If you haven't watched the first part of Lucifer season 5 yet, please be aware that the next paragraphs might contain spoilers.
The first part of Lucifer consisted of 8 episodes. Towards the end of episode 8, we saw an epic double battle between Lucifer fighting Maze, and Amenadiel fighting the new villain of the series, Michael (Lucifer's twin brother).
In the middle of the chaos, a light beamed from the stairs of the office building, and we saw God standing on top of the staircase, exclaiming, "That's enough!"
The three angels freeze as they looked at their father standing before them.
God then calmly said, "Children, you know I hate it when you fight," and the credits rolled.
The succeeding episodes would be "filled with God's presence" (pun intended).
We're already teased that the remaining half of season 5 will be the most emotional part of the series.
We're also looking forward to seeing Maze's demon face.
Lesley-Ann Brandt tells TVLine: "I have a great scene in the back half of the season with Dennis, and it's incredibly… Well, you get to see my demon face in that scene, I think I can drop that in there!".
It'll be a couple of months before the official trailer for season 5 part 2 drops. For now, we'll leave you with part 1's trailer. Take a look back at Michael and God's appearance teased in the short clip.
