Lucifer sticks a pitchfork into its first-season finale Monday and there could be hell to pay for a certain someone who has snatched up a kid very close to our anti-hero (unbeating?) heart. Here, star Tom Ellis 'fesses up to what we should expect, including what we know to be a sinfully fun final-seconds twist.

So last week's episode saw Lucifer fed up with mankind and ready to head back to Hell. 
But then the way the finale plays out, it doesn’t end like that.

Did you guys know while filming the season finale that you were coming back?
No, not at all. It was interesting because when we were shooting the finale... When I read it I was like, “Ugh I really hope we get another season 'cause this is juicy!” Yeah so we didn’t know and now, I’m very excited.

From what I have seen, the first half of the episode features these great pairings of  you and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), and Chloe (Lauren German) and Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) working together. Theses are not alliances that I thought we’d see in the first season.
No, and the reason why I love the finale so much is we finally get an opportunity for some of our characters to interact with each other. And you see onscreen the dynamic that it creates is really entertaining and really fun.

"Did someone say season-finale cliffhanger?"

Do we find out why Chloe’s closeness affects him so much?
No we don’t. We don’t get that, but there’s a far more shocking thing that happens. I’m super excited about how we leave it at the end of the season.

Now that you have a second season, do you think they will give us some glimpse of what life in Hell was like?
Ah-ha! Well continue watching and you might actually see that. [Laughs]
