Lucifer - Lucifer! Lucifer! Lucifer!


Faux-Lucifer's (Tom Ellis) tenure turns out to be shorter than expected as several characters realize that the Devil's twin brother Michael is attempting to pass himself off as Lucifer Morningstar. Michael admits the truth to Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) in hopes of enlisting her help to tear apart Lucifer's life on Earth and force the Devil to return (in order to prove something to himself and his family). Before discovering the truth on her own, Chloe (Lauren German) and Michael will work on a case together solving a murder of a would-be astronaut at a Mars training facility. While he may look like Lucifer, Michael can't quite get his brother's mirth right leading to an odd series of interrogation scenes with Lucifer being the more responsible partner and Chloe lashing out at the suspects.

"Lucifer! Lucifer! Lucifer!" offers some fun bits including Dan's (Kevin Alejandro) growing paranoia of what Lucifer's new nice guy routine is secretly hiding and the rising sexual tension between Chloe and Michael (albeit only a ploy to get Michael in a compromising position to test out her theory that he is indeed not Lucifer). Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) and Linda's (Rachael Harris) concern over what happens to their child if Lucifer did leave Hell, along with Michael's parting words to Amenadiel, foreshadow possible trouble on that horizon. Michael's exposure isn't quick enough to prevent any harm to Chloe, both in the tryst Michael and Maze play out for her benefit and in the bombshell he drops concerning Chloe's parentage. It would seem the Detective has some questions that need answers.
