Lucifer, the hit Netflix original series, will close with its fifth season next year, and we have a list of predictions that will (hopefully) make it the most memorable yet.

Lucifer season 5 has started filming, and 16 new episodes are on the way in the final season of the hit Netflix original series.

If you’re a fan, you probably already know this. The Lucifer Writers Twitter keeps on having us guess the latest episode titles. Actors are posting their behind-the-scenes pictures. Fans of the series, meanwhile, are steeling themselves for the end.

Of course, there are just a plethora of questions and theories for the show’s final 16-episode run. If there is one thing that everyone likes to do, it’s masking the sadness with frantic theorizing and discourse. It’s the fandom way.

Lucifer has set up some tantalizing questions for us to mull over in the interim.

How will Lucifer (Tom Ellis) get out of Hell? What about Deckerstar? Will we meet more of the angelic brethren? Or they going to come after little baby Charlie? What about God and Lucifer’s fractured relationship? Are Dan (Kevin Alejandro) or Ella (Aimee Garcia) going to be fully let into the Celestial Insiders club?

Needless to say, it’s a lot to worry about if you’re a fan of the show. The fourth season just swept some of the clunky bits from season 3 under the rug and brought a compelling story. It was so good that we’re just hoping season 5 retains that while also giving us more. It’s a tricky balance, but we think Lucifer is up for the challenge.

With that in mind, let’s share some of our predictions for Lucifer‘s final season.

15. Maze will get a happy ending

One of the most compelling stories in Lucifer is that of Mazikeen (Lesley Ann Brandt), Lucifer’s right-hand demon and (former) bodyguard. During her time on Earth, Maze has undergone her own transformation, showing that demons can love and care for others outside of themselves.

While it scared her in season 3 to the point where she tried to burn every bridge and force Lucifer back to Hell, Maze worked in season 4 to repair her relationships and even fell in love with Eve (Inbar Lavi).

While the relationship between Maze and Eve didn’t work out, it did show that Maze can have happiness. That happiness is just not going to come from Hell; she’s changed too much for it.

Whether this new happy ending comes from her friendships with the others notably Linda (Rachael Harris) and Trixie (Scarlett Estevez), a romantic relationship, or just finding love in being herself. In Maze’s own words, “self-worth comes from within,” but it’s taken a long time to see her really grasp that concept.

Ultimately, we’re predicting that while Maze doesn’t return to Hell, and she’ll find her own power and happiness on Earth whatever form that’ll take. We’re sure it will be uniquely Maze.
