Lucifer is sad because he will never see Charlotte again. Chloe will someday because they will be reunited in heaven but Lucifer won’t go there. Dan is holding up as well as he can. Ella is still working the scene. She doesn’t have anything of consequence to share. Pierce shows up and assigns tasks. He sends Dan home to grieve and asks Lucifer about Amenadiel. Lucifer tells him that he thinks his brother got his wings back and took Charlotte to heaven.
Dan goes home and looks through Charlotte’s things. He finds the waffle iron and gets angry. He throws it and breaks a table. The files on it fall and when he picks them up he notices something. Pierce goes to see his minion. He’s still got Maze locked up at his place and he wants to keep it that way. She breaks the chains and takes out two goons but finds a room full of more when she tries to leave.
Chloe and Lucifer are going through Charlotte’s files when Dan comes in. He’s got a theory. Pierce is the Sinner Man. Lucifer tells them he knew but no one would listen. Ella interrupts their chat. Pierce is making a speech. It’s about getting justice. As he speaks, Chloe realizes that Dan was right. Pierce did it. They have to figure out how to catch Pierce. Ella found some DNA at the scene and they know it was Pierce framing someone that Charlotte was trying.
They go to see the guy and continue to tell him that they know he’s being framed. They find the murder weapon in his house, during a party where tons of people had access. This should be fun. Linda is just walking a patient out when a bloody Maze comes in. She makes sure the guy is not after Linda and then passes out.
Lucifer, Dan and Chloe are looking at all the party guests. They are all criminals and that is not who Pierce would use. The valet with the spotless record though? That’s more his style so they confront him and sure enough he owns up to it. He gives them a burner phone that was used for the drop. Dan gives it to Ella to run and tells her not tell anyone. She doesn’t listen and actually brings it to Pierce who promptly calls his minion to handle it.
Dan is asleep on his couch when Pierce’s guy comes in. Dude pulls a gun but before he shoots, Chloe turns up behind him with a gun on him and Dan was faking and his got his gun out too. Meanwhile, Lucifer confronts Pierce about his mark and his mission. Pierce is onto Lucifer too. He knows that he wants to help people. Pierce yells and officers come in to take Lucifer away. He goes back to Lux and Ella, Dan and Chloe are there.
The minion is with them as well. Ella gave Pierce the phone on purpose. It was a setup. She believes them and now they don’t know what to do. Chloe calls Pierce and plays dumb. He sees through her though. He knows they are all working against him now. He gets home and finds all his goons down and Maze in the wind. She and Linda reconcile. Lucifer and Ella have a heart to heart about his father and Pierce.
Inside, Chloe and Dan are trying to get the minion to talk. He won’t. Dan has Chloe leave the room and then he gets serious about threatening the guy. Dude is willing to talk if they can prove they have the means to protect his sister. Dan is willing to do that. Lucifer and Chloe go to get the sister while Dan and Ella stay with guy. Chloe talks to Lucifer about his truth and his devilish ways. She doesn’t see him like that and lately he doesn’t seem himself that way either.
Ella called in a favor and ran the minion’s prints. He’s an only child. It’s a trap. Chloe realizes it moments too late. Pierce and his goons are there with guns. Pierce wants to take down Lucifer but Chloe stays in front of him and won’t move. She and Pierce exchange fire and she goes down hard. Lucifer catches her and wraps his wings around her. Pierce orders his goons to finish her and they open fire.
Lucifer manages to take off and get her safely to a rooftop. She was wearing a vest so she’s okay. They just need to get Pierce so Lucifer goes back for him. Chloe gets a call from Dan about the trap and she tells him she knows. She’s starting to put the pieces together. Lucifer took Chloe far enough away that bullets don’t work. Pierce came prepared though. He has Maze’s demon blade. They fight but Lucifer wins. He stabs Pierce with the blade.
As he takes his last breaths, Pierce talks about having no regrets and making it into heaven but Lucifer points out what happened to Charlotte. He’s going to hell for it. He’s a monster and he will spend eternity remembering that. He’s not the only one though. Lucifer is a monster too, Pierce taunts as Lucifer’s devil face flickers. Pierce dies just as Chloe comes in. Lucifer turns around and is full devil. She is shocked to see that “it’s all true.”
This is how they end it? That sucks. At least do it like Frequency and give them a five minute wrap up online. Seal it off with a little bow. I’m glad that Maze and Linda made amends. That was good but having the show end on this note sucks. I know why they did it and I don’t blame the show runners but it still sucks. I’m glad Chloe knows though.
