Lucifer - A Devil of My Word

Straight on the heels of news that FOX has decided not to renew the show, Lucifer presents its season (and now series) finale. Thanks to the evidence left behind from her investigation into Pierce (Tom Welling), it doesn't take long for Dan (Kevin Alejandro), Lucifer (Tom Ellis), Ella (Aimee Garcia), and Chloe (Lauren German) all to come to the conclusion that the police captain murdered Charlotte Richards (Tricia Helfer) and is framing a patsy for the crime. The result offers a final showdown between the Devil and the world's first murderer in a finale that wraps up the Sinnerman arc but leaves several questions unanswered concerning the future of Lucifer and his detective.

It is nice to see the finale offer a bit of redemption for Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) who gets to kick some ass and reconnect with a friend before the end. Following up on Amenadiel's (D.B. Woodside) recent revelation, Lucifer discovers the truth about the return of his wings (which come in handy during the climax) and the absence of his Devil's face (which makes one important final appearance). Chloe coming to terms with the impossibility of her partner, and finally seeing Lucifer for who (and what) he is, leaves the show one hell of cliffhanger. If no other network picks up the show, and if FOX doesn't reconsider the cancellation, fans will be left to guess what might happen next now that all the cards are on the table. If this be the end, Lucifer gave us one hell of a ride.
