Season 6 of Lucifer stole its storyline from The Flash

One of the major shocks in Lucifer’s last season was a new character who was secretly Chloe and Lucifer’s daughter from the future, a la The Flash. Nora West-Allen, Barry Allen’s daughter from 30 years in the future, was first introduced in season 5 of The Flash. Despite the similarities in plot twists, the people and their reasons for travelling back in time to find their fathers were entirely different.

Storyline Of Lucifer

Following his father’s retirement, Lucifer season 6 began with the former ruler of Hell trying to enjoy his final days on Earth before ascending to the throne of Heaven and becoming God. These intentions were put on hold when Lucifer was approached by a teenage angel named Rory (Brianna Hildebrand) who had murder on her mind.

Lucifer began checking up on every woman he had ever been with who later had a daughter of about the right age after she claimed Lucifer had fathered her and abandoned her and her mother, prompting Lucifer to begin checking up on every woman he had ever been with who later had a daughter of about the right age.

It wasn’t until the young angel confronted Chloe that it was revealed that she was Chloe and Lucifer’s daughter, and that she had developed the ability to travel through time shortly after Chloe’s death in the future, after becoming outraged that Lucifer couldn’t be bothered to show himself even in Chloe’s final moments of life.

Flash Storyline

The concept of a time-traveling daughter was also a big aspect of season 5 of The Flash. Nora West-Allen (Jessica Parker Kennedy) accidentally unleashed a butterfly effect when she travelled back from the year 2049 to help her father in his battle with the Thinker.

As a result, she was unable to return to her time. Barry Allen got to know his daughter who grew up without him over the season’s events, before she was revealed to be a tool of the Reverse-Flash and a part of his strategy to release himself from the jail where he was confined during her time.

Same Ideas In Different Ways

Another significant difference is that Rory had no idea how she was able to travel through time; she assumed it was due to her anger and desire to murder her deadbeat father, which led her to him at the last place she knew he was on Earth.

Nora, on the other hand, was more in control of her powers and understood the theory of time travel at super-speed, even if she no longer had the velocity to do it. While it’s unlikely that the story aspect was intended as an homage, it’s still fascinating to see how Lucifer and The Flash approached the same concept in different ways.
