Notes and Trivia[]

  • Lucifer is the one who says the title name in the episode.

Amenadiel warns Eve that having rejected Heaven, she may not be allowed back in when her mortal life ends once again, but she is unconcerned.
  • Eve refers to Abel as a "sweet and gentle" but when he was resurrected in Season 3 he was a boorish sex crazed fool and according to Cain, Abel was also trying to kill him when they fought.
  • After being shot in the gut and struggling to survive Lucifer says the episode title in response to Eve kissing Ella.
  • This is the second time that Lucifer has been shot in the gut, first by Malcolm. However, this time, he is able to hold onto life.
