Season 2 Episode 9
Bound by Blood
When Iris activates her blood oath, Clary has more to worry about than hiding from Valentine and the Downworlders; Isabelle and Raphael get closer; Alec tries to figure out what’s happening with his sister.
My take on this episode: This episode is a day after, I believe, of the last episode and there is some recap but not by much.
Clary and Simon were getting a little steamy in his canoe near the Jade Wolf’s restaurant when Jace interrupted them because Clary and him were needed at the Institute. It was around that time that Clary’s hand started to turn black and the four of them went to get help from Magnus. He can’t do anything about it only Clary can before the blood oath reaches her heart.
Clary is also dealing with a super protective older brother Jace who doesn’t want her to die and a protective boyfriend that also doesn’t want her to die but also doesn’t want to have to kill her either just so she can’t be used by Valentine or be killed by any other Downworlder.
Isabelle has been hanging out at Raphael’s place to get her vampire venom without having to travel far to get it. Magnus finds out with where Isabelle is at a Downworlder meeting between Raphael, himself, Luke, and the Seelie’s. With where the Seelie told Raphael’s secret because he could smell Izzy’s scent on Raphael. Magnus then tells Alec who goes to try and get Isabelle back. She isn’t happy about that and tells him off.
Clary ends up spending time with Simon as the blood oath is getting stronger while Jace is trying to find Iris’s goddaughter. Jace finds her and takes her back to Clary. Once Clary is with the little warlock everything seems to be good but then apparently Valentine has corrupted the little girl and the two of them went off to be with Valentine.
Clary ends up getting saved by Simon, Jace, and Luke.
