He hires Maze to find Amenadiel while he works to cover up the murder. Unfortunately, Ella finds the cleaning company Charlotte hired and Chloe confronts Lucifer about letting his personal problems interfere with work. Amenadiel refuses to reassemble the Blade, citing renewed loyalty to his Father. Charlotte escapes, apparently kills one of the cleaners, and forces Linda to reveal Lucifer's plan.

While attending one of Bobby's shows, Lucifer storms the stage and accidentally shoots him with a gun hidden in a hand puppet. It turns out that Bobby did steal the jokes, and wanted to be fired from the show. Pierce warns Lucifer that the "sinner man" is real, and killed someone close to him during his previous posting in Chicago. Lucifer and Dan run a sting operation, netting an old friend of Bobby's who reveals that the dead man was working on a new set with Sheila, Bobby's warm-up act. They find and arrest her, and Pierce makes an agreement with Lucifer to find the "sinner man" so long as he keeps Chloe out of it.
