How did Lucifer season 5 part 1 end?

After being convinced to end his life, Dan shoots Lucifer and Chloe runs to his side. However, Lucifer finds that he's gained his invulnerability and the bullet does him no harm. Dan is shocked to see that Lucifer is the devil and reveals that Lucifer's brother Michael set him up to it.

Chloe is kidnapped while searching for the serial killer and goes missing without a trace, which sends Lucifer on a rampage to find her.

Elle's boyfriend Pete is discovered as the serial killer and when he returns to his home and realises Elle knows, he tries to kill her. However she stabs him and takes him into the police station for questioning.

Lucifer asks Amenadiel to stop time and help him find Chloe, but he reveals that he's unable to because his powers have stopped working.

Amenadiel is concerned that Charlie has a fever and the baby is rushed to the hospital. When it's clear that the baby just has a cold and he will be fine, Michael helps him realise it's no cause for celebration as the baby is a mortal.

Dan and Lucifer talk at the precinct and it becomes clear that Michael has taken Chloe and Dan may know how to find her.

Maze heads to the cave and attacks Michael for kidnapping Chloe, but he convinces her to join his side.

Lucifer and Dan eventually get to the cave and free Chloe. She then talks to Lucifer about their relationship. She asks why Lucifer can't say those "three words" and just before it seems as if he is about to, she ends up being frozen. It turns out that Amenadiel has been able to regain his time-stopping powers but isn't able to fully control them.

Michael - Lucifer's brother, turns up and the pair have a showdown. Maze is also fighting against Lucifer and when Lucifer asks her why, she reveals it's because Michael promised her a soul.

The three spread their wings ad if to engage in battle, but then a mysterious voice tells them to stop. It is clear that God has come down to earth to intervene in the brothers' fight and stop the chaos.
