Last night, Lucifer and Chloe solved another murder despite their constant squabbles. But “The Would-Be Prince of Darkness” also introduced the amusing but provocative concept of someone trying to steal the Devil’s identity. Demons: they’re just like us!
Lucifer is horrified, mostly because his imitator is a “cheap knock-off” who’s “diluting the Lucifer brand” (and endangering Lucifer’s reputation with the ladies!)
The fake Devil is said to have committed the following offenses:
- Performed at a rap battle in the Valley
- Destroyed the honeymoon suite at the Budget Hut in Tarzana
- Skipped out on a $2,000 tab at “Zany Wings”
- Started a modeling agency
- Pitched a web series
- Been a “two-pump chump” who cries after sex
Of course, Lucifer’s identity being stolen is mostly used as a way for the character to literally confront himself; his surprising evolution into something more human than demon is clearly going to be a major theme going forward ... along with, of course, those incessantly show biz-themed homicides that Los Angeles apparently has no shortage of.
