Some of Lucifer’s most devastating moments occurred well before the popular urban fantasy found a successful new home on streaming service Netflix. Back when the series was wrapping up its original three season run on Fox, a major Amenadiel (played by D.B. Woodside) moment led to some unexpected production issues.
The death of Charlotte Richards (Tricia Helfer) at the end of Lucifer’s third season originally looked a lot different, director Claudia Yarmy claims.
In an interview with Music In the Dark, Yarmy shared some of the highs and lows of working on the show’s short lived run on original network, Fox.
The director has remained a part of the series up until Lucifer’s most recent season, and has also contributed to All Rise on CBS and an episode of The CW’s Riverdale.
During her recent discussion, Yarmy recalled some of the complications that arose on her third directing credit for the series, ‘Quintessential Deckerstar’.
She explained: “We got through the first part of that sequence up to when Charlotte gets shot, and then a huge fog rolled in.
“It was literally a wall of fog that you could barely see through.”
Some unexpected weather almost threw production for a loop during the shooting of one of the series’ most pivotal sequences so far.
Initially intended as the penultimate episode of the season, the finale was then followed by two bonus episodes which were filmed before Lucifer’s first cancellation.
Near the end of Lucifer’s final outing on Fox, Marcus Pierce (Tom Welling) reveals himself as the Biblical Cain, and turns on Amenadiel to try and reclaim his Mark.
Their confrontation ended in tragedy as the resurrected Charlotte Richards, who had previously been possessed by Goddess, threw her now mortal body in front of the impenetrable angel.
Amenadiel’s tragic experience triggered the return of his wings, which he used to carry Charlotte’s soul up to Heaven.
Unfortunately, production was stalled by the weather and filming on the crucial scene was unable to continue until the fog dispersed.

Instead, Yarmy and the team decided to jump ahead to the tragic final moments of the episode, in which Charlotte’s body is discovered.
Rather than looking towards the view of the fog, the episode ended with a montage of Lucifer (Tom Ellis), Chloe (Lauren Decker) and Dan (Kevin Alejandro) arriving at the scene.
Her soul having been taken to the Silver City, Yarmy’s last minute compromise helped Dan’s discovery of his girlfriend’s body feel even more crushing.
She then explained that the crew were able to return a week later to finish the scene without the intrusive fog getting in the way of Charlotte’s emotional death scene.
Despite the behind the scenes trouble, this sequence nevertheless had a huge impact on the rest of the series.
Dan has continued to blame himself for Charlotte’s murder into Lucifer’s fourth and fifth instalments on Netflix.
After finally discovering the devil’s true identity in season five, Dan briefly let his inner darkness consume him when he confronted Lucifer on behalf of his devious twin brother, Michael.
Now Michael’s plans have been exposed and their father, God (Dennis Haysbert) has finally made himself known, fans are more eager than ever for the series’ still unannounced return.
Lucifer Season 5, Part 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
