TV Review: Lucifer S2E12 Love Handles
Lucifer and Chloe investigate a mysterious masked killer who is poisoning college students. They also try to make sense of their new relationship, after a long-awaited kiss. Meanwhile, Charlotte visits Linda for advice on a touchy subject.
Lucifer is an interesting episode in that it focuses on Lucifer and Chloe’s relationship explored in a murder mystery that’s a bit like Saw in a way. Individuals are being tested in impossible choices like letting someone die unless they cut off their hand.
The episode is fun in that it really focuses on Chloe and Lucifer and their budding relationship. But, the episode plays a lot with that faking out the viewers with teases and it’s a hell of a lot of fun.
There’s some great humor as usual and the episode does a fantastic job of deepening the story between Lucifer and Chloe and revealing even more than we knew before. It’s interesting in how it plays out and builds on the world building in many ways. So many episodes in it’s kind of amazing how it plays out, works, and fits so well. Even with an unknown as to whether there’d be a second season it’s clear the creators have planned really well.
Another fantastic episode that’s more focused on the meta story than the murder of the week, but even that is entertaining too.
