TV Review: Lucifer S2E13 A Good Day to Die
Lucifer must find the antidote to the Professor’s poison, so he travels to hell to find the Professor’s soul. While he’s there, he is forced to confront his guilt about Uriel’s death. Mom heads to hell to get Lucifer back, but Lucifer still feels betrayed by his parents because of something he discovers.
Lucifer wraps up before its winter break in the second half of the two-part story which began in the previous episode.
Chloe is having issues due to the poison sending her to the hospital and without the antidote, she’ll die. The problem is, the only person who knows the formula for the antidote is dead. What’s Lucifer to do? Head to Hell to get the information!
The episode is a fascinating one as it brings everyone together to save Chloe working in a way we haven’t really seen, and it’s twisted how it goes down. Humorous, but twisted. The decisions everyone makes and how they all work together in their various roles is really entertaining.
This is an interesting episode in that it really sets up what the rest of the season will be like and also gives us a glimpse of exactly what Hell is like. But, what really strikes me is the examination of Lucifer and his mother… and their guilt. Once again, the show adds depth to its characters and moves along the meta-story. There’s been a fantastic balance of that this season and this episode is no exception.
Where do things go from here? Well, that’s a big question and we’re not quite sure as the episode leaves a big question mark at the end. All I know, no matter what it is, it’ll be impressive as the rest of this season has been any indication.
