'Lucifer' Star Aimee Garcia Opens Up About Ella's 'Really Disturbing' Finale Scene

I'm sure it's no surprise to any Lucifer fan that the highly anticipated new season has skyrocketed to the top of the Netflix charts!

Poor Lucifer fans have been on an emotional rollercoaster with the saucy biblical show, but these poor souls can how rest easy as the FIRST eight episodes of the final season are finally in their hands!

The first half of the series' last season was put on Netflix this past Friday and fans took NO TIME to get right to it.

And if you finished all eight episodes, you know how crazy Aimee Garcia's (aka Ella Lopez) finale scene was.

In the mid-season finale, Ella is strangled by her boyfriend Pete after discovering he was the serial killer she, Lucifer and Detective Chloe Decker were tracking down.


Aimee Garcia sat down with Entertainment Weekly back in December to explain that "really disturbing" finale scene.

"What's so beautiful about that episode for me, as an actor, is I get to do something totally different," Aimee told the publication in the recently released interview.

"When I stopped shooting that scene, not only was I bruised up all over my body because we really went for it and I asked him [Koch] to go for it, the secondary crew was like, 'I have PTSD watching the scene.'"

She continued: "Our writer Chris Rafferty just started crying and saying, 'We've never gone this dark on this show.' To have our lightest character have one of the darkest moments is what makes our show really cool."


According to Aimee, both she and Pete, played by Alex Koch, got lost in the intensity of the scene because they were so committed and trusted each other. "His eyes [went] and my eyes were bloodshot. He was like, 'Your eyes got like Inglorious Basterds.I thought I was choking you.' I'm like, 'Well, I thought you were really choking me.'"

"She's fighting for her life. In that moment, I just felt like I was having an out-of-body experience. I don't really remember what happened until later when I'm like, 'Oh my god, my body hurts.'"

Aimee concluded: "To do that kind of visceral, all-in stuff on a genre procedural show is just so juicy and yummy."

I can't wait to see how the second half of the season plays out!
