When his mother (Tricia Helfer) escaped Hell, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) was terrified of the destruction she might wreak. But when Lucifer picks up in Season 2, the fallen angel is shocked to discover Mom isn’t out for revenge after all.
Although Mom truly has good intentions for her relationships with Lucifer and Amenadiel (DB Woodside), that doesn’t mean she isn’t up to something even the devil would shake his head at. “She definitely has a dislike for humanity, so she’s not too happy that she’s stuck in an earthly skin sack, as she calls them. And going forward, she would definitely step on anyone who’s in her way or trying to stop her from going forward with her agenda — and she definitely does have an agenda,” the actress explains.
“As this season progresses, we’ll see more of what that is and it’s in keeping with wanting to get back what she lost. She lost her family. She lost her life. She lost her home. So she definitely wants that back, so there is an agenda on Mom’s part.”
“Could that turn violent?” Helfer adds. “Absolutely.”
To learn more about what Mom’s life on earth looks like — plus, what we should expect of Lucifer’s other brother, Uriel — check out everything else Helfer revealed about Lucifer’s second season below:
Lucifer and Mom think they know everything about each other, when they really don’t know each other at all anymore. What will surprise Lucifer and Mom the most about each other as they spend all this time together?
What is Mom’s opinion of Chloe (Lauren German) and her relationship with Lucifer?
Amenadiel is going through a lot of problems of his own this season. How will Mom factor into that storyline?
What can you reveal about the introduction of Uriel and how he shakes up the family dynamic?
Does Mom have a favorite son? And if so, who is it?
Given that Lucifer is her favorite son, how will Mom react when she learns that he brokered a deal with God to send her back to Hell?
Mom is in the body of a human, Charlotte Richards, who had a whole life and family of her own before she died. Will we see Mom step into Charlotte’s identity?
Sparks will fly when Lucifer brings the title character’s mom into the fold in season two.
“It’s given us a little piece of dynamite that we’ve given to the cast and exploded everything,” showrunner Joe Henderson told the crowd at the Fox drama’s Comic-Con panel Saturday.
Lucifer’s first season ended with the title character being fatally shot, and then resurrected by God. However, in exchange for his life, Lucifer promised God he would recapture a soul that had escaped from Hell — the soul of his mother.
“We had all these conversations about Lucifer family. … The big revelation we had midway through season one was: what about mom?” Henderson said. “That became a big piece of it that we hadn’t originally planned for.”
Playing Lucifer’s “nemesis/nurturer” mother as Henderson described the role is new series regular Tricia Helfer.
“The introduction of mom brings a whole new dynamic to the show,” star Tom Ellis said, saying the characters “behave differently” when she resurfaces. “You see the formidable characters be really not so formidable.”
The introduction of mom also further complicates the brotherly relationship Lucifer and Amenadiel. “I think we both have a different relationship with her. I think she’s going to come in the middle of that and play with that a little bit,” D.B. Woodside said
Added Helfer: “Mom kind of does try to smooth things over and get in the middle of it a little bit.”
One person mom will definitely clash with is Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt). “There is no love lost between Maze and mom,” Helfer teased.

With a masterful magician’s stroke, USA Network’s drama series SUITS managed to surprise viewers last week by introducing Evan Smith (), who everyone thought was going to be another one of Harvey’s (Gabriel Macht) romantic liaisons — but to everyone’s dismay — Evan proved a worthy adversary and managed to get the drop on Harvey by producing a video tape placing Donna (Sarah Rafferty) in a precarious legal position and threatening to turn Donna into the District Attorney’s office. It was as if SUITS were giving a sly nod to ’s days as a Cylon on the series BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, where she played a wolf in sheep’s clothing and proved that a beautiful woman should never be under-estimated.
In an exclusive interview,talked about her guest-starring role and getting the drop on Harvey, as well as reuniting with her former co-star Patrick Adams.
You seem to be the woman of the hour right now with such a juicy role on SUITS. What initially drew you to the role of Evan Smith?
When you read about the role and it said you would be playing the female-version of Harvey Specter, did you go, “Wait? I supposed to play what?!”
Even so, Harvey sometimes travels a slippery-slope in the legal realm. Maybe you were thinking, “hey, that’s not me!”
How do you see your character Evan? Who is she?
Would Evan actually stand behind her threat to turn in Donna to the DA’s office? That’s a really big thing to pull.
Uh oh. So Evan is a bit of a shark.
The show teased initially that there might be a romantic relationship between Evan and Harvey. Is that a possibility or is that off the table at this point?
How does Evan see Harvey? Does she just see him as the competition? What’s going through her head?
What was it like working in your scenes with Gabriel Macht?
Having worked with Patrick before, what was it like working with him this time as a director?
You may have also crossed paths with Gina Torres, who plays Jessica on the show. Did you two have a chance to compare notes coming from a similar TV background — playing iconic women on iconic sci-fi shows?
Fans would have loved that. That would have been super fun.
Assuming you’re not going to be regular on SUITS, what are you doing next?
You are also very passionate about your charity work. Is there something upcoming that fans can look forward to like with Acting Outlaws?
If you could offer any teasers for the fans about tonight’s new episode of SUITS, how would you describe it?
Will Evan stick to her guns or will she want to work with them?
To see whether Donna will end up taking a bullet for the team or whether Evan will find a better way to win her case, be sure to tune in for tonight’s all new episode of SUITS at 10:00 p.m. on USA Network.
