Lucifer season 5 part 2 is finally here with its hellishly good-looking devil. The series is created by Tom Kapinos and stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Lesley-Ann Brandt and D.B. Woodside, alongside other cast members.
And Lucifer season 5 part 2 is back and I will just start this review off by saying that Lucifer is a series that is beyond any reviews. As I had said in my previous review of part 1, this is a series you watch for the entertainment factor and not to point out critical flaws. Will it be entertaining? Hell yes. Will you find many, MANY flaws? Hell yes. We don’t criticise the devil in this house though.
With that out of the way, Lucifer season 5 part 2 starts off with God on earth. Just when his three sons, Lucifer, Amenadiel and Michael, are about to butcher each other, He comes down to tell everyone to get along. Of course, Lucifer is against the idea but Michael, trying to please his father, is more accepting… to accepting.
Chloe and Lucifer’s relationship, too, is better here. We finally have a somewhat mature relationship between the two that we have been waiting to see for the past four to five seasons and I’m glad that that ship has finally sailed.
Now, if you thought your family dinner time was uncomfortable, then you should really dig into the first episode. If Lucifer season 5 part 2 is great at something it’s giving us some really great drama. And good god do we see some drama in the episode titled Family Dinner. Not only does Lucifer bring out some uncomfortable truths to the table, but he asks his father a specific question which the latter again answers cryptically. Oof was that extremely awkward – especially for poor Linda who’s just starstruck being in the presence of God.
Lucifer season 5 part 2 second episode, titled Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam, has the entire gang breaking into dance. I swear the series is not even trying to be serious anymore. They know their strong point and are really holding on to it hard. Of course, God had something to do with it – but it is hilarious to see Lucifer and the gang dance and sing their hearts out throughout the episode at the most inopportune moments. Additionally, there’s a scene where God meets Dan – it lasts for about a minute or two, but it’s top TV content. So funny.
Additionally funny is God doing regular human things – cutting onions, fixing a dance pole, learning how to pee and being very jealous – you know, normal stuff. It’s hella funny and very dad-like. On the other hand, another favourite character makes an appearance as well later on and I was surprised and a little happy to see them back. Hint: She’s annoying as shit but very sweet.
On the other hand, another very nice story arc to come out of Lucifer season 5 part 2 is the fact that Lucifer finally gets things sorted with God. I love how things started in the series and then how it ends later on. This season has seen almost all of our previous characters come back and thus it’s no wonder that that would bring a few tears to the eyes. Additionally, the family dynamic and their struggles feel very real, almost human. You connect with their problems and are invested in them. Unlike last season which I found to be a tad bit repetitive, this one has a healthy dose of everyone and their points of view.
Now, without wasting much more time, let’s jump to the most interesting episodes of Lucifer season 5 part 2. Although to be fair, it’s all pretty interesting, but I’d say episodes 15 and 16 will definitely take the cake. One features a war to be God and one features a tragic death of someone close. The war to be God, honestly, I felt did not end satisfactorily. In the sense that, it started off great, reached a good peak in the middle, and then suddenly just ended. All explanations were given, but still, I would’ve liked one more episode to properly end off the season.
Additionally, I liked Michael’s character in part 2 more than part 1. Although I realise that part 1 was more of a place where Michael’s true nature came to light a bit better and cemented his place in our lives etc. However, his character made sense and showed more purpose in this Lucifer season 5 part 2.
Casting, too, is great. I think Dennis Haysbert is great as God and is both scary and kind, but more of the latter. But major props to Tom Ellis for playing the delicious Lucifer and his despicable twin Michael. Honestly, he was so good as Michael that I hated him and his mousey walk every time he came on-screen. Major props.
Summing up: Lucifer season 5 part 2
That being said, Lucifer season 5 part 2 is one good season. I wasn’t too fond of the first part of the season, but this one surely makes up for it. Bringing back all the old characters, adding the right dose of emotion and funny and some good-old war to the mix does a lot for the show. There’s ample character growth, we know why everyone’s doing what and then there’s some case-solving too if that counts in a show such as this one. All in all, this was a satisfying end to season 5. The ending clearly shows chances of a season 6, so if you’ve been a fan like me, I can’t wait to see what the next season brings!
Lucifer season 5 part 2 (or, as Twitter calls it, Lucifer season5B) is streaming on Netflix.
