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           the mother of all demons. Like Elaine, she’d not know who she is and basically has Lucifer there to help her realize more about her true identity. So here’s my reason as to why she is neither Elaine or Lilith. The obvious fact is: Lucifer would recognize either one of them. While Elaine was adopted, he definitely met Lilith before and would know her anywhere. While this theory does give a reason to being immune to the Devil’s power of persuasion and maybe even how she makes him vulnerable. I just don’t think it would be plausible, and besides. If Chloe was an actual angel in disguise, she wouldn’t be vulnerable to chronokinesis when other angels are around…. Don’t you think ? 
  • 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. :)

It’s wild to me how I’m still searching for freedom through all of this. Trying to free myself and be comfortable with being me. I feel like it’s going to be a constant growth experience because I’m trying to be involved with others as well while they are on their own journeys. Sometimes I’m in a state of just wanting to share my thoughts with those who I’ve made a connection to and I’ve learned recently that that’s not always a good thing. My thoughts may not always be welcomed and that’s okay. It’s all a part of learning who to be comfortable with and who not to be comfortable with. Also teaches me what to share and with whom to share it. So it’s a lot to the dynamics of rotating with people who seem to operate on a higher level of understanding. I just have to continuously navigate it all with harmony in my heart and peace on my mind.

Swap Meat (5x12)
I was watching this episode yesterday and I noticed this scene which I guess is often forgotten in all the hilarity of the subsequent episode. But I thought it gave a nice insight into baby Sam (with whom I am, of course, obsessed).

4/3/15 Blackhawks @ Sabres: Jonathan “Come Let Me Love You” Toews

This latest episode was…uncomfortable to say the least. The episode did not follow the same format as the episodes usually do, considering that it was all in the form of phone calls and that it was not broadcast on his radio. But then that begs the question, how did we, the listeners, hear it? It was confirmed in this episode that the September and April monologues were actually special episodes on Cecil’s radio show, so if this was not on his show, how was it broadcasted? Who decided that all of us should listen in on Cecil’s phone calls?

There were other unsettling parts of the episode aside from the information that it provided. The opening voice was clearly not Joseph Fink. I’m not sure if it was Jeffrey Cranor, since the only times we’ve heard him was really when he played Carlos in early episodes, so I don’t have much to compare it to. The voice also ended with “And hey…we appreciate you” rather than the usual “And hey…thanks” which threw me off. The episode was not opened up with a mysterious quote by Cecil, but rather by an autonomous voice, yet another strange change. At the end of the episode we did not get to hear a goodnight in any form; all we got was the strange call from who I assume to be Chad. Even on the WTNV YouTube channel, the picture they used for the episode was in a different shade of color than all of the other videos they had posted.

Overall this episode unnerving and it didn’t have anything to do with the content and information of the episode at all! What worried me was simply the format of everything that this episode had to offer and what it could mean in regards to Cecil and Carlos’s safety, as well as that of the whole town.

Imagine if occasionally, when they get the opportunity to leave work early, Cecil or Carlos will greet the other at their place of work by wrapping their arms around the other, yelling something like “Surprise!” Then, one day, Carlos goes to the radio station, sees the familiar shape in the doorway and jumps on him, shouting,“ Surpr-” and then screams because he has accidentally jumped on Kevin.

Weird Ne Thoughts

For non-Ne users, a collection of thoughts that describe what it’s like inside a high Ne user’s brain. No, no, not ACTUALLY high… just… Ne is high in the function stack and - you know what, never mind. Ne is high.
