Lucifer: BlueBallz
August 23, 2020 12:38 PM - Season 5, Episode 6 - Subscribe

After a popular DJ is electrocuted on stage, Chloe searches for the killer while Lucifer tries to keep his jealousy over an ex-flame in check.

*Murder victim of the week is Matt Pexa, aka DJ BlueBallz, though it turns out that he was not the intended victim. The killer (Rob) was trying to murder DJ Karnal, Chloe's ex-boyfriend Jed, for sleeping with the killer's wife (Karen, the Karnel fan).

*Maze, in her attempt to avoid ending up alone like Lillith ended, spends most of the episode trying to be like Ella, until she realizes that Ella isn't successful at finding love either. Ella decides to break her I-only-deserve-losers streak by giving new reporter Pete her number.

*Baby Charlie will not stop crying - Amenadiel tries to get help from Dan (including a swaddling lesson demonstrated with a napkin on a wine-opener), and then Lucifer and even Jed, while Linda ditches to the Lux for Chloe's catch-the-killer sting/party for a 'Girls Night 2' after a particularly bone-headed comment from Amenadiel, eventually finding that Lucifer's devil-face pacifies the baby. But unbeknownst to the brothers, Dan sees the devil-face after Michael draws him back towards the house with a pretending-to-be-Lucifer phone call, and Dan flees in horror.

*Lucifer lets himself get manipulated by Jed into spending most of the episode in relationship self-sabotage, but in the end he and Chloe have some honest relationship talk, and then finally end up in bed with clothing coming off.

Linda to Chloe: Seriously, sex with Lucifer is the last thing you should be worried about. What you should be worried about is that he's unfathomably narcissistic, utterly terrified of intimacy, and sabotages everything good that ever happens to him. So essentially, he's the oldest, most immature person in the world. Nay, "universe."

After the question in the 1940s episode thread about whether Trixie knows/believes the truth about Lucifer, I'd been wondering if the show was ever going to let Dan in on it or whether he was going to remain on the outside of the celestial plots for the entire run of the show, so, I'm very happy that he's now found out, in maybe the worst possible way. This should be fun (in a sadistic 'mwah-ha-ha' way).

Oh, forgot to say - I really liked Lucifer's brown suit. I feel like the suits so far this season haven't really been as eye-catching as previously, and while I generally prefer the flashier jewel-tone ensembles, that brown one was beautiful.

Something happened this episode that caused me to start cackling. There is a bit of lazy storytelling that I saw a mile away and I may discuss after it pays off in a later episode. Otherwise the movement on the Lucifer/Chloe relationship is playing out nicely. That Charlie is comforted by the Devil-face just makes too much damn sense. Uncle Lucy just makes the funniest faces.

Side note: This episode was directed by Richard Speight Jr. who played Gabriel in another show where Michael is a dick.

Another fan of that brown suit here. It was such a nice change of palette for Lucifer, for the show and for men's fashion in general.

Now I'm intrigued, dice I don't think I saw it.

Mixed feelings about the Dan thing. Glad he finally knows, but now it's a question of how much damage will he do before everyone calms him down
