Post your thoughts on this week’s episode featuring the return of Lucifer. Click HERE for my full recap or keep reading for my quick thoughts.
Huh. I guess this episode sort of answered the question about Lucifer’s plan, but it just kind of raises more questions. He doesn’t have a plan? He’s just killing people and destroying God’s toys for fun? That’s more of an existential threat and I’m not sure it’s as compelling as a more clear goal like the Apocalypse or something. This episode was an amusing detour, but I really hope they get back to the British Men of Letters soon, because I think that story has a lot more potential for the season as a whole. I mean, what happened to Mr. Ketch?
This episode definitely had some fun stuff, like Sam’s unapologetic love for crappy music and Dean’s complete and utter hatred for L.A. But the big showdown with Lucifer was just a monologue followed by him leaving his vessel.
It looks like next week’s mid-season finale is also going to be Lucifer-centric, so I really hope they wrap up that whole storyline so the second half of season 12 can focus on more interesting issues than an angry Devil killing for fun.
