Lucifer’s Devil face is an important plot point (Picture: Netflix)*There are spoilers about the finale of season four ahead. You have been warned.
Lucifer’s season 4 arrived last month after it was saved from cancellation by Netflix and it seems the show is all about getting in touch with the Devil’s dark side – especially his face.
The former HBO show has often teased fans with hints of Lucifer’s real Devil face, which is the epitome of evil and inspires terror among humans.
Netflix recently got in on the pop culture game and posted a light-hearted side-by-side photo from the show, using the hilarious profile photo vs. tagged photo meme.
The photo features Tom Ellis’s ace, dark eyelashes and all, juxtaposed next to a picture of him all demoned- up, with burnt, mottled skin and creepy crimson eyes.
Season three ended on the mother of all cliff hangers when Lucifer (Ellis) revealed his devil face to human partner and love interest Chloe Decker (Lauren German).
Fans were so desperate to find out what happened after that, they launched an extensive campaign to renew the series, prompting Netflix to hear their calls and buy it up.
Lucifer’s reveal set up the struggle in season four of the show: Chloe grappling to come to terms with the fact that she’s working with, and sort of in love with the actual devil; Eve (yes, that Eve) coming to stir everything up and Lucifer, battling to accept all of himself – including the darkness.
Given that Netflix spent three seasons hinting at, but never showing Lucifer’s literal evil side, it stands to reason that their take on embracing it is a new mood.
Talking about the big reveal after the finale, German told fans: ‘The way I explain it is that Chloe loves Lucifer like we love family…I think after she gets over the initial shock, Chloe without having to fight it, she would accept it.’

‘Chloe knows the truth. So that was the big thrust of season four – exploring Chloe dealing with those ramifications, and how it affected her relationship with Lucifer. Both professionally and personally. Can you work with the devil? Can you love the Devil?’
Netflix has given more room for Lucifer to, well, be a bit naughty, in terms of his language (just shy of the F-bomb) and his nudity (something Tom Ellis found delightful).
Ellis all but confirmed that Lucifer is coming back for a season five thanks to a Q&A.
The main man was joined by show-writers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson who revealed all about their plans about what’s coming up in the next season. And then cheekily added an ‘if there is a next season’ caveat.
