SHADOWHUNTERS SCOOP: “To the Night Children”
BY Jennifer Griffin
Published 3 years ago
It’s been a tumultuous couple of weeks for Shadowhunters and Downworlders alike (not to mention us Mundanes), but this week’s episode of Shadowhunters takes a moment to examine the trajectory of some of its key players, as Maia, Luke, Simon, Alec, Magnus and Isabelle are each forced to weigh the pros and cons of their recent actions, and examine their own conscience in the process.
Meanwhile, as the city recoils from the grisly murders at the Jade Wolf, the Institute considers its next move against Jonathan.
We’ve seen this week’s episode “To the Night children” a little early, thanks to our friends at Freeform, and have prepped a number of teasers for you below.
As always, we never reveal major plot point or character reveals that would spoil an episode head of its air time. That said, we urge you to proceed with a smidge of caution anyway, as one girl’s gentle teasers is another’s great big flaming spoiler.
If you would like to learn more about ScreenSpy’s strict but let’s face it slightly boring Spoiler Policy, you can do so through the link in this sentence.
Following the massacre at the Jade Wolf, Heidi is feeling on top of the world.
So much so that she has begun work on plans to take over the Downworld, convinced that her “time to rule” has finally come.
The only hitch is Heidi’s plans are Maia and Jordan, who survived the attack, and Simon, who is determined to bring the truth of what happened to the Institute.
Of course, it should all be an open and shut case, but clever Heidi may know a thing or two about Institute protocol that she can still use to her advantage.
