[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Lucifer Season 6, Episode 7 “My Best Fiend’s Wedding.”]
“Drama? It’s Maze and great feelings, what could go wrong,” asks Amenadiel (DB Woodside) as everyone prepares for the demon (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and Eve (Inbar Lavi) on Lucifer. And yes, something is wrong. What could be worse than Adam (yes, this Adam, played by Scott MacArthur) showing up and wanting to get Eve back?
Meanwhile, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) continues to fail to be the parent of his future daughter, Rory (Brianna Hildebrand), although in her defense this time is not entirely her fault. Plus, coroner Ella Lopez (Aimee Garcia) has pretty much figured it out on her own at this point, so who can blame her for struggling with everything she knows about who is at the wedding and dealing with it by drinking. (too much)?
Additionally, Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) is still a ghost, always making Amenadiel look a little crazy by apparently not speaking to anyone, and still stuck on Earth due to some guilt, he must feel he can’t. understand. And with Lucifer still not becoming God, Chloe Decker (Lauren German) decides she returns to the LAPD to help Amenadiel and Sonya (Merrin Dungey) clean it from the inside out.
Maze and Eve still have some issues to work out
Because Maze doesn’t want anyone and nothing to ruin their marriage, she refuses to invite her siblings. But it turns out that it’s Eve’s side that they have to worry about, as Adam shows up to take her home. He sees what she is doing as a cry for help and cannot believe that she has fallen in love with a demon. They go together, he argues, but as she points out, “I didn’t choose you. I’ll choose Maze.
Adam ends up going to see Dr. Linda Martin (Rachael Harris) without even knowing who she is to complain about his ex-wife, and she advises him to move on. It takes time, she says, suggesting about a month for each year together. “How many years is a million months?” He asks, but she doesn’t put it on until he tells her that Eve is getting married the next day. When he finds out that she is the officiant, she realizes that she is in trouble.
Lucky for Linda, Maze and Eve find out pretty quickly that Adam took her away. Unfortunately, even attracting Adam doesn’t solve all of their problems as Eve quickly realizes that it was Maze who made sure he heard about their marriage. But why? She can’t be a mother, let go of the demon, worried about ending up like hers. And since she’ll never be normal, she couldn’t just talk about it with Eve like other couples would. It seems in Maze’s mind, the real one she’s an evil demon who ruins everything, and for Eve, who feels like she’s the only one who believes in her and them, that means the marriage is called off. .
When Lucifer joins Maze and Adam, he puts the pieces together. “When it comes to self-sabotage, I’m afraid you’ve outdone me,” he said to his “best demon.” With the wedding over, Adam should tell them where Linda is, right? Wrong. It turns out that after Lucifer mojoes him, he wants her to help him cope with his toxic masculinity issues. “So you assert your dominance over a woman in order to learn how to stop asserting your dominance over women?” Lucifer asks in disbelief. As Maze says, “you are beyond help.” Adam agrees to take them to Linda. But just as the most primitive of men can evolve, the most badass of demons can mellow, and that means Maze has work to do to make sure the marriage takes place.
And so Lucifer’s wedding gift to the couple is to make sure Eve listens when Maze brings some of her siblings to her (in freshly dead corpses). (“It’s both something old and something new in something borrowed with a lot of wicked blue bits, so I call it a grand slam,” he notes.) She’s terrified of the idea of becoming his mother, Maze admits to his fiancee, but while she is never going to be normal, she can keep trying and changing because she too believes in them. Eve just wants her to be who she is, and the wedding is back!
Eve’s wishes are sweet: “Maze, I know that at some point you became convinced that you were not worthy of love. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life proving you wrong. If recent events are any indication then I’m sure there will be a lot of bumps along the way. But as I stand here today, in front of our family and friends, I promise you that I will never give up on us. Again. Because you, Mazikeen, are my soul mate.
Mazes, on the other hand, are simple (and so appropriate): “Eve, I love you so fucking king.” And with that, they are married! We knew we loved this relationship from the start, but even we couldn’t have predicted how much after hearing those vows, seeing them talk about the wedding (and what’s in store for the honeymoon, like spikes and a ditch) and bounty hunting together.
A bomb on the future
Chloe might have known Rory’s half-angel, but she doesn’t see his red, pointy wings until her daughter uses one to kill a fly that was bothering her. As she admits to Amenadiel, she fears that Rory will feel obligated to protect herself because Chloe could not. (He thinks the wings sound “awesome” and wonders if Charlie’s would be this cool if his son got them because he refuses to accept that his son won’t develop something angelic.) He assures us that Rory will have a wonderful childhood because she has a wonderful mother.
Meanwhile, when Lucifer finds out that Rory said no to the wedding, he convinces her to go (who cares to explain who she is?) And offers to take her to her tailor. She refuses him but still opts for a costume – only so that he doesn’t show up because he’s busy helping Maze get Eve back. Rory then ignores Lucifer at the wedding, choosing to sit in the back rather than the others, and, after hearing that he and Chloe’s daughter, Trixie, are having game nights, runs away from the reception. . (Speaking of the reception, Chloe tells Lucifer that they need to talk about something, and she’s pregnant with Rory, isn’t she?)
Rory’s parents follow her down the hall and Lucifer tries to explain why he was MIA. But as she sees it, he always chooses someone or something else over her. That’s when she reveals she was so angry that she jumped in time because Chloe was dying and Lucifer wasn’t there. (Rory is older than she looks, she tells her mother, who worries when this happens.)
What does Ella know?
Ella and Detective Carol Corbett (Scott Porter) continue to be adorable, fearing that she has doubts that he is her wedding date when she is too focused on all she knows.
Yes, she was added to her board and in addition to finding out the truth about Lucifer and Amenadiel, she now knows Maze is a demon, Chloe probably knows it, Charlie is a half angel, Linda must know and Eve is the first lady. (She also wondered if Dan could have been a werewolf, vampire, or centaur, but crossed out all three.)
And after drinking just about every drink that crosses her path at the wedding and reception, is it any wonder that she lets it all out in front of all the (thankfully warned) guests? (Corbett cleans up after she spills him a glass.)
“I don’t agree.… I have to say something because I know the truth. I know Lucifer is the real devil, not like the most methodical actor ever. And Amenadiel is an angel, which makes Charlie a half angel, ”she said.“ Maze is a demon, and Eve is fine, Eve, cool. I kissed the first woman.
But while Chloe thinks she’s having a hard time processing everything, that’s not true. “I already believe in all of this,” says Ella. “But what I can’t believe is you’ve all kept it from me.” It breaks my heart that you thought so little of me, and I understand. I get it, I’m just regular Ella, how useful can I be in stopping the end of the world? It is then that she realizes that she knows something that others don’t. “Uh-oh, that can’t be good. “
Then Corbett comes back, wondering what he missed. (A lot.)
