This was a much stronger episode than last few times. The case of the week was relatively interesting, primarily because of Pierce's connection to it.

Some of the characterization felt a bit off to me. I thought Linda's advice not to tell Charlotte the truth was really bad. I would have thought Lucifer would have accepted Chloe's offer for drinks, but I guess he's trying to be the good guy.

I know it's stupid, but I don't want to see Pierce break Chloe's heart or toy with her emotions. Yes, I realize he believes she's the key to breaking the curse, but I thought he had some actual feelings for her beyond her usefulness.

Poor Trixie! We all know there has got to be a Maze grovelling for forgiveness scene in the future, right?

When the 1950s scene started, I was worried the whole episode was going to be in flashback -- one of those 'all the regulars play different roles in the past' stunt episodes. Not that I haven't enjoyed that trick in other shows, just that there's not enough time left in the season for non-forward motion.

Agreed. And I'm confused as to what he thinks she can do to break the curse.

I really thought upsetting Trixie would be the key to Maze realizing she's hurting people who don't deserve it, but it seems not for now.

As for Linda, I can understand. It would be easier if she said "stay away FOR NOW." Meaning let me help her until she's more stable and THEN we can deal with this. Introducing that kind of trauma when she just got Charlotte to trust her would probably be a bad idea.

I have to say I am glad that Pierce doesn't seem to have feelings for Chloe because I really don't think the show should have literally every man in love with her (except Amenadiel I guess)

I think Linda was in the right about Charlotte not being ready yet for the full truth and I think Amenadiel is bumbling around in things he doesn't fully understand because of his unresolved issues with his mother and his belief that his father is "testing him". Do we have any hint that he is right about that?
