We've heard that Dr. Linda Martin (Rachel Harris) will be making a new friend in Lucifer Season 3, and that Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) won't be too happy about that. But how does this budding friendship come about without Maze knowing about it early? That's because she won't be around for the beginning of the season.
Showrunner Ildy Modrovich told EW.com:
"Maze is gone bounty hunting for the first part of the season, i.e. having her child and spending time with her new baby. But when she comes back, she'll find her best friend with this new friend, so she'll be very, very jealous of that because, 'Hey, Linda's her best friend!' so that will be fraught with drama."
We saw how Maze initially took to Lucifer (Tom Ellis) getting close to Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German), which I think was a mix of protectiveness and jealousy. The fact that Maze is jealous of Linda having a new friend should be interesting, but if it turns out to be somebody that might be a threat to Linda, that could turn out to be very very dangerous for this new friend. They've been quiet on exactly who the friend is or what their deal would be — only that it is an "interesting partnership" and "exciting".
Lucifer returns for season 3 on October 2nd on Fox.
