2x14 The Fair Folk
Okay, I’ll try to shut off fangirl Isabelle, but I’m still sobbing on the inside, so please don’t judge me, lol! Obviously, as a Clace fan, this episode was a big deal. At first I was really worried about the Seelie Court scene. As a book fan I didn’t know what to expect and was a bit afraid they could not live up to my expectations. More about the Seelie Court later!
Let’s start with the opening scene with Jace playing piano and Sebastian was really lovely. Finally we got to see piano playing Jace. I was waiting for this moment and it was beautiful!
Alec is such a good leader. He looked natural as the new Head of the New York institute and him seeing so confident made me really happy! How he came up with the meetings idea and got every Downworld leader together. The Mr. Lightwood / Mr. Bane scene was super cute. Even though they tried to stay formal, they had hearteyes during the entire scene.
It was nice to see Meliorn and Raphael together again. Meliorn is one of my favorite Downworlders. His line about Sebastian (him ‘mistaking’ him for Jace) was so funny! If I didn’t know any better, I appreciated Sebastian’s comments to Raphael. He’s right, their relationship is toxic and based on an addiction. It would be better for Izzy to stay away from Raphael. But, something tells me Sebastian want Izzy for himself and has a plan for her?
Who the hell does he have locked up in that room?? I’m honestly very excited to see more of this psycho side of Sebastian.
Somehow, Simon succeeded to make me laugh. When he first showed up with Clary to meet Jace I was annoyed with him not taking the meeting with the Seelie Queen seriously, but when they got there he had some funny lines.
It was nice to see Maryse back at the institute. I loved her scenes with her children. It really does look like she’s sorry for her actions.
I thought Luke’s actions were very out of character? I understand his hate towards Valentine, but him wanting to kill Valentine in his cell didn’t make sense to me. It just came out of nowhere in my opinion. Anyone else got A.D. (Pretty Little Liars) feelings when Luke got the calls? Oh, and I still do not trust Ollie. I think she’ll find out soon enough what Luke exactly is.
Finally, the Seelie Queen / Seelie Court. How I loved these scenes! I love Lola as the Seelie Queen, she played the role so well! I immediately was creeped out by her. Great casting!
The Clace kiss… What can I say? It was so good!! Oh, my feelings. Of course I felt bad for Simon. His face when he saw her kissing Jace was so sad. But, the Clace fan in me was too excited to give it a lot of attention. The intensity that was described in the books… I felt it. The look in both their eyes when the kiss ended, yes, yes, yes!! They did a wonderful job with this scene! Ruelle’s song ‘The Other Side’ made it even more perfect. How I love her music.
How I loved this episode. How I’ll replay the Clace kiss the next two weeks. Yes, two weeks. Unfortunately Shadowhunters won’t return till July 10th.
