Scene 2 - Lucifer Gets Pulled Over
1 EXT. CITY OF ANGELS - SUNSET BLVD - NIGHT (NIGHT ONE) 1 *
A jet-black vintage sports car sails down Sunset, cruising
through the adult Disneyland that is nighttime Los Angeles.
Neon and billboards reflected on the windshield. The Stones’
“Gimme Shelter” blasting from the radio.
2 INT. LUCIFER’S CAR - CONTINUOUS 2 *
The Devil himself. Say hello to LUCIFER MORNINGSTAR.
He’s good-looking, a man of considerable wealth and taste,
but that’s not what makes him jump off the screen. It’s his
vibe. Pure lusty mischief. Sardonic smile. Timeless style.
He’s that Lucifer. The son of God. The one who rebelled,
plotted against his father and plummeted from grace. The one
who was banished from Paradise and forced to serve as the
Lord of Hell for all eternity.
But right now, Lucifer’s getting pulled over for speeding. A
motorcycle cop. Lucifer adjusts his mirror to see OFFICER
DIGGS approaching the car, he yells over the MUSIC.
CAN YOU TURN DOWN THE MUSIC, SIR?!
Lucifer TURNS DOWN THE VOLUME.
You know what they say, Officer...
If it’s getting too loud, you’re
gettin’ too old.
Do you know why I pulled you over?
Obviously you felt the need to
exercise your limited power and
punish me for ignoring the speed
limit. It’s okay. I understand.
I like to punish people too.
LUCIFER - Pilot - GREEN DRAFT - 3/13/15 2.
2 CONTINUED: 2
(a wistful aside)
Or at least I used to...
Do you have any idea how fast you
Haven’t a clue. I blame it on the
Stones. They just make a man wanna
drive, ya’ know what I mean?
And Lucifer has now locked eyes with the officer, A poignant
beat. The cop pauses for a moment, thoughtful.
Sometimes... I put my siren on, and
drive really fast for no reason at
all. Just ‘cause I can.
Right?! And why wouldn’t you? It’s
fun! Feels good to get away with
something, doesn’t it?
Diggs smiles. Chuckles. Yes...it...does. But then he catches
himself -- not sure why he just shared his secret desires
with a complete stranger.
It’s okay, Officer. People like to
tell me things. Those deep, dark,
naughty little desires that’re
really on their minds. It's a gift.
Must be something about this face.
(all biz now)
License and registration.
Coming right up...
Lucifer fishes a hundred out of his wallet, proffers it...
Are you trying to bribe me, sir?
Yes, of course. Why, is that not
enough? Here, take more, it’s only
LUCIFER - Pilot - GREEN DRAFT - 3/13/15 3.
2 CONTINUED: (2) 2
It’s against the law, sir.
You people are funny about your
laws. You break the law sometimes,
The officer nods. It’s almost involuntary.
Sometimes I’ll pull a woman over
for a minor infraction and get her
to flash me a little somethin’.
You dirty dog you...
Sometimes I let her off with a
warning. Sometimes I don’t.
Sometimes other stuff happens...
(shakes his head)
(nods at the cash)
You’re tempted to keep that, aren’t
(off the cop’s nod)
So what are you waiting for?
Permission? Keep it! Buy yourself
something pretty. You deserve it.
But if you don’t mind, I really
must be on my way...
The officer takes the money and puts it in his pocket.
