Recap “Lucifer: Sin Eater”

Lucifer and Chloe team up to investigate a serial killer punishing others for their misdeeds. Amenadiel continues to deal with his fading powers. Maze decides she’s had enough of Mama Morningstar.

Lucifer’s mother doesn’t understand her son or his fascination with all things Human. Of all of the things he could do, why is he so determined to pursue a job in the Human world?  It’s something Lucifer, himself, doesn’t understand.  When his latest case offers him the opportunity to answer that question, he takes it – and realizes a few things about himself and his motivations in the process.

When he comes face-to-face with his mother and brother, Lucifer announces why he’s teamed with Chloe.  He enjoys punishing people; giving them their due.  It makes him happy.  The locale might have changed, but his path remains the same.

Amenadiel decides to rebel and refuses to deliver on his promise to take his mother to Hell. Lucifer, however, intends to honor his deal with his Father. He sentences his mother to live on Earth among the Humans she hates. If she truly loves her sons, he says, it’s a price she will have to pay.

Overall, I enjoyed this episode. How is Lucifer’s mom getting these powers?  Could it be linked to Amenadiel’s issues? We’ll have to wait and see.

Parting thoughts:

  • Amenadiel continues to hide his condition from his brother, but he can’t keep that up for long. Eventually Lucifer will figure it out.
  • Finally, a Maze and Dr. Linda scene. I wish we’d gotten a better glimpse into the friendship between these two before Lucifer’s mom entered the scene.
  • There’s the halitosis. It travels, doesn’t it?
  • Dan suggested a divorce. I didn’t expect that.
  • They’re going to have to find a good story line for Trixie.
