Synopsis: When a young superstar quarterback finds a dead girl in his swimming pool, he turns to Lucifer for help. Lucifer enlists Chloe to investigate the world of big money sports.
Review: This third episode doesn’t really bring to much new to the already established procedural formula of the series thus far.
We get to see Lucifer fail to mete out justice to some guy named Justin who has been impersonating and soiling his reputation, which was a little fun. In fact probably the most fun had in the story.
The central investigation is fairly predictable. Anyone who has watched enough procedurals will have pretty much figured out who the murderer was right away. If they didn’t they’d probably not be your hardcore viewers.
Detective Chloe has started to get a little more curious about Lucifer in that she is reading up on stuff such as magic and hypnosis, but not really getting very far with it.
Also a lot of fun was Lucifer’s weekly visit to his therapist, the same therapist that he has been having sex with since the opening episode. These scenes where he is in therapy make for some of the fun one liners that are delivered beautifully by Tom Ellis.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to see any D.B. Woodside this week as the angel Amenadiel, which was missed. I’d really like to see more of this character and explore the mythology a little more in the weeks to come. If we continue to have procedural easy to solve crime of the week. I’m probably going to stop watching.
This show just makes me miss ‘Constantine’ more and more.
