12. Ella annd Dan will join the Celestial Insider Club
It took three seasons for Chloe (Lauren German) to actually get real proof that Lucifer is actually the Devil and not delusional.
Meanwhile, Ella and Dan are still “in the dark” after season 4. How is Lucifer’s absence going to be explained to them?
At this point, with Lucifer stuck in Hell, it just is more frustrating than anything for Ella and Dan to be in on the club. Granted, with Ella struggling with her faith and Dan very nearly putting a hit out on Lucifer, it’s a difficult subject to broach.
In season 5, it’s time for Dan and Ella to be let in on the Club. If only to provide Chloe with the support she’s going to need with her almost lover currently ruling Hell to protect them all. While Lucifer tends to let the good deeds he does for friends and loved ones to go under the radar, they still deserve to know the truth as those friends. Even if Lucifer and Dan hit a rough patch in the friendship department.
Plus, it will open up a lot of interesting story opportunities. Dan struggles with his less than stellar life choices in seasons 1 and 4 while Ella tries to piece together what her faith means with the confirmed existence of The Big Guy.
11. Therapy for all
One of the best parts of the series, in the terms of Lucifer’s story, is the positive impact that therapy can have on a person. Even if he always doesn’t understand Linda’s advice, Lucifer has undergone a transformative maturation during his time in therapy.
While it’s difficult to undo a millennia of self-loathing and daddy issues, he does make strides over the series. Would Lucifer have been able to drop his Devil form in “Save Lucifer” without the groundwork that Linda laid for him and Chloe tapped into? Probably not. Without growing as a person, Lucifer probably would not have returned to Hell to protect his loved ones.
Let’s be real though, other characters need therapy in the series. We saw Dan have a session with Linda right before her water broke. It’s a good step forward. Over the past several seasons. these characters have been through a lot. Maybe it’s time for them to confront their inner demons so to speak. Or, at least, process their emotions in a healthy and safe environment.
Being real here, not having people go talk to someone after Charlotte’s (Tricia Helfer) death in season 3? It was a bit of a misstep. Maybe Dan would not have been so self-destructive otherwise. Let Doctor Linda get some new patients!
