#TWBT: Let’s Talk About Lucifer, Det. Decker & Lt. Pierce

Top: Lucifer & Chloe, Bottom: Pierce & Chloe. Team Lucifer all the way.

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not caught up on season 3 of Lucifer on FOX, please do not blame me for spoiling anything if you choose to read this post.

I’ve put off writing this for several days after trying to recuperate from watching the preview for next week’s episode of Lucifer titled “Anything Pierce Can Do I Can Do Better.” It flashed before me on the TV screen immediately at the end of this Monday’s episode “Angel of San Bernadino,” leaving me little time to process what Lt. Pierce is about to do and how Chloe might respond.

So yeah, this whole love triangle between Lucifer Morningstar, Detective Chloe Decker and Lt. Marcus Pierce is driving me nuts.

The fact that I’d prefer Lucifer and Chloe be together aside, everything about the romantic content in the last couple of episodes is completely and utterly cruel.

Let’s start off with the sad reality that Chloe is a pawn in this triangle. Lucifer’s father (aka God) put Chloe on earth with the help of Lucifer’s brother, the angel Amenadiel, as an answer to the Decker family’s prayers for a child long ago.

Lovely. That’s perfectly wonderful. I love stories about miracle children. But then Lucifer had to go live in Los Angeles after leaving hell and end up working alongside miracle Chloe Decker at the LAPD. Which would also be fine, however, he also winds up falling for her. Of course, Lucifer thinks this desire to be with Chloe is his father’s way of punishing him.

Both Chloe and Lucifer are stubborn enough to tip toe around this romantic tension.

Fast forward to season 3. Now we have an immortal human lieutenant at the LAPD, Marcus Pierce, (aka CAIN, yes, you read the name correctly) who figures with Lucifer that he might be able to finally die if a human can fall in love with him.

Insert Chloe Decker.

THE CRUELTY.

As soon as Lucifer decides to back off and give Chloe some space, Pierce swoops in. The evil demon Maze helps, making my skin crawl even more. Chloe almost says the three words, but Pierce stops her, unable to go through with it. Doesn’t matter though, because his mark of immortality disappears AND HE’S STILL ALIVE.

If I hadn’t seen the preview for next week’s episode, I’d be all “This damn Pierce better not even try pursuing Chloe again as a mortal being.” But I’m not. I’m wallowing in sadness because I’VE SEEN INTENSE EVIDENCE OF HIM DOING SO.

Pierce was willing to make Chloe suffer to get what he wanted, so I don’t care what he tries to do to redeem himself at this point. It’s not going to win me over.

I guess I can only hope it won’t win Chloe over either. Lucifer needs to snap out of it and be real with Chloe.

If only Chloe would believe anything Lucifer says about actually being the devil, maybe we’d get somewhere with this.

Meanwhile, mood:

I walked passed Shindo USA in the Garment District of NYC today, and I came across this amazing fox by Ribbonesia made out of ribbon.

I can’t imagine how much patience it takes to make something like this, but it’s gorgeous!

I’m not sure if Shindo USA added the green tie to this fox, but it surely is a nice touch.

Fan Art Fridays: Lucifer

Lucifer‘s mid season finale was this week, and I can’t handle the fact that the show won’t be back until the middle of January 2017!

How could FOX do this to us?

Until then, let’s reminisce with this piece of fan art I found of Lucifer and Det. Decker on Deviant Art. It’s by La Mora and features the two in a warm embrace.

I can’t wait to see season 2B!

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Det. Chloe Decker in ‘Lucifer’ Episode “St. Lucifer”

Detective Decker, Lucifer Episode -St. Lucifer-

Monday’s episode of Lucifer on FOX was pretty intense, huh?

I love seeing Detective Chloe Decker (played by Lauren German) in her serious work attire, but it was such a breath of fresh air when she arrived at the charity event in the episode “St. Lucifer” wearing some festive clothing!

She paired a black sequined crop top with a long red midi skirt, adding some red lipstick and wearing her blonde hair in curls. Despite the fact that she looked really Christmas-y, I definitely give her 10/10 for this look. She looked so reserved, as she wasn’t showing much skin, yet so dazzling with the sequins.

Below are some similar items for you to copy this look. Be sure to catch Lucifer on Mondays at 9/8c on FOX!

