According to US

Rick is Vince Vincente, a Rock Star.  And even though the ver beginning does have somewhat of a Hard to Hold feel (starting on stage, getting off stage and wiping his face with a towel), the similary quickly ends.
Vince has never gotten over the death of his wife, Jen.  Then, after a concert, weird things are happening in his room, a breeze and some strange electrical happenings. As he's washing his face, blood comes out of the faucet, although it appears to be an illusion because as he steps out, no blood on his face.  Vince is shook, to say the least.  As more strange things happens, he tries to call the front desk. As he locks himself in another room, to avoid the flying pictures, etc, his dead wife appears.  He thinks she's a ghost but she tells him she's an angel. She tells him they can be together and she can get rid of his pain if he'll only do one thing, "Invite Me In".  He says yes.  In the meantime, Crowley is looking for Lucifer, and enlists Rowena to help in  She does not want to get involved, but really has no choice.  When Rick's bandmate checks on him, he notices that he's a little dressed up for rehearsal and he informs him that he can't make it to rehearsal. The red eyes come out, and then all hell brakes loose.  He did say he had other plans. Lucifer has taken over.  This is where the start of my all time favorite acting role of Rick's begins. Not a fan of heartbroken Vince, big fan of Sacarsitic Lucifer.
Vince (who is now Lucifer) finds Crowley, walks up to him and says "They told me you'd be here.  Get off my furniture squater".  He then says "you're either mad, or dim"  Crowley makes him an offer  - why rule over a motley crew of demons, when he could reclaim heaven.  As Lucifer threatens to swipe Crowley into obvlivian, Rowena shows up and casts a paralyzing spell.  Then Crowley throws some sulfric acid onto Lucifer's vessel.
While painful, and it doesn't do much for his face.  Rowena's paralyzing spell no longer working, Lucifer puts new meaning to the phrase heal thyself.  Crowley disappears leaving Rowena to fend for herself. Although he'd like to snap her neck, he decides to keep her prisoner - friends closer, enemies closer. What does he have in store?  Stay tuned for the next episode.
