I bailed on this when Lucifer became a rock star and only went back to watch it fully during the summer lulls.
I was quite surprised the Men of Letters actually got a big story chunk in the middle and the usual angel squabbles got sidelined. I quite enjoyed that arc, new characters and the lack of the usual was refreshing. Not as many funny or concept episodes this season though and the new writers that came up with dated clunkers like the goat killer didn't help.
By the time Lucifer came back the show fell into the old patterns. Cass dies, again. Lucifer is trapped somewhere tormenting a Winchester, again. All the new female characters are killed, again. Dead Bobby reappers, again. Another child is born and magically becomes an adult, again.
Hopefully with Crowley definitely gone and Castiel dead (again) the show can get away from the repetitive angel stories, cheap angel sword scenes, magic that is basically throwing people around with telekinetic hand waving and get back down to Earth. Maybe introduce a cool and fun new recurring character who isn't murdered in two episodes.
