We left off on a pretty big cliffhanger last week on Shadowhunters. I didn’t like that Lilith went to see Magnus. I didn’t want him to be in harm’s way but it was much worse than that.
Lilith had landed on Magnus’s (Harry Shum Jr.) doorstep to find a way to take away Jace’s (Dominic Sherwood) love for Clary (Katherine McNamara). If only Magnus knew what he was doing. I’m wasn’t 100 percent sure if her plan would succeed. I kept telling myself that if it does, they will overcome this. Elena and Damon survived Elena erasing her memories, why can’t Clace survive this? Now that Jace’s feelings for Clary are gone, I still believe they can fall in love again, but that doesn’t mean this couple needs one more obstacle to overcome. It’s a spell, and as Bonnie says, there’s always a loophole. I realize I’m mixing lore from different TV shows, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t true.
Clace may have a dark road ahead, and it looks like Malec will too. It all started with Alec (Matthew Daddario) asking Magnus to move in. I love Malec, and I think they are one of the best couples on the show, but when Magnus said they’ve been dating for less than two months, it all came into perspective. I hated the look on Alec’s face, but Magnus wasn’t wrong. Things have already moved pretty fast for this couple. I thought they had been together a lot longer than that. I don’t want this to break them. It’s not time yet and that’s okay. Then Alec had to go snooping. At least he came clean with Magnus. Alec thought he found a box of one Magnus’s old boyfriend’s things, but it was of all of the people Magnus has loved and outlived. That really put things into perspective. How do you deal with the fact that your boyfriend will outlive you and find another? It’s not Magnus’s fault, it’s just how it is. This may be too deep of a first relationship for Alec to get into. He hasn’t had any past loves, and Magnus has had many. I hope they can overcome this and they can grow as a couple.
While two couples are having a rocky time, Izzy (Emeraude Toubia) is going on a first date, with a mundane. She seriously didn’t think this through, because when she was asked about work, she panicked and said she designs jewelry. Still, there might be a second date. He went after her when she ran off, and stitched her up. If she could only tell him the truth. It was sweet when he wanted to protect her, but Izzy does not need protecting.
Simon (Alberto Rosende), on the other hand, may need protecting, or at least saving. I love that Jace took an interest and wanted to help Simon. They always have amazingly awkward moments together. If Jace didn’t get involved, we probably would have waited a long time before we found out what Kyle (Chai Hansen) was. I knew he was something. He healed way too quickly. It doesn’t surprise me that he’s a werewolf because he knew Luke (Isaiah Mustafa). Turns out, he’s from a secret society of wolves, and he’s here to help Simon. When Simon found out the truth, he was not happy. It’s moments like these that make me love Simon. He really doesn’t care what anyone is, he values honesty. Kyle knew so much about him, but he didn’t catch the thing about honesty. That would have worked better. But at least Simon has someone helping him.
