In Review: Lucifer – A Priest Walks Into A Bar

While Malcolm keeps an eye on Dan, Lucifer is visited by a priest who seeks his help when he suspects an underground drug operation is running out of a neighbourhood youth centre.

Synopsis: While Malcolm keeps an eye on Dan, Lucifer is visited by a priest who seeks his help when he suspects an underground drug operation is running out of a neighbourhood youth centre.

Review: Carrying things forward from last week Malcolm continues to keep tabs on Dan while simultaneously blackmailing him in exchange for his silence over his shooting. But the plot twists when we learn that Malcolm is a mere pawn in Amenadiel continued attempts to get Lucifer to go back to hell.

Meanwhile Lucifer is visited by Father Frank Lawrence (Colman Domingo) who asks for help in investigating a drugs ring, which involves a teenager that he has an interest in trying to help. 

Obviously Lucifer is amused by the irony of the situation and proceeds to investigate with the help of Chloe.

As the investigation pushed forward and Franks life is threatened Lucifer shelters him at his night club and an unlikely friendship forms between the two.

While much like in weeks prior this was kind of dependent on the procedural aspect. I liked the way that it became a little more personal for Lucifer and his meltdown and angry words to God at the end could hopefully be the foreshadowing of more of the darker and more vengeful Lucifer that we saw in the two part episode concerning his wings.

Colman Domingo is pretty strong in his role as the priest and the piano scene of him playing rock n roll with Lucifer was worth the price of admission.
