"The only thing i hate about this ending is how they've treated Trixie," one wrote. "I mean why didn't Lucifer say goodbye to her, why wasn't she there when Chloe died, why did they just ignore her whole existence this season. I hate it."

Someone else said: "I just wish Lucifer also had a goodbye scene with Trixie," and another agreed, writing: "Trixie literally grew up around Lucifer and for her to have no closure with him is just so heartbreaking to think."
