This episode sees to the end of the so-called “Sinnerman.” The team runs on a wild goose chase to track down the Sinnerman’s latest victim, who turns out to be an almost accomplice who actually kidnapped herself. Cutting to the interesting part, Lucifer takes the Sinnerman captive to one of his many LA properties, intent on getting answers out of the guy. The Sinnerman apparently has knowledge of Lucifer and God, and all of that heavenly stuff, so it would only make sense that the Sinnerman coming around in the beginning of the season would be directly related to Lucifer getting both his white angel wings and losing his devil face. Lucifer is quite defiant in saying that he is the only one who can decide who he is. Maze, his favorite sidekick when it comes to this stuff, tells him that angels can’t kill humans after Lucifer asks for the knife to give the final blow. He is happy to hear this because, if he kills this human, perhaps he will get his devil face back and the angel wings will go away! Unfortunately, this wasn’t meant to happen because then Pierce and Chloe come busting into the property with Pierce filling the Sinnerman with holes. Now Luci will never get his answers, but it would seem like he doesn’t have to worry about them anymore. He seems to have a short attention span when it comes to most things, at least that’s what the show likes to allude to. By the end of the episode, Lucifer has his own questions for Pierce… After asking him questions at the empty LUX, Lucifer decides to take things into his own hands by stabbing Pierce. Lucifer was under the impression that Pierce was another immortal, based on photo evidence, and is not mistaken with his assumptions. Pierce gets back up and gives us his real name. He introduces himself as the world’s first murderer, Cain, of biblical canon. What a way to end an episode.
Once more we find Lucifer ruminating on if he is good or bad, worth it or not. On the one hand, he can’t stand someone like the Sinnerman playing puppeteer of Lucifer’s life, but on the other hand, he can’t doubt how God made him. The last episode showed him saying that he was born with his powers and they served him well. This time, he doesn’t like when someone calls him out for being the devil. The man does not make sense. He doesn’t let society define him, yet he hates how society has defined him. What’s his issue? He is at a crossroads now, in figuring out who he really is. Throw Cain in there and now what? Is this all God’s plan? To trick Lucifer? Tune in next time for more.
