Lucifer Casts Chloe's (Dead) Father — What's His Connection to Maze?

Lucifer Cast Chloe Father

Fox’s Lucifer will shed some light on LAPD detective Chloe Decker’s dark past when new details about her father’s murder — as well as Dad himself? — surface in Season 2.

Chris Payne Gilbert, whose credits include 10 Items or Less and Lifetime’s The Protector, will co-star in the coming season’s seventh episode as John Decker, who back in the day was a beat cop, a good man and even better father. Chloe was a 19-year-old just beginning a movie career when John was killed in the line of duty, sending Chloe on her path to becoming a detective.

Ten years later, when the details of that fateful evening come into question, Chloe will try to give her father the justice he always fought for. Cue flashbacks…?

Oh, and Dad’s connection to Maze? In addition to his on-camera credits, Gilbert is the real-life husband of Lucifer‘s own Lesley-Ann Brandt.
