Episode 6: Of Men and Angels
Luke is taken to Magnus’ lair in the hopes of saving his life; Clary learns about Valentine’s dark history and Luke and Jocelyn’s past; Isabelle and Alec attempt to restore their family name in the eyes of the Clave.
My take on this episode: Another episode of Shadowhunters has come and gone once again and I have to say once again I loved it!
We get to meet Alec and Isabelle’s dad, and brother Max. I have to say that they are exactly what I pictured when I was reading the books and Max is sooo cute and adorable. We start off with a little recap of what has happened on Shadowhunters before we get to the part where Simon, Jace, and Clary get Luke into Magnus’ lair so that he could try and heal him from the Alpha’s bite. All I have to say is that I feel bad for Luke especially after Jocelyn tells him to tell Clary everything about their past so that Clary will be able to unlock some memory to get the Mortal Cup back and away from Valentine.
Magnus sends Jace and Simon off to get some ingredients that he needs while he talks to Clary who ends up drawing while he is explaining stuff to her. Clary finds out things about Jocelyn, Valentine, and Luke that she didn’t know before and with why Jocelyn and Luke didn’t want to tell her. She is a little worried about that information and with how it was supposed to help her. While all of that was happening back at the Institute Max and Mr. Lightwood came through the portal to relax and spend some time there.
Well that and to get Alec to restore their families honor in the eyes of the Clave because of what happened with Clary. Which is kind of sad for Alec with all his dad and mom are willing to do for him. Isabelle wants to try and take Alec’s place. However their mom sees Isabelle as a young version of herself and doesn’t want that for Isabelle. This may explain why their mom is not very kind to Isabelle. Meanwhile Jace and Simon gets the ingredients that is needed while getting into a fight about Clary and Alec on the way there.
Magnus is losing his strength while trying to help Luke from succumbing to the Alpha’s bite. Alec goes to help Magnus and they end up getting that drink before him being sent home by his mom.
The actors are really portraying the characters well and the scenery is much as I imagined it would be. I have to say that I am really happy with this series.
