So the last scene of this episode was my favorite of the season.
I was slightly uncomfortable all season, in pretty much every episode, with how Chloe was reacting to the truth, not only in actively betraying Lucifer for a hot minute, but then also trying to “change” him (like making him go to charity work, which is just kind of offensive anyway because even going back to season 1, she knows that his heart is moved to give money to charity anonymously when he sees a need).
And on top of all that, she had always, in every season, outright denied his darker side instead of acknowledging that it is something that he deals with and instead of asking him to talk about it (which is why Eve really was a good rebound fling for Lucifer because I think he did need some baseline validation just to keep himself sane, even if he ultimately reached the important growth point that he doesn’t quite want to be that person anymore).
Even as recently as in the last episode, Chloe had a little bit of a hard time facing Lucifer in his full devil form, kind of fighting looking away as she talked to him, up until she found the strength to finish her speech about forgiveness.
But in this episode, Chloe really finally embraced all of Lucifer, and acknowledged with an actual smile his awesome power. (After all her squirreliness this season, though, I could have done without her trying to keep Lucifer away from the case, subjecting us to the delayed revelation that she was only doing that to protect him. I felt she kind of lost obfuscation privileges for the season after all the crap she pulled earlier on.) Anyway, in that last scene, her apology over how she had reacted to him all season felt earned and sincere, and I was moved that she could say rawly and honestly that she loved Lucifer. Tom Ellis’s reaction to the declaration was top notch, too—what a face journey—ecstacy perfectly mixed with sorrow and surprise and love.