Okay, sir, you have a nice evening.
You too, Officer.
Officer Diggs walks away. Lucifer readjusts his mirror, but
this time we see a flash of something strange; a glimpse of
Lucifer's true reflection; almost too fast to even
comprehend, but enough to unsettle us as --
Lucifer dimes the radio and ROARS off -- leaving one very
dazed cop in his wake. As he goes, we see the Caddy’s rear
vanity plate, which reads: “FALL1N 1.” *
SMASH TO BLACK
TITLE CARD: LUCIFER
3 EXT. LUX - STREET - NIGHT 3
Lucifer pulls up in front of his bar, Lux. It doesn’t look
like much from the outside, but there’s a long line of
HOLLYWOOD HIPSTERS dying to get in.
Scene 3 - Siblings and Seduction
4 INT. LUX - CONTINUOUS 4
A little bit of Hell on earth. A living, breathing tribute to
Lucifer’s favorite things -- wine, women and song. Lucifer
glides through... soaking up the sights and sounds of elegant
debauchery like a proud, modern-day Gatsby.
His eyes land on the exotic, dark-haired beauty tending bar
over yonder. MAZIKEEN. But she’s always been just MAZE to
Lucifer. She leans seductively with her back against the bar,
doesn’t turn around as Lucifer approaches... speaks to him
via a mirror...
Where’ve you been?
Holed up at the Chateau. Copulating
with a woman named Faith. Ironic,
Maze shakes her head, disgusted. As she does, we catch an
unclear glimpse of her reflection in the bar mirror. A blur
of almost serpentine deformity. But it would be weird if Maze
was just your garden variety gal, wouldn’t it?
Have I ever told you how incredibly
sexy you are when you can’t control
And what emotions might those be?
Why, jealousy, of course.
LUCIFER - Pilot - GREEN DRAFT - 3/13/15 5.
4 CONTINUED: 4
A young man suddenly rises from where he’d been kneeling in
front of Maze. Lucifer’s eyebrows go up: didn’t see that
comin’. Maze grins at him:
Thank you, Patrick. You can go.
She finally turns to face Lucifer, smiles and shrugs.
What? I dropped something.
(off Lucifer’s grin/shrug)
Now. Lucifer. I’m a big fan of sex--
But shouldn’t you be spending your
valuable time doing something
more... significant. You’re the
Lord of Hell, for cryin-out-loud.
I’m retired, Maze. I’ve got nothing
Maze stares at him for a beat. Then senses something. As does
Lucifer. A ripple in the drink she just poured. Time slows.
Music and laughter become warped and haunted as everyone in
the club slows... except Lucifer and Maze, who share a look.
I think you have a visitor.
Through the SLOW-MOTION crowd, Lucifer sees AMENADIEL. The
man is a study in grim intensity. He’s Lucifer’s brother AND
AN ANGEL. Yep, majestic wings and everything. But Amenadiel’s
also a badass. Last thing he radiates is angelic goodness.
Amenadiel! How’s it hanging, big
guy? Didn’t you see the sign? “No
angels allowed”? No? I’ll make an
exception for you -- on the house.
Lucifer slides over a drink, which Amenadiel ignores.
(takin in Lux)
You’ve become quite ensconced with
this little hobby of yours...
(off Lucifer’s nod of thanks)
LUCIFER - Pilot - GRAY - 3/19/15 6.

