109 A Priest Walks into a Bar | 3.21.16 | Recap by Lori Carpenter for Chicago Sci-Fi Media Group
Lucifer makes a pizza delivery boy’s dreams come true when he invites him into one of his private parties. And though the three Brittany’s invite Lucifer to join them, he doesn’t. Confused by his lack of enthusiasm Lucifer confides in Linda, who thinks he is lonely.
When Lucifer returns to Lux, he is surprised to find Father Frank waiting to talk to him. A man named Arietta is fronting a drug ring out of the youth center and the priest is concerned for his pupils, especially a young man named Connor, and asks for Lucifer’s help. Lucifer turns him down, though is hoping to bring down a priest.
When Chloe and Lucifer go to the youth center to talk to Arietta, they find him beaten to death in his office and a voice modulator not far from the body. They talk to Doyle, the director, and also to Connor. They find out that Father Frank is obsessed with keeping Connor safe, and was at the center that morning arguing with Arietta.
Next stop is going to see Father Frank. When Chloe and Lucifer confront the priest, he admits to being at the center and to even punching Arietta, but he had nothing to do with his death. As the threesome leave the church, a black SUV races around the corner and shoots at them. No one is injured, but Chloe does get a partial license plate number and has it traced. When asked again, Father Frank admits to getting threatening messages via the voice modulator.
Back at the station, Malcolm informs Dan that he is back on active duty and that they’re going to be partners. Malcolm blackmails Dan into retrieving a gun from evidence for him, which Dan does. Later, Amenidel confronts Malcolm. The angel reminds Malcolm he was saved from hell for a reason, and to hurry up with Amendiel’s demands.
Since the church isn’t safe for Father Frank, Lucifer brings him to Lux. The priest tells Chloe and Lucifer he wasn’t always a man of the cloth and it wasn’t until he was in a car accident with Connor and his family—where both Connor’s parents and his own daughter where killed—that he found God. Chloe leaves Lucifer with Father Frank, and they begin to bond while playing the piano. When Chloe returns, she is amused to find the two and informs them she has a lead on the Spider. The lead takes them to a drug deal where Connor fires a gun into the air causing the crowd to scatter.
Father Frank has disappeared, but Maz overheard him talking to Connor. Chloe and Lucifer return to the church to find Connor holding a gun to Father Frank with Doyle encouraging him to shoot. Connor can’t do it, so Doyle shoots at him, but Father Frank jumps in front of the bullet, and Chloe shoots Doyle.
Lucifer rushes to Father Frank and presses his jacket to the wound. The Father tells Lucifer “his father has a plan for him,” then dies in Lucifer’s arms. Enraged that his friend was taken from him Lucifer turns to Doyle grabbing him by the neck and choking him. Chloe stops him by saying that is not what Father Frank would have wanted. When the police arrive, Connor tells them everything and the case is closed.
Later that night, Lucifer yells at his father wanting to know what it takes to make him happy since Father Frank did everything he could.
At Chloe’s house, Dan and Chloe have dinner but neither is in the mood and they decide to postpone.
Chloe goes to see Lucifer knowing he needs a friend.
Malcolm is gorging himself on food when Amendiel appears to him again. Malcolm shows Amendiel the gun asking whom he wants him to kill. Amendiel tells him Lucifer Morningstar.
