Brianna Hildebrand, Negasonic Teenage Warhead herself, joins the main cast this season as Rory, a previously unheard-of angel with a grudge against Lucifer. Her character addition makes for some interesting developments, but in the end it feels like wish fulfillment on the part of the writers — not to mention the storyline is almost completely borrowed from the fifth season of The Flash. I must admit, though, Hildebrand gives an empathetic and grounded performance, and that makes up for any shortcomings when it comes to her arc.
Lucifer continues to be gripping and engaging, even in its final hour. Wrapping up in expected finale fashion, there’s not much more I could’ve asked for. I love the characters and I love this world, but I appreciate that it’s not being stretched out and overstaying its welcome (as some shows are wont to do). An Arrow-esque ending made my heart soar — Lucifer understands what’s at its core, and it gives the fans what they want. I’m grateful that Netflix gave this show a second chance, so it can get a proper and satisfying ending. [Grade: A-]
