‘Shadowhunters’ Recap: This World Inverted

Episode 10, “The World Inverted,” is an interesting one for a number of reasons. There’s some major character development this week for Simon and Luke, a really bad week for Alec Lightwood, a fairly confusing week for Clary Fray/Fairchild, and a week that is a mix of all three for Magnus Bane. It’s also the first time the show has ventured away from the plotlines of the books. One rumor is that this is because Disney (who owns ABC and therefore also Freeform) wanted to do a little cross-promotion for...

‘Shadowhunters’ Recap: Rise Up

Episode 8 may have lined up all the dominos, but episode 9 drops a nuclear bomb on them. This is the most gut-wrenching episode yet, and it comes from all sides. Simon rules the episode hands-down, but Izzy, Alec, and Jace bring some major gravitas of their own. There is huge fallout from the decisions made in Bad Blood, and none of it gets wrapped up here. Shadowhunters and Downworlders alike are facing a new world now, and emotions are at an all- time high. The highs: Simon. Now a...

‘Shadowhunters’ Recap: Bad Blood

The last few episodes have moved so fast that it’s a wonder Freeform isn’t fielding complaints of whiplash from viewers. Episode 8 offers a break from trying to keep up with a racing plot, but doesn’t ease up on the emotional rollercoaster side of things. Instead, viewers are treated to an hour akin to watching 1000 dominos be lined up. The smallest unskilled movement could bring it all crashing down, but the anticipation of the inevitable collapse is exhilarating. There’s so many plot pieces carefully placed here- hearts on the...

‘Shadowhunters’ Recap: Major Arcana

For all the pacing problems that plagued Shadowhunters early on, the show has sure figured out how to run with viewers now. Episode seven, “Major Arcana” sprints through three major plotlines (and a half- dozen minor ones) in an hour, all of which focus heavily on family. Izzy takes dramatic action to protect Alec from their parents, Clary pulls out one of the best plans yet to retrieve the Mortal Cup from her mother’s hiding place, and Simon’s continued spiral off the deep end of sanity (& humanity) finally draws...

‘Shadowhunters’ Recap: Of Men And Angels

Coming on the heels of the biggest cliffhanger so far, “Of Men and Angels” opens with a bang. The teaser trailer for this episode promised viewers big action, and boy did it deliver. Nearly half the episode is vital backstory about Valentine and the origins of the Circle, but as the writers have finally figured out how to tell it in a way that keeps viewers’ interest, there’s nothing slow or weak about it. Warlock magic, flashbacks, werewolves, progressively-turning vampires, disapproving mothers- it’s all here. In fact, it took two...

‘Shadowhunters’ Preview: Of Men And Angels

It looks like viewers get to hop back on board the Backstory Express with episode 6 of Freeform’s urban fantasy series, Shadowhunters. Previous trips have been fraught with plot-stopping stall outs and a few trips off the rails, but there’s hope around the bend nonetheless. The High Warlock of Brooklyn is at the controls, and there hasn’t been a scene yet that Magnus Bane hasn’t stolen with a snap of his magic-filled fingers. This time around, he’s got both the power and the information needed by the gang. Luke is...

‘Shadowhunters’ Recap: Moo Shoo To Go

Trying to speak for all Shadowhunters fans is a dangerous thing, but one thing that the entire fanbase can probably agree on is that it’s nice to see the show finally able to keep up its momentum from week to week. Episode 4 was a solid ride from start to finish, and this week’s offering, “Moo Shoo To Go,” is no slouch either. New characters, new relationships, and new one-liners make this a high week for just about everyone. No episode is ever perfect, and this one has its low...

‘Shadowhunters’ Recap: Raising Hell

Episode 4, “Raising Hell,” is the stuff of fangirl (and fanboy) dreams, and thank the Angel for that. After last week’s all-talk-all- the-time offering, viewers were dying for action more than Simon is just plain dying. Luckily, Freeform delivers an episode that not only advanced the plot, but does so while keeping everyone awake. Time to review the highs and lows of this week. The high: Magnus. It’s been said in every episode review before, but there’s not a scene that the High Warlock of Brooklyn can’t control with a...

‘Shadowhunters’ Recap: Dead Man’s Party

Shadowhunters’s third episode, “Dead Man’s Party,” was just that- an episode. It aired on time, for the proper amount of time, on the correct channel, and it (minisculely) moved the plot forward. These are all things that happened. Unfortunately for fans, that’s about all that happened. For an episode that should have been amazing- the gang went to a biker bar AND a hotel run by vampires, after all- viewers were left with nothing than a whole lot of talking and very little action (Melinore’s fairy homestead seeing the exception). The writers did manage to find just enough of a pulse in their body of exposition to...

‘Shadowhunters’ Recap: The Descent Into Hell Isn’t Easy

All right fellow Shadowhunter fans, it’s time to talk about this week’s episode, “The Descent Into Hell Isn't Easy.” There was action, there was intrigue, there was verbal sparring, there was oh-my-god-it’s-more-exposition. But overall, there was a decent second episode with some definite highs and lows. The highs: Hodge’s burning rune. The Clave does not mess around with their gag orders. Every time Hodge speaks of his traitorous past, his neck burns more than the smolder in Jace’s eyes. Unfortunately for Hodge, he’s the one with all the answers. Clary alternates between demanding answers and agonizing over the pain she’s causing Hodge, which just goes to show that while her...
