Season 2 Episode 8
Love Is a Devil (February 20, 2017)
Tasked with arranging his brother Max’s Rune Ceremony, Alec grabs the opportunity for his family to get to know Magnus; with tensions flying, Max’s big event quickly becomes an evening where they all must face their biggest fears.
My take on this episode: Izzy is still dealing with being addicted to vampire venom and isn’t really shown all that much in this episode at all. Izzy was of course pestering Alec like any normal sister would do when Max comes running up to them and tells them about him completing all his stuff to be able to have his rune ceremony. Izzy isn’t happy with their mom and leaves.
Alec tells Magnus about his idea of letting him throw a party for Max on this special occasion of getting runes. Magnus is worried that it won’t be a good idea with how his mom doesn’t like the idea of Magnus and Alec dating. Alec is still able to convince him and he throws a good party.
Clary and Simon are together in this episode and I’m still not sure on what to think about that. I mean I like Clary and Simon together as friends and not boyfriend and girlfriend.
Once basically everyone is there at the party the first one to be affected by seeing their biggest fears is Clary with seeing Simon flirting with Maia who is there as a bartender. Then after that it all goes downhill as each one is affected that is at the party besides Izzy, Magnus, their mom, and Max.
Magnus wasn’t happy about having an intruder in his penthouse and sends Iris to Idris to deal with the Clave about what she’s been doing for Valentine in this episode.
Anyways until the next time enjoy this review brought to you by
