A big bad is coming, and it’s not the devil you know
Per TVLine the devil you don’t know drops in on when they start a “three episode procedural arc” on Lucifer’s January 16th return.
Portraying Dr Jacob Carlisle, a “brilliant neuroscience professor” crossing paths with Lucifer, Dekay’s appearance will result in consequences you can’t come back from… i.e. deadly ones *shudder*
Co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich teased honing more in on the will/they won’t they of Lucifer and Chloe and the Big Bad they’re about to encounter.
“We always try to explore duality and the gray area — you don’t have just ‘bad guys’ and ‘good guys.’ And that’s kind of him, basically,” said Modrovich to TVLine. “He starts doing terrible things, but his intentions aren’t bad. He was faced with making a horrible moral call, in the middle of distress, and now he’s kind of backpedaling from that. But in doing that, he does bad things.”
Big bad or not, he’s also as morally gray as Momm which does not surprise me, as this show has established their skill in having characters who despite making questionable choices may also have hold good intentions.
However it goes one thing is clear – we are in for a wild and crazy ride starting next Monday and I’ll be here for every minute of it!
Lucifer returns January 16th at 9/8c on Fox.
