A fan asked Mark if it’s weird she felt bad for Nick when Lucifer was gone, and understood why he wanted him back.
Is it weird? Yes! I’m sorry… poor Nick! I think Nick was an innocent victim and he became enamoured of the power that he felt — and he thought there was a relationship there. The sad thing about Lucifer and Nick is it’s an unrequited relationship. He’s in love. He wants the honeymoon. And Lucifer’s using him. God, Lucifer. Such a bad guy. So yeah, I did feel badly for Nick. He never got his honeymoon and he so wanted it.

He rejected her for Lucifer. He had the opportunity to get closure and to save her from an eternity of being a ghost, like walking around in limbo stuck on the earth, and he turned it down because he wanted Lucifer more. He rejected her for Lucifer.
