Ed’s Winner for the Season:  Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) - Knowing that this series was originally intended to end last season made me somewhat skeptical about this one. Theoretically, the show's writers were given ten full episodes to accomplish something they thought they could achieve in the last act of an episode. I am so thankful they got that extra time because it allowed for Lucifer be introspective and figure out what he really wanted. The show shifted from a classic procedural into a character study. In fact, the final two episodes were pretty much one long goodbye. Some may call it self-indulgent, but they cannot deny that it was a fun and emotional journey with an old friend.
