Lucifer Morningstar has decided he’s had enough of being the dutiful servant in Hell and decides to spend some time on Earth to better understand humanity. He settles in Los Angeles – the City of Angels.
I watched the first season of Lucifer as it aired, enjoyed it, then promptly forgot about it. Not sure what happened there, but while killing TV time before fall premiers started I was able to binge the second season.
Lucifer, Tom Ellis, ends up revealing to his therapist, Rachael Harris, that he’s really, and truly, the devil. He shows her his true form and seeing her reactions was one of my favorite parts of the season. She reacted like any normal person would and seeing her learn everything about Heaven and Hell and Lucifer’s family was great.
The big thing with this season was that Lucifer’s mother, Tricia Helfer, showed up. She isn’t a fan of humans, but wants to have a good relationship with her sons. I had a hard time believing that as her motivation and Lucifer did too. Nothing really came of that, though. She ended up escaping to another universe or dimension or world. Some place where she could create what she wanted. And I assume, that is that, with her.
We learned some about Chloe and there was some movement on a relationship between her and Lucifer, though, I really don’t know how I feel about that.
What I enjoy most with this show is the mythology. Well, the mythology and Mazikeen, Lesley-Ann Brandt. She’s my favorite by so much. She’s a badass, and a demon, and she’s growing as a person. She says wildly inappropriate things and I love her.
Season 3 has already aired, but it’s not available on any of the streaming services I have, so I’m not sure when I’ll get to watch it. I’m going to try and not forget about the show though because it really is entertaining.
