(formerly ABC Family)
Based on the novels by:
Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray

Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis
Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood
Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane
Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway
The Institute is in full swing as everyone is preparing for the wedding of Alec and Lydia. Lydia is getting final touches made on her wedding dress, the wedding decorations are set and Isabelle is trying to figure out a way to throw a traditional, mundane bachelor party for her brother – whether he likes it or not. During what should be a time of great celebration for many is far from it as they examine their relationships. Alec is struggling on two sides – his wedding is one of the biggest days in his life and his parabatai should be at his side, yet he and Jace are still at odds. Alec also continues to struggle with his feelings for Magnus, especially when Magnus won't give up on Alec. And as the Institute is buzzing with romance, Clary is desperate to work things out with Jace, but he is keeping her at arm's length.
Oh I know this wedding has gotten a lot of Malec shippers up in arms...haha! Well...I'm one of those shippers not happy with this whole situation. But then again, there's always a plot twist that makes for a good drama. In the meantime, Jace is conflicted and confused since the revelation that Valentine is his father!?! So glad that the show is staying true with this plot twist. Well, it makes for interesting complications between Clary and Jace.
Clary worries for her mother; Magnus tries to convince Alec to follow his heart; Valentine continues to be a threat. How did Valentine know where Clary, Jace, and Magnus go? Suspicions are a buzz as to who could it be... There is a traitor among them!?!
Will Alec go through with the wedding? Or will he choose Magnus? That was an intense moment... Whoa! I am sure every Malec shipper watching was ecstatic and overjoyed to see their first kiss...lol! Although Alec made his choice, he is still unsure of himself. Alec just has to explore to figure out if he made the right decision. We all know that choosing Magnus was the right decision...haha! Wow...gotta hand it to Lydia for taking it well. But then again, she already knew how Alec felt...about Magnus.
After each episode, the subtle changes, made away from the book, seems to come together in its own direction. However, the series does make for an interesting adaptation of this popular book series. I can see that fans with their reservations about the show will undoubtedly fall in love with the series, too.
Well, that's all for now, until the next episode Shadowhunters!
