Lucifer - A Good Day to Die

With Chloe (Lauren German) slowly dying in a hospital bed, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) organizes the troops for a desperate plan. Choosing to kill himself, temporarily, Lucifer returns to Hell in search of the college professor (Tim DeKay) who alone knows the formula to the designer poison antidote. With many of Lucifer's plans, things don't got quite a smoothly as he hoped. The show certainly pulls out all the stops to deliver a strong mid-season finale.

"A Good Day to Die" clues us in on several small points. First, a personal Hell is waiting for everyone - including Lucifer who almost gets trapped stabbing his brother Uriel (Michael Imperioli) for all eternity. Second, despite her evil machinations, Mum (Tricia Helfer) does prove her genuine concern for Lucifer as she chooses to return to Hell to help Lucifer back to Earth. She isn't the only one who gets a big heroic moment, as Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) steps up to prevent the doctors from moving their patient before Lucifer can return with the cure in a simple, yet visually stunning, sequence. Chloe's survival is expected, but Lucifer's final move heading into the show's mid-season break is surprising. Leaving his club, friends, and Chloe behind, where has Lucifer gone?
