I have to say, I was quite scared going into the episode. But my fears turned unnecessary, in fact, the episode was very enjoyable to watch, despite not much happening, we just learn Shadowworld history. I knew all of it, but it was nice to see how the writers brought it in. I loved Paul’s directing, considering he knew less to nothing of the story or actors. He did an excellent job and it was done very well.
Initially, I was afraid of Sebastian’s history since he wasn’t raised by Valentine, but it looks like it’s going to go in a good direction. But first, let’s talk about demon Sebastian. He keeps getting scarier and scarier. I think he’s going to be a great villain. But also, why didn’t Valentine just move from where-ever they were staying and not send his son (and precious experiment) to demon realms? But then again, he would do something like that.
Now, let’s talk Clace. I knew that Clary was hallucinating, and I was just hoping that it wouldn’t be over the top and it wasn’t. I actually really like Kat’s scenes this episode. A question I still have is what she was seeing when Jace and Izzy found her. I really liked the build-up of the relationship in the episode. It’s not being too rushed and I hope it gets done well, because Clace is one of my biggest OTPs . There was one line that I feel could have been said better otherwise, I am liking it so far. Let’s cross fingers that when they do get together, that it’s good.
So it looks like Maia and Simon are happening. I’m excited to see where it goes. I’m glad their relationship hasn’t moved too fast. The two of them were too cute. Another point I want to talk about is Idris. We didn’t really see much of it but I hope we do by the end of the season.
I’m excited to see where the story goes but nervous because I don’t want them to mess it up. Let’s talk in the comments!
