One of the most interesting and fun characters in Lucifer is Dr. Linda Martin (Rachel Harris), who joined the show in the pilot as a psychiatrist that was treating a murder victim and she was…overly interested in Lucifer (Tom Ellis). When Lucifer decided he needed to see a therapist, he went to Linda in exchange for some…favors. But this turned into a serious Doctor-Patient relationship, but it also lead to Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) going to see her and them becoming friends…and then Lucifer eventually showing her that his comments about being the son of God wasn't a metaphor, when he showed her his true face.
This poor woman was pulled into a matter of Angels & Demons and was struggling to cope with it. And then she was attacked by Lucifer's mother Charlotte in the finale. She won't be able to deal with that very well either, and eventually realizes she needs to see someone about it. Executive producer Ildy Modrovich told EW.com:
"Because she's a therapist, she thinks she knows how to handle trauma. But the problem is, she doesn't have somebody else on the other side; there's nobody to sit in the chair across from her, so she's dealing with it herself at first. She finally realizes she needs somebody to sit in the proverbial chair for her, so she seeks out an interesting partnership, a new friendship, that will be very exciting."
And as no surprise, Maze is not going to be happy about Linda having a new friend.
Lucifer Season 3 premieres October 2nd on Fox.
