Theory for 2x04 and beyond
So everyone is talking about who will be dying on next weeks episode and according to sources it is not only the “changing point” in the season but that it will also be a known character and I’ve seen a lot of speculation that it will be Jocelyn who dies and as someone who read the books I found that theory to be quite absurd but the more that I think about it the more it actually sounds realistic. So my first thought was that it would be Raj consider what was said in the sneak peek “you’re going to end up like that corpse” it seemed plausible until I couldn’t shake the feeling that I had seen bts photos of Raj from later episodes (please correct me if Im wrong). So anyway back to the theory of Jocelyn’s death, I believe that if it is true it won’t be for long, and also again foreshadowing from the sneak peeks “Alec asking Magnus out” the scene ends with Magnus telling Alec to “go battle his demons” that along side the 2 clips in the trailer for 2x04 of Alec with blood on his hands and of him looking up at a camera with what looks like black eyes, I think Alec will be the one to kill Jocelyn while possessed. It would also explain the clips of Alec stating “I would do anything to take back those 30 seconds” and of Clary telling Jace that she “Cant do this” while in the traditional white for mourning and also of Simon holding Clary as she cries and oh hello not to mention in the synopsis for episode 2x05 Luke is missing so there are a lot of factors that play into it, so many that I think the storyline will bleed into Magnus’ character arc for the season. Out of grief for Clary and guilt for Alec, they will go not only to that creepy woman in 2x05 but also to Magnus in hopes to resurrect Jocelyn in which he tells them “this is dark magic”. But of course Magnus will help them, resurrecting Jocelyn, leading to Magnus eventual being almost arrested by the clave for upsetting the balance of life and “using his magic badly” before Alec saves him giving him the hard decision to either flee with Magnus or being de-runed by the Clave, giving us the “heartbreaking” performance for Matt in 2x10 we were teased about. Wow this was much longer than I intended it to be but oh my am I excited to see what happens Monday!!!
