Eighth Episode: Bad Blood
First Aired: March 1, 2016
Alec and Clary are forced to make some hard decisions.
With word of Alec, Jace, and Isabelle’s “extracurricular activities” with Clary reaching The Clave, a convoy is sent to observe the Lightwoods running the New York Institute. Once The Clave representative arrives, it is very clear how much trouble the Lightwoods are in.
Meanwhile, Clary is faced with a devastating decision.
My take on this episode: We start this episode off with a little flashback of some of the episodes that were before this one. After that we see Clary and Jace holding the Mortal Cup before Isabelle steals it. Then we see Alec at the big computer before the sirens going off as there is an intruder on the grounds. That intruder happens to be Raphael holding a dead Simon thanks to Camille. The four of them get the two into the Institute where Raphael tells Clary that she has two ultimatums for fledging Simon.
While that happens Alec and Isabelle find out about The Clave sending someone to look over the Institute. This someone is a new character by the name of Lydia Branwell. A lot of stuff has happened in this episode and all the while it was so good.
Lydia seems like an awesome character and can’t wait to see more from her. I kind of like the idea of her and Alec together despite Alec’s flirtation with Magnus.
