Lucifer Recap: They’re Back, Aren’t They?
Yes, Yes they are.
We begin with Lucifer intercepting a guy stealing an armored truck. We last saw him dry and chapped in the desert, with his wings restored. He hops a ride with the thief, and ends up returning the armored truck to police and leaving the thief in the desert in nothing but his underwear.
When we gets back to the LAPD, he discovers he’s only been missing two days.
“Hot as Hell out here, isn’t it? Well, close anyway.”
He tries to get Dr. Linda to cut his wings off, but she turns him down cold on that one.
He talks to Chloe about having been kidnapped, and when he takes her to the location he woke up, they find a dead body. They figure whoever left Lucifer out there probably left the body, too.
The new Lieutenant arrives, and he’s a very blunt guy. Kind of a dick. However, Ella seems to worship him.
Amenadiel is glad to see Lucifer, and apparently he was the only one who was aware he’d gone missing. He tells Lucifer that his stopping time was a fluke. He doesn’t have his powers back. Luci feels bad enough about this that he neglects to tell Amenadiel he’s grown his wings back.
“I mean, I’ve seen you around, doing your handsome broody thing.”
Lucifer tries to cheer Amenadiel up, but instead Amenadiel just ends up finding the wings Lucifer managed to cut off by himself.
Lucifer and Chloe end up finding out the kidnappers were prank kidnappers for hire, and the guy they subcontracted out to for the desert dropoff freaked out when Lucifer popped his wings and just left him (and the dead guy) out there instead of leaving him awhile and bringing him back.
“We’re going to need a bigger towel.”
Lucifer tries to show Chloe his Devil face, and discovers he doesn’t have it any more. His burned visage and horns were healed along with his wings. He just manages to make an ass of himself and piss Chloe off. Of course, he thinks he cut his wings off, so he doesn’t try to show her those.
We later find out from the dropoff man that someone called The Sinner Man ordered Lucifer’s kidnapping. While Lucifer is questioning the guy, his wings pop out. They’ve grown back.
When Amenadiel confronts Lucifer about his wings, he lets him know they’ve grown back. Amenadiel is astonished, saying that perhaps Lucifer has been forgiven–and if he can be forgiven, anyone can (presumably himself). Lucifer thinks his father may not be the cause. They talk about how The Sinner Man may be a huge problem.
