As a result, she betrayed Lucifer, once her close friend, in search of her soul.

Maze was also furious when Lucifer returned to rule over hell without telling her, leaving her behind on Earth.

Speaking to TV Line in August 2020, Lesley-Ann Brandt explained: “Well, like I said, he’s her oldest friend, they’ve been through so much together and she’s come to understand and made space for Chloe, you know?

“But there’s an unspoken rule about betrayals and truths, where you just don’t leave and go back home and not tell your friend.

“You just don’t leave her [on Earth] when her heart is literally split in half if you care about her in the way that she needs you to.

“And that lie about her mother being around, it’s like you’ve kept something from me that I didn’t even know I needed, and I’ve literally had five seconds to digest all of this.

“ So moving forward, there’s definitely tension, and it’s probably the biggest thing that they have to work through as friends.”

She added: “He’s a narcissist, he thinks about himself. He makes decisions without her being a consideration, and she’s literally tired of it.

“She’s bared her heart and soul to him in regards to their relationship, so now she’s basically like, ‘I’m in it for me, and I’m sorry people are going to get hurt but I have to do what I have to do to get what I think I need.’”

At the end of Lucifer season five, part one, time froze and only the celestial beings on Earth were in the present day.

A fight broke out in the middle of the LAPD office between Maze and Michael against Lucifer and Amenadiel (DB Woodside).

The fight was stopped with the arrival of God (Dennis Haysbert) on Earth, who exclaimed “children, I hate it when you fight.” Before the series came to an end.

Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on Maze betraying Lucifer.

One fan tweeted: “When Lucifer & Maze talk to Linda in S2, Lucifer recognizes he hurt Maze’s feelings which could have lead to more understanding but since then there was no real progress between them. Both grew emotionally but their friendship is rather betrayal & ignorant behaviour, it’s annoying..”

A second fan said: “Maze doesn’t get enough attention right now. I’m so sad I just want her to be happy she doesn’t deserve lucifer treating her like he did this season.”

A third fan commented: “I’ve really grown to love and appreciate Mazikeen aka Maze from the show Lucifer! She’s a troubled/complex character with her own inner turmoil, being a demon living on earth, not having a soul. She’s raw, intimidating, and passionate too.”
