Who will be the one to kill the Devil in season 6? (Picture: Metro.co.uk/Fox)
Watch out, Lucifer – you’re in trouble, with an upcoming season 6 episode titled ‘The Murder Of Lucifer Morningstar’.
It’s hardly an ambiguous title, though you have to wonder how that will happen to the literal Devil, and who exactly will be coming after him.
As an immortal, it’s going to take some doing, and there are plenty of ways in which you can actually kill him.
While season six is a way off yet, our heads are already ticking over who it could be.
A friend? An old foe? Or maybe, dare we say, a love?
Here’s who is already on our suspect list.
Lucifer may have broken his relationship with Maze beyond repair (Picture: Netflix)
Maze has been let down by Lucifer one too many times and, by the midway point of season five, has teamed up with Michael.
We’ll be honest, if we can place bets right now, we’d place one on her.
Her patience at being overlooked and underestimated by Lucifer has been wearing thin for a while now, and when we last saw her, they’d almost completely snapped.
On top of being a dangerous enemy to have on side, she’s also got something others don’t – a weapon that could actually injure Lucifer, with her throwing knives.
Could she finally use them after all this time?
Michael has a score to settle with Lucifer (Picture: Netflix)
Michael is not a fan of his twin brother, and has made it a mission in season five of trying to destroy his life on Earth.
Now his dad’s back in the picture, he’s going to have to tread carefully if he wants to exact his hate campaign against his brother.
However, Michael is a tricky sort, and knows what makes people tick, getting under the skin of Maze as well as a number of other key players.
He is someone who may not pull the trigger, but if he’s still around by season six, you will be damn sure he’ll somehow be connected to it.
What is going to come of Detective Dan? (Picture: Netflix)
Detective Dan Espinoza has a real love/hate relationship with Lucifer, and when he discovered the truth in season five, he went into a full-on meltdown and tried to shoot him.
Granted, the bullet bounced straight off him and did nothing but ruin one of Lucifer’s shirts, but still… he tried it.
At the end of the season five’s first half, he was a bit of a broken man trying to figure out his life… which we can’t entirely blame him for because confronting celestial beings that are also your pals would probably trip us out too.
But if he decides that Lucifer does deserve to die, and Michael gets in his head… it could end up catastrophic.
Has Eve turned bad? (Picture: Netflix)
Last we saw of the original woman, she was heading out on her own, leaving Maze heartbroken.
After years following the lead of husband Adam, who she was literally made for, and then pining after Lucifer, the sweet but naive character decided she needed to go and find herself for once.
But since she disappeared into the sunset at the end of season four, could she have fallen in with the wrong crowd?
We’re not entirely convinced the killer could be her, but you never know.
When will Ella find out the truth? (Picture: Netflix)
Ella is now the last person not to know Lucifer’s true identity, and as the most religious of the group, the reality that she’s actually besties with the fallen angel, and that everyone else knew about it, could really throw her.
Hell, the news was enough for Dan to try and kill him, so why not Ella?
This one is a long shot, we grant you – Ella is far too pure of heart to try and kill our Lucy, but at the same time, after falling for a serial killer in season five, and her life falling apart, she may turn rogue.
If she doesn’t think she could trust him, would she?
Could Chloe be the end of Lucifer? (Picture: Netflix)
This would be one hell of a bitter pill to swallow, but what if Chloe is the one to take down Lucifer?
As his one true, and massive, love, she has been on side with him this entire time, and was literally a Gift from God that, seemingly, had her destined to be with him.
But her presence also makes him vulnerable to injury in a way that no one else is able to do, and to date we don’t know why.
So if she were to go after him, the chances are she would succeed, and we would be crying into a box of chocolates for about a month.
We wouldn’t be sure, but we can’t rule it out.
The evil character is certainly in the depths of Hell, so will he make a comeback? (Picture: Fox)
Malcolm made a deal with the Devil all the way back in season one, but after threatening Chloe and Trixie’s life, Lucifer went back on the promise, and instead sent him to Hell where he belonged.
He truly deserved it, and we haven’t seen him since, but actor Kevin Rankin, who played the twisted cop, has said he would be up for a return – to ‘end it all’ with Lucifer.
‘I never like to force things… But if it happened naturally and there was a real story they wanted to tell involving Malcolm to end it all? #TeamMalcolm,’ he told Metro.co.uk.
Bent detective Malcolm is one of the few to nearly succeed in murdering our leading man, with Lucifer only making a deal with God to live another day on Earth.
We wouldn’t put it past him biding his time to come up with a way to get rid of him for good.
Mr Said Out B***h

Mr Said Out B***h and his constant run-ins with Lucifer has been a running gag for the show since season two, but season five definitely felt a little final.
After having been killed by a mobster he crossed over for some money, Mr Said Out B***h (real name Lee Garner) is now living in his own personal hell loop for all the wrong he’s done.
While it seemed that he ended up on quite good terms with Lucifer, a couple of centuries in Hell could do a lot to a person, and we’re not quite ready to see the end of him.
Could all of his appearances be leading up to the moment that he’s revealed as the killer of the Ruler of the Underworld?
Lucifer is available on Amazon Prime Video (seasons one to three) and Netflix (seasons four and five).
