When the man who had the final piece of the Flaming Sword is murdered and the piece goes missing, Mom joins Chloe and Lucifer on the case to track down the killer. But when Lucifer gets sidelined, Maze recruits him to help save Dr. Linda’s endangered career and confronts him about the secrets he’s been keeping.
Lucifer is an interesting one in that the episode focuses on Lucifer’s actions in the last episode that have gotten Dr. Linda in trouble and puts her ability to practice at risk.
But, what I think is the most surprising thing about it all is this is a huge episode for Maze. Out of all of the characters, she’s the one who has grown the most in the series and we’ve seen that with her being a roommate, but this episode is where she stands up and stands out because of it. Part of that is because she goes from Lucifer’s enforcer to Linda’s protector in a way and we get the real sense that she enjoys being on Earth and wants to stay. It’s a massive change from the first season and been subtlely down over the seasons in a way that it doesn’t become apparent until here.
The rest of the episode revolves around trying to get the rest of the sword and that ties into the murder. It’s decent but not quite as entertaining as the past. The mystery around Lucifer’s mother is slightly revealed giving us a better idea as to what she’s hiding, but as a whole, this aspect is one of the weaker episodes.
This episode is the Maze show and she stands out from everyone in so many ways. An otherwise meh episode is made solid by her and she steals the show.
