The little girl who plays Trixie is amazing. I mean, she always has been, but she nailed every line in this episode.

The entire Lucifer cast is just so good. Even Chloe is better this season. Not that she was bad exactly, more that she has the thankless task of being the normal/sane character while everyone else gets to do the wacky most of the time, but I feel like they improved on it this year with the increased Chloe/Maze scenes and with her being more 'agnostic' on the subject of Lucifer's devil-ness.

"The entire Lucifer cast is just so good."

Yeah, last week after watching the show I remarked, once again, that this show is so much better than it has any right to be. I ought to hate it, it's so formulaic. It's just the kind of thing I really hate. But I can't help myself, I love this show. And one huge reason is the casting. I think the casting director deserves several Emmys. The only duds are Chloe and Dan, and that's as much the fault of the writing as the acting. But everyone else (okay, Amenadiel is kind meh) is amazing and bring so much more to the character than what's on the page. The first person I really noticed was Rachael Harris, who plays Linda. But it's really all of the supporting cast ... and Tom Ellis, of course.

And next week, Timothy Omundson! (I read the casting spoiler months ago, so excited it's finally here.)

Lucifer's horror was palpable when he proved that it was not his anger, but his pain, that ignited the sword.

Maze being blatantly obvious with bait is hilarious.

Oh good, Lucifer finally learned to hide things at home.

So...barely anything about the wife from last episode?!
