In keeping with tradition from the past seasons, co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich is back to sharing behind-the-scenes photos. This time, she has a snap from the first day of filming for "Lucifer" Season 5 Episode 1 and from the looks of it, the image suggests tension is brewing between Dan and Amenadiel.
The BTS photo shows Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) and Detective Dan (Kevin Alejandro) at the Los Angeles Police Department. Their body language suggests something is amiss. Amenadiel seems to be explaining something or making a point with one hand on his hips and the other gesturing in the air.
Meanwhile, Detective Douche looks like someone who has been scolded for misbehaving or someone who is about to retaliate. His stance is rigid and both his hands are placed firmly in front of him.
It is a stretch to get "Lucifer" Season 5 spoilers based on their body language and it is anyone's guess what really happens in this Episode 1 scene. A fan suggests that Amenadiel is either asking for parental advice or revealing his true identity to the detective, while another joked that Dan is asking Amenadiel about his precious pudding.
Viewers may remember though, that the two did not end on good terms in Season 4 despite that emotional Episode 1 talk. Dan shut Amenadiel's attempts at friendship because he was still recovering from Charlotte's death. Amenadiel only wanted Dan's help in learning how to blend in with the humans since he has decided to stay on Earth to take care of Linda and their baby.
Dan has a reason to feel dejected. After all, Amenadiel disappeared on him at a moment when he needed a friend to lean on when he was grieving Charlotte's death.
What little bromance that transpired in Season 3 between the two men is gone. Here's hoping though that "Lucifer" Season 5 will bring that back when Dan realizes his mistake for pushing Amenadiel away.
Interestingly, the BTS photo jives with the title for "Lucifer" Season 5 Episode 1, " Really Sad Devil Guy."
Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) is probably being referred to in the title since Season 4 saw him leave Chloe (Lauren German) to return to hell. The title could also refer to both Amenadiel and Dan, who each have lost someone important in their lives. Regardless of the scenario, fans are just happy to see the first BTS photo from the filming of "Lucifer" season 5 and excited to see the show back on Netflix.
