Plot[edit | edit source]

Lucifer attempts winning over his dimwitted party animal angel brother Jophiel, but finds that the rebellion is still souring opinion towards him; hence Lucifer doesn't get the vote.

Second on Lucifer's list of "swing votes" is Sarariel, his sister who helped him rebel. She thinks he's trying his mojo on her, but Lucifer clarifies he's playing to strengths as a favor granter. Despite a very compelling deal to meet her favorite celebrity and have reservations at his restaurant, Sarariel turns Lucifer down.

Lucifer plays his last trump card; admitting to Zadkiel, the angel of righteousness, that he was wrong about the rebellion and that he has grown since living on Earth. Zadkiel admits Lucifer has spoken well and with genuine emotion in his words, but still won't get his vote; he only came for the good booze. Seeing he can't win, Lucifer reveals the entire truth; the real reason he wants to be God is to be worthy of Chloe, out of love. When Zadkiel asks if she was the gift their father sent, Lucifer snaps and tells him Chloe is much more than that; seeing he's truly lost, Lucifer leaves a stunned Zadkiel to process.

Dan is rushed to the hospital for aid. Lucifer, Chloe, Maze, Linda and Amendial sit in the lobby waiting for answers. A doctor comes out and tells Chloe that Dan has died, causing her to break down. Everyone grieves as Trixie arrives. She demands to see her dad, but Chloe stops her; Trixie realizes what it means. Crying, she begs Lucifer to tell her that Dan is alive as Lucifer never lies. Lucifer can only say "My dear sweet child, I can't."

At Dan's funeral, Ella reveals to Amenadiel that Dan turned in Amenadiel's application for the police academy; Dan believed in him. Amenadiel steps away and Ella meets Carol, whom she decides to give a chance. Amenadiel meets with Lucifer, telling him that he went to Heaven to see Dan. Lucifer imagines Dan is enjoying himself, only to be shocked by Amendiel's next words; Dan's not there. Shocked, Lucifer realizes it means Dan is in hell. Enraged not only the news Michael orchestrated the attacks, but now Dan is suffering eternally, Lucifer shudders that it's not fair. Amenadiel gives the eulogy (as Lucifer cannot due to his creed to never lie), telling the mourners how much Dan helped him grow as a person upon his arrival in LA; he promises to follow the example of friendship and fatherhood Dan led while Lucifer and Maze exact revenge upon Dan's killers.

Lucifer attends a session with Linda, whom tells him that while pain is inevitable, the suffering his grief is causing it optional. Mildly hysterical, Lucifer tells Linda her job should not exist; more specifically pain should not exist. Realizing Michael has gone too far with Dan's death, Lucifer tells Linda that a war is coming.

  • Lucifer calls in every favor he has in the LA underworld to find Dan; showing just how much he valued him as a friend.
