**Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own.**
After a second season filled with plenty of twists, turns, emotions, and laughter, Lucifer is out on DVD!
The sophomore season of the DC/Vertigo series continued to add to the show’s mythology, giving more insight and depth to most of their characters. Fans got to see another side to Maze as she grew beyond just her demonic side as Lucifer began to learn a few things about himself (though the latter’s choices at certain points were somewhat questionable). Perhaps one of the bigger arcs of the season was meeting Lucifer’s and Amenadiel’s mother (and the body she inhabited). Charlotte brought her fair share of trouble and heartache throughout the season, with a season-ending story that felt absolutely right.
The DVD offered another chance to rewatch the season in its entirety as well as unaired scenes, a gag reel and a look at the “reinvention” of Lucifer. The deleted scenes are always interesting to watch and see if they add anything to the scenes they were attached to.
In Lucifer’s case, there were a few deleted scenes that felt like viewers lost something with it being cut. The one example that immediately came to mind is the scene between Maze and Amenadiel as she talked to him about her upbringing and her life before she met Lucifer. The emotion may have come through in other scenes of the episode (“God Johnson”), but there was just something about the heartbreaking insight and Maze’s response that would have been great to see.
The gag reel was fun, and much like every other gag reel, fans will probably wish there was more of it.
While other DCTV shows also include their San Diego Comic-Con panels, Lucifer featured a fun look at “Reinventing Lucifer,” offering insight into Lucifer’s choice of city to live in and what aspects of Los Angeles comes through and parallels the titular character has with the city.
So before starting the third season and figuring out what exactly happened to Lucifer, treat yourself to a season 2 rewatch with the DVD out now!
Lucifer returns for season three Monday, October 2 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
