This week our favorite, charming devil finally loses his cool and it all comes down to the contents of a certain container that goes missing at the top of the hour. What an eventful episode. Gotta say that it was amazing. Those lyrics are enlightening:. Martin does by the end of the episode. During that awesome cold open, we also see a robbery in progress and a security guard being murdered at some warehouse. It was intercut with a brand new location. Luci passes on the foursome and goes to work quite happily. Back at Lux, Maze reveals that the container stolen from the warehouse belonged to Lucifer.

Favorite Son is the sixth episode of the first season of Lucifer. It aired on February 29, Lucifer bails on Chloe when he becomes bored with her investigation into a ruthless biker gang murder. However, when he discovers something was stolen during the crime that was very personal to him, he demands that Chloe let him rejoin the case. Chloe demands Trixie to come clean - with eating chocolate cake. Dan thinks it's no big deal and convinces Trixie to admit it, and she says Lucifer said it was okay. Dan is not impressed that Lucifer is having an influence over Trixie. Lucifer rejects a threesome with the Brittanys to go to "work", to Maze's surprise. Lucifer has his first case as an official consultant for the police. Little did he know this case would become more personal than he anticipated.
He has become a man undone, an angel still in his dark, guarded heart of hearts, out of place among mortals and condemned to a cage of regret. The catalyst for this important change is the theft of something very near and dear to Lucifer, a gift from his heavenly Father. The item in question is wisely teased throughout the episode until its true nature is finally revealed at the end of the hour. But more on that in just a bit. Yes, Lucifer is finally coming into his own; by acknowledging an important loss, he reclaims his identity. Gravitas goes a long way toward generating genuine sympathy for the Devil. It also goes a long way toward drawing the other characters out of their shells as they feel compelled to help Lucifer — and not just because the plot compels them to do so. And in doing so, the writers have given Tom Ellis something to sink his teeth into; his performance in this episode is the best of the season so far. No, this time, his anger is directed at a higher authority, at the one responsible for turning his favorite son into a torturer of sinners. Ad — content continues below.
Plus, it has finally become clear how all the pieces fit together, even if it took what seemed like forever to get to this point. When the case of the week takes a backseat to the main story, Lucifer is, by far, a better show. And, now that we have the ultimate case of cases, I'm hoping the boring ones, like the one that pushed Lucifer away this hour, stay in the backseat. Sure, the security officer murder was important to the overall story, but it wasn't open and shut like all the others.
