14. Amenadiel will examine his relationship with God
Season 4 saw Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) struggle with the idea of becoming a parent along with being a parent of a young African-American kid. He faced his first real encounters with racism during a stop by cops that almost turned violent. It was enough for him to want to kidnap Charlie and raise him in the Silver City. While he didn’t go through with that plan, he still does have to figure out that whole parent thing.
The prediction for this comes to Amenadiel’s own relationship with God. Amenadiel has largely been loyal to his Father and his family. In later seasons, he tries to best to really abide by God’s plan, whatever that may be. Now Amenadiel is a Father himself, one who will have to figure out what that means for him. It will be interesting to see how Amenadiel reconciles his own relationship with God in the context of being a parent to Charlie.
As Lucifer is the title character of the series, we know intimately how he feels about God. Amenadiel, however, is both devout yet a little distant. Raising a human kid, even if he is half-angel, will require more hands on parenting. More importantly, becoming a parent largely has people think about their own upbringing and parents, so it will be nice to see Amenadiel reconcile that with his present.
13. Eve will be back for season 5
Eve was a truly lovely addition to the Lucifer‘s fourth season. You believed that she was ancient, yet also naive. In the hands of a lesser actress than Lavi, the character could become annoying. Yet Lavi nailed her role, bringing a vibrant warmth and aching vulnerability to the character.
After being defined by other men for her whole life (and afterlife), Eve’s journey was to let go of that need and figure out who she is by herself. No Lucifer, No Adam, just Eve.
While we end with her starting that journey at the end of season 4, there is a curiosity to see how she’s doing. We don’t know if Lavi will be back for all of season 5, but it would be nice if she appeared for like an episode of two? Just to check in and see how Eve is doing on this new chapter in her existence.
Sure, she may have accidentally let demons topside and betrayed Lucifer to Father Kinley (Graham MacTavish), but she did help fix those mistakes. We want Eve to be happy on her own terms, rather than a life that was set out for her by others. We think that Eve will come back for the final season in some way, whatever way that is.
