Lucifer - Save Lucifer

The penultimate episode of Lucifer's Fourth Season features the death of a local celebrity realtor and Lucifer (Tom Ellis) struggling with becoming more and more demonic. While the murder of the week boils down to family drama and squabbles, Lucifer's transformation is much harder for Chloe (Lauren German) to deal with. In a watershed moment for her character, Chloe accepts Lucifer (devil wings and all) and in doing so allows Lucifer to accept and forgive himself for his past mistakes. Tying back to Chloe's season-long struggle with the bombshell she learned at the end of the previous season, this would allow the season to end on a happy note for both Devil and detective, but fate it seems has other plans. The episode is also notable for the birth of Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) and Linda's (Rachael Harris) child whose mere existence will lead to trouble for everyone involved the the series finale.

In a callback to the prophecy about Hell being unleashed on Earth, Eve (Inbar Lavi) kills Father Kinley (Graham McTavish), who she and Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) had kidnapped. In doing so, Eve also a message with the dying man back to Hell with the priests soul calling for the demons to come to Earth and collect their king (mistakenly believing she and Lucifer can rule in Hell together for all eternity). And so Kinley is directly responsible for the very prophecy he was trying to prevent and Lucifer will have some hard choices to make the series finale.
