Fifth Episode: Moo Shu To Go
First Aired: February 9, 2016
Tensions escalate between Alec and Clary as they don’t see eye to eye on the best way to hunt down Valentine. But when Jace and Isabelle are sent on an intel mission to the Seelies by Maryse Lightwood, Alec is put in charge of keeping Clary safe, much to both of their chagrin. With his hard-as-nails mother back in town and Clary’s rule-breaking tendencies, Alec finds himself struggling to stick to the Claves rules while keeping his promise to Jace. Meanwhile, the New York City werewolf pack begins their hunt for Clary and The Mortal Cup.
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 start off the episode where episode 4 left off of with Jace seeing with what was wrong with Clary and then Alec gets involved and it’s bad. Well not really Alec just doesn’t want to admit his feelings to Jace, oh his completely clueless like always, on Alec’s feelings of him. We also see a new character in the show. Alec and Isabelle’s mom Maryse Lightwood. She is so pretty and I can’t wait to see more of this character since she seems really good. Maryse sets her three children, yes Jace counts as a Lightwood, up on their missions that they need to go on. Well mostly two of them since she isn’t happy with Alec right now about Clary.
Jace and Isabelle go off to talk to the Seelies to find out that something went wrong when they were following orders from the Shadowhunter order. Who knows what is going to happen with the Seelies and the Shadowhunters now? Hopefully nothing to bad. Alec though starts training Clary but only to get distracted by Magnus, can anyone say MALEC FEELS, anyways Alec runs off to find Clary who is at the Brooklyn Art Academy being invisible. She then takes Alec to get Simon and the three of them get to Clary’s loft. They get the box that she wanted but then she gets kidnapped with Simon by werewolves. Simon is still showing signs of becoming a vampire, oops, and he just thinks that he is sick. Once Jace finds out he is very upset with Alec for letting that happen and it’s just bad for their parabita relationship.
Anyways the people that kidnap her are trying to get her to tell them where the cup is and she doesn’t know but she tells a lie so that she could see Simon again. But that doesn’t happen until she gets put into a cargo hold. She tries to get out with a rune but Luke gets to her and gets her out. He then puts her over his shoulder and tries to get her away when Jace and Alec get to them and big whole war between Luke and one of the people that were holding Clary.
By the end Luke is hurt and Jace tells Alec to take Isabelle back to the Institute while he takes Luke, Clary, and Simon to Magnus for Luke to get better. Let’s just say that Isabelle and Alec aren’t too thrilled with that at all.
You can see Shadowhunters on Freeform on Tuesdays.
