A human steals Azrael‘s blade and Lucifer Morningstar links the theft to a rash of violent murders in Lucifer season 2 episode 8. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 7.
Lucifer season 2 episode 8 opens on a woman named Maddie Howard who’s biking when she’s abruptly chased by a man in a hood. He follows her to an alley and stabs her repeatedly.
When Lucifer looks at crime scene photos of Maddie’s death, he recognizes the blade. When he finds the spot where he buried Uriel, he confirms that the blade is missing.
Lucifer and Amenadiel explain to Maze that in human hands, Azrael’s blade wants to kill. It will take any reason a human might be mad at someone and accentuate it. Amenadiel says the knife will pass from human to human and leave an unimaginable trail of death in its wake.
Lucifer has Ella Lopez investigate the scene around Uriel’s grave. She tells him that she found a piece of paper containing the business logo of a law firm. Lucifer recognizes it as the logo of the law firm where his mother Charlotte works. He drops by to confront her.
She admits to telling people about the blade. He asks her why she’d realize it onto the world. She says, “Because I wanted to get your father’s attention.” She says that after Uriel’s death she wanted to mourn with him.
Lucifer suspects a man named Duncan Watts. When he and Chloe Decker arrive at the yoga studio where they believe him to be, they find him dead, along with an entire yoga class.
Police check out the scene, but there’s no sign of the murder weapon. Lucifer says he thinks the weapon was passed from one person to the next “like a murderous hot potato.” Ella confirms that’s what most likely happened.
Later, Ella confronts Lucifer at The Lux. She tells him that Duncan Watts’ footprint matched the ones at Uriel’s grave, so she knows the case is related to the favor Lucifer asked her for. She tells him to start talking.
She tells him, “All I can tell you is I’m dealing with a matter of cosmic importance and I need you to indulge me a little longer.” She decides to have faith in him and hugs him.
Lucifer arrives at the next murder scene and can’t locate the murder weapon. He looks around and realizes Dan Espinoza has it. He approaches Dan cautiously. Dan holds Azrael’s blade out towards Lucifer and says, “You ruined my marriage.”
Dan starts swinging the blade at Lucifer. Lucifer tries to convince him to put the knife down. Dan says, “My entire life imploded because of you!” He adds, “I know you ate my pudding!”
Charlotte and Amenadiel talk to Lucifer about going home to heaven. He says that Earth is his home and reveals to Charlotte that he has Azrael’s blade in his possession. She backs of and leaves Lucifer’s apartment along with Amenadiel.
