Was That A Blooper On ‘Lucifer’ That I Just Saw?

Tom Ellis and Lauren German shine in the hit show Lucifer. The show attempts to turn the ancient story around where Lucifer is the victim and his father, God is the bad guy who doesn’t listen and manipulates the entire universe. Even though the show is a top notch piece of work on FOX, it has its flaws.

A real bruiser of a blooper can be found in Episode 4, Season 2 called “Lady Parts.” In the episode, Lucifer sets up a girls’ night out for Chloe, the detective played by Lauren. Of course Maze, Linda, and the new girl Ella were invited.

It was going good until Chloe spotted a club stamp on a guy, evidence in her case. The guy’s girlfriend thinks something’s up and that leads to an altercation where the whole bar is fighting. Maze is as bad as she always is trying to protect the girls from flying furniture and blind punches. But, Chloe still ends up getting hit a few times before she finally gains control of the fight.

The scars she takes on become extremely interesting when they seem to move around her face. That’s right! I caught an oversight that I can only offer two explanations for why the blooper would have occurred. But first, take a look and see for yourself.

It’s back above her right eye. There are only two reasonable explanations that I can come up with at first and I actually debunked one of them.

I’ll start with the one I debunked. I thought by some absentminded focus that a flipped scene had been cut into the movie. What I mean by that is footage that is flipped horizontally for some reason. What is supposed to be on the right is now on the left.

But, that explanation didn’t fly because the rest of the office is the same. The desk is on their right. The wall is on their left, which is the way it would be in the direction the camera is facing. So, that excuse doesn’t pan out at all.

The easiest explanation then is the makeup artist. They simply applied the makeup on the wrong side and didn’t think anything of it. What a blooper! Got to be more careful than that. It could ruin a show if constant mistakes keep jerking the fans out of the scene.

But, here’s the thing that got me most about this particular episode. An ongoing joke is about how Dan looks like a cop. Chloe says so. Of course, Lucifer says so. Even Amenadiel agrees. So then, how did they get into the illegal party they were supposed to attend to get information about the murders?

When Dan walks up to the bartender, he tries to run. When asked why, he says because it’s obvious Dan looks like a cop. So, why didn’t the security outside stamping people notice? Why didn’t anyone else notice? This was an illegal sex party and no one said a word about the obvious cop except for the bartender? Did they overlook that important detail too?

When you like a show, you might not be looking for the bloopers. You might even let them pass when you subconsciously pick up on them. But, don’t do that! Be a real fan and point out every single one of them. Hollywood loves that!

Watch the episode for yourself! Lucifer
