The dark lords of television have arranged it so that on Mondays, you can watch Lucifer at 9pm on Fox, then switch over to A&E for Damien at 10pm. The jury’s still out on Damien—we weren’t super-stoked on the first episode—but Lucifer turned in one of its best yet with “Wingman,” as the relationship between “Lucy” and Amenadiel reached a breaking point.
All season long, Amenadiel’s main objective has been to convince Lucifer to return to hell, and he’s willing to do anything—including seduce Lucifer’s therapist—to get what he wants. Last night, Lucifer learned how low Amenadiel was willing to sink with his trickery, once he solved the Mystery of the Missing Angel Wings.
But the most poignant part of their emotional brawl is the fact that despite everything that’s gone down between them, that there’s clearly still affection there. Witness this rare moment of snarky shit-talking, after the pair infiltrates an auction of religious artifacts.
Who knew St. Paul liked to overindulge? Lucifer may be overly cheeky at times, but that’s still preferable to Damien—which treats the religious aspects of its story with deadly seriousness.
