Recap / Lucifer (2016) S02E14 "Candy Morningstar"

Go To

Lucifer returns to LA after two weeks of absence, and he's not alone. Meet Candy Morningstar, his new wife.

Tropes present in this episode include:

  • Buxom Is Better: Candy's chest size doesn't go unnoticed by anyone.
  • Dumb Blonde: Candy is a bit spacey. Or, at least, that's what Lucifer wants everyone, and especially his mother, to believe.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: No pun intended. Maze is studying Candy's chest and posterior; she's not disappointed by what she's seeing.
    Maze: (nods in approval) Awesome. Lucifer's outdone himself.
    Candy: Thank you!

  • Fire-Forged Friends: Dan and Lucifer have come a long way since they met:
    Chloe: Since when do you guys talk?
    Dan: Since he helped me save your life.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: The reason Lucifer returned to LA with a wife? So Chloe would be able to let go of her feelings for him, which Lucifer thinks are the result of God's meddling, even if it means that they won't be together.
  • Insistent Terminology: Candy is an exotic dancer, not a stripper.
  • Insult Misfire: While interrogating the victim's ex-wife, she can relate to having an immature partner. Lucifer tells Dan not to take it personally.
    Dan: I'm sure she wasn't talking about me.
    Lucifer: Who else could she talking about?
  • Jerkass Realization: Mother, upon realizing that her selfish actions and her manipulation of Lucifer might have truly broken his spirit.

  • Manchild: The victim, according to his ex-wife. He and his band consider her "uncool".
  • Noodle Incident: Candy owed him for saving her in Las Vegas.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Candy is really good at pretending to be nothing more than a ditzy blonde bimbo. Part of her purpose is to find out Mother's plans.
    Mother: She's a sinister genius.
    Amenadiel: Mother. Come on now.
    Mother: Here I thought this Candy was an insipid dullard. But she may be the most formidable opponent I've ever faced. I came away with nothing! Not a single crumb of information about Lucifer's real agenda.
  • Sarcasm-Blind: Candy is playing with the pendulum of metal balls, annoying Chloe while she's arguing with Lucifer.
    Chloe: Will you stop that!
    Candy: (stops the balls) Sorry, was it annoying?
    Chloe: No, I love that sound!
    Candy: Okay! (resumes playing)

  • She's Got Legs: Candy. Also, Chloe when she's wearing Candy's clothes.
  • Shipper on Deck: Candy advises Lucifer not to waste what he has with Chloe. Earlier, she had also told Chloe that Lucifer was a mess in Vegas and she was the only thing on his mind; it's doubtful that Lucifer asked Candy to say this.
  • Shout-Out: A Supergirl billboard appeared in the beginning.
  • Stealth Insult: The marriage councilor doesn't seem to have a high opinion of "Candy" (actually Chloe in disguise).
    "Candy:" (to Lucifer, about Candy) And that's why you chose an idiotic, bedazzled tweener as your partner!
    Councilor: I'm sorry, Candy, there's no name-calling here... even if it's to yourself.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Lucifer is called out for his actions by several people.
