After last week’s near miss with Chloe’s (Lauren German) suspicions about Lucifer (Tom Ellis) actually being the devil, audiences seem to be right back to the start with the return of Detective Decker’s skepticism in Monday’s (Feb. 22) episode, titled, “Sweet Kicks.”

Now that she’s seen Lucifer bleed like any other mortal, Chloe seems convinced that he’s just a nut job with a Satan fixation. Lucifer, however, is convinced that danger is ten times more exciting when it’s actually dangerous, much to Maze’s frustration.

After nearly getting shot and trampled at a fashion show, Lucifer pays a visit to Chloe’s boss, inserting himself into the investigation of a young girl who was killed at the show. He works his desirous magic yet again and swings himself a consistent consulting deal on all of Chloe’s cases.

Finally, we get some explanation for how the show plans to sustain this new detective duo. With both Chloe and her ex-husband being against Lucifer’s help, it was getting harder and harder to believe that even the devil could talk himself onto every single case.

To counter that contrived feeling, we’ve now got Lieutenant Monroe’s (Dawn Olivieri) deal, which provides a much more believable excuse to Lucifer’s weekly consults.

Meanwhile, Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and Amenadiel (D.B Woodside) make of deal of their own so they can both get what they want: Lucifer back in hell.

After admitting that Lucifer no long confides in her, making her a bad source, Maze reveals to Amenadiel that Lucifer has been seeing a therapist. If his best friend/minion can’t deliver a weakness for Amenadiel to exploit, then maybe the devil’s confidant could shed some light on the subject.

Surprisingly enough the angel in this situation has less than purest intentions, while the demon is only looking out for Lucifer. You know what they say about intentions and the road to hell though. Something tells us Lucifer won’t be too enthused to hear that Maze has gotten into bed with his enemy (strictly metaphorically speaking on that one for now unfortunately).

“Lucifer” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX
