In this week’s episode, titled ‘Major Arcana’, Simon finally starts to crack with his vampire transformation and Clary makes a decision on who she wants. We get an exciting new show. Isabelle fights with the desire to do what she wants and getting her parents’ approval. She knows that they don’t like her lifestyle but like Alec says ‘you can’t change who you are’. Alec should listen to his own advice because he continues to ignore his attraction to Magnus.
The show is really starting to gel together and it starts with their leads. Clary and Jace are really starting to embrace their chemistry and it shows in their characters. This week we got to see them bicker (characters acting) and be sarcastic with one another. It’s like they are a real couple. Well almost.
Simon’s relationship with Clary gets strained in this show as he ask for help for his disease but she is too wrapped up in her thing. I think considering what he’s going through, it is a pretty big deal. Since she won’t help him, he goes to someone who will. Camille.
Clary gets the cup out of the card which means that it’s going to be a bigger target on her back. No doubt Valentine will find out and put more pressure in finding her and the cup. For the Shadowhunters, they will have to figure out what their next move is going to be. Perhaps the most exciting thing to happen (yes even more exciting than Clary finding The Mortal Cup) is that Jace and Clary finally have their first kiss. We had to wait seven episodes but it has happened and now we can all sign in unison because it was amazing.
