Well, if you thought this show had done every possible story with Lucifer, you could not have been more wrong. Not only did the mid-season finale feature Lucifer as POTUS, but it also featured … the spawn of Lucifer? Let’s get into it.
On his never-ending quest to find power and adoration, Lucifer continues his search for the perfect vessel, making stops in powerful CEOs, and archbishops, before eventually, he finds himself a new temporary home in the president. It seems President Jeff over here thinks that he and Lucifer are going to be “partners” in this journey to better humanity or whatever nonsense Lucifer promised him to get him to say yes. But none of that really matters because at the end of the day, Jeff says yes, and the madness begins.
While C-squared and the Winchesters work to track Lucifer’s whereabouts, the devil himself is busy leading the White House staff in morning prayer. Thankfully, none of them notice the fact that the Bible is literally burning the president’s hand. Instead, they take his awkward prayer — and his nuclear warfare jokes —in stride considering that he just became the most popular sitting president in modern history. So, what does Jeff do that’s so lovable? He’s a widower who’s currently sleeping with Kelly, a member of his staff!
And for Lucifer, that means he gets to have sex for the first time … ever. The moment Kelly mentions wanting kids with him and he grins, you know something bad is going to happen.
Back at the bunker Dean powers down the wardings so that Crowley can enter with an update (and this amazing interaction):
Sam: Crowley, could we just get the damn news without the drama?
Crowley: Can I get you without the flannel? No. Still, I endure.
Crowley then delivers the news that Lucifer is, in fact, LOTUS, a revelation that leads Sam to call Mick Davies from the British Men of Letters, but the youngest Winchester hangs up before he says anything. For now, the team is headed to Indianapolis, where the president is doing a bit of fundraising. Crowley agrees to meet them there once he picks up Rowena. And by picking up Rowena I mean showing up just as her “latest fiancé” is leaving her for a woman with more money and literally exploding him. As Rowena tells her son (with blood all over her face): “That is the sweetest thing you’ve ever done for me.” Talk about a twisted family dynamic.
Meanwhile, Lucy is loving his new life. As commander-in-chief, he updates Rick, the head of his secret service security detail, about “two mentally unstable individuals, possibly cult members” who have plans to assassinate him because they believe he’s quite literally Satan. Lucifer then tells Rick to find and kill those two men while he spends another night with Kelly. Only this time, something’s different.
Before they head out for Indianapolis, Castiel’s vision starts to blur as angel radio becomes overwhelmed with voices. They’re experiencing a massive surge in celestial energy. Instantly, Castiel knows: Someone has created the offspring of an angel and a human — an act that takes such immense power it has to be Lucifer. Dean’s perfect reaction to this devastating, larger-than-life news? “I didn’t know he was dating.”
So, with that, they have a new mission: As Dean puts it, “Impeach LOTUS and find Rosemary’s baby.” The only problem? Rick and his secret service team easily locate the boys and their Impala and cut their road trip short. At least until Mr. Ketch finally makes his introduction — and unlike Dean, he actually gets to use a grenade launcher.
