2. Lucifer: Evolved
A major through-line of the series is how the title character changes over time. The Lucifer of season 1 is vastly different from the Lucifer of season 5. Honestly? It’s great to see how he’s evolved over the course of the seasons.
He’s still the same guy, but he’s also someone who reaches out to others and tries to help. Seriously, the character growth is just amazing to have witnessed.
With his new invulnerability around Chloe, it will be interesting to see how this plot is explored throughout the fifth season. One way that it could work ties in with the angel self-actualization that Amenadiel (DB Woodside) preaches.
What if the invulnerability is because Lucifer, himself, feels…good about himself? Like he has the love of Chloe, he has people who care about him, and maybe he’s feeling like he can do anything? No one’s journey to self-love is ever complete, of course. But it would be a great way to end the season, to see him as his best self.
3. Maze gets a soul
Everyone’s favorite demon is not looking for love. She’s looking to have a soul instead. Considering that Maze was once proud of her soulless state, it definitely shows her own character arc. Will she get a soul?
Seeing a demon get a soul would definitely be a great capper to season 5. As it shows that maybe souls are something that some people have to earn, like as Lisa Simpson once said. Hopefully, it doesn’t end with her going through Demon Trials ala Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
How it could possibly go about? Maybe it has to do with the immortality ring that Lilith gave Lucifer back in the day. It would be great to see Maze deal with her mother issues in a way that puts the ring back into play.
Maybe this wouldn’t be the season-ender, but it’s definitely something that should work into the end of the season. A demon with a soul? It sounds like a big deal.
4. Time skip
Lucifer, believe it or not, takes place over the course of, like, two years. Maybe? The timeline is wonky, but it’s a lot of stuff happening over a pretty short period of time either way.
Much like series such as Riverdale, the series could benefit from some sort of time skip at the end of season 5. After all, Scarlett Estevez can’t pretend to a precocious kid much longer for the show. Plus, seeing Baby Charlie older? That would be cool. Maybe his angel powers don’t come in until he’s older.
In addition to the considerations for the show’s child actors, Lucifer would benefit from a time skip because, well, it would give a chance for characters to get into a routine. Season 6 would be a disruption, of sorts, to that routine. There would be more stories to mind from it.
