MY THOUGHTS: Shadowhunters Season 1 Episode 110- "This World Inverted"
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.
(formerly ABC Family)
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
Clary and Jace get a tip from Meliorn that they can find Valentine by locating a portal in another dimension, but only Clary can venture into this new world. What Clary finds in this alternative universe is that life there is as if the threat of demons no longer existed and Shadowhunters were no longer needed. While she realizes that his dimension is the life she always dreamed of, Clary must act fast or she will lose herself i the alternative world forever.
Meanwhile, Alec and Isabelle must face the consequences of the Downworlder attack.
Ummm....Say whaaat!?! This was an interesting episode. Closing some open subplots and further diving into other subplots. The alternate timeline was interesting and fascinating which it gave us a view of a totally opposite world without Shadowhunters.
It has been pretty apparent that the series has moved away from the book. Like an "alternate timeline"... haha, character storylines have been altered to fit the direction the series is going, especially at the end of the episode. This will be very curious to see where the screenwriters are going with this. As I finished watching this episode, various theories ran through my mind. It did seem too easy that Clary and Jace fall into Valentine's hideout...and no one is there...except....you know! That is...if you watched the episode.
However, I am somewhat torn with how they are writing and portraying the whole "parabatai bond" between Jace and Alec. It does have that torn and dramatic flair to it, but...really...OMG...Will they get passed this!?! I know that the show is moving away from the books, but their parabatai bond has such an important influence in the books, I just hope that they are just writing obstacles that will test that. But, that bond is showing a lot of strain. Moreover, I am very impressed at how headstrong Isabelle has become. I am very interested in what will happen to her in the next episode. What will happen to her at the trial?!?
Well, I am still processing the events in this episode. I may have to watch it again...haha! But, I definitely can say that these events have definitely sparked my curiosity on what will happen next. Even the promo preview for the next episode just intensifies my curiosity.
Well, that's all for now, until the next episode Shadowhunters!