Your return to The Underworld has
been... requested. *
Oh, okay, let me check my calendar.
Yep, here it is. The seventh of
Never through the fifteenth of
Ain’t Gonna Happen? How’s that work
for you guys?
Amenadiel just stares at him... grim, not amused.
I’m consistently surprised by the
whole no sense of humor thing.
Look, remind Dad I quit Hell
because I was sick and tired of
playing a part in his play. I
believe in free will, not that
tyranny of all his predestination
I’ll warn you against disrespecting
Yeah well, Our Father’s been
disrespecting me since the
beginning of time so... pot/kettle.
Don’t you think?
You are a mockery of everything
Thank you! But lately I’ve been
doing a fair amount of thinking. Do
you think I’m the devil because I’m
inherently evil or simply because
dear ol’ Dad decided I was? Isn’t *
this a classic case of labeling? *
What do you think happens when the *
Devil leaves Hell? All those *
demons, those tormented souls... *
where do they go? *
Don’t know, don’t care, not my *
LUCIFER - Pilot - GREEN DRAFT - 3/13/15 7.
4 CONTINUED: (3) 4
Consider the position officially
open. So you, my feathered friend,
can go to hell.
In a blink, Amenadiel's wing-tip is at Lucifer's throat.
Ancient steel fused at its tips. Lucifer’s glass falls,
shatters... but he doesn't flinch.
Go for it. You think Father's upset
Amenadiel wants to kill him. Badly. But Lucifer knows his
Father won't let him die, at least he's willing to test it.
He has been patient five years. He
will not be merciful much longer.
Threat planted, Amenadiel withdraws, and exits... and the
club now slips back into regular motion. Lucifer only now
deflates. Amenadiel clearly rattles him.
Scene 4 - Fixing a Fallen Star
5 EXT. LUX - STREET - NIGHT 5
Lucifer stands outside, spinning A COIN in his hand, still
thinking about his conversation with Amenadiel... when A TAXI *
slows to a stop in front of Lux. The rear window rolls down.
A beautiful, hot mess appears. This is DELILAH.
Delilah is a fallen-from-grace pop star. The crowd waiting in
line reacts like crowds do when confronted with a super
famous person, tragic or not. Oohs and ahhs and iPhones
galore. But Delilah only has eyes for Lucifer.
Lucifer smiles... of course he does, but teases...
Yes... you’re famous. Delilah,
isn’t it? Can I have your
If I can have a drink.
6 INT. LUX - NIGHT 6
Lucifer and Delilah sit at a booth. Maze hovers in the BG.
Feel safe here, I guess. Reminds me *
of how it was before everything got *
so big and messy. And you...
sometimes I feel like you were the
only one who was ever really honest
with me. But... I need to know
Did I sell my soul to the Devil?
That would imply the Devil is
actually interested in your soul.
That’s the stuff of movies and TV.
They always get it wrong.
Come on, you took me in off the
street, let me sing up there
anytime I wanted. I told you I
wanted to be a star and that’s when
things started happening for me.
And you do call yourself Lucifer.
Call me whatever you want, but I’m
really just a patron of the arts.
Honestly, I introduced you to a few
key people who owed me favors. That’s
She leans in, serious and vulnerable now... like a lost kid. *
Do you think I’m talented?
Of course. You have one of the most
beautiful voices I’ve ever heard.
It’s sweet, dirty, sexy, soulful...
I knew you were a star, I just
helped the world catch up.
Well, it certainly feels very
Faustian at times. Because along
with the good came a hell of a lot
Oh, so the Devil made you do it?
The alcohol, the drugs, the topless
selfies? Your choices are on you,
You’re right. You’re absolutely
right. But the toxic relationships
were my biggest screw-up. God, I
really do have the worst taste in
You really do, darling. Jimmy
Barnes? I can’t believe you almost
married that sweaty little imp...
He produced my album! You
I suggested you work with him --
not sleep with him.
I got confused!
And then you left him at the altar.
Yeah, that was pretty rude of me.
He trapped me in the bathroom at
the Grammys a month ago. Cried.
Said he wanted to get back
together. Then I hear he’s marrying
some supermodel this weekend.
(laughs/almost crying) *
God, I’m such a mess.
God has nothing to do with your
mess anymore than I do.
You didn’t sell your soul, Delilah,
but you do owe me a favor. Looks
like it’s time to settle up.
(kidding but not)
LUCIFER - Pilot - GREEN DRAFT - 3/13/15 10.
6 CONTINUED: (3) 6
You should be. Because what I’m
about to ask is going to be quite
difficult for you.
Pull yourself together. That’s it.
That’s all I’m asking. Get it
together before it’s too late.
You’re wasting your talent. Your
I let you down.
Then fix it.
Off Delilah, a glimmer of hope in her eyes...

