The popular Biblical drama loosely based on Neil Gaiman’s comic book creations follows the unlikely adventures of Lucifer Morningstar after his vacation to Earth is side-tracked by police cases, unwanted visitors and a touch of romance.
Series regulars in the past have included Lucifer’s mother, Goddess, who possesses the mortal body of Charlotte Richards (Tricia Helfer in season two).
However, the series still has a whole religious text of Biblical mythology to pull from, and some fans have some intriguing theories regarding angels and demons who could make an appearance in season five.
Among them is Lilith, the mother of Lucifer’s most loyal demon friend Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt), who has yet to appear on the show despite being discussed multiple times.
Maze’s parental background is confirmed in a heart-to-heart with Lucifer during season four, where she reveals Lilith wasn’t much of a mother during her childhood.
Lilith was also confirmed to be the first wife of God’s first man, Adam, as Eve (Inbar Lavi) confirmed: “Our entire marriage he was just pining over wife number uno – Lilith tamed the beasts of the night, stupid perfect Lilith.”
After being referenced so much in season four, many viewers are convinced Lilith will finally make an appearance in the upcoming fifth instalment of Lucifer.
Some fans took to Reddit to discuss Lilith’s potential role as season five’s antagonist.
“Plus in many storylines about the devil, Lilith is never too far away so I feel like it’s inevitable for her to make an appearance at some point in the show.”
A version of the same character has a major role in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, where she is also referred to as Madame Satan and played by former Doctor Who star Michelle Gomez.
Although Lucifer’s iteration of the mistress of Hell would most likely be played by a different actress, Tom Ellis’ recent cameo on The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths confirms the series isn’t averse to crossovers.
Given the Biblical Lilith is also depicted as a wife of Satan, fans have wondered if she and Chloe Decker (Lauren German) could be fighting for Lucifer’s affections in season five.
