Shadowhunters 2x14 Recap
Ok, is it just me or did this episode fly by?? I’m definitely going to have to re-watch it tomorrow but here are some of my initial thoughts on the episode:
I love Alec confidently jumping right into his role as head of the institute and organizing this shadowhunter/downworlder alliance cabinet. I also appreciate that he needed Magnus there as the High Warlock not as his boyfriend (sidenote holy shitakadangoagoi he said MY BOYFRIEND) (I legit squealed) and I hope Magnus didn’t take that the wrong way and understood, his expression was a little unsure and I’m confused as to how we are supposed to interpret it. Maryse is back and she’s actually being a supportive, nice, mother…I enjoyed seeing that new side of her and I hope there’s more of it in the future. Also, I hope she leaves Robert, she does deserve to be happy and loved despite the way she’s behaved in the past. I’m nervous for Luke and how easily he fell into Sebastian’s trap and didn’t use his cop intuition after getting the fire message. He should have been very suspicious of the whole thing but instead he just blindly followed the mystery voice…concerning. Speaking of Luke, I do not like or trust Ollie…she’s hella suspicious and way too nosy, something is up with her. I was shocked by the Seelie queen but I actually liked that she was portrayed by a young girl because it actually made her more powerful and fearsome. Other than her being cool, that whole scene was predictable from the moment Simon tagged along. Am I glad Climon seems to finally be over? Yes. Do I want to sit through awkward Clace moments for who knows how long? Not particularly. I’m glad Rizzy is dead but I do appreciate Raphael’s instant distrust of Sebastian and I hope that comes back into play further down the road. Anyway, I really enjoyed the episode but I’m sad we have to wait 2 weeks now damn it Independence Day lol. Thanks for reading!!
p.s Mr. Bane and Mr. Lightwood??…how extra but also how fucking cute!
