As soon as it turns into clear that the supposed goal on this case is definitely Chloe’s pre-Dan ex, DJ Karnal, aka Jed Moore, the plot thickens, and Lucifer reverts to behaviors that threaten to derail the connection he labored so laborious to recuperate. From a story standpoint, nonetheless, it’s a bit odd that the most popular DJ on the town doesn’t acknowledge the proprietor of the most popular membership on the town, however that nitpick is definitely put aside. As quickly as Lucifer sees Chloe and Jed reminisce, it’s sport on for the prince of darkness, although we fear he’ll muck issues up so quickly after getting again on observe.
Jason Bruening (Good Conduct) settles into his position because the partaking DJ turned social activist completely, and the mixture of excellent appears to be like together with his celeb standing provides Lucifer a run for his cash from the beginning. We don’t typically see Lucifer on the defensive, however the collection continues to successfully use relationships to look at the bigger themes of belief, loyalty, and honesty. Although the romantic aspect of their relationship is new, their historical past collectively on the LAPD must be sufficient to hold the pair by the tough patches if each acknowledge how they really feel. And whereas the ultimate scene actually signifies they’ve weathered this primary relationship storm, we all know a extra acquainted ex-partner faces a watershed second.
After all, there’s no getting round the truth that Dan stands at a crossroads after witnessing Lucifer’s satan face, and now we have to query whether or not Lucifer permits this reveal deliberately. The night has performed out splendidly as the ladies head to Lux searching for the killer, and the lads keep house and take a look at, for essentially the most half unsuccessfully, to calm child Charlie. However it’s Lucifer’s name to Dan asking him to return to Amenadiel and Linda’s place that poses the issue.
As soon as the brothers study that Lucifer’s satan face produces a chilled impact on the kid, there’s actually no want for Dan to return except Lucifer merely desires to mess together with his head, and if that’s the case, now we have to marvel why. On the floor, Dan and Lucifer appear to be getting alongside in addition to they ever have, and whereas it’s in all probability too quickly to name them buddies, they regularly discover extra widespread floor between them. Does Lucifer really feel it’s time to convey Dan into the celestial household together with Linda and Chloe, or is one thing extra sinister afoot right here? Will Dan confront Lucifer and the others about what he’s seen, or will the sight of the Satan ship him right into a downward spiral as he remembers despicable issues he’s executed in his previous and see this as foreshadowing?
It appears unlikely that Lucifer feels threatened by Dan relating to Chloe, however the look of Jed does seem to have shaken him a bit. However, it’s now as much as Dan to make the subsequent transfer, and it will likely be attention-grabbing to see whether or not he confronts Lucifer or seeks Chloe’s recommendation. Alternatively, he has to know that what he thinks he noticed doesn’t make sense and worry that his declare will paint him as an individual in critical want of psychiatric assist which then factors to Physician Linda as a possible confidant. Regardless, it’s a turning level, and although we’ve been down this street earlier than, right here, it feels very totally different.
