Kevin Alejandro who plays Detective Daniel "Dan" Espinoza in Lucifer donned the director's hat once again for the show. But this time, he directed the epic mid-season finale episode of season five titled 'Spoiler Alert'. The further sentence is indeed a SPOILER ALERT! In the episode, we see Lucifer and his twin brother Michael (both played by Tom Ellis) fighting against each other in a frozen moment. They are joined by Amenadiel (DB Woodside) and Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt).

Now during an interaction with an international publication, Kevin shared his thoughts on directing the much-anticipated midseason finale (which was the best part of the whole season). Talking about the fighting sequence, Kevin stated, "It was a three-day monster to put this whole fight together. But once we all agreed what it was going to look like — You know, we took screenshots of everything we needed and it was just a big giant puzzle on a bunch of boards and we would just check off the list. “Okay, we got this shot. We got that.” It was a beast, but we freaking did it."

On being quizzed about shooting Tom for both Lucifer and Michael characters, Kevin said, "We did it in such a way that on one day, we tried to shoot everything [with] Tom as Lucifer, and only shoot that stuff. Then the next day, Tom came back as Michael, so he didn’t have to worry about switching the characters on and off. That seemed to do us some justice as far as the scheduling goes."

He added, "There were a couple overlaps where Tom [spent] half the day as Lucifer, and then came back after lunch and [did] everything as Michael. We were very specific about the types of shots that we needed so we weren’t overworking Tom, first of all. The challenge was that Tom had injured himself right before we started the big fight scene, and so he needed a few days of recovery. That actually gave us an additional few days to really, really hammer out the shooting plan. So, it was a blessing in disguise."
