In Review: Lucifer – Pops

Lucifer and Chloe investigate the killing of a prominent restaurateur, and upon meeting his son, suspect him of being involved.

Synopsis: Lucifer and Chloe investigate the killing of a prominent restaurateur, and upon meeting his son, suspect him of being involved. Meanwhile, the return of Chloe’s mother turns her life …

Review: The series goes back to its default setting of procedural of the week, but brings Chloe’s mum into the mix and gives us a story in which dysfunctional families seem to be the topic of the week.

When the owner of a Mexican Restaurant is killed. Lucifer and Chloe are assigned the case, which turns into a murder that involves family and drugs.

Meanwhile Chloe’s mother the star of many an 80’s cheese ball science fiction flick has decided to pay her daughter a visit. This alone provides a little comedy as Lucifer invites a suspect to have dinner with Chloe and her mum and other members of the family, which leads to the predictable family in fighting and then some.

Maze has started to see Dr. Linda in hopes that she can help her with some issues, but finds trying to sleep with her isn’t an effective game plan. Later in the episode Maze makes friends with Chloe’s 8 – year old daughter in one of the episodes cuter moments.

The story was kind of meh and the sub-plot involving Dan and Malcolm seems to be petering out a little to the point where that isn’t even that interesting any-more.
