TV Review: Lucifer S2E18 The Good, the Bad and the Crispy
After Charlotte accidentally charbroils a man to death in self-defense, Lucifer tries to hide it from Chloe; Maze goes looking for Charlotte and Amenadiel; Lucifer tries to find a permanent solution for the ticking time bomb he calls Mom.
Lucifer wraps up its shortened second season with an episode that excellently touches upon all of its plot threads really well and in a way that feels satisfying and at the same time ends things in a way that feels like it’ll be an interesting third season in quite a few ways.
I have no idea where to begin but the plot with heading back to Heaven, his mother, his mother being a lawyer, his mother burning someone, the sword, there’s just a hell of a lot packed in and it flows effortlessly. And, how things are resolved both makes sense and also leaves things open in a way for it all to come back in an epic way.
And what’s impressive is that it does all of that and still moves so many characters’ forward in each their own way. Maze and Amenadiel both stand out as these last couple of episodes feels like they have focused on the two of them and really moved them ahead in so many ways. Maze especially has advanced from just being the muscle of the team and instead she gets some depth.
Then there’s that ending… holy crap does that open up some questions and has me baffled as to where it’s going. While it feels similar to the beginning of this year, I’d imagine that’ll be addressed. Overall, a solid ending for the season that has me even more excited to see what happens next.
Overall Rating: 7.65
