Lucifer season 5 Title Card Tribute: Know Who is crew member Merritt Yohnka

Season five of LUCIFER concluded with a bang, as God's successor was finally revealed to Netflix watchers. Before the titles played, a heartfelt title card to Merritt Yohnka was revealed, demonstrating how much the Lucifer family behind the scenes means to one another.

The season five finale of Lucifer could not have been more momentous, as Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) battled his twin brother Michael (also Ellis) for God's top seat. The fighting twin brothers squared up in a bone-crushing contest to decide who would succeed their father (Dennis Haysbert) after he stepped down.The finale was additionally significant since it was dedicated to Merritt Yohnka, the show's late stunt coordinator.

Yohnkha, who was born on April 1, 1958, died on September 16, 2020, at the age of 62.

Since the season three opening, They're Back, Aren't They?, the Emmy-winning stunt coordinator had worked on Lucifer for the better part of three years, offering his talents behind the scenes.

His resume also includes stunt work on Netflix Original series Love, Freeform's Pretty Little Liars, and the action-packed blockbuster Taken 3.

Several members of Lucifer's cast and crew, including fellow stuntman Simon Rhee, paid tribute to Yohnka at the time of his death.

“Rest well in Heaven my good friend Merritt,” he penned on Instagram. “Just wanted to tell you again how much we all love you!”

Lucifer paid a tribute of its own with a title card after season five, episode 16, titled A Chance At a Happy Ending which simply read: “In memory of Merrit Yohnka. 1958-2020.."

The season five finale had a lot of unexpected twists and turns, especially when it was revealed that Lucifer will take over as God.
