New episode, new review! Lucifer 6×06 “A Lot Dirtier Than That” deals with the problem of racism prevailing in our society and the Black Lives Matter movement in a brilliant way while showing us father and daughter trying to find a middle ground. Time for review!
Here we go!
In Lucifer 6×06 “A Lot Dirtier Than That” Chloe and Rory start living together … or something like that. It is strange, difficult and complicated for Chloe to get used to the idea that an adult, her daughter of all people, is going to share space with her and that she knows absolutely everything about the house she lives in. Rory lived a life with her that Chloe doesn’t know, and still feels like a stranger to her.
Chloe knows this feeling, this familiar thing that she feels when she looks into Rory’s eyes and, at the same time, it’s strange that she is really there. But to all this a new feeling is added: shame. Chloe let Lucifer blame her daughter for the theft of the necklace. Here, Chloe takes a big step by so openly acknowledging the boundary she crossed and apologizing to Rory for losing control in such a way.
But Rory has nothing to forgive her for. She… is grateful for her mother. Chloe took care of her, loved her, was there when she needed her, now she screwed up and made a mistake but for her that is a tiny detail compared to everything Chloe did for her. She is not like him, she is not like Lucifer, he did not even have the opportunity to screw things up with her, to make mistakes, because he was not there.
