Lucifer Season 5 Premiere on Netflix
The first part of the 5th season begins by situating the lives of the characters, such as Amenadiel and the therapist Dr. Linda Martin, being the parents of a half-human, half-angel baby. While forensic specialist Ella takes one more of the “bad guys” to her bed.
Lucifer shows up at a party on a yacht just to tell a man that he is about to die.
Chloe, Maze and Ella appear at the crime scene on the yacht, where a criminal named Lee Gardner was shot in the chest and had his hand ripped off (and taken away). Lucifer appears in hell welcoming Lee.
Lee wants to know who killed him, while Chloe, Maze and Ella ask the same question. Both investigations lead to Dirty Doug, a man to whom Lee owed a lot of money.
While the investigation is taking place by the detectives, Lucifer takes Lee to his “torture” in hell.
Chloe and Maze discover with Lee’s sister a safe with a biometric reading – that’s why her hand was pulled out.
Chloe takes Meg home and runs into some bandits. Lucifer appears and helps. Chloe kisses Lucifer, but notices that there is something different. “Time passed differently in hell,” he says. However, Lucifer appears in hell, with Lee, that is, it is not Lucifer who is with Chloe.
Remembering that the second part of Lucifer’s 5th season is yet to come. Wait!
