‘Lucifer’ Season Four, Episode Three Recap: “O, Ye of Little Faith, Father”
Time to raise a little hell! Lucifer has returned to Netflix for a fourth season after being canceled from FOX. And this latest season might be the best one yet!
Spoilers ahead! You’ve been warned!
In the third episode of this season, “O, Ye of Little Faith, Father,” it seems that everyone has a lot going on in their lives that connect somehow to Mr. Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis).
The case for this episode was trying to find a killer that murdered two people by stabbing them in the back. Both victims had been previous members of a gang called Los Xs but had left and turned their lives around. The first suspect, Andres Brody (Stephen Schneider), was a dead end, and he only wanted to apologize about his actions from the past.
It turns out that the killer, Oscar, was the one that had helped them get out of the gang life. But there was an ulterior motive to the murders. Before taking his own life, Oscar says to Lucifer, “Show us who you are!” He knew about Lucifer’s true face, and he wanted to be punished for his past actions. And upon further investigation, the team discovers that the Catholic church owned the house Oscar was in.
Father Kinley (Graham McTavish) was there in the house behind a two-way mirror, hoping to catch Lucifer in his true form.
Aside from catching the bad guys, each character had personal struggles happening.
Ella (Aimee Garcia) is having a crisis of faith so significant that she reaches the point of removing her cross necklace. She has seemingly stopped going to church on a regular basis, and she has been drinking tequila lately as well. But she still rocks the best t-shirts.
Dan (Kevin Alejandro), who is mourning Charlotte (Tricia Helfer), is angry at everything, from Lucifer’s prank of putting his phone number on a Chewbacca sound contest sheet, to having to wait around for warrants, even to believing in a higher power. This results in him going rogue with Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and going with her to the Los Xs headquarters and beating them all up to get the name of the killer.
While having a drink, Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) lets it slip that Linda (Rachael Harris) is pregnant, and he does not know what to do, which is precisely how she feels. When he visits her later and brings her some baby things, she tells him that she wants to do this alone, because it is how she is used to handling things. Maze goes to visit Linda at work and starts talking about, how in hell, birth torture was always a favourite. This understandably makes Linda very uncomfortable. (As an aside, I am loving Maze’s hair this season!)
While Linda is waiting at an appointment, Amenadiel shows up and awkwardly proposes to her. But she says no. They have a heart to heart, and he holds her hand, comforting her as they wait.
Lucifer meets with Father Kinley who gave him a dire warning: he tells Lucifer that Chloe (Lauren German) went to the Vatican when she was in Rome to find out how to defeat the Devil and send him back to Hell. When he asks Chloe if she told anyone about him, she lies to him saying no. Lucifer then reaches out to Father Kinley to tell him he is wrong about Chloe. But when Lucifer leaves, Father Kinley says, “Trap is set. Everything will come together soon.”
Chloe, wanting to show Lucifer that he can change, takes him to a soup kitchen to volunteer. He confronts her about lying to him after she stops him from drinking a vile that would have sedated him. Chloe admits that she was helping Father Kinley at first, because she was conflicted and terrified. But when she saw him again, she remembered how she felt about him.
Lucifer asks Chloe if she could be with him, even if he cannot change. He shows her his real face; she has a hard time looking at him and cannot give him an answer. As Chloe leaves, you can see that Lucifer is holding back tears. But down in the club, a beautiful woman arrives (Inbar Lavi) and orders an appletini. Does she have something to do with the prophecy? “When the devil walks the Earth and finds his first love, evil shall be released.”
