LUCIFER has long teased the developing romance between its two leads, Lucifer Morningstar and Chloe Decker. As things got heated in season four, some fans spotted a glaring blunder during a key Deckerstar moment.
Season five of the popular Fox series, now renewed by Netflix, was underway before filming was put on hold by the coronavirus pandemic. In the unexpected hiatus, Lucifer fans have been returning to some old favourites to mixed results. A rewatch of season four has caused debate among fans when a bizarre error was exposed.
The most recent season of the wildly popular fantasy drama devastated fans when Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) finally gave Deckerstar fans the kiss they have been waiting for.
Unfortunately, this also meant Lucifer was forced to leave his partner and love interest Chloe Decker (Lauren German) on Earth when he returned to Hell to keep Dromos’ demonic forces at bay.
Although the majority of season five had finished filming, the outbreak of COVID-19 has put production of the Warner Bros Television and Netflix series on hold just before production on the finale was due to start.
‘Lucifans’ are still unsure when the series will finally return, though it is hoped to be released on Netflix before the end of 2020.
Season four was a landmark instalment for the Biblical action drama, as it was the first slate of new episodes on the streaming service after being cancelled by Fox.
Not only that, but the latest ten episodes also featured some crucial moments for the developing romance between Lucifer and Chloe, as the hardened detective is forced to come to terms with the true identity of her potential lover.
Moreover, a chilling premonition seemed to confirm the pair would get together before Hell is once again unleashed onto the mortal plane.
Before the chaos with Father Kinley (Graham McTavish) and his apocalyptic prophecy gets underway, Lucifer and Chloe are up to their usual investigating.
In episode three, the duo are on the hunt for a killer who is taking out members of a gang known as Los X.
Just as Lucifer and Chloe are in the middle of a major confrontation regarding Lucifer’s true identity, fellow detective Dan (Kevin Alejandro) phones up with some crucial info; the killer is Oscar (Joseph Melendez), the victims’ former councillor.
When Lucifer goes to confront Oscar, he decides to keep Chloe out by bending the bars on his front door.
However, Lucifer’s unorthodox methods of locking Chloe out of the house became the subject of a debate when the image was posted to Reddit.
One fan asked fellow viewers how Lucifer’s decision to bend the bars would have actually kept Chloe outside, providing a visual aid alongside the post.
Equally baffled ‘Lucifans’ took to the comments to try and wrangle an explanation out of the confusing mishap.
Another fan replied: “Yeah, it’s funny, I had the same reaction, but! The top bar stops it from opening inward. The bottom bar stops it from opening towards Chloe.”
While one more suggested: “Watched it three times and only conclusion I arrived at is he can’t accurately assess human strength because he has super strength, so the lousy piece of wood preventing it opening outward seems inefficient to him and needs to reinforce it both directions just in case.”
It’s true that Chloe’s strength doesn’t compare to Lucifer’s celestial capabilities and would have a little more trouble getting past the makeshift barricade.
Despite this, many fans were stumped when a seasoned police detective who has demonstrated her abilities to open locked doors in the past wasn’t able to get through Lucifer’s feeble attempt at keeping her subdued.
Their conflict throughout this episode meant Lucifer decided to take some time away from Chloe, but perhaps their split wouldn’t have happened if the detective had simply kicked open the door.
Lucifer seasons 1-3 are available on Amazon Prime. Lucifer season 4 is available on Netflix.
