CHLOE DECKER: THE ONE WOMAN WHO IS IMMUNE TO LUCIFER WHILE ALSO MAKING HIM VULNERABLE.
So I’ve been wanting to write this little thing for a bit now, and since I finally have the time to sit down and concentrate on it, let’s begin !
- Elaine Belloc aka Micheal’s daughter. From the comic’s Lucifer has a niece named Elaine and she can see the dead while also peering into the mind’s of other’s. The typical angelic theory that Chloe doesn’t know who she is and that’s why she has her immunity. Ah, but that would also mean that the romantic presumption would be that Lucifer wants to have sex with his niece because he has no idea about the true identity of his favorite detective. But also, Elaine and Lucifer have a very interesting relationship, not romantically but she does help Lucifer gain his wings back after being redeemed. Also ! There’s another supernatural theory out there on reddit ( see here ), that Chloe is not an angel, but Lilith
- Love. We all know that love is probably the greatest power of all, and it’s typical to a storyline that’s mainly about redemption. I’ve always thought that love is both a curse and blessing, you can use it for either good or bad. But in this case, I think whether it’s romantic or platonic, it’s something very special to Lucifer. Even Tom Ellis is quoted, “A few people have made that assumption, that maybe just because he’s in love with her that he’s gone soft, but our story is much bigger than that.” It suggests that love is a theory, a potential outcome, but there’s so much more than love that weakens Lucifer.
- God’s plan. Chloe’s ability to withstand Lucifer’s gentle prodding and persuasion is a result of something bigger than anyone can comprehend. That essentially, her immunity is a God given gift. The theme of Chloe’s strength and morality constantly comes into play which evidently makes Lucifer more and more intrigued by her. He just can’t pull her over to the dark side !
My overall assumption on who and what Chloe Decker is is this. A hard ass and morally just detective and single mother, but also a human. She is definitely a Lucifer original character and not someone directly involved with the comics. She represents humanity, having that little Devil on her shoulder constantly to try and make her sway and give into her desires. But the thing is, what are those desires and are they even remotely bad or evil ? No. Because since the very beginning she has spoken the truth about what she wants more than anything. To help people. Chloe Decker is humanity at it’s finest, the brave and selfless individual who wants to make this world a better place and safe. In the act of making Lucifer vulnerable, sure, we can say it’s all Chloe because whenever he’s around her she makes him bleed. I don’t think it has anything to do with having some supernatural power herself, she’s just making him more human by being good. The ultimate good versus evil, except no one is really going to Hell for it. She’s not vulnerable to him because she’s has her morals and she’s on point with them.
But these are just my thoughts, things I’ve read in an article or two. We really don’t know what will happen or why these things are happening. We’ll find out soon enough, but really, in the end, I like thinking Chloe is just a normal person who is flawed but recognizes the good in herself. :)
