Alec and Jace’s relationship continues to strain in this show as Alec is willing to risk his parabatai bond with Jace in order to try and get the Mortal Cup. Yes, he think it is to save Isabelle, but we all know that the Clave would just take the cup and then crucify Isabelle. Alec is starting to lose sight at the bigger picture and it’s going to cause friction between him and the rest of his friends.
Clary goes to an alternative world to try and find Valentine. It is very appealing in this world as she is in a loving relationship with Jace and good friendships with Simon, Isabelle, and Alec. It’s a carefree world where there is no war. But she keeps her head clear and does what she needs to do in order to get what she needs. The alternate universe is a fun look at what life would have been like for Clary and like with the books. the best part of the show is the few scenes we get of Izzy and Simon. She is nerdy like how Simon would want her and they are dating and are the cutest couple ever.
