MY THOUGHTS: Shadowhunters Season 106 - "Of Men and Angels"
Based on Cassandra Clare's series The Mortal Instruments, Shadowhunters is an all new TV series on Freeform (formerly ABC Family) that follows Clary Fray's journey into the shadow world where she will the truth about herself, downworlders, and demons while searching for her mother.
Based on the novels by:
Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray
Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland
Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood
Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis
Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood
Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane
Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway
With Luke in dire need of help, Jace, Clary and Simon take him to Magnus' lair in hopes of saving his life. Once there, the story of how Valentine came to be evill, and Jocelyn and Luke's past is revealed to Clary in hopes of triggering her memory of what happened to The Mortal Cup.
Meanwhile, Isabelle and Alec are tasked to restore their family name in the eyes of The Clave.
Well, this episode gave viewers a bit of history into Clary's family history. While they try to save Luke's life, the Lightwoods seem to be under scrutiny by The Clave; hence, the visit by the parents. Uh oh...what does that mean for Alec and Isabelle?!?
This episode seems to focus on family history in which viewers get a more deeper character development of each of their personalities...and why. Seems that Luke knows more than what Clary has learned so far. We find out how Luke became a werewolf, and how Jocelyn and Luke's relationship developed. As Luke reveals to Clary details of their history, she's puts the pieces together and figures out where the Mortal Cup is hidden. Hmmm...
Family drama seems to have taken hold with the Lightwoods. What is it that has Alec and Isabelle's parents all worked up?!? Alec and Isabelle has been given an "ultimatum" in order to save the family honor?!? What is so dire that Alec and Isabelle must do their duty for the family?
It is apparent that Alec is confused, especially with his attraction to Magnus. The development between the two is too darling! Magnus is being coy (as he puts it), and Alec, well, he's got all that pent up feelings.
As for Simon...he's more confused with every moment he feels the "change" happen to him. He seems to have an idea, but he's even more confused about it. I wonder how long it will be until everyone else notices that he's transitioning into vampire!?!
More and more is happening as the search for this Mortal Cup continues. Tensions between the Shadowhunters and the Downworlders continually increases as the threat of Valentine intensifies.
Well, that's all for now, until the next episode Shadowhunters!
For now, here's a sneak peek at Episode 7 - "Major Arcana"
