Lucifer tells a story about the past and Lilith is the star

Lucifer lays out a spread of snacks and wine, expecting Chloe and some of the girls for game night. Instead, Trixie shows up alone.

She wants to hang out and innocently rummages through his things, asking for stories about them. Since the dagger and fuzzy handcuffs are off limits, she asks about his ring. Down for story time, Lucifer takes her back to 1946 when the devil visited New York.

This is the noir episode fans were promised, and the scene flips to black and white. Lucifer walks into a Manhattan cabaret club to meet an old friend: Lilith. It’s Maze’s mother, and she’s a lounge singer. She winks at Lucifer and after her number, they chat in her dressing room.

Lilith and Lucifer haven’t seen each other in a long time, and she shares that someone stole her ring. It’s important, and she demands he helps her find it. He owes her. He makes a joke about the devil solving crime, and then goes to visit a P.I. named Jack.

Stompanado threatens them, tells them to mind their business, and also warns Lucifer not to get too friendly with Lily (aka Lilith).

Jack goes home to his wife (who looks like Charlotte) and dinner is interrupted by a knock on the door. It’s Lucky Larry, and he falls forward with a knife in his back. Lucifer shows up to Jack’s house with the police. Jack receives a tip about Lucky Larry and some bad debt.

Lucifer and Jack ride out to follow a lead and on the way, Jack opens up about his wife. She’s a former call girl. Their relationship is on the rocks because it was “built on a lie.”

They arrive at the rich guy Willie’s house (played by Dan) who has a thing for sausage and wieners. Jack accuses him of killing Lucky Larry while Lucifer clumsily searches for Lilith’s ring.

Willie denies killing Larry but explains that he’s a fence. He offers Larry’s address. On the way out, Lucifer cracks a shady joke and tells Willie he reminds him of a shower, but French. Ha!

Back at the Garden Club, Lilith and the bartender chat about her past. Lilith says she used to be married to a guy named Adam long ago and things were…
