Upon leaving Hell, Lucifer Morningstar retreats to Los Angeles for a more exciting life. When the murder of a friend connects him with LAPD Detective Chloe Decker, Lucifer becomes intrigued with the idea of punishing criminals, sending the Devil himself into a struggle between good and evil.
The episode revolves around the untimely demise of Delilah, a musician that Lucifer himself coaxed into the spotlight by influencing the right people, in front of Lucifer's swanky LA club, Lux. Though Lucifer treats most of humanity with bemused indifference and takes an obscene joy out of exposing their darkest desires, his underlying ruthlessness and unexpected compassion come through whilst hunting down those responsible for Delilah's death. Not everyone is pleased with Lucifer's newest obsession. His brother, the angel Amenadiel, is sent by their father to order Lucifer back to Hell. He's met with unsurprising resistance by Lucifer, who is largely unconcerned by the state of Hell since his departure.
Mazikeen, also known as Maze, a Lilin from Hell, is also unimpressed by Lucifer's newest fascination with humanity, and Chloe's resistance to his charm.
