Lucifer Season 2 Episode 15 Review: Deceptive Little Parasite

at . Comments

Yes, we got lots of feels this hour.

Lucifer and Trixie finally got to work together on Lucifer Season 2 Episode 15, and it was as delightful as we could ever hope, but the gold star belonged to Maze who saved Chloe from being eaten alive by a bunch of hoity toitys.

I'm Trixie - Lucifer Season 2 Episode 15

Maze is a flipping rock star. She may find listening to someone talk about their feelings nauseating, but when push comes to shove, she's there when you need her.

She's the friend everyone needs to have, and Chloe is one lucky gal.

Had Maze not shown up, Chloe would have crumpled up like an old pair of socks. Chloe couldn't even handle the judgmental look she got when she told the lady at the door she was all alone.

I don't know why Chloe was so embarrassed. If anything, the people at Starford should have been praising Chloe for being a single, working mom.

They should have been as excited about that as they were when they learned Trixie had two moms after Maze showed up. But I guess that's just a different kind of thing to be excited about.

Maze to the Rescue - Lucifer Season 2 Episode 15

No matter. Maze showing up was just what the doctor ordered. I could watch Maze slapping Chloe's butt all day just for the shocked look on Chloe's face.

It was the most hilarious moment of the hour.

The entire scene at the party was the absolute best. Yes, even better than when Lucifer and Trixie examined their father/daughter relationship.

Maze would make a great detective, and she's a much better partner for Choe than Lucifer.

Right now, Chloe is too wrapped up in her emotions about Lucifer to be able to work with him the way they used to before the big kiss.

They didn't spend a lot of time together on screen, and the hour seemed better for it.

Maze acted like she was the lead detective on the case, helping assuage Chloe's fears and insecurities so she could think straight about the case.

Maze was the one who gave her the answers to the questions she wasn't asking.

If it wasn't for Maze, Chloe wouldn't have gotten anything done. How could she be so daft?

I understand feeling intimidated by people you think are better than you, but it should have been a fleeting moment, especially after Maze pointed out everything wrong with all those pretentious people at the grieving gathering and what they might be hiding.

Despite that, Chloe still considered sending Trixie to the school which also didn't make any sense. The place was full of crap, and she wanted to go ahead and ask her daughter if she wanted to attend anyway?

Like I said, Chloe is daft.

Still, it was fun seeing Chloe and Maze work together, and I hope we see more of that soon.

Trixie worked her magic once again, this time with Lucifer at her side. 

Riding Together - Lucifer Season 2 Episode 15

Lucifer was trying to get in touch with his feelings so he could activate the Flaming Sword, sending his mom home. He mistakenly thought he could control his feelings, even laughing at Dr. Linda when she said it wasn't possible.

He recruited Trixie when he learned Starford had a class about feelings, conning Chloe into letting him drive the "Deceptive Little Parasite" to school because Trixie was running late, and Chloe needed to get to work.

I loved that Trixie made a deal with Lucifer for him to let her drive his car if she pretended he was her father. It was a very Trixie thing to do.

Aren't they just great together?

Lucifer didn't find what he was looking for at Starford, but he found if he delved into some of the emotions he was running from, he could activate the Flaming Sword, at least for a little bit.

My guess is that while he wants to send his mother away, he'd rather deal with her than with his painful feelings about Chloe which is why the Sword only flamed up for a short time. 

Had he let the tears flow, Charlotte would have been back behind the pearly gates.

Charlotte is Sad - Lucifer Season 2 Episode 15

So, what is the deal with Charlotte? Is she coming apart at the seams? Is what's happening to her the celestial form of dying?

Whatever it is, she'd better tell her sons, or it's only going to get worse.

"Deceptive Little Parasite" was one of the best episodes of Lucifer so far. (My favorite is still Lucifer Season 1 Episode 9, "A Priest Walks Into a Bar"). Teaming up Chloe and Maze was refreshing and funny, and Lucifer teaming up with Trixie was as adorable as expected.

What did you think of "Deceptive Little Parasite"? Which partnership did you enjoy more: Lucifer and Trixie or Maze and Chloe? Will Lucifer be able to save his mom? Will he want to?
