Lucifer - Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam

An unforeseen consequence of God's(Dennis Haysbert) appearance on Earth is revealed in "Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam" as people begin breaking into song and dance in his prescence, although no one but Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is aware of it afterwards. All the main characters get a number here highlighted by Lucifer's duet of "I Dreamed a Dream" with his father and the surprise of Trixie (Scarlett Estevez) singing "Smile." While not all the members of the cast have the singing voice of the show's star, the staging of the numbers proves quite entertaining such as in Ella (Aimee Garcia) and Mazikeen's (Lesley-Ann Brandt) mashup of "Bad to the Bone" and "No Scrubs."

Playing up the Lucifer's frustration of his father sticking around, many of the most memorable moments are in other characters having interactions with the almighty including a squirming Dan (Kevin Alejandro) who discovers he had an affair with God's wife and Chloe (Lauren German) standing up for Lucifer and giving God a piece of her mind. Sure, the episode goes out of its way to keep Ella and God from bumping into each other, but there's still plenty of fun with God hanging out with Lucifer (including a father/son therapy session). Despite Lucifer's pain, the musical aspect creates a mostly lighthearted episode whose tone turns on a dime in its final scene with a revelation from God that even the Devil never saw coming.
