Spoiler-Free Review of “Lucifer” Season 5 Part 1 on Netflix: Well Worth the Wait

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“City of Angels…I’ve missed you.”

Lucifer follows the devil himself, who decides to take a vacation on earth while teaming up with Detective Chloe Decker to solve crimes. The show is extremely popular and a fan favorite. Season 5 will feature 16 episodes in total. Part 1 premiered on August 21st 2020 with eight new episodes (approximately 55-60 minutes in length). The show stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, and Lesley Ann-Brandt.

Lucifer has certainly been through Hell and back (literally) over the seasons and we have also witnessed an epic kind of will-they-won’t-they love between him and Chloe. We know that Lucifer has been confirmed for a final season 6, but season 5 looks like it will be jam-packed with quite a lot.

Here is the trailer:

Lucifer Season 5 Part 1 gives us everything we have been waiting for and more. We get fun episodes, a new villain, and several twists and reveals that will have you on the edge of your seat.

But, has Lucifer season 5 part 1 done enough to measure up to its previous seasons? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Standout Episodes.

Lucifer joins veteran shows like Charmed, Supernatural, and It‘s Always Sunny in Philadelphia with a super entertaining noir episode that is just brilliantly done. We get spectacular musical performances, a twist that continues the plot, and more.

This may be one of my favorite episodes yet. I thought that season 5 did a good job overall of providing us with some truly great standalone episodes.

The Ladies Night out that was teased a while back was also truly fantastic!

More please!

Lucifer Season 5 Netflilx Maze

Supporting characters get the development they deserve.

Maze is my favorite character on the show so I was truly happy to see her get some much needed screen time. Her character goes through quite the journey on the show, which was needed.

Other supporting characters like Linda, Ella, and Dan also finally get the chance to become more than just one of the gang. We saw some really vulnerable moments for all of them and I really appreciated the attention to this.

The moments we have been waiting for have arrived.

I won’t be listing any spoilers in this review, but let’s just say that some of the moments we have been anxiously waiting for have finally arrived and…wow!

Enjoy them!!!!!

The Cons:

We need more episodes!

Seriously, the only con I can come up with is that we have to wait for Part 2 to be released. We don’t know when that will be as of yet, but it’s safe to say that it will be in 2021 since production had to be halted during the pandemic.

So am I in or out?

I think it’s safe to say that I’m in 100 percent!!!!!

Season 5 may be my favorite season yet! Every episode got better and better. The plot kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time and the reveals were beyond amazing. I can’t wait for new episodes!!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Lucifer season 5 part 1 in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

Ranking the top 5 Songs Performed on “Lucifer”

Happy Wednesday TV Fans! After recently completing my first full watch of Lucifer, I have to admit that I am beyond obsessed. I can’t wait for Netflix to release the season 5 premiere date and I am already ranking Lucifer as one of my favorite series of all time.

Seriously, it’s so good! I highly recommend it!

One of the reasons why I love Lucifer so much is because of the wonderful musical numbers. Tom Ellis is absolutely brilliant and fantastic and somehow turns some already epic songs into unique and timeless renditions. At first I was slightly skeptical about the musical numbers, but I quickly adapted and welcomed them on the show.

The showstopping numbers are entertaining on their own, but I love how some of the performances truly highlight some key moments on the show and even elevate them to something even greater.

Tom Ellis is born to perform, but I also was surprised and impressed by some of the supporting cast members as well, who should think about performing more often.

The performances somehow mirror our own moods, which is not always easy to do. Shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Charmed did a fantastic job with this previously, but it’s difficult to seamlessly throw in musical numbers and Lucifer just makes it look effortless.

I’m hoping that we eventually get a full musical episode and perhaps we can see something like that in season 5 if we’re lucky, but for today, I am going to be ranking my top 5 songs performed on the series so far.

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not up to date on the series.**

Without any further delay, let’s get to my list!

My Top 5 Songs Performed on Lucifer are:

5

Luck Be A Lady 

Song featured in Season 3, episode 6. Performed by Lucifer, featuring Ella!

In this episode, Lucifer and Ella head to Vegas to track down Candy. The team-up between Lucifer and Ella is hilarious on its own and they really make quite the duo! Ella looks absolutely stunning in her dress, but she also shares the stage with Lucifer during this performance.

Tom Ellis channels his Frank Sinatra with flair, but adding in Ella as one of the “Morningstar” backup dancers makes this number truly stand out. Hit him with your feather boa again, girl!

4

I Will Survive

Song featured in Season 3, episode 17. Performed by Axara and Lucifer.

After a pop singer’s life is in danger, she is supposed to remain on lockdown while the police figure this out, but Axara loves the spotlight and decides to perform to keep herself occupied. Only, Lucifer decides to stop the performance, but Axara refuses, forcing Lucifer to grab the microphone and…join in on the song.

The words actually match up with Lucifer trying to get Axara to leave, which is beyond hilarious and Axara may have just been outperformed by the original diva, Lucifer!

3

Eternal Flame

Song featured in Season 2, episode 14. Performed by Lucifer. Sings to Chloe.

After making fun of Chloe’s playlist, Lucifer takes things one step further. Chloe is trying to make her way through a club during an investigation and Lucifer decides to get on stage and dedicate one of her favorite songs to her. 

This moment is beyond sweet and adorable and Chloe’s reaction is everything in the crowd.

Later on in the series, we get to witness Chloe and Lucifer slow dancing to “Only You,” which is another one of my favorite moments, but Lucifer’s performance absolutely deserves a spot on our list today.

2

Wonderwall

Song featured in Season 4, episode 9. Performed by Maze. Sings to Eve.

“Wonderwall” is already one of my favorite songs and happens to be performed on my absolute favorite series of all time, Lost. So, it’s safe to say that I have very high expectations here.

However, when Maze (my favorite character) decides to take a leap of faith and show a “grand gesture” to reveal her feelings to Eve, this song took on new meaning for me.

Maze’s performance is soulful and beautiful. Part of the reason why I love this performance so much is because we know that Maze rarely shows her vulnerability and she lets it all out in the open here, exposing her heart and reminding us that perhaps this demon really does have a soul after all…

Some honorable mentions before revealing my number one pick are:

All Along the Watchtower (Season 2, episode 1)

Sinnerman (Season 1, episode 6)

Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door (Season 1, episode 9)

Drum roll please…

1

Creep

Song featured in Season 4, episode 1. Performed by Lucifer.

Tom Ellis is beyond brilliant during this performance. I think I have listened to this rendition a thousand times and may even prefer it to the original song…it’s that good. Part of what makes it so epic is it mirrors Lucifer’s own inner battle. Lucifer is at a breaking point and is trying to figure out who he really is and what his purpose is.

Every single breath he takes and every note makes you sympathize with his struggle, stirring so many emotions at once. This performance truly moves me and showcases just how incredibly talented Tom Ellis is. Perfection…

I hope you enjoyed the list and feel free to post your own thoughts and comments on your favorite songs performed on Lucifer. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!
