When we last checked in on our favorite horned (or should that read horny?) little devil, Lucifer was just about to come clean to Chloe about his true identity.
However before he could spill the beans he was hit over the head, kidnapped, and driven deep into the desert, where he awoke two days later with no memory of his ordeal, and to the discovery that he had somehow regrown his wings.
Despite recent details of episode shuffling, fans will be pleased to learn the season 3 premiere will pick up on all of these points when the show returns on Oct. 2. Not only that but we'll get a new character too in the form of Tom Welling's no-nonsense Lieutenant Marcus Pierce, who sets hearts aflutter in the precinct.
All this and a new big bad too?
As you may have guessed, we've seen the premiere a little early, thanks to our friends at FOX, and have a number of teasers to share with you. As always, we avoid outright spoilers and plot point reveals that would inevitably ruin your enjoyment of the show. However, we suggest a modicum of caution nevertheless. This is the internet after all, and just who are these ScreenSpy people anyway?
Total Sweetie Pants
Ella Lopez is Ella-ing pretty hard this week. Not only is our boundary-blind forensics expert hugging randomly, flirting openly (watch out Amenadiel), recreating gruesome death scenes in theatrical detail, and arranging a touching funeral for a squished squirrel, she also finds the time to fan girl — hard — over the latest addition to the precinct, one Lieutenant Marcus Pierce, a rocktar among his colleagues, author of The Red Tape Behind the Yellow Tape and a “total sweetie pants” to boot.
However this seems to be one occasion where Ella’s enthusiasm for life (or is it her enthusiasm for Marcus Pierce’s good looks?) may have clouded her vision. Just a teeny bit.
Welling’s Pierce seems to bring out a nervous desire to please in almost everyone, and we’re stoked to see where this character will go in future episodes this season.
