So after being told that this season's stories would be smaller and more personal, we get Lucifer in the White House? That's not small and personal to me, but what do I know? It looks like the gang's all here, Crowley, Cas, Rowena and Sam and Dean. I'm actually guessing they didn't spend the money to make a White House set, so this may take place in a Camp David like setting? What do you take from all this information? Are you looking forward to Lucifer jumping bodies again? Do you think he will take over the President? Or will he just make some kind of deal that gives him access? What kind of destruction will Lucifer reap? Let us know in the comments or in the discussion thread for episode 8.
 
 This just in from EW

The most interesting part for me.

As showrunner Andrew Dabb puts it: “We’ve always really focused on humanizing Lucifer as a character, and really explaining where he’s coming from and how he has a point of view that is not 100 percent wrong. It’s not that he’s a good guy necessarily, but I think he’s a very understandable character. There’s part of Lucifer that is extremely prideful — that’s the classic Biblical ‘pride of the devil’ thing — but there’s also a part of him that’s incredibly insecure because here’s this guy that was rejected by his father. Going into the president is a way for him to have power, create destruction, but also get away from being himself.” 

 

It’s an idea that wasn’t an immediate hit in the writers’ room but one that Singer says he and Dabb were convinced they could make work in an episode that he thinks turned out to be “really cool.” But all of this isn’t to say that Sam and Dean are heading to Washington, D.C. As much as Dabb and Singer loved the POTUS idea, they drew the line at breaking into the White House. “When Sam and Dean encounter the president, he’s in Indianapolis, he’s in the middle of a fundraising swing,” Dabb says. “It still allows us to explore the president, his aides, his security detail — all that acts as nice things for Lucifer to play off of and really strong obstacles for Sam and Dean.”
 
So someone on staff said "you're freaking kidding us, right?" It sounds like the Lucifer saga will continue and intertwine with the BMOL. What do you think? Does this ound good or bad?
