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.

Onwards?

 

Darker Impulses

If you were wondering when someone from the Institute might give voice to the notion that it’s the connection between Clary and Jonathan that makes Jonathan vulnerable then this week’s episode is for you.

Enter Consul Penhallow’s daughter Ailine, who despite being a good friend to Jace, is not over-keen on Clary, and her special connection to brother Jonathan.

It’s during a charged sparring session with Clary, that Aline really let’s fly (and not just with her weapons) and challenges Clary’s assertion that she wants Jonathan brought in as much as the rest of the Institute does.

Maybe it’s the stress of recent weeks, but Aline’s words land harder than her blows (which are quite formidable in their own right), causing Clary to embrace a disturbing dark impulse.

Jonathan would be proud.
