Looks like Aimee Garcia would make things interesting when “Lucifer” Season 2 hits the small screen by Sept. 19. Rumors are swirling that she is being groomed to be the love interest of Tom Ellis.
Garcia was formally introduced as the newest addition to the hit police procedural series that showcase the Prince of Darkness leaving his post in Hell to live among the living and picked the City of Angles to be his home. Season 2 will bring fans and viewers to a new story line as Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) will try to bring back his mother, Charlotte (Tricia Helfer), back to Hell where she belongs.
Garcia will play the role of Ella Lopez, the police department’s new forensic scientist. She will work closely with Det. Chloe Decker (Lauren German). However, TV Line describes Ella as brainy but spiritual, warm but tough. Her mutual belief in both faith and science proves a point of interest to Tom Ellis.
“The duality of Ella’s personality will also intrigue the retired Lord of Hell. Her mutual belief in both faith and science,” the network says, “proves a point of interest to Lucifer — and the rest of the department — as they get to know and love her quirky ways.”
Thus her addition to the show would bring a love triangle that involves Chloe and Lucifer. It is also said that Lucifer is looking more on the reason why Chloe is able to resist his charms rather than teaming up with the detective in solving crimes. But as showrunner, Joe Henderson stated that Season 2 will mainly focus on Lucifer’s mother issues and will stick to Lucifer’s friendship with Det. Decker.
It is clear that Henderson is doing what he previously stated that they would try to explore another playoff with the show’s characters. Thus, putting Garcia with Ellis and German in the mix would prove something to look forward to. Henderson added that it is only one mix and match that they will explore and there would more to come as Season 2 progresses.
“What I am very proud of is that we have this amazing cast, all of whom have chemistry with each other. Now it’s up to us to put them in situations where similar to the finale’s Chloe and Maze, we can see who else bounces off each other in ways we didn’t expect,” Henderson added.
“Lucifer” Season 2 proves more intriguing as the show will mainly focus on looking for mom but love interest will spice up the show as Garcia will be able to get Ellis’ attention away from German. The show has started its filming in Vancouver, Canada and reports are stating that Helfer and Ellis are doing their scenes as the first parts of Season 2 will mainly focus on her character, Charlotte.
“Lucifer” will make it return on Sept. 19, 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
