Episode Reviews: Season 1 | Season 2
With Valentine and Sebastian on the loose, the Downworlders come together to make a surprising choice.
Hail and Farewell:
With only one more week to the season finale, things are definitely getting intense. After last weeks episode, I knew that everyone in the Insitute will be on edge. Actually not just in the institute, but the whole of the shadow world.
With Valentine and Sebastian still on the loose, everyone is out there to find them or kill them. Clary finds a way to track them, while tension is still high between Magnus and Alec. The downworlders are making hard decisions.
I felt that Hail and Farewell was a really big episode for Clary. Throughout the series so far we make her way through the shadow world, navigate her news skills and angel powers, and all the ups and downs.
Clary had to really stand up for herself and those she has come to love in Hail and Farewell. She had to harness her both her angel powers and those she has had to learn as a shadowhunter. I really enjoyed Clary in this episode. I loved her strength and her power.
Clary and Jace
We get a really powerful moment between these two in Hail and Farewell and I am terrified to see what is come with these two. I really felt the chemistry between the two in this episode, especially in that particular scene.
I also liked that we got to see a different side of both Clary and Jace. We get to see them connect and really show their feelings.
Magnus and Alec
There is still lots of tension between Magnus and Alec, and we could really feel in Hail and Farewell. It’s still very raw and real and I liked how this tension was portrayed.
Their relationship shows the difference between shadowhunters and downworlders. It shows the tension, the different way that they are treated and the hierarchy.
Things are getting worse and worse with Sebastian. We see how angry, crazy and how the demon blood has changed him.
There was this amazing scene with Jace and Sebastian that was just so good to watch! My eyes were glued to my screen and I loved it.
There were some amazing fight scenes in Hail and Farewell. I loved how Jace and Alec worked together, as well as Izzy and Clary. I loved seeing the shadowhunters in action. It was fun, intense and made the episode that more interesting. I cannot wait to see what next season brings. I think it’s going to pretty epic.
Hail and Farewell, was intense and kept me waiting on the edge. There was tension everywhere we went and that just made it more interesting. I loved it. Clary and Jace, Magnus and Alec, Shadowhunters and downworlders. And that ending! Next week, is going to be crazy and I cannot wait.
