Yay, Deadline reports it was renewed. It is not the best show ever, but I enjoy the chemistry the cast members have with each other.

Acting is good and saves the show but the stories need more creativity

Id also like Lucifer to show more powers but you cant deny the actor's charm and it's a good show to learn seduction techniques

Well this week's was hot and cold. Him going soft is getting old. I want him to be the devil, damn it.

But the dialog was priceless. "I love LA. Even the homeless have an IMDB page."

Mazi and Amen getting busy was an interesting twist.

BTW does anyone else think Ellis would make a really awesome Bond? He can turn on the charm or menace like no other.

He's a really good actor with a strong presence and nice charisma. He was also great as the lead on last year's canceled Rush.

I could see him as Bond, though I still think Clive Owen would be best.

I think he's simply too old for what they're trying to sell.

Loved the line about Lucifer being blonde and his response. I was literally thinking about how he should have been blonde like in the comic just before hittng play on the ep.

I think that line flew over the heads of about 99.9% of Lucifer's audience. I'm surprised the writers are even aware the property was once a comic book.

I swear, if you go to the official "Lucifer" FB page it's just full of middle aged chicks who pretty much want to fuck the lead actor Tom Ellis/Lucifer.

Yeah, I doubt most of them know of the show's DC/Vertigo Origins. To be fair, since the line made it in, I'm guessing the writers have a little knowledge of this fact.

Now that's how you do a finale! I'm looking at you Supergirl.

Not only moving characters forwards, but reshuffling the pieces on the board, and introducing new players.

Kudos to writers as well, because they have done a great job from episode to episode keeping Lucifers snark and dialogue consistent.

Looking toward to season 2 - though I hope they keep a short episode order. I'm sure there will be some interesting casting news in the off season.

If people are wondering what soul broke out of Hell...

Spoiler:
I'll assume it's Lilith, Adam's first wife and the mother of demons in Jewish lore.


I thought this was an okay finale. It didn't really click for me because it felt out of sync with Lucifer's regular formula.

I'm guessing going forward they won't alter that formula if ratings remain steady. I doubt we get much on the exact relationship between Lucifer and Chloe anytime in season two.

Can someone explain that strange vision Lucifer had after he was shot?

As he explained later, a very scary soul has escaped from Hell. Apparently it was a vision from God.

I didn't think much of the production design for Hell but I'm guessing we'll never see it used again.

Watched the pilot solely based on the fact that this Lucifer is based on the one created by Neil Gaiman. Ok, this wasn't nearly as good as any of that, but the show hooked me. I really enjoy it and I'm glad we're getting a second season.

Lucifer said who escaped:

Spoiler:
Mom. Haven't read the comics, so not sure if that's the same person or not. I'm assuming not.

My spoiler indicates which being I believe they had Lucifer call Mom. That was just a cute writer's trick to tease viewers for next season. The being didn't physically birth Lucifer.

Also, shows don't do 26 episodes in a season. Usually, a full season order is 22 or 24 episodes.