Episode Review: ‘The Mindy Project’ Season 2 Premiere (2×1) “All My Problems Solved Forever…”

mindy project

I don’t know how I survived for so long without my weekly dose of Dr. Mindy Lahiri.

The season 2 premiere of FOX’s The Mindy Project was full of awkward and hilarious moments. Just the way I like it!

The episode begins with a proposal by none other than our favorite New York City pastor, Casey.

Of course, right before the proposal, Mindy begins to realize there are ants in the tree they’re sitting in.

“Not exactly the segway I was looking for…,” Casey says as he digs for the ring and Mindy picks at the ants.

After he pulls out the ring Mindy gasps, saying, “Are you kidding?! I need to Vine this!”

Mind you they’re sitting in a tree in the middle of nowhere in Haiti.

That’s Mindy for ya.

This episode’s pleasant surprise was special guest James Franco, or, as they would call him at the practice, Dr. Paul Leotard.

James Franco as OBGYN Dr. Paul Leotard

Besides taking over Mindy’s position as OBGYN while she was away in Haiti, he also added something else to his job description:

Sex Therapist.

Need I say more?

I shall.

Dr. Castellano and his ex-wife seek sex therapy from Dr. Leotard in this episode.

Let’s just say it ended in a public announcement of Danny Castellano’s porn addiction and a laptop broken in half.

Yeah.

Other episode highlights include:

1. Dr. Jeremy Reed’s weight gain. The British bloke kept stealing the peanut butter bars from Mindy’s care packages. Needless to say, it all went to his stomach.

2. Mindy’s hair. It’s still short. I don’t like it. I’m glad they’re postponing the wedding so that it has time to grow in a bit.

3. When Casey accidentally pees on Mindy’s wedding dress. You’ll just have to see what happens after that yourself.

4. When Casey says to Mindy after she’s already halfway down the aisle, “I don’t want to marry you anymore.” Heart attacks. Heart attacks everywhere.

5. When Dr. Leotard (James Franco) sneaks up on Mindy. How does he tread so lightly? “I’m part Cherokee,” he says. Okay, then.

6. When Mindy decides not to go back to Haiti with Casey, and both Mindy and Dr. Leotard ask each other “Well, where you gonna work?”

I cannot wait to see what shenanigans Mindy will get herself into for next week’s episode!

RIP Cory Monteith: 1982-2013

May 11, 1982 – July 13, 2013

I still can’t get over the shock.

This morning I was mindlessly scrolling through my Instagram feed when I stopped on a collage of photos from peoplemag. The photos were of Glee star Cory Monteith. I read the description to learn that they were posted in memory of him.

What? Cory Monteith is no longer with us? No. This can’t be happening, I said to myself.

I couldn’t believe it. I thought it was some sort of sick joke until I googled it. The reality started to sink in for sure when I saw #RIPCoryMonteith and #PrayforLea trending on Twitter. The top photos on the pray for Lea hashtag are tear inducing.

Lea Michele and Cory Monteith had been dating since early 2012.

I can only imagine the pain his parents and Lea Michele are experiencing at the time.

Monteith was found dead in a hotel room at Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel on Saturday, July 13th.

He was supposed to check out of the hotel yesterday. After staff noticed he hadn’t, they went to his room to check on him. By then it was too late. Paramedics pronounced him dead.

Reports state he was alone when he died. His autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

UPDATE: (7/16) Monteith died of a toxic mixture of heroin and alcohol, British Columbia Coroners Service says.

Cory Monteith was only 31 years old.

Incredibly sad. He still had so much ahead of him.

The Canadian actor struggled with drug abuse and had checked into rehab back in March of this year. He completed his treatments in April and was reunited with his costar and girlfriend Lea Michele soon after.

Couple both on and off screen: Cory Monteith and Lea Michele

Glee fans all over the world are grieving the loss of this awesome actor.

A statement was released early this morning on the Glee Facebook page:

Statement on behalf of: GLEE Executive Producers, 20th Century Fox Television and FOX Broadcasting Company.

We are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Cory was an exceptional talent and an even more exceptional person. He was a true joy to work with and we will all miss him tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.

Lea Michele’s rep asks that we give her some privacy during this time.

In midst of all this, we remember that Finn Hudson, Monteith’s character on Glee, never wanted us to stop believing.

RIP CM

You will be missed, Cory Allan Michael Monteith. Rest in peace.