Lucifer and Delilah walk out... saying goodbye...
I’m gonna do what you asked. I’m
gonna get it together, Lucifer. I
It’s not about me. All these terrible
things that weren’t supposed to happen?
They happened. What happens next is up
She nods. Smiles. Pulls him into an intense hug. They’re
still hugging when a piece-a-shit car slows to a stop in
front of Lux...
SHOTS rings out -- Lucifer and Delilah are RIDDLED WITH
BULLETS. As they both go down in a heap, the car SCREECHES
off. But without warning the shooter’s car is VICIOUSLY
BROADSIDED by a CITY BUS. A beat as everything settles. Then--
AN UNHOLY GROAN from Lucifer as he rises to a sitting
position. His clothes are torn with SMOKING holes. He rips
his shirt open. No blood. No entry wounds. Just pain. A lot
of fucking pain. He slowly climbs to his feet. Goes over to
Delilah, beautiful in peaceful repose. And very much dead.
Lucifer’s face tightens with pain. He looks down the street. *
Zeroes in on the wreckage and stalks over to it.
The SHOOTER’S body has been thrown from the crumpled car.
Laid out in a pile of broken glass. Twisted and BLOODY, but
still alive. It’s all Lucifer can do to control his emotion.
What did you do?
I- I’m sorry...
Sorry? Tell me why. Why did you
end her life?
(seething, leans closer)
I can smell death coming for you --
shall I speed it along?
Why else? Money...
Times like these I wish I was back
in Hell. What I would do to you...
Hey, I just pulled the trigger...
What do you mean by that?
The shooter coughs up a final geyser of BLOOD and dies.
Lucifer walks back over to Delilah. He stands there, staring
down at her... with something in his eyes. Is it loss? Which
is when we realize that we’re watching Lucifer from SOMEONE
9 EXT. LUX - STREET - CONTINUOUS 9 *
FIND Amenadiel in the shadows, a SLOW-MOTION ballet of
ONLOOKERS around him. As he glares at Lucifer ominously, we
wonder: is he observing this moment? Or did he cause it?
10 EXT. LUX - STREET - LATER - SAME NIGHT 10
Now a full-blown crime scene. Cherry tops spin. Police swarm.
CORONER’s put Delilah’s body in a bag and into the back of
their van as an UNMARKED COP CAR pulls up. Out hops LAPD
homicide detective CHLOE DANCER (30s). Beautiful, but
downplays it on purpose. She’s smart, cold and direct.
She strides over to the wrecked car where THE SHOOTER still
lies in a bed of broken glass and blood. Bends over to get a
closer look... when she hears some snickering and whispering.
Turns to see a couple ROOKIE UNIFORMS staring at her.
Yeah, but look at his watch -- that
Probably a fake.
(off Chloe, staring at it)
Wouldn’t pick too hard at this one,
Chloe. Not after Palmetto Street.
I begged for this case because of
Palmetto, Dan. I need a big win or
I’ll never get out of the penalty
box... So... any witnesses?
Scene 6 - Lucifer and Chloe
11 INT. LUX - NIGHT 11
...where Chloe is now questioning Lucifer. Lucifer’s
distracted. His swirling emotions over Delilah’s death are
disorienting him. Maze hovers nearby.
Lucifer Morningstar...? Is that
like, a stage name or something?
God-given, I’m afraid.
You look familiar. Have we met?
(uh-oh, but remains casual)
Five minutes ago. And I’m asking
the questions... Talk to me about
your relationship with the victim. *
She used to work here. A few years
back. I would occasionally
accompany her while she sang. Then
she became a big star and someone
decided to end her life.
Did you know the shooter?
No. But we did have a nice little
chat before he kicked off. I asked *
him why he did it.
I see. Like to play cop, do you?
LUCIFER - Pilot - GREEN DRAFT - 3/13/15 14.
11 CONTINUED: 11
I like to play in general. What
about you, Detective? *
Chloe’s almost amused -- got a real live one here. *
So you spoke to a dead guy?
He wasn’t quite dead. His soul was
still crossing the threshold. *
(indulges him) *
Okay then... why’d he do it? *
Money, of course. You humans love
Yes. Yes, we do. And what planet
are you from? London?
He also said... “I just pulled the
trigger.” Interesting, no?
Chloe takes that in. She’s heard enough. Shuts it down.
Delilah was shot to death by a drug
dealer. And looks like Delilah
herself kept the guy pretty busy.
It’s sad. It’s ugly. But it’s not
rocket science. Something obviously *
went south between them, she gets
riddled with bullets, and a nice
little act of God takes him out.
It doesn’t work like that!
It’s quite a neatly wrapped present
for the LAPD, don’t you think?
Okay. How does she end up dying in *
a hailstorm of bullets and you get
away without a scratch? That’s *
suspicious, don’t you think? *
LUCIFER - Pilot - GREEN DRAFT - 3/13/15 15.

