JASMINE's THOUGHTS on Lucifer Season 1 Episode 12 - "#TeamLucifer"
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 a woman is found dead on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the investigation leads Lucifer and team into the world of Satanists.
Lucifer is on another case with Chloe, but he actively tries to avoid her due to that vulnerability issue. Since he tested his theory about Chloe, he's been avoiding her for about 3 weeks...haha! Chloe believes that the murder is connected to Lucifer in one way or another, especially when they discover the woman's death is connected to a Satanic cult. Of course, Lucifer is infuriated with how these Satanists portray and worship him. Funny how Lucifer seems to relate with each of their cases. This time, he relates by way of "absentee father." How ironic...lol! Funny how the joke about Lucifer and the goat was mentioned in the previous episode, then mentioned and connected into this episode. It further creates that cohesive storyline. Hilarious and well done! Definitely got some laughs on that!
Lucifer is, of course, being childish about this vulnerability issue. What's even more crazy is how Malcolm has become an obsessive fan of Lucifer...to the point that he's creating these crime scenes. Yup, it is to the edge insanity. Lucifer is dumbfounded with this intense attention by Malcolm, but he then realizes how insanely devoted Malcolm is to him...in a weird way, that is. Yeah, there is no doubt about Malcolm's obsession with Lucifer, especially when Lucifer shuns him...haha! Well, after Lucifer turns him away, Malcolm took it hard by framing him for murder!!! Wow!
Hmmm...Amenadiel and Maze seems to be developing some kind of feelings for each other. I guess Lucifer is not the only one vulnerable to life on Earth, especially in Los Angeles. Interesting enough. But, Maze can't seem to follow through with Lucifer's request to send Amenadiel back to heaven. Hmmm...
Lucifer and Amenadiel get into a fight! Whoa! Talk about sibling rivalry, but now, Maze is one of the reason why they are fighting...lol! Definitely, ironic!
Moreover, each case and every event seems be leading to something bigger. Is Malcolm fanboying over Lucifer leading to something else?!? Lucifer is definitely in deep with this case...and not in a good way. Frustrating as it is, Lucifer is not getting out of this one, especially since Chloe finds a dead boy in his club.
With everything that has happened, it has now come this! We'll find out in the next episode as we come to the end of Season One.
Can't wait til the season finale!
