longer these supernatural beings stay on Earth, the more they become susceptible to human feelings!
Will Amenadiel's plan to murder Lucifer go off as planned!?! Hmmm...looks like Dan wants to kill Lucifer himself...haha! Amenadiel seems to be desperate in sending Lucifer back to Hell since he has recruited Malcolm.
In the end, the case is solved and they come to some realizations in regards to their relationships with their parents. Despite Lucifer and Chloe's resentments towards their parents, they are more like them whether like it or not...haha!
What!!! Chloe is drunk! She went to Lucifer's place! This is not good...haha! Or is it!?! LOL!
Until the next episode!
