Lucifer's Tom Ellis takes bike ride through Hollywood set
Dennis Haysbert’s God is by far one of the most hotly anticipated guest stars in Lucifer history. With the wait for the release of season five’s second half on Netflix hopefully coming to an end soon, fans have been picking up on some potentially revealing clues from the previous series.

‘Lucifans’ have picked up on a hilarious moment from Lucifer’s fifth season which may have foreshadowed a major change for the devil’s dad, God (played by Dennis Haysbert).
With the original slate on Fox currently available on Amazon Prime, long-time fans and newcomers to the series have been able to catch up on the events so far.
When streamers came to one of the show’s most iconic episodes, God Johnson in season two, they spotted an early reference to how God may eventually be portrayed in the series.
During a debate about the true identity of the deluded patient Earl ‘God’ Johnson (Timothy Omundson), Ella Lopez (Aimee Garcia) and Chloe Decker (Lauren German) mockingly recall Joan Osbourne’s hit song One Of Us.

Chloe reaches the lyrics ‘just a stranger on a bus’, prompting an outraged Lucifer (Tom Ellis) to proclaim his dad would never be seen on public transport.
As God is expected to have taken on a human form to visit Lucifer on Earth, fans felt it would make for an amusing callback if the creator of the universe was actually caught travelling by bus in the new season.
One fan on Reddit quoted an original Tumblr post, which said: “Can we please get a shot of God on the bus?
“Like at this point I’m not even asking, I DEMAND the satisfaction of seeing this gif and a parallel of God actually using public transportation.”
Although the sight of Dennis Haysbert’s commanding presence taking a bus ride through Los Angeles would be an innocuous moment for newer viewers, die-hard fans would immediately pick up on the callback to season two.
God’s larger role in the rest of the series is currently unknown, though it’s assumed Lucifer and his estranged dad are due some father-son bonding time.
The much teased guest star turned up for less than a minute at the end of this year’s midseason finale, so the details about his character and how much he’ll factor into part two are still under wraps.
However, there has naturally been a wealth of discussion amongst the fanbase, recently spurred on by a clue from the show’s official Twitter page teasing God will tap into his human side.

If theories are true, God’s possession of a human host, much like his ex-wife Goddess/Charlotte Richards (Tricia Helfer) could give him a new perspective on the mere mortals Lucifer calls his friends.
The sight of the ruler of creation taking a bus downtown is certainly an absurd thought, but could also indicate how his extended stay on Earth has changed him.
One viewer even suggested a further callback to the exchange in season two, by making this the way Ella discovers the truth about Lucifer.
They replied: “You never know… Maybe that’s how Ella finds out.”
Although Lucifer is completely open about his celestial heritage, Ella second guesses his honesty and still believes it’s all an act.
Now the devil’s heavenly father has finally arrived on Earth, it’s becoming harder and harder for the quirky CSI to deny her devilish friend is actually who he says he is.
Season six is currently in production in California, so it’s hoped the second half of season five can finally get underway in the early new year.
Lucifer Season 5, Part 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
