Lucifer - The One with the Baby Carrot

While Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe (Lauren German) investigate the murder of a comedian whose jokes were stolen by one of his colleagues, the show continues to lay the groundwork of the mysterious Sinnerman. Despite the lack of evidence that the mystery man even exists, Lieutenant Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling) confides in Lucifer that he's had run-ins with the Sinnerman before and warns him off continuing down a dangerous path. While I still think there's a 50/50 chance Pierce will be revealed to be the devil doppelganger at some point this season, making him and ally of Lucifer is an interesting path to go down. Either way, I'm curious to see where the pair's secret investigation takes them.

While the murder of the week isn't that interesting, and a bit convoluted in terms of whose jokes were actually whose and how they are a motive for the crime, it does provide a fun moment of Lucifer getting to heckle Detective Douche (Kevin Alejandro) on stage at open-mic night. The subplot of Linda (Rachael Harris) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) disposing of multiple sets of angel wings provides one of the show's best lines as well as a better understanding for Linda about Amenadiel's world and the angel looking at Lucifer, and how his brother tries his patience, in a different light.
