Lucifer is back.
Following a brief hiatus Lucifer returns to FOX on Monday, offering an episode that sees the horned one attempting to dive back into his role as assistant to the LAPD as if nothing had happened.
However in his absence hearts have hardened, and Lucifer discovers that regaining Chloe Decker's trust is now an almost impossible task. The situation is further exacerbated by a new woman in Lucifer's life, whom he casually introduces as Candy Morningstar.
While Chloe goes solo on a new investigation, Charlotte uses her son's return as an opportunity to invite him to assist her in her latest plan to get back to Heaven, and Amenadiel challenges Lucifer on his recent actions.
We've seen the episode a little early, thanks to our friends at FOX, and have a collection of teasers for you below.
As always, we avoid outright spoilers and plot point reveals that might ruin things a bit, but we suggest proceeding with caution anyway, as one man's teaser is another man's spoiler, as the old saying we just made up goes.
So Over it
When we last checked in on Chloe Decker she was searching an empty Lux for Luci.
Fast forward two weeks and Lucifer’s abrupt leave-taking has had time to sink in. Hats off to Lauren German who nails Chloe’s sense of surprise, anger, frustration and deep hurt at his just-as-sudden return.
Not only that, but Lucifer comes bearing baggage in the form of a new wife, Candy Morningstar, whose presence proves the tipping point for Detective Decker.
Chloe really gets to vent this week — first when she’s grilling a suspect who has likewise had to put up with a “selfish and immature” partner, and also when undercover, she poses as Candy and calls ‘husband’ Lucifer on all of his shortcomings.
