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

chloe pierce lucifer love triangle

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:

October Favorites: Obamas Moving to UES & Rihanna Drive

The cold wasted no time making an appearance at the end of October. Like, I know I was complaining that it was still summer during the first few days of fall, but jeez!

Anyway, the month of October 2017 had a mix of fun music and pop culture news coupled with a few terrible events. Monthly Favorites on The Whisper Box only focuses on the former, so let’s leave all the bad stuff behind.

Here are my favorites for the month of October!

Favorite News Articles

1. The Obamas might be moving to NYC’s Upper East Side. They say third time’s the charm, and this is the second report stating they may end up living in NYC…

2. Barbados is naming a street after Rihanna. I bet she’s gonna rev up her engine and cruise on down Rihanna Drive blasting “Drive” because, why not?

3. Balenciaga’s platform heel crocks. What is fashion anymore?

4. This woman checked her horse in at a Kentucky hotel. Was no one concerned that the horse might accidentally cause damages to the room?!

5. Lupita Nyong’o’s NYT piece on Harvey Weinstein. I’m glad spoke up about this, even if she was able to avoid this disgusting bastard’s advances. He got what he deserved 10 times over.

Favorite Music
1. “No Captain” by Lane 8 ft. POLIÇA. Something happened to my heart when I heard this song for the first time.

2. “Should I” by Phoebe Ryan. Loving the Motown vibe mixed with ’80s electropop on this track! Continue reading

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Ella Lopez in ‘Lucifer’ Episode “Vegas With Some Radish”

Ella Lopez, Lucifer, “Vegas With Some Radish” fashionAs if this weeks episode of FOX’s Lucifer, “Vegas With Some Radish,” wasn’t amazing enough, LAPD forensic scientist Ella Lopez wore the most incredible outfit during the casino scenes!

This outfit plus all the craziness in this episode are making “Vegas With Some Radish” one of my favorite Lucifer episodes to date.

Ella came down the escalator at the casino to meet Lucifer wearing a black and gold strapless dress that basically screams VEGAS. She paired the look with a cute gold clutch and wore her hair swept to the side.

This was a very exciting change of scene, I must say!

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!
