Titled “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam,” the episode shows how God causes everyone to sing.
Madrid, June 7 (Europa Press) .- The second episode of the second part of the fifth season from Lucifer has already become one of the most emblematic of the series of Netflix. The fans were looking forward to it since they could see a short preview video of this special musical chapter in the DC FanDome. Tom Ellis’s The Devil shows off his dancing and singing skills with a unique delivery.
Titled “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam,” the episode shows how God causes everyone to sing. As Lucifer struggles with his father on Earth, there are several moments when the characters begin to sing, specifically to reflect what he is feeling emotionally.
And, of course, for this, the creators have taken the opportunity to create a special tracklist with the themes that are what give the episode that unique touch.
1.- CHRIS ISAAK – WICKED GAME
After what happened in the previous episode, entitled “Family Dinner”, this chapter begins with Lucifer, visibly moved, playing the piano on the song “Wicked Game”. An ideal song for the situation that the fallen angel lives, as it tells a love story that, in the long term, will bring problems, like those of Lucifer and Chloe.
2.- QUEEN – ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST
When Lucifer teams up with Chloe and Ella to investigate the case of a murdered referee, he begins to notice that something is wrong. When Ella begins to dance, everyone in the field follows her and they sing “Another One Bites the Dust”, due to the death of the referee. In fact, this sequence has a surreal moment, when the victim herself sings before being dead again.
3.- THE POLICE – EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE
Lucifer and Chloe interrogate a student, JJ, who sent a threatening email to the murdered referee. The young man’s mother declares that he is an impossible boy, without any future because he does not know what he wants to do with his life. When Lucifer asks him what his future plans are, he and his mother sing “Every Breath You Take” by The Police.
4.- MIX DE BAD TO THE BONE Y NO SCRUBS
As Ella struggles to avoid looking at bad men, Mazikeen wants her to accept him. This is where two different songs are sung, George Thorogood & The Destroyers’ “Bad to the Bone” is sung by Maze, while Ella sings TLC’s’ No Scrubs’. Both songs narrate the different approaches they see on the sentimental life of women.
5.- FINGER POPPIN’ WALLERS – HELL
After Dan meets Lucifer’s father and discovers that he had slept with God’s ex-wife, the detective is overwhelmed. He comes to think that this means that he will go to hell, so both he and the entire LUX bar begin to interpret “Hell” by Finger Poppin ‘Wallers.
6.- GROVER WASHINGTON JR. – JUST THE TWO OF US
Linda and Amenadiel began to ponder the possibility that Charlie was not an angelic baby after all. This takes them for a walk in the park, kicking off the song “Just the Two of Us,” by Grover Washington Jr.
7.- NAT KING COLE – SMILE
Towards the end of the musical, God tries to get closer to Chloe, causing Trixie to sing “Smile,” the best known version of which is Nat King Cole. On the other hand, his mother reflects on the current situation with Lucifer. Despite wanting to try, God can’t go ahead and walks away.
8.- LOS MISERABLES – I DREAM A DREAM
The musical concludes with Lucifer and God having a completely candid conversation, with the former expressing his anger at the way his father treated him. This leads them to sing “I Dreamed a Dream”, from the musical The Miserables.
