In a twist fans didn’t see coming, Pete turned out to be the serial killer the LAPD and his girlfriend Ella Lopez (played by Aimee Garcia) were hunting. Here’s everything you need to know about Pete Daily star, Alexander Koch.

Will Alexander Koch return in Lucifer season 5, part 2?
In Lucifer, Koch plays Pete Daily, an LA-based reporter who is reporting on one of Chloe (Lauren German) and Lucifer’s (Tom Ellis) cases. However, in the end, he turned out to be the psychopathic killer, known as Lillyman.
At the moment, there has been no official announcement whether Alex Koch will return as Pete Daily in Lucifer season five, part two. At the end of season five, part one, Pete was still alive, so it is possible fans will see the return of Pete.
