We love all the characters on Netflix’s Lucifer, but one in particular brings unique and quirky moments that we can’t help but showcase. That’s right, we’re talking about forensic scientist, Ella Lopez. She brings humor and fun to the show- and we of course- appreciate her nerdiness! Here are our top 5 Ella Lopez moments (in no particular order).
1. Season 3, Episode 22: “All Hands on Decker” – Penis Piñata
Chloe’s getting married and that means a bachelorette party organized by our favorite forensic scientist, Ella Lopez. Like any good friend planning a bachelorette party she is going all out; strippers, booze and yes, a specially ordered penis piñata. Unfortunately, Maze steps in in an attempt to avoid any chance of Chloe having second thoughts, and ruins any chance we had of seeing this on our screens.
2. Season 3, Episode 22: “All Hands on Decker” – Alcohol crisis
“All Hands on Decker” gave us some great moments, both Ella-related and not. When Chloe’s bachelorette party rolled around and Maze had removed all alcohol from the detective’s house, Ella, Dr. Linda, and Charlotte search high and low for even just the tiniest drop of booze. The three have a quick powwow in the kitchen, during which Ella states the obvious, that “they should be nipple deep in Jäger” by that point in the party.
3. Season 2, Episode 9: “Homewrecker” – Speaking Klingon
While at the murder scene of the owner of the building in which Lucifer resides, Ella finds pieces of broken glass scattered around an area near the body. In order to help with the forensics side of the investigation, Ella begins to glue the pieces back together, hoping to find a viable fingerprint to link back to a suspect. Upon finishing her project, she stands tall, raises her fist and exclaims “Ta’ vonlu’,” Klingon for ‘The king is trapped.’
4. Season 3, Episode 6: “Vegas With Some Radish” – Counting Cards
We get a small look into Ella’s past, and we absolutely are living for it! In this episode, Ella joins Lucifer for a trip to Las Vegas after he finds out his ex-wife Candy is missing. While going undercover, Ella and Lucifer go to a casino where they start gambling. Ella being the bad ass that she is helps Lucifer win, but once he’s distracted she pushes him out of the way and gets to work on her own. She wins round after round before the audience gets a closer look into Ella’s life, finding out she was once one of the best card counters in Sin City.
5. Season 2, Episode 8: “Trip to Stabby Town” – Murder Reenactment
In this episode, Ella and Lucifer seem to be hiding something from Chloe, sparking denied jealousy throughout the episode which is the perfect setup for this hilarious scene between the three of them. When on a case, Ella describes how she believes a mass yoga studio murder happens by acting it out with Lucifer. The way she pantomimes the killing will definitely make your mind go straight to the gutter, which it seems is right where Chloe’s did!
Let us know what your favorite Ella moment is on Lucifer. We’d love to hear them!
