This week, Shadowhunters fans got a killer episode– literally– that really upped the ante but almost imploded in its final seconds. This episode made me really happy until the very end, which I’ll get to at the end. Overall, it’s a dark, edgy horror thriller with sociopolitical undertones. Relationships are still featured, but they aren’t quite so focal. By the angel, GIVE US MORE OF THIS! Knowing full well that Simon really doesn’t have a band anymore, Clary books Simon a gig at The Hunter’s Moon and already has advertisements going. Because that makes sense. They discuss it at the…

Following a dark, emotional midseason finale, we’re getting back into the swing of things on Shadowhunters. Let’s recap Season 2 Episode 12, “You Are Not Your Own”! As advertised, this episode focuses in on Magnus and Valentine having been body-swapped by Azazel. We have to be honest– We don’t love this device. While the episode does its best to raise the stakes, the one-episode body swap story feels like plot filler. Still, Alan Van Sprang does a pretty good “distressed Magnus Bane” impression in this opener. After the open credits, we go to Clary and Simon naked in bed together.…

Shadowhunters is back! The second half of Season 2 has a lot of unpacking to do after Valentine’s attack on The Institute, so let’s get right to it! We open with a great Jace and Alec training scene. This is the Parabatai-est we’ve ever seen them, reminds us they’re supposed to be best friends. Though their conversation seems lighthearted, you can also see just how troubled Jace is by Valentine’s reveal that he and Clary aren’t siblings. Speaking of Clary, she and Simon are enjoying their day now that Simon is suddenly able to go out in the sun. We still do…

The winter season finale of SHADOWHUNTERS, “By the Light of Dawn,” pushed all the right buttons and made us all happy campers! We recap episode 10 of Shadowhunters, “By the Light of Dawn,” which brings us halfway through season, and nicely answers a lot of questions that fans of the books have had. As much as we love the books by Cassandra Clare, the show is its own entity and took a lot of risks, which has culminated into a successful winter season finale. Recap The wards have been broken at the Institute. Madzie appears in the hallway, but when…

The season finale for BEYOND has come and gone, but if you missed “Into the Light,” read our recap to find out what happened to Holden and Willa and the rest of them.

Holden is holding Willa’s compass that Frost reveals was Celeste’s,…

Clary’s blood oath to Iris is more of a threat to her life than originally thought and the team is on an urgent search to find little Madzie in SHADOWHUNTERS. The “Bound by Blood” episode of Shadowhunters opens to Simon and Clary making out in Simon’s boathouse, getting half naked and stuff when Jace comes in and does what he does best…something about blocking and clocks or roosters, I think. Jace is irritated that Clary is not at the Institute, when suddenly, Clary experiences extreme pain on her hand, which is turning charcoal black. At Magnus’ swanky place, Alec expresses…

Lots of stuff happens in this episode of SHADOWHUNTERS, “Love is a Devil,” including an awesome warlock fight!  In this recap of last night’s Shadowhunters episode, titled “Love is a Devil,” we start off where we left off with Isabelle in last week’s episode. Isabelle is surrounded by vampires and asks for venom. She changes her mind when she realizes she’s a little in over her head. But when they’re about to attack, Raphael stops them and tells them all to release her. They take off like bats outta hell. She pleads with Raphael to bite her to relieve her…

It’s Shadowhunters time, and Sister Cleophas goes walking around the streets of New York City in a hooded robe, unnoticed until she reaches Valentine’s lair. It seems she’s always believed in Valentine’s cause and wants to help, so of course she’s going to tell Val about Clary’s ability to create runes. Man, that secret didn’t even last one episode, and Val knows. Valentine is later talking to an old man, who is chained up. He tells the man that it’s futile…
