Can I just say that I love how slowly but surely all the little plot lines they put up is coming together and are showing their purpose.
* The Izzy/Raphael-relationship everyone was so angry about? Turns out that lead to Raphael being the first to notice something wrong with Sebastian being too chummy and “friendly” with people he’s basically just met.
* The whole “clave banned all downworlders from entering the institute”? Turns out that had a part in paving the way for Luke’s new plot, having him take his revenge in his own hands. Making him decide to fight for himself and his pack instead of just fighting for Clary and still somehow believing in the Clave.
* The whole Valentine!Magnus - thing? That’s what makes Magnus open up to and tell Alec things from his past (meaning we might not get the disaster that was them breaking up in the books). It also means that the other downworld-leaders will believe him when he says he wants to fight for the downworld (and not just think he’s agreeing with Alec bc they’re in love).
Now I’m just really looking forward to seeing the reason for the yin fen-addiction and what it’ll lead to, I want to see more backlash for Jocelyn’s death and I want to see Simon getting back with his vampire family and not blindly following Clary around please and thank you!
All in all, this show is doing a great job at building plot lines and I’m proud! ❤
