Rotten Tomatoes rating: 83%
At the end of Season 4, which introduced the character of Eve as Lucifer’s first love and also Adam’s second wife after Lillith, Dr Linda (Rachel Harris) and Amenadial (DB Woodside) had a baby, and The Detective (Lauren German as Chloe Decker) professed her love for the Lord of the Underworld just before he returned down below to keep the demons in check.
Season 5 saw Lucifer’s evil twin, Michael, entering the picture, and his first act of mischief is to seduce The Detective. The next is to implode her and Lucifer’s relationship before it’s really begun. Lucifer, of course, returns to Earth, where he ends up being manipulated by Maze (played by SA-born Lesley-Ann Brandt), who is seeking answers to her questions about her mother, Lillith, and is willing to employ whichever devious devices will get her what she needs.
In S6, the final instalment, Lucifer meets a celestial being he had no idea existed, and who is hell-bent on destroying him. While he investigates her background, we journey through time to his past dalliances, and this story arc forms the bulk of the season, which is pleasingly interspersed with some musical numbers, an entire episode in classic-cartoon form, and a smattering of Afrikaans (thank you, Lesley-Ann!). Unlike some previous seasons, Season 6 ends with a bang, and on a satisfying note that fans will appreciate.
Ready Steady Cut says: “There’ll be laughter, there’ll be drama, and above all, there are moments that viewers will have been waiting for. But most importantly, when the show reaches its closing moments, not only will you reflect back and think, god, what a season, you’ll also think, god, what a show.”