The benefits of immortality.
Immortality... of course.
(writing it down)
Do you spell that with one m or
two, I always forget.
What will your corrupt little
organization do about this?
Will you find the one responsible?
Will he be punished? Will this be a
priority for you?
Chloe studies him. Not sure if he’s a prick... a lunatic or *
something more... *
You’ve got some balls on you, pal.
Thank you, but they’re really quite
Are you sure we haven’t met? I
could swear I’ve seen you naked.
Did we have sex?
Nope. Just a prick. *
What? Go to hell.
No thank you. Much more fun here.

Wait. Detective. We’re not finished.
Yeah. We are.
And she’s out. OFF LUCIFER, frustrated.
END OF ACT ONE

Scene 7 - Breaking Mirrors
12 INT. LUX - LATER THAT NIGHT 12
Lucifer plays piano, fingers flying, an intense version of
Bowie’s “Lady Stardust.” Suddenly he SMASHES the keys in a
burst of atonal fury, his gaze fixed on something ahead...
It's his reflection in the mirrored fireplace. That
disturbing face again. We catch just a hint of it before --
He gets up and HURLS a lamp at the mirror, SMASHING it to *
pieces. Maze enters. Surveys the damage. Says nothing. Which
only serves to infuriate Lucifer even more.
Throughout this scene, the hint of Lucifer's “darker side”
will be reflected in the shattered mirror behind Maze. We
will never fully see it. But it's enough to make us uneasy.
Out with it, Maze!
Why this upsets you so much.
There is someone out there that
deserves punishment. And it’s not.
Going. To. Happen.
Who cares? Mortals die every day.
Yes, insignificant ones! Human
nothings who never add anything to
this world. They only take and
consume and die cowardly pathetic
deaths. But this was different! She
Maze studies him, a mix of concern, disdain and astonishment.
You care about her...
Please. I care about punishing the
Lucifer steps in closer -- as does his reflection in the
shattered mirror behind her.
I don’t mind the occasional
smartass remarks, Maze. They can be
amusing, but don’t disrespect me.
But instead of retreating, Maze steps closer too... slides
her hands around Lucifer’s neck seductively.
The opposite is true. You’re the
Prince of frickin’ Darkness. It’s
all well and good to take a
vacation, have fun in paradise with
the low-hanging fruit. But you're
losing sight of who you actually
are, Lucifer. You exist to punish
and torture for a universal reason.
Certainly not for a petty human
emotion such as love.
Lucifer cracks a smile, playing it off now with sarcasm.
I am not human. Take that back.
(sighs, playing it off)
The world was robbed of a great
talent. That makes me angry. Makes
me want to punish someone. In very
unholy ways. That’s all.
Maze smiles, leans in... her lips inches from his.
Does that mean we’re going home?
He’s silent. Her smile fades but she kisses him sensually on
the cheek and slinks off. ON LUCIFER, Maze’s words echoing...
13 EXT. MALIBU COASTLINE - DAY (DAY 2) 13 *
Gliding over the beautiful Oceanside, we pick up Lucifer’s
car as it speeds down the ribbon of highway that is the PCH.
Scene 8 - Wedding Crasher
14 EXT. MALIBU - WEDDING SITE - DAY 14
Wedding in progress. A short, sweaty music mogul named JIMMY
BARNES is about to wed a stunning, statuesque SUPERMODEL

I have a problem. Has anyone else
noticed how incredibly, jaw-
beautiful this young woman is? And
how short, sweaty and altogether
fugly this homunculus is? What is
this? A wedding or a kidnapping?
Reactions from the GUESTS as Lucifer arrives at the altar.
The Priest crosses himself, starts mumbling some prayers.
Good luck with that, padre. While
you’re at it, tell him I say hey --
it’s been awhile.
He turns his attention to the groom, who’s sweating yet
desperately clinging to some semblance of cool.
Jimmy Barnes! Do you remember me?
Hey, man, this is a private event.
How’d you get in here?
Yes, and quite a lavish, be it
tacky one for a record producer on

Of course I remember you! What do
you want?! I’m a little busy!
I can’t believe you’re getting
married the day after your ex-lover
and once brightest star is murdered
in cold blood.
Yeah, it’s sad, but Delilah ruined
my wedding once before. I wasn’t
about to let her do it again.
(locks eyes with him)
Yes. It’s hard to be rejected,
isn’t it Jimmy? Twice.
She said you tried to get her back
recently. I’d kill someone if they
denied me once... not that that’s
possible. Come on, tell me, Jim-bo,
did you want her dead? You know I
love a juicy story.
Jimmy averts his eyes.
I’m not playing that mind game with
you. Of course not! I was furious
and humiliated when she dumped me,
but I think I rebounded pretty well.
He gestures at his beautiful BRIDE-TO-BE. Lucifer gives her
an appreciative glance.
You should go play your games with
LUCIFER - Pilot - GREEN DRAFT - 3/13/15 20.
14 CONTINUED: (3) 14
Yeah, Delilah dumped me for that
lunatic. They were always fighting.
I think he slapped her around a
bunch. He’s the real deal, man, and
he’s surrounded by a bunch of gun-
toting morons 24-7.
The information satisfies Lucifer, but his thirst for
taunting not quite met... Turns his attention to the bride.
I’m sorry, how rude of me. Allow me *
to introduce myself...
He extends a hand. She takes it, oddly charmed. Stares at him
for a beat, feels a sudden, overwhelming urge to confess her
inner desires... or lack there of...
I really don’t want to have sex
with him tonight.
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean that!
Jimmy is dumbstruck. So is she.
Of course you don’t! Let’s be
honest here. You’re not marrying
this human stain because you’re
actually in love with him, right?
No, I guess it’s more about
Good luck with that. He’s broke.
(she starts to cry)
Dry your tears, darling. At least
you’ll have this magical day.
Well, I should be going. Best of
luck to you crazy kids.
Lucifer turns and walks off down the aisle... a figurative
mushroom cloud in his wake.
Scene 9 - The Narcotics Deal
15 EXT. 2VILE’S PLACE - HOLLYWOOD HILLS - DAY 15
Lucifer cruises up the drive of a pimped-out palace that
could easily have its own very special episode of MTV Cribs.

