Lucifer season 4 was finally released last week and it did not disappoint. Here are some thoughts on the new season. Spoilers ahead!

Hey Lucifans! It’s been about a week since Lucifer season 4 came out, and I’m still trying to process how absolutely awesome this season is.

I had high hopes with Netflix being the show’s new home, and I wasn’t disappointed. The new format and less episode count made the show and story even better. I didn’t feel like I was watching a different show, and that is the smartest decision the writers made. With an already dedicated fan base, you don’t want to change things too much. The season almost (more on this later) hit on all I wanted to see in season 4, and exceeded my expectations. Overall, this is my favorite season!


Let’s start with Lucifer and Chloe. Obviously, we need to talk about them first. Although we didn’t really get to see them in a relationship this season as we’d all hoped, there was A LOT of progress. There were so many good Deckerstar moments this season. Their dynamic has always been great, but I especially loved their scenes this season since Chloe finally knows the truth.

So much happened in one, 10-episode season:

  • Chloe not accepting Lucifer’s devil face and working to get him back to Hell
  • Learning that she makes him vulnerable and remembering that she knows who he is versus the stories she was reading about in her research.
  • His heartbroken face when he found out Chloe almost sent him back to Hell and her telling him how scared she is and doesn’t know if she can accept that he’s the devil.
  • Helping him accept his devil body (I don’t even know what to call it, it’s definitely not just a face anymore).
  • Saying they love each other (that ending scene was so bittersweet. Excuse me as I continue to cry).

Yeah, that all happened in one season. Can you believe it? It’s everything we’ve wanted since season 1 and even though it was hard to wait so long, it was worth it.

The paranoid priest

The storyline with Chloe helping the priest was… interesting. I’m glad they didn’t stretch that out too long. When they hinted at it at the end of the first episode I was really nervous this would go on most of the season, but thankfully that wasn’t the case.

In his defense, Father Kinley isn’t paranoid. Lucifer is actually the devil. It was so refreshing to see a new conflict for Lucifer that wasn’t about his father, and Graham McTavish really captured the role. I really enjoyed this storyline with an overly obsessed priest and how it came full circle at the end (even though I didn’t want Lucifer to leave).

Between struggling with Chloe’s lack of acceptance and Father Kinley’s agenda, Lucifer was too busy to bring up his father more than like twice, so thank you, writers!

Lucifer’s character development and the first lady (of mankind)

Like a new conflict, I also wanted to see some character development for Lucifer. I mean, what’s more than him FINALLY accepting who he is and getting to the point Linda has been trying to get him to since season 1?

He admitted that he hates himself, and that was an amazing breakthrough that leads to more pain for him but then a wonderful payoff with Chloe helping him accept he’s both the devil and an angel. This is one of my favorite scenes, and it featured brilliant performances. I’m so happy and proud of Lucifer!

I was going into the season disliking Eve because I knew she would play some part in getting between Lucifer and Chloe, but she is such a likable character! I love her sweet, bubbly personality (mixed in with some sin), and I felt so bad for her by the end of the season. I wasn’t too crazy on her and Lucifer being together, even if they were each other’s rebounds, but I was able to live with it because I liked Eve so much.

If there’s a season 5 and Eve is a part of it, there’s a lot of character growth for her to go through. She finally came to the realization that she’s been trying to be the person she thought Adam and Lucifer wanted her to be instead of being her true self.

Linda, Amenadiel and Maze

Ok, was anyone else expecting Linda and Amenadiel to have a baby? I sure did not see that coming. It was such an unexpected twist and it’ll be exciting to see what a half human, half angel child will be like since it’s the first of its kind.

It’s a good thing Amenadiel likes humans now because when he almost took little Charlie (I love this tribute to Charlotte) to the Silver City I was really nervous. Amenadiel trying to interact with humans was one of the funniest sequences on the show! But, the writers also added a realistic scenario of police brutality, which is important to remember even in a fictional show.

Maze’s storyline was better this year. I loved the focus on all the different friendships we have on the show this season, especially Linda and Maze’s. I’m all here for friends supporting friends.

But, I was expecting more for Maze’s love life. I think she needed a more fleshed out love-storyline. I don’t know, it seemed like she started to like Eve out of nowhere after hanging out with her for a night, and then didn’t get anything in return (not that I blame Eve). I think Maze deserved a better love-storyline this season.

Other thoughts on the season

Poor Dan

We really saw him go through his grief this season. Even though some of his actions like lying to Ella were giving me season 1 Dan vibes, it wasn’t out of character. What’s important is he took the hardest step and went to speak with Linda.

Dan and Ella

Nope, just no. I’ve always seen them as good friends and can’t see them in a relationship. As they said, hopefully, it was a one-time thing.

Yay, Maze and Trixie made up!

It was a quick, but heartwarming scene. And I laughed a bit when Maze apologized to Chloe and told her she’d never hurt her. That’s basically what she was doing in season 3, but everyone got over it so maybe I should too.

What did you think of Lucifer season 4? Hopefully, Netflix renews the series for season 5 because there’s still so much story to tell.
