The Would-Be Prince of Darkness - S1-E3

Plot hole: During the credits, Chloe said of the victim "coroner puts her time of death between 1 and 3am", and she does indeed ask Ty's obsessive fan / ex-gf where has she been during that timeframe. When she looks at the security tape, the timecode starts rolling at 22:18 and goes on "for 3 hours." That does not account for the time of the murder at all, she has no alibi for the second half of the suspected timeframe! Not to mention, she said she saw Ty kiss the victim. When could she possibly have seen that? It's unlikely that before 10pm Ty was already drunk and getting randy with the girl, with the house full of guests. (00:25:00)

Lady Parts - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Chloe has a bruise on her left eyebrow and a cut on her right after the fight in the bar, but when she grabs Lucifer's phone the cut and bruise have swapped sides on her face, and then when she storms off they go back to their original sides. (00:30:48 - 00:31:30)

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Chloe is being debriefed by her ex about the crime scene. There's a close-up of the photographer who will be the key of the case, being physically pushed away by a policeman. The scene goes on with him in the background in many shots, all on his own, snapping away as if nothing happened. (00:08:55)

Pilot - S1-E1

Other mistake: Throughout the episode, Lucifer's car has a California license plate - but that is, just one. He is missing the one in the front. In the following episode the car does have the regular 2 plates, and when he is pulled over at the beginning (and keeps being around cops all the time), nobody raises an eyebrow at the violation of the code.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Lucifer shows Chloe the handcuffs he freed himself from, in the first shot one of them is open and the other locked, while in the second, both cuffs have been unlocked. (00:20:00)

They're Back, Aren't They? - S3-E1

Audio problem: When the cops draw their Glocks, they make a cocking sound. Glocks are striker fired, there are no safeties or hammers on the exterior to manually operate for the handgun to make a noise. (00:03:20)

Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil. - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: At the beginning, the preacher is walking around with the donation mug. The first kid to put a few bucks in does it across two shots and has a very notable yellow hand-held device when he puts the money in that was not there in the first shot. (00:02:00)

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: During the scene in the school corridor with Lucifer sitting down and talking to Chloe's daughter, the same extras keep doing erratic back-and-forth for no reason (for instance the girl with a white jacket and pink shoulder bag) or just plain wrong (the kid with the horizontal striped maroon sweater who walks twice past Lucifer early in the convo). (00:24:50 - 00:25:50)

Stewardess Interruptus - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: When Chloe tells Lucifer that her main priority is the case and that nothing is going to happen between them, her hair on the right side of her face tucks itself behind her right ear between shots. It then falls down again, then tucks itself once more.


#TeamLucifer - S1-E12

Character mistake: When trying to decipher what the letters from the dermal implants spell, Lucifer rearranges the letters and says "Hilii Fircus, it means 'children of the goat.'" However, the correct phrase was Filii Hircus, not Hilii Fircus. (00:13:27)

A Devil of My Word - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Lucifer says that Amenadiel has a crazy theory that explains a whole list of things, but then doesn't say what the theory is. Pierce says "And you believe that?" as though it made perfect sense. But there's at least half a sentence missing. (00:02:50)

The Good, the Bad, and the Crispy - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Lucifer is sending his mum to her new world, he is standing for the whole scene. They show a shot of Charlotte collapsed on the beach, and in the same shot, you see Lucifer on his knees in the sand. The very next shot, he is standing again. You only ever see him fallen on his knees when time starts back up again and the detectives realise where they are, which is a bit later. (00:37:25)

Dan: I don't know whether to laugh or to shoot you.
Lucifer: Surprise me.

Devil Is as Devil Does - S4-E7

Trivia: When Eve is looking at the wanted posters, some of the names on the posters are "Anita Brown", "Eddie Beasley", and "John Ailetcher." Beasley was a prop assistant, Brown was a set costumer, and Ailetcher was a production sound mixer on "Lucifer."


More trivia for Lucifer

Pilot - S1-E1

Question: Lucifer is shot at by Jimmy Barnes 6 times but suffers no harm while Chloe is in the same room, but later episodes show he is not immortal when she is near. What's the deal?

Answer: As Cain theorises in a later episode, it's Chloe's love, not presence. This early on, Chloe had no strong feelings for Lucifer, so had no effect on his immortality. In fact even more recently he's back to being invulnerable around her after speculation that he chose to let himself be vulnerable. So while there's a degree of flexibility / retconning going on, it's all explained in-show.