Lucifer exits his car, rings the bell. A massive GONG sounds.
Door’s opened by a WHITE ENGLISH BUTLER.
Good afternoon, sir.
I’m here to see the man sadly known
as 2Vile. Is he in?
Lucifer follows the Butler into the den. Furniture from MOMA.
Killer city views. The ultimate in tacky Hollywood living.
2VILE’S CREW’s scattered all over the place. Hip-hop
thumping. There’s tons of weed, weapons -- it’s a real scene.
An immensely expensive PLASMA TV in the background plays NEWS
on Delilah’s death. The hot headline.
Can someone please turn down this
Tattooed hip-hop thug 2VILE appears through a thick haze of

He has narcotics for you, sir.

16 CONTINUED: 16
What, you don’t like hip-hop?
No, I most certainly do not.
That offends me. You have a problem
with black people?
Not in the slightest. I just hate
your music. And when I say “your
music,” I mean your music -- not
music made by other black people.
Without the blues, there would be no
devil’s music whatsoever. There are,
of course, many giants in the field.
Just not you. Am I being clear?
You’re being clear all right -- if
you’re looking to get yourself
Don’t waste your munitions. I’m
immortal. Tell me about Delilah.
What’s to tell? She’s dead. *
That ignites Lucifer. He violently SHOVES 2VILE, sending him
SHATTERING THROUGH A GLASS DOOR, toppling over the balcony to
certain death just as Lucifer grabs him by his blinged-out
chains. Suspending him high above the hillside.
2VILE'S CREW react. One FIRES on impulse, bullet PINGING off
DON’T SHOOT HIM, YOU IDIOT!
Crew freezes. Nothing they can do. If Lucifer goes down.
2Vile goes down further. 2Vile looks up at the face of death.
I didn't kill her!
Why should I believe you?

Chloe frowns, gets out, locks the car doors and heads into
the school. Lucifer stares at the car lock, it pops up and he
gets out to stretch, lights a cigarette when... A MILFY MOM
crosses his path and disappears into the school. Lucifer
likes what he sees. Decides to follow her in.

Like the devil?!
My name is Beatrice. But everyone
calls me Trixie.
That’s a hooker’s name.
What’s a hooker?
Ask your mother.
Why are you in trouble?
See that girl over there?
She nods at a MEAN GIRL sitting across the way.
The ugly one?

Yes! She was bullying me. She created
a fake Snapchat account and used it
to make fun of me! So I kicked her in
the no-no-touch zone!
Lucifer pauses. Trixie points to his crotch. Lucifer nods.
I see. Well-played.
He gets up, walks over to MEAN GIRL and sits beside her.
Hello, Mean Girl. Did you know that
you will never amount to anything
in this life, and that there’s a
special section of Hell reserved
for bullies. So, have fun!
Lucifer's eyes peel open, revealing a flash of horrid ones
beneath. Mean Girl bursts into tears. And as she does, she
suddenly slows. In fact everything around her slows...
Lucifer’s grin fades. We now know what this means. Amenadiel
is near. Lucifer stands, looks down to the far end of the
hallway. Children pass in SURREAL MOTION, a shadow looming
beyond them, when suddenly...
A distorted voice calls out to Lucifer from behind. He turns.
Hello?! What'd you do?
Everything has slipped back to NORMAL SPEED. The kids in the
hall, Trixie and crying Mean Girl. Lucifer recovers quickly.
I think someone’s feeling a little
guilty. Isn’t that right, child?
More tears from Meanie. A smile from Trixie. Off Chloe: WTF? *

