MY THOUGHTS: Shadowhunters Season 1 Episodee 111 - "Blood Calls to Blood"
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
After receiving important intel about Valentine from a surprising ally, Clary, Jace and Luke devise a plan to rescue Jocelyn. With the mission looking almost impossible, the three will stop at nothing to rescue Clary's mother and put a stop to Valentine once and for all.
Meanwhile, Inquisitor Herondale arrives at the Institute for Isabelle's trial as Alec turns to Magnus for help.
Huh...More secrets are told, other secrets are revealed. Is it too good to be true...Jace's father...alive!?! Hmmm...Clary seems suspicious of him regardless. Is the strong and confident Jace showing some "weakness"? It also seems to easy that they found Valentine. Again...suspicious. This episode is definitely shrouded in mystery.
All the while, Isabelle is put on trial for treason!?! It's interesting how the "law" is twisted about to fill the needs of one party or the other...in this instance, the Clave. Isabelle does state some relevant points in regards to what's right and what's wrong. Surprisingly, Lydia takes a turn on the stand. Maybe there's some change we see in her...she doesn't see so rigid.
Clary is showing strength as a new Shadowhunter. But the moment she sees her Mom, she's a sniveling frightened little girl...again...just like the way she was in the first episode. Just so annoying....really!?! Get a grip, girl!?! LOL! But, surprisingly, she turned the tables on Valentine. Sneaky! LOL! Then, the big secret is revealed! Whoa! The tables are turned...Jace is now unsure and conflicted with himself and Clary is the confident one.
Much of the storylines are following the book, even though much of the series has changed it around to follow its "secret agent" style. It works...for the show, that is. I can already see that Malec shippers are going to have a difficult time with the slow development between these two favorite characters. I'm already irritated with it...haha! But, it sure does make for good drama...C'mon, Alec! Magnus is already putting himself out there for Alex...Alec need to "man up" and do the same...haha!
Although show does not follow the book series...exactly, it definitely keeps the heart of the storylines in tact. These interesting twists and turns that the show has created makes for a good drama...That I am liking! Yup! I am a fan of this show...haha!
Well, that's all for now, until the next episode Shadowhunters! Just one episode left for this season.
For now, here's a sneak peek at Episode 12
