Lucifer - My Brother's Keeper

A search for Ella's (Aimee Garcia) missing older brother (Rey Valentin) turns into a murder investigation when Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) finds the sketchy businessman the brother was meeting with the night before dead in his office. Also missing with the brother are a stash of stolen diamonds which Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe (Lauren German) discover their missing diamond expert was working to illegally clean at the time of the murder. While Lucifer turns out to be wrong about the identity of the murderer, much to Ella's relief, it turns out the Devil knows a blackened soul when he sees one (although that nugget of truth he chooses to keep to himself).

Other non-murder-of-the-week storylines center on Linda (Rachael Harris) freaking out when Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) shows up on her door for therapy, and Lucifer's failed attempts to enlist Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) into helping kill Pierce (Tom Welling). When Amenadiel, after admitting to giving Cain his mark, proves less than helpful, Pierce decides to take a lifetime of frustration out on his "angelic ass" (which turns out to be easier said than done). Other pairings show some promise with Linda agreeing to treat Charlotte (despite the bad memories her presence conjures) and Maze, despite all her bluster, having some fun protecting a new friend from danger while helping her track down her missing brother.
