Spoiler alert: Rory is the grown child of Chloe (Lauren German) and Lucifer (Tom Ellis). Rory adores her mom and sister Trixie (Scarlett Estevez). However, Rory’s fury at Lucifer for apparently abandoning her and Chloe before Rory’s birth in the present has magically swept Rory from twenty years in the future to present-day Los Angeles for a confrontation. This dovetails with Lucifer’s ultimate decision to return to Hell as a new kind of […]Read On »

LUCIFER’s sixth and final season – now streaming on Netflix with all previous seasons – had some new challenges.

Co-executive producer Mike Costa wrote the LUCIFER Season 6 premiere, “Nothing Ever Changes Around Here.” The episode has Lucifer and Chloe going to the Magic Castle (a real establishment in Hollywood) to see magicians perform, only to get caught up in […]Read On »
