WHY DIDN’T SEASON 6 OF “LUCIFER” HAVE A HAPPY END?
In a new interview with TV Guide, co-showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson clarified why they avoided a happy ending. For them the bond of Chloe and Lucifer it transcended a more traditional conclusion like a wedding. Furthermore, they felt that a bittersweet goodbye was more appropriate than an overwhelmingly happy goodbye.
“Much of the show is about choice and free will versus fate,” Modrovich said. “At the end of the series, Lucifer really realizes that they are linked. We choose our path and that becomes our destination. I guess the same can be said for our participation in the show. Strange things happened along the way [pero] I feel like every kind of setback the show has had, it’s been a really great thing in the end. And it has taken the program in a direction that perhaps it would not have gone. “
Modrovich added: “The difference between [Deckerstar] and another couple is that we had immortality to play with. So we knew that they would be together forever, no matter what. And we like to reside in the bittersweet and gray areas. A resounding happy ending just felt bad, but also somewhat tragic. So the end was our sweet spot in making them sacrifice something, but they finally ended up together. “
Additionally, Henderson explained the need for an adult Rory: “For me, it was because we wanted Lucifer to face himself. And what better way for the eternal adolescent to face that and have this rebellious young man represent him in a very different way? You know, the rebellious young woman who’s mad at her father. We really wanted to lean on the parallel of Lucifer becoming like his father and having to deal with a different version of himself having to understand what his father was like, but also seeing himself from a completely different perspective. “Lucifer and Chloe ended up together, but not in the way fans expected (Photo: Netflix) PUT 1xbet