21 EXT. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL - STREET - DAY 21
Lucifer, Chloe and Trixie walk out as DAN ESPINOZA arrives.
What’s he doing here?
Right, like I’m not working a case
too. You remember -- the one you
tried to steal from me?
You mean the open and shut one. You
did open and shut it, right?
Off Chloe’s silence -- clearly, that’s a no. *
Have you been going rogue, dear? *
I’m not going rogue. I’m just being *
diligent. I need to get this right, *
Dan. It’s a high profile case. *
Exactly. Which is why you need to
be smart about it-- *
Lucifer clocks Trixie sticking her fingers in her ears.
She is smart. You’re a dimwit. But
perhaps you should refrain from
arguing in front of the child. It’s
unbecoming. Not to mention another
waste of my time. Which is far more
important. To me.
A moment. Dan looks at Chloe.
Who’s this idiot? New boyfriend? I
thought we agreed not to--
Lucifer grabs Dan in a firm handshake. Gets up close, says:
Allow me to introduce myself. I’m a
man who could make you see things
that would drive you blind. Or pull
your spine out through your mouth.

Your choice. But I wouldn’t do any

having a clandestine affair with a
wealthy married man. Just tell us
his name and we’ll be on our way.

Mmmmmmokay, it’s Grey Cooper.
Grey Cooper? Seriously? That is
The actor? The one married to Amanda
What’s-her-face? Oh, he’s horrible.
So square-jawed and handsome. So
vanilla. I’m really quite *
disappointed in Delilah. Truly
terrible taste in the opposite sex.
Thank you doctor, we’ll be in touch.
Of course, but I made a deal. I need
to hold up my end of the bargain.
You’re not actually talking about *
having sex with her?? Now? *
Lucifer looks at Chloe. She’s right. This can wait. He looks
at Linda, who smiles languidly, shifts in her seat...
I do a lot of yoga. I am freakishly
flexible... wanna see?
Wow, really tried to keep that in.
You tried. That’s what matters.
I do apologize, but I’m going to
have to take a rain check. I will
I certainly hope so.
My word is my bond.

Lucifer walks with purpose down a dingy street, pushing his
way past a GROUP OF ONLOOKERS crowded behind a barrier. As he
starts to pass, a feeble TRAFFIC COP tries to stop him.
Sir. Uh. You have to stay behind
Lucifer ignores him, stepping casually past the barricade
when suddenly, a MUSCLE CAR comes SPEEDING around the corner.
Pursued by TWO COP CARS. Lights. Sirens. And GUNFIRE!
Muscle car’s tire BLOWS. Car FLIPS. And CRASH-SLIDES right
towards Lucifer, who doesn't move as it skids to a halt
inches from him. When we HEAR...

TRANSITION TO: this same moment over A VIDEO MONITOR... where

set. And Lucifer has just fucked up the big shot. Chloe
hurries in behind him, couple UNIFORMS in her wake. She
flashes her badge.
He's with me! Sorry.

overturned car. He's square-jawed, handsome, and vanilla.

questions, thank you.

showing the outpouring of support from Delilah’s fans. A
REPORTER commenting on the recent rise of her album sales.

Too bad your little protegé’s not
around to cash the check.

