the double lie

My prediction: they get papped coming back, there's an article about how he found out he's not the dad two weeks ago and this vacation was to make him forget and she's been so supportive. A week later we get the music video and some "leaked" vacation pics. A week or two after that they break up again saying he's not in the place for a relationship.

I loved. Let’s do it (if it turns out like this you can come back to take your prize)

So, no liveblogging of Lucifer tonight because my computer is in the computer hospital, but:

a) LUCIFER MORNINGSTAR YOU DENSE MOTHERFUCKER
b) ACK. BABY.

Basically, my impression from the episode is that I don’t think it was Dad/God actually physically incarnated, but I also don’t think it WASN’T Dad. I think the piece allowed Earl Johnson to channel the divine (as seen by him healing the crazy nurse’s mom, knowing information about Lucifer’s real name/meeting Mom, being unaffected by the drugs, etc) and thus everything he said is how Dad actually feels. He still is in love with his ex-wife and wants her to come home, is proud of Samael/Lucifer, and regrets the pain he has caused his entire family by his own fallibility and bad decisions in the past. However, this is basically an exact repeat of the Chloe situation. What happened with Chloe was real, but the instant Lucifer discovered that there was a catch/his dad seemed to have originated it/all was not what it seemed, he instantly rejected all of it and has more or less shut himself down from Chloe completely to protect her. Now it’s the same with God Johnson. The instant Lucifer discovers there was any kind of catch at all (i.e. that it was an ordinary human channeling God’s words to him, rather than God actually in the flesh) he rejects the whole thing as a lie and doubles down on his conviction that his dad hates him more than anything and wants him to be unhappy. There can be no happy medium with Lucifer right now. It’s all true or it’s all a lie, and that’s the only way he is capable of seeing things.

Next, it hurts my damn heart that after raging against his dad for millennia and considering that he destroyed his life and kicked him out of the house, what Lucifer really, REALLY WANTS is… for his dad to apologize to him and tell him he’s proud of him, and for his parents to get back together, to be happy, and for nothing that happened to their family to have ever happened. His heart was barely in it when he insisted to Linda that he wanted revenge while watching God and Mom dance. I am sure that, being Lucifer, he had some utterly hare-brained plot about making them fall in love and AHA THEY’LL BE MISERABLE BECAUSE LOVE IS PAIN (and it hurts me even more that of course he’d think that right now, given what is going on with Chloe). But it took about 0.2 seconds of him watching them dance (and him being genuinely dismayed and annoyed and shocked that Chloe interrupted the moment) to realize that he doesn’t WANT to keep punishing his parents. He wants the war to be over and for the pain – which all of them have become so good at causing each other – to stop. He wants that more than the centuries of rage and anger and betrayal at his father.

Ouch. My heart.

Honestly, Lucifer is spiralling fast and hard right now. He’s regressed to acting on his own, to not letting anyone in, to using people for his own benefit (something that Chloe also did this episode – I was happy for her trying to connect with someone outside her circle of weird demon friends, especially the director of a literal madhouse because I imagine she often feels that way herself, but she also did it only for a case and got called out on it), and more. Lucifer is only out for revenge and getting his own back and making everyone else suffer as they deserve, and he’s certainly not remotely initiating ANYTHING with Chloe while he’s still convinced she has no choice in being with him or liking him – something that to his mind and his twisted logic, just got doubly confirmed with God Johnson not 100% certainly, absolutely, completely being his father. Lucifer jumped on it after about two seconds, and was desperate for it to be the case, so again, any hint of doubt whatsoever sent the whole house of cards tumbling down. So as with Father Frank or Ella or any other of the messengers that God has sent, this time GOD SENT HIMSELF/HIS VERY WORDS and yet… he still can’t get through. Every attempt he makes to reconcile is interpreted by Lucifer as further proof of his malice and evil intent. There is no winning.

Overall, I think we are headed for an absolutely wild last two episodes. As noted, Lucifer is pushed to just about the brink of what he can take and then some, the red eyes were happening more and more often, and I think he’s going to blow up in a MAJOR way leading into the finale (which would definitely explain the bloody knockdown/drag out fight with Maze). He’s in such a bad place that Dad’s attempt to intervene personally/straighten things out has instead been the straw that broke the camel’s back. Now he has the flaming sword and can presumably really make it work, and yeah, it’s showtime. And it’s gonna be messy.

Welp.
