LUCIFER will return this August and fans have been hyping the new season after the release of an exciting teaser trailer. Some clues may have spoiled the fate of new villain, Michael.
Season five of Netflix’s acclaimed fantasy series has revealed the introduction of Lucifer’s deceitful twin brother, Michael. Fans of the original Fox series have been dissecting the recent trailer frame-by-frame and may have confirmed how the new foe will depart the series.
Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) shocked his true love Chloe (Lauren German) and long-time fans alike when he returned to the underworld.
Following the events of the explosive season four finale, fans are desperate to discover how Lucifer will escape his new eternal prison.
A recent teaser trailer has revealed Chloe, Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) will come face-to-face with the devil sooner than expected.
However, new character Michael may look just like Tom Ellis, but is soon exposed as Lucifer’s nefarious and slightly older twin brother.
Michael attempts to muscle in on Lucifer’s territory, including starting a steamy affair with his brother’s newly admitted first love, Chloe.
As Lucifer wrestles with his dark side in Hell, his friends and family will have to deal with their most personal threat yet in the first half of season five.
Ahead of the new release on August 21, fans have been trawling through the new trailer to propose what lies ahead.
One subtle clue has caught viewers’ attention, with some convinced Michael will eventually be shot in season five.
They took to Reddit to discuss a pivotal frame in the first trailer for Lucifer season five.
Redditor babi134666 posted: “The crazy thing here is that in the moment when Michael vanishes after talking to his brother, I tried to pause it right before he did and I noticed this.
“There are two bullet wounds on his chest. WTF, now I’m confused.”
With the new trailer suggesting Lucifer will be trapped in Hell for some time, it is likely that Michael eventually joins Chloe on at least one of her cases.
However, this moment has caused suspicion amongst fans as Lucifer is the only one left vulnerable by close proximity to Chloe.
Some fans have proposed Michael is actually Lucifer in disguise, pretending to be his brother for an unknown end.
Another viewer had another idea and suggested Michael isn’t at all who he appears to be.
They said: “As I said in another thread I think Michael is a shapeshifter.”
While one more fan added: “You know if that’s true it might explain why Maze is fighting Amenadiel in that one scene. I’d prefer that to her aligning herself with Michael or something.”
Michael may still be Lucifer’s brother, but his predicted ability to shapeshift would certainly clear up a lot of ambiguous moments in the new trailer.
Moreover, Michael could even be an entirely different threat altogether and could be changing his shape throughout the first half of season five to mess with Lucifer’s friends.
