MY THOUGHTS: Shadowhunters Season 1 Episode 107 - "Major Arcana"
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
After piecing together the clues as to where her mother hid the Mortal Cup, Clary, Jace, Alec and Isabelle are on the clock to find its hiding place before anyone else. But with demons and Downworlders lurking everywhere, obtaining the Cup may not be as easy as they had hoped.
Meanwhile, as Simon's symptoms become increasingly worse, he fears he is turning into a vampire.
Alec and Isabelle have to "grow up" and deal with their responsibilities.,,,and deal with the pressures from The Clave. Clary and Jace have a lead as to where the Mortal Cup is hidden. Moreover, the Mortal Cup search intensifies when Clary realizes where it is hidden. The Mortal Cup has been located...Clary just has to figure out how to take it out of its hiding place. However, they run into a bit of trouble when they find the Mortal Cup. Clary is learning how to be a Shadowhunter as she goes, like "on-the-training." All the while, Simon is dealing with his vampiric symptoms.
I don't know, but Katherine McNamara is growing on me as Clary. I was very skeptical at the start of this series, but it seems that she's getting a better handle on her development of her character. However, the season isn't over yet, we will have to see...
Jace and Clary's "relationship" continues to progress, but duty calls in search of the one thing Valentine wants. Looks like Clary takes that step to show Jace how she feels. The attraction and tension is there, but feelings seem to get in the way of performing their Shadowhunter duties. However, I'm interested in seeing this attraction between Magnus and Alec progress. And...I'm liking it. Maybe Magnus will be the who brings Alec out in realizing what he feels...and realize and accept his attraction to Magnus!?! Maybe!?! Let's hope so... That flicker between them is undeniable!
I found it amusing how Simon is dealing with his "symptoms," especially when his Mom and sister get involved. His hallucinations gets worse which eventually leads him back to the vampire lair. Simon seeks out answers...and look who it to him! That's right...Camille! But, Simon might not like the answers he receives.
Well, that's all for now, until the next episode Shadowhunters!
For now, here's a preview of Episode 108 - "Bad Blood"
