  1. I thought that too, but the On Demand menu shows two more episodes are coming.
  2. IIRC, he just showed her some memories he selected to help him talk her out of her funk. The first time he did it, he just showed her a quick snippet to "inoculate" her to the side effects of the process (losing her hair and teeth).
  3. It's more a nod to Conan Doyle, I think -- Reichenbach Falls was a waterfall where his Holmes had his final confrontation with Professor Moriarty...
  4. The extra episode order might just be because the showrunners said they had enough material to go that long in bringing the series to the conclusion they envisioned. Someone else here had posted an article with comments by exec producer Ildy Modrovich (sp?) to the effect that she'd really been hoping to get a sixth season to wrap the show up with; this might be the compromise they worked out with Netflix.
  5. I was with everyone else on this until I started a rewatch of the series from the beginning. Now I think Chloe at this point (S4E2) has no reason to trust what Amenadiel says at all -- her longest real interaction with him to date was in the early second season when he tried to convince her that Lucifer was using movie FX to make it appear he'd withstood getting shot, which she now knows was bullshit. Sure, now she knows Amenadiel's a celestial … but for all she knows, he could be another fallen rebel on the outs with the devil, or heaven-sent but simply antagonistic toward his brother. Lucifer certainly has never made it a secret to her that he and Amenadiel are frequently at odds. And she pretty quickly made it way too awkward to try having a heart-to-heart with Maze on the subject of devils and demons.
  6. He's just mortal in the sense of being vulnerable to injury or death when she's around; he's never gotten weaker or lost his wings from being near her. (His Season 3 inability to show his devil face was there regardless of whether or not she was around, and was probably all in his head, anyway.)
  7. Ordinarily I agree, but for just this once, I thought using the imaginary dance sequences to show Lucifer's on-top-of-the-world mood swing was damn near genius. It'd get old real fast if they repeated it, though.
  8. Maybe. In Season 1, after she and Dan had separated, she was living in a house her mother owned. But that wasn't a permanent solution, so eventually she went looking for an apartment she could afford, but no luck until, after a drunken night out with Maze and Linda, she discovered the next day that she and Maze had agreed to go in on an apartment together. AFAICT, that's where Chloe and Trixie still live.
  9. She'd have taken it off when Linda and Charlie were discharged. Those are only for keeping someone from abducting babies from the maternity ward, which would be the hospital's responsibility to prevent.
  10. So far, Lucifer seems to be doing well for Netflix: This article has it as No. 2 in its list (based on Parrot Analytics data) of most in-demand streaming series. Bodes well for a Season 5, I think/hope.
  11. Yeah, but Amenadiel still had angelic DNA. (Remember he was once concerned that if Chloe had Lucifer's blood tested, divine elements of his nature would show up in the test.) So Charlie is half-angel -- or, in some religious traditions, one of the nephilim. Some of those sources assert that the children of angels and humans were giants, others that they're just superhuman, but either way it doesn't seem necessary that they have wings. Richard Kadrey's series of "Sandman Slim" novels includes a character who's one of the nephilim and doesn't even know it until well into adulthood. (Note: the "Sandman" part of that series' name has nothing to do with Neil Gaiman's own "Sandman," although Kadrey's Lucifer character does have a few similarities to the one we've been watching here.)
  12. That was actually one of two "extra" episodes Fox ordered last season. The extras are weird because of the way they had to be handled. For some reason, for two seasons in a row, the network ordered these additional episodes when it was too late to integrate them into the season's arc, meaning the showrunners had to give them more standalone plot lines -- then, the first time (during season 2), Fox compounded the confusion by deciding the episodes would air during the following season, making them even more disconnected from the story's flow. Then again during season 3, the episodes "Boo Normal" and "Once Upon a Time" were done with the idea that Fox would slip them into the next season -- but then the network canceled Lucifer instead, and aired those two after the real season 3 ender ("Devil of My Word") to burn them off. THEN came the pickup by Netflix, for a tighter 10-episode season 4. If the show had stayed on Fox, with a 20-or-so-episode season, the showrunners would've had time to adjust the overall plotline around what happens in "Boo Normal" (the episode with "Rayray" aka the Angel Azrael), but with 10 episodes, it was probably best for them to just wave away the events of "Boo Normal" -- especially since the other thing in that episode that fits badly with the show's timeline is that Dan's post-Charlotte bitterness toward Lucifer isn't there.
  13. Especially since it was a murder committed by someone she'd started out worshipping (though God knows why).
  14. I was wondering that too. Not only did he have the initial panic attack when the first new person showed up, but he didn't do much of anything helpful or constructive after that. Even the Eleanor/Chidi montage movie ultimately just made them both sadder.
