It's been awhile since I've felt like commenting on an episode, but I had to come here and .....
Pretty much say everything that has already been said!
I liked this episode. I felt it was the right balance of supernatural elements ( Lucifer, FINALLY getting to be Lucifer with the gang and also all the suggestions for killing Cain ) and procedural, without the procedural dragging down the storyline the way it has this season. I also agree that Pierce is now interesting, which was not something I expected at the beginning of the season!
For that reason alone I keep wanting to hope, for the actress's sake, that the writers have something decent up their sleeve for Chloe. When LG is doing scenes like the great girls night out episode and some of her more off the wall stuff I see flashes of a character who could be engaging. But the rest of the time, she is such a cardboard cut out of a plot device rather than a character I'm interested in.
Lucifer, Maze, Linda, Amenadiel, Dan, Charlotte, Ella, Pierce ... 7 characters (which is a lot) and I am interested whenever any one of them or combination of them is on the screen. Chloe? I use her screen time for bathroom breaks.
PS: I would also list Trixie among the 7 characters, but she isn't really a regular or a serious storyline of her own. But fear not, when she's on the screen I am still riveted!
