However, mother and son do not share the same opinion when it comes to humanity. Everything that fascinates Lucifer about people repels Mom - a disdain that's highlighted by that fact that Mom's trapped in a human body for her stay on Earth. Lucifer's desperate to find out what Mom's up to, but she claims that all she wants is to spend time with her sons again. But can the devil's mom really be that innocent?" (Deadline.com)
