Lucifer Season 4 hits Netflix in just a few days. Here’s what we know so far based on the first look trailer.
When Fox cancelled Lucifer back in the spring of 2018, it did so when the series’ third -and then final – season had ended on a massive cliffhanger. After three long years of back and forth and fans wondering when the truth would finally come out, the series finally made it happen: Detective Chloe Decker learned that Lucifer Morningstar was, in fact, the Devil himself. And then, before so much as an answer to her reaction could even be teased, the rug was pulled out from under fans the world over when Fox opted not to renew the cult hit series.
Just before the ending of season three, Lucifer’s brother Amenadiel received a truly shocking surprise: the return of his angel’s wings. After Charlotte’s senseless murder, Amenadiel was given his wings back, which allowed him to take flight and transport her soul to Heaven where it belonged. Following that, Amenadiel was neither seen nor heard from for the rest of the season.
But that all changes with the season four trailer. The now winged Amenadiel returns to interrogate his brother regarding the nature of his relationship with Eve – even warning him that her presence is truly dangerous.
Trixie and Maze patch things up
A fan favorite realtionship, the unlikely friendship between Dan and Chloe’s young daughter, Trixie, and the demon Mazikeen has been going strong for two seasons now. Except, toward the end of season three, the duo wound up on bad terms with one another, after Trixie overheard Maze arguing with Dan and calling her a brat in the process.
But if the season four trailer is anything to go by, it looks like these two will be on good terms once again. A brief hug can be glimpsed between the two during the trailer, with Trixie grinning bright as ever. Here’s to hoping for a speedy reconciliation.
Lucifer is embracing his Devil side more than ever
Lucifer has struggled to reconcile the truth of his Devil nature with his life as Lucifer Morningstar for the series’ entire run. But if the season four trailer is to be believed, it sure seems like – with Eve’s convincing – Lucifer is willing to go bigger and badder than ever before. Multiple scenes in the trailer find him engaging in violent moments, with both his Devil face and Devil eyes on display.
It’s not clear what leads him to this point, or whether it has anything to do with how the truth is handled by Chloe. But it’s certainly concerning to see Lucifer regress this way, after he’s made such progress in seasons past.
A really emotional Lucifer and Chloe confrontation is coming
For the first half of the trailer, the Netflix series seems to dance around the nature of Chloe’s reaction to the truth about Lucifer’s identity. The duo are working together still, and though she seems a little off, Chloe doesn’t really seem to be showing many emotions at all. That is, until a scene finds the two of them alone, in Lucifer’s apartment.
He asks her point blank, “Could you accept who I truly am?” Chloe, sobbing hysterically, tells him, “I don’t know.” The scene is then contrasted with Eve telling Lucifer he doesn’t have to change at all. So there’s clearly some real tension to be expected between these three characters, and these diametrically opposed relationships.
A dangerous new prophecy
“When the Devil finds his first love, evil shall be released.” Those are the daunting words uttered by Graham McTavish’s character in one of his scenes with Chloe glimpsed in the trailer. If that doesn’t sound like an ominous prophecy for the entire season…
We can’t help but wonder, too, just exactly what the prophecy means. Will the first love refer to Eve, who was the first woman altogether, or perhaps to Chloe, who could very well be Lucifer’s first true love? Only time will tell. But it’s clear that there are some real threatening stakes at hand here for this possible love triangle. And we’re as anxious as ever.
