Lucifer - The Last Heartbreak

While investigating a double-homicide reminiscent of one that Pierce (Tom Welling) solved decades ago in one of his former lives, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) struggles to adjust to the world's oldest murderer cozying up to Chloe (Lauren German). "The Last Heartbreak" is memorable mostly for giving us our first real glimpse into some of Cain's past. Despite the obvious attraction between the pair, it's obvious well-before the final reveal that Cain has decided to pursue Chloe not out of that attraction but for purely selfish reasons related to his desire to end his immortality.

Maze's (Lesley-Ann Brandt) breakdown continues in this episode as she alienates both Detective Douche (Kevin Alejandro) and Trixie (Scarlett Estevez). Moving out by the end of the episode, it appears that Maze may finally hit rock bottom in next week's episode. Despite warnings from Linda, Amenadiel decides to tell Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) the truth about her missing past (and time in Hell when his mother was walking around in her body). All three storylines are likely to continue to complicate Lucifer's life, and those around him, in the weeks to come.
