Although Lucifer fans rejoiced at Season 5B’s musical episode, full of beloved pop-rock covers, the underlying reason for it was far more sinister than a karaoke party hosted by God.

However, the episode soon revealed God’s misguided belief that he could no longer control his Celestial powers, so he needs to retire.

By the end of the musical episode, and after frustrating the Devil to no end, God visits Lucifer at his penthouse. God then reveals to Lucifer through song that he’s also suffering, as of late, and through Anne Hathaway’s “I Dreamed a Dream,” the father finally tells his son, “I cannot fix you, Lucifer.” However, Lucifer doesn’t want to hear this and tells God to stop controlling him, especially by making him sing.
