    I'm still confused about the new lieutenant's behaviour. Something odd about him.

    Dramatic though it was, I laughed at Amenadiel's attempts to walk in his brother's shoes. He's even of a more a fish out of water than Lucifer was in season one.

    3.05 Welcome Back, Charlotte Richards
    Nothing like a taste of Hell to put a mortal in redemption mode.
    I felt sorry for Charlotte, who apparently retained too much of her memories of what transpired while Luci's mom was in charge of her body. Lucifer's sympathetic response, upon realizing that Mom had not returned, showed more of his advancing humanity.

    He wasn't much of a devil in the first place.

    The scence when Charlotte tried to seduce him was hilarious. Good to have her back. :D

    Lucifer giving Trixie swear word "loopholes" was also funny. What a motherflunker. :D

    He is more imature than Trixie, but I suppose that's why we like him.;)

    This is quite a difficult episode to comprehend as it dives so deeply into the past through several flashbacks. When they come in rabidly, some of things are hard to comprehend, especially as things build around a totally new angle, we haven't seen before. But to say that the devil only punishes people, might be wrong for Lucifer being the direct cause for Linda's hubby to go nuts.

    Maybe it was the face that pushed him over the edge before he veered off and fell into his own scheme. I expected Lucifer to quote: "Don't play with fire or you might get burned," to the reporter at the moment of his death. But thing is, he might had saved him as the poisoners would keep antidote around for accidental cases. The murder was more coherent than the reporter at the end. All that study into the supernatural beings and being in denial drove him mad. So I feel bad for him. In fact, I cannot remember another episode where I haven't laughed at something. There just wasn't any in this one.

    Not even the moment when the lady waiting for Lucifer in his bed refused to get untied ?

    That was smirkworthy, although it was incongruous with Luci's feelings for Chloe. It was classic, season one Lucifer.
    I find it interesting that this show's vision of Hell is very similar to that of Preacher -- spending eternity reliving the worst experience of one's life.

    Nice twist at the end. Had we been watching just another loop of the husband's torture in Hell, or did we see his transition from life to his customized version of the afterlife?

    I thought this latest episode is actually one of the strongest I've seen so far in the whole series. The change of POV is refreshing in its exploration of how others perceive Lucifer, and the awesome ending cinched it too. This episode deals with as deep an issue as the series allows given its concept, that hell is of our own making, and does so through themes of obsession, guilt, and denial in a clear-cut way.

    I also liked that the episode reminded us that Lucifer IS the devil. I often feel like the show strays too far from its original concept (sometimes barely making mention of it or exploring it in any meaningful way, stripping the fantastical element and leaving just another police procedural), and it's a good thing when they go back to that subject, to give coherence to the plot and continuity to Lucifer's character. Just because he's progressed as a person shouldn't scrap the narrative of everything to do with his nature, the philosophy behind the character, or hell. I'd say this has been a top 3 episode.
