So.. binge watched the first half of season 5 and it was great with a few flaws that don't detract too much. Spoiler: Season 5 I won't review each episode now, go see them for yourself but the first 8 had a quite good mix of comedic episodes mixed in the further develeopment of all characters and Chloe/Lucifer especially. I liked that all characters get to experience their own story from Dan being the butt of the joke more than usual in the first few episodes until we see him breaking down once he uncovers Lucifer's true identity by "mistake" and is terrified he'll go to hell for his past mistakes. One arc especially touched me and that was Maze - she's in a very tough spot at the start of the season since Eve left her and all around her people are starting to get get happy and finding their soulmates while she can't catch a break. It may be seen as repetitive since she already turned against Lucifer previously but the story and development was well done. At times the back and forth between Chloe and Lucifer was a bit too much with mostly Lucifer being his own worst enemy once again but now that Michael is actively working on sabotaging his life Lucifer may not have been completely at fault. This lead to one amazing sequence in the mid season finale when all the Celestials (Amenadiel, Lucifer, Michael and Maze) start duking it out in the time frozen police precinct with Maze and Michael teaming up sort of against the other two. Unfortunately for people who have followed the news about the show the opening credits spoiled the appearance of Dennis Haysbert (who we knew would play God) and he shows up as the fight peaks and ends it - cue credits. I give this season an easy 8 out of 10, some flaws but i was thoroughly entertained and can't wait to see what God brings to the table now in the second half of the season.
