A new Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 poster has been revealed, and it teases the Lord of Darkness in a wicked face-off with his "twin." The poster finds Lucifer actor Tom Ellis in a mirrored showdown with himself, one part "sin" and the other part "sinner." The poster also features the release date for the new episodes: May 28. [Please Note: Spoilers below for Season 5 of Lucifer.]
Previously in the series, Lucifer was revealed to have a twin brother, Michael, who is hellbent on causing chaos and sowing discord among his brethren. After much infighting between Lucifer, Michael, Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), and even Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt), the brothers' father, God (Dennis Haysbert), shows up and says to them, "Children, you know I hate it when you fight." This is where Season 5 Part 1 left off, setting the stage for a whole new realm of issues for the ethereal family.
