What happened when Lucifer (Tom Ellis) needed a vacation from Hell? Well, in Fox’s new drama, LUCIFER, he went to Los Angeles, opened a bar, and avoided the call to return.

But when an acquaintance of Lucifer’s gets killed he finds himself drawn into the investigation to find her killer. And with that, he has a new calling, of sorts: thanks to his uncanny ability to draw out secrets — and his newfound fascination with Chloe, a detective who is immune to his ways — he decides to consult with the LAPD.

“For me, we were starting at a point where it was a character that, yes, everyone knows, but it could be a different world, at the beginning of a redemption story,” Ellis told reporters on the show’s Vancouver set (in the video below). “And this was like the ultimate redemption story; the most irredeemable character, how could he find redemption? And so that was my take on it.”

Though the devil could be a super serious character, “I just wanted it to be a fun take on it,” he continued. “And he likes to have fun with people. And that was a huge selling point for me, and a huge kind of thing I tapped into, really: I didn’t want to be Mr. Evil.”

Check out more from Ellis in the video below, as he discuses playing a recognizable figure, how the show is handling its comic origin, and more…

THE 100’s Clarke (Eliza Taylor) has endured a lot during her time on the ground, but the decision to sacrifice the people of Mount Weather to save the people she cares about weighs heavily on her.

“She’s pretty messed up over Mount Weather,” Taylor told reporters on the show’s Vancouver set in the video below. “She obviously left because she wasn’t able to face her demons, wasn’t able to deal with what she’s done. So she’s in a state of pure survival mode. She’s just out in the woods. It’s all about hunting and finding somewhere dry to sleep. Just trying to survive.”

But what will it take for Clarke to forgive herself? “It’s going to be a long and hard journey,” she said. “She’s…in a pretty dark place; I think it’s going to take a lot of time for her to kind forgive herself and for other people to forgive her as well.”

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW kicks off tonight on The CW, and many of the faces taking center stage are familiar to fans of ARROW and THE FLASH: Sara/White Canary (Caity Lotz); Ray/Atom (Brandon Routh); Stein (Victor Garber) and Jax (Franz Drameh), AKA Firestorm; Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller); Mick/Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell); Kendra/Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée); Carter/Hawkman (Falk Hentschel); and baddie Vandal Savage (Casper Crump).

But there is one new face in the series, and he’s who ties the mismatched group of heroes and villains together — Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill). Rip gathers the team together to take down Vandal, and the chase (throughout the world and time) is on.

Terra IncognitaPERSON OF INTEREST fantastic fourth season (which is, finally, streaming on Netflix) dove deeper into the dueling artificial intelligences_, but one of the finest hours was decidedly human: “Terra Incognita,” as a dying Reese (Jim Caviezel) hallucinated a do-over with Carter (Taraji P. Henson).

“This felt like a great way to put those characters back together again, and get the opportunity for them to have a last goodbye, from their perspective,” PERSON OF INTEREST creator Jonathan Nolan said at the time.

Caviezel pointed to the hour as a particularly important one for Reese. “Last year, during the scene in the car with Carter where he doesn’t realize he has all these protective things around him — he was devastated by the loss,” he shared late last year on the set of the show’s upcoming fifth season. “He was in love with her. But because he’s so good — like special operators can do, they can separate heart and mind. They can compartmentalized so much that when he lost Carter, he never realized that he loved her. And very deeply. That loss, he’ll never get that back. In human behavior, he starts to play a new kind tape in his head, that this is what really happened, when it didn’t happen that way. Now, it gives him a purpose [going forward].”
