“Lucifer” season 3 episode 20 will not be airing this week. Viewers will have to wait until April 9 for the show to return. The plot is now racing towards the end game, with Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling) emerging as the main villain.

The previous episode teased Pierce as the real baddie, even though he has been acting like a friend to Morningstar (Tom Ellis). With only three episodes remaining, the show is set to focus on them, Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and Chloe (Lauren German).

After making Chloe fall in love with him, Pierce moved in to recruit Maze to his cause. Morningstar at the moment is all alone, except for the possible support of his brother Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside). Will Pierce use Maze to distract Amenadiel while he deals with the Devil?

Morningstar is beginning to crack already, seeing Chloe fall for Pierce. It will be interesting to see if he warns the detective about the danger she is in. What does Pierce really want? Is he just looking to settle down, or does he have a more sinister plan up his sleeve?

Previously, Pierce did a thorough investigation on the Devil when he first came to the city. Was he sent by God to drive a wedge between Morningstar and Chloe?

Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) already knows the truth. Now, it looks like it is only a matter of time before it is revealed to the detective. With all the emotional turmoil of the characters, the show appears to be heading towards an explosive end.

The finale of “Lucifer” season 3 is set to air on April 23. The episode is expected to set the stage for next season.

Will Morningstar lose his wings and get his devil face back in the end? If he does lose his wings, will it be during a time he needs it the most?
