Lucifer - Sweet Kicks

Wanting to explore his new exciting new mortality after being shot by Detective Decker (Lauren German), and taking advantage of the ambitions of Lieutenant Monroe (Dawn Olivieri), Lucifer (Tom Ellis) worms his way onto another murder case, this one involving an innocent bystander who was killed during a gang-related shooting. Helping solve the case not only gives Lucifer another interesting diversion but its successful conclusion also earns him a role as an official civilian consultant for the LAPD (cementing his unorthodox partnership with Chloe without the struggle of forcing himself onto each case of the week over the remainder of the season).

Realizing Lucifer's continued reckless behavior and increased mortality is a dangerous combination forces Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) to make a deal with the devil (so to speak). Actually the demon decides to take Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) up on his offer, hoping the angel may be able to find a way to do the one thing she cannot: convince Lucifer to return to Hell. The angel's choice to befriend Dr. Martin (Rachael Harris) foreshadows trouble for the devil in the days to come. The closing scene also suggests how far Mazikeen might go to protect her master from himself which can't be good for the plucky detective.
