    Lucifer was enjoying playing the odd couple sooooo much. :D  And it was hilarious to watch.
    That ending gag with the chainsaw, too. "I thought you would never ask!" :D 
    I do hope that Maze gets over her fit of jealousy. And glad that Linda and Amenadiel continued to date.
    I do wonder if we ever learn more about Abel and just what really happened... I doubt events happened exactly like it is in the Bible in this case.

    Btw, why do people always called him Kane? I thought it was Cain or Kain, no "e"?

    I wondered about the different spelling of Kane/Cain myself? Just modernizing the spelling? Leaving it open that he's NOT THAT Cain? You never know. Even tho he supposedly has admitted he IS that Cain? And HOW will Luci kill him?

    The 2 of them as a couple was a hoot, have to say that Tom Welling did look a bit uncomfortable with the kiss tho. :lol 
    Yeah, Maze needs to get her mojo back, she obviously is attracted to those who are tortured, so they need a new tortured soul.. Dan and Charlotte have hope now.
    Love Mendi and Linda... she seemed to want to end tho, for Maze, but if Maze moves on, then these 2 can heat up the screen again.

    Another very strong episode with several laughs.

    Maze is a gem, between her training with Trixie and her conversation with Ella, man, she's just great in any pairing for comedy purposes. Charlotte and the psy, that should be interesting going forward.

    I like the entire dynamic with Luci and diel, it will be interesting to see how this develops. I had hoped that when Lucifer threatened the brother that his wings would emerge, giving them a sinister take since he doesn't have the devil face anymore.

    As usual (well, mostly) great one liners.. my fave was the fight between Mendi and Kane.. and the look on Luci's face when he saw the wreckage. :lol

    Kane is the spelling of the WWE wrestler. Cain is the biblical spelling.

    Fun episode tonight. The actress playing the "double" role must've had a hoot portraying someone like that.

    I saw that ending coming from a mile away, but it was still well done and I doubted it for a second when the Taxi didn't hit her. Part of me is beyond flabbergasted that Lucifer is going to break his word. Not to bring the comics back into it, but I don't recall him doing that. Ever. I wonder if that's going to have repercussions.

    What I really liked was Able and Charlotte talking and that being what gets Charlotte to return to therapy. TBH, that's pretty close to what I suspected her hell to be; I was thinking that it would be a little bit more elaborate; the killer would kill her family, she'd defend them in court (for some reason) and regardless of how flimsy a job she does, they're always found innocent, the cycle repeats.

    This is also the first time in a long time that Luci used his wings; and to do something so specific without an issue; I wonder if we'll start seeing that more often now.

    I loved how he kept talking about his flock and bragging about.

    Makes sense considering he died at the dawn of civilization.

    I thought it was interesting that Abel's soul landed in a female body, but I thought it got a little cringy at times.

    Great. Have to wait three freaking weeks after that cliffhanger. They better tie up Cain's arc in the next episode or two. I wanna see more of what happens to Charlotte after what happened.

    These random, weeks-long breaks are getting fucking ridiculous! I assume this one is now due to college basketball, but goddamn, not everyone watches college basketball!

    LOL this episode had some amazing jokes. The whole Maze pretending to be Ella and the real one's "She ruined hugging!" reaction... :D 
    Also love how Lucifer, true to his promises, does not lie and straight up told Charlotte everything.
    I wonder what Kane/Pierce's endgame is. I liked the flashback episode to the 60ies and generally how the first murderer of all people became a cop, trying to solve murders.

    So true, when I heard 3 week break I just GRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr'd. Not sure if it is the whole March Madness bit, could also be they think no one watches TV on Spring Breaks too. lolol
    It's not like any of these shows have 22-25 episodes anymore, we're lucky if we get 13 in many cases, they just need to stop the breaks. Okay, mini rant over. :) 


    Poor Ella, she 'was' so trusting, and Maze not only hurt Trixie but she ruined hugs!! Now she'll be remembered as the demon who can ruin HUGS!! lol

    Hopefully Charlotte's situation won't come between Mendi and Linda... but loved that Luci laid out the truth rather thoroughly...
    AND THE WINGS! *cue angelic chorus*
    As for Kane, thought he was just messing with Lucifer...and enjoying the side bennies... but now... maybe he knows about Chloe's special past? And he wants to get killed if he's with her enough? Of course, then again, he's gone down in history as the first killer...yikes.... maybe we still don't know what really happened with Abel.

    For such a "big" episode, it was a really flat episode for me.

    It was beyond obvious that it was Maze gaslighting Lucifer, so that entire subplot was just waiting until Maze admitted it; they couldn't even have Lucifer put it together, which was disappointing. The murder was similarly obvious, it's almost as bad as other "whodunit" murder porn shows where there's nothing clever anymore. I figured Pierce just needed to put someone else first (or even better, willingly die for someone else), but the execution here just seemed weak.

    Even Charlotte's subplot was pretty weak as well. This season is so inconsistent, you've got episodes like Linda's husband which are really clever and fun, then episodes where it's just treading water for 44 minutes and you wonder if they even know what they're doing with their "own" characters.

    I laughed so hard at the "Lucifer trying to stay awake" montage. Some of the weird stuff he does... :D 
    And likewise at the naked Dan in the closet. "Don't call the police! I ... am the police." drops badge
    But yeah, I expected too it was not really Lucifer doing this. Frankly I don't mind. The show is best when it keeps the supernatural stuff to a minimal, as surprising as that sounds.

    Also, Lucifer asking for the handcuffs was another hilarious scene.
    -"I'll return them!"
    -"Ewwww, don't."

    Watching the ep now. The guy who Lucifer recognizes from Bones, was in the exact episode Lucifer mentions. Now that is amusing.

    There comes a point in most series where the show shifts focus to be more about the characters relationships and (mostly in comedies) they also tend to become caricature's of themselves. It seems like this show decided to jump the shark and go all in at the same time.

    These last two episodes have been rough and just plain boring to me. Charlotte is the only character who still holds any interest for me, because everyone else has become so thin and formulaic with no real murder mystery, no "god stuff", there's no substance to it anymore. It's teen drama crap, which is most definitely what I don't want.