Late night session. A YOUNG BOY BAND recording. Tired mixers
at work. And... JIMMY, harping on a Justin Bieber-y kid. Door *
booms open. TECHS and MIXERS curse as Lucifer and Chloe
interrupt the session, making a bee-line for Jimmy.
Really?! Wasn’t enough to destroy
my wedding, huh--
Jimmy winces at that one. Hides his fear. But not well.
JIMMY BARNES *
What album? *
The soundtrack for Time Will Tell. *
That YOU produced... Whitney *
Houston reached the top 10 for
album sales after her death.
Michael Jackson hit the
stratosphere! I’m not sure you’ll
achieve the same heights by having
Delilah killed, but that’s still a *
buttload of royalty checks comin’ *
your way. Not a bad year for you.
Guess you need that cash, huh?
Which is why you had to pay the *
shooter with your watch. *
The watch Delilah gave you. Now *
that’s just sick, but then you are,
Jimmy’s sweaty face turns red. Then. He does something
unexpected -- he GRABS one of the BAND BOYS as a shield and
whips out a fucking GUN! Chloe’s gun is out in a blink.
WHOA! Hey! Jimmy?!
The room freezes.
I made her! And she ruined me! She
humiliated me! She owes me!
Lucifer doesn't seem threatened by this escalation. Because
he isn't. He advances on Jimmy.
You’re not God, Jimmy. You didn’t
make her. But you did destroy her.
So I’m going to punish you.
JIMMY BARNES *
Back off, you freak! I mean it! I’m *
not going to prison for that bitch. *
NO chance. *
Jimmy’s twitchy. Lucifer gets way too close and Jimmy SWINGS
his gun up to fire on Lucifer when BOOM, BOOM! Chloe gets off
two shots first. One hits a lamp. The other nails Jimmy. He *
drops to the ground. Dead. And here's the fun part... LUCIFER
WHY DID YOU DO THAT?!
He was going to kill you!
No-no-no you just let him off too
easy! He needs to suffer! He needs
to pay! He needs to feel the pain,
not escape it!
(trying to understand him)
Well, don’t worry. I’m sure where
he’s going the pain and
Actually, no. It’s not. And why?
Because I am here, and--
BOOM. BOOM. BOOM. All eyes were off Jimmy who is still
ticking and FIRES off three shots at Chloe. One LANDS. Chloe
Chloe staggers. BLOOD coming up fast. Lucifer hurries to her
side. She looks up at him through clouded, murky eyes.
I don’t want to die...
I won’t let you... My father will
just have to wait for you.
The moment is interrupted by more SHOTS from Jimmy. Lucifer
protects Chloe now -- using his own body as a shield. He
cringes. Fuck that hurts. WE see it, SHE doesn’t.
Lucifer turns and WE STAY IN CHLOE’S POV -- her vision
blurred. Distorted. She’s catching only glimpses... but sees
Lucifer walk over... grab Jimmy by the neck and SLAM him up
against a nearby glass booth.
The glass cracks in a spiderweb... AND WE SEE Lucifer’s
broken, demonic face in the shattered glass behind Jimmy.
Please. Don’t kill me.
Lucifer flips Jimmy around to see THAT HORRID, NIGHTMARISH
You’re going to wish that was all I
did to you.
And then CHLOE’S VISION is lost to BLACK and we HEAR Jimmy’s
blood-curdling SCREAM over a moment in DARKNESS...
Which then gives way to a BRIGHT TUNNEL OF LIGHT... Oh, wait.
It’s just a regular light. A HOSPITAL BED LIGHT...
Scene 21 - Hospital Showdown
29 INT. HOSPITAL - ROOM - DAY (DAY 3) 29 *
Chloe is coming to. She finds Lucifer hovering over her.
Looking more like an angel than a devil. Good lighting.
Well, look who’s back.
How long have I been out?
Lucifer smiles. The bastard just can’t help himself.
You’re such an ass.
He was firing at you. Why are you
not more... dead?
LUCIFER - Pilot - GREEN DRAFT - 3/13/15 53.
29 CONTINUED: 29
You're having a very hard time with
the immortal thing, aren't you?
(struggling to make sense) *
Must’ve been delirious from the *
blood loss. *
Whatever helps you sleep, my dear. *
What happened to Jimmy?
He got what he deserved.
That hangs there. Another mystery Chloe will have to deal *
with later. She changes gears.
Well, I'm pretty sure I'd be dead
if you hadn’t helped me. So, thank
I'm sorry. I missed that last part.
(slightly annoyed smile)
Thank you. *
Lucifer, suddenly uncomfortable with the warm exchange:
Besides, you're far too interesting
to let die.
You saved my life because you find
Wildly irritating as well, but yes. *
Lucifer grins, but can’t hide that there’s more to it than *
that. Chloe studies him, frowns... either can she... *
And I’m not sure I like what I see.
You’re showing restraint. Mercy.
Scared I’m turning away from the
Dark Side, bro? Gonna give you a
little competition for Dad’s fav?
Don’t worry, I’m not.
Something flashes in Lucifer’s eyes -- something evil.
I don’t believe you. The human *
world can be even more painful than *
hell, Lucifer. Stay here, and *
prepare to feel things you have *
never felt before. *
(stone cold serious now)
Do not threaten me, Amenadiel. You *
(flash of anger) *
Then go BACK!! *
(realizing... pleased) *
You’re the one who’s threatened. *
My hatred of you grows stronger
with each visit.
Wouldn’t have it any other way,
pal. Look forward to eating your
heart one day. Peace.
Amenadiel turns and walks off. Lucifer watches him go...
31 INT. LUX - MOMENTS LATER 31
Lucifer drops down at the piano. Maze watches from a short
distance. What looks like A DAGGER spins on its point in the
palm of her hand. But before we get a good look, she stops
it... walks over to Lucifer... quiet.
I sense your disapproval, Maze.
What is it?
