‘Lucifer’ Episode Guide (May 8): A Therapist at an Elite Private School Found Dead

Meanwhile, Chloe wants to air some emotions of her own, but when a therapist and head of admissions at a prestigious private school turns up dead, the team must get to the bottom of it in an all-new episode of “Lucifer” airing Monday, May 8 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

The Devil has come to Los Angeles…

Based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, “Lucifer” takes everything we think we know about the world’s greatest villain and flips it upside down. Bored and unhappy in Hell, Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis, “Rush”) abandons his throne and heads to the city of Angels looking for a heck of a good time.

Lucifer is devilishly handsome and charismatic, and he has a talent for drawing out people’s darkest secrets. When the brutal murder of an acquaintance of his attracts the attention of LAPD homicide detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German, “Chicago Fire”), he is hell-bent on helping her find the perpetrators, and discovers a passion for punishing the guility here on earth. Initially, Chloe is dismissive of Lucifer, but when she sees him in action, she becomes intrigued. But Chloe’s soon-to-be ex-husband and colleague on the police force, Dan (Kevin Alejandro, “True Blood”), is wary of Lucifer’s intentions, especially when their young daughter, Trixie (Scarlett Estevez, “And Then There Was You”), takes a liking to him.

As Lucifer’s interest in Chloe’s cases grows, so does his curiosity about her. Of all the people he’s encountered, she’s the only one who isn’t affected by his devilish ways. And while working with her, for the first time in roughly 10 billion years, he feels something awaken deep within him. Compassion? Sympathy? The very thought disturbs him – enough to seek out the guidance of a therapist, Linda (Rachael Harris, “The Hangover”).

Lucifer’s newfound humility infuriates his best friend and confidante, Mazikeen aka Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt, “The Librarians”), a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman. At the same time, the angel Amenadiel (DB Woodside, “Suits,” “24”), has been sent to Los Angeles by God to convince Lucifer to return to the underworld…can the Devil incarnate be tempted toward the side of Good, or will his original calling pull him back toward Evil?

“Lucifer” is produced by Warner Bros. Television, in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television. The series is based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint. Tom Kapinos (“Californication”) wrote and executive-produced the pilot. The series is executive-produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson. Len Wiseman serves as director and executive producer. Kapinos will serve as executive consultant on the series.
