My Thoughts on the Shadowhunters Season 2 Finale

Shadowhunters Season 2 Recap
If you haven't watched the season 2 finale of Shadowhunters then I highly suggest you stop reading this post right now and go and watch it ASAP so you can be equally as lost about what to do with your life now season 2 is over. I also apologise in advance if this post is a bit rambly and all over the place, I just have so many thoughts and feelings.

You're back! Did you watch it? Good! (If you haven't then please stop reading because this post contains spoilers and I don't want to be that person who spoils an awesome tv show for someone). Come back when you're ready or you know... Continue reading and spoil it for yourself. Don't say I didn't warn you!

First and foremost, I really love the new Seelie queen. Alright, she's still a cunning little bitch who twists the hell out of the truth and made a deal with Valentine and then our beloved Simon, but damn I love her new "outfit" as she so cleverly puts it. Speaking of Simon, I really hope and pray that he finally becomes Clary's Parabatai at some point in the show and that the Clave changes the Law to allow Shadowhunters and Downworlders to become Parabatai. I want it more than anything else.

And speaking of Parabatai bonds, I would have thought that Jace dying and the Parabatai rune fading and disappearing completely would have been a sort of "loophole" for the bond to be broken but even that prevails death and I'm not sure how I feel about that. On one hand, it's comforting that even if your Parabatai is brought back from the dead by an angel your bond would still be there but also a little bit disconcerting that if you suddenly realise you've chosen the wrong person to be your Parabatai, there's no way out of it. Oops!

Since Clary can also create new Runes, I'm also hoping that she is eventually able to extend or change the Parabatai Rune so that it encompasses unrequited love and creates a loophole through the Law; I doubt the Clave would approve of such a thing but at this point, who cares? The Clave surely cannot be trusted any longer as they withheld information and lied about having the Mortal Sword in their possession.

How freaky deaky were those demons too? I certainly wouldn't like to wake up to one of those flying around my bedroom in the dark and Magnus not being around to incinerate one the moment it gets a little too close for comfort. Oh and those little things that come out of it after it's killed. Eurgh! *shudders*

I was actually eating my dinner when we watched this scene and suffice to say, I was sort of put off eating after that haha.

I'm so glad Clary just managed to stop Valentine in time and that he is finally dead. I'm not ashamed to say I internally cheered Clary on while she was fighting him. I really wasn't expecting her to stab him so many times but let's be honest, he totally deserved it and got what was coming to him in the end. What a little fiery badass she is. I love her to pieces and have become quite attached to her character. And as weird as it may sound, her and Izzy have become like my sisters. In-fact they've all become like my extended family in a way and now the season is over I'm really going to miss them all.

On another note, we now we have a bigger fish to fry... Sebastian. Who apparently will just not stay dead and who seems far worse than his asshole of a father. And that's saying something because he was a serious piece of pain in the ass!

Also, who on earth was that charred looking woman at the end? Was that Jocelyn? He called her mother and she called him son so I can only assume it was her unless it was just a mother-like figure who took care of him in the underworld or whatever that hell-hole is called. If it was Jocelyn, does that mean Sebastian somehow dragged her down there when she was killed in the Institute? Hmmm... I really hope it's not her, to be honest, but that would some serious plot twist if it is. Damn you, cliffhangers!

I'm not crying, you are! Although I did shed a little tear during this scene I kind of had an inkling she was going to use her one wish to bring him back. She loves him too so of course she'd wish for him back because when you love someone you know you just can't live without them and it just wouldn't be Shadowhunters without Jace and his ever-clenching jaw.

All's well that ends well. Or maybe not...
