Of course they would drop the Lucifer Season 5 trailer on the thirteenth. They just can’t help themselves, can they?
And, you know what? It was worth the wait.
Look, is the evil twin thing overdone and corny? Totally. Am I completely here for it and ready for all of the drama and angst and confusion that will undoubtedly ensue as a result of this little twist?
Uh, yes. Abso-freaking-lutely.
And one thing that makes this whole evil twin brother thing even better is that fact that Lucifer’s twin just so happens to be Michael – as in, the archangel Michael. As in, Lucifer‘s rival.
Yeah. That Michael.
Given that these two are mortal (immortal? Look, I truly can’t help myself…) enemies, it’s really intriguing that Michael would come to Earth to impersonate Lucifer whilst knowing that Lucifer has returned to Hell to fulfill his duties there – it really flips the whole Yin and Yang, opposite sides of the same coin, good versus evil schtick those two have got going on on its head because, well…
Michael is the villain in this story.
If there’s one thing we know about Lucifer, it’s that our show doesn’t shy away from religious controversy – like the notion that God is an abusive, neglectful father, angels can be ruthless and twisted, and the devil himself is far from pure evil. This show loves to play around with the nature of good and evil, and what makes someone “evil.”
To make this season’s villain an archangel is just…
It’s just so Lucifer.
It does beg the question:
Why is Michael impersonating Lucifer?
Why does he want to take over and destroy the little life Lucifer made for himself (and left behind) on Earth?
And do we think Lucifer and God will need to work together to stop Michael? Because we know they cast God for this season, meaning he will actually appear, in the flesh, and it has been confirmed that he will appear throughout the season.
So, are we about to see Lucifer and God work together to deal with a jealous, deranged, rogue archangel?
Because, frankly, there’s no way you could miss that steamy kiss in the trailer and, I swear, if that’s not actually Lucifer, I’m gonna lose it.
It has to be him.
What do you think? Is Chloe getting hot and steamy with the right brother or is this going to turn out to be a horrible case of mistaken identity (and, well…dubious consent)?
Place your bets now, ladies and gentlemen, because we’ll have the answers to all of these questions (and more!) when Lucifer Season 5 drops on August 21 on Netflix!
