That’s glimpsed in the (very fun) Lucifer Season 5B trailer, and lucky for therapist Dr. Linda Martin (Rachael Harris), she gets to be present for it. “Oh my God,” she says, before correcting herself with, “I mean, you.”
It looks like there will also be a chance for “Take Your Father to Work Day,” as God sees what Lucifer does. But where’s his son’s desk, he wonders, after seeing that Detective Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) has one. “Maybe if you work hard enough you might one day rise to this man’s level,” God suggests to Lucifer. And it just keeps getting better, as the two head to Linda for a bit of therapy. “I think it’s time that you and I worked on our relationship, so that I may have a relationship,” Lucifer explains.
So how will Lucifer and the others react when God decides it’s time to retire? (Can God retire? Apparently, he can.) Lucifer declares, “I’m going to be God,” but he’s not the only one after the job. So is his twin, Michael (Ellis), who’s gathering support and preparing for war.
Watch the trailer below to see the brothers clash on the battlefield — wings out! — a look at the musical episode, and more. Plus, how worried does Lucifer’s “if I ever said those three words to you, it would be a lie” to Chloe after she told him she loved him have you worried about their future?
In the second half of Season 5, Netflix teases, “secrets will be revealed, heroic sacrifices will be made, and the world will never be the same.”
