Lucifer Morningstar’s Tom Ellis has revealed what is the final episode of the new series is and fans will have to wait until part two to see it.

His favourite episode is episode 11 of Lucifer part two, titled Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam.

The episode will be a little different as it is a full musical episode and will even feature a cover of a Queen song.

Speaking to Collider this year, Ellis revealed the musical episode and the 1940s adventure from part one were his favourite instalments of Lucifer so far.

He said: “Well, you’re basically just asking me about my two favourite episodes of Lucifer.

“I’m so excited. Ildy [Modrovich], one half of our showrunning team, has wanted to do a musical episode for a long time.

“It was season five, [which was going to be] our final season, so we definitely needed to try to do that.

“I’ve always wanted to do it, but I’ve also been of the mind that there needs to be a reason that people are singing as opposed to it’s just a gimmicky episode.

“And the beauty of it was that we found the perfect reason for it, and not only made it service the episode, in terms of where the music comes from.”

Ellis also teased the musical episode will see Lucifer finally confront the several issues with his father God (played by Dennis Haysbert).

Since season one, one of the show’s major conflicts is between Lucifer and his father, who kicked him out of Heaven and into Hell.

He said: “But aside from the music, the readthrough of the episode was one of the most emotional and funny readthroughs that we’ve ever had.

“And that was without any of the musical numbers in it. As an episode, it’s just so packed with everything.

“There’s a lot to do with Lucifer and his father in it. It’s great.

“There are so many memorable moments from it, I felt like I’d won a competition, every day that I turned up to work. Because it was like living out my dream.

“We were doing all of these big dance numbers and it was fantastic. Everyone was really buzzing, when we were doing that.

“We had so much fun, I can’t even tell you. It was illegal, how much fun we had.”

Part one of Lucifer season five featured a musical performance from Maze star Lesley-Ann Brandt.

Episode four titled It Never Ends Well For the Chicken was filmed entirely in black-and-white and set in the 1940s.

Ellis also told Collider the noir episode was another favourite of his.

Speaking about getting to sing in the show’s black-and-white episode to TVLine, Brandt said: “I was really happy to sink my teeth into something different, because while they’re related, obviously it’s a different period, and they sound different, and how they move is very different.

“Like, Lilith is way more feline in her movements whereas Maze is a bit of a bulldozer so to be able to take on that period and the language and obviously sing was a lot of fun. I love a challenge.”
