In Review: Lucifer – Favorite Son

After abandoning Chloe during a murder investigation into a ruthless biker gang, Lucifer demands to rejoin the case after he discovers something very personal was stolen from him.

Synopsis: After abandoning Chloe during a murder investigation into a ruthless biker gang, Lucifer demands to rejoin the case after he discovers something very personal was stolen from him.

Review: At long last this series is beginning to delve into the mythology a little more and most importantly. Something actually happened other than the usual procedural of the week.

Tom Ellis gets to finally flex some muscles and show the darker more resentful and angry side to Lucifer as opposed to the smarmy charming side that frankly was starting to get boring.

I love the fact that Amenadiel has been manipulating Lucifer’s therapist.

Also this weeks case takes on a bigger storyline given that something very valuable and personal to Lucifer has been stolen, which kind of opens this series up a little bit.

Stand out moment is Lucifer’s complete and utter meltdown at the close of the episode. Hopefully this makes him become a bit less smarmy and more of a bad ass uncaring nasty piece of work in the weeks to come, but given that its on network TV. I doubt it will get anywhere near the viciousness of the Lucifer in the comics. But this is definitely a step in the right direction.
