Let the fun begin... off to watch S6E1.
That's cute. 1st episode:
Linda: *"This is what I do" face*
Amenadiel: *clap* *clap*
S2: Nifty theater...Recognized it even without seeing the marquee. Except it's in Glendale's jurisdiction, not LAPD's.

Yeah, lot of screen time for Linda in the first two. And she's so good as her character. I always love how Lucifer will say something in their "sessions", totally misunderstand her, make a conclusion that's 180 degrees from what she was leading him to, and walk out with a new approach. And Linda's always "No, that's not what I meant".
I was watching some documentary the other day, no idea now what it was, and I saw the Lux building in real life. "Hey, that's Lucifer's place".
Yeah, it's a real building, but the top penthouse/spire is CGIed in.
Sunset Tower, Los Angeles.
I liked the season overall. I don't see why, in the end, Lucifer couldn't come up all the time. He only had to avoid one person; who wouldn't even remember him for the first couple of years (plus the 9 months pregnancy).
At worst, he could've remained in touch with videos and pics for all of Rory's life (birthdays, first step, first day of school...etc.). SHE would've missed him, but all others didn't have to.
This. Amendadiel ended up with the big job and he still managed to make time for Charlie.
Plus, why didn't Rory just check out Heaven and Hell when she first became an angel? They both seem like obvious places to look and she would have found Lucifer immediately.
I recognized Linda's ex from his previous episode, but I couldn't figure out if the woman on the couch with him was supposed to be someone we'd met before or if she was just some random person trying to get out of her hell loop.
The toon episode was awesome.
They explicitly set up AmeneGod's role as delegable. Lucifer's "guide people on the path" required Lucifer's unique point-of-view. Sure, he could take a break on occasion, but "it's in the script".
They also could have gone to go pick up Amenediel and used his time-stop ability (did he get that back?) to rescue Rory. But again, "it's in the script."
Oh yeah, that was another thing that was annoying. Why go save Rory alone?
Heck, why is Chloe's death a traumatic event for Rory? even Rory said it was no big deal because death isn't an issue for an angel!
I don't recall Linda and AmeneGod breaking up, so I thought it was strange that Linda was with that bartender.
In the end, Dan got a much better deal than Chloe...
Story-wise, that subplot was about the Morningstar family growth, so not having the extended family around makes sense for character development.
But it made the practical side seem silly. Almost Spaceball-ish "Evil will always win because good is dumb".
I thought it was an excellent finish. Both the season and the finale. Very moving. Writers & actors did a great job at plucking at my heartstrings.
My only nit is the same mentioned above. Lucifer has always been able to go back & forth. They could have given us a better explanation than "you can't come back". But it didn't detract from the emotional roller coaster they sent me on.
Damn, I'm gonna miss this show.
But I sure did enjoy the ride.

The reason he couldn't go back is because he gave Rory his word that he would change absolutely nothing. However, not a big fan of thinking about Chloe on earth for 60 or so years without anyone in her life but her kids. Her love for Lucifer was so great she was no longer even remotely interested in having any kind of male companion? That really sucks for her.
Well, that was the way the writers thought they cleverly "fixed it". But he promised to change nothing in how she grew up, which could've easily been achieved by everyone pretending. He could've met with Chloe for hours each day (for male "companionship") without Rory knowing anything about it. Chloe could've supplied him with videos of birthdays, Christmases, etc. so he would've known all about Rory's life.
Basically, he only needed to be out of Rory's life and for everyone else to pretend that he's not around.
I watched all 10 episodes between Saturday afternoon and yesterday. I cried ALOT during episode 9 (scenes with Dan and Trixie) and episode 10. It really upset me that they spent so many years apart for (in my mind) no good reason. It has already been said here but if Amenadiel could be there for Charlie, Lucifer could have been there. Hated that so much. Until I saw episode 10, I was considering a rewatch of all seasons when it was over but I won't be doing that now. Very disappointed.
Finished it this afternoon. Really enjoyed it. Thought the finale was very fitting. As Chloe said to Rory, I wouldn't change a thing.
