Lucifer - Stewardess Interruptus

After Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Detective Decker's (Lauren German) first attempt to share a moment is interrupted by one of the Devil's fuckbuddies, a stewardess (Jennifer Cheon) who later turns up dead, Chloe begins to quickly reconsider falling for Lucifer. When not one but two murders turn out to be both former lovers, and leads to the discovery of Lucifer's extremely stalkerish #1 fan (Diana Bang), things get even icy between the pair which culminates in a police interrogation of all of Lucifer's recent affairs. The show brilliantly turns the scene from he litany of lovely ladies praising Lucifer's skill in the sack (as Lucifer proudly prances about) to cutting out his legs from underneath him when admitting their was no emotional connection at all.

The big reveal about Chloe before the break almost certainly will alter the focus of the show. While the Devil might not know why, both Mum (Tricia Helfer) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) are now completely onboard with him wooing the detective. It will be interesting to see if their attempts to help the couple belong help or hurt the new phase of the relationship. As for Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt), she continues to struggle with carving out her own niche (but she does help the team corral a murder prospect, in her own slutty-yet-violent way).
